really not being challenged even though Carter VanDenBerg wasn’t too far
behind. VanDenBerg tried to give a shot when lap traffic started to slow your
leaders but Flander was not to be denied his first career Sport Mod win.
VanDenBerg finish second, Track Point Leader Curtis VanDerWal was third, Brett
Lowry in fourth and Tony Johnson in fifth.

meanwhile Andy Hennigar grabbed second from Morrill on lap six. Morrill settled
for third, Todd Shute, driving the DC5 came home fourth and Dusty Masolini was
“Chelsea Charger" Damon Murty redrew the pole and took full advantage of

stayed in tow with Murty just never able to complete the pass as Murty took the
win and Cook finish in the runner up position. Corey Stout, Brad Pinkerton and
Kris Walker rounded out the top five.
Pepsi Cola IMCA Hobby Stocks feature saw Nick Murty grabbing the early lead but
Dale Porter snuck by on lap three. Porter held on to the lead until caution
waved on lap eight for Brandon Potts on the backstretch. On the restart, Porter
experienced troubles sending him to pit side that handed the lead over to Bill

Hodges in turn one. Bonnett fought off challenges from Dustin Griffiths on the
restart before going on to take the win the second time in six days at SIS.
