Bethany checkers fly for Stallbaumer

By Chet Querry BETHANY, Mo. (June 27) – With a new running order every time around the oval, Tim Stallbaumer was the leader of the 15th and final circuit of Saturday’s Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature at Bethany Speedway. Stallbaumer found his way to the front and never looked back as he picked up the win from the eighth starting spot. Tim Eaton held the lead for a few laps about mid-race and finished second. Steven Clancy and Chris Wright stayed in close contact the entire race and finished third and fourth, respectively.  The IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature started with Mich Ross and Steve Starmer on the front row. From the drop of the green flag for about four laps they stayed side by side with Ross on bottom and Starmer on top. Starmer adjusted his line to the bottom as the top lost just a little speed after an early caution and followed Ross for a few laps. The top changed as it had very few cars on it for a few laps and [Read More]

By Randy Pospishil sports@norfolkdailynews.com NORFOLK, Neb. (June 27) – Seven days ago, Justin Svoboda’s no. 16 Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod was pictured beneath the no. 22 car of Tim Swartz on the front straightaway at Off Road Speedway.  Just a week later, Svoboda was celebrating his first SportMod win at the track, a big moment during what has been a difficult season.  “We’ve had a rough go of it so far. This is my ninth night of racing and this is only the fifth race that I’ve finished,” Svoboda said. “We’ve been fighting a lot of issues and trying to get this new car headed in the right direction, and it looks like it’s starting to go that way. It went pretty good tonight, sort of a change from zero to hero. Hopefully it’ll keep going that way, and we can click off some more wins.”  Svoboda made the most of an opportunity to start on the pole and was able to lead every one of the 20 laps while as many as five different [Read More]

By Scott Owen  SHAWANO, Wis. (June 27) – The fans that came out in droves for Hall of Fame Night at Shawano Speedway enjoyed a hall of fame caliber performance from Dan Michonski Saturday night.  After qualifying from a ‘B’ feature, Michonski started 17th and hustled all the way to the front of the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature field.

Baumli up to challenge at Doyle Lance Remembrance Race

By Jacob Blair  OSBORN, Mo. (June 26) – When the big money is on the line, it is historically J.J. Baumli al­ways challenging to run away with the winner’s check. However, for the Doyle Lance Remem­brance Race for the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, it looked as though Mich Ross and Connor Ma­soner would be the one’s battling for the trophy.  Ross led more than half of the 20-lap feature, with Masoner in his tire tracks. With a few laps to go, Masoner got a run on Ross and the two made contact. Both drivers left the track with flat tires and Baumli inherited the lead and the eventual win. Chad Clancy, making his first appearance in a Stock Car this season, finished in the second posi­tion. Tim Eaton, also making his first Stock Car appearance of 2020, finished third with Thomas Roberts fourth and Brad Derry in fifth. The IMCA Modifieds put on the race of the night as it came down to a photo finish to determine the winner. Chad Clancy drove to the [Read More]

Boumeester is winner at Kossuth County Wyffel’s Hybrids IMCA SportMod special

By Greg Grabianowski  ALGONA, Iowa (June 25) – Jared Boumeester led the final 19 laps to collect the $1,000 checkers in the Wyffel’s Hybrids IMCA SportMod special at Kossuth County Speedway. Twenty-nine Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods contested the Thursday night main event with Bou­meester getting the win ahead of Matt Looft and George Nordman.  Boumeester had slid past Zach Davis for the lead on the sixth lap of the 25-lap feature and built a comforta­ble lead before encountering a group of lapped cars on the 15th circuit. Looft closed the gap to make things interesting as the two drivers weaved in and out of traffic. Boumeester regained his line and held off the former national champion for his second win of the season at Algona.  “It was a nice win against a great field of almost 30 cars,” he said from victory lane. “When I got to that big group of lapped cars I was thinking ‘Come on, we need a yellow flag, maybe that would help not having to try to get through all of [Read More]

‘Nitro Nick’ nails Port Royal PASS feature

By Frank Buhrman PORT ROYAL, Pa. (June 20) – ‘Nitro’ Nick Sweigart made up for a couple of early season disappointments with a dominating wire-to-wire win in the 20-lap Pennsylvania Sprint Series feature Saturday at Port Royal Speedway. Sweigart took advantage of his pole start and put his IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car in victory lane for the first time in the late-starting 2020 season. The win was hardly a gimme, though. Last week’s Port Royal winner Garrett Bard, started 10th, got all the way to fourth on the opening lap, then took the runner-up spot on lap 11 and began to pressure Sweigart in lapped traffic during the caution-free race.  Sweigart responded, though, and was 1.5 seconds ahead at the checkered flag. Bard’s finish gave him two wins and two seconds in five PASS starts, plus a Laurel Highlands Sprint Series victory.  Dave Grube matched Bard’s charge, advancing from 11th starting spot to finish third, ahead of Larry McVay and Derek Hauck. The Penns Valley Meat Market Hard Charger Award went to sixth-finishing Doug Dodson, [Read More]
