USMTS main event at Lubbock Speedway 5/6/16
Rodney Sanders took control at the waving of the green flag and led all 37 laps Friday night at the Lubbock Speedway to score his fourth United States Modified Touring Series victory of the season and 68th of his USMTS career. The win was worth $3.000 to the 26-year-old two-time USMTS national champion as he held off another two-time champ, Jason Hughes, who won the only other USMTS event in Lubbock on May 2, 2010.
Jesse Sobbing netted his fifth straight top-five finish with a third-place effort Friday while Dereck Ramirez finished fourth and Cade Dillard wound up fifth to snap his two-race win streak. Jeremy Gossett was sixth, Philip Houston secured the seventh spot, veteran Dee Gossett earned an eighth-place paycheck and Scott Drake held off his boss/teammate, Joe Duvall, for ninth.
