EAGLE, Neb. (April 22) – Joey Danley made his move to the front late in the contest to win the season-opener for IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars Saturday at Eagle Raceway.

Danley slipped into second on the 17th circuit and caught Shayle Bade for the front spot two laps later.

A big crowd filled the stands and 178 teams of racers filled the pits. Twenty heats and five “B” features set the line-ups for the main events.

Clint Homan led from lap 15 to the finish of the Kaplan University IMCA Modified main event.

Fifty-two Hoosier Tire IMCA Northern SportMods were in the pits and Lance Borgman got the best of Josh Pfiefer in a late back-and-forth battle to the checkers. Jeff Ware capped a long run at the front of the Valen­tino’s IMCA Hobby Stock field with the win.

Dillon Richards was in, out and finally back in the lead for good in the Mountain Dew Kick Start Sport Com­pact feature.
