HUMBOLDT — Zack Vanderbeek had competed in 36 feature races in his career at Humboldt Speedway, but had never known the feeling of taking first in any of those previous events.
That changed on Saturday night at the sixth annual King of America in Humboldt.
Vanderbeek used a late pass of fellow Humboldt Speedway veteran and 2014 King of America winner Rodney Sanders to secure his first-ever victory at the track as well as the $12,000 prize.
