Donnellson, IA (Sunday, October 21, 2012) – Mother nature provided a perfect evening for the final night, night two, of the 1st Annual Fall Extravaganza presented by Discount Tire and Service at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, IA. At the end of the night Josh Foster (Budweiser Modifieds), Jason Cook (Donnellton Tire Stock Cars), Cayden Carter (Shottenkirk Parts Express SportMods), Jake Wenig (Coor’s Light LCS Hobby Stocks), Dustin Griffiths (IMCA Hobby Stocks), and Adam Gates (Sunline Auto Parts Sport Compacts) took home the big checks in there respective feature events.
With 126 cars signed in on the final night of the Fall Extravaganza there were 12 heat races and 2 semis ran to help set the features in all six classes. After all qualifying events were ran, it was time for the features to take to the speedway.
The first feature up on the night was the 15 lap Sunline Auto Parts Sport Compacts, with Adam Gates and Skipp Dunker leading the field to the drop of the green flag. Gates would take advantage of his front row start to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Dunker and Michael Grossman. Just like he did in Saturday’s qualifying feature, Gates started to pull away from the battle for second when the field was slowed for the firs time on lap 8. Mike Hornung Jr. would spin in turn 4 to bring out the first caution of the event. On the restart Gates moved back out front, with Merv Chandler, who started 8th, slipping past Dunker for 2nd. But the action up front was slowed on lap 9, as Randy Foor spun coming off turn 4 to bring the yellow light back on. Gates once again jumped out into the lead on the restart, with Chandler, Dunker and John Whalen battling it out for 2nd. Gates would pull away from the field over the final laps to pick up the win and the $400 top prize. Chandler won the battle for 2nd, Dunker was 3rd, Whalen was 4th, with Josh Barnes coming from 14th to round out the top 5.
