Reigning High Energy Performance IMCA Hobby Stock Champion Leevi Runge is looking to repeat in 2016. He has use consistency to take a comfortable 22 point lead over his brother Landon with a 225 to 203 point advantage. Although anything can happen, the battle will be focused on the runner up position as Riley Raynard trails Landon Runge by a mere 2 points. Rookie standout Riese Dignan is sitting 4th overall with 180 points and Kiana Stepp rounds out the top 5 with 179 points.

Highly decorated veteran Joren Boyce, who is competing in his 30th year of racing, is tied with 2013 track champion Gregg Mann for 4th with 215 points.

Only 4 points separate the top 3 positions in the 2016 track champion points race.

The 2015 IMCA Super Nationals Modified Feature pole sitter “Mad” Mike Hagen sits three points back with 214 points. Riley Emmel is the only IMCA Modified driver in the top 5 points to register a feature win, and also the only modified driver at all to register multiple feature wins in 2016, sits 3rd overall with 213 points. Kelly Bauman and Richie Mann round out the top 5 with 196 and 193 points respectively.

“Mad” Mike Hagen was looking sharp, on and off the track in his brand new ride. He would earn himself the $50 Hard Charger award on August 6th, courtesy of Rocky’s Race Engines. Mike would start 7th row inside and wind up finishing 4th in the Kendall’s Supply IMCA Modified feature.

Mike Balcaen had himself a roller coaster ride for the Fast 40 Wissota Late Model special event. After failing to make weight after a successful heat race, he would have to start at the back of the field in the feature. Throughout the 40 lap main event he would find himself battling for 1st at times, ultimately settling for 3rd on the field. Good enough to earn him the $50 Hard Charger award courtesy of Rocky’s Race Engines.
