ABERDEEN, S.D.-Stormy Scott made it two straight with a wire-to-wire win Wednesday night during the 2nd Annual Bullet SportsWear Modified Showdown at the Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D.
Scott, who won the second race of the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental last Friday at the Humboldt Speedway, continued his strong showing in his new VanderBuilt Race Cars chassis after debuting it last Thursday in the Hunt opener.
The 27-year-old from Las Cruces, N.M., nabbed the Sybesma Graphics Pole Award and fended off challenges from Cade Dillard for most of the 40-lapper, but a flat tire with four laps remaining brought out the race’s third and final caution and sent Dillard to the rear of the field.
Travis Saurer inherited the second spot but was unable to mount a serious challenge to Scott and settled for the runner-up finish ahead of defending USMTS national champion Jason Hughes, Ricky Thornton Jr. and Dereck Ramirez.
Cory Crapser, Zack VanderBeek, 15th-starting R.C. Whitwell, Adam Kates and Jake Timm rounded out the top 10 finishers.
Dillard could only recover for a 16th-place finish.
It was the 42nd career USMTS victory for Scott, tying him on the all-time wins list with VanderBeek. VanderBeek was the 2004 USMTS Rookie of the Year while Scott earned the same honors in 2012.
The series heads to the Red Cedar Speedway in Menomonie, Wis., on Thursday with USRA Limited Late Models and Midwest Mods also racing. The pit gate opens at 4 p.m., grandstands open at 5, hot laps begin at 7 and the green flag waves at 7:30. Spectator admission is $20, youth ages 11 to 15 are $10 and children ages 10 and under get in for free. Pit passes are $35.
