Oskaloosa, Iowa: Wednesday night it was KIIC Thunder Country Night at the races as all five classes were in action on the Great ½ mile on the Mahaska County Fairgrounds in Oskaloosa.
The headliner of the night was the 16 lap Oskaloosa Quality Rental Sportmod main event. Logan Anderson shot into the lead by overtaking early leader Tim Plummer. Anderson was leading while Plummer and Curtis VanDerwal were locked in a battle for second. VanDerwal secured second and set his sights on Anderson, VanDerwal closed in on Anderson and challenged late in the race but Anderson drove a perfect race in scoring his first SIS win of he year. VanDerwal crossed the finish line just ahead of Plummer.
Derrick Agee has dominated the MidState Machine Stock Car class recently, Wednesday night saw Agee score his third consecutive win. Agee overtook early leader Jason McDaniel and held off a fast closing Cayden Carter late in the race to score the win. The three consecutive wins for Agee has brought a Bounty on the Moberly, Missouri driver. An additional $100 will be up for grabs for anyone who can beat Agee with the 14 of Agee in competition on July 8th.
The Parker Tree Service Hobby Stocks provided the fans with the closest finish of the night. Brad Stephens scored his second win of the season but it was anything but easy for Stephens. Hobby Stock ace Dustin Griffiths fought through the pack from a 4th row start and pressured Stephens late in the race. Sephens got to the checkers ½ a car length ahead of Griffiths in the 14 lap feature.
