ESCANABA - After being plagued by rain for several weeks, U.P. International Raceway finally was granted a clear blue sky and warm, sunny weather.
The second annual Art Richer Memorial and Milwaukee Vintage Modifieds highighted the night.
In the modified feature, Dale Peterson took home the top spot. A scramble allowed Pat Richer, son of Art Richer, to race from the rear of the field to second place.
