SUPERIOR, Wis. — The Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup rolled into the AMSOIL Speedway on Wednesday afternoon and Rodney Sanders rolled out a few hours later with a $3,000 check and his 21st win of the season.

Johnny Scott claimed the pole position and paced the first dozen laps before giving way to Sanders as they came to complete lap 13.

From there, Sanders was too powerful for any of his would-be challengers and crossed the finish line a little more than three seconds ahead of Scott and Zack VanderBeek.

Making his first USMTS start, Jody Bellefeuille came from the tenth starting spot to finish fourth while Kelly Estey completed the top five.

The finish:

Rodney Sanders, Johnny Scott, Zack VanderBeek, Jody Bellefeuille, Kelly Estey, Jason Miller, Jeremy Houle, Joey Jensen, Rick Rivord, Dereck Ramirez, Brent Larson, Kelly Shryock, Jeff Spacek, Landon Atkinson, Al Uotinen, Clayton Wagamon, Jake Gallardo, Lance Town, Daniel Hilsabeck, Bob Gierke, Nikki Wrazidlo, Scott Heikkinen, Jeff Lien Jr., Stormy Scott, John Allen.
