HUMBOLDT — It was scorching hot Friday night at Humboldt Speedway, but not so hot as to bother a full field of the Midwest’s top drivers in four classes.

Ray’s Metal Depot B-Mod action featured the return of Andy Bryant of Fort Scott, who picked up where he left off: in the winner’s circle.

He was followed by runner-up Dillion McCowan out of Urbana, Mo. Cole Campbell, of Mexico, Mo., placed third, Jake Richards of Lansing claimed fourth, and Jon Sheets of Nevada, Mo., rounded out the top 5.

In the Love’s Travel Stops Midwest Modified feature, rising star Jackson McGowen of Humboldt added another win to his growing resume. Savonburg’s Ethan Laymons finished second, with Mitch Coulter of Fort Scott third. Chanute driver Dallas Joyce  was fourth, while Ryan Smith of Moran placed fifth.

Coming to Humboldt from Camdenton, Mo., was USRA Tuners feature winner Tim Day. Humboldt ace Brandon Vink locked up second, while Terry Williams of Springfield, Mo., came in third. Fourth went to Clint Haigler of Humboldt, Maddyson Tyler of Parsons captured fifth.

Derrek Wilson of Chanute continues his domination of Home Savings Bank Factory Stock with the feature win, with Ethan Vance of Chanute in second, Brian Knisley of Coffeyville third, Humboldt’s Trey Stipp in fourth and Scott Collins fifth.

This week, the USMTS Modifieds make the Hummer stop in Humboldt as part of their nationwide tour.
