STUART, Iowa (June 5) – Matthew Meinecke was the IMCA Modified winner on a warm Wednesday night at Stuart Speedway.

Meinecke led Cory Sauerman and Josh Gilman when the first lap was scored; Gilman got to second on lap three with Clay Money giving chase. The top three stayed the same until Kyle Brown worked his way past Money on lap 18 for third.

Gilman used the whole track to reel in the leader, but it was not to be as Meinecke went on to the win. Gilman finished second with Brown third. 

Buck Schafroth was the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winner, by a margin of less than a car length over Bran­don Pruitt.

The race was for second as Garrett Nelson checked out early in the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod contest. 

Shannon Anderson worked his way through traffic en route to the lead and the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock checkers.
