BOONE, Iowa (May 13) – Eric Elliott raced all the way from the back of the Saturday night field to win the IMCA Modified main event at Boone Speedway.

Most recently a winner at Iowa’s Action Track in June of 2015 – and Friday night at Marshalltown Speedway – Elliott restarted at the back following a caution early in the 20-lapper, fought his way back through pack and gained the lead with a couple of laps remaining before taking the checkers by a comfortable margin.

Josh Truman started 12th and had a great run to finish as runner-up. Third went to Josh Gilman, who came from 16th starting, fourth was 11th place starter and defending track champion Mike Van Genderen, and Al Wolfgram completed the top five.

Michael Houseman was the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car winner and Trent Murphy topped the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature. Three-time track champion Eric Stanton was first to the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock checkers.

The Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods put on another flag-to-flag race. The 18-lap main event was won by an elated Mike Munson.

Munson held off Chad Ryerson to take the checkers for his first Northern SportMod win at Boone.
