KELLER TURNS TO VICTORY LANE IN MANDAN
Scott Gartner and Travis Tooley battled for the lead in the IMCA Modified feature. Tooley grabbed the lead before an early race caution regrouped the field. On the restart, Gartner lost positions to Spencer Wilson, Shawn Strand, Casey Arneson and Marlyn Seidler. As Travis Tooley started to pull away, Jeremy Keller cracked the top five and quickly passed Arneson, Strand and Wilson. Keller reeled in Tooley and took the lead with 10 laps to go. A couple of late race cautions erased Keller’s large lead and put a speedy Arneson on his rear bumper. But on the final restart, Arneson struggled to get around Keller. When the checkered flag waved, Jeremy Keller held off Casey Arneson for the feature win. Travis Tooley, who led most of the race, settled for third place while Marlyn Seidler finished fourth ahead of Crist Pittenger.
