Tyler Davis Takes the Checkers in Modifieds for First Win; Kyle Wood Victorious the Week Prior

Midlothian, VA – Mike Rudy barely missed the 14-second bracket running a 15.001 to get the extra pole point with one of the larger fields of Modifieds at Southside Speedway this year. Adam Medek who qualified fifth fastest benefited from a big invert on the field. Unfortunately for him, Tyler Davis took the lead from him on the first lap. There were five cautions through the race but Davis was able to handle every restart and ended up winning by over half a second with Michael Johnson who tried the high side every time the cone was put out. This was Tyler’s first win in a modified and victory lane was full of lots of hugs for the winner from family, friends and other drivers.

 

Kyle Wood’s third place finish comes on the heels a victory the week prior when he took the lead from rookie Matt Morgan on lap five. Wood qualified fourth that evening but would end up taking the green flag in the second position after a two car invert and post-qualifying penalty. Mike Rudy, who has been the fastest car week in and week out but has fallen victim to som very bad luck, looked to have the break he needed. After pulling a number two pill Rudy should have started on the outside pole. However, after being moved to the rear of the field, he would not have enough time to come through the field. In a race slowed only once, Kyle Wood was able to keep the hard charging Mike Rudy at bay and take home the victory. Mike Rudy, Tyler Davis, Michael Johnson and Lauren Edgerton would round out the top five.
