WAKEENEY, Kan. — Racing action returned to Wakeeney Speedway Sunday evening with more than 80 race teams in competition.
After finishing second to older brother Travis Saturday night at RPM Speedway in Hays, Kan., Dylan Sherfick redeemed himself to pick up the IMCA Modified feature win at his hometown track Sunday night.
John Fose led the first three laps before Troy Plummer assumed command. After a caution on lap nine, Dylan took the lead on the restart and held the lead the second half of the race for a trip to victory lane.
Plummer was second, with Mike Petersilie edging out heat one winner Fose for third. Brian Calhoon rounded out the top five. Dylan Sherfick and Plummer won the other two heat races.
Mark Zorn led the first eight laps of the 20-lap IMCA Stock Car feature before the caution waved for a stalled car. After the restart, Selden’s Jason Rogers passed Zorn and drove on for the win. Jeff Tubbs finished in the runner-up spot, followed by Dalton Bauer, B.J. Wagoner, and heat two winner Zorn. Eric Kinderknecht won the other heat race.
Dustin Daniels took the lead from Mike Appel on lap five of the 15-lap IMCA Northern Sport Mod feature and drove away for a trip to the winner’s circle. Clay Money kept Daniels in sight but had to settle for second. Appel, ‘The Frye Man’ Tyler Frye, and ‘Wild’ Willie Wynn completed the top five. Heat race victors were Chris Heim, Blaine Walt, and Daniels.
Polesitter Roger Garrison led the opening lap in the 15-lap IMCA Hobby Stock main event before Tommy Fose took over the top spot. Fose led the field to the halfway mark, but was passed by Goodland’s Eric Ross the following lap.
Ross held on for the win, with Fose edging out Cody Graham by inches for second. Leon Pfannenstiel and Jeromy Wagner finished fourth and fifth. Garrison, Josh Hrabe, and Brian Stich won the three heat races.
