GOODLAND, Kan. (Sept. 28-29) – Jeremy Frenier wrapped up a series championship and Cody Gearhart raced his way onto the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot by winning IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified features at Sherman County Speedway’s Flatlander special.Frenier’s fourth 2013 tour win came on Saturday at Goodland and sealed the deal on the Precise Racing Blood, Sweat and Tears Series crown. Gearhart paced the main event on Sunday.Both features paid $1,500 to win. Eddie Belec ran second each night and split top two-day point bonus money with Frenier.Originally fourth on Saturday’s starting grid, Frenier moved up to the front of the outside row for the restart following a multi-car tangle on the initial green.He led all 25 laps, following the lower line to his 11th win of the season and taking the checkers five car lengths ahead of Belec. Will Brack, Ricky Alvarado and the 24th starting Gearhart completed the top five.Gearhart helped himself by drawing the outside pole on Sunday. Running with lapped traffic, his sizable lead was erased by a caution with five to go but Gearhart hung on for the flag to flag victory.Belec, Frenier, Scott Drake and Nate Moore were next across the stripe.Nick Tubbs and Jeff Tubbs topped IMCA Sunoco Stock Car features while Perry Misner bested Lloyd Meeske in the race for the Chubby Chassis BST Series crown.Nick Tubbs started fifth on Saturday, went to the top and got the lead after a couple early cautions, then pulled away while Justin Bussell and Jeff Tubbs tussled behind him. After a restart with four to go, he beat Bussell to finish by a car length.A car length was also the margin Sunday for Jeff Tubbs, who had chased long-time leader Tyler Tipton most of the 20-lapper. Nick Tubbs was third.The Tubbs brothers tied for top points and split the bonus; Jeff Tubbs had run second in three straight Flatlander features before Saturday.Misner came into the weekend with a 10 point edge in the standings over Meeske. He finished 10th on Saturday and sixth on Sunday. Meeske ran fifth on opening night and eighth in the finale.Richard Boon and Tyrel Smith were the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature winners while Jeromy Wagner finished second both nights and earned the top points bonus.
