ARLINGTON, Minn. (Aug. 27) – Elijah Zevenbergen led from start to finish to pick up the $1,000 winner’s check at Arlington Raceway’s Joe Voss Memorial for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars Saturday night.
Zevenbergen had strong challenges, first from Chad Schroeder and then from Derek Green.
Green suffered a flat tire and went into the work area on the red flag that waved after Adam Revier got too high on the backstretch, went over the cushion lost control barrel rolled several times down the track.
Revier was OK but his car was damaged. After that restart, the race was all Zevenbergen. Matt Speckman worked behind him but had to settle for second ahead of Dean Cornelius.
Green made his way back up to fourth. Wisconsin traveler Shawn Wagner finished fifth, earning the hard charger bonus plus a new front bumper by passing 12 cars.
The Stock Cars also raced a “tough guy” challenge in memory of Voss with the top 10 cars from the feature racing 10 laps. The car scored last on each lap had to leave the track. The winner was Green of Granada, who had started seventh. He picked up $500 from Pro Haulers for the win.
Team Porter Corner celebrated a pair of wins as father Chad and daughter Kyren won the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified and Mach-1 Sport Compact features.
Michael Stien motored to the IMCA EMI RaceSaver Sprint Car checkers and Eric Bassett repeated as the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod winner. Cory Probst collected another IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock win.
