McCarl takes Sprint Invaders' first-ever appearance at SIS


Wednesday night at the Southern Iowa Speedway fans witnessed the first-ever apperance of the Brockway Mechanical & Roofing 360 Sprint Invaders to the big 1/2 mile. 
The night was sponsored by Pro-Line Building Company of New Sharon and WCM Metalworks of Winterset also featured the opener of track points.
First feature of the night was the IMCA SportMods feature and it was Brett Lowry redrawing the outside front row and he took advantage to grab the lead and never looking back to take the win. Logan Anderson ran second the entire way with Cory Van Zante settled in to third, Carter VanDenBerg came home fourth and Jason McDaniel was fifth.
In the IMCA Hobby Stocks feature, it was the racing veteran Bill Bonnett grabbing the early lead but just after the completion of lap three the only race caution came out. Bonnett had to contend with several cars including Dustin Griffiths and Mike Hughes. Griffiths grabbed the lead away on lap six from Bonnett but Hughes grabbed it away on lap 10. Hughes took the checkers with Bonnett taking back second. Griffiths was third, Danny Thrasher was fourth and Jamie Songer worked his way up to a top-five finish.
Originally scheduled to be the fourth feature out but was moved up because of a possible rain shower nearing the race track was the 20-lap Brockway Mechanical & Roofing Sprint Invaders feature. Carson McCarl earned the pole after Jonathan Cornell picked the Budweiser can with a four on it. McCarl jumped to the lead and appeared to be going on to the easy win, but then lap traffic began to slow him down around the halfway point. This allowed Cornell to catch up to McCarl and begin a battle for the lead. Cornell held off McCarl to take the checkered, however in post-race tech inspection Cornell was disqualifed for a wing infraction that handed the win over to McCarl. Jon Agan was credited with second, Matt Moro was third, Jarrod Schneiderman was fourth and Mike Houseman Jr was fifth.
