By Dave PanskeOSHKOSH, Wis. (June 13) – T.J. Smith will argue any inference of full moon racing couple with a Friday the 13th after winning his career first Automotive Supply Company IMCA Modified feature at Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway.Smith grabbed the lead at the start with Jim Rhode Ed Lemay, Eric Arneson, Jeremy Christians and Travis Spaulding close behind. Several early cautions kept the field bunched but Smith was able to maintain to lead through a green flag run from laps four to 10.Christains moved into the runner-up spot on lap six with Mike Wedelstadt and Eddie Muenter moving into the top five by lap seven. With the field right behind for the restart, Smith again set the pace and opened a car length lead over Christians as Muenster, Rhode and Wedelstadt moved up to challenge for second.A final caution on lap 17 set up a three-lap dash, with Smith drawing on his past experience to just run his race and drove off with his first career division feature win. Muenster wrestled the second place finish from Christians on the final lap with point leader Sean Jerovetz making a late-race run to fourth over Wedelstadt and Rhode. Other feature winners were John Heinz in his second straight Total Power Sales IMCA Stock Car feature while Steve Schneider picked up his third Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod victory on the season.
