SEYMOUR, Wis. (Aug. 30) – Lance Arneson won his first Budweiser IMCA Modified feature at Seymour Speedway since June 12 of 2011 Sunday night.
Arneson worked from the second row and into the lead after the opening lap followed by Trevor Spaulding, Jerry Wilinski, Chad Guyette, Rob Charapata and Konnor Wilinski. A spin brought out the only caution of the race on lap 2, and Arneson continued to set the pace after the restart.
Jerry Wilinski moved into the runner-up spot and point leader Eric Scribner followed into third. On lap 5, Scribner took over the second spot with Eric Arneson and Chad Bartel moving forward.
Scribner closed in on the leader but after a couple laps, Arneson settled into a solid pattern on the outside, Scribner did the same on the inside and the margins stayed pretty much unchanged to the finish. Bartel ran out of laps to mount a serious challenge and finished third.
Travis Van Straten was finally able to inch ahead and finally into sole procession of the lead on lap 16 of the Coors Light IMCA Stock Car feature and drove off to collect his eighth local feature win and 31st for the season.
Chas Van Ooyen came home second with Kyle Frederick third.
Jeremy Cota took over the top spot on lap 11, then sped off and collected his fourth straight feature win and eighth local O’Reilly Auto Parts IMCA Northern SportMod victory of the season.
Travis Arenz worked by on the final lap to take second from Russell Franks, who completed his strongest finish in third.
