By Jeremy Fox

OSKALOOSA, Iowa (June 15) – Austin Paul visited victory lane for the first time this season at Southern Iowa Speedway, following Wednesday’s KBOE Radio IMCA Northern SportMod main event.

Paul held off Matthew VanGelder early and later denied the hard-charging Curtis VanDerWal to take his first local checkers since last August. VanDerWal was second ahead of Carter VanDenBerg, VanGelder and Jason McDaniel.

In the Musco Lighting IMCA Modified feature, Scott Dickey appeared to be heading to the win as he led the first 13 laps but points leader Colt Mather grabbed the top spot away on lap 14 and went on to pick up the win ahead of Dickey, Zack Vander Beek, North Carolina’s Kyle Strickler and California’s Cody Laney.

Cayden Carter cruised to his seventh straight Budweiser IMCA Sunoco Stock Car win. Danny Thrasher repeated in the Pepsi Cola IMCA Hobby Stocks and Shane Evans paced the Mach-1 Sport Compacts for his first SIS victory since opening night.
