ARLINGTON, Minn. (July 4) – Clint Hatlestad had a fantastic night as he was able to pick up his 100th IMCA Modified career win Saturday at Arlington Raceway. 

Hatlestad started eighth but had command of the race following an early restart. Another yellow on lap seven gave Toby Patchen an opportunity to challenge but Hatlestad wasn’t to be denied as he pulled away from the field. 

Patchen took the inside line for the final restart on lap 14 but couldn’t get around and watched as Hatlestad sailed to the checkers. Patchen took second with Josh Ruby starting 11th and finishing third.

Dan Mackenthun was the third and final leader in the IMCA Sunoco Sock Car feature after inch­ing ahead of Matt Speckman on the last lap. Trevor Serbus was also third to the front in winning the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car main.

A single caution slowed the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod main. Jeff Carter was a man on a mission in that race, winning from the ninth starting spot. 

Cory Probst topped the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Justin Dose raced to his first Mach-1 Sport Compact checkers of the season.
