EAGLE, Neb. (June 3, 2023) – Jake Bubak was back to teach his IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car foes a thing or two during the Schools Out For Summer show at Eagle Raceway.
Winner of both the main event and the race of champions at last September’s RaceSaver Nationals, Bubak sprinted back to victory lane in the finale event of the evening Saturday.
Bubak advanced to fourth following an early restart, got past Shayle Bade for third the next time around and advanced to second place on lap nine.
He grabbed the lead with 12 laps left and went on to the win ahead of Brandon Horton and Stuart Snyder.
“This was just for one night. We’re trying to get Toby Chapman and Jeff Stefonik going a little better,” said Bubak, also the 2020 RaceSaver Nationals king. “They have been struggling all year, so we’re just here to help. We changed a whole bunch this week and still were changing throughout the night and the car ended up pretty dang good by the end of the night.”
“I’ve got some experience in sprints, but Toby has been doing this a lot longer than I have. I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do next week. I think he’s going to feel like it’s a whole different car.”
Dillon Richards won for the fourth time this season at Eagle in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car main, Matt Andrews went back-to-back in the Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods and Neil Pella picked up his second local IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock win of the year.
Jordan Grabouski topped the Friesen Performance IMCA Modified results after the apparent winner was light on the post-race scales.
