WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (May 9) – Ryan Cook was the first feature winner Saturday at 34 Raceway, holding off Bill Roberts the last three times around the track to capture the rain-interrupted IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified feature from last week.
Tyler Glass got his first win of the season, taking the checkered flag by several car lengths in the evening’s scheduled Modified feature. Glass took the lead from Brandon Rothzen on lap seven and never looked back.
Seventeen IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars put on another show with John Oliver Jr. earning his first 34 Raceway win this season. Oliver took the lead from John Brockway on lap 14 in a contest that went caution free-up to lap 15.
With one lap to go, the final caution came out setting up a green, white, checkered finish. Jim Redmann took the lead on the final lap coming out of turn three but Oliver powered forward to get the lead back and took the win.
Dakota Simmons got his first-ever Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod victory. The top three cars crossed the finish line bumper to bumper with Simmons in front.
Ninety-seven cars filled the pit area for a night that had been questionable for racing earlier in the day. Rain throughout the late week and again Saturday made for muddy conditions but the 34 Raceway crew pulled off the trick of getting the track and pit area ready for a night of racing.
