The DJ’s RV B-Modifieds will be racing for $500 to Win Presented by Outlaw Race Bodies. The B-Modified class has been more than intense this season. Currently Kris Jackson from Lebanon, Missouri, sits atop the points, but after a last lap incident last week, Jeff Miller was able to close the points gap to only 40.
