8.24.14 USMTS Modifieds Results

OKTAHA, Okla.—Stormy Scott saw his huge lead evaporate when the yellow flag waved with four laps to go Sunday night at the Outlaw Motorsports Park, but the 24-year-old from Las Cruces, N.M., never flinched and held on for his second win during the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup.

Scott started on the pole and drove away from the field, leaving his pursuers to fight it out for second place. The race’s only caution on lap 31 gave Rodney Sanders the opportunity he needed, but was never able to execute as he settled for runner-up behind Scott.

The win was his 13th of the 2014 campaign and 31st of his career. The winning paycheck was worth $3,000 to the 2012 USMTS Rookie of the Year.

Sanders held on for his third second-place finish of the weekend, and kept his title hopes high heading into five of the last six rounds of ‘Hunt’ races next week.

Dereck Ramirez, driving Bryan Rowland’s No. 20r machine, notched a third-place finish while Johnny Bone Jr. and Jeremy Payne finished fourth and fifth, respectively. Payne, who started 16th, earned his first Mesilla Valley Transportation Hard Charger Award of the year for his efforts.

Zack VanderBeek continued his string of top-10 finishes with a sixth-place results, with 17th-starting Terry Phillips, Cade Dillard, Kelly Shryock and Joe Duvall rounding out the top 10 finishers.

Sanders expanded his lead over VanderBeek in the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup to 139 points (1320 to 1181), while Stormy Scott maintained his third-place ranking with 1094 markers. The rest of the top 10 are Shryock (987), Johnny Scott (974), Ramirez (968), Duvall (916), Daniel Hilsabeck (877) and John Allen (788).

For the first time since February, a new leader emerged in the 2014 USMTS Rookie of the Year points battle. With his eighth-place finish, Dillard passed Jake Gallardo in the standings with six more races left to determine the rookie title.

Five big events are on tap for the Labor Day Weekend, beginning this Wednesday, Aug. 27, at the Marshalltown Speedway in Marshalltown, Iowa. From there, the series travels to the Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, Iowa, on Thursday. Friday finds the mud-slinging monsters back at the Chateau Raceway in Lansing, Minn., before heading to the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., on Saturday. The pentathlon of power wraps up at the Cresco Speedway in Cresco, Iowa, on Sunday, Aug. 31.
