OSKALOOSA, Iowa – Jesse Sobbing took home the most green following Thursday’s green to checkered feature for IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds at Southern Iowa Speedway’s season-opening Frostbuster.
Sobbing, the defending Belleville Motorsports North Central Region champion, started third and caught Richie Gustin and then Cayden Carter for the lead before midway. He led to the $1,000 checkers while running with lapped traffic much of the way.
Carter, Richie Gustin, Jimmy Gustin and Jacob Murray rounded out the top five. Sobbing was already a 2014 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot candidate.
Also racing to victory lane were Cayden Carter in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Carter VanDenBerg in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Shannon Anderson in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.
Cayden Carter pulled away following an early restart and went on to win ahead of Damon Murty, 11th starting Brad Pinkerton, Todd Reitzler, Donavon Nunnikhoven and Cody Agee.
Cautions erased Jenae Gustin’s lead twice in the Northern SportMod main. VanDenBerg and Jason McDaniel both sped by after that second yellow. VanDenBerg took the win, chased across the stripe by McDaniel, Gustin, Justin Medler and Clint Luellen.
Anderson denied challenges by Dustin Griffiths and then Eric Stanton for top honors in a Hobby Stock feature slowed just once by caution. Stanton, Griffiths, Danny Thrasher and John Watson finished second through fifth, respectively.
