In the night’s regularly scheduled Governor Insurance DIRTcar Modified event, Rex King led wire-to-wire for his third victory of the season tying Kevin Bolland for tops in the division. King’s win wasn’t easy as he had to run his son’s #165 after engine woes in the make-up feature, then had to hold off a hard charge by Jeremiah Shingledecker. King’s $1,200 win was the 42nd of his career and came in the KMB, Inc.-owned, Jim Brown Seed Sales/Arrowhead Transport/Cintas/Schaeffer Oil/Reece Services/Mahan Welding & Fab/Bristol Disposal-sponsored #165.
Shingledecker started fourth and passed Rob Curtis for third on lap three. Following a caution with five laps completed for a tangle involving Carl Murdick, Don Brown, and newcomer Max Smoker, Shingledecker passed Kevin Hoffman for second. Shingledecker would get two restarts, but wasn’t able to get around King as he came up 0.584 seconds short. Shingledecker though not only earned $800 for runner-up for the second straight night, but pocketed the $1,000 two-night bonus and four pit passes to the World Finals!
