L.B. Skaggs wins Open Wheel Modified Race

Fans were not disappointed with the full night of racing action at the Punta Gorda Speedway, they saw flips, spins, wrecks and tempers flared.

The first feature up was the Perfect Pest Control Pro 4 were Kris “ the Man” Bridges jumped into the lead on lap two.

While Paul Richards Jr worked his way through the field, trying to keep his winning streak alive, other drivers were trying to break that streak and take the win. Bridges had a fast car running as the leader, while Skyler Null was hooked up and chasing him down. Richards tried several times to past Null but could not, until lap thirteen when Richards gave himself a flat tire trying to pass Null. The field bunched back up for the restart and Bridges took off and Null went with him for that second spot and that is how it finished with Richards coming in third but would be D.Q.ed for unsportsman like conduct in the winners circle, giving third place to Ryan Collver.

T.Q. Midgets were up next and another flip over, coming out of turn four by the 7 of Jamie Barnum who was ok and walked it off down the front stretch to the pit area. The winner was young Chris Gimmler who made the pass on Mike Belusar with five to go who finished second and a hard charging Rob Kohler was third.

Becca Monopli continued her winning streak in the Legend class when she jumped out to the lead on lap two and never looked back. Mike Verhaagh was running a strong second till something broke and forced him to the pits and bringing out the only caution on lap sixteen. That turned the second spot over to Tony Steinbuck and third went to Joey Langis.

Dwarf cars had an exciting race that saw Andy Pryor of Bonita Springs dominate the entire feature while being chased closely by Darren Bass until Bass pulled into the pits with five to go. Ray Gonzales took over the second spot on the restart and hung on while Rob Kohler gave it his all and had to settle for third in this race also. Two great finishes for Kohler in two different classes.
