Mike Hughes (Hays, KS) — Taking advantage of a late restart, Jesse Sobbing caught leader Jeremy Frenier and scored the $1,000 IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified victory on night two of the Sunflower Classic at RPM Speedway.

Frenier had taken the Friday checkers and looked for a repeat on Saturday. Eddie Belec stayed close to Frenier before the top duo caught up to traffic on lap 15.

Frenier kept a couple cars between himself and Belec before the caution waved on lap 23 for a multi-car tangle. Frenier lined up on the point for the restart, with Belec and Sobbing right behind.

When the green flag returned, Sobbing shot to the front and was first to the checkers in the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier and Precise Racing BST Series event. Frenier held off Belec for second, with Jeremy Zorn fourth and Dylan Sherfick fifth.

Nearly 160 race teams returned to Hays for the second night of the inaugural special. Mike Nichols topped the Dirt Track Central Goodland Machine Great Plains feature for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars while three other drivers repeated their winning ways from Friday.

Nichols, who broke his transmission on opening night, took over the point on lap four and held on for the rest of the caution-free Stock Car contest.

Hard charger was Justin Temeyer had to run a “B” feature to make the main event. He started 21st and finished second, with Perry Misner, Geoff Jermark and Jason Rogers rounding out the top five.

Repeat winners were Cody Graham in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Tyler Frye in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and David Dembowski in the Mach-1 Sport Compacts.

Graham passed race-long leader Russ Specht on lap 12 and held off Kurt Hansen for the Hobby Stock checkers. Austin Tammen finished third, followed by Garrett Hager and Specht.

Frye found a way around Cory Struckhoff eight laps into the SportMod main. Struckhoff ended in second, trailed by Austin Carter, Blaine Walt and Clay Money.

Four different drivers led over the course of the Sport Compact feature. Dembowski passed Dean Herzog on lap eight enroute to his bookend win.
