Lund and Bruns stay hot, Revier scores first of the year at Redwood
Redwood Falls, MN (July 22nd, 20120) – After rolling his own Sprint Car on Thursday night, Redwood Falls’ own Curt Lund, because of damage, had no intentions of running in the division this past Sunday night. That all changed, however, when car owner Jim Smith needed a driver for his #77 machine. Lund would take it from there leading the final eight laps taking home the IMCA Sprint Car win Sunday night at Redwood Speedway. Shaun Bruns made some sterling moves during the 20-lap IMCA Stock Car main event to take the win while Lund also reigned victorious in the IMCA Modified finale. Larry Revier drove a tremendous race to take top honors in the IMCA Sport Mod A-main while Chris Isaacson took home yet another win in the IMCA Hobby Stock headliner. Rod Manthey (Outlaw Hobby Stocks), Nate Coopman (IMCA Sport Compact) and Monte Heiderscheidt (Bombers) each turned in impressive performances as well during Hometown Bank Night at Redwood Speedway!
As customary at Redwood Speedway, the Bombers got the feature festivities underway with Tim Huseby and Nathan Gegner manning the front row starting duties. Huseby took the early advantage before being hounded by Monte Heiderscheidt. Heiderscheidt would waste little time making the pass for the lead and eventually took home the win. Huseby turned in a great run coming home second ahead of seventh starter Nic Heiderscheidt, Matt Olson and last week’s winner, Frank Billmeier. Huseby was the winner in the division’s lone heat race.
Defending IMCA Sport Compact National Champion Nate Coopman once again proved why he is one of the best in the business scoring the win in the division’s A-main. Coopman battled during the duration of the event with Aaron Betz before taking home the win. Betz, Stephanie Forsberg, Jed Trebelhorn and Nikkya Betz each turned in top five performances, as well. Aaron Betz was the victor in heat race action for the Sport Compacts.
The Outlaw Hobby Stock A-main was dominated by Norwood, MN driver Rod Manthey. Manthey jumped out front on lap two and never looked back on his way to victory. The best battle on the speedway was for the second spot between Randy Fischer, Jayson Firle and Dan Veenstra. Firle was able to pull even with Fischer several times but was forced to settle for third. Veenstra and Ryan McMullen rounded out the top five.
In IMCA Hobby Stock action, Chris Isaacson stormed to the front taking the win from his fifth starting position. Sixth starter Josh Telecky made some great moves early on in the event moving into third, eventually battling with Brennen Boettger for the second spot. Boettger ran the middle groove with Telecky on the bottom. Telecky threw everything but the kitchen sink at Boettger in the remaining laps but it was not enough to deny Brennen a second place finish. Out front it was all Isaacson taking the win. Boettger, Telecky, Wes Jahnz and Trevor Serbus all took home top five finishing positions.
Jordan Meine took the lead on lap one of the IMCA Sport Mod A-main. Meine looked strong out front and was scored the leader at the conclusion of the first lap. Back in traffic, Larry Revier, Matt Looft and Justin Remus battled for the second spot. Six laps in, Meine jumped the cushion allowing Revier to take the lead. While Looft and Remus battled for the second spot, Revier stretched his advantage to eight car lengths. Looft was able to dispose of Remus with two laps remaining while Revier was on cruise control out front. In the end it was Revier scoring his first Redwood Speedway win of the season. Looft, Remus, Meine and Adam Ecker rounded out the top five running order. Meine was victorious during preliminary action earlier in the program for the IMCA Sport Mods, who had just one yellow in their 12-lap A-main.
The IMCA Stock Car A-main proved to be an absolute slobber-knocker with Gary Mattison taking the early advantage. Mattison looked strong early on and was scored the leader at the conclusion of the first laps. Mattison continued to lead until a lap six yellow where he retired pitside, ending his night. Jake Bruns would inherit the lead bringing the other 13 cars left on the speedway to green. The battle for the second spot immediately began once again between Shaun Bruns, Bob Rebstock and Matt Schauer. Bruns was able to take over the second spot with eight laps remaining while Jake Bruns continued to lead out front. With five laps remaining, Shaun climbed the ladder in turns three and four moving by Jake Bruns for the lead. Once out front, the 10th starting Bruns stretched his lead to nearly eight car lengths scoring the win. Jake Bruns, Rebstock, James Richert and Ken Tietz each turned in top five performances, as well. IMCA Stock Car rookie Jesse Timm started the event in 15th and finished 6th.
The IMCA Sprint Car A-main was dominated by Curt Lund. Mike Stien led the first two circuits before Lund jumped to the top side of the speedway taking home the win in the process. Stien turned in a great run coming second ahead of Cam Schafer in third. Bruce Allen and Reed Allex rounded out the top five. Stien took the win during IMCA Sprint Car action earlier in the evening.
The IMCA Modified finale proved to be a wild one with Curt Lund taking home the win. The story of the event, however, was the run turned in by Redwood Falls’ own Dalton Magers. Magers, who started third, jumped to the top side of the speedway running a tremendous race finish second behind the ninth starting, Lund. Truman, MN regular Justin Anderson finished third, with Mike Gregg fourth and 12th starter Josh Rogotzke fifth. Anderson and Ben Panitzke took home win earlier in the program for the IMCA Modifieds, who drew 14 entries.
Next week the traveling stars of the IMCA North Star Series will make the second and final appearance at Redwood Speedway. Races begin each and every Sunday night at 5:30. For more information regarding Redwood Speedway log onto the track’s website at redwoodspeedway.com.
