|Beard Nails Down Turkey Bowl Victory|
Defending Turkey winner Kris Jackson of Lebanon took the opening lead in the B Modified feature and never looked back as he lead all 20 laps. Jackson kept the middle groove fast as USRA National B Modified champion Scott Drake had to come from the 6th starting spot and was using the extreme high groove. Jackson was using a Spec B mod motor built from Lebanon's Richmont Engines while Drake has in his GM Performance 602 Crate Motor. Good fast paced racing followed behind the lead duo. 15 of the 20 starters finished on the lead lap in the caution free event which featured an all-star field of drivers.
Joplin's Justin Comer made the winning move around leader Jay Reynolds on lap 11 to grab the Legends feature which saw 4 wide racing during the early stages. The race only had 1 caution early as front runner Wayne Johnston was involved in an incident in turn 4 ending his night. Dave Comer grabbed the opening lap lead as Reynolds then took command on lap 2 as Chuck Comer followed. Justin Comer moved into the runner-up spot on the restart and began to close in on the fast moving Reynolds.
Reynolds was starting to see his car moving up the track during the run as Justin Comer really gathered quickly. 10th place starting Rex Merritt was perhaps the fastest car during the run and was closing quickly but ran out of time. Comer the Springfield Raceway 2012 Legends Champion was followed by Reynolds, Merritt, James McDugle and Dave Comer as 15 of the 22 starters finished on the lead lap.
