Wolfgram becomes first-time Modified winner at Boone

BOONE, Iowa (July 23) – Al Wolfgram grabbed his first career win in the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified division Saturday at Boone Speedway.

Veteran Robert Avery held the lead on lap one but by lap two, it was Wolfgram snatching it away.  He soon had Jimmy Gustin coming at him on the top side fast and furiously.

After several laps of side-by-side racing, Gustin momentarily took the top spot, only to have Wolfgram retake the lead by the time the next lap was scored.

The chase continued with Gustin giving it his all in the attempt to get around the leader.  Hitting a rut in corner one with just a couple of laps remaining, sent Gustin backwards and gave Wolfgram breathing room on his road to the checkers.

Point leader Mike Van Genderen came from the 12th starting spot and worked his way to a se­cond-place finish. Chris Webb finished in third, fourth was Tony Cox, and Russ Dickerson came from 10th to round out the top five.

Wayne Gifford won by a comfortable margin in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature. Jake McBirnie topped the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main event and Chad LeGere won again in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.
