Night two of the Joe Duvall Funkadelic Dirt Track and Honky Tonk Extravaganza concluded a whirlwind of a weekend. 45 cars signed in to tackle the Salina High Banks just 40 minutes northwest from Arrowhead on night one.

While Arrowhead’s A-Main was dominated by Heartland Modified Tour stars at the front of the field, the race at Salina featured a pair of battles. Two Heartland Modified Tour cars and two American Racer Modified Series cars battled at both ends of the fight.

The field came to green with “The Superintendent” Jason Pursley showing the way, but rookie ARMS contender Chase Hatton laid the pressure on in the early going. After a handful of circuits, Pursley looked to run away and hide, at one point possessing a full straight away lead on the field. However, the lead didn't last. Disaster struck on lap 12 when a suspension failure ended Pursley’s run.

An aggressive slider from Joe Duvall on the impending restart saw the Club 91 entry take the lead. Pacing comfortably until approaching traffic, Tyler Wolff stalked the 91 and made a move with just 3 laps to go. Working his way to the inside off of turn 4, Duvall immediately went into defense mode to fend off the ARMI Contractors 4w. Running nearly side by side the last 3 laps, Duvall dove for the bottom of turn 3 on the final lap to defend the bottom of the speedway. Wolff was there and the resulting contact left Wolff with a flat right front and out of contention.

A two lap dash to the finish proved the be no issue for Duvall, as he crossed the line victorious. In a show of great sportsmanship Wolff and Duvall shared congratulatory words in victory land before Duvall turned his attention the the crowd saying, “These races are so dang cool to be a part of and to promote. But it’s really about you all in the grandstands tonight. Thank you so much for being here. Without you there is no Funkadelic!”

The evenings earlier five heat races were won by Timothy Culp, Jason Pursley, Joe Duvall, Jax Redline, and Chase Hatton.

The two shows just completed are the only time the two Heartland Promotions owned tours will compete side by side the entire season. The Heartland Modified Tour Presented by Real Racing Wheels races again in two weeks, with a pair of shows in the Kansas City area. In three weeks, the American Racer Modified Series Presented by Day Motorsports has a two day run in eastern Oklahoma.
