For Immediate Release
(Warrensburg, Missouri) Eighty race teams signed in for competition on Rick Beebe Heating and Air Conditioning night at the races at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) on Saturday. Five divisions took to the track with 12 A-Mods, 22 POWRi Super Stocks, 16 B-Mods, 19 Pure Stocks, and 11 guest class POWRi Lightning Sprints. The fans witnessed 16 events during the race program, which was run under a rain schedule to beat the incoming predicted wet weather.
By the end of the night, long distance driver Dennis Elliott, of Mt. Ayr, Iowa, secured his first-ever CMS win during the A-Mod main with Cody Frazon capturing victory in Super Stock action. Chase Fischer took the Lightning Sprint victory with Jacob Ebert victorious once again in B-Mods. Spencer Reiff captured the Pure Stock win.

After an early caution period, the racing was fast and furious with Elliott leading Fuqua, Blackburn, and Grindstaff. Matt Johnson began his move forward by lap 12 taking over third from Fuqua with Austin Siebert also coming forward. Johnson pressured for Blackburn for many laps while Elliott continued his steady pass leading the way. Siebert and Fuqua battled for fourth to the late stages of the race. By lap 23, Johnson moved into second behind Elliott, but the Iowa driver kept his ride out front and claimed his first-ever CMS A-Mod feature. Johnson settled for second with Blackburn, Fuqua, and Siebert inside the top five.

Aaron Poe and Cody Frazon earned row one starting spots for the 20-lap Super Stock main with Frazon grabbing the early lead. Several cautions flew by lap five with Frazon staying clean out-front leading Poe, Wood, Prevete and Kircher. At the halfway mark, Wood began to pressure Poe for the runner-up spot, while Marc Carter was on the move, up from his 16th starting position to the top five. In the late stages of the race Frazon maintained his lead but behind him things were shaken up when Poe’s car experienced mechanical woes as he fell from contention. After one last caution, the race was a two-lap sprint to the finish as Frazon went on to claim the victory over a hard-charging Marc Carter who closed right up on the leader in his incredible run to second. Ted Welschmeyer has been a model of consistency so far and finished third, just in front of Kircher and Brett Wood.
