ANDERSON— Jason Philpot of Sacramento took the lead away from Oregon driver Rich Cobb on a lap 14 restart, and held off the challenges of Medford, Oregon’s Randy Houston the final 30 laps to capture his first season victory in the North State Modified Series, presented by Protect the Harvest, at Shasta Speedway Saturday night. Santa Rosa’s Cameron Austin finished a strong third, and with setting fast time over the 14 car field, regained the NSMS points lead from Robbie Knittel of Lodi. Austin’s fast time was a 16.407, Charlie Collins, on his first run with NSMS in several seasons, clocked in second with a 16.442 second lap. Darrin Knight was third (16.747) and Knittel was fourth (16.503). Austin drew the number 10 chip to set up the staring grid, placing Ian Elliott and Cobb in the front row. Cobb darted out in front at the start of the 60 lap feature with Philpot driving the high side around Elliott on lap five. Both Houston and Keith Bloom swapped places with Elliott on lap seven as Cobb and Philpot were pulling away from the pack. Bloom lost power and stalled on the track on lap 12 to bring out the first yellow flag. He pitted and returned to take the next green flag. Cobb and Philpot ran side-by-side the next two rounds before Philpot took control of the race. The race was slowed again two rounds later when Bloom and Herman Pulyer made contact. The restart saw Darrin Sullivan drive under Houston for third as Austin and Knittel were battling for fifth. Pulyer spun on lap 33 for another caution. Houston swapped places with Sullivan on the restart, inched by Cobb two circuits later, and set his sights on Philpot. Pulyer lost a rear end, spilling grease the entire length of the front-stretch, resulting in a lengthy cleanup. When action resumed Austin powered by Cobb for third. With only nine laps to go Knittel drove under Cobb, and at the Sunoco checkered flag it was Philpot, Houston, Austin, Knittel and Cobb. Next across the line were Knight, Bloom, Collins, Sullivan, Elliott, Stuart Campbell and Sal Lopez. Cobb won $100 in the Lucas Oil Dash for Cash. Bloom collected $50 for second. They both took home Lucas Oil products as well as the Scribner jugs. Philpot earned the Naake Shocks certificate. Austin was named the Keyser Hard Charger for passing the most cars. Frank’s Radios gift cards went to Houston, Campbell and Pulyer. The next North State Modified series race will be at All American Speedway in Roseville, Ca on July 6. The North State Modified Series is presented by: Protect the Harvest, Lucas Oil, Hoosier Tire West, Sunoco Race Fuels, Naake Suspension, Five Star Bodies, Racer Bling, Keyser Racing Products, Scribner Plastics, Gone Fishin’ Marine, and Franks Radios.
