PostHeaderIcon Hogan, Oliver Jr., Gower, Koontz, and Abbott Crowned 2015 Champions at the Lee County Speedway

While Hogan, Mueller, Anderson, Griffiths, and Lambert Score Feature Wins
by Brian Neal
Donnellson, IA (Friday, August 28, 2015) – The final points night of the 2015 season at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa was held on Friday, as PEPSI Memphis Bottling Co. presented season championship night. At the end of the nights events five new track champions were crowned.

The first feature to take to the track was the 15 lap Armstrong Tractors IMCA Sport Compacts, with Kenny Smith and Kevin Garrett leading the field to the drop of the green flag. But it was fourth place starter Darin Weisinger Jr. who grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Smith and Mike Reu. While Weisinger Jr. paced the field out front, the battles going on behind him went three and even four wide at times. Brandon Lambert, who started 5th, emerged from the pack to grab second on lap 2 and then went to work on Weisinger Jr. for the top spot. Using the top of the track coming off turn four on lap 3, Lambert would edge Weisinger Jr. at the line by inches to grab the lead away. Lambert then started to pull away from the battle for the runner up spot going on behind him. As Weisinger Jr., Mike Reu, Brandon Reu, who started 8th, Josh Barnes, who started 7th, and Kimberly Abbott, who started 9th, all raced two wide at times for that spot. But Brandon Reu’s run up front came to an end on lap 11 when he pulled off with engine troubles, and then was followed one lap later when Weisinger Jr. pulled off with troubles. This would allow Lambert to pull away in a caution free race to claim his first feature win of the season at the track. Abbott won the battle for 2nd and in the process picked up her first track championship at the track, Barnes was 3rd, Mike Reu was 4th, with Brent Hartley rounding out the top 5.

Up next the was the 20 lap Shottenkirk of Ft. Madison IMCA SportMod feature, with Jeremy Whitlock and Austin Howes making up the front row. Howes would take advantage of his front row start to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over John Oliver Jr., who started 6th, and Logan Anderson. Howes, who was working the top of the track, then had to work to hold off Anderson, who was working the bottom, over the next 3 laps. But coming off turn four to complete lap 4, Anderson was able to edge out Howes at the line to take over the top spot. Anderson then started to pull away from the battle for second between Howes, Oliver Jr., Brandon Dale, who started 7th, Austen Becerra, who started 5th, and Tony Dunker, who started 9th. The field was brought back to Anderson’s back bumper on lap 10, as the first caution of the race waved. Brandon Ruffcorn would spin in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Anderson moved back out front, with Oliver Jr. in second and Becerra going from 5th to 3rd. Coming off turn four to complete lap 13, Oliver Jr. would look under Anderson for the lead. But Anderson was able to hold him off. That was until Oliver Jr. was able to make the low groove pay off on lap 14, as he slipped under Anderson for the top spot. The side-by-side action for the lead was slowed on lap 16, when Taylor Lear spun in turn 1 to bring out the caution. Oliver Jr. would jump back out front on the restart, with Anderson and Becerra racing side-by-side for second. Another lap scored complete, lap 17, produced the third and final caution of the race, as Colton Bowman spun in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Anderson went to the bottom of the track to slip past Oliver Jr. coming off turn 2 to grab the lead away. Anderson then held on over the final 2 laps to pick up his second win of the season at the track, and third in a row over the past week at three different tracks. Becerra would come home in 2nd, Dale was 3rd, Howes was 4th, with Dunker finishing in 5th. Joey Gower, who started 10th and finished 6th, claimed his first track championship at the track.

Brandon Symmonds and Dustin Griffiths made up the front row for the 14 lap Coors Light IMCA Hobby Stock feature, with Griffiths grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Mike Kincaid and Garrett Eilander. While Griffiths paced the field out front, Eilander, Dane Blozovich, who started 7th, and Kincaid raced side-by-side at times for the runner up spot. But Kincaid’s run up front came to an end on lap 10, when he spun in turn 2 to bring out the only caution of the race. On the restart Griffiths jumped back out front, while Blozovich and Eilander raced side-by-side for second. Contact between the two down the front stretch would result in Blozovich pulling in with a flat tire. Over the next three laps Eilander would look under Griffiths for the lead, with Griffiths able to hold him off each time at the line. Going into turn three on the final lap Eilander was able to get under Griffiths, but Griffiths would use the momentum off the top of turn four to edge out Eilander at the line for his sixth win of the season at the track. Eilander settled for 2nd, Symmonds was 3rd, Brandon Potts started 6th and finished 4th, with Rob Wilsey coming home in 5th. Kevin Koontz would finish 7th, which was good enough to secure his first track championship at the track.

