May 16 (Saturday)
Sometimes it pays to be lucky rather than good. Ryan Gustin, No. 19r, is plenty good, but in the 40-lap Modified feature, at Texas Motor Speedway's Dirt Track PORTACOOL Texas World Dirt Track Championship finales, Ryan seemed to be in control, until "Lil Freaky" Clyde Dunn Jr., No. 88xxx, powered passed him to take the lead. As luck would have it, with seven laps to go, Clyde lost a tire opening the door for Ryan to take back the lead and the win. Having a strong run for second, was Triston Dycus, No. 14t. Chase Allen, No. 930, was third, John Whittington, No. 5w, was fourth and Randy Timms, No. 5t, was fifth. Watson, Henigan, Babbitt, Whiteaker Jr., and Gregory, round out the top ten. Twenty-four cars started the feature.
