GRAND FORKS, N.D. (July 28, 2017) – Scott Greer jumped out to the early lead of the Schill Construction Modified feature. On lap three, Ryan Schroeder was battling with Nolan Olmstead for second when Schroeder jumped over the right rear of Olmstead and slid off the track at a high rate of speed. Schroeder was unable to continue the race, while Olmstead restarted in the second position.
On the ensuing restart, a four car pile up occurred in tour four as Dustin Wahl and Dustin Strand made contact. Wahl spun at corner exiting in front of a pack of cars that had nowhere to go.
On the restart, Lance Schill, who was pulling double duty, took the lead from Greer with a power move on the high side of turn one. Once out front, Schill quickly raced to a comfortable 10-car length advantage over Greer.
In the closing laps, Ward Imrie moved into the top three as he battled with Greer for second. Greer was able to fend off Imrie’s challenge before placing a bid for the lead with four to go. Greer pulled even with Schill in turns one and two, but Schill was too strong up top and held the position.
Schill withstood one final restart with two to go as he cruised to his first career WISSOTA Modified feature win and second win of the night.
