8.23.14 USMTS Modifieds Results

PRYOR CREEK, Okla.—Jeremy Payne scored his first win of the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup Saturday night as the United States Modified Touring Series invaded the Salina Highbanks Speedway.

Payne, who started on the outside of the front row, took command at the drop of the green flag and kept points leader Rodney Sanders at bay for the duration of the caution-free 35-lapper.

The win, worth $3,000, was the 19 career USMTS victory for the 28-year-old from Springfield, Mo.

Meanwhile, Sanders netted his second runner-up finish in as many nights to extend his points lead in his quest to join Kelly Shryock and Ryan Gustin as back-to-back USMTS national champions.

Zack VanderBeek, however, is not letting Sanders get comfortable as ‘The Z-Man’ kept the title fight tight with a third-place finish Saturday night—his 12th top-10 finish in his last 12 starts.

Stormy Scott came from 14th to claim the fourth spot and earned the Mesilla Valley Transportation Hard Charger Award. Terry Phillips, who started next to Scott on the 24-car grid, was fifth.

Dereck Ramirez scored a sixth-place finish driving Bryan Rowland’s machine, Jason Krohn was seventh, Cade Dillard wound up eighth, Shryock nabbed ninth and John Allen rounded out the top-10.

The gear-grinding goliaths of the USMTS wrap up their weekend on Sunday, Aug. 24, at the Outlaw Motorsports Park in Oktaha, Okla., with gates swinging open at 4 p.m. and racing at 6.

Tickets are $15 at the gate, kids ages 8-12 and seniors are $7.50 and children ages 7 and under get in for free. Active duty military and veterans can also enjoy the show free of charge.

The Outlaw Motorsports Park is a 3/8-mile high-banked dirt oval located 7 miles south of Muskogee on Hwy 69 at the Wainwright exit; 11 miles north of I-40 on Hwy. 69. For more information call 918-687-7077 or visit www.outlawmotorsportspark.com online.
