WHITE CITY, Ore. (Sept. 2.) – Bobby Hogge IV won the 50-lap R. Charles Snyder Salute main event for IMCA Modifieds Sunday at Southern Oregon Speedway.

The big win paid the Salinas, Calif., driver, already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot, $5,000.

Hogge led from the start. Darrell Hughes II settled into second on lap 19 and followed Hogge closely during the second half of the race for a $2,500 payday. Bricen James made a nice charge from the back to finish third, followed by Clint Reichenbach and Robby Sawyer.

Guy Ahlwardt scored an impressive victory in the 30-lap Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main. The win paid the Antioch, Calif., visitor $2,000.

Ahlwardt led from the initial green flag. Two-time track champion Jorddon Braaten settled into second on lap eight and ran in close pursuit of the leader all the way to a nice $1,000 payday for second.

Daniel Ray finished third ahead of Braxton Possinger and Matt Sanders.
