Donnellson, IA (Friday, June 8, 2018) – It’s hard to believe were are already halfway thru the 2018 points season at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa, as Friday night was Mid-Season Championship Night presented by Midwest Performance & Power and Coors Light. When the final checkered flag of night waved at 9:25 PM, two driver’s visited victory lane for the first time of the season at the track and three others recorded multiple wins.

The 14 lap Armstrong Tractor IMCA Sport Compact feature took to the track first, with Kenny Smith and Jake Dietrich leading the field to green. Dietrich took advantage of his starting spot to lead lap 1 over Josh Barnes and Smith. But that lead only lasted for 1 lap, as Barnes slipped past him to take over the top spot on lap 2. While Barnes set the pace out front, Brandon Ruffcorn, who was driving Barnes’ back up car and started 9th, worked himself into second on lap 6. Two laps later, lap 8, the first and only caution of the race appeared for debris in turn 3. On the restart Barnes moved back out front, with Ruffcorn and Dietrich close behind. Ruffcorn looked under and even got up beside Barnes a couple of times over the final 5 laps. But Barnes was able to hold him off to claim his second win of the season at the track. Ruffcorn was 2nd, Brandon Reu started 6th and finished 3rd, Barry Taft finished 4th after starting in 8th, with Dietrich holding on for 5th.

Up next was the 18 lap Discount Tire & Service IMCA SportMod feature, with Ron Kibbe and Bob Cowman making up the front row. Kibbe used his starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Daniel Fellows and Brandyn Ryan. Fellows would then try to work under Kibbe over the next 9 laps, with Kibbe holding him off each lap. That was until lap 10, Fellows was able to get under Kibbe to take over the top spot. The action up front was slowed for the first and only time on lap 11, when a tire was clipped in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Fellows jumped back out front, with Brandon Lennox, who started 8th, and Kibbe following. For the next 3 laps Lennox tried to work under Fellows, but when he had no luck making the pass Lennox went to the top of the track on lap 16 to try and complete the pass. Despite Lennox pulling even with Fellows at the line on lap 17, Fellows was able to hold on to pick up his second win of the season at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway. Lennox settled for a close 2nd, Austin Howes finished 3rd, Brandon Dale started 7th and finished 4th, with Kibbe finishing in 5th.

Jeremy Pundt and John Oliver Jr. led the field to green in the 20 lap Donnellson Tire & Service IMCA Stock Car feature, with Pundt grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Oliver Jr. and Jason Cook. Oliver Jr. would then try and work under Pundt over the next 4 laps, with Pundt holding him off each lap. That was until lap 5, when Oliver Jr. finally made the pass to take over the top spot. Meanwhile Cook, Abe Huls, and David Brandies, who started 5th, joined the battle up front. The action would go two and even three wide several times, while Oliver Jr. pace the field out front. Huls who had tried the bottom to wrestle the lead from Oliver Jr. for several laps, decided to go to the top on lap 11. Using the momentum off the top of turn 4 Huls edged out Oliver Jr. on lap 13 to take over the lead. Only to have Oliver Jr. come back on the bottom to take the lead back on lap 14. Brandies would take the battle for the lead three wide on lap 17 to grab the top spot. Then coming to the white flag Huls once again used the momentum off the top of turn 4 to edge out the lead. But Brandies would get under him coming off turn 2 on the final lap and then held him off to score his first win of the season at the track. Huls settled for a close 2nd, Cook was 3rd, Oliver Jr. was 4th, with Pundt completing the top 5.

Up next was the 20 lap Budweiser IMCA Modified feature, with Levi Smith and Mitch Boles leading the field to green. But it was third place starter Dean McGee who grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Jeff Waterman, who started 7th, and Boles. McGee then held the top spot until lap 3, when Waterman slipped by to take over the lead. While Waterman set a very fast pace out front, Logan Anderson, who started 6th, and Colby Springsteen, who started 10th, were working their way towards the front. On lap 9 Anderson moved into second and one lap later, lap 10, Springsteen took over third. Anderson, who was working the top, then worked to hold off Springsteen, who was on the bottom, over the final laps. As Waterman built up a straight-away lead, and without a caution to bunch up the field, Waterman would go on to claim his second win in a row and fourth overall at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway. Springsteen got by Anderson for 2nd on the final lap, Anderson was 3rd, McGee was 4th, with Bill Roberts Jr. coming from 9th to finish in 5th.

The final feature to take to the track was the 20 lap Steffes Late Models, and when Darin Weisinger Jr. electing to go to the rear this would move Todd Frank up next to Brandon Savage. Frank used this move to his advantage, as he grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Ron Boyse, who started 5th, and Savage. The lead for Frank only lasted for 1 lap, as Boyse slipped under him coming off turn 4 to take over the top spot on lap 2. On lap 6 the action was slowed for the first and only time, as Weisinger Jr. spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Boyse jumped back out front, with Tommy Elston, who started 7th, and Frank close behind. Elston would try the bottom and top of the track over the final 13 laps to get the lead away from Boyse. But Boyse would hold him off to pick up his first win of the season at the track. Elston settled for 2nd, Sam Halstead started 6th and finished 3rd, Todd Frank was 4th, with Gunner Frank rounding out the top 5.

Coming up next at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway will be the Inaugural 305 Winged Nationals on Friday, June 22, being presented by Mohrfeld Electric and Hoenig Lawn Service. As there will be no racing on Friday, June 15th. The 305 Sprint Cars will be racing for $1,000 to win and $100 to start, in a draw / redraw format. Also in action will be the Steffes Late Models, Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, Donnellson Tire & Service IMCA Stock Cars, Discount Tire & Service IMCA SportMods, and Armstrong Tractor IMCA Sport Compacts.

