Coming into the 2020 season champion Spencer Morse was looking forward to another great point’s battle to defend his 2019 Title. A string of bad luck resulting in several poor finishes has mired Morse nearly 100 points out coming into Saturdays Lee’s Family Trailer Sales Pass Mod 50. That luck seems to have finally turned as Morse scored his second win of the year Sunday at Oxford Plains Speedway.
Morse who started the feature in the seventh spot was able to capitalize on other competitor’s misfortune to quickly move his way to the front. Before lap 6 Morse overtook early leader Milo Washer to put the #34 out front for good. More, however, didn’t have it as easy as it sounds. A pair of cautions erased sizable leads forcing Morse to defend his lead throughout the contest. Morse was dogged by a very fast Ryan Ripley over the last dozen laps before beating him across the line by a car length to keep his championship hopes alive.
