Jeremiah Shingledecker became the first three-time winner in the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modified division at Tri-City Raceway Park. Jeremiah was worried when he pulled the pills for the starting lineup for the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds. The track uses a modified re-draw system based on heat finishes. “I put the two fastest cars on the front row,” he said. And, to make matters worse, he lined up in eighth as the last feature winner in the class. But, his concerns went for naught.
J.R. McGinley started from the pole position in his first appearance of the season at Tri-City Raceway Park. McGinley took the early lead, but Jimmy Holden was nipping on his heels. Fink slid into third, with Schrader, Travis Shingledecker, and Steve Barr fighting for position. Soon, they were joined by Jeremiah Shingledecker.
A series of restarts enabled Jeremiah Shingledecker to climb through the ranks. As he was doing so, McGinley started to slide back through the field.
Jeremiah Shingledecker stalked Jimmy Holden for eight laps during one of the longer green flag sessions. Coming through turn four with fifteen laps completed, Shingledecker got his nose under Holden, who continued to use the high side through the race. Shingledecker powered off the corner with the lead. Holden fought back, but he was unable to overtake Shingledecker.
Over the final laps in the race, Shingledecker stretched his advantage. Holden was second, followed by Fink, Riggs, and McGinley. Kevin Hoffman crossed in sixth, followed by Travis Shingledecker, the winner’s brother, D.J. Schrader, Curt Bish, and Ryan Riffe.
In the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group heat races for the Krill Recycling LLC 358 Modifieds, the victories went to Jeremiah Shingledecker and Jimmy Holden. There was no B Main.
