Wesley Smith paced the early laps with a comfortable 1.5-second lead by lap four with Quinton Benson and Jacks Wagner inside the top three. By lap ten, Smith led Benson, Wagner, Wyatt Burks, and Kory Schudy inside the top five. At lap 15, Smith led by 2.5 seconds over Benson. As Smith continued his torrid pace, his lead built to nearly 3 seconds by lap 20. Yellow flew at lap 20 for a single-car incident as Smith led Benson and Burks.

A three-car battled settled the race as Benson fought hard to win over Schudy and Benson but on the final lap, the top three completely changed as Schudy powered his way off turn four to take the checkers over Benson, Smith, fourteenth-starting Tom Curran, and thirteenth-starting Xavier Doney.

Dustin Hodges and multiple-time feature winner Dustin Hodges began the night’s final race, the 25-lap A-Mod feature from row one. Martin has been strong of late, but Hodges was quick to jump out to the lead with Martin close behind. Early in the race, Marin’s left-front tire went flat, but per the CMS general race rules, he was able to maintain a safe speed and control of the car and continued racing. At lap 11, the caution flew as Hodges led Martin, Dennis Elliott, Kameron Grindstaff, and Dalton Kirk. Soon after another caution bunched the field in much the same order, except for Martin who slipped to fifth by lap 15 as Elliott moved to second and Grindstaff to third. By lap 21, Hodges’ lead extended to 2.8-seconds over a tight battle between Elliott and Grindstaff and grew to just over three seconds by the white-flag lap. Hodges took the victory over a fierce, clean, and tight battle with Elliott in second, Grindstaff for his best finish in third, Martin rebounded to fourth at the line with Dalton Kirk finishing a solid fifth.

Nick Gibson and Aaron Poe, who were both eligible for bonus money put up by Old 71 Speedway Promoter Jerry Brown, and CMS Promoter Earl Walls, began the night’s 15-lap main event from the front row. Poe quickly jumped out to an early race lead until caution slowed the field at lap four. When the action resumed Poe led Gibson and Cody Frazon in a close battle for second. At the lap 11 mark, Poe built his lead to nearly once second with Frazon trying to reel him in. The race was clean and green to the finish as Poe pulled way handily to collect his fifteenth-career CMS victory. Frazon finished second with Gibson third, Blaine Ewing with his best finish was fourth as Devin Irvin rounded out the top five. For his combined finishes of second at Old 71 Speedway and first at CMS, Poe collected a $100 bonus from each of the track bonus to add $200 to his winnings for the night. CMS wishes to thank Jerry Butler at Old 71 Speedway for putting up the extra money for the POWRi Super Stock drivers.

Brad Smith and Jacob Ebert brought the field to green to start with Ebert darting to the front. By lap four, Ebert had built a 1.75-second lead over Cody Brill. With Ebert comfortably out front, Brill, Smith, Jeremy Lile, and Terry Schultz raced hard for the second spot. Schultz moved to fourth by lap eight in a tight battle with Smith as Ebert then built his lead to 2.4 seconds at the halfway mark. The lone yellow flag of the race flew at lap 11 giving the drivers time to settle in with Ebert leading Brill and Schultz, who fought hard for the runner-up spot all the way to the finish. On this night, Ebert was too tough to tame and claimed his 50th CMS career victory! Schultz fought back to finish second just ahead of Brill with his best CMS run of the year in third. Lile was fourth followed by Brad Smith in fifth.

Several early race cautions slowed the field during the first five laps, including two false starts. Pole-sitter Jimmie Workman paced the field early with Jonathan Evans close behind. After laps seven, the field was able to continue for a stretch of green-flag racing until late in the race when a caution flag setup a two-lap dash to the finish. Workman was strong on every restart and continued showing the way as Davide Doelz, Austin Story, and Evans fighting for second. Workman ultimately collected his first win with Doelz recording his best CMS run in second until a trailing arm infraction in pos-race tech disqualified him from the finishing order. Story advanced to second followed by Evans, Cameron Kelly, and Brian Cox.

Up next, Saturday, June 26 is Midwest Coating Race Night featuring A-Mods, Super Stocks, B-Mods, and Pure Stocks competing in a full night of action including preliminary heat races and main events.
