March 28th, 2015 - Vogel Travels to Humboldt for King of America Modified Nationals
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.

March 14th, 2015 - Billy Vogel Enters Spring Nationals at Beatrice Speedway
Billy Vogel made the trip to Beatrice Speedway (Beatrice, Nebraska) over the weekend for the IMCA Spring Nationals.

A stout field of seventy IMCA Open Wheel Modifieds registered for battle on Friday night, all chasing the $2,000 top prize. Vogel drew the second starting spot for his heat race but slipped backwards, leaving him short of locking into the feature. As a result he would have to run a b-main. Unfortunately, Billy's night ended early when he collided with another competitor that slowed abruptly in front of him.

Saturday night's Spring Nationals finale also boosted a $2,000 winner's check to competitors. Billy settled to a seventh place finish in his heat race after starting fifth, sending him to a b-main. Vogel started ninth in the b-main, and was running fifth when terminal issues on his EZ Open Motorsports #4 entry forced him to retire from the balance of the program.

Fifty-five entries were on hand for Friday night's event as the winner's check increased to $3,000.
