By: Tony Paris

OSKALOOSA, Iowa (June 27, 2012) – With temperatures soaring to near 100 degrees it was a nice hot night for racing at the historic Southern Iowa Speedway sponsored by Titan Machinery of Oskaloosa and Pajama Night at the Speedway. The big red machines meet race fans when they arrived and also paced the feature events. Any fan that came in their pajamas got a free hot dog for their efforts. Action started a little later than expected but the show run just as smooth as every other week finishing a little after ten o’clock. A breif intermission had the top 2 drivers in points in each class would race little RC Cars from the Leighton area around a little make shift track on the front stretch and it was Cayden Carter taking the win over Curtis Vanderwal.

First feature of the night was the Autocrafters/Whalen Racing IMCA Sport Compacts 8 lap feature. John Whalen would take the early lead but it was racing veteran Merv Chandler taking the lead on lap 4. Chandler would go on and take his 6th win in the last 7 weeks and 7th of the season at the Southern Iowa Speedway. Bill Whalen Jr would pass his brother John for 2nd. Tim Bevins and Anthony Cassat would round out the top 5.

Next up was the Pyramid Graphics and Sports IMCA SportMods feature and it was Bill Gibson leading from start to finish in the green-to-checkered caution free feature. Ryan Fullenkamp would cross the line in 2nd but be disqualified in post race tech because his MSD ignition box and chip wasn’t working. Curtis Vanderwal would be promoted to 2nd, Eric Flander to 3rd, Jesse Sobbing to 4th and Carter Vandenberg to 5th.

In the Tracy Elevator IMCA Hobby Stocks feature before 1 lap was completed Jarred Gann would come to a stop in turn 2 to bring out the caution. On the restart, Jamie Songer would start right where he left off 1 week ago and that was take the lead but just after the completion of 2 laps the caution would come out when Mike Hughes would go off the backstretch entering turn 3. Songer would get passed by Dustin Griffiths on the restart and Griffiths would hold the lead until lap 5 when the caution would come out for Shannon Anderson coming to a stop in turn 1 and then again on the restart when Richard Puhlka would hit a tractor tire on the bottom side of turn 4. Griffiths would not let that bother him as he would go on and take the win despite another caution on lap 7. Songer would end 2nd, Mike Hughes would come back up and finish 3rd, Kevin Fee was 4th and Kris Walker driving Scott Shull’s car was 5th.

Carter’s Manufacturing IMCA Stock Cars feature would see Leroy Groenendyk lead the first lap before Grinnell’s Todd Reitzler would take the top spot away when Groenendyk would slip up in turns 1 and 2. Reitzler would continue to lead until the first caution came out on lap 5 for Todd Phillips in turn 3 and then again on lap 12 for Corey Stout in turn 2. Reitzler would go on to the win with Alan Van Gorp in 2nd, Damon Murty in 3rd, Matt Greiner in 4th and Nathan Wood in 5th.

Final feature of the night was the Musco Lighting IMCA Modifieds feature. Bill Davis Jr was making his 3rd appearance of the season and he made it worth the trip as he would lead all 15 laps. There would be 3 mid race cautions on laps 8 and 9, the first 2 on lap 8 for Jacob Murray in turn 4 and then Todd Shute in turn 2. The caution on lap 9 for Scott Dickey going off the backstretch. None of those cautions would bother Davis as he would take the win with Andrew Schroeder in 2nd. Jake Durbin making his 1st appearance was 3rd, Jacob Murray was 4th and Beau Kaplan was 5th.
