STUART, IA (May 5) – The Bill Davis Memorial and a pair of make-up features highlighted Wednesday night action at Stuart Speedway.

Nick Roberts and Scott Bash started on the front row of the IMCA Modified feature. Roberts led early with Josh Gilman powering into second on lap three. 

Gilman worked high and low but it was not to be as Roberts took the dominating win. 

Gilman tangled with a lapped car on the final lap giving second place to Bash. Third was Kyle Brown with Shane DeVolder fourth and David Brown fifth.

Dallon and Damon Murty led the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars to the green flag with Dallon taking the lead on lap one. Dallon would work the bottom side of the track with Damon up top. 

A few cautions bunched the field and Dallon would hold off the challengers to take the win. Damon finished second with Todd VanEaton third, Jeremy Gettler fourth and Johnathon Logue fifth.

Cam Reimers and Cole Fenske brought the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods out with Reimers taking control early. 

Johnathon Logue gave it his all, but Reimers was the class of the field on this night as he went on to take the win. Logue finished second with Brayton Carter third, Adam Armstrong fourth and Brett Vanderheiden fifth.

Steven Crees and Riley Christensen were on the front row of the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock main event. 

Tommy Killen Jr. took over the front spot with Brandon Cox close behind. Cox drove it up the inside and contact between the top two resulted in a flat tire for Cox. 

Killen would fend off a hard charge from Eric Stanton to take the hard earned win. Stanton finished second with Christensen third, Matthew McAtee fourth and Luke Ramsey fifth.

Kansas driver Justin Kinderknecht pulled off the win in the IMCA STARS Mod Lites. Josh May finished second with Joel Huggins third, Randy Bryan fourth and Ed Griggs fifth.

Kolby Sabin survived to take the Mach-1 IMCA Sport Compact win over Craig Furstenau, Brandon Hartmann, Tyler Fiebelkorn and Mark Smith.

Sport Compacts and Hobby Stocks also ran their makeup shows from April 14 with Tyler Fiebelkorn and Matt McAtee pulling off the wins in their respective features.