Up next was the 20 lap Donnellson Tire and Service IMCA Stock Car feature, with Jim Redmann and Andrew Hustead leading the field to the green flag. Redmann would use his front row starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Hustead and Corey Strothman. Hustead, who was using the top of the track, used the momentum off turn four to take over the top spot from Redmann on lap 4. While the two battled out front for the lead, Jeff Mueller, who started 8th, Damon Murty, who started 10th, and Strothman raced three wide for the second spot on laps 6 and 7. The action up front was slowed for the first time on lap 8, as Jake Wenig spun in turn two to bring out the yellow. On the restart Murty went to the bottom of the track in turn two to grab the lead, with Mueller following him into second. Murty, who worked the top of the track, and Mueller, who worked the bottom, raced side-by-side for the top spot over the next six laps. But when Murty got into the guardrail in turn 3 on lap 15, this allowed Mueller to slip under him for the lead. One lap later, lap 16, Hustead got into Abe Huls and got him sideways in turn 4, which caused Jason Cook and Jeremy Pundt to collide to bring out the caution. On the restart Mueller moved back out front, with Murty and Redmann racing side-by-side for second. Mueller was able to hold off Murty over the final four laps to claim his second win in a row at the track. Murty settled for 2nd, Strothman was 3rd, Redmann was 4th, with John Oliver Jr. coming home 5th to secure his first track championship at the track.

The final feature to take to the track was the 20 lap Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, with Blake Woodruff and Dean McGee making up the front row. McGee would use his front row starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Bill Roberts Jr. and Woodruff. The action up front was slowed for the first and only time on lap 6, as Eric Glass spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Roberts Jr. would use the bottom of the track to slip under McGee to grab the top spot. Going into turn 3 to complete lap 12, Scott Hogan, who started 7th, Roberts Jr. and Jeff Waterman, who started 5th, raced three wide for the lead. Waterman would use the momentum off the top of turn 4 to lead lap 12. Hogan, who was working the bottom of the track, tried to slip under Waterman over the next 2 laps, But Waterman was able to hold him off each lap. That was until lap 15, when Hogan was able to clear Waterman for the lead. Hogan then went on to lead the final 5 laps to pick up his first win of the season at the track, which also helped him to secure his first track championship at the track. Waterman was 2nd, Darin Duffy started 10th and finished 3rd, Roberts Jr. was 4th, with Carter VanDenBerg coming home in 5th.

The next event coming up at the Lee County Speedway will be the 4th Annual Fall Extravaganza on Friday and Saturday October 9th and 10th.

PostHeaderIcon Track Champions to be Crowned Friday

Donnellson, IA (Thursday, August 27, 2015) – It’s hard to believe that it is that time of the year, but this Friday, August 28th will be PEPSI Memphis Bottling Co. season championship night at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa. At the end of the night the Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, Donnellson Tire and Service IMCA Stock Cars, Shottenkirk of Ft. Madison IMCA SportMods, Coors Light IMCA Hobby Stocks, and Armstrong Tractors IMCA Sport Compacts track champions will be crowned for the 2015 season.

Scott Hogan currently sits atop the Budweiser IMCA Modifieds points standings, but he only holds a slim 4 point lead over Carter VanDenBerg, who is in his first year in the Modified class. All Hogan has to do is finish 3rd or better in Friday nights feature event and he will secure his first ever track championship at the Lee County Speedway. But if VanDenBerg happens to finish 4 spots in front of Hogan, then they would tie for the points lead. The tie breaker would go to VanDenBerg, as he has won 3 features at the track in 2015 compared to Hogan going winless. The defending track champion, Jeff Waterman sits third in the standings, followed by Bill Roberts Jr. in 4th, and Tyler Groenendyk rounding out the top 5. Blake Woodruff only leads Jerad Fuller by 4 points in the battle for 6th in points. Larry McConnell sits 8th, with Dean McGee in 9th. The battle for the top 10 in points is only separated by 7 points, as Andrew Schroeder currently holds down the 10th spot. But if he doesn’t race on Friday, this will give Kelly Buckallew an opportunity to move into 10th.

The Donnellson Tire and Service IMCA Stock Car points leader John Oliver Jr. only has to finish 12th or better in Friday nights feature event, and he will lock up the 2015 track title. Even if Jeremy Pundt, who is second in points, would happen to win the feature and Oliver Jr. finish 12th, which would make them tied, the tie breaker would go to Oliver Jr. As Oliver Jr. had won 3 features to what would be Pundt’s first of the season at the track. But Pundt also has another battle, as he only holds a slim 1 point lead over Corey Strothman in the battle for 2nd in points. Abe Huls and Andrew Hustead are tied for the 4th spot in points, with the highest finisher in Friday nights feature securing that spot in points. Jason Cook sits 6th, Ray Raker is 7th, with Jake Wenig in 8th. Nathan Wood, who is currently 9th, and Jim Redmann, who is 10th, are separated by 8 points in the battle for the 9th spot in points.

