Ith Powers To Modified Victory In Utah

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah – Mark Ith Jr. piloted his Maverik Modified to Rocky Mountain Raceways’ victory circle on Saturday.

Starting from the 12th position, Ith maneuvered his way to the front of the field where he engaged some of Rocky Mountain Raceways most competitive Maverik Modified players.

He joined the likes of Michael Haddenham, Lynn Hardy, and defending Maverik Modified champion Tyler Whetstone in a chase for first, proving that this is Rocky Mountain Raceways’ feature division.

With just 12 laps to go in the 50-lap main, Ith passed front runner Haddenham on the inside for the lead. Whetstone finished in second, Hardy in third, Haddenham in fourth, and Eric Rhead rounded out the top five. Ith Jr. is the first racer to pick up a second Maverik Modified main event win this season in a highly competitive, close class. His first win occurred on May 31. Ith also goes home with a heat race win and fast qualifier status.

Other winners Saturday included Kevin Truscott (hornets) and Nathan Westmoreland (junior stingers).
