Marble, PA….9/11/2021……….The BRP Modified Tour made their first of two visits of the season at Latrobe Speedway on Saturday night. This was the first time since 2004 that the BRP Modified Tour series raced at Latrobe Speedway and the first time under the ownership of Dennis Bates. There were 18 cars on hand for the 35-lap feature event and when the checkered flags flew Rex King, Jr. was in victory lane for the fourth time this season.


Rex King, Jr. and Kevin Long led the field to the drop of the green flag and King, Jr. jumped into the lead on the first lap. A restart on lap ten then found third place starter, Garrett Krummert get the lead after going high in turn two and powering by King, Jr. for the lead. Krummert led the field through several caution periods for flat tires and even a red flag for someone in the stands until a caution waved on lap thirty-one. After several attempts to restart the race, when the green finally flew for the final time, Rex King, Jr. passed Krummert coming off of the second turn to get the lead and go on to get the win.


Garrett Krummert held on to finish second with Chad Brachmann third. Fourth place went to tenth place starter, Rex King, Sr. and Brad Rapp who blew a tire during the feature and pitted, returned to finish fifth. Heats were won by Krummert, Brachmann and Rex King, Jr.
