Rodney Sanders took command midway through Saturday night’s 40-lap feature and went on to win the 10th Annual USMTS Slick Mist Show-Me Shootout presented by Foley Equipment.
Sanders, of Happy, Texas, held off Dereck Ramirez and Terry Phillips in a two-lap shootout after a pair of late cautions wiped out his big lead.
It was the two-time series champ’s 91st career USMTS win, but his first triumph in a Modified at the Lucas Oil Speedway.
“We won a Late Model race here a couple of years ago, but I kind of have a love-hate relationship with this place,” said Sanders, the Casey’s General Stores USMTS National Championship points leader who picked up his fifth series win of 2019.
It was worth $3,000.
“You can go out and win one night and not make it out of the “B” Main the next,” Sanders added. “But if you have a good car, you can come from deep in the field.”
