Morris III Scores On Night One In Watsonville

WATSONVILLE, Calif. — The opening night of the Pat and Jim Pettit Memorial Shootout at Ocean Speedway saw a young winner earn one of their career-best performances, with Troy Morris III claiming the 33-lap IMCA modified win. Morris encountered significant lapped traffic on lap 14 with three-wide action in front of him. A late surge from Cale Kanke earned him the 23-lap IMCA sport modified win after a marathon race with red flags and caution flags. Kanke challenged Mark Garner for second, taking the position on the outside on lap 13. Ryan Smith slowed on the top of turn two for a yellow on lap 17. Kanke challenged Curran for the lead several times over the final six laps. Kanke drove around Curran on the outside to lead lap 21 and Andrew Pearce followed him into second. Gallaher seized the opportunity to drive outside of Keldsen for the lead on lap eight.
