usmts 1

LIBERAL, Kan. — Jeremy Payne continued his dominance in the Arbor Masters Central Region presented by Day Motor Sports Friday night at the Liberal Fairgrounds Speedway with his fourth win in nine starts as the USMTS Casey’s Cup Series paid their first-ever visit to the 3/8-mile D-shaped clay oval.

A runner-up finish in Beyea Custom Headers Heat Race #1 earned the 27-year-old from Springfield, Mo., a spot in the redraw where he picked the pole position for the 40-lap main event.

From there, he led every lap to secure his 15th career USMTS victory and his second $4,000 paycheck in as many nights.

Dereck Ramirez of Woodward, Okla., ran in the runner-up spot from start to finish, but was unable to challenge Payne for the lead and crossed the finish line 4.449 seconds behind the winner.

 

New Sharon, Iowa’s Zack VanderBeek finished third, Rodney Sanders of Happy, Texas, was started and finished fourth and Johnny Scott of Las Cruces, N.M., netted the fifth spot.

Jason Hughes, Kelly Shryock, Thomas Tillison Jr., George White and Rookie of the Year points leader Trevor Hunt rounded out the top 10 finishers.

Another rookie candidate, Joey Galloway of Manor, Sask., Canada, started 22nd and finished 12th to garner his first Mesilla Valley Transportation Hard Charger Award.

Payne has a semi-comfortable points lead in the Arbor Masters Central Region as he holds a 64-point cushion over Hughes with three events remaining. The final three events will take place Tuesday, July 16, at the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., and Friday-Saturday, July 19-20, at the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., during the 3rd Annual Silver Dollar Nationals.
