Porter parks in victory lane at Arlington

ARLINGTON, Minn. (June 8) – Chad Porter put his no. 12 MN 93 IMCA Modified in victory lane at Ar­lington Raceway for the first time since May 13 of 2017 Saturday night.

Porter took the lead on the first lap after a caution that moved him up a row on the restart. When the green flag came back out, he passed three cars going into the first turn to take the lead.

He remained the leader for the rest of the race with Trent Loverude directly behind him taking second ahead of Clint Hatlestad.

Javen Ostermann won his first Alpha Media IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car feature, leading the en­tire caution-free race from start to finish. The Coors Light IMCA Sport Compact feature also went flag to flag, with Levi Selly leading over half of the race before Alex Dostal took the outside lane and got by him with two laps left to take the lead and win.

Matt Schauer was the B&B Racing Chassis IMCA Stock Car winner and Cory Probst collected the Eckblad Trucking IMCA Hobby Stock checkers. 

There were four different leaders in the Unhinged Pizza IMCA Sport Modified feature with Bran­don Opsahl the first lap leader. After an early restart, Jeff Carter took the lead with Eric Larson on his tail. 

By lap five, Larson got around him but cautions helped Kevin Kirt move up from his ninth place starting spot and take over the top spot. Zach Davis followed Larson to the checkered flag for third.
