VINTON, Iowa (June 14) – Sunday’s IMCA Modified 20-lap feature saw long-time Benton County Speedway racer Troy Cordes outduel Dylan Thornton from California for the win.
The two traded the lead several times before Cordes was able to take control late in the race. Thornton ran a close second ahead of last week’s winner Tom Berry Jr.
The IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature belonged to Shawn Ritter. He ran the extreme low line the entire race and held back Damon Murty in getting to the checkers first.
Outside front row starter Tony Olson put on a dominating performance in winning the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod main. Olson ran the extreme high side the entire race in leading flag to flag. Dylan VanWyk made the bottom work well but not good enough to get by Olson in settling for second.
Plenty of excitement was witnessed by the fans in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature. When the checkers flew it was Brett Vanous making his way to victory lane following a spirited battle with second place finisher Nathan Ballard.
Nearly 100 race car drivers packed the pit area. The Specialty Promotions group provided another excellent race track that provided plenty of side by side racing in all divisions.
