DONNELLSON, Iowa (June 21, 2012) – It was a clean sweep for Matt Sutton of Macomb, Illinois Thursday night at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa. He led every lap for his fourth career victory at the 3/8-mile oval in Brockway Mechanical & Roofing Sprint Invaders competition.
Sutton won his heat, then drew a starting spot outside of row one for the Dash. He went on to win that, and drew a one for the feature, setting himself up on the pole.
Tyler Blank shot to the lead on the first try at a start, but it was called back when Matt Krieger tipped over.
Sutton protected the low side on the second attempt, and pulled away. Things went green until a spin by Harold Pohren collected Jordan Goldesberry on lap six. On the restart, Sutton led Blank, Tony Shilling, Russ Hall and Justin Parrish.
