Sanders dominates USRA Modifieds at Lawton

Rodney Sanders dominated the American Racer USRA Modified Series visit to Lawton Speedway on Saturday night aboard his Wichita Tank Racing / Paulson Rock Products / Stussy Construction No. 20 Texas Locomotive Solutions / Kenny’s Tile / ARMI Contractors / MB Customs Race Car / Hatfield Racing Engine Modified.

The triumph marked his second of the 2023 campaign.

“We had a good car all night,” sanders said. “We changed a few little things from last night and it seemed to really respond. (The track) was a little bottom dominant, and I thought I could roll Kenny (Gaddis) on the outside, but then he kind of moved up a little bit and gave me some room on the bottom.”

Rodney Sanders made the trip to Lawton Speedway (Lawton, Oklahoma) on Saturday night and left $2,000 richer after taking the checkered flag in the American Racer USRA Modified Series main event.

Sanders’ familiar No. 20 was among 24 entrants at the ¼-mile semi-banked red clay oval, where the Happy, Texas, drive swept the evening. Sanders first topped his eight-lap heat race from the fourth spot, and after the redraw, also started the A-Main from the fourth position.

He passed early leader Kenny Gaddis with six laps complete and never looked back, cruising to the win in the 30-lapper by a whopping 7.75 seconds.

Kenny Gaddis, Kale Westover, Manuel Williams II, and Cole Dennis completed the Top-5 finishers.

One night earlier on Friday, Sanders was also one of 28 entries for the USRA Modified Series contest at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Oklahoma.

Sanders started fourth and finished third in his eight-lap heat race on the 1/4-mile clay oval, putting him eighth on the grid for the 35-lap feature. He passed half a dozen cars during the race to score a runner-up finish.

Full results from both events are available at www.USRARacing.com.

Sanders now turns his attention to the inaugural Ed Gressel Memorial, which will be held this Thursday – Saturday at 81 Speedway (Wichita, Kan.). The Summit United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) weekend includes a $3,000-to-win program on Thursday, a $5,000-to-win event on Friday, and a $10,000-to-win finale on Saturday.
