WARRENSBURG - Sedalia’s Terry Schultz found victory lane in Saturday night’s USRA Modified race at Central Missouri Speedway. Fellow Sedalia native Steve Twenter took 13th in the race.
Schultz led early with Jim Moody and Brian Johnson filing in just behind. An early caution flag waived over the field for Dean Willie, who came to a halt on the front stretch but was able to continue on in the event.
Through the first 10 laps, Schultz remained out front over Moody in second and Tim Karrick in third. Karrick’s night nearly came to an end as he went over the turn embankment, ultimately re-starting at the tail of the field.
By lap 20, Moody regained the lead from Schultz. A late-race caution flew on lap twenty.
To close out the event, the field was stopped twice more by single-car spins and each time Schultz was able to hold his line and eventually crossed the line first over Moody, Aaron Marrant, Dalton Kirk, Karrick, who rebounded to claim fifth, and Brian Johnson inside the top six.
In victory lane, Schultz said, “We’ve had a lot of bad luck the last few weeks. I’m just glad things seem to be working right.”
It was Schultz’s third CMS win this year and 54th of his career at CMS and first USRA-sanctioned win since last winning at CMS on May 31. Schultz has seven USRA wins on the year at five separate tracks.
In the B-Modified feature, Sedalia’s’s Richard Brainard and Ernie Walker took eighth and 13th, respectively.
Sedalia’s Ron Livengood took 10th in the Street Stock feature race.
