PostHeaderIcon Sport Mod, Stock Car payout increased on Bud Night at LCS

Dunker Concrete, Discount Tire and Service step forward to add money to ‘support classes’ during three class show

DONNELLSON, Iowa (June 19, 2012) – Lee County Speedway is proud to announce that Dunker Concrete, Quincy, Ill., has stepped up to add money to the Sport Mod feature event for this Thursday’s Sport Mod feature, during Bud Night.

Budweiser hosts their annual party in the pits, while LCS hosts the Brockway Mechanical and Roofing Sprint Invaders, Shottenkirk Parts Express IMCA Sport Mods and Donnellson Tire IMCA Stock Cars.

With the addition of the money from Dunker Concrete the Sport Mod event will pay $400 to win and $250 for second. Tenth place will pay the previous advertised $100, while the event will pay $75 to start.

Discount Tire and Service, Keokuk, has come on board to add $75 to first place in the IMCA Stock Car feature event, Thursday, during Bud Night at Lee County Speedway.

That means that first place will pay $400-to-win for the Stock Cars, after Ryan Clark, the voice of Lee County Speedway, chipped in another $25 to match the Sport Mod payout. Discount Tire and Service will also add $50 to second place and $25 to third place.

On top of that, Discount Tire will also give one lucky Stock Car driver a free tire. Owner Jim Gillenwater will be running in the Sport Mod event. Whatever place he finishes in the Sport Mod race the corresponding Stock Car finisher will get the tire. That means if Gillenwater finishes 4th then the 4th place finisher in the Stock Car feature will get a free tire.

Again, Lee County Speedway would like to thank Dunker Concrete and Discount Tire and Service for making the contributions to the two respective purses today.

Both the Stock Cars and Sport Mods will be racing a draw/redraw show for national, regional and state IMCA points. Pit Passes are $25.

PostHeaderIcon Repeat winners at the Lee County Speedway with exception of Smith

DONNELLSON, Iowa (Friday, June 8, 2012) – It was Arrowhead Bowl Fan Appreciation Night at the the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, IA, with all fans getting in for just $5 and a candy dash for the kids at intermission. The weather provided a perfect night for racing with four repeat winners Tyler Cale (IMCA Modifieds), Matt Greiner (IMCA Stock Cars), Jim Gillenwater (IMCA SportMods) and Jake Wenig (LCS Hobby Stocks) in victory lane, while Darin Smith (IMCA Sport Compacts) was a new winner on the night.

The first feature on the night was the 15 lap Donnellson Tire IMCA Stock Cars, with Derek St. Clair and Cale Samberg on the front row. Samberg would take advantage of his front row starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over John Oliver Jr. and St. Clair. While Samberg worked to hold back Oliver Jr., Matt Greiner, who started 7th, was working his way towards the front. But the action up front was slowed for the first and only caution of the event on lap 5. Joe Gerdes spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Samberg jumped back out front, but now had Greiner on his back bumper. Samberg, who was working the top of the track, and Greiner, who was on the bottom, raced the next 9 laps side-by-side with Samberg edging Greiner out at the line each lap. But Greiner would come off of turn 4 for the white flag and was able to edge out in front of Samberg to take over the top spot on lap 14. Greiner then held off Samberg on the final lap to claim his third win of the season at the track. Samberg was 2nd, Oliver Jr. was 3rd, Jeff Mueller came from 8th to finish in 4th, with Abe Huls rounding out the top 5.
