DAVENPORT (K PROMOTIONS) – The Spring Challenge was held Saturday at Davenport Speedway. The event jointly promoted by K Promotions and Darkside Promotions.
In the Modified feature, Timmy Current held the early lead, despite four cautions in the first ten laps. Spencer Diercks, who started along side Current in the front row, was one of the few drivers dedicated to the high side. During the second half of the twenty-lap main, the high line became the fast way around the track.
Diercks took the lead on lap fifteen and pulled away in the final laps for the win. Matt Werner moved up late to finish second with Current holding on for third. Chris Zogg and Bryce Garnhart had a tense battle for fourth, with Zogg getting the position at the checkers.
