August 27, 2011

In the Engine Pro IMCA Modified action it was Myron Deyoung continuing his hot streak over the last couple of months. Myron won in convincing fashion Saturday night holding off Mike Shanteau and Bob Hutson. Between Crystal and Tri City, Saturday nights feature win at crystal was his 7th checkered flag since the beginning of July, making Myron a strong favorite to pick up a win in the upcoming Great Lake Nationals show.

Feature Winner IMCA Mods - Myron DeYoung, Aug 27, 2011
A big wreck on lap 11 really mixed the field up a lot as a blown tire on the 76 of Greg Wiles put him in the wall and collected about 6 others. Almost everybody was able to continue but nearly everybody had to go to the pits for work, putting them at the rear of the field and making it very interesting as they began their march toward the front. In the end though it was Deyoung who held on despite a caution with 5 to go that bunched up the field and gave them one last chance to take the lead.

Even though it was season championship night, the Modifieds continue on for a couple of more weeks racing next Saturday and finishing their season with the Great Lakes National show coming up on September 17th.

Heat races went to Cliff Denman, Deyoung, and Armond Holley. B feature winners were Brody Bowser and Jimmy Hale Jr.
