(Warrensburg, MO) After several weeks of heavy rain in Warrensburg and the Central Missouri (CMS) area, drivers and fans settled in for a near-perfect night for racing on Heartland Waste Race Night. Those in attendance savored a night of watching racing and cheering on their favorite drivers. All total, 108 race teams checked in to compete.

Dean Wille from Warrensburg dominated from the start of the USRA Modified feature for his first USRA Modified win of the season. In the USRA B-Mod feature event, Jake Richards from Lansing, Kansas fought hard for the win for his seventh CMS feature victory of the year. Aaron Poe from Warrensburg dominated the Street Stocks for his first CMS feature. In Midwest Mod-Lite feature, Dillon Raffurty from Kansas City won again for his fifth CMS win and Byron Glotzbach from Topeka, Kansas also celebrated in victory lane for his third feature win in the Pure Stocks.

The Pure Stocks began the night of heat racing action night with 14 drivers checked in for competition. Roger Detherage charged to the first heat win of the night. Byron Glotzbach took the second heat after a late race move past Jimmy Smith.

Glotzbach started on the poll of the main event and held strong at the front fending off Smith up front. Jason Ryun then started to move up through the pack and pressured Glotzbach. Detherage also made it interesting with his presence in the top three. In the end, Glotzbach hung on for this third feature win of 2017 as Ryun settled for a close second. Detherage was third as Tyler Schoen, Jimmy Smith rounded out the top five.

USRA B-Mod drivers competed against a stout field of 23 drivers registered for racing. During the three qualifying heat races, Jacob Ebert started seventh and drove hard as he grabbed the opening heat race win. Jake Richards charged to the second heat race checkers then in heat three, Jeremy Lile hung on and earned his first B-mod heat win of the season.

The feature commenced with Ebert in command with Richards stalking him in second. After several early race cautions, Richards finally worked around Ebert after he hit a utility tire in turn two. Richards never looked back as he maintained the lead and pulled away with his seventh feature win this year. Steve Clancy moved up late in the race into second as Ebert settled for third. Cody Brill had a solid run in fourth and with Michael Bixby with a good run in fifth.

The 18 Lucas Cattle Company ULMA late model drivers produced some solid heat racing action with Johnny Fennewald, Aaron Poe and former Modified Track Champion, Aaron Marrant grabbing the heat wins.
Marrant started on the outside of the front row of the main event and began his quest for the victory. After several feature restarts, Marrant settled into the lead smartly using the high-side of the track. Poe and Shad Badder battled for the second spot and tangled on lap 15 in turn four. Badder eventually had to stop his car on the back stretch and departed the track on the hook with motor problems. Fennewald took advantage of the situation and moved up into second at the time. Tommy Cordray who started sixth then made a late-race pass to grab third. As the checkers flew, Marrant gained his first CMS win this season. Fennewald held on for second with Cordray third. Poe slipped back to fourth and Layne Elhert moved up into fifth by race end.

The always fast Midwest Mod-Lites entertained race fans and showed their skills during three heat races on the high banked clay oval. Ed Griggs, David Raffurty and Dillon Raffurty flew the checkers for their respective heat wins.

In the feature event,18 Mod-lite drivers completed the first nine laps without any cautions after Griggs spun on the first lap of the feature, which placed him at the back of the field. Dillon Raffurty used the high-side of the track to dominate this race with Cody Miller hounding him for the distance. Meanwhile, Griggs used his skills to move back up into fifth by lap nine. Dillon Raffurty ultimately grabbed his fifth CMS feature win of the year. Miller hung on for second as Griggs moved up late in the race and finished third. Michael Raffurty started eighth and finished fourth with David Raffurty in fifth.

In the Street Stock division drivers once again set their sights on victory lane as 13 drivers zoned into tuning up their cars for heat wins. The first heat had Aaron Poe with the victory and Brett Wood stayed up front in heat two for his win. Poe started on the pole position and pulled away from the field several times as Wood and Michael Mullins battled for second. Poe never looked back and was excited with his first Street Stock feature win at CMS. Wood the current point’s leader, settled for second in front of Mullins in third. Jay Prevete who started eighth moved up steadily throughout the race and finished fourth with Brian Inlow in fifth from an eleventh-place starting spot.

This week during the USRA “Mighty” Modified heat races, fans saw some electrifying race action as 22 drivers attempted to set their starting positions for the 25-lap feature. The young Kansas driver, Dalton Kirk grabbed the first heat and then the veteran driver, Tim Karrick took heat two. Heat three went to Gunner Martin who charged into the lead early on for the win.

Dean Wille started with Karrick on the front row and swapped the lead in the first few laps of the feature. Wille then took command as Karrick, Martin, Kerry Davis, Dwight Niehoff and Jim Moody battled in the top six. Niehoff had a mechanical problem and pulled into the infield as his night was over. After several mid-race cautions Wille held off the competition with Martin hot on his tail as he explored for a way to get around Wille. Johnny Bone, Jr., entered the top three late in the race and eventually worked a low-side pass in turn two to claim second. Wille had his sight set on the finish as Bone did edge underneath Wille on the final lap, nearly taking the win. However, on this night it was Wille who hung on as the sparks flew along with the checkers to grab his first USRA Modified win of the year. Bone settled for second with Martin third, Davis fourth and Dalton Kirk up into fifth.
