Kasey Ussatis had a rather poetic evening at Jamestown Speedway.

One year after finishing second to Jamestown's Billy Carow in the bomber track championship standings, the driver from Nome, N.D., held off Carow to win Saturday's 15-lap pure stock feature, claiming the points title by seven markers over Marion's Cory Rodin.

Ussatis entered the night trailing Rodin by a single point. Rodin, gunning for a fourth Jamestown title in six seasons, finished last in his heat and fourth in the feature.

"I saw (Carow) underneath me a couple of times and I had flashbacks to last year," Ussatis said. "It's kinda nice I was able to hold him off this year."

It was Ussatis' third Jamestown win of the summer after producing five second-place finishes here a year ago. Ussatis also finished second in the standings to Carow last season in West Fargo, as Carow racked up nine total wins.

"I just picked up the track championship last week in Lisbon," Ussatis said. "I've had a lot of seconds and thirds. Getting over that hump, it's just that relief to finally get there after trying for a couple of years."

Ussatis jostled his way to the front after starting sixth, and went high to pull off a three-wide pass for the lead to complete Lap 10. Ussatis shot past leader Erik Busche and Carow out of Turn 4 and set sail.

Busche finished third. Rodin charged all the way to fourth after starting 14th in the 15-car field.

Ussatis said he plans to unveil a new ride at the 46th running of the Jamestown Speedway Stock Car Stampede next month. The Stampede begins Sept. 22.

"I'm in the process of getting into a street car," Ussatis explained. "I have one at home that I've kinda been working on all year. We'll probably break it out at the end here, the Stampede for sure."
