LAS VEGAS — The runner-up on night one was the winner on night two at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Dirt Track.

Josh Vogt scored the $750 IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified feature victory on Thursday, beat­ing Wednesday winner R.C. Whitwell across the stripe in the FVP Outlaw Showdown event.

Vogt started the 20-lapper from outside row two and gained the lead early on by passing Brad Pounds and Greg Mancebo. David Karst challenged on the inside before Whitwell snuck past for the second spot.

“The track was more hooked up tonight than it was Wednesday. I ran most of the way on the bot­tom,” Vogt said after his first win of the season. “I tried not to let the cautions worry me and just raced my race.”

“It was great to get this win. We’ve run third, second and now first in our first three races of the year,” he added. “We have a real good car, a DMR by BMS, and now we can go for some even bigger wins.”

Rob Sanders and Cody Laney completed the top five. Sanders was the hard charger after starting 13th.
