The Bad Boys from the I-Car All-Star Modified Tour put on an action packed show for the Turn 1 50 presented by Fire Bottle A-Feature.
The pole sitter, Doug Meyer, was the leader for almost the entire race and kept his lap times low and his tires cool until the last 10 laps. Steve Arnold had a very fast car and tried his best to get around Moff who was doing everything he could to keep Arnold at bay.
Fairly early in the race, Arnold made contact with Moff and Arnold Spun. He collected LB Skaggs and Shawn Amor as they tried to avoid the incident but just had nowhere to go.
A couple laps later, on the restart after this incident, the drivers were swapping spots and charging for positions when the 91 of David Carter and the 26 of Jeff Lane made contact in what looked like a racing incident. This sent Lane down to the inside wall causing heavy damage and retiring his car for the remainder of the event. Buddy Gray tried to go around but unfortunately ended up against the inside retaining wall as he had help from behind from Johnny Allen.
Exactly 20 laps later, David Carter, who was making a strong run through the field, went in to turn 3 and his machine went straight to the wall. Upon watching the replay it appeared as though Carter lost a brake pad on his RF. Which was the cause for his incident. Carter was trying to follow the fast qualifier of Kyle Purvis up through the field with his fast machine.
The remaining 20 laps of the would prove to be just as exciting as the 2 previous I-CAR All-Star Modified Tour Races. Purvis made his way through the field in spectacular fashion closing in on the spoiler of race leader Doug Meyer. After a brief caution, Meyer chose the outside leaving Purvis with the inside. They took off on the restart and coming out of turn 2, Meyer got loose and moved down into Purvis making contact. The 13 of Purvis kept his car heading in the right direction. Unfortunately for Doug Meyer, when they made contact his upper shock mount broke and Meyer took it pitside.
This paved the way for the fastest car all weekend to go on and win the 2nd Annual Short Track U.S. Nationals Turn1 50 presented by Fire Bottle. Purvis has finished in the top 5 in all 3 tour events and was excited to finally put it in Victory Lane after having a very dominate car all season and coming up just short in the 1st 2 events.
After an absolutely action packed show, “Bones” Damon Breedlove brought it home in second position with a good steady race. Bruce Bennett Jr put his car in the final spot on the podium with a very fast and consistent racecar. Doug Moff and Kyle Bookmiller round out your top 5. The initial pole sitter, Dave Wright Jr.,decided to start at the back of the field made his way up to the 6th position putting on a good show for the fans.
All in all, the 2018 I-CAR All-Star Modified Tour doesn't disappoint for the 3rd time in a row. All 3 shows the tour has ran have been non stop action packed, edge of your seat, show stopping features. See you at the track!
