ARLINGTON, Minn. (July 1, 2023) – A driver from Princeton was king of the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars Saturday night at Arlington Raceway.
Jeremy Snow won his first career feature in the winged class, leading the distance in a 15-lap feature that ran green to checkered.
“It felt fantastic,” said Snow, an IMCA rookie at 48 and winner in his 14th night out. “We have taken some lumps this season (rebuilding the car in late May) so it was a great feeling to get this win. We have put so much into this.”
Snow ran WISSOTA super stocks from 2001-2011 and was out of the sport before getting back behind the wheel, with much success, in support of brother Joe’s Minnesota Micro Sprint Series.
“I paid attention to what some of the other drivers were doing and got the itch,” said Snow, who has 16-year-old son Wyatt as crew chief. “I tested a non-wing Sprint Car at Cedar Lake, ran about 18 laps and bought a turnkey car out of Jackson.”
Mike Stien was his closest contender but fell out on the last lap. That gave second place to Matt Johnson and Zack Glaser took third ahead of Trevor Serbus.
Stephanie Coopman raced from fifth to first in winning the Mach-1 IMCA Sport Compact feature and Zach Davis delivered the Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMod victory.
Dan Mackenthun was the third and final IMCA Sunoco Stock Car leader. Clint Hadlestadt topped the Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds and Cory Probst won again in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.
