Oskaloosa, Iowa (May 14th, 2014) – Exciting racing along with temperatures 20 to 30 degrees cooler welcomed fans on Farmer’s Support American and Kelderman’s Hobby Shack Night at the races.

First feature of the night was the KBOE Radio IMCA Northern SportMods feature and it was Jenae Gustin grabbing the early lead. Gustin lost the lead to Carter VanDenBerg on lap three. VanDenBerg look to be pulling away only to see the caution come out on lap six when Tyler Gross got into the tractor tire in the bottom of turn 2. VanDenBerg again began to pull away meanwhile Curtis VanDerWal moved in to the second spot. The caution came out one more time on lap 12 when Ryan Fullenkamp and Corey Van Zante got together in turn two. VanDenBerg went on to take the win becoming the third different weekly winner this season. Brayton Carter finish second, Jason McDaniel was third, VanDerWal fell back to fourth and Gustin came across in fifth.

Next Up was the IMCA Sport Compacts feature, which saw Trent Orwig take the early lead but just after one lap was completed the caution came out for debris in turn one. Orwig and Bill Whalen began to battle for the top spot and it was Whalen getting by. Whalen went on to take his 2nd consective win over Orwig, Larry Hopkins, Matt Moore and John Whalen.

The IMCA Late Models 20 lapper was out next and they were lead to the green by Defending Track Champion Todd Cooney and Tommy Elston. Cooney took advantage and began to pull away. Cooney looked to be taking the easy win but then the caution came out on lap nine when Spencer Diercks took a sharp right turn in to the monster in turns one and two. Cooney had to contend with Colby Springsteen and Nick Marolf the rest of the way but held on to take the win over Springsteen, Marolf, Elston and Kevin Kile.

Only eight Musco Lighting IMCA Modifieds were in attendance and it was AJ Johnson taking the early lead. Johnson saw Cayden Carter and Todd Shute sneak by on lap three. Carter and Shute battled it out side by side the next handful of laps before Shute took the lead away on lap nine. Shute picked up his third feature in as many nights at SIS. Carter, Andrew Schroeder, Johnson and Kurt Kile rounded out the top five.

In the Pepsi IMCA Hobby Stocks feature, it was Brandon Cox taking the early lead. Cox’s lead was short lived because just after the completion of lap three the red flag came out when Gina Greubel had the left rear axle break and rolled two times in turn one. Gruebel was okay but her night ended meanwhile on the restart, Cox saw Mike Hughes and Brad Stephens on his back bumper. Hughes grabbed the lead away from Cox and Dustin Griffiths moved his way to second spot. Hughes held off challenges from Griffiths even after a caution on lap 12. Hughes took his second win of the season and Griffiths finish 2nd. Nick Ulin, Craig Brown and Cox finished 3rd through 5th respectively.

Saved the best for last because the final feature of the night was the Budweiser IMCA Stock Cars feature. This feature was full of two, three and four wide excitement the entire way. Damon Murty started on the front row and took advantage by taking the lead meanwhile the battles behind him had fans on the edge of their seats. The first caution came out on lap 13 when Corey Stout and Donavon Nunnikhoven got together in turn one. Zack Vanderbeek worked his way into second and set his sights on getting by Murty which he would do when on the restart after a caution on lap 14. Vanderbeek led the remaining four laps to take the win over Murty, Justin Temeyer, Cayden Carter and Kris Walker.
