EAGLE, Neb. (Aug. 4) – Keith Dragoo’s first IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car win came Saturday night at Ea­gle Raceway.

Clint Benson had passed Dragoo with just three laps left, but Dragoo returned the favor returned the favor on the last circuit to win a nail biter.

“We’re the team who runs on used everything. We prove that it doesn’t take the best of everything to win a race,” he said. “We won this race on a set of used tires and a shock package from Jason Martin. One of his guys came over after the race and said, ‘Those seriously aren’t the tires that we gave you, are they?’ and I told him they sure were.’”

Already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot, Jordan Grabouski earned $1,000 for his sixth Run­ner Freight IMCA Modified victory of the season.

Casey Moyer scored his second Valentino’s IMCA Hobby Stock main event victory and Matthew Andrews raced from 16th starting to his first Hoosier Racing Tire IMCA Northern SportMod win of the season.

Nathan Wahlstrom’s initial victory at America’s Home Track in his fourth year competing in the ATV Motor­sports IMCA Sport Compacts came ahead of Adam Reifler.
