A full grandstand was in attendance for sunny skies and 100-plus cars in the pits at Madison Speed­way on Saturday night… Nick Wranek held the early lead in the Wissota Modified feature, while Troy Berends charged the lowside and quickly took over command. Chad Ol­sen also moved through the field quickly, cutting under Wranek for second and setting his sights on Berends early. Farther be­hind, Ryan Damm, Jason Anderson, Brian Haben, and Duke Erickson raced in a cluster for fourth. Anderson slid into a solid fourth and raced down Wranek, moving to the lowside into third.
