LIMA — A cool spring evening made for a super-fast track on Friday night at Limaland Motorsports Park for the 18th Annual Running of Modified Mayhem.

No. 53 Bobby Stremme joined his brother David as 2018 K&N Filters UMP Modified feature winners by grabbing the $1,000 to win, 20-lap A Main victory.

No. 59 Tracy Fritter picked up the STARS Modified Lites feature and No. 463 Daniel Sanchez made it 3 for 3 in Bud Thunderstock action.

Kicking off racing action were the K&N Filters UMP Modifieds. No. 16 Jeff Koz and Stremme brought the field to green with chaos breaking out as the field exited turn 2. 7 cars would pile up, blocking the track and necessitating a red flag to clear the wreckage. On the restart, Stremme powered to the front with Koz in tow and last week’s feature winner, No. 3W Dylan Woodling close behind. Caution waved again for No. 21JR Tom Conrad Jr. spinning at the end of the backstretch. As the race resumed, Woodling made his way past Koz for 2nd and set his sights on Stremme. Stremme and Woodling traded the lead on lap 13 before Stremme pulled ahead for good. Woodling was 2nd over Koz, No. 45p Brian Post and No 71 Will Norris.

Next up were the STARS Modified Lites. The mini mods started their feature with No. 99T Tyler Riggs and No. 98 Matt Ward on the front row. Riggs wasted no time grabbing the lead and tried to set sail on the field but a yellow flag on lap 3 allowed the field to close back in and No. 59 Tracy Fritter charged to the front. Riggs stayed close and peek to the inside of Fritter multiple times before nearly spinning on lap 10, allowing Fritter to get away by nearly a full straightaway. On lap 12, No. 55 Marty Lunsford got upside down exiting turn 2, flipping end over end and bringing out the red flag. Lunsford walk away under his own power. Oned the restart Riggs made one final run at Fritter but Fritter held on to pick up the victory over Riggs, Matt Ward, No. 15 Chris Robinson and No. 20 Vivian Jones.

Completing the night’s action were the Budweiser Thunderstocks in their 15-lap feature event. No. 87 Andy Welch and No. 463X Jordan Conover paced the field to the green flag with Conover grabbing the early lead with teammate Daniel Sanchez close behind in the No. 463. No. 82 Chris Douglas made his way past Welch to grab 3rd on lap 2, before a big pileup in turn 4 stopped the action with defending track champion No. 26 Justin Long spinning and collecting No. 7 Dan Wooten, No. 89 Keith Shockency and No. 99 Andy King. On the restart, Sanchez and Douglas battled for 2nd as Conover appeared to be setting sail but Conover’s ride started overheating, forcing him to take his car to the infield, and handing the lead to Sanchez. Douglas hounded Sanchez the final 8 laps but came up just short, finishing 2nd, with No. 22T Tony Anderson finishing a close 3rd. No. 27 Frank Paladino was 4th and UNOH Racer Scott Fritz completed the top five in the No. 00.

Limaland roars back to life next Friday night as Post Printing presents the Busch Clash and Meet the Drivers night, featuring NASCAR legend Ken Schrader.
