With 32 Late Models entered, Godsey locked his spot into the opening night feature with a heat win while Roth came in sixth in his heat before placing fifth in his B-Main. With $5,000 on the line, Joe dropped nine spots to finish 11th while Jeff was scored 18th.
For another $5,000-to-win A-Main on Wednesday at Adams County Speedway (Quincy, Ill.), Joe passed five cars in his heat to finish third. Losing one position in the 40-lap feature, Godsey posted an 11th-place finish. Jeff’s night was over after missing a transfer spot in his heat and consolation event.
On Thursday afternoon at Spoon River Speedway (Banner, Ill.), Roth secured his spot into the feature with an 11th-to-third run in his B-Main while Godsey finished third in his heat. Joe scored a 14th-place finish while Jeff carried a steady pace to record a 19th-place outing.
The following night, Roth Motorsports invaded Federated Raceway at I-55 (Pevely, Mo.) as the DIRTcar Summer Nationals collided with the World of Case Late Model Series for the two-day St. Louis Firecracker Faceoff. Joe edged his way into the A-Main with a third-place finish in his heat while Jeff finished seventh. Roth’s night was over after finishing ninth in his consolation event while Godsey held his spot in the 40-lap feature to place ninth.
For the $20,000-to-win finale on Saturday, Roth failed to make the show while Godsey grabbed the fourth-and-final transfer spot. Starting on the eighth row, Joe faded four positions to finish 20th.
