BOONE, Iowa (May 14) – After suffering mechanical issues in last week’s IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature, Jay Schmidt got back on track and snapped up the feature win Saturday at Boone Speedway.
Schmidt slid under Michael Murphy out of turn four to take the lead at lap six and never looked back from there on his way to the checkers. Terry Pruitt finished second and Rod Richards came from 11th starting to finish third.
Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified driver Mike Van Genderen started ninth and ran down pole sitter Joel Bushore in the 20-lap main event, pursuing him relentlessly from lap six, and finally making the pass with a handful of laps remaining.
Those final laps saw Van Genderen pull away and take the comfortable win. Bushore held on to second place. Third went to Tony Cox.
Cody Gustoff led the 12-lap IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature from start to finish in securing his first visit to the winner’s circle this season. John Watson challenged Gustoff the entire race but had to settle for the runner-up spot. Third went to Daniel Wauters, who started 12th.
It was a shootout between Brandon Williams and Jake McBirnie in the 18-lap Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main event. The two swapped leads several times before McBirnie gained the final lead in the closing moments to seal the win.
Williams had to settle for second and Cory Rose was third.
