ARLINGTON, Minn. (Aug. 24) – Josh Larsen led the entire B&B Racing Chassis IMCA Stock Car feature to pick up his first career win in the class Saturday at Arlington Raceway. 

By the 18th lap, Larsen got a bit high in turn four as he was going around lapped traffic and slid off the track a bit but was able to recover and maintain his spot. Matt Speckman was working to challenge and got up to second before mechanical troubles putting him in the pit. 

After that, A.J. Zimmerman stayed right behind Larsen to take second ahead of Dan Mackenthun, who had started 10th.

The MN 93 IMCA Modifieds put on a flag-to-flag race with three-wide racing throughout the 20 laps. The fast car on the track was piloted by Tyler Limoges, who got around five cars in six laps to take over the front spot and stay there for the duration.

Trevor Serbus took home the trophy in the Alpha Media IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car feature while the Eckblad Trucking IMCA Hobby Stock feature again saw Cory Probst take the lead halfway through and lead to the finish. 

Tim Siercks prevailed in a 23-car Unhinged Pizza IMCA Northern SportMod tussle and Scott Porter was the Coors Light IMCA Sport Compact winner.
