Brad Herbert continued his excellent season, when he won his fifth Feature Race of the season, when winning the Modified Sedan main event at the Gulf Western and Independent Oils Raceway, Latrobe, his second at the venue.
Herbert and Trent Quillerat who would start on the front for the twenty lap A Main, with the latter getting the best of the start, leading Herbert through the first four laps.
Herbert snuck under Quillerat on lap five to take the lead, with Josh Stephens third.
On a slick race track, Andy Russell, Brad McKendrick and Jake Taurian were all single file further back in the field. Taurian got under both of them in the concluding stages to move to fourth, but he was half a lap behind Herbert who held a two car length advantage over Quillerat through the final laps. Stephens practically competed the full twenty laps by himself.
The next event for Modified Sedans will be the State Title in two weeks time.
