SEYMOUR, Wis. (June 11) – Larry Karcz Jr. held court early in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature Friday at Outagamie Speedway as he ran the top groove with Kevin Hebbe giving chase.
Midway through the contest, Hebbe pulled even with Karcz. The duo battled door-to-door with Hebbe taking the top spot on lap 12. Karcz stayed within striking distance but in the end, it was Hebbe besting a solid field of cars for his first win of the season. Karcz had to settle for second at the pay window. Brandon Czarapata was third, Rod Snellenberger took fourth and Logan Leary completed the top.
In the IMCA Modifieds, Lucas Lamberies threaded the needle from his second row starting spot to make a three-wide pass for the lead on the opening lap. Lamberies pulled away from the field, dominating the event. When the checkers fell it was Lamberies taking home the win by a margin of eight seconds. Marcus Yarie was second, Tim Robbins had his best finish of the year to place third, Cody Schroeder was fourth and Tyler Wilson rounded out the top five.
Bernie Miller led the first four laps of the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature until Skyler Woods raced by up top to take the lead. Woods pulled away from the field to score his first win of the season. Jeff Schmuhl took second, Ryan Schmidt was third, Jayden Schmidt rallied to finish fourth and Miller placed fifth.
Defending IMCA Mach-1 Sport Compact champion Jake Peters was victorious in his first visit of the season. Peters had to fend off a hard-charging Kyle Jorgenson.
