Oskaloosa, Iowa (June 14th, 2017) – Wednesday Night was Kraig Ford Night at the Southern Iowa Speedway and 45 cars signed in to tame the monster half mile. The Kids got to get up close to the drivers as there was a Driver’s Autograph session at intermission for the youngsters behind the flag stand. Meanwhile in the Hobby Stocks the $300 bounty on Shannon Anderson was again up for grabs thanks to Edel Lawn Service, Cindy Drost and Independent Auto of Marshalltown.
Shannon Anderson would get a milestone win in the Hobby Stocks keeping him perfect on the season. Bryan Claussen (Sport Compacts), Nathan Wood (Stock Cars), Curtis VanDerWal (SportMods) and Scott Dickey (Modifieds).
First feature of the night was the 8 lap Kelli Steli State Farm IMCA Sport Compacts feature. Five cars signed in to race and after the intial start called back, they tried to get a lap completed. Before lap one was in the books, the caution came out when Levi Heath and Brandon Housley, both came to a stop in turn one. On the restart, Daniel Fellows grabbed the lead away and never looked back. However Fellows didn’t report to tech so that gave Bryan Claussen the win ahead of Clayton Webster. Fellows was given third ahead of Heath and Housley.
Oskaloosa True Value IMCA Sport Mods 14 lap feature was next to roll on the speedway and it was Brayton Carter that grabbed the top spot early. Carter looked comfortable out front until the caution came out on lap four for Logan Anderson in turn two and Carter VanDenBerg on the back stretch. On the restart, Curtis VanDerWal made the right move and got by Jason Hall, Colton Livezey and Carter to take the lead. VanDerWal led the remaining laps to take his fourth win of the season at Osky. Jason McDaniel wrestled second away, Brayton Carter was third, Colton Livezey was fourth and Austin Paul was fifth.
Scott Dickey led all 14 laps of the Musco Lighting IMCA Modifieds feature event to take his first win in 2017 at the monster half mile. Colt Mather tried to chase him down but ran out of time and settled with a second place finish. Todd Cooney was third, Cayden Carter was fourth and Jason Murray was fifth.
In the Budweiser IMCA Stock Cars 14 lap feature event, it was Danny Thrasher leading lap one but on lap two, it was Nathan Wood taking the top spot away. Wood saw several challenges from Derrick Agee but it was Wood hanging on to take his third win at Osky ahead of Agee. Mike Hughes, Todd Reitzler and Thrasher rounded out the top five.
Final feature of the night was the KBOE Radio / Mahaska Bottling IMCA Hobby Stocks 14 lap feature. Jared Stephens and Ryan Wells led the field to the green and it was Stephens taking the early race lead. Meanwhile Mike Kincaid, started sixth, and Shannon Anderson, started ninth, worked their way through the field. Kincaid took the spot away on lap six edging out Anderson to the line but it was Anderson taking the lead away on lap seven. Anderson began to pull away and not even lap traffic would slow him down. Anderson went on to take his sixth win at Osky, 18th win of the season and 300th IMCA Hobby Stock feature win. Mike Kincaid fell short and finished second, Steve Allen was third. Stephens fell back to fourth and Bill Bonnett was fifth.
