The Joe Berry Clash of the B-Mods event took center stage on Friday night at Lakeside Speedway for Racing on the River’s Edge with 27 B-Mod teams signed in for competition. A $1,500-to-win payday awaited the winner of the night’s featured USRA B-Mod event, which saw Andy Bryant prevail to capture the headlines for the weekend. All total, 95 drivers took part in the night’s action.

Preliminary events recap: David Nickel and Marshall Jewett were heat-race winners among the 12 Factory Stock competitors on hand while 13 E-Mods signed in for the evening with Ben Stockton and defending champion Billy Spilman claiming the prelim wins. Mod-Lites were 16 strong with a pair of heat races as David and Dillon Raffurty drove to heat wins. USRA Stock Car drivers also contested a pair of heat races for the 13 drivers present as Brett Heeter and Kevin Anderson collected wins. Two heat races were held for the 14 USRA Modifieds on hand with Darron Fuqua and Mark Schafman claiming victories. In the featured class of the night, 27 B-Mods raced their way onto the Joe Berry Clash of the B-Mods starting grid with Brad Smith, Andy Bryant, Don Marrs, and Tim Powell finding their way to the checkers for heat-race victories.

Main events recap: Wayne Brooke and Logan Boone occupied the front row of the Factory Stock A-main but as he’s done all-season long, Marshall Jewett quickly found his way to the front and never relinquished the top spot to collect his seventh main-event win of the season. Billy Spillman secured the E-Mod win by crossing the line first over Ben Stockton and Eddie Ingram. Father and Son duo David and Dillon Raffurty began the Mod-Lite main event on the front row but as has been the case for the last several Mod-Lite events in the area, Dillon Raffurty prevailed to take his third at Lakeside this year. Justin Kinderknecht came away second in the event with David Raffurty third.

For the next three main events, Hank Thompson and Kevin Anderson began the night on the front row of the USRA Stock Car main event but it wasn’t long before Brett Heeter took command and sailed on to his sixth victory of the season. Anderson went on to finish second while Tim Shields advanced to third. Kerry Davis and Tim Karrick occupied row one of the 20-lap USRA Modified feature but it was third-starting Darron Fuqua who ultimately took his fifth Lakeside victory as Davis’ recent string of bad luck continued. Seventh-starting Aaron Marrant finished runner-up with Mark Schafman rounding out the top three. Andy Bryant started the $1,500-to-win USRA B-Mod race from third on the grid but it did not matter as he surpassed both point’s leader Tim Powell and multiple-time feature winner Brad Smith to prevail in the added money event for his fourth Lakeside trip to victory lane this season. Powell went on to finish second with former National B-Mod champion J.C. Morton in third. The night concluded with a 5-star rated Fireworks show that lit up the night sky to bring Racing on the River’s Edge for this week to a close.
