WEST FARGO—Two weeks ago, Rick Schulz barrel rolled his IMCA stock car during the feature at Red River Valley Speedway. He got the car put back together the following week and has been nearly unstoppable since then. Schulz has picked up wins at the West Fargo three-eighths mile oval and Norman County Raceway in Ada, Minn. in the last eight days and looked for a third win Friday at Red River Valley Speedway. He came up short, however, by a matter of inches.
GLYNDON, Minn.—Chris VanMil of Barnesville, Minn., scored his fourth IMCA sportmod feature win Sunday night at Buffalo River Race Park in dramatic fashion.

WEST FARGO—A late afternoon storm made for tricky track conditions and a wild and unpredictable night of racing Friday at Red River Valley Speedway.

A week later, he was standing in victory lane.
GLYNDON, Minn.—Jesse Skalicky has been turning laps at Buffalo River Race Park since he was a teenager in hopes of one day competing in the track's premier division ... the IMCA modifieds.

Sunday night at Buffalo River Race Park, Skalicky upset current point leader Mike Greseth to claim his first ever modified win.

GLYNDON, Minn.—There aren't many tracks in the upper Midwest where Mark Dobmeier has not won.

Until Sunday.