All Joey Gower has to do is take the green flag in his heat race and he will secure his first ever Shottenkirk of Ft. Madison IMCA SportMod track championship at the Lee County Speedway. Brandon Dale is 2nd, with rookie SportMod driver Austen Becerra 3rd in points. Robert Gould, who is 4th in points, only has a 4 point lead over Adam Birck in the battle for 4th in points. Kyle Hill is 6th in points. While Tony Dunker and Brandon Ruffcorn are tied for 7th in points, as the highest finisher in Friday nights feature will secure that spot. Austin Howes sits 9th in points. While the battle for 10th in points will be determined by who shows up to race. Phillip Cossel had shoulder surgery several weeks ago and hasn’t been able to pilot the #15 machine, which John Oliver Jr. has been driving since his absence, sits 10th in points only 3 points ahead of Bobby Six. But with Six’s work schedule he hasn’t been able to race on Friday nights over the past several weeks. So only time will tell who will show up to race for the final spot in the top 10.

Kevin Koontz doesn’t even have to show up on Friday night, as he has already locked up his first ever Coors Light IMCA Hobby Stock track title at the Lee County Speedway. Defending track champion Dustin Griffiths sits in 2nd, but only has a 3 point lead over Brandon Symmonds for that spot. If Symmonds would happen to finish 3 spots ahead of Griffiths in Friday nights feature, that would make them tied for the runner up spot in points. But with Griffiths winning 5 features on the season at the track compared to Symmonds’ one feature win, the tied breaker would go to Griffiths. Nick Ulin sits 4th in points, with Brandon Potts 5th in points. Clayton Webster holds down the 6th spot, but is only 3 points ahead of Sierra Wilsey, who sits 7th in points. Dane Blozovich is 8th in points, with Leah Wroten in 9th. The battle for the top 10 in points will come down to Mike Kincaid, Robert Fite and John Irwin, as those three are separated by 6 points.

All Kimberly Abbott has to do is finish 15th or better in Friday nights Armstrong Tractor IMCA Sport Compact feature and she will secure her first ever track championship at the Lee County Speedway. Brandon Reu who sits 2nd in points, 15 behind Abbott, only has a slim 2 point lead over Josh Barnes for the battle for 2nd. If Barnes happens to finish 2 spots ahead of Reu in Friday nights feature, this would make the two tied for 2nd in points. But the tie breaker would go to Barnes, who has won 5 features at the track this season, compared to Reu going winless. Mike Reu currently sits 4th in points, but only by 3 points ahead of Brandon Lambert, who is 4th. William Michel is 6th in points, followed by Darin Weisinger Jr. in 7th, Trent Orwig in 8th, and John Girdley in 9th. The final spot in the top 10 in points will be determined between Kyle Hamelton and Kenny Smith, as those two are only separated by 2 points.

Friday nights events will be ran just like any other IMCA weekly racing event, with the heat races inverted by the drivers points average. Then those who qualify out of the heat races being inverted by their point average for the feature. So make sure you come out to enjoy a great night of racing, and see who will be crowned the 2015 Track Champions.

Gates on Friday will open at 5:30 pm, with hot laps at 7 pm, and racing at 7:30 pm. Grandstand admission will be adults $10, seniors (60+) $9, students (11-17) $5, and kids 10 & under FREE! Pit passes will be $25, ages (7-13) $15, and ages 6 & under $10.

PostHeaderIcon Mueller and Blozovich Score First Wins of the Season at the Lee County Speedway

by Brian Neal
Donnellson, IA (Friday, August 21, 2015) – After taking two weeks off, the racing action returned to the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa on Friday. The night would mark the first visit of the season by the Sprint Invaders, as the first event was rained out earlier in the season. Presenting the nights action would be Mohrfeld Electric of Fort Madison, Iowa. At the end of the nights activities there would be two new winners and three repeat winners on the season standing in victory lane.

The first feature to take to the track was the 14 lap Coors Light IMCA Hobby Stocks, with Kevin Koontz and Brandon Symmonds leading the field to the drop of the green flag. But just as the green flag was waved the caution light would come on, as Clayton Webster spun in turn 2 and collected Sierra Wilsey to bring out the yellow. On the restart Dustin Griffiths, who started 4th, would edge out Symmonds at the line by inches to grab the lead on lap 1. Griffiths then went on to lead the next 6 laps, when he started to slow with mechanical troubles. This would hand the lead over to Symmonds on lap 7. One lap later, lap 8, Dane Blozovich, who started 9th, would slip under Symmonds coming off turn 4 to take over the top spot. Blozovich then pulled away over the final 5 laps to pick up his first win of the season at the track. Symmonds was 2nd, Mike Kincaid finished 3rd, Koontz was 4th, with Griffiths credited with 5th.

