Jennerstown, PA (July 16, 2016) – ISMA's return to the Jennerstown Speedway after a nine-year hiatus proved to be well worth the wait. A quick thunderstorm just prior to feature time rolled in and out but it did not dampen the excitement that proceeded it. In a seventeen minute, twenty-eight second, 50 lap feature, only one short yellow flew to slow the action. The side by side racing and lead swapping out front, left the fans who stuck with it, in awe. Early leader Dave Shullick Jr, lost his spot to Mark Sammut, got it back one lap later and then lost it again to Mike Ordway Jr., but regained it in the same lap. When Ordway Jr.'s 61 shut down on lap 32, Mike Lichty, moving up from ninth, became the challenger and he was able to take over out front on lap 33, never to give up the spot. He took the checkered 17 laps later for a $4,200 payday.

Starting third on the grid, Stephens closed in on race leader Moe Lilje, driving the Jimmy Bodnar 76 and got by in traffic on lap 20 as Lilje got hung up by a lap car. Stephens had 30 green laps to keep challengers at bay and it did just that to race end. He was also the recipient of the Shea Concrete Products Halfway Bonus of $1000, adding to his fine run.
