EAGLE, Neb. (June 25, 2022) – Matt Andrews went sailing Saturday night, from row five at the start to victory lane following Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMod main event at Eagle Raceway.

Andrews started 10th, snagged the lead with 12 to go and took the checkers ahead of Ryan Argobast and Dana Deeke. 

“When you have to start in the back because of the points deal, it’s pretty tough to get to the front. A lot of these guys are really good and that’s the reason they’re out here,” Andrews said. “We’ve struggled getting through them but tonight was our night”

“I think we were in second four laps in and I know I looked up at the scoreboard and there were 12 to go when I took the lead,” he added. “From there it was smooth sailing.”

Jordan Grabouski won both Friesen Performance IMCA Modified and IMCA Sunoco Stock Car features.

Dillon Richards’ IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock victory was his third straight at America’s Home Track and Stuart Snyder paced the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars. 

During intermission there was a free money grab for the kids on the front stretch and thanks to One Shot Auto Repair and Village Pointe Toyota $1,600 was literally up for grabs.
