OSKALOOSA, Iowa (June 3) – Carter VanDenBerg picked up the Musco Lighting IMCA Modified feature win Wednesday at Southern Iowa Speedway.
Scott Dickey held VanDenBerg at bay until the fifth circuit. Andrew Schroeder took away the runner-up spot before the checkers came out.
The hometown track victory was the first for VanDenBerg, who’d won previously at Lee County Speedway.
Fans who like frequent lead changes got their money’s worth as they saw five of them in the Pepsi Cola IMCA Hobby Stock main event.
Craig Brown and Mike Kincaid race side-by-side the final lap and it was Kincaid winning his first at Osky by mere inches at the line. Brown finished a very close second and Aaron Martin was third.
Zack VanderBeek started sixth and raced to his third local Budweiser IMCA Stock Car win of the season. Twelfth starting Cayden Carter was second and 17th starting Damon Murty was third.
Jason McDaniel topped a KBOE Radio IMCA Northern SportMod main event slowed by just a single yellow. Curtis VanDerWal continued his impressive season in second and Brett Lowry rook third.
Jon Girdley inherited the pole in the Mach-1 Sport Compacts feature after William Michel was unable to make the call. Girdley held off several early challenges from eventual runner-up John Whalen in taking the win. Bill Whalen was third.
