STUART, Iowa (May 12) – Josh Gilman was dialed in Friday night and won the IMCA Modified feature at Stuart Speedway.

Matt Webb and Gilman drew front row stars. Gilman shot out to the early lead with Webb and Jeff James battling for second. Clint Luellen and Todd VanEaton joined the fray on lap six.

By the time things shook out it was Luellen in second, but Gilman was in another zip code and went on to take the win. Luellen finished second with VanEaton third.

First-time winners were Brandon Cox in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and John Watson in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods.

David Smith accomplished a career-first, hitting the front wall and getting upside down after winning the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature. Curtis Miller took the Mach-1 Sport Compact checkers.
