La Monte, Missouri -- Weeknight dirt track races mark the summer holiday season in Northwestern Missouri, and tonight Russ Wood and his #14 Fast Lane Engines/TeamVeryAggressive Chevy modified headed to the 3/8ths-mile clay roundabout of La Monte's LA Raceway. Racing through about 30 entrants, the #14 started 5th of 8 in the qualifying heat and gained ground, finishing up 3rd to secure a starting spot in the feature event. Wood, with one win at 1/2-mile Lakeside Speedway on the season, lined up 8th among 15 starters in the main, tracked near the pace despite losing positions while patiently sorting a recently-repaired Allen/Wood Racing chassis throughout, slipping as far back as 10th. Wood found a favorable line in the final laps, passing cars and advancing in a journeyman drive to come home 6th. Columbia, Missouri's, Galen Hassler (#25) took the win.
