By Jeremy Fox
Oskaloosa, Iowa (July 24th 2013) – Beautiful weather, temperatures
with very little humidity created a great night of racing at SIS. They were
racing two, three and four wide right off the the start of many races on KISS
101.5 Night and it produced some great finishes.
First feature of the night was the IMCA Sport Compacts feature and it was Kevin
Kirkpatrick grabbing the lead.Kirkpatrick slid up the race track and opened up
the door for Merv Chandler, who was driving his son Nathan’s car since his blew
up on Sunday, to sneak by for the lead. Chandler went on to take his seventh
win of the season at SIS, Kassidy Kirkpatrick got by his dad for second as did
John Whalen for third. Kevin Kirkpatrick and Bill Whalen Jr. was fourth and
Before a lap was completed the caution waved in the Pyramid Graphics and Sports
IMCA Sport Mods feature when Cory Van Zante, Jason McDaniel and Eric Flander
got together in turn one. When the race finally got rolling it ran
green-to-checkered. “Speedy Bray” Brayton Carter grab the early lead until
track point leader Curtis VanDerWal, who made his way through the field from
his ninth place starting position, grabbed the lead away on lap five. VanDerWal
went on to take his seventh win of the season. Carter VanDenBerg finish second,
Brett Lowry was third, Brad Iverson was fourth and Eric Flander was fifth.
Pepsi Cola IMCA Hobby Stocks feature also saw a caution before one lap was
completed when Travis Bunnell and Dale Porter got together in turn one. On the
restart it was Bobby Greene jumping to the early lead and he appeared to be
going on to the win until the caution waved again on lap seven. Greene got a
slow but good restart and was able to hold on until the caution waved when
Aaron Osweiler and Gina Greubel got together in turn four on lap twelve. This
time on the restart, Greene didn’t have a very good one as Dustin Griffiths and
Bill Bonnett got by and they race wheel-to-wheel the last three laps with Griffiths
taking his fourth of the season and second in a row at SIS. Bill Bonnett finish
second, Bobby Greene came across in third but was disqualified in post-race
tech inspection for illegal carburetor that moved Justin Hook to third. Jason
See to fourth and Steve Allen to fifith.
Bill Davis Jr. grabbed the lead in the Musco Lighting IMCA Modifieds feature
and it appeared he was going to take the win in the feature that went
green-to-checkered. “The Gasman” Cayden Carter made his way by Randy Havlik on
lap fourteen and then set his sights on Davis and Carter made the pass on the
final lap. For Carter it was his second win of the season at his hometown
track. Davis settled for runner up position with Havlik, Brandon Banks and
Jacob Murray rounding out the top 5.
Budweiser IMCA Stock Cars saw “From Across the Street” Corey Stout grabbing the
lead on the opening lap but it was Brad Pinkerton grabbing the lead on lap two
and looking to finish right where he left off the week before. The caution
waved on lap five when Jason Cook had something break in the front end of his
car and forcing him to a stop on the front stretch. This allowed Damon Murty
and Todd Reitzler to grab the top spot away from Pinkerton, Pinkerton exited to
the pit area on lap seven. Meanwhile Murty and Reitzler battled it out for the
lead with each taking turns, Murty lead laps six through nine, Reitzler edged
ahead on lap ten and Murty on lap eleven. Reitzler grabbed the lead back on lap
twelve and held on until coming to the white flag when Murty snuck back by.
Murty took his third win at SIS. Reitzler, Donavon Nunnikhoven, Stout and Kris
Walker rounded out the top 5.
Final feature of the night was the Iowa Sportsman Series 15 lap feature and it
was Paul Meinres leading the first lap but just before the completion of lap
two, Meinres made heavy contact with the wall in the exit of turn four. That
handed the lead over to Gene Tish, Tish went on to lead the remaining laps to
pick up another Sportsman Series win at SIS. Darin Van Dee, Travis Dawson,
Denny Binns and Chad Reynolds finish second through fifth respectively.
