STUART, Iowa (April 14) – Brayton Carter, Dallon Murty and Shane DeVolder were IMCA winners Wednesday at Stuart Speedway. 

Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods came out first with the father/son duo of Bryan and Mitchell Morris on the front row. Bryan Morris led the first three laps with Carter blasting by to take over on lap four. It was all Carter from there as he went on to take the easy win. Brett Vanderheiden held on for second with Cam Reimers third, Dusty Masolini fourth and Garrett Nelson fifth. 

Next up were the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars with Miciah Hidlebaugh and Todd VanEaton leading the field to the green flag. Hidlebaugh went for a spin in turn one and Bob Daniels took advantage to lead the field through a couple of cautions over the first half of the race.

Dallon and Damon Murty charged into the top three and set out after Daniels at the halfway point. Dallon made a move to the outside just as Daniels’ engine let go on a restart with three to go and inherited the top spot. That would be the winning exchange as Dallon Murty went on to the feature win. Jeremy Gettler finished second with Buck Schafroth third, Michael Sheen fourth and Damon Murty fifth. 

Chase Rudolf and DeVolder led the IMCA Modified field to the green flag with Rudolf showing the way early. DeVolder marched into the lead on lap two and was never seriously challenged as he went on to the dominating win. Tim Ward made a charge at the end but settled for second with Cayden Carter third, Kyle Brown fourth and Rudolf fifth.

Scheduled features for both IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Mach-1 Sport Compacts will be run next week along with Jake Durbin Memorial races and 2020 Stock Car Awards presented by Sauerman Trucking, DJ Septic Services, Elite Electric and Wilson Welding.
