Ukiah, CA……This Saturday night, June 23, the North State Modified Series, presented by Protect the Harvest, comes to Ukiah Speedway for race #4 of its “2018 Driving Out Cancer Tour.” North State drivers, crews and families have dedicated this season to bringing cancer awareness to the race fans. Saturday will be the only time that the North State Modifieds will compete at Ukiah in 2018.
The NSMS points battle has flip-flopped from last season. This time last year the top five contenders hailed from Lake County. Now the top two, Kris Price and Jason Philpot, come from Sacramento. Price leads the way by 14 points. Kelseyville’s Eric Johnson sits third in points with Dustin DeRosier, Cloverdale, fourth and Darrin Sullivan, Kelseyville, fifth.
Thirty drivers have raced with NSMS in 2018 with an average car count of 19. More local cars are expected to show up for the Ukiah event. Practice will begin on Friday at 4 pm. Qualifying, the Lucas Oil Dash for Cash, and the Protect the Harvest 60 lap main event will be on Saturday.
