Hughes brews victory at 81 Speedway, eclipses Scott for USMTS points lead
Defending United States Modified Touring Series national champion Jason Hughes put himself in the driver’s seat for a third straight and fourth overall on Sunday night with a wire-to-wire victory at the 81 Speedway that put him atop the standings in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental.
Starting on the outside of the front row next to his teammate, Ryan Gustin, Hughes took command at the drop of the green flag and never relinquished the spot as he sailed to a $4,500 payday and the 153rd USMTS victory of his career.
Cade Dillard, who led more than 30 laps the previous two events but came away without a win, got by Gustin with 13 laps in the books and inched close to Hughes on a couple of occasions but could never mount a serious challenge to Hughes.
Gustin eventually found his rhythm on the low side of the racing surface and was able to regain the second spot from Dillard with six laps to go, giving the Hughes Racing Chassis stable a one-two finish.

With the win, Hughes toppled Stormy Scott from the top of the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup rankings.
