Ellis Wins Nationals

The next feature in line was the Liskey’s Auto and Truck Service Modifieds. 24-cars lined up to start the event, shaved down from the 38 which showed up to try and make the grid for the 50-lap feature. Alex Donnert would lead the field down to Chief Starter Jeremy Slayden’s green flag for the start of the event. Donnert would go back and forth with multi-time Spartan Speedway Champion Leroy Ellis. Ellis would finally break away on lap seven, running a somewhat unusual line around the 3/8s (.375) mile oval. But it would work for the Vermontville, Michigan driver as he took the win in dominating fashion. Alex Donnert was second with Laci Donnert, Nick Clemens and Bill Luckhurst completing the top five. John King won the Last Chance Qualifier with Alex Donnert winning the Australian Pursuit and Bobby Murany winning the heat race. Dennis Uhlman was fast time for the evening with a 16.186.
