Last week races were rained out after the heat races, and forced double features on Hy-Vee/Hy-Vee Gas and Hogeland Auto Plaza Kids night.

 

The night would start with the O'Reilly Auto Parts Mod Lites Make-Up feature. Jeff Stensland would take the lead when the racing action got going but Mike Morrill took the lead from Stensland. Morrill's lead was short lived as he had mechanical problems.  Josh May gained the top spot and went onto the win, Stensland 2nd, Dusty Masolini 3rd, Joel Huggins 4th and James May 5th.

 

 In the Big 8 Tyre Center IMCA Sport Mods Make-Up feature it was DJ Robinson taking the early lead. The only caution would come out on lap 3 for a car coming to a stop in turn 3. Robinson would have to deal with Jenae Gustin.  Gustin made the pass on Robinson for the lead late in the race and went on to take the win, followed by Scott Davis, Cayden Carter, DJ Robinson and Jared Van Deest.

 

 The Toby K's Hideaway IMCA Hobby Stocks Make-Up feature saw Rookie Brice Udelhoven lead the first 5 laps before Michael Murphy took the lead. Murphy went on to win the feature. Kevin Fee, Brice Udelhoven, Eric Larson and Calvin Dhondt rounded out the top 5.

 

In the Mike's Hard Lemonade IMCA Stock Cars Make-Up feature, Steve Meyer took the race lead early. Meyer and the field would see the only caution come out on lap 4, Meyer wouldn't let that bother him as he would hold on to the top spot until lap 10 when Tracy Gienger passed by Meyer.

It was then on to another full show for racing, but first Mother Nature let us know who was the boss.  After a 15 minute rain delay, track crews had the race surface ready for action.

 

O'Reilly Auto Parts Mod Lites were up first.  Travis Stensland took the early lead. Josh May would make the high side pass for the lead. The only race caution came out on lap 6 but that didn't bother May as he would pull away and take the win. Mike Morrill finished 2nd in a borrowed race car, Andy Hennigar 3rd, Joel Huggins 4th and Stensland 5th.

 

Toby K's Hideaway IMCA Hobby Stocks 12 lap feature saw Josh Saunders lead the first 5 laps. Kevin Fee made a pass on lap 6 but, Devin Smith took the top spot shortly after.  Smith took the win in the feature.

The final feature of the night was the 20 lap Meskwaki Bingo Casino Hotel IMCA Modifieds. Ronn Lauritzen lead the first 8 laps in the feature, 2 cautions happen in the early going though would slow the event down.
