BRITT, Iowa (July 27) – No rally was needed for Elijah Zevenbergen to repeat as the winner of Hancock County Speedway’s Hobo 100 IMCA Sunoco Stock Car special.

Zevenbergen had raced his way back to the front with five laps to go in the 2017 race.

He started 10th, had the lead just five circuits in and stayed in front to the finish Friday night in winning the event a second straight year and taking home another $4,000 check.

“The car was set up perfect. I could drive in the corners deeper than anyone else,” he said. “I just went to the high side and picked ‘em off.”

Zevenbergen built up a big lead as the race stayed green, then outran 14th starting Jeff Mueller following a caution late in the 25-lapper.

Randy Brands, Brandon Czarapata and Cayden Carter rounded out the top five.

Fifty Stock Cars battled at Britt.

Carter won the IMCA Modified feature, earning $2,000 and a Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational bal­lot nod.
