Sioux County Youth Fair Races Held Tuesday Night In Sioux Center
Date posted - July 18, 2012
A hot Tuesday evening at the Sioux County Youth Fair saw a mix of familiar foes and some newcomers to the Sioux Speedway in 2012 for the 4th Annual Mouw Motor Company Stock Car Nationals. The first class to take to the track for their main event was the B and B Salvage Hobby Stocks. Newcomer, Corey Probst out of Worthington, Minnesota took the early lead in his #75C car and set his sights on victory lane; however, Sioux Speedway veteran Drew Barglof took advantage of a restart and put his #45 machine out in front of Probst. The Sioux Rapids driver went on to pick up his second career Hobby Stock victory at Sioux Speedway. Following Barglof was Probst in second. Reading, Minnesota’s Justin Luinenberg picked up a third place finish in the #17L. Another driver making his first start at Sioux Speedway in 2012, Trevor Holm, finished fourth in his #17 car. Rounding out the top five behind the Chandler, Minnesota competitor was Brandon Nielsen of Spencer in the #T8. Nielsen takes sole possession of first place in the B and B Salvage Challenge Series going into the final event July 18. #32, Chad Ten Napel of Sioux City sits 4 points back in second, and Drew Barglof moves into third 14 markers back.
The Steve Brouwer Trucking B-Modifieds saw some fierce battles on the track and a first time Sioux Speedway winner. Steve Bents from Rushmore, MN took the early lead and had June 28 winner Jake Simpson in tow trying to run Bents down. A caution for the #43k of Josh Kelderman restacked the field and setup for a restart. Simpson got a good run on the restart and he and Bents got together before they even made it to the flagstand. Simpson ended up against the front stretch guardrail in his #5 car. The caution flag waved once again with the #15B of Bents and the #5 of Simpson both relegated to the tail. That allowed Mitch Van Engen of Doon to take advantage and cruise to victory in his #9 machine, his first on the Sioux County half-mile. Bents battled back to finish second. Dan Van Bruggen of Hospers picked up a third place finish in the #42V. Algona’s Jake Simpson ended up fourth and Harvey Vande Weerd of Alton came home in fifth with the #44V machine.
The Sybesma Graphics Stock Car division took to the track to decide the 2012 Mouw Motor Company Stock Car Nationals Champion. 2010 winner, Troy Woelber took the early lead on the low side, but Elijah Zevenbergen battled on the outside to eventually take the lead. For most of the early part of the race the top five to six cars raced door-to-door. As Woelber was collected in a wreck in turns 1 and 2, Zevenbergen had to fend off new challenges by Jake Masters in the #11 as well as Randy Brands in the #27 car. Masters from Greattinger took the lead from the #66Z Zevenbergen machine near midway and Boyden, Iowa racer Brands followed suit passing Zevenbergen for second. As Stefan Sybesma and Zevenbergen battled for third, Brands started hunting down Masters. For a number of laps the #27 car kept pace, but was about a half of a straightaway behind the #11. Brands found the bottom side of turns 1 and 2 to his liking in the late stages and was in striking distance of the Masters machine with about four laps to go. Brands stuck the nose underneath Masters, but did not have enough to battle the #11 car out of the corner. On the next lap, Jake Masters took the low line to quell the charge by Brands. Masters went on to win, Randy Brands was second. Stefan Sybesma took the #5B car from an eigth place starting spot to third, Ocheyedan’s Zevenbergen came home in fourth, and Paul Wenzlaff of Yankton, SD finished fifth in the #10X car.
The 3rd Annual Ver Hoef Automotive Sprint Car Showdown is set for Wednesday, July 18 as pit gates will open at 5 pm, grandstands open at 6 pm, and racing will start at 7:30. This event will feature the JSTS Winged 360 Sprint Cars, HRA Traditional Nonwing Sprints and Hobby Stock Double Features.
