As the Hoosier Modifieds enter their fourth season, if Saturday nights feature is any indication about the competition in 2015, fans are in for a great season. A strong field of 17 modifieds signed in to do battle. Unfortunately one team night would end early as the #19 of Dean Scott season would start with engine problems sidelining the team for the night.

Veterans #77 Chad Strawn and #36 of Gary Elliott also picked up wins in the 10 lap heat race action.

When the green flag waved it was the #20 of Hearty getting sideways and stacking the field but all continued going.

From that point on it was a classic side by side , wheel to wheel battle between the #39 of Stickle and 3 time defending champion of #8 Gary McLean. Although the #8 of McLean is credited with leading from lap 12 to the finish, it was a fierce battle to the end. The highest placing rookie of the race was the #79h of Cory Horner, who recorded his best OSCAAR finish with a third place finish.
