With most point leaders firmly in control of their divisions with only two IMCA point races remaining, Sunday night was all about the next generation of racers at Raceway Park.

The highlight of the evening was the “Kid’s Racecar Ride-A-Long Night” where every young fan in the grandstands had a chance to take a lap around the high banks in one of the cars competing that evening.

After the kids had their fun, the grownups had theirs, starting in the KISS 107 FM Sport Compact division. As has become the norm, Ramsey Meyer extended his point lead with another feature win. Most of the fun was behind the leader Meyer, where Don Tank pulled out the second place finish over Luke Jackson and Jeremy Boulware.

The Car Quest Hobby Stock feature was a chance for point leader Aaron Shearn to show why he’s the man on top as he sliced through the field from his tenth starting position to take the lead from Tony Fetterman to score the victory and extend his championship lead. Behind Shearn and Fetterman, Justin Frederick completed a fantastic run for third followed by Dave Riley.

It was Rusty Montange’s turn to stand atop the field in the MOPAR Sport Mod feature as he took control before the midway point and never looked back. Behind Montange, Darin Roepke held off point leader Karl Brewer and Kirk Beatty to finish out the top four.

Travis Barker has had a strong and consistent season that has put him second in the points standings behind Chris Mills, but Sunday he put it all together to dominate the Casey’s General Stores Stock Car field. With Barker out front on a rail, Jason Ward won the battle for second over Mel Elsberry and point leader Chris Mills.

The final feature of the evening in the Total Motors Modified division left the crowd going home happy as fan favorite Jim Cole took control at the halfway point of the main event and held on through a green, white, checkered finish for the victory. Jason Schneiders stayed near the front throughout the feature finishing second in front of point leader Ricky Stephan and Justin Sackett.

Action continues this Sunday as Raceway Park hosts the Tom Baker Memorial Race with extra money on the line for the Sport Mod division. Grandstands open at 5:00 pm with the first green flag dropping at 6:30.

With only three more nights remaining before IMCA Season Championships will be decided, racers were gunning for the checkered flag Sunday at Raceway Park.

The first feature of the evening was in the KISS 107 FM Sport Compact division where Luke Jackson made the pass on early leader Don Tank at the conclusion of the fourth lap en route to a feature victory. Tank held the second position until the final turn of the final lap, when Ramsey Meyer slipped by on the inside for the position.

Steven Pierce led every lap of the Car Quest Hobby Stock feature for his second win of the season. While Pierce was in front enjoying a clear view, the action behind him was wild from start to finish. In a final green, white, checkered finish, Pierce took the win followed by John Cain and Matt Baker.

MOPAR Sport Mod point leader Karl Brewer took his second win in a row after a race long battle with AJ Boulware. Brewer did not take the lead until two laps remaining as he slipped by Boulware mere feet before the scoring line. Caution flew one half lap later, leading to a green, white, checkered finish where Brewer would hold on for the win followed by Darin Roepke and Boulware.

Chris Mills extended his point lead atop the Casey’s General Stores Stock Car division with another feature win. Mills took the lead with six laps remaining in the feature from second place point man, Travis Barker. In a final green, white, checkered finish, Mills and Barker would hold onto their top two positions followed by Jason Ward.

The final feature of the evening saw Bob Moore make the pass on the outside of early leader Dan Loggins and go on for the win in the Total Motors Modified division. Moore, Jason Schneiders, and point leader Ricky Stephan broke away from the field in the closing laps and finished in that order.

Young Mason Leedom took the win in the Quick Pick Auto Parts Big Wheel Shootout after the top two racers tangled in the third turn. The win will put Mason in the championships on August 28.

This week will be a special one for the young fans as Raceway hosts its annual “Race Car Ride-a-Long Night” where young race fans get to ride around the high banks in one of the cars competing that evening.
