The Modifieds hit the track as the sun was beginning to set in ths sky and it was all about Jared Mogard.  Mogard started on pole and led all 40 laps to pick up the victory in one of the most entertaining races we’ve seen on dirt.

While there weren’t any lead changes the battle for the top spot saw things get three, four and at one time five cars stormed into turn 1 all door to door trying to take the win.  Following Mogard across the finish line was Brad Cross in second, Jeff Ward third, Tim Knott and Kris Titus rounded out the top five.
