FRANCIS CREEK, Wis. (June 12, 2024) – Two-car star Benji LaCrosse gave a hint of even bigger things to come, racing from 10th to win the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature and taking Friesen Performance IMCA Modified runner-up honors on opening night of 141 Speedway’s Clash on the Coast.

On Wednesday, the Casco clipper motored all the way from 12th on the initial grid to earn the $10,000 top prize, plus qualifying eligibility for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational, helping bring the flag down on two of the richest days of racing this season for IMCA Modifieds.

LaCrosse, previously a two-time winner of 141’s King of the Creek special for Stock Cars, quickly became part of a five-car pack running at or toward the front in last night’s 50-lapper.

He completed the pass for the lead on the 32nd circuit and ran in heavy lapped traffic before winning ahead of Jordan Grabouski, Josh Long, Dallon Murty and Cody Schroeder.

Tuesday’s Stock Car win was the career 44th for LaCrosse in The Class Too Tough To Tame; his Wednesday win was his IMCA Modified career 141st.

Eric Mahlik and Coy Vlies both topped $1,000 to win features, in the Stocks and Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods, respectively.

Mahlik’s checkers were accompanied by B & B Racing Chassis All-Star Invitational qualifying eligibility.
