Cook wins tune-up for Stock Car Shootout at SIS

OSKALOOSA —

With the 19th Annual Budweiser Stock Car Shootout and Inaugural Merv Chandler Memorial only a week away, this was the final week to tune them up. 
The track produced some great racing all night and the Stock Cars seem to always leave the fans on their feet. 
First feature of the night was the IMCA Sport Compacts 10-lap event. On the first lap, they would go four-wide entering turn one, but when things settle themselves out it was Austen Beccera grabbing the lead. Beccera saw Shaun Slaughter take the lead away on lap three and never look back. Beccera finish second, John Whalen was third, Cody Cleghorn was fourth and Bill Whalen was fifth.
Out next was the "Class too Tough Tame", the Budweiser IMCA Stock Cars for their 18-lap feature. Brandon Jay jumped to early lead but Jason Cook was knocking on the back side until the only race caution came out on lap two when Damon Murty got side aways and collecting Todd Reitzler, Doug Sylvester and Brock Welch in turn two, Murty was able to get moving before the yellow coming out. On the restart, while Jay continued to lead, Cook saw Damon Murty take the second spot away. Cook did not give up though as he took back the second spot on lap four and took the lead away from Jay on lap five. Cook appeared to be heading on to the win but he saw Murty and Cayden Carter try to take the win away. Carter grabbed the lead coming to the white flag but Cook took back coming to the checkered to pick up his first win at Osky. Carter, Murty, Corey Stout and Jay rounded out the top five. 
In the KBOE Radio IMCA Sport Mods 16-lap feature, it was Colton Livezey leading the first lap. Curtis VanDerWal after having a bad week the week before found his way to the top spot on lap two and then the caution came out on lap six for Rich Vogt and Kelly Buckallew in turn two. VanDerWal would go on and take the win over Brayton Carter, Jason McDaniel, Logan Anderson and Carter VanDenBerg.
