The Scott’s Custom Colors UMP Modifieds were in action for the second time this season at the Terre Haute Action Track in Indiana, as part of the Tony Hulman Classic. While Robert Ballou claimed the rifle for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car victory, another rifle was up for grabs in the Modifieds.
When the green dropped on the field, Fenton, MO driver and NASCAR personality Ken Schrader took the lead. Schrader, typically very fast at THAT, jumped to the early lead from his front row starting spot. Behind him, Brian Shaw was moving forward to start a challenge. Shaw, who started fourth, took over the lead from Schrader with just three laps complete.
While Shaw was building up a lead, AJ Fike was recovering from a first lap drop. After starting up front, Fike fell back into fourth, moved back into third, and started to challenge Schrader over the final laps.
At the checkered, it was Robinson, IL driver Brian Shaw taking the victory and rifle. Schrader fended off the advances of Fike, while Bradley Sterrett and Zach Fair completed the top five. The rest of the top ten were Josh McDaniel, Tyler Loughmiller, Kenny Carmichael, Rick Weitekamp, and Brent Hudson.
Next up for the Scott’s Custom Colors UMP Modifieds will be the Summit Modified Nationals on Sunday, June 19 at the Terre Haute Action Track. That day, competitors will be racing for a $1,000 top prize in addition to important points for the start of the Summit Nationals Modified summer blitz. Also racing that day will be the Indiana Late Model Series, a new addition to the Action Track schedule.
Pit gates on June 19 will open at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps start at 6:00, and racing will take the green at 7:00.
