Photo Gallery: Schott Shines In Silver Dollar Nationals Prelim

Photos by Todd Boyd.

Lucas Schott delivered a flawless performance Friday night at the I-80 Speedway, winning both of his United States Modified Touring Series heat races and his qualifying feature to lead all drivers on opening night of the 8th Annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals. The 21-year-old from Chatfield, Minn., won his first heat from the pole and then rolled from the ninth and final starting spot in his second heat race to lead all competitors in passing points.

That put him on the pole for Moock Trucking Qualifier #1—the first of two 16-lap qualifying features—and he led every lap en route to a $1,000 payday to go along with the $400 he collected for his two heat race wins. Rodney Sanders, Jason Hughes, Dustin Sorensen, Tyler Wolff, Darron Fuqua, Lance Town and Marc Hurd rounded out the top 8 to lock themselves into the first eight spots on the inside row of Saturday’s 40-lap, $8,000-to-win USMTS main event.

Dereck Ramirez, on the other hand, finished second in both of his heat races after starting fourth and sixth, respectively in those. From the third starting spot, the Woodward, Okla., racer was also a recipient of $1,000 after winning Wojo Painting Qualifier #2. Jake O’Neil, Jake Timm, Zack VanderBeek, Jesse Sobbing, Trevor Latham, Lance Mari and Stormy Scott finished second through eighth, respectively, and will fill the first eight positions of the outside row in Saturday’s finale.

Following the qualifying features, pills were drawn to invert the top four in each with a 2 selected for the first qualifier and 4 for the second. That puts Sanders on the pole with VanderBeek to his outside for the start of Saturday’s championship race. Schott will start third and Ramirez eighth. To learn more about the United States Modified Touring Series, visit www.usmts.com online or call 515-832-7944.
