VanderBeek Starts Streak Of His Own
ALTA, Iowa – Zack VanderBeek ended his streak of second- and third-place finishes in the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by Swan Energy, and in doing so also ended Stormy Scott’s streak of four straight wins Thursday night at the Buena Vista Raceway.
VanderBeek started on the pole of the main event and led every lap in scoring his first win of the 2014 campaign and 24th of his United States Modified Touring Series career.
The win was worth $2,000 to the 29-year-old from New Sharon, Iowa.
Scott started the feature race in the fifth spot and clawed his way into second, but the 2012 USMTS Rookie of the Year could not find the muscle to get close to the 2004 USMTS Rookie of the Year.
Sixth-starting Dereck Ramirez was third, Kelly Shryock finished fourth and current USMTS Rookie of the Year points leader Jake Gallardo rounded out the top five at the flagstand.
Johnny Scott, Daniel Hilsabeck, Bryan Rowland, Joey Jensen and Jeremy Houle were sixth through tenth, respectively.
