OSKALOOSA, Iowa (May 18) – Kelly Shryock was the driver in victory lane following the green, white, checkered finish that brought Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified main event to its conclusion Wednesday at Southern Iowa Speedway.
Jason Hall grabbed the initial lead in the 20-lapper ahead of Dennis LaVeine. Josh Foster made it a three-car battle for the top spot before causing a seventh circuit caution.
Hall had LaVeine and Shryock right behind him on the ensuing restart. Shryock took second from LaVeine and then passed Hall for the lead on lap nine. Cayden Carter worked his way into the runner-up spot at midway.
Shryock and Carter were running a close 1-2 before the caution that came out just after the completion of lap 18 that forced the green, white, checkered finish.
Shryock held off Carter to take the win. Colt Mather edged Zack Vander Beek out for third and LaVeine came home fifth.
Other winners were Carter in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Dustin Griffiths in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Colton Livezey in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Bill Whalen in the Mach-1 Sport Compacts.
