Greene Takes First Feature and Most Popular Driver at SIS


By: Tony Paris

(Oskaloosa, Iowa) The Southern Iowa Speedway has continued to make it family friendly mid-week racing venture and this week was no different story. This week was Halloween in June with trick-or-treating before the races, a costume contest for adults and kids with bikes given-away in five classes, Also another twist was a stock car Australian pursuit and sport mod king of the hill added to the action.
The nights sponsor was Yaw's Auto Salvage of Des Moines and the first 250 people would get $2 off and residents of Albia, Lynnville and Sully would get in for 5 dollars. Extra money would be also added to the purses for 4 of the five classes thanks to some sponsors like Supreme Lawn and Landscape, Pyramid Graphics and Sports, Stout Structures and Edel Lawn Care. The John's Tree Service Sport Mod King of the Hill and 16 drivers would compete but it was Jesse Sobbing making the 3.5 hour pull from Glenwood taking the win over Scott Davis from Madrid in the final round to take an extra $100 home. Davis would earn a free pit pass for next week as would Bill Gibson and Josh Modde. In the Stock Car Australian Pursuit it was Damon Murty and Brad Pinkerton up front the entire race but infortunately because the last car every lap was eliminated it would be Damon Murty leading the last lap and taking the win. We would also learn the winner of the Drivers coupons giveaway and it was IMCA Hobby Stock driver Bobby Greene of Eddyville. The first feature of the night was the Autocrafters/Whalen Racing IMCA Sport Compacts and it was Bill Whalen Jr leading all 8 laps and held off a late race challenge by Merv Chandler to take the win. Whalen had said earlier in the night that he was going to go out and win in honor of a racing friend Tim Sands that we lost last week. For Whalen it was was his 2nd win of the season in Osky, Chandler would finish 2nd, Chuck Fullencamp was 3rd, John Whalen was 4th and Ronald McCish was 5th. In the Tracy Elevator IMCA Hobby Stocks it was Jamie Songer taking the early race lead but unfortunately the first race caution came out on lap 4 when Mike Hughes would come to a stop in turn 2. On the restart Songer would be passed by Bobby Greene and Mark Fee, Greene would take over the lead with Fee in 2nd. Another race caution would come out on lap 10 for debris on the front straightaway and 2 laps again this time because Dustin Griffiths would fly off the back stretch and get turned around and try to come back on the track. Shannon Anderson would work his way up to 2nd and would try several attempts to get by Greene but Greene would hold of Anderson to take the win. Hughes would work his way back up to 3rd, Fee was 4th and Songer was 5th. In the Musco Lighting IMCA Modifieds would see Andrew Schroeder jump to the early lead but after 2 laps was completed the caution came out for Dakota Hayden getting in the turn 2 wall. On the restart it was Jacob Murray taking over the lead and then Schroeder would encounter some issues and head pit side. Murray would see the yellow come out again on lap 4 when Tyler Cale and Scott Dickey would get together on the front straightaway. Murray would go on to take his 4th win at Osky and 2nd straight win. Josh Foster was 2nd, Cayden Carter was 3rd, Mark Widmar was 4th and Brandon Banks was 5th. Next up was the Pyramid Graphics and Sports IMCA SportMods and it was Ben Kates from Tonganoxie, Kansas leading lap but on lap 2 it was Jason Hall sneaking by for the lead. Hall would lead and start to pull away until Jason McDaniel and Jesse Sobbing would chase him down late in the race. Sobbing would take the lead on lap 13 and go on take his 4th win of the regular season and 5th overall at Osky. McDaniel, Hall, Kates and Brett Lowry would round out the top 5. Final feature of the night was the Carter's Manufacturing IMCA Stock Cars and it was Brad Pinkerton once again taking the lead. Pinkerton would have to deal with Colt Mather throughout the entire event and when the caution came out on lap 11 for Damon Murty going off the back straightaway, Pinketon would now have to deal with Nathan Wood and Matt Greiner. Pinkerton would continue to hold of the challenges when the yellow came out again on lap 13 for Todd Phillips going off the back straightaway. Pinkerton would go on and lead the remaining 3 laps and take the win. Mather would finish 2nd, Wood was 3rd, Greiner was 4th and Alan Van Gorp was 5th. Next Wednesday Night it will be Musco Sports Lighting Mid-Season Championship Night featuring the return of the IMCA Deery Brothers Summer Series to the 1/2 mile.
