SALINA, Kan. (Aug. 21) –Jason Cleveland took home his first trophy of the season Friday at Salina Speedway.
It’s been a long road for the Budweiser IMCA Hobby Stock feature winner. Cleveland was the 2014 rookie of the year but missed the last half of the season due to an accident that left him hospitalized and recovering the rest of the year.
This season he quickly got faster and has become a factor for the win on many nights, leading until the last lap only a few events prior. This time he got it done, leading the way early and holding off a late surge from Aaron McBride.
Danny Morrison picked up a big feature win in the 1st Class Chassis IMCA Modified division. Beau Davis set the pace early and was on a rail until a caution grouped things up. On the restart Morrison slipped by and away and held off a late run by Brian Knoell for the checkers.
