    Springfield,Mo.-Under perfect weather conditions and a packed crowd,the running of the 5th annual Bordertown Casino Octoberfast at SpringfieldRaceway provided outstanding side by side racing action as Veteran Scott Drake hit the jackpot in capturing an action packed A-Mod feature while area law enforcement competed to benefit the One Missing Link Organazation for Ozarks Missing Kids in an outstanding 20 lap event.

    The A-Mod feature found Jim Body and Jody Tillman set the pace for the 25 lap feature after the Casino redraw.Tillman grabbed the opening lead as Body,2010 track champion Mitch Keeter,jamie Ragland and Jason Pursley following.Action was side by side throughout the star-studded field.On lap 2,Ketter shot to the low side taking the lead from Tillman.The yellow waved bunching the field even tighter as Ragland's car was sending sparks into the air.On the restart,Keeter grabbed control again as Tillman and Body were side by side.On lap 6,Body went around Tillman for second as Scotty Drake had worked his way from 10th starting spot to take a top 5 run.Yellow waved on lap 8 as Ragland's car went sideways in turn 4 as his night was over.On the restart Tillman went back around Body for second as Keeter was glued to the bottom of the track as Drake,former champion Jackie Dalton and Body were all side by side.Tillma stayed on the top groove and took over the lead from Keeter as Bobby Pearish and Jason Pursley were coming fast.On lap 13,Drake went around Keeter for second and set his sights on the high flying Tillman as Keeter,Dalton,Body,Pursley were wheel to wheel.On lap 16,Jason Pursley's strong run ended with rearend problems as the field bunched-up again.A false start saw Body fall of the pace as Danny DeMasters II got into him causing a delay as the cars were hooked together.On the fial restart on lap 18,Drake was keeping down low in the corners and drifting out of the corners as Tillman was still in front.This side by side battle kept the capacity crowd up for the last few laps as Tillman was still in charge while Keeter,Dalton and Pearish were coming fast.On lap 21,Drake took the lead only to see Tillman take back the lead as the two went wheel to wheel for the final laps.Drake took back the lead on lap 22 as Tillman was faster going into the corners.On the final lap,Drake kept smooth down low as Tillman made a last lap run for the win.Drake kept the car smooth and deafeated Tillman by 2 car lengths to grab the 1111 victory as Tillman,Keeter,Dalton and Pearish completed the top 5 as Donnie Fellers,Brian Green,Eric Lampe,Rustin Miller and Erik Maggard completed the top 10.Drake then took the Bordertown Casino double or nothing challange to double or lose his race winnings as won 2222 for the feature win.

    The SportMod feature went 20 laps solid with no cautions as Lampe's Eric Tinderholt took the opening lead from Midway track champion Michael Stake and was in his own world leaving the field behind.Tinderholt's big lead started to get smaller in the closing laps as working lapped traffic,Stake started to close up the gap as the field was side by side all evening long.Once Tinderholt cleared the traffic,the Victory was all his as Stake,Shawn Strong,Jon Yeoman Jr and 13th place starter JC Morton completed the top 5.The second five included Bobby Maggard Jr,Larry Tindle,Gary Rodocker,Jay Lamons Jr and Brad Moad completed the top 10.

    The StrretStock feature saw plenty of wild action all night long as veteran Mark Simon and Rusty Forrest brought the field to the green.Simon took the early control with Forrest,Robert High and Chuck Becker were following.A hard crash in turn 4 ended the night early for track champion Jack Hamer, and Bill Schoen.on the restart,Simon found High right beside him as Becker stayed close.The big mover was veteran Bob Maggard Sr.After starting 14th tonight,Maggard used his experience and knowledge to work into contention along with Midway champion Joe Francis.Francis who started 21 quietly worked forward using the cautions to his advantage.Following a late race caution,Becker put himself into a chance to win the feature for the final 3 lap shootout.Simon kept the middle groove strong as Becker tried low several times while Maggard made a late race move around High to move into third place.Simon withstood the Becker challanges to grab the win with Becker,Maggard Sr, High and Francis the top 5 as Jim Reid,Marcus Chainey,JR aitken,Rex Freize and Josh Lewis completed the top 10.

    The Legends tuned-up for the Big National event coming next week to SpringfieldRaceway with yet another outstanding feature with 3 wide racing.Rob Watson grabbed the early control over Park Jones to take the opening lead.Dave Comer wasted no time in moving into second place and moved quickly on Watson.On lap 4,Comer shot to the infield with problems ending his chance for the win.Watson then found 2009 track champion Jason Rayle to his outside as 2010 champ Justin Comer,Jones and Billy Cottrill following.The long green run saw side by side action as is the normal for Legends At Springfield.Watson was withstanding the challanges by Rayle as Jones moved around Rayle on lap 13.Side by side up front were Watson,Jones,Rayle and Justin Comer.On lap 16,Jones went around Watson on the top side as Rayle followed.Watson returned the favor on lap 18 and took back the lead.Hading on the final lap,Jones and Watson went wheel to wheel as Jones made the top groove stick and barley grabbed the victory as Watson,Justin comer,Rayle and a fast moving Dave Bauer completed the top 5 with Coly Pruente,Newcomer Don Reynolds,Rodney Baird,Rick Nichols and Billy Cottrill completing the top 10.Jones gambled his chance at the double or nothing Casino Challange and picked the correct card to earn twice his winnings.

    In a wild Purestock feature,a last lap pass by Clayton Powell over Kory Barker earned him the victory but in the after rsce tech,Added weight in the rear cost him the victory giving Barker the win as veteran Randy Belk,Tim Jones,Charles Woodruff and Josh Pinkley completed the top 5 with Tracy Manning,Joey Blackston,Brian Warner,Mike Carpenter andRonnie wilson completing the top 10.Great side by side action for the Purestocks as 21 cars took the opening green flag.

    A Special attraction was the Law Enforcement Race.12 teams entered for the surrounding area along with as far away as St Louis,Jefferson City,the Columbia area all to help raise money for One Missing Link which helps in the aid of lost children.
    THe Officers showed true to form with only 1 caution in their 20 lap feature event.Lincoln county Sherrif Brian Ward grabbed the opening lead from his 6th starting spot as Springfield Sargents drivers Greg Wheeling followed.On lap 2,Springfield Police Officers rep Ben Haines moved into second and applied pressure to Ward.On lap 5,Haines took the lead only to loop the car giving the lead back to Ward.St Louis county Police rep Dave"The Rocket" Ryan started his move forward after starting 7th.THe leaders were really attacking the Quick-Quarter as side by side action was in sotre while Mo State Water Patrol Rep Jason Worthley moved behind the leaders.Ryan went wheel to wheel with Ward,but found the high-banked oval turn 3 banking as he went off the end and drove back on in turn 4.Caution waved as Ryan went off the end hard,but when driving back on found the crowd giving their approval.On the restart,Christian county Sherriff Joey Kile who started the night in 11th had moved into second place.Ward kept the car in the middle groove as Kyle slid upstairs.On the final lap,Kyle made the winning pass to grab the victory and keep the newly made traveling trophy in the Ozarks.Ward,Jefferson County Sherrif Terry McDowell,Worthly, and Green County Sherriff Dept rep Jim Arnott completed the top 5 as all 12 cars were running at the end of the race with 7 on the lead lap.
