Jim Edgington, Algona, who is beginning his first season at the wheel of a modified, was next with a :17.85 timing. Norm Baker won the first heat, Wildin the second and Nerdig took the trophy dash before Barton took over. There were only two minor collisions Don Hilbert roared into first early and hung on to win the hobby feature, a 15-lflpper that wound up the evening's fun. Results: Modifieds - 1st heat: 1.
