SUSANVILLE, Calif. (June 26-27) – Their dominating IMCA Modified runs put Collen Winebarger and Shane DeVolder in victory lane at Diamond Mountain Speedway’s weekend Showdown.

Winebarger led every circuit to win his fourth overall feature of 2020 and earn $1,500. Already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot, he was chased to the checkers by fellow Oregon racers John Campos and Jeff Lovell.

Robert Miller ended the night in fourth and Ryan McDaniel was fifth.

On Saturday, DeVolder led every lap but the first one to earn a huge victory at the Lassen County Fair­grounds and gained his second overall win of the year, good for $1,500 and an All-Star ballot berth.

McDaniel ended in second with Winebarger getting third. Jim Pettit II posted a fourth-place finish with Riley Simmons rounding out the top five.

Fred Ryland took care of business in the opening night Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature, winning his third straight race at a third different track in 2020.  Tanner Thomas was a close se­cond while crossing the line third was Matt Micheli.

Andrew Peckham scored the big trophy in the Sport Mod main on Saturday.  Peckham received some pressure late but stayed out front at the line to earn his third win of the 2020 cam­paign.  Ryland was second with Matt Sanders grabbing third.

Diamond Mountain Speedway returns to racing for an Independence Holiday doubleheader.  The facility will host both the IMCA Modifieds and Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods on Friday, July 3 and Independence Day Saturday, July 4.
