Regular season kicks off at RPM 

By Mike Hughes

HAYS, Kan. (April 9) – After a very successful Sunflower Classic two weeks ago, the regular points season got underway at RPM Speedway in Hays, KS, Saturday evening, April 9.

The NAPA Auto Parts/Gib’s Auto Supply IMCA Modified feature had the wildest finish of the night.  Danny Morrison led the opening lap before Dylan Sherfick took the lead. Sherfick appeared to have the race well in hand until a caution on the final lap for a spinning car set up a one-lap shootout to the finish.

Sherfick led the field back to green, trailed by Morrison and Tyler Frye. As the field headed into turn two on the final lap, Frye shot around Morrison for second, dove under Sherfick in turns three and four and made it stick, then held on to the checkers by a car length.

Morrison was third, followed by Clay Money and Steven Bowers Jr.

Chad Sterling was the Advantage Glass Plus IMCA Stock Car winner. Daniel Gottschalk was the third and final leader in the Golden B Hydra Drilling IMCA Northern Sport Mod main event.

The 20-lap Golden Plains Trucking IMCA Hobby Stock feature was close from green to checkered and ended with Eric Cross in victory lane. Jakob Schwein topped the Cutting Edge Collision IMCA Sport Compact feature.
