SHAWANO, Wis. (June 14) – Lance Arneson proved up to the challenge in winning the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified Saturday at Shawano Speedway.
Craig Bartz was back on the prowl early on, leading the first 12 laps. Bartz slipped just high enough the next time around to allow Lance Arneson and Marcus Yarie to slip past and into the top two spots.
Yarie continued to pressure Arneson as the race ran on but Arneson was up to the challenge and scored the win.
In the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature, Tracy Wassenberg led the final 19 laps after taking the lead from Tristin Peebles on the way to his third win of the year. Jordan Bartz pursued Wassenberg the entire race, but could not muster a pass.
The IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature saw Travis VanStraten in control from the fifth lap on. Mike Schmidt passed Vern Stedjee to finish second.
The win by VanStraten ended Kyle Frederick’s undefeated streak to start the season.
