WEST LIBERTY, Iowa (April 23) – The 2016 IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point sea­son got underway Saturday night at West Liberty Raceway. The track was extremely fast on a nice night for the opening night racing action.

Chad Holladay served notice to his fellow iWireless IMCA Late Model competitors that he is go­ing to be a contender for the West Liberty Raceway 2016 track championship. Holladay ad­vanced from his third row start to overtake race leader Rob Toland on lap 15 en route to the 25-lap feature win. Toland crossed the finish line in second ahead of Andy Eckrich.

Dakota Hayden found the high line to be very fast around the big half-mile. Hayden topped the very tough Performance Concepts IMCA Modified division with the 20-lap feature win. Larry Her­ring turned in a fine run in coming home second ahead of Kurt Kile.

Dalton Simonsen turned in a strong performance in coming from the fifth row to score an impres­sive win in the Weikert Iron & Metal IMCA Northern SportMod main event. Simonsen took the checkers ahead of Cody Harris and Colton Livezy.

Johnny Spaw came from deep in the pack to take the checkers first in the Kile Motorsports IMCA Stock Car main event. Spaw took the win ahead of David Brandies.

In a real thriller, Steve Struck won his third feature in as many nights at the West Liberty Race­way in 2016 in the US 6 Bodyworks IMCA Sport Compacts. Struck emerged from a three-car battle on the white flag lap to score the win ahead of Cody VanDusen and Jason KlerkDeRus.
