Frostbuster point leaders earn $400, race of champions qualifying eligibility

VINTON, Iowa – Drivers with top point totals from April 1-4 IMCA Frostbuster specials each earned $400 shares of $1,000 point funds for IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.

In addition, Jason Wolla (Modified), Jay Schmidt (Stock Car) and Lucas Lamberies (Northern SportMod) become eligible to qualify for their respective race of champions at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s in September.

Austin Luellen was already eligible to qualify for the Hobby Stock RoC, having won that race last year.

Nearly 350 different drivers from a dozen states and Canada competed at Frostbusters held at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Benton County Speedway in Vinton, Marshalltown Speedway and Boone Speedway.

Car counts topped 200 for the Friday event at Marshalltown and again Saturday at Boone.

Top drivers in Frostbuster point standings will receive jackets and plaques during the national IMCA awards banquet in November. Each of the four tracks contributed equal shares to provide $4,000 in point fund money.

Checks for $300, $200 and $100 go to second, third and fourth place drivers in standings for each division.

His feature win at Marshalltown gave Todd Shute the tie-breaker over Hunter Marriott for second in the Modified standings. Josh Most was fourth.

Canadian Brendon LaBatte was second in the Stock Car points. Damon Murty was third and Bret Koehler fourth.

Clint Luellen, Jenae Gustin and Tracy Wassenberg were 2-3-4 in the Northern SportMod standings behind Lamberies.

Completing the Hobby Stock top four were Eric Stanton, Jeremy Auten and, by virtue of a higher feature finish, Jamie Songer. Songer and Dave Schmidt had finished with the same point total.

In all, 100 Modified, 97 Northern SportMod, 76 Stock Car and 73 Hobby Stock drivers competed over the course of Frostbuster Week.
