The North State and Upstate Modifieds entertained fans at the Redwood Acres Raceway over the weekend, as they joined the late models, Legends, bombers, mini stocks and roadrunners on a busy night of action at the local track.

The evening’s racing included the he 60-lap Dave McMurray, Sr. Memorial race for the modifieds.

Brandon White was fast time with a 16.435 lap in qualifying, while Scott Winters was the victor of the Lucas Oil Dash For Cash for the North State Modifieds while Sammy Nuno took the Upstate Modified heat race victory.

Nuno moved to the lead at the start of the feature race as the field fell into line and he held the lead until a lap-25 restart, when Eric Price took over. 

After another restart in the final 15 laps allowed Winters to move back alongside Price, and the two had an epic back-and-forth battle for the lead.

Winters eventually prevailed by using the high line and took the checkered flag and a $2,000 winner’s check. 

White, Furia, Price and Kylei Keown rounded out the top five.

Late model action was dominated by David Miller, as he won the main event over Jerry Peterson, Luke Hall, Romeo Venza and Nick Ford.
