Cool temperatures and clear skies greeted the racers on the second day of the doubleheader weekend. The circuit is one of the longest on the tour at 1.5 miles and each race was scheduled for eight laps with a competition caution at the midpoint of each event.

In the Pro Modified race, Tim Farr took the lead after grabbing the holeshot in his Can-Am. On lap two, Chaney took the lead after making contact with Farr in the esses. Farr spun and recovered, holding onto third as Zach Szymik took second.

Chaney has finished second in all six events prior to this one and was happy to finally get the victory. The win allows him to pad his points lead to 14 on VanEperen.

“Can-Am goes one-two and I pad my points lead…finally,” said Chaney. “I came to this race expecting a win. We have some good points on Rodney now and that’s some of the pressure off of me. I want to win more races, but taking a second or third is a little easier. The whole team has been good all year. I’m super happy with the Can-Am X3. We’re taking a desert car and making it a competitive short-course car.”
