(Continued)

OSKALOOSA —

In the IMCA Sport Compacts feature, it was Shawn Cooney leading the first six laps before he bobbled and that allowed John Whalen to slip by on lap 7. Cooney bobbled again on lap 9 that knocked him back to fourth. John Whalen took the win his second of the season at SIS. Merv Chandler finished second, Bill Whalen Jr. finished third, Cooney was fourth and Trent Orwig was fifth.
Just as they were completing the first lap in the Pyramid Graphics and Sports IMCA Sport Mods feature, the caution flag waved when Curtis VanDerWal, Chris Larson, Levi Layman and Ben Kates got together on the front stretch. “Speedy Bray” Brayton Carter grabbed the early lead however and appeared to be pulling away, but Brett Lowry chased him down. Lowry passed Carter on the last lap to take the win as the yellow flag would fly shortly after the checkered. Carter, Tyler Gross, Tyler Heckart and Eric Flander rounded out the top 5.
Erick Knutsen from Cedar Rapids lead the first three laps in the Pepsi Cola IMCA Hobby Stocks feature, but he was passed by Dale Porter. Porter looked to be pulling away until the only race caution came out on lap 7 for Derek Hodges and Justin Hook in turn 2. Porter had the racing veteran Bill Bonnett on his back bumper and that is where Bonnett remained the rest of the distance. Bonnett tried several times to get by Porter but it was Porter holding on to take the win. Knutsen finish third, Dustin Griffiths was fourth and Donavon Nunnikhoven was fifth.
In the Budweiser IMCA Stock Car feature, it was Brad Pinkerton leading the first two laps. Jeff Joldersma got by Pinkerton on lap 3 for the lead, Zack Vanderbeek and Damon Murty got by Pinkerton on lap 4 and 5 respectively. Joldersma held off several challenges from Vanderbeek and Murty to take th win. Vanderbeek finish second with Murty in third. Nathan Wood found his way up to fourth and Jason Cook was fifth.
