Three and four wide action in many of the features led to an exciting night of racing Sunday night at Raceway Park

Posted in News 0

The Z98 IMCA Sport Compacts kicked the evening off in style with fan favorite Don Tank jumping out to the lead in the opening laps. Tank held off repeated challenges for the top spot before losing the lead to Luke Jackson, and then dropping to third behind former champion Ramsey Meyer. Over the final laps, Meyer kept the pressure on Jackson, with Jackson coming out on top at the checkered flag over Meyer, Tank, and David Bates. Jackson also assumed the division point lead with the win.

The Golden Auto Sales IMCA Hobby Stocks ran three and four wide throughout the field with clean action through the entire feature. With five laps remaining, one of the few cautions slowed the field, and under that yellow flag, leader Aaron Shearn had to pit with a flat left rear tire. Shearn quickly rejoined the field dead last for the restart. David Miller assumed the lead on the restart, and held off repeated challenges from last weeks winner Tony Fetterman for the next two laps. Meanwhile, Shearn was charging through the pack and caught the leaders with two laps remaining, getting by Fetterman for second, but not able to catch Miller, who picked up his second win of the season, and the point lead. Behind Miller, Shearn, and Fetterman, Kyle Davis rounded out the top four.

The KCAU9 IMCA Sport Modified feature saw one third of the field drop out of the race before the finish with mechanical or tire troubles. Coming out on top for the night was Todd Boulware who beat Arie Schouten, Karl Brewer, and Kyle Welch to the checkered flag. The win moved Boulware atop a four way battle for the point lead.

Once again, the best race of the night came in the IMCA Stock Car division where four different drivers held the lead at one point or another, and three wide racing dominated the entire race. Coming out on top of the battle was Travis Barker who took control of the inside line over the final laps to top Mel Elsberry, Jason Ward, and Bo Lundquist. Ward’s third place finish gave him the points lead by one over Lundquist heading into next week.

The most dominating win of the night came in the Total Motors IMCA Modified feature where Jason Schneiders jumped out front from his front row starting spot and was never challenged all the way to the checkers. Behind Schneiders, Chad TenNapel won the battle as the best of the rest over Bob Moore and Jim Thies. Moore’s third place finish puts him solidly atop the points.

Action continues this Sunday with the Jim Johnson Memorial Race. Gates open at 5:00 with race action at 6:30.
