PUTNAMVILLE -- Young Dakota Jackson became the newest driver to add his name to the who's who of winning sprint car pilots to claim a feature win at Lincoln Park Speedway on Friday night as he held off a determined challenge from USAC veteran Bryan Clauson.

Dakota Jackson (No. 3) holds the lead over Bryan Clauson in he closing laps of Friday's A-Main at Lincoln Park Speedway.
Jackson led from the opening green flag, but had Clauson to deal with throughout the feature. Jackson held fast to his bottom line and made the decision stick as Clauson tried multiple lines over the track in hopes of chasing Jackson down. However, Jackson wasn't going to give up the chance to win the first A-main of his sprint car career.

Clauson had a chance late as Casey Riggs brought out a caution with five laps remaining. On the re-start, Jackson stayed on the bottom and got a good start as Clauson went back to the cushion at the top of the track. He was able to show his nose to Jackson with one lap remaining, but Jackson got a good bit coming out of turn four and scored the feature victory. Casey Shuman came home third ahead of Coleman Gulick, Bub Cummings, Seth Parker, Dave Darland, Robert Ballou, Chase Briscoe and Braylon Fitzpatrick.

In the UMP Modified feature, national points leader Mike Harrison was able to win his second feature at LPS this year, coming on the heels of his win during the UMP Summer Nationals event earlier this summer.

Harrison held off Clint DeMoss, Brad Barrow, Richie Lex and Denny Schwartz in the top-five.

A second national points leader was in the house on Friday night as Jeremy Hines' 16th feature win of the year propelled him past Troy Clark in the standings. Clark finished 17th in the feature. Hines' win came ahead of Steve Hollars, Cullen Goodman, Kenny Carmichael Sr. and Chris Hillman.

The bomber feature went to Dustin Shoulders as he placed ahead of C.J. Bryan, Josh Foxworthy, Scott Tidwell and JR Watkins.
