Two additional divisions joined the Father’s Day Special with Bob Werkmeister taking the win in the Good Ole’ Time Racing Association nostalgia coupes. Chasing Werkmeister to the line were Darrell Doerr, and Darrin Adamy.

A big field of winged sprint cars from the Nebraska Sprint Series hit the track for a twenty lap feature to wrap up the evening. Kaleb Johnson started on the pole and led every lap of the main event. Behind Johnson, Adam Guillion snagged second in the final three lap shootout over Jack Dover and Dusty Ballenger.

In IMCA action, Brody Spreng took his first win of the year in the Z98 Sport Compacts followed by Jake Newsome and David Bates, while point leader Luke Jackson crossed the line back in sixth.

The top two drivers in the Golden Auto Sales Hobby Stocks finished outside the top five with point leader Tony Fetterman in eighth, one spot behind his closest pursuer David Miller, who only finished in seventh. At the front of the pack, Craig Clift scored his second straight victory followed by Aaron Shearn, Andy Hoffman, and Jake McClure.

The top two drivers in the KCAU9 Sport Mod division did not even break the top ten on Sunday night. Point leader Arie Schouten and runner up Todd Boulware tangled early in the feature, knocking Boulware out with damage and leaving Schouten with an ill handling car. After two more spins leading to cautions, Schouten was sent to the pits. This left the door wide open for Karl Brewer who blazed to the feature win followed by Darin Roepke and new point leader Rusty Montange.

Same story in the Casey’s General Stores Stock Cars, where point leader Bo Lundquist finished seventh in the feature, giving up his point lead in the process. The feature victory went to Travis Barker, his third in a row. Finishing second and taking over the point lead was Jason Ward. Greg Taylor finished third followed by Todd Gereau.

Ricky Stephan took the win in the Total Motors Modified feature, vaulting him into a tie for the division point lead with Bob Moore who could only muster a ninth place finish, Chris Mills completed a strong race to take the runner up spot followed by Sean Barragan and Jason Schneiders.

The Quick Pick Auto Parts Big Wheel Shootout went to young Logan Weitzel, putting him into the championships later this season.

IMCA racing action continues this Sunday with gates opening at 5:00 and the first green flag dropping at 6:30.

Five drivers were officially crowned IMCA track champions Sunday at Raceway Park. With championships in all divisions virtually wrapped up before the drivers checked in the back gate, it was all about taking home the championship night trophy. Champions in three of the divisions managed to do just that.

Ramsey Meyer took the lead on the second lap of the KISS 107 FM Sport Compact division and never looked back en route to another feature win. Chasing Ramsey to the checkered flag were Tom Meyer, Phillip McKee, and Jeremy Boulware.

Car Quest Hobby Stock champion Aaron Shearn took his second win in a row to wrap up his track championship in a feature that had seven cautions in the first three laps and three attempts at a green, white, checkered finish just past the scheduled halfway distance, Shearn held the only safe position being in front of the field. Ryan Leedom wrapped up a good season with a second place finish in front of Tony Fetterman and Dave Riley.

It was also two wins in a row to wrap up the season for the MOPAR Sport Mod champion Karl Brewer. Brewer snagged the lead from Justin Voeltz on a restart four laps into the feature and paced the field to the checkered flag. Rusty Montagne finished in the runner up spot followed by Kirk Beatty and Dave Kennedy.

The Casey’s General Stores Stock Car feature saw nearly every car in the division involved in accidents before the checkered flag. The action started at the drop of the green flag when pole sitter Glenn Jones spun in the first turn collecting three of the top six cars. The crash left Paul Wenzlaff in the lead before he was involved in a crash in turn two of the second lap that collected six more cars. After another multi-car incident on the fourth lap, Aaron Cain moved into the lead spot and held on all the way to the checkered flag for the win. Chasing Cain, but missing the complete right side body work of his car, was Jason Ward followed by Greg Taylor and division champion Chris Mills.

In comparison, the Total Motors Modified feature was a fairly calm affair with Jay Noteboom taking the lead from his front row position on the opening lap and holding a comfortable ten car length lead all the way to the checkered flag. Bob Moore chased Noteboom through much of the feature finishing second in front of Chris Abelson and Sean Barragan, while Ricky Stephan left with the season points championship.

Twelve young racers also hit the track in the Quick Pick Auto Parts Big Wheel Racing Series championships. After narrowing the field to six drivers, young Jasen Boulware roared to the feature win and took home the six foot tall championship trophy, nearly double his size.

Raceway Park’s season wraps up this Sunday with the Winnavegas Casino Resort South Dakota Fall Nationals, with extra money on the line in all five divisions. Grandstands open at 5:00 pm with the first green flag dropping at 6:30.

Drivers and fans enjoyed a great night of racing Sunday as Raceway Park hosted the Tom Baker Memorial Race. The highlighted division of the evening was the MOPAR IMCA Sport Modified division. Kyle Welch jumped out to the early lead only to be overtaken on the seventh lap by point leader Karl Brewer. The race’s first caution did not come out until the fourteenth of twenty laps were completed. On the restart, the cars of Kirk Beatty and Darin Roepke got together between the first and second turns leading to a second attempt to finish the race. Once the green flag flew, it was Brewer all the way to the checkered flag followed by Rusty Montange, Cameron Meyer, and Kyle Welch.

The Total Motors IMCA Modified division ran a fast, clean, green to checkers feature. Dan Loggins led the opening laps until being overtaken three laps in by Bob Moore. Moore then set sail with Jim Cole on his tail while Chris Abelson worked his way through the field to third at the halfway point. Through the final laps, Moore kept control over Cole to take the win, while Abelson held off point leader Ricky Stephan for third place at the checkers.

The Casey’s General Stores IMCA Stock Cars had a classic battle through most of the feature between Aaron Cain and Jason Ward, with the lead traded four times in an eight lap period. Ward finally took control of the top spot with four laps remaining to take the feature win while Todd Gereau got past Cain for the runner up spot. Behind the top trio, Nick Lakes rounded out the top four.

Point leader Aaron Shearn picked up his second win in a row in the Car Quest IMCA Hobby Stock division. Shearn slipped past race long leader Brody Spreng with two laps remaining and held off a hard charging Dave Riley at the checkers. Spreng finished in the third position followed by Andy Hoffman.

The KISS 107 FM IMCA Sport Compact feature saw another clean green to checkered feature. Jake Newsom took the lead on the opening lap and never looked back en route to the feature victory followed by Luke Jackson, point leader Ramsey Meyer and Tyler Thompson.

Also joining the program Sunday was the Mod-Lites Series, where David Rafferty took the win followed by Brian Zehm, Rich Enevoldson, and Doug Pollock.
Sunday also saw the final two entrants for the Quick Pick Auto Parts Big Wheel Shootout Championship decided when Hailey Woodle and Alexis Parrish took wins.
