HAYS, Kan. (April 11) – After four runner-up finishes already in 2015, Jason Rogers finally made it to victory lane in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car division but had to hold off Chad Sterling to do it on opening night at RPM Speedway.

Sterling led the opening lap before Rogers took the lead on lap two.  Rogers was able to hold on to the front spot with Sterling trying high and low to make a pass. As the lead duo came out of turn four to the checkers, Sterling made a charge but came up half a car length short as Rogers held on.

Shaylon Holloway finished third.

More than 100 race teams were on hand for the Saturday show at Hays.

Cody Gearhart led all 20 laps in the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified feature and finished a straightaway ahead of Joe Cleveland.

Defending track champion Tyler Frye of Belleville started the points season with a trip to victory lane in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main event. He passed lap one leader Nate Ginest on the second circuit and never looked back.

Garrett Hager led all 20 laps to win the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature. Art Herzog of Hays was another defending track champion who won the main event in his respective division, the Mach-1 Sport Compacts.
