by Brian Neal
Donnellson, IA (Friday, April 26, 2013) -  After two straight weeks of rain outs the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa, was able to get back into racing action on Farmington Tax and Accounting and Donnellson Tire Night. The Budweiser IMCA Modifieds and Coor’s Light IMCA Hobby Stocks opened their 2013 points seasons, with Josh Foster (Modifieds) and Nick Ulin (Hobby Stocks) picking up the wins. Also picking up wins on the night was Jason Cook (Donnellson Tire IMCA Stock Cars), Brett Lowry (Shottenkirk Parts Express IMCA SportMods), and Brandon Lambert (Sunline Auto Parts IMCA Sport Compacts).The first feature up on the night was the 12 lap Sunline Auto Parts IMCA Sport Compacts, with Brandon Lambert and Richard Bank leading the field to the green. Lambert would take advantage of his front row start to grab the lead on lap 1 over Austen Becerra and Bank. The action was slowed on lap 2 when Matt Moore got into Bank and caused him to roll in turn 4 to bring out the red. The wreck also collected the cars of Josh Barnes and Skipp Dunker. On the restart Lambert jumped back out into the lead, with Becerra and Michael Grossman, who started 7th, battling for 2nd. Grossman would slip past Lambert on lap 5 to take over the top spot, only to lose it to Becerra on lap 6. But Lambert wouldn’t go down easy, as he battled back on lap 7 to grab the lead back. Becerra then came back to grab the lead away on lap 8 and looked to be heading for a win, when he started to slow on lap 11. Lambert would inherit the lead back and then held on over the final lap to pick up his first win of the season at the track. Brandon Reu came from 5th to finish in 2nd, Dunker recovered from his lap 2 involvement in the wreck to come back to 3rd, Kimberly Abbott was 4th, with Becerra holding on to finish in 5th.
