TOPEKA, Kan. (May 7) – Heartland Park Topeka saw its first repeat winner of the season on Sunday night and the feat was accomplished by the winningest driver in the IMCA Hobby Stock division.
Shannon Anderson is a six-time national champion and is closing in on 300 career wins in the class. He has made the long haul from Des Moines to Topeka for both races this season. He is quickly becoming a fan favorite and he is making it worth his while to attend each and every Sunday night.
Anderson started off eighth in the main event and it took just a few laps to get up alongside leader Alex Boyden. Anderson capitalized when Boyden began having mechanical issues and took away the top spot.
Tyler Hinrichs gave chase but Anderson, in just a short time, has become a master of Heartland Park Topeka’s Dirt Track. He sped off from the competition and picked up his second win of the season in as many races.
Steven Bowers Jr. was the IMCA Modified winner and Casey Woken collected the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car checkers. Brian Davidson topped the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod 15-lapper.
