Sanders decimates USMTS field in Mason City
MASON CITY, Iowa (May 26) -- Mother Nature spared the Mason City Motor Speedway Thursday evening, but Rodney Sanders wasn't as kind to his fellow USMTS competitors during the "All-In" 30 presented by Diamond Jo Casino. When the 26-year-old from Happy, Texas, streaked beneath the checkered flag at the end of the 32-lap Casey's General Stores "A" Main, it was more than eight seconds before runner-Up Jason Hughes followed suit. And against a stout field featuring the Best of the Best in the sport, the 2013 and 2014 USMTS national champion lapped all but seven cars in a dominating effort. "I saw a bunch of guys that run well right in front of us," Sanders said. Sanders is no stranger to rim-riding around the high side of a dirt track, but it's been a missing element for many years at the North Iowa Fairgrounds facility. First-year promoter Al Hejna-along with his son-in-law, Ryne Staley, and USMTS founder Todd Staley-took over the promotional duties here shortly after the end of the 2015 season which was ended abruptly due to low car count and miserable fan turnout. Fixing the neglected racing surface was a primary objective from day one, and the former I-35 Speedway re-opened as Mason City Motor Speedway just four days ago to a packed house and full pits with two- and three-wide racing. Thursday's show was more of the same despite what looked to be an easy bet on a rain-out early on. "They've done a lot of work to it, and for the better," Sanders added. "With all the rain they had and how good the track was considering that, I'm sure there will be more specials here." Nothing could keep Sanders out of Widow Wax Victory Lane on Thursday-not even the weather. For Sanders though it did rain hundred-dollar bills (30 of them to be exact). 3.

Jesse Sobbing and Zack VanderBeek were also in the mix with Hughes and Scott, finishing fourth and fifth, respectively, while Rodney Sanders rebounded from a second-lap flat tire to claw his way back to sixth.
Sobbing leap-frogged back ahead of Sanders by three points (1236 to 1233) and VanderBeek is close behind with 1211 markers. Fourth-place finisher Ryan McAninch was also disqualified for a similar infraction, dropping him from fourth and jumping Jason Hughes, Rodney Sanders and Brent Larson into third, fourth and fifth, respectively. On the first lap of Fast Shafts Heat Race #2, Sanders and fellow front-row starter Jon Thompson bumped going into the first corner. Jesse Sobbing came into the event atop the points standings, but had a night that was about as long as that of Sanders, albeit he kept his MB Customs on all four wheels all night. With one down and 14 races to go in The Hunt, Sanders leads Sobbing by five points (177 to 172) with Ramirez in third with 159 markers.

Coming off three-straight wins in USMTS competition, Rodney continued his streak to advance three spots in his heat race to record a win. With a total field of 58 Open Wheel Modifieds, Rodney Sanders never looked back from his pole position starting spot in the finale to record his fourth straight feature win.

With another packed house of 36 Open Wheel Modifieds, Sanders landed the #20 Kimrad Transport Modified in victory lane for the fifth straight night.

One year ago when the United States Modified Touring Series invaded the 81 Speedway near Wichita, Kan., Rodney Sanders led the entire main event until a late-race caution nearly thwarted his victory celebration when Zack VanderBeek pulled ahead o the white flag lap only to have Sanders nip him at the line and preserve the win. In Thursdays return of the USMTS Caseys Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental, there were no late cautions and no surprises, and Sanders walked away with his fourth straight USMTS victory after winning the final three shows last weekend. After quickly climbing to the front after starting seventh, Johnny Scott pulled to within three car-lengths of Sanders early in the 40-lap race but was never able to mount a serious challenge for the lead. Instead, Sanders sliced his way through the back-markers like a hot knife through butter and left his chasers far behind to battle it out for bridesmaid honors. "I saw (Franz) on the bottom there early, but I was kind of too free getting into the corner and too tight on the throttle to stay down there so I was just trying to keep my momentum up," Sanders said in victory lane. One of those other drivers, Rodney Sanders, failed to finish the main event for the first time since that same June 27 event. While battling among the top five in Thursdays feature, a battery failure sidelined the defending United States Modified Touring Series national champion just 10 laps into the race. Zack VanderBeek, who finished second to Sanders here earlier this summer, wound up with his second runner-up finish in as many tries at C. Ray Halls 3/8-mile oval in Park City, Kan. Sanders remains atop the points standings in the Hunt for the Caseys Cup with a 24-point cushion over Scott (438 to 414). Happy, Texas - Rodney Sanders pushed his 2014 win tally to fourteen over the weekend with yet another triumph in his #20 Swan Energy/MB Customs/Geddes Racing Engine Open Wheel Modified. Rodney Sanders was back in victory lane with the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) on Thursday evening at 81 Speedway (Park City, Kansas). Sanders prevailed over Zack VanderBeek by eleven one-thousandths of a second in a finish that is sure to be talked about for years to come. Thirty competitors entered the event, and a heat race win once again sent Sanders to the redraw for the feature, where he received the second starting spot alongside Dallas Everett. From the outside front row, Sanders blasted to the race lead at the drop of the green flag. Rodney held a commanding lead out front until the race's first yellow flag slowed the action on lap eighteen. Sanders fended off second running Zack VanderBeek through two more caution periods before the third and final yellow flag waved with three to go. This time, Sanders couldn't shake VanderBeek, and the two raced door-to-door with Sanders pounding the cushion around the 3/8 mile while VanderBeek ran low. This time, Sanders couldn't shake VanderBeek, and the two raced door-to-door with Sanders pounding the cushion around the 3/8 mile while VanderBeek ran low. A bobble by Sanders allowed VanderBeek to inch ahead at the white flag. To go with his win Sanders opened the weekend with a third place finish at Valley Speedway (Grain Valley, Missouri) before ending the weekend on Friday and Saturday with runner-up efforts at Elk City Speedway (Elm Mott, Texas) and Route 66 Motor Speedway (Amarillo, Texas). "The competition is so tough on this tour right now with guys like Zack (VanderBeek) and Stormy (Scott) really on top of their game so to get a win any night is a big deal for us," said Sanders.
