Borgman Knocks Off Vanover In Stock Car Feature At Thunder Hill Speedway

Lance Borgman dethrones the King of Thunder Hill Speedway Kyle Vanover in the Stock Car A Main - Tom Wiseman, Wiseman Photography

Jordan Grabouski is still able to score wins at Thunder Hill Speedway, as he proved Saturday night. But it’s getting tougher. Veterans are getting faster, and some drivers are showing that they are able to push on even without all four wheels. Grabouski found the Pit Stop Liquor Victory Lane in the BSB Manufacturing IMCA Modified feature, while Lance Borgman broke Kyle Vanover’s domination of the Heinen Repair Service IMCA Stock Car action, Matthew Crowell scored the win in the Kansas National Guard IMCA Northern SportMods, Adam Armstrong in BuyRaceParts.com IMCA Hobby Stocks, and Scott Spellmeier won the IMCA Sport Compact feature.

Polesitter Scott Brown brought the BSB IMCA Modified feature to the green
flag. Brown has struggled with mechanical and handling issues this year and
has been off form. This was not the case, however, Saturday night, as the
popular Holton driver showed plenty of speed and was able to stay in the
fight all race long. As Brown moved out to a lead, Jordan Grabouski and Tom
Charles were battling their way past Justin Becker. Becker had earlier
shown his own grit by winning his heat race minus a left front tire. As
Charles and Grabouski joined the fight at the front, Brown was edged back to
third. At the flag, it was Grabouski over the veteran Charles, with Brown
third, Becker fourth, and Nic Bidinger fifth.

Winning the IMCA Stock Car feature was the second struggle of the night for
Lance Borgman; the first was simply getting to the track, as he had hauler
trouble just north of the Speedway at Holton. After arriving too late to
start the heat, he started in the back of the pack and cut his way through
it to score a well deserved win. Jim Powell Jr. was second, Mike Taylor
continued to improve his Stock Car results with a third place finish, Marvin
Griffith Jr. was fourth, and Jack Finan rounded out the top five.

Matthew Crowell has knocked on the door of scoring a win in the IMCA
Northern SportMods, but has been stymied by the domination of Kyle Olberding
and Bryan LaRiviere thus far this year. On this night, LaRiviere was absent
and Olberding was unable to get to the front, which left Crowell in a heated
battle with Kurtis Pihl of Lindsborg. Crowell eventually prevailed in this
battle over Pihl, with Pihl hanging on for the second place spot. The
charge of the night was Aaron Hilderman’s run from 16th to a fine third
place finish, while Dusty Leonard finished fourth and Max Harder ended up
fifth.

Adam Armstrong is beginning to establish a strong grip on the winner’s
circle in BuyRaceParts.com IMCA Hobby Stock action, and he continued to
cement that grip with a strong win Saturday night. The Nebraska driver was
able to outrun second place Jacob Crowell, with Dominic Thyfault third,
Mallory Walters fourth, and Patrick Doherty fifth.

Scott Spellmeier also repeated his win from last week in the IMCA Sport
Compact division. Wade Heller finished second, Ronda Mewes third, Kaylee
Diekman fourth, and Lindsay Labonte fifth.
