WARRENSUBRG, Mo. (CMS Press Release)- Seventy-four drivers made their way to Central Missouri Speedway on Saturday evening for Heartland Waste night at the races. A total of 19 USRA Modifieds, 19 Street Stocks, 19 USRA B-Mods, 9 Pure Stocks, and 8 Allstar Midget Series cars were on hand for a smokin’ hot summer night of racing.

The Pure Stocks began the evening with a pair of heat races as the drivers raced hard to earn the most passing points for the night to claim a spot near the front of the starting grid. Amanda Akers claimed her first-ever heat race win in the first Pure Stock heat race, she was followed by Jimmy Smith and Dallas Heuser. For the second Pure Stock heat it was a close one with Robert Gard also becoming a first-time winner over Rodger Detherage and Derek Williams.

B-Mods were next to hit the track with a trio of heat races as Cody Brill raced from the outside of row two to claim the opening heat ahead of Doug Wetzel and Bobby Russell. Jacob Ebert bested Blake Pierce and Bill Small in heat two while Troy Carlyle rocketed from fifth on the grid to claim the final heat over Chris Brockway and Russ Niehoff.

As the night progressed, a welcomed cloud bank rolled in and settled the temps back to make for a comfortable night of racing. Next up, the Allstar Midget Series raced in two preliminary events to setup their main-event starting grid. Wesley Smith of Nixa, Missouri crossed the finish line first over Mike Epperson and Luke McGee. For heat two, veteran pilot out of Iola, Kansas Merril Lamb took the checkers ahead of Dustin Gilbert and Robert Bell.

USRA Modifieds took to the track next for their three heat races with point’s leader Kevin Blackburn of Fulton, Missouri claiming his seventh heat win of the year over Lucas Conley and Dean Wille. Nathan Vaughn raced his way to his first heat race win of the year ahead of a returning to action Kyle Westerhold and Dean Bachner. Gunner Martin picked up where he left off the week before and cruised to his seventh heat-race win of the year ahead of Lewis Jackson and Robbie Test at the line.

Last up in preliminary action was the Street Stock class competing in their annual track special event for $1,500 to win. Drivers competed in three heat races to finish off the nights first half of the program.

Next week is KMZU 100.7 FM Night at the races featuring weekly racing and the return of the Mod-Lites as they begin a two-week stint at CMS. Pit gates open at 4:30 with admission gates opening at 5.
