By Josh Reynolds

STUART, Iowa (Aug. 21) – Chris Pruitt dominated the Sunday main event for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars at Stuart Speedway.

Bryan Snell and Brandon Hill brought the Stocks out with Snell leading lap one before the caution flag flew. Pruitt took advantage of the ensuing restart and blasted out to the lead with Snell and Brandon Pruitt in second and third.

Brandon Pruitt made it past Snell on lap four as Chris Pruitt continued to lead. Both Pruitts left the field, and as the laps wound down Brandon began to inch closer to Chris. Brandon went low through turns one and two on lap 18, but that was as close as things got as Chris went on to take his first win at the track in two years.

Brandon finished second with Brian Blessington third, Trenton Jeanes fourth and Derrick Rohe fifth.

Josh Gilman held off Tim Ward following a late restart to win the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified main. Clint Luellen took charge on lap six and led Shawn Cooney across the stripe in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod headliner.

Buck Schafroth made what proved to be the winning pass on lap 11 of the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature. Curtis Miller was scored first on every circuit in the Mach-1 Sport Compact main.
