Scott Wins Independence Points Season Opener

Independence Motor Speedway

Johnny Scott, visiting from La Cruses, New Mexico, made his first ever visit to the Independence Motor Speedway a memorable one.

Darin Duffy lead from the drop of the green during the Performance Bodies IMCA Modified A-Main, but a spin late while working through lap traffic brought out a caution, and put him to the back. Scott inherited the lead, but he had to fend off heavy pressure from Tyler Droste during the event’s final four laps. Scott was first to the line followed by Droste. Troy Cordes was third. Brandon Maitland and Jeff Waterman rounded out the top five.

Roger Ciesielski led the Burco Sales IMCA Stock Cars to the green, and he paced the field during the event’s first nine laps. Tom Schmitt started ninth, but he methodically worked his way towards the front. Schmitt wrestled the lead away from Ciesielski as the field completed lap ten, and he held on for the win. Ciesielski settled for second followed by Paul Shephard, Jarod Weepie, and Justin Temeyer.

Kyle Olson led every lap of the Albert Auto IMCA Northern SportMod A-Main, but Dakoda Sellers made him earn it. Sellers tried everything he could, but Olson would not be denied his first win of the 2017 season. Sellers ended the night second. Fourth row starters Tony Olson and Nate Smith finished third and fourth respectively. Kyle Bentley came home in fifth.

After a rash of ‘tough luck awards’, August Bach finally had ‘Lady Luck’ grace him with a positive outcome this season. Bach took the win in the Christie Door Co. IMCA Hobby Stock feature. Leah Wroten was shuffled back outside of the top five at the start, but she made a nice recovery to finish the night in second. Benji Irvine, Andrew Torkelson, and Tyler Ollendieck made up the rest of the top five.

Jason Gorman also made his first trip the Buchanan County Fairgrounds a memorable one as he took the win during the RCZ Enterprises Indee Cars A-Main. Donny Erger finished second followed by Cole McNeal.

Next Saturday (May 13) is ‘Salute to Mothers’ night at the Independence Motor Speedway. The Indee Weekly Racing Series will see the first official points night for the Budweiser IMCA Late Models as well as all five other classes. Hot laps are set for 6:30 PM.
