HUMBOLDT, Kan. – Austin Kaplan used what he learned by winning the first “B” Main to roar past a dozen drivers in 20 laps and score a $500 victory Thursday night in the USRA B-Mod feature during opening night of the King of America III Modified Nationals at Humboldt Speedway.

Despite a stout field stacked with the region’s best USRA B-Mod racers, Kaplan maneuvered his way to the front of the pack and then blasted by Jake Richards with five laps to go in scoring his career-first Iron Man Challenge feature win.

Jason Schlangen took home third ahead of Shawn Strong and Mike Striegle.

Seventeenth-starting Troy Hovey was sixth, while Dustin Bluhm, Jared Timmerman, Jeremy Chambers and Tim Van Gotten rounded out the top 10 finishers.
