|The EZ Open Motorsports team traveled to Humboldt Speedway (Humboldt, Kansas) for the annual King of America Modified Nationals, sanctioned by the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS).
Eighty-two competitors registered for battle, all chasing the $10,000 top prize. The format featured double heat races on Thursday and Friday with drivers accumulating points toward Saturday night's finale.
Vogel struggled with the setup on his #4 EZ Open Garage Door/Durham Race Engines/LG21 entry, only managing a twelfth place finish in the first heat race on Thursday evening. Round #2 found him starting twelfth and finishing eleventh.
When action resumed on Friday night, Billy continued to battle the setup, slipping backwards to an eleventh place finish after starting second in Round #3. The final round of heat race action saw Vogel start fouth before settling to a tenth place finish. He ended the night 81st in the final point standings.
Billy's struggles in preliminary action pinned him deep in a last-chance race on Saturday evening. Vogel advanced seven positions to a thirteenth place finish in the last-chance event, which unfortunately left him short of lock into the 100-lap finale, ending his night early.
