ARLINGTON, Minn. (Aug. 3) – Dalton Magers raced to his third win in as many starts this season, and his first at Arlington in Saturday’s MN 93 IMCA Modified feature.

Ryan Bjerkeset was the early frontrunner before Magers took the low side going into turn two and came out ahead going down the backstretch.

Brandon Beckendorf from Danube was moving up and waiting to challenge Magers. He had to get around Trent Loverude to do so, but with a couple laps to go in the race Loverude took back his spot and finished second behind Magers. 

The Alpha Media IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car feature saw Trevor Serbus get out front and re­main the leader for the duration. Dan Mackenthun pulled away and went onto to take the B&B Racing IMCA Stock Car win. 

Matt Looft passed 11 cars on the way to the Unhinged Pizza IMCA Northern SportMod checkers and Cory Probst led from the fourth to the final circuit in the Eckblad Trucking IMCA Hobby Stocks. 

Scott Porter led the entire Coors Light IMCA Sport Compact feature. 

More than 100 cars and 49 go-karts were signed in for the Sibley County Fair show.
