Murray, Bushnell, Tiernan, Anderson, Mordock, and Claussen picked up wins at the Stuart Speedway
It was another night of new faces in victory lane at the Stuart Speedway on Sunday, June 15.
The IMCA Stock Cars opened the show, with Josh Daniels of Des Moines and Marcus Fagan of Adair picking up heat race wins. The A Main was a hotly contested affair with Rick Houseman of Winterset holding a slim lead over Josh Daniels for the first 11 laps. Corey Bushnell of Madrid took the runner-up position from Daniels on lap 12, with current point leader Tim Bengard lurking in 4th. Bushnell stole the lead from Houseman on lap 15 and went on to pick up his first feature win of the season at the Stuart Speedway. Bengard, Daniels, and Bryan Snell of Coon Rapids rounded out the top four.
The IMCA Modifieds then took to the track for two heat races, with Jacob Murray of Hartford and Rex Parkison of Earlham taking the wins. Murray picked up where he left off on the A Main as he took the lead on lap 1 and never looked back, as he also picked up his first feature win of the season. Josh Gilman of Earlham, Parkison, and Randy Havlik of Waukee were second through fourth respectively.
IMCA Sport Mod action saw Jamie Schirm of Dexter and Andy Tiernan of Woodward claiming their heat races. Tiernan took the lead on lap 1 of the A-Main, with Schirm a close second. Kevin Sather of Ankeny threw his hat into the ring on lap 2 to set up the battle for the checkers. At the line, Tiernan was able to hold off the field to capture his first feature win, with Sather, Schirm and Joel Bushore of Boone rounding out the top four.
The IMCA Hobby Stocks had three heats of competition, with point leader Shannon Anderson of Atlantic picking up heat 1, Rusty Gyles of St. Charles claiming heat 2, and young Joey Gyles of St. Charles taking heat 3. The 23-car field then took to the track for a 15-lap A Main, with Rusty Gyles taking the early lead. It didn’t take long for Shannon Anderson to make his way from mid-pack to the front, as he inherited the lead on lap 5 when Gyles was forced to retire. Eric Stanton of Hartford and Brandon Pruitt of Dexter chased Anderson for the remaining laps, but at the checkers it was Anderson once again taking home the hardware. Stanton came home second, Pruitt, third, and a very nice run for Joey Gyles to take fourth.
The IMCA Sport Compacts had one heat, with Brandon Claussen of Avoca the winner. Claussen held off Terry Romick of Exira, Dan Clever of Logan, and Devan Stuve of Des Moines to claim the A-Main win.
Two heats of Dwarf Cars were claimed by Jimmy May of DeSoto and Johnny Mordock of Creston. The top three of each heat then battled in a 6-lap trophy dash, with Mordock the winner. Mordock made it a clean sweep as he lead all 12 laps of the A Main for the win. Josh May of DeSoto, Jimmy May and Dusty Masolini of Des Moines rounded out the top four.
