area, headlined by the Friendly Dodge Outlaw Modifieds running the ‘Gunslinger 50’, part of the Insinger
Performance/Sunoco Race Fuels series of events at the facility.
The 50-lap Friendly Dodge Outlaw Modified feature saw Alan Johnson and Steve Paine move to the front and battle for the
lead in the opening laps as Andy Bachetti was coming up from his 13th starting spot into the top five. As Johnson and Paine
separated fro the field, Derrick Posiadlo and Tyler Siri fought for the third spot. Bachetti and Kyle Coffey closed in on that
battle as the leaders started working through lapped traffic. Paine got by Johnson for the lead on a lap 35 restart and Bachetti
moved past Siri for third. Paine pulled away in the remaining laps to take the win over Johnson, Bachetti, Donnie Lawson,
and Tyler Siri, who crossed the line with a flat left rear tire.

which brought out the first yellow. Richard Michael Jr worked his way to second after the restart and passed leader Brad
Sites for the top spot on lap 11. Michael Jr held off Sites on some late race restarts to take the win, followed by Will Ward,
Ken Buck, and Brad Smith.

first two laps. Bard and Walker distanced themselves from the field as MIckey Ciliberto moved into third. Bard hit lapped
traffic at the halfway point but maintained his advantage until Ivan Forrey’s car came to a stop with five laps to go, setting up a
restart. Bard jetted away at the front of the field as Walker fell back on the restart and took the win over Eric Wise, Matt
Smith, Brandon Oddo, and Ciliberto.
