Van Genderen victorious at Boone

BOONE, Iowa (April 23) – It was night number two of IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly points racing at Boone Speedway on Saturday. Close racing, and exciting finishes gave the fans their money’s worth.

In the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified division, Mike Van Genderen took the win from his eighth place starting position.  He ran down Josh Truman after several laps of tormenting him high and then low, and finally taking command at lap 10. Truman kept Van Genderen within striking distance but to no avail and had to settle for the runner-up spot.

Russ Dickerson charged through the field from starting 10th to take third place. Veteran Denny Pittman was fourth and Jimmy Gustin finished fifth from starting 12th.

The IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature win went to Wayne Gifford. Gifford had the lead at lap two, and never relinquished it the rest of the way.  Jay Schmidt had him in his sights for most of the 18-lap event but was never able to make the pass, and had to be content with second.

Donavon Smith, who last week got his 100th career win, started 12th and finished in third place.  Fourth went to Tyler Pickett, who barely beat out Trent Murphy, in fifth, at the finish line.

Brandon Williams took home the win in the 18-lap Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main event. He had to run down pole sitter Thor Anderson in doing so. Anderson led the field until the persistent challenges of Williams paid off at lap 15.

Tenth place starter Randy Roberts attempted a challenge but fell short for a runner-up finish. Third went to early leader Anderson, 11th place starter Jake McBirnie was fourth and Johnathon Logue finished fifth from his 12th place starting position.

Solomon Bennett led the 12-lap IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature from start to finish.  He was chased the entire distance by John Watson, who finished second.  Third place went to Dustin Lynch, Eric Stanton started 10th and finished fourth, and Dustin Graham took fifth.
