Midvale Speedway MSA Supermodified 30 lap feature event as reported by Chris Kail of Midvale Speedway.
The #81 of Denny Fisher and the #30 of Rookie point leader Talon Stephens brought the field to Chief Starter Terry Colletti's green flag. Fisher, who currently sits 2nd in points, took the lead off turn two with Stephens in 2nd and the #8 of Brandon Fisher in 3rd. As the early laps clicked off the board, Stephens was all over Fisher. Stephens, whose brother Trent holds the track record at Midvale, was able to finally make a nice move to the inside on lap 8 to take the point. The machine on the charge was the #7 of fastest qualifier Charlie Schultz. They don't call him "Chargin" Charlie for nothing and he was knifing his way to the front. On lap 12, Schultz was up to second from his 7th starting position, setting his sights on Stephens who had about a 5 or 6 car length lead. Schultz caught Stephens on lap 16 as the duo had built up a half straightaway lead over the Fisher family, who were battling for 2nd. After putting up a four lap fight, Stephens relinquished the lead on lap 20 to Schultz after a power move to the inside down the back straightaway. The only caution flew on lap 20 as AJ Lesiecki in the #77 spun off turn four. On the restart, Schultz would blast out front and set sail. The Fisher's luck turned sour just after the restart, as the #8 of Brandon, who was running 4th, had to pull pit side after trailing some smoke. Denny in the #81 slipped off turn two and started to fade to the latter half of the top 5. It took Schultz quite a few years of racing Late Model's and Super Modified's at Midvale Speedway to pick up his first feature win back in 2014. He wouldn't have to wait nearly as long to pick up #2. The Lorain OH driver in the DEI, Action Auto Body and May Motorsports sponsored #7 would cruise to victory at his favorite track and salute the crowd with a wing stand in Downtown Ford Victory Lane. Finishing the top 5 was Stephens, Lesiecki with a nice recovery after his spin, Jon Henes and Denny Fisher.

(SANDUSKY, OH, JULY 5th, 2016)- The Sandusky Speedway held its first supermodified event of the racing season this past weekend July 2nd as the winged warriors of the Midwest Supermodified Association invaded the half-mile.

On the restart, Winningham would again spin on the front straightaway, setting up another quick restart with Wyckoff leading Kenny Sharp, Wiggins, Wells, and Travis Eddy.
Wiggins and Eddy would take the second and third positions on the front straightaway from Kenny Sharp on lap eighteen. Dave Dobbins would take the fifth position on lap twenty in turn four while Travis Eddy would take the runner-up position on lap twenty-one in turn four.
