Nurses show your work ID to get in for $5, party in the pits after the races
DONNELLSON, Iowa (April 30, 2012) – With the racing season finally underway, this Friday night brings the first special event of the year to Lee County Speedway.
In fact, it will be a well-rounded night of racing action and post-race fun!
Tri-State Speed Review hosts the night’s activities, which includes Nurses Night! All nurses who come to the track with their work ID will receive $5 grandstand admission. This week honors nursing, nationally, so we at Lee County Speedway felt like it would be at least a small way to honor a field that does not get nearly enough recognition!
Also, Buffalo Wild Wings will have their trailer on hand to serve up some goodies, including boneless wings, and Dan the Man DJ service will be on hand following the races to party it up in the pits!
As part of the fun, Dirt, Dust and Speed will be recording the racing action and in turn playing Friday’s races on the two 50” big screens that BWW has on their trailer! So you can come to pits after the races, enjoy some good food, listen to some great music and watch the races that just concluded on the big screens! How much more could you ask for than that?
Oh – one more thing – to go along with the food, music and fun there will be adult beverages and great Pepsi products available for purchase as well!
All five normal classes will be in racing action this week, including Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, Donnellson Tire IMCA Stock Cars, Shottenkirk Parts Express IMCA Sport Mods, Coors Light IMCA Hobby Stocks and Sunline Auto Parts IMCA Sport Compacts.
Racing action will begin at 7:30 p.m., with grandstand gates opening at 5:30 p.m. and hot laps are at 7 p.m. Pit Gates will open at 5 p.m.
Grandstand admission is $9 for adults, $7 for seniors, $5 for students 11-17 and children 10 and under are free. Pit passes are $25.
At Lee County Speedway we were lucky enough to have two great photographers at the track, Friday! Dennis Krieger is the track photographer and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org while Larry Wright was also on hand. Some of his pics are shown below as well as his contact information! There will be more pics from both available here soon! Please enjoy!

DONNELLSON, Iowa (Friday, April 27, 2012) – New owners Dave and Von Sapp, with promoter Dwain Hulett, were finally able to get the 2012 season started on Friday night at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, IA. Despite mother natures attempts before and during the night to rain on the PEPSI season opening points night, all events were able to be completed with the final checkered flag being waved at 10:05pm.
The Budweiser IMCA Modifieds 20 lap feature was the first one to take to the track, with Tyler Cale and Brandon Savage drawing the front row for the event. Cale took advantage of his front row start to grab the lead on lap 1 over Brandon Banks and Ryan Cook. The first and only caution of the event came out on the completion of lap 2, as Derek Hamm spun his machine in turn 2. On the restart Cale moved back out into the lead, with Cook and Josh Foster, who started 9th, battling for second. Cale would go on to lead all 20 laps to take the win. Foster would come home in 2nd, Cook was 3rd, Banks was 4th, with Jeff Waterman coming home in 5th.
