OSHKOSH, Wis. (June 19) – Marcus Yarie made his first visit to victory lane this season, follow­ing Friday’s Automotive Supply Company IMCA Modified main event at Oshkosh SpeedZone Race­way.

Once to the front, Yarie ran a mistake-free race while second-running Steve Schneider looked high and low for a way around.

The Total Power Sales IMCA Stock Cars ran caution-free and John Heinz was in front when the checkers flew.

Point leader Travis Van Straten was right behind in second. Greg Gutt, making a visit to his home state, had an impressive run to third. Jerry Winkler was fourth and Dion Wahl had his best run of the season, finishing fifth.

Colten Van Hierden made his machine stick and took over the lead on lap 16 of the Karl Chevro­let Northern SportMod main. He pulled away over the final four circuits and recorded his third lo­cal feature win of the season. Brock Saunders took the runner-up finish with Jeff Schmuhl right behind.
