Chase, Ind.-Daugherty Speedway hosted its Championship Night on Saturday with Kyle Herbert winning the 20-lap feature race for DIRTcar UMP Modified stock car competitors.
 
Herbert, from Greensburg, wheeled his Herbert-Maurice Racing No. 21 to the victory, coming from his front row, inside, starting position in the 15-car field.  Chasing Herbert was Randy Lines, who was experiencing apparent electrical problems as his car continued to ''pop and bang'' throughout the race as he chased Herbert to the checkered flag. Rounding out the top six were Matt Mitchell, Chip Risner, the speedway's 2016 modified track champion - Mark Grosvenor, and Justin Gregory.
 
Putting icing on his division championship cake, Jerrad Krick won the 20-lap UMP Stock Cars feature race.  The Earl Park speedster bested Ian Keller and Scott Tidwell.  Another division champion, Mike Staggs captured the 20-lap UMP Pro Late Models main event.  The Marshall resident defeated Phil Line and Cody Fultz.
 
Preston Oberle won the 15-lap Pure Street feature race, finishing ahead of David Hurst and Steven Nolen.  Zach Drake was crowned the track's division titlist.  Aaron Huber was the winner of the 15-lap main event for Sport Compact (four-cylinder) racers.  Dean Pigg finished second with John Lamson taking third.  Sport Compact champion, Jacob Wilkinson was involved in an accident during the feature and did not finish.
