Saturday night action at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) marked the end of the 2023 race season for drivers and fans with the 3rd Annual Hog Roast Nationals.

The night was filled with the smell of the hog roast and electrified with an early evening thunderstorm and then capped off with the roar of motors to close out the night.

The original plan to start one hour earlier was foiled by the active weather pattern, but once the last showers rolled out, the track maintenance men once again worked their magic with help from the drivers running the track back in.

Racing began shortly after 8 p.m. with a revised race program and flow, and the last checkered flag at 10:25, bringing an end to a phenomenal event night and season at the track.

Super Stocks headlined the night with a $3,000-to-win, 40-lap main event that was won by Richie Tosh while Ryan Edde collected his first-ever victory in the $1,000-to-win, 25-lap B-Mod main event. Darin Porter kept his late-season surge at CMS going with the Pure Stock win while Kenny Prince picked up the Midwest Mods win. For the final race of the season, there were 27 Super Stocks on hand, 18 B-Mods, 7 Midwest Mods, and 11 Pure Stocks Event sponsors Bryke Racing, and Rockin’ T-S Cattle Company added money for the Pure Stocks and Midwest Mod drivers for their main event.

Jake Richards and Chad Clancy earned the top starting positions for the $2,000-to-win, 25-lap B-Mod main event with Clancy taking the early lead. Clancy was fast from the onset and put several car lengths between himself and second-running Richards by lap five. Stephen Clancy, Brother of Chad, moved into third and then by lap eight found his way past Richards to make it an all-Clancy top two. A caution slowed the race at lap nine with Chad and Stephen showing the way ahead of sixth-starting Ryan Edde, Richards, and 2023 champion, Sturgis Streeter. Richards strong run came to an unexpected end on lap 11 as he quickly exited the track and retired to the infield. Shortly after, Ryan Edde and Stephen Clancy battled for second with Edde eventually grabbing the spot. BY lap 13, Edde moved up to challenge Chad Clancy for the lead and took command of the event. At lap 16, Edde led the Brothers Clancy, Streeter, and Jeremy Lile.

Lile rose one more position late in the race to finish fourth with Rex Harris and Streeter completing the top six.
