Mt. Vernon Raceway is a quarter-mile dirt oval located on the west side of Mount Vernon, Illinois, it just reopened this season, having been shut down for the past two years. For Chad Sellars, owner and driver for RCS Motorsports Inc., the reopening was a very good thing. And the decision to race that evening came at the last minute, as the team's home track had an open date because of the July 4th weekend.
Any bad luck that the RCS Motorsports team has experienced in the past was exorcised at the tracks recent reopening when Chad Sellars handily took the feature win.

"Our recent win at Mt. Vernon was very satisfying, because we have had a lot of bad luck happen to us at that race track in the past," explained Sellars the Breese, Illinois racer.

"Winning the modified feature, which was the last race of the evening, was special on this particular night. It resulted in all of the track lights going out while we were sitting in victory lane, and we got to enjoy a large fireworks display over the raceway."

Right before the start of racing that evening Sellars' crew chief Rick Seaton declared, "This place owes us - let's get us a feature win." Sellars listened, going on to lead every lap of their heat race and then every lap of the feature. The RCS Motorsports Inc. team currently sits second in points at Highland Speedway in Highland, Illinois.

The RCS Motorsports team consists of Rick Seaton Crew Chief, Chad Tebbe, Dave Schaaf, Richard Sellers, Dan Blumenstein, and John Voss. They have been a contending modified race team for over ten years. The team competes under the Dirt Motorsports Sanctioning Body and UMP Rules.

"Our Sponsors include K&N Engineering, Aviston Lumber Company, Equity Fifty-Five Real Estate, QA1 Shocks and Landrum Performance Springs," say Sellars. "We only use K&N Filters on our modified. Specifically we use K&N air filters, outerwears, and oil filters.

"Our team feels very confident about the remainder of the 2010 season," says Sellars. "Two weeks ago we discovered that our electronic scales were not weighing accurately, they have been giving us false readings about the set-up on the racecar. We purchased a new set of scales before the feature win at Mt. Vernon, and feel very good about our chances for the balance of the season now."
