PARK CITY, Kans. — With a stout field of 54 cars in attendance Saturday night at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas, Rodney Sanders dueled early with Tyler Wolff, but pulled away to a convincing win. The VP Racing Fuels checkers are his first with the Heartland Modified Tour Presented by Real Racing Wheels.

“This car was just awesome tonight,” said Sanders in Victory Lane. “I knew we were pretty good when we could go to the bottom and keep up with the cushion. I gotta thank the fans for coming out tonight, there's a lot of people here. That's pretty awesome to have a show like this. This is a tough deal, there was a lot of good cars here tonight and a lot of cars total.”

Behind Sanders there was plenty of good racing. Tyler Davis stormed towards the front from 10th to finish as the evening's runner up. He dealt with third place finisher Jacob Hobscheidt for a large portion of the feature.

Terry Phillips and Chad Wheeler were neck and neck for fourth and fifth and they finished in those positions.

The Midwest Sheet Metal caution flew once, for Tanner Mullens, who hit the wall in turn four.

Saturday's race honored the late Dalice Franz. His son, Brian Franz paced the field in a familiar #86 Modified. The family also made a $3,000 contribution to the overall series event purse as well.

Newton, Kansas residents were also admitted free of charge courtesy of Hodges Farms and Dredging.

Joe Duvall's Funkadelic Dirt Track and Honky Tonk Extravaganza takes center stage next weekend, with a pair of barn burner events on the docket. Friday the show rolls into Arrowhead Speedway in Colcord, Oklahoma. Saturday it shifts just down the road to Salina Highbanks Speedway in Salina, Oklahoma. Both shows will be run in conjunction with the American Racer Modified Series Presented by Day Motorsports.

Both events will be carried live on RacinDirt for those unable to make it to either track this weekend.
