BOONE, Iowa (May 30) – Boone Speedway saw another big car count for its Saturday night racing program with 199 race cars checked into the pits and Dylan Nelson repeated his win from last week in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock division.
The Hobby Stocks ended the night’s racing with their 15-lap feature event. Braden Richards led the troops in the early going of the race but Nelson was quickly up to challenge him by lap three.
By lap five, Nelson had taken over the top spot and was successful in warding off Richards the rest of the way to the checkers. Richards held the second spot, Eric Knutson came from 11th starting to take third place, fourth was Solomon Bennett, and Shane Butler completed the top five.
Cory Sauerman took home the victory in the IMCA Modified contest and it was 12th starting Jay Schmidt making a last-lap pass for the win in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car division. Jake Sachau took the win in the caution-free Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod show.
This Saturday, June 6, spectators will be allowed in the grandstands, observing Iowa’s social distancing guidelines with Covid-19.
