Racing got underway on Saturday, June 29, at Central Missouri Speedway on Midwest Coating race night with 94 race teams checked in.

Pure Stock Recap

Jason Ryun and Spencer Reiff made up the front row at the start of the 12-lap main event to start the second half of the race program. Ryun took command from the onset of the event with Reiff, Logan Headley and Marshall Jewett not far behind.

By lap seven, Ryun had amassed a half straightaway lead. Caution flew on lap seven as Ryun continued to lead Reiff, Headley, Jewett and Joey Harper. Jewett was the main on the move in the late stages of the race but in the final pair of laps, Jewett and Ryun raced hard for the win.

As Jewett was going for the lead, contact was made with the leader the pair contacted Jewett spinning from contention. After the last restart, Ryun went on to claim the win with Reiff second, followed by Headley, Harper and Jonathan Evans.

Mod-Lite Recap

Brian Ziegler and Dillon Raffurty earned the front-row starting positions for the night’s 20-lap main event. Dillon Raffurty took the lead early in the main event with Ziegler and Ed Griggs running close as Donnie Dannar sat fourth. Griggs moved to second by lap five but a pair of cautions slowed the early race action. On the restart, Ziegler and Griggs moved close to the leader but Dillon Raffurty pulled away.

Shortly after, Griggs moved forward on the low side and went to the front by lap twelve. The race was a barn-burner over the closing laps as Griggs used up the entire track to fend off a hard-charging Dillon Raffurty for the win. In the end, Griggs prevailed as the pair crossed the line going hard for the win. Dillon Raffurty was second, followed by Ziegler, David Raffurty, and Michael Raffurty.

B-Mod Recap

Dakota Foster and Patrick Royalty set up the front row for the night’s 20-lap main event. Royalty took the lead early over Foster and Jake Richards by nearly a half straightaway at lap five. Behind the top three were Brad Smith, Cody Brill and Bobby Russell racing for a top-five run. By the race’s midway point, Foster broke away from his battle with Richards to move towards the leader.

At lap 13, Royalty was in heavy lapped traffic with Foster lurking while Richards came back to life and reclaimed second with five laps remainingFoster experienced a lost drive shaft to put the race under caution with Royalty leading Richards, Smith and Cody Brill on lap 18.

One more quick caution slowed the race before the conclusion as Royalty once again prevailed for another feature-race win. Richards was second with Smith originally third, Brill fourth and Kameron Grindstaff fifth. In post-race tech inspection, the car of Smith failed a wheel weight inspection and he was disqualified from the finish.

Street Stock Recap

Marc Carter and Jay Prevete lined up on row one of the night’s 15-lap main event. Through the opening trio of laps a clear-cut leader did not emerge as Prevete, Carter and Brett Wood ran strong inside the top three. Nathan Vaughn, Devin Irvin and Clayton Campbell also stayed close with Michael Mullins nearby as well.

Caution flew on lap four for debris on the speedway with Prevete leading the way over Wood, Vaughn and Carter. Vaughn was on the move by lap eight as he moved to second and then went after the lead by lap nine. Carter stayed third with Campbell now up to fourth and Wood fifth.

As the trio of leaders approached the white flag heavy lapped traffic came into play as the lapped cars held their line and the leaders raced cleanly to finish out the race.

On the final lap, the top three was anyone’s guess as Prevete held on to the lead, coming off turn four, Prevete prevailed by a small margin over a Nathan Vaughn who just edged out Carter in third. Campbell held on for fourth with Wood fifth and Mullins sixth.

A-Main Recap

For the final event of the night, Gunner Martin and Chad Lyle made up row one of the 25-lap A-Mod main event. Martin was the strong early leader over Lyle, Dean Wille, Tim Karrick and Terry Schultz. By lap nine, Martin had caught the tail of the field to begin putting drivers down a lap.

Two quick cautions slowed the field by lap ten as the racers looked for a groove. Martin continued to lead Lyle, Wille and Karrick but by lap 13 caution flew again. On the restart, Martin again took flight with Lyle second, Schultze third and Karrick now fourth. Lyle began to put pressure on the leader as Martin was low on entry floating to the top on his exit of turn four by lap 16.

Caution flew again on lap 19 as Martin again had to fend off Lyle and Karrick. By lap 22, Martin was about 10 car lengths in front of the race for second. Martin went on to score the victory in search of redemption from last week’s heartbreaking disqualification. Behind Martin were Lyle, Karrick, Schultz, Wille and Darron Fuqua.
