Schott Puts Enid Speedway In USMTS Win Column

Photos by Tyler Rinken.

Lucas Schott sailed into USMTS victory lane on a windy Sunday at the Enid Speedway, leading all 35 laps of the main event to notch his second win of the weekend and seventh of his career. From the pole, Schott remained in command despite early pressure from Johnny Scott and a late-race charge from Ryan Gustin, who narrowed the gap between himself and the leader from ten to two car-lengths over the final five laps.

Although Schott walked away with the $2,825 winner’s share of the prize money, it was a return to form for ‘The Reaper’ as he has endured mechanical woes during the early parts of the 2018 campaign. Dereck Ramirez came on strong at the end as well, stealing fourth away from Scott in the final stages of the contest while Saturday’s winner, Rodney Sanders, came from the 13th starting spot to claim fifth. USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup points leader Jake O’Neil was sixth, Stormy Scott wound up seventh, Zack VanderBeek earned an eighth-place paycheck, Tyler Wolff nabbed ninth and Chad Wheeler rounded out the top ten.

The tireless USMTS titans are back at it next week, May 4-6, for another blockbuster tripleheader that begins on Friday at the I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., and then moves to the Tri-State Speedway in Pocola, Okla., on Saturday before making their first-ever trip to the Creek County Speedway in Kellyville, Okla., on Sunday.

For those unable to be there in person, every lap of every race in every division all three nights will be broadcast live on www.RacinDirt.com. To learn more about the United States Modified Touring Series, visit www.usmts.com online or call 515-832-7944.
