EAGLE, Neb. (Aug. 16) – Chevy Hadan motored to his first Kaplan University IMCA Modified victory of the season at Eagle Raceway on Saturday.
He passed Jared Hoefelman for the lead with three laps left, then beat Hoefelman and Mike Densberger to the checkers.
“I usually run the bottom. I was trying to be patient and stay there, but when I saw Mike I knew I had to do something else,” he said. “The bottom wasn’t working any more, so I headed up top and moved to the front.”
Adam Guillon became a first-time Mud In America Racesaver IMCA Sprint Car feature winner.
“I got to thinking before the race started, so I started searching for something special just the right spot to run,” he said. “I tried running high into one on a caution but it was rough. So, the next time I went above the cushion and found my spot. Then, when I got the lead I kind of overdrove the car a little.
“So I calmed myself down,” he continued. “I knew if I just hit my marks that I’d be good.”
Benji Legg took over the lead with just four laps left to gain his seventh NAPA IMCA Northern SportMod feature win this season at Eagle.
John Can also made his move to the front with four circuits to go in topping the Valentino’s IMCA Hobby Stock main.
Larry Cronin, Matt Moyer and Cole Krichau ran 1-2-3 in the Sam’s Club IMCA Sport Compact headliner.