Donnellson, IA (Friday, June 1, 2018) – It was a hot and sticky Friday night at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa, as J.J. Nichting and 101.7 The Bull helped to bring the action. But despite the heat that didn’t stop the driver’s from putting on some great racing action for the fans. At the end of the night five driver’s returned to victory lane, with the Discount Tire and Service IMCA SportMods steeling the show that produced a new winner for 2018.

In 2018 the Pepsi Lee County Speedway added the Hobby Stocks back onto the card to give the Bloomfield, Eldon, and Oskaloosa, Iowa driver’s a place to race on Friday nights. But so far this season the numbers have been very low, with that being the case again Friday night. Aaron Martin jumped out into the lead on lap 1 and then pulled away to claim his third win in a row at the track. Ricky Miller Jr. was 3rd, with Hank Billings making his debut and finishing in 3rd.

Up next was the 14 lap Armstrong Tractor IMCA Sport Compact feature, with Kenny Smith and Jake Dietrich leading the field to the green. Smith would take advantage of his starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Dietrich and Kimberly Abbott, who started 8th. While Smith paced the field out front the action behind him went two, three and even four wide at times, as driver’s tried to work themselves to the front. The action was slowed for the first time on lap 4, as debris in turn 3 brought out the yellow. On the restart debris in turn 3 again brought the yellow light back on. The following restart saw Abbott grab the top spot, with Mike Reu, who started 6th, and Barry Taft, who started 9th, close behind. Over the next 7 laps Taft tried to work around Reu for the runner up spot. But Reu was able to hold him off, that was until lap 13 when Taft finally made the move. Taft then worked to chase down Abbott over the final 2 laps, but she was able to hold on to pick up her second win in a row at the track. Taft settled for 2nd, Reu was 3rd, Dietrich was 4th, with Brandon Reu completing the top 5.

Adam Niekamp and Ron Kibbe made up the front row for the 20 lap Discount Tire & Service IMCA SportMod feature, with Niekamp edging out Kibbe at the line by inches to lead lap 1. The lead for Niekamp lasted for 2 laps, as Daniel Fellows slipped under him to take over the top spot on lap 3. One lap later, lap 4, Brandon Lennox, who started 8th, slipped under Fellows for the lead. Then after the lap was scored complete the first caution slowed the action. Kyle Hamelton spun in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Lennox moved back out front, with Fellows and Austen Becerra close behind. Hamelton would spin in turn 2 on lap 7 to bring out his second caution to end his night. Lennox once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Adam Birck, who started 7th, over taking Fellows for the runner up spot. Becerra, who was running third, had his run up front come to an end on lap 13 when he slowed to a stop in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Lennox jumped back out front, with Austin Howes, who started 9th, and Brandon Dale, who started 15th, now following Lennox. The action up front was slowed on lap 15, when Jeffrey DeLonjay and Kibbe got together in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. Lennox moved back out front on the restart, with Dale getting past Howes for second. But just after lap 16 was scored complete, the final caution of the race appeared to set up a two lap shoot out to the finish. This time Tony Johnson spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Dale would use the momentum off the top of the track in turn 4 to take the top spot away from Lennox. Dale then held on to claim his first win of the season at the track. Lennox was 2nd, Howes was 3rd, Fellows was 4th, with Brett Lowry coming from 10th to round out the top 5.

Next up to take to the track was the 20 lap Donnellson Tire & Service IMCA Stock Car feature, with Jason See and Chad Krogmeier leading the field to green. But it was third place starter Jeremy Pundt who edged out the lead on lap 1 over See and Abe Huls, who started 5th. Huls would work under Pundt to take over the top spot on lap 3. Three laps later, lap 6, the action was slowed when Randy Samberg spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Huls moved back out front, with Pundt, John Oliver Jr., and See battling for positions behind him. Huls then started to pull away from the battles going on behind him, when the final caution of the race appeared on lap 13. See, who was running 3rd, appeared to have lost an engine down the front stretch and slowed to a stop to bring out the yellow. Once again Huls grabbed the lead on the restart, with Pundt and Oliver Jr. close behind. While Pundt worked to hold off Oliver Jr. for the runner up spot, this allowed Huls to pull away to claim his second win of the the season at the track and became the first driver with a repeat win in the class in seven weeks of racing at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway. Pundt held on for 2nd, Oliver Jr. was 3rd, Jason Cook finished 4th, with Krogmeier rounding out the top 5.

Mitch Boles and Jeff Waterman brought the field to green in the 20 lap Budweiser IMCA Modified feature, with Waterman moving out front to lead lap 1 over Bill Roberts Jr. and Larry Herring. Waterman then set a fast pace out front, with Roberts Jr. and Herring trying to keep pace. But without a caution there was no stopping Waterman on this night, as he went on to win his third of the season at the track. Roberts Jr. was 2nd, Herring was 3rd, Boles was 4th, with Levi Smith coming home in 5th.

The final feature to take to the track on the night was the 20 lap Steffes Late Models, with Gunner Frank and Jeff Guengerich on the front row. Frank used his starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Guengerich and Ron Boyse. While Frank worked to hold off Guengerich for the top spot. Tommy Elston was using the middle to top groove to work himself into third on lap 4. Despite Guengerich trying to work under Frank over the final laps, Frank was able to hold on to pick up his second win of the season at the track and became the first repeat winner in the class at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway in six weeks of racing. Guengerich settled for 2nd, Elston was 3rd, Boyse was 4th, with Sam Halstead finishing in 5th.

Coming up next week Friday, June 8th at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway will be Mid-Season Championship Night, presented by Midwest Performance & Power, and Coors Light.
