OSBORN, Mo. (May 5, 2023) – IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars roared to the track Friday night and Jacob Dye roared to his first feature win of the season at US 36 Raceway.

Jack Potter took the early lead, setting a blistering pace on the fast and smooth 3/8’s mile dirt oval with Jacob Dye in tow. Mike Houseman Jr. and Tyler Drueke battled and ran down the leaders as the race developed with Potter continuing to lead.

Going caution-free, Dye made his move on the high side of turn four as the white flag waved, took the lead from Potter and picked up his first feature win of 2023. Potter placed second with Houseman third.

The IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars saw a loaded field of talent tackle the track with Ricky Couch taking the lead on the opening laps while Mike Nichols and Mich Ross both started their march to the front.

Nichols worked his way around the fast no. 2X of Couch only to see Ross following to challenge for the lead.

Nichols and Ross battled it out for the front with Nichols taking his first win of 2023 on the high banks with Ross coming across the line in second. Couch placed a solid and impressive third on the night.
