Defending Lee County Speedway Track Champions Foster, Greiner, Gillenwater return to the Winner’s Circle
DONNELLSON, Iowa (Friday, May 11, 2012) – Mother nature finally provided a great night for racing at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, as it was DOC360 / Pepsi Next night at the track. The fans were treated to some great racing action and to top the night off they were provided with a FREE can of DOC306, diet DOC360 or Pepsi Next on their way out the gate, thanks to Memphis (Memphis, MO) Bottling Company.
The first feature to take to the track was the 20 lap Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, with Rich Smith and Brandon Savage on the front row. Smith would take advantage of his front row start to jump out into the lead on the drop of the green flag. The first caution of the race would come out on lap 2, as Paul Nelson came to a stop in turn four with an engine fire. On the restart Smith again grabbed the lead, with Todd Hansen and Josh Foster, who started 7th, battling it out for second. But the battle up front was slowed on lap 3, when Brad Ford came to a stop in turn 4 to bring the yellow out. Smith again jumped back out front on the restart, with Foster getting around Hansen for second. The final caution of the race would appear on the track on lap 4, as Brandon Rothzen suddenly slowed in turn 1 which caused Kyle Hill and Derek Hamm to get together. On the restart Smith moved back out front, with Foster and Hansen following close behind. Foster tried on every lap for the next 9 laps to get around Smith, as Hansen followed in third ready to pounce when ether made a mistake. Foster would get the break he needed on lap 13, as Smith jumped the cushion in turn four to allow Foster to get under him going into turn 1. Foster would exit turn two with the lead on lap 14 and then held on to it over the final 6 laps to pick up the win. Smith settled for 2nd, Hansen was 3rd, Tyler Cale came from 8th to finish in 4th, with Jeff Waterman charging from his 16th place starting spot to round out the top 5.

DONNELLSON, Iowa (May 12, 2012) — The ownership and management of Lee County Speedway would like to apologize to the drivers, who supported us last night, for the quality of the racetrack.
While we understand it is only our second race event, the heaviness of the track was not intended and will, to the best of our ability, not happen again.
We would like to thank each and everyone who attended the event last night, and hope that you allow us the opportunity to redeem ourselves with track prep. Also, a big thank you goes out to all the cars and drivers, who on several occasions returned to the track to help us re-pack the track after track prep.
It is obvious that without you, we can not put on a quality show, and having said that we will do our best to improve on the conditions of last night.
Again thank you to all the fans, drivers and employees who came to help make last night a good night of racing, on a track that wasn’t up to the standards we have already set for ourselves.
Hopefully we will see each one of you again next Friday night!
