BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 6) – After being challenged early for the lead, Trevor Holm ran away with the Tuesday qualifying feature for IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks at Boone Speedway.
As a result, he’ll start on the front of the outside row in Saturday’s IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals main event.
Holm dueled with Jason Kohl, who pulled into the infield, then returned and restarted at the back of the field.
Second-running Justin Luinenburg retired on lap 18 and two-time and defending champion Jason Wilkinson exited from a transfer spot and followed him to the pits on the next circuit.
Solomon Bennett, Matt White, Andrew Bertsch, Jeff Ware, TeJay Mielke, Andrew Borchardt and Bill Bonnett followed Holm across the finish line and will line up in that order behind him on Saturday.
Holm is in the big show for the second time and Bonnett counts the 1998 championship among his nine previous Super Nationals appearances; the other six drivers start their first Saturday show. Justin Wacha was disqualified in post-race tech.
Last-chance qualifying on Wednesday adds the last six Hobbies to the main event field.
