Block bags $1,000 IMCA Modified payday at Outagamie

By Edward Anschutz

SEYMOUR, Wis. (July 10) – Forty-eight IMCA Modifieds were in the house Friday at Outagamie Speedway and it was Wyatt Block bagging the $1,000 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualify­ing win.

Block jumped to the lead from his outside front row starting spot while Jason Ebert and Josh Long waged a hefty battle for the runner-up position. Ebert was finally able to dispose of Long on lap 12 and set his sights on Block.

As the laps clicked by, Ebert began to close but the lead Block had built up was too much. Block cruised to his first feature win of the season to score the rich payday.

With 31 IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars in action, it was a pair of former IMCA national champions start­ing on the front row of the $700 to-win contest as Rod Snellenberger and Benji LaCrosse brought the field to the green.

LaCrosse got the jump and quickly pulled away from the field. The caution flew with nine laps remaining but LaCrosse was unstoppable and dominated the event for his first win of the year.  Snellenberger had a hard-fought battle to place second.
