This past Saturday night defending Track Champion Brett Kressley picked up his third win of the season in T.P. Trailer NASCAR Modified action in a thriller, tying him with Louden Reimert for the most wins this season.

Jeff Strunk just missed out on a top ten feature finish but continues to be the point leader, while Craig Von Dohren scored a solid fourth place feature run to remain second in the point standings ahead of Mike Gular, who like Strunk, just missed out on a top ten feature run but continues to hold down third in the championship standings.

Duane Howard had a great run this past Saturday night as he battled with Kressley for the entire second half of the feature race ending up second in the end, a good finish to maintain his fourth spot in the standings, while Jared Umbenhauer holds down fifth in points despite not scoring a top ten run.

The current top ten in points for the T.P. Trailer NASCAR Modifieds are 1. Jeff Strunk – 2311, 2. Craig Von Dohren – 2106, 3. Mike Gular – 1981, 4. Duane Howard – 1978, 5. Jared Umbenhauer – 1864, 6.

The T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman completed two features this past Saturday night with all-time win leader Brian Hirthler scoring the win in the June 29 make-up feature, and Zach Steffey scoring his first career win in the regularly scheduled main event.

Logan Watt scored one top ten (fifth) between the two features to continue as the T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman division point leader while Addison Meitzler also scored one top ten (third) between the two events to remain second in points.

Mike Schneck Jr. had a real solid night scoring two sixth-place finishes to move up to third in points, while Adrianna Delliponti scored one top ten (seventh) to hold down fourth in points, followed by Dylan Swinehart who had a fine second place effort behind Hirthler in the first feature but had problems and did not make the second main event.
