PLYMOUTH, Ind. – Tommy Beezley II led the list of feature winners Saturday night at Plymouth Speedway by capturing the UMP modified main event.
Beezley and Zeke McKenzie had a good battle for the lead once the green flag waved for the start of the UMP modified feature, but Beezley had a strong car. McKenzie did everything he could do to get by Beezley for the entire race, trying both the high and low sides of the track, but he couldn’t find a way by.
Meanwhile, points leader Jamie Lomax, was on his way through the field after starting sixth. He passed McKenzie for the second spot but a caution came out on lap 14 after Christopher Anstead spun and the lineup reverted to the last completed lap. That put Lomax back behind McKenzie.
Lomax put the pressure on McKenzie on the restart of the race but McKenzie slammed the door on his momentum. A caution came out on lap 19 of the 20-lap feature which set up the last chance to shake up the podium finish for the leaders, but it ended with Beezley driving to victory, McKenzie second and Lomax in third.
“We started out pretty rough this season but we’re slowly gaining on it a little bit. We’re getting closer,” said Beezley.
Other feature winners Saturday included Bryce Shidler (super streets and thunder stocks) and Dawson Stealy (600 open sprints).
