Fuqua Takes USRA Modified Main Event at Lucas Oil Speedway


Wheatland, Missouri (May 13, 2018) - On a Saturday night of memorable finishes in the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series, Darron Fuqua earned a thriller in the main event at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Fuqua passed Chase Domer in the final turn of the final lap of the Pitts Homes USRA Modified feature, earning $1,000 in the night's 25-lap headliner.

Fuqua, of Mayetta, Kan., weaved through lapped traffic and made a daring pass of Domer in the final 75 yards. It was Fuqua's first win at Lucas Oil Speedway and the 99th of the veteran driver's career.

Surely few were more exciting or satisfying than this one.

"I felt like I had a good car, but he was so good on the top," Fuqua said of Domer. "I was good on the bottom. It was basically follow him until he left me just a little bit around the top and that was the only thing I had.

"I just put it in there as hard as I could and I had enough momentum to get around him."

Fuqua worked his way from the ninth starting position and into contention as Domer and fellow front-row starter Ronnie Woods traded the lead five times over the first 15 laps.

In a race with only one caution, Domer caught lapped traffic with five laps to go and Fuqua continued his steady gain, setting up the thrilling finish.

"I was hoping to have a lane down low, but there was a lapped car there," Fuqua said. "I just did the one thing I had, 110 percent."

Mark Dotson came home third with Lance Town coming all the way from 17th to fourth and Woods finishing fifth.
