With most point leaders firmly in control of their divisions with only two IMCA point races remaining, Sunday night was all about the next generation of racers at Raceway Park.
The highlight of the evening was the “Kid’s Racecar Ride-A-Long Night” where every young fan in the grandstands had a chance to take a lap around the high banks in one of the cars competing that evening.
After the kids had their fun, the grownups had theirs, starting in the KISS 107 FM Sport Compact division. As has become the norm, Ramsey Meyer extended his point lead with another feature win. Most of the fun was behind the leader Meyer, where Don Tank pulled out the second place finish over Luke Jackson and Jeremy Boulware.
The Car Quest Hobby Stock feature was a chance for point leader Aaron Shearn to show why he’s the man on top as he sliced through the field from his tenth starting position to take the lead from Tony Fetterman to score the victory and extend his championship lead. Behind Shearn and Fetterman, Justin Frederick completed a fantastic run for third followed by Dave Riley.
It was Rusty Montange’s turn to stand atop the field in the MOPAR Sport Mod feature as he took control before the midway point and never looked back. Behind Montange, Darin Roepke held off point leader Karl Brewer and Kirk Beatty to finish out the top four.
Travis Barker has had a strong and consistent season that has put him second in the points standings behind Chris Mills, but Sunday he put it all together to dominate the Casey’s General Stores Stock Car field. With Barker out front on a rail, Jason Ward won the battle for second over Mel Elsberry and point leader Chris Mills.
The final feature of the evening in the Total Motors Modified division left the crowd going home happy as fan favorite Jim Cole took control at the halfway point of the main event and held on through a green, white, checkered finish for the victory. Jason Schneiders stayed near the front throughout the feature finishing second in front of point leader Ricky Stephan and Justin Sackett.
Action continues this Sunday as Raceway Park hosts the Tom Baker Memorial Race with extra money on the line for the Sport Mod division. Grandstands open at 5:00 pm with the first green flag dropping at 6:30.
