Five drivers raced to victory lane while many others let out pent up aggression in Sunday IMCA racing action at Raceway Park.
In the KISS 107.1 FM Sport Compact division Louis Maine led the early laps before surrendering the top spot to Luke Jackson. Jackson held control at the front of the field until point leader Ramsey Meyer slipped past with five laps remaining. From that point on, it became a video game wreck-fest behind the leader, with no fewer than five drivers given the black flag for rough driving. As the field came to the white flag, a final crash on the front stretch brought an end to the race, with Ramsey Meyer taking the win followed by his closest point rival Don Tank. Luke Jackson and Andrew Harris rounded out the top four.
The Car Quest Hobby Stock feature also had its rough moments in the early going, but in the end it was David Miller taking the checkered flag over Craig Clift. Point leader Aaron Shearn completed a frantic run from the rear of the field to finish third followed by Jon Androy.
Point leader Karl Brewer took the win in the MOPAR Sport Mod feature, extending that lead over Rusty Montange, who finished third in the feature behind Darin Roepke. Kaleb Kennedy rounded out the top four.
Jason Ward took his first checkered flag of the season in the Casey’s General Stores Stock Car feature. Ward took the lead on lap three and held off point leader Chris Mills for the second half of the race, with Mills chasing the outside line while Ward stayed glued to the inside. Aaron Cain had a strong run for third followed by Zach Ankrum in his best performance of the season.
The twenty lap Total Motors Modified feature was the highlight of the evening with Jim Cole taking the win. Cole went past early leader Bob Moore on the sixth lap, but the excitement started when point leader Ricky Stephan moved into second with ten laps remaining. Stephan hounded Cole with both fighting for inside position entering the turns. Cole never gave up that inside line en route to the victory followed closely by Stephan, with Bob Moore and Jason Schneiders rounding out the top four.
Young Phillip Monroe smoked the competition in the Quick Pick Auto Parts Big Wheel Shootout earning himself a spot in the championships later this season.
Action continues this Sunday with the first green flag flying at 6:30. Gates open at 5:00.
