QUINCY, Ill. (May 4) – John Oliver Jr., Bobby Anders Jr. and Austen Becerra all picked up feature event wins in the Casey’s General Stores Racing Series at Quincy Raceways on Sunday.

The Powder Coat Plus IMCA Stock Cars were racing for $500 to Win with Oliver taking home the big check. Oliver battled with Jim Lynch the entire 25 laps and held on to take the win over Lynch in second and Abe Huls in third.

Anders held off a hard-charging Tony Dunker to score the feature event win in the Summy Tire and Auto Center IMCA Northern SportMod main event. Anders grabbed the lead from Tanner Klingele on the seventh lap and kept Dunker at bay over the last few laps to score the feature event win.

Becerra continued his hot streak in the Mach-1 Sport Compact division as he survived the war with Pat Dunker in the feature event.

Becerra and Dunker traded paint over the final laps as both took turns leading but Becerra managed to take the lead when it counted when the checkered flag fell. Dunker settled for the second spot followed by Bryce Baker.
