By The Staff

The American Modified Series presented by Force Fuel and Engine Conditioner visited Bluegrass Speedway Saturday evening for the 10th Annual Mod Squad Bash.

Jason Wheatley of Loretto grabbed the $1,500 payday in the event with an exciting last lap pass for the win. Bryan Barber took second in the 30-lap caution-free main event.

In preliminary action, Barber claimed the SPEC Race Engines top qualifier award with a lap of 18.315 seconds.

Pat Hagan of New Haven scored the victory in the WBRT 1320-AM UMP Sportsman feature event. He had taken about a month off with engine troubles.

Avral Thompson was runner-up, followed by Barry Chesser, Robbie Settles and Billy Meredith. The class drew for their heat race starting spots and Settles would score the heat race victory.
