WEST LIBERTY, Iowa (Aug. 27) – West Liberty Raceway hosted season championship racing on Saturday night with the iWireless IMCA Late Model division headlining the program.
The 25-lap main event saw Chad Holladay advance from his fourth row start and sail on to the victory in the caution-free feature. The win for Holliday put an exclamation point on his 2016 Late Model track championship. Andy Eckrich ran a strong race in taking second ahead of Jeremiah Hurst.
The Performance Concepts IMCA Modifieds closed out the regular season with Brad Dubil scoring his second win in the last month in the very tough class. Dubil shot out front early and led the caution-free race flag to flag. The racing behind Dubil was very intense as the season point title was up for grabs. Chris Zogg finished one position behind his nearest competition for the point title, Jerry Luloff. Zogg won the point title. Matt Fulton took second ahead of Luloff and Zogg.
Tim Plummer broke out of the pack of race lead contenders in the Weikert Iron & Metal IMCA Northern SportMod season championship race and went on to record the feature win. Plummer scored a comfortable win ahead of 2016 track champion Dalton Simonsen.
Jason KlerkDerus fought his way to the front and took the lead late in the season championship race in the US 6 Bodyworks IMCA Sport Compact class. KlerkDerus secured his second consecutive West Liberty Raceway track title with the win. Brendon Schultheis ran second ahead of Brad O’Brien.
