Nester wins Modified race at Anderson Speedway

ANDERSON, Ind. — For 41 laps Brian Nester chased Scott Coe for the lead in the Top Speed Modified feature at Anderson Speedway, but won after surviving a last lap incident.

Coe, the fast qualifier, started fifth in the field but used the outside line to take the lead in seven laps. Nester moved into second on lap eight and the chase for the lead was on during Madison County Stormwater Quality Night.

Several times Nester attempted to bump Coe out of the low groove to no avail. But with a lap remaining the two leaders closed on the third place car of Jerry Hammond.

Both Coe and Nester got sideways on the back straight with the two spinning in turn three and collecting the cars of Hammond and Herb Johnson Jr.

Nester was able to continue across the finish line followed by Tim Burkett, Coe, Chris Jennings and Mark Bott.

“I admit I got into Scott and backed off,” Nester said. “We both got sideways on the back straight.”

Both drivers struggled to maintain control of their cars when they entered turn three with Coe battling a flat right rear tire.

Martinsville driver Danny Trent said he was competing in the McGunegill Engine Performance Late Model Division at Anderson Speedway to record wins and he accomplished that feat in his first appearance of the year.

Trent inherited the lead when Keith Sterkowitz was spun in turn four by Josh Cave on lap 23. Cave was trying to bump Sterkowitz out of the low groove.

The caution flag waved on lap 25 when Rob Noel spun in turn two. On the restart Jeff Williams and Jeff Marcum bumped on the front straight which dropped Williams from third to fifth.

Sterkowitz and Cave passed Marcum on laps 27 and 28 and started to close on Trent, who held on to the victory by .391-seconds.

“I was a little lucky tonight,” Trent said. “I’ve had good cars here and didn’t win.”

Early in the race Sterkowitz used the outside groove on a restart to get around leader Ronnie Rose and remained in front until the spin on lap 23.

In Front Wheel Drive action Jerry Dane returned to action with a victory in the car driven the first two weeks of the season by Nick Warner.

Dane used an inside move to get past Trevin Henson. Henson was passed by Chris Jennings and Elliott McKinney in the final five laps to claim podium positions.
