Oskaloosa, Iowa (May 1st, 2013) – All day temperatures were in the 70‘s in
Oskaloosa but by the time the races started it was twenty to thirty degrees
cooler and the wind was coming from the north. That didn’t stop the speedway
from seeing some action on Watters Autoland Late Model Season Opener and Pro
Line Building Company Free Popcorn Night.
Tom Darbyshire grabbed the early race lead in the KBOE Radio IMCA Late Models
feature but on lap 5, the power plant expired forcing him to a stop in turn 1
and the yellow flag to wave. Kevin Kile inherited the lead on the restart and
lead until lap 9 when Todd Cooney grabbed the lead away. A few laps later on
lap 12 the caution waved when Colby Springsteen spun out on the backstretch.
Cooney looked to being pulling away but Spencer Diercks got by Kevin Kile on
lap 16 and chased down Cooney. Diercks made the move and pass in turn 3 to take
the victory over Todd Cooney. Kevin Kile, Andy Eckrich and Chad Cooney rounded
out the top 5.
In the IMCA Sport Compacts feature it was John Whalen leading from
start-to-finish in the 10 lap feature. Bill Whalen Jr. finish second, Merv
Chandler was third, Alex Sampson was fourth and Matt Moore was fifth.
Donavon Nunnikhoven lead the first lap in the IMCA Hobby Stock feature but just
after the completion of lap one, the caution waved for Dustin Griffiths in turn
4. On the restart, Nunnikhoven was passed by Mike Hughes and Hughes
looked to continue right where he left on Sunday in Knoxville but then the
caution came out on lap 9 for Aaron Osweiler. Hughes held off any challenges to
take the win over Bobby Greene, Danny Thrasher, Nunnikhoven and Justin Hook.
“Mighty Mouse” Jason McDaniel lead from start-to-finish in the Pyramid Graphics
and Sports IMCA Sport Mods feature but he had several challenges from Tony and
AJ Johnson in the early going. Then late in the race it was Tony Johnson put
challenges on McDaniel, McDaniel held off the challenges even after a caution
on lap 14 that forced a green-white-checkered finish. McDaniel took the win
with Tony Johnson in second. Eric Flander got by AJ Johnson for third meanwhile
Carter VanDenBerg was fifth.
Randy Killen lead the first 7 laps in the Budweiser IMCA Stock Cars feature
before Zack Vanderbeek took the top spot away. Vanderbeek pulled away to grab
the win over Nathan Wood, Randy Killen, Jason Cook and Corey Stout.
In the Musco Lighting IMCA Modified feature it was Brandon Banks lead the first
lap before Bill Gibson grabbed the lead. Gibson lead until lap 6 when Todd
Shute grabbed the top spot. The first yellow came out for Casey Greubel in turn
4 on lap nine and then the next one came out on lap 11 for Cory Sample, Bill
Davis Jr. and Jeff Waterman on the frontstretch. On the restart, Shute was
passed by Jesse Sobbing. Sobbing went on to take the win meanwhile Jacob Murray
got by Todd Shute for 2nd. Cayden Carter was 4th and BillGibson was 5th.
Next Wednesday Night will be Kelli Steil State Farm Insurance Night plus IMCA
Hobby Stock Special. Hot Laps at 7pm and Racing at 7:30 pm every Wednesday
