Craig Von Dohren continues to lead the T.P. Trailer Modified point standings after a fifth place finish last Saturday night, but his point lead shrunk after second place point man Brett Kressley scored a third place effort to cut into Von Dohren’s lead.
Jeff Strunk stormed from a 20th place starting spot to finish the feature in fourth and continues to sit third in points, while Doug Manmiller picked up a sixth place feature run to maintain fourth in the standings, while Jared Umbenhauer was in contention to win last Saturday night, finishing in second place to winner Mike Gular to remain in the fifth spot in points.
The current top ten in points for the T.P. Trailer NASCAR Modifieds are 1. Craig Von Dohren – 3332, 2. Brett Kressley - 3290, 3. Jeff Strunk – 3083, 4. Doug Manmiller – 2772, 5.

The T. P. Truck Equipment Sportsman had a wild affair last Saturday with a three, then two car battle to decide the winner, just like the Modified main event. In the end, point leader Logan Watt added to his lead, picking up his second win of the season after a spirited battle with Joey Vaccaro, who was looking for his first win. Watt became the first driver to win for the second time after ten straight different winners in the division.
Brian Hirthler scored a sixth place effort to remain second in points, while Kyle Smith was the third driver in contention to win, until he had a rear wheel break while challenging for the lead, causing him to flip, ending his night. Smith remains third in points with Cody Manmiller picking up a late race fifth place to move into fourth place in the standings ahead of fifth place Brett Gilmore, who ended the night with a ninth place feature run.
