inclement weather Saturday.
All action originally scheduled for Saturday
afternoon will be run on Sunday beginning with the

Friday evening saw qualifying take place for the
Modified feature, and it was five-time North-South

seconds beat out Ryan Moore, who qualified second.

the top five qualifiers.
The PASS pole wasn't the only thing Bell won on
Friday night as he also scored the win in the 35-lap
feature for the USAC Midgets. The native Oklahoman
started seventh and quickly made his way to the
front of the field. He inherited the lead after a
restart on lap 18.
"I just have to give a big thanks to the guys," said

I just need to get the other (win)."
