    Three heat races and a B-Main set the field for the Midwest Open Wheel Association 30 lap 410 Sprint feature in their second stop at 34 Raceway this year. Twenty-two cars started the main event with Critter Malone and Terry McCarl on the front row.

    A flip in turn one by Matt Harms brought out the red flag on the first lap of the race stopping the main event briefly. When the action resumed it would be Malone taking the early lead. Malone was holding a commanding lead before he suddenly slowed on the back stretch eventually coming to a stop bringing out the first caution of the night. When racing resumed, Terry McCarl took over the number one spot and would begin to pull away from the field. Another red flag came out on lap seventeen after a car flipped in turn two and when the racing resumed, Danny Smith took advantage of the restart and moved in to the second spot behind McCarl. McCarl continued to lead the field for the next nine laps. Then on lap twenty-seven of the thirty lapper, Smith would get by McCarl for the lead on very fast track and went on to take the checkered flag.

    Austen Becerra, Carthage, Il. picked up his second straight win. Becerra took the lead on the first lap and never looked back. Billy Stanford took over the second spot on lap six of the twelve lap race and Brandon Lambert would follow to finish third.

    It was Season Championship night for the Weikert Iron and Metal IMCA Sport Mods and getting the win and championship was Tony Dunker of Quincy, Il. Dunker took the lead from his front row start and never looked back. John Oliver, moved into the second spot on lap nine of the fifteen lap race to follow Dunker across the finish line in the sixteen car feature.

    The Holmes Concrete Mod Lites also completed their 2012 point season Saturday with their Season Championship night. Mike Morrill, also would get the win and track championship taking the checkered flag ahead of Evan Epperson and Greg Rossell.
