ANTIOCH, Calif. (June 15, 2024) – Jason Ryan Jr. and Jason Robles were IMCA feature winners Saturday at Antioch Speedway.

Ryan won the 20-lap Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMod feature while Robles collected the checkers in the 15-lapper for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars.

Kelly Campanile set the early pace ahead of Al Johnson in the Northern SportMod show. A low pass in turn four of the second lap put Ryan into second, and Ryan made a similar move a lap later to take the lead.

Ryan began to stretch his advantage, leaving Campanile to battle Ken Shrader for the second position. By the 17th lap, Ryan held a half-lap advantage over Campanile, but a yellow flag waved for Haley Gomez.

Ryan resumed command on the restart. Shrader tried to get a run on the inside, but Campanile kept her cool on the outside to maintain second. As Ryan brought it home to the satisfying win, Campanile was a career-best second, followed by Shrader, Tommy Clymens Jr. and Trevor Clymens.

Robles’ Stock Car win was his second straight.

Scott Foster jumped into the lead at the start ahead of Jason Jennings and Robles. However, Jennings got sideways exiting turn two on the second lap with Robles going by for second.

For the rest of the race, Robles kept the pressure on Foster. Robles made an inside move on Foster on the backstretch on lap nine to briefly take the lead, but Foster came back strong on the front stretch to complete the lap ahead.

As they raced to the white flag, Robles made an inside move exiting the fourth turn to grab the lead. Robles held off Foster on the final circuit to grab the victory. Jennings settled for third.