Up next was the 20 lap Shottenkirk of Ft. Madison IMCA SportMods, with Brandon Ruffcorn and John Oliver Jr. making up the front row. Oliver Jr. would take advantage of his front row starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Ruffcorn and Austen Becerra. Ruffcorn’s run up front came to an end on lap 3, when he spun in turn 2 to bring out the first caution of the event. On the restart Oliver Jr. moved back out front, but now had Tony Dunker, who started 5th, and Brandon Lennox, who started 6th, glued to his back bumper. Dunker, who was working the bottom of the track, would edge out Oliver Jr. at the line on lap 6 to take over the top spot. The two would then race side-by-side for the lead over the next 8 laps. As Oliver Jr. was credited with leading lap 11, Dunker would lead lap 12, with Oliver Jr. scored as the leader on lap 13. Then just after the completion of lap 13 the second caution of the race appeared to slow the battle up front. Ruffcorn and Dakota Anderson would spin in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Dunker would slip under Oliver Jr. to grab the lead away. At the same time Brayton Carter, who started 10th, went to the very top of the track to slip past Oliver Jr. to move into second. One lap later, lap 14, the third and final caution appeared to slow the action up front. This time Logan Anderson spun in turn 2 and collected Austin Howes, and Robert Gould to bring out the yellow. Once again Dunker moved back out front on the restart, with Carter and Lennox close behind. Carter, who was working the top of the track, would take over the top spot from Dunker on lap 16. Carter then held off a last lap challenge from Lennox and Dunker to claim his second win of the season at the track. Lennox settled for 2nd, Dunker was 3rd, Joey Gower started 7th and finished 4th, with Oliver Jr. holding on for 5th.

Alyssa Steele and Kenny Smith led the field to the green flag in the 15 lap Armstrong Tractors IMCA Sport Compact feature, with Steele grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Brandon Lambert and Josh Barnes, who started 6th. Just after the completion of lap 1 the first and only caution of the race appeared, as debris down the front stretch slowed the action. On the restart Steele moved back out front over Lambert and Barnes. Steele then held the lead until lap 5, when Lambert went to the top of the track to grab the top spot away. While Lambert worked to hold off Barnes over the next 7 laps, Kimberly Abbott, who started 8th, was working her way towards the front. On lap 12 Abbott would slip under Barnes to grab the runner up spot and then went to work on Lambert for the lead. Coming off turn four for the white flag Abbott would use the bottom of the track to edge out Lambert at the line for the lead. Abbott then held on over the final lap to pick up her second win of the season at the track. Lambert settled for 2nd, Barnes was 3rd, Brandon Reu started 7th and finished 4th, with Mike Reu rounding out the top 5.

Up next was the 20 lap Donnellson Tire and Service IMCA Stock Car feature, with Jake Wenig and Ryan Cook making up the front row. Ryan Cook would take advantage of his front row starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Jeremy Pundt and Wenig. Just after the completion of lap 1 the first and only caution of the race appeared, as Abe Huls came to a stop in turn 4 with a right front and rear flat tires. On the restart Ryan Cook moved back out front, with Wenig and Jeff Mueller, who started 5th, both over taking Pundt for the second and third spots. Ryan Cook then had to work to hold off Mueller over the next 7 laps. When Mueller slipped under Ryan Cook coming off turn 4 on lap 8 to take over the top spot. Mueller then pulled away over the final 12 laps to score his first win of the season at the track. Pundt recovered to finish in 2nd, Jason Cook started 10th and passed 7 cars to come home in 3rd, John Oliver Jr. started 7th and finished 4th, with Ryan Cook holding on for 5th.

The final feature to take to the track was the 20 lap Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, with Larry McConnell and Dean McGee leading the field to the green flag. But it was fifth place starter Jerad Fuller who quickly moved to the front to lead lap 1 over Carter VanDenBerg, who started 7th, and McGee. Just after the completion of lap 1 the first caution of the race appeared, as Levi Smith spun in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. On the restart VanDenBerg would use the top of the track to edge out Fuller at the line to grab the lead away. VanDenBerg then started to put some distance on the battle behind him, until the second and final caution came out on lap 7. This time McConnell spun in turn 2 to bring the yellow out. Once again VanDenBerg jumped back out front on the restart, with Scott Hogan, who started 8th, over taking Fuller for the runner up spot. While VanDenBerg worked to hold off Hogan for the lead, Jeff Waterman would close in on the top two by lap 17 to set up a three car battle. But VanDenBerg wouldn’t make any mistakes over the final 3 laps, and went on to score his third win of the season at the track. Hogan settled for 2nd, Waterman was 3rd, Fuller was 4th, with Bill Roberts Jr. rounding out the top 5.
