Oskaloosa, Iowa (July 10th, 2013) –  Wednesday Night the race track

honored a long time supporter of the Southern Iowa Speedway with the Dave Lowry

Memorial sponsored by Monte Motor Parts, your official Bobcat, Kubota,

Landpride and Napa Auto Parts Dealer in Montezuma. Also the night featured a

Sport Mod King of the Hill sponsored by Monte Motor Parts and John’s Tree


After all the heat races were completed the Sport Mod King of the Hill took

place and it was Curtis VanDerWal, Jason McDaniel and Brett Lowry making the

final three. VanDerWal beat Lowry for the chance to face McDaniel in the final

of the King of the Hill both won three races before the final three. McDaniel

grabbed the win over VanDerWal to pocket $150 meanwhile VanDerWal pocketd an

extra $50.

Despite only three cars in the IMCA Sport Compacts feature, the race was very

entertaining. John Whalen grabbed the lead and continue to hold off Bill Whalen

and Merv Chandler until lap seven. John Whalen lost a wheel in turn two that

allowed Chandler and Bill Whalen Jr to get by. Chandler went on to take the win

with Bill Whalen Jr. in second.

Pepsi Cola IMCA Hobby Stocks feature saw Bobby Greene grab the early lead but

just after most of the field crossed the start finish line, the caution waved

when Brandon Potts, driving the old Scott Shull car, was facing the wrong

direction on the front stretch meanwhile Bill Bonnett was in the work area

changing a tire, Bonnett was scored on lap one so by a technically he was not a

lap down since the whole field was not scored on lap two. Greene continue to

lead but the caution waved again on lap five when Danny Thrasher experience

troubles. Greene lead until lap 9 when Bill Bonnett got by. Bonnett went on to

take his second win of the season. Mike Hughes, Greene, Justin Hook and Dustin

Griffiths round out the top five.

Logan Anderson  grabbed the early lead in the Pyramid Graphics and Sports

IMCA Sport Mods feature before the caution waved on lap 3 when Tony Johnson

experience problems on the front stretch. Anderson continued to lead until a

pair of cautions on lap seven and eight. Anderson saw veteran driver Curtis

VanDerWal, who worked his way up to second after starting ninth. VanDerWal made

the past on lap nine to grab the lead from Anderson and cruise on to his sixth

win of the season. Eric Flander grabbed the second spot on lap eleven, Carter

VanDenBerg grabbed third, Brett Lowry came home in fourth and Anderson was


Brad Pinkerton started on the pole in the Budweiser Stock Car feature and never

looked back in the 18 lap race. Only thing that was trying to slow Pinkerton

was lap traffic late in the race but he wasn’t to be denied as he took his

first win of the season. Zack Vanderbeek finish in the runner up position.

Jason Cook, Rich Vogt and Alan Van Gorp rounded out the top 5.

The final feature of the night was the Musco Lighting IMCA Modified feature and

after the initial start was called back it was Scott Dickey grabbing the lead.

Dickey started to pull away after Todd Shute left the race early after making

his way to second and then broke a tie rod because of hitting a tractor tire.

Dickey went on to take his second win of the season at SIS. Jacob Murray finish

second and Colt Mather was third. Andrew Schroeder, 1st visit back after the

incident with Mark Widmar earlier this season, came home in fourth and Jeremy

Mills most likely getting ready for next week’s money week came home in fifth.
