West Plains Motor Speedway's 17th annual Open-Wheel Modified Show-Me Championship, sponsored by Larry Shaw Race Cars and Mark Martin Ford and Chevrolet, was under a rain delay on its opening day.

But, by doubling up on the last day and running an afternoon round as well as a evening round, the event was completed as scheduled and Shawn Walsh of Ash Flat is the new event winner, claiming the $5,000 top prize.

Walsh, who qualified into the event through round one, knows his way around the track as he has been the track points champion several times and is currently leading in the weekly points race.

Jeff Taylor of Jonesboro was a close contender, coming in second. The other top finishers included: Brad Buck of Paragould, Brandon Ball of West Plains, Brandon Smith of Batesville, Scott Crigler of Alton, Ben Ledgerwood of Birch Tree, Robby Arnold of Paragould, Hunter Rasdon of Jonesboro and Rustin Miller of Houston, Mo.
