Jeremiah Rockets To Tour Win at Tri-City!

Then it was time for the 24 ground pounders of the BRP Modified Tour to take to the track for their 35 lap $2,000 to win feature event. On the front row would be the “Reno Rocket” Les Myers, and New York Invader Brian Weaver with Weaver leading the first lap. His lead would be short lived as by lap 3 Jeremiah Shingledecker would take the lead and then Weaver would wrestle it back. The field was slowed for the first time by the spinning Don Brown. On the restart it was Brad Rapp on the move from his 8th starting spot to third by lap 5. Weaver and Shingledecker would trade the lead again dicing back and forth for the entire first half of the race. At the midpoint of the race the leaders started to move into very heavy lapped traffic, which were racing for position side by side. The leaders would have to time their moves just perfect but Shingledecker could not wait any more by threading the needle in turn 3 and breaking out on top. The last caution would come out on lap 20 for the slowing Mark Flick. On the restart Shingledecker would break out to a commanding lead but the battle behind him was hot and heavy. Dave Murdick would make his presence known by passing Brian Swartzlander for third and then Weaver off turn 4 on the bottom for second. At the Finish it was Shingledecker taking the win by 3.39 seconds over Murdick, Weaver, Swartzlander and Rapp. Winning the heats were Rex King Sr. Kevin Bolland and Mark Flick. In Victory Lane Shingledecker said “This was great to come home and get a win at your track. I have to thank the new Tri-City management team for bring us back for these big paying events I love it here.”
