Oskaloosa, Iowa (June 19th, 2013) –  A Beautiful day made for a

great night at of racing at the Mahaska County Monster located at the Southern

Iowa Fairgrounds. There was two, three and four racing through out the night

and that made for some great races. Also on hand for the night was the

Mississippi Valley Vintage  Racing Association for exhibition races.

In the IMCA Sport Compacts feature it was Trent Orwig grabbing the early lead

before Merv Chandler grabbed the lead on lap 4. Chandler went on to take his

4th win of the season over John Whalen, Bill Whalen Jr., Kassidy Kirkpatrick

and Matt Moore.

Todd Reitzler grabbed the lead in the Budweiser IMCA Stock Car feature but just

after the completion of lap one the caution waved. Reitzler resumed command but

had his handsful the remainder of the way as he had Damon Murty and Zack

Vanderbeek on his back bumper when it came to end. Reitzler took the win with

Murty in second, Vanderbeek in third, Rich Vogt in fourth and Brad Pinkerton in


Nick Marolf started on the pole and took full advantage of that in the KBOE

Radio IMCA Late Models feature. Marolf had pulled away until lap traffic slow

him down a bit that allowed Todd Cooney to chase him down. Just as it appeared

Marolf was going to take an easy win the caution waved forcing a

green-white-checkered finish when Dylan Book lost a drive shaft coming off turn

4. Marolf held off Cooney on the restart to take the win. Tommy Elston, Spencer

Diercks and Darrel DeFrance rounded out the top 5.

Richie Gustin jumped to the lead in the Musco Lighting IMCA Modifieds feature

and just after one lap was completed the caution waved for Casey Greubel losing

the handle. Gustin didn’t let that bother him as he resumed command and

appeared to be going on to the easy win until the caution waved two more times

on lap 14 and 15. Gustin held off challenges from Cayden Carter and Scott

Dickey the remaining laps to take the win. Carter finished second, Dickey was

third, Brandon Banks came home fourth and Tyler Vandekamp was fifth.

Pepsi Cola IMCA Hobby Stocks feature saw Bobby Greene lead the first 6 laps

before Mike Hughes worked his way from his 5th row outside starting position to

take the lead on lap seven. Hughes went on too take his 4th win of the season

at SIS. Greene gets his best finish this season in the runner up position.

Justin Hook, Bill Bonnett and Danny Thrasher finish third through fifth


Bill Livery lead the opening lap in the Pyramid Graphics and Sports IMCA Sport

Mods feature but just before the completion of lap 2, Livery lost the handle in

turn 4 forcing the yellow that handed the lead over to AJ Johnson. Johnson’s

lead was short lived as on the restart it was Curtis VanDerWal grabbing the top

spot, who worked his way through from his ninth place starting position.

VanDerWal went on to win by a whole straightway to claim his 4th win of the

season and his 2nd in as many weeks. Carter VanDenBerg passed Ben Kates on the

last lap to claim 2nd. Eric Flander finish 4th and Jason Hall was 5th.
