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.

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.

PostHeaderIcon Waterman and Cook Get Their First Wins of the Season at the Lee County Speedway

by Brian Neal
Donnellson, IA (Friday, July 31, 2015) – A busy night, both on and off the track, was held Friday night at the Lee County Speedway, as Hy-Vee, TSS Inc., Darkside Tint & Graphix, and Driftwood 13 Bar all presented the nights action. Also B&B Propane held a customer appreciation night at the track. The on track action produced two new winners and three repeat winners on the season.

The first feature to take to the track was the 14 lap Coors Light IMCA Hobby Stocks, with Brandon Symmonds, who was moved to the pole when Kevin Koontz scratched, and Clayton Webster leading the field to the green flag. But it was fourth place starter Dustin Griffiths who moved out front to lead lap 1 over Nick Ulin and Symmonds. While Griffiths set the pace out front Ulin, Symmonds and Brandon Potts had a three car battle going for second. The first and only caution of the race appeared on lap 8 to slow the action up front. Sierra Wilsey would spin in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Griffiths jumped back out front, with Ulin and Symmonds close behind. Griffiths would pull away over the final 6 laps to pick up his fifth win of the season at the track. Ulin was 2nd, Potts was 3rd, Webster was 4th, with Wilsey recovering from her spin to come back up to finish in 5th.

Up next was the 20 lap Shottenkirk of Ft. Madison IMCA SportMod feature, with John Oliver Jr., who was moved to the pole when Dakota Anderson elected to go to the rear, and Brandon Ruffcorn leading the field to green. Just as the green flag waved the caution light would come on, as Anderson slowed to a stop down the front stretch to bring out the yellow. On the restart Oliver Jr. moved out front to lead lap 1 over Brandon Dale and Ruffcorn. With Oliver Jr. out front, the battle for the runner up spot involved three cars racing two and even three wide at times. The action up front was slowed for the first and only time on lap 10, when debris in turn 4 brought out the yellow. Once again Oliver Jr. jumped back out front on the restart, with Tony Dunker, who started 8th, and Dale close behind. Dunker tried to get past Oliver Jr. for the lead over the next 4 laps, when Joey Gower, who started 10th, moved in to make it a three car battle for the lead. Coming out of turn 4 on lap 17 Gower went to the bottom of the track to slip past Oliver Jr. for the lead. Gower then held on over the final 3 laps to claim his fourth win of the season at the track. Dunker used a last lap pass to go from 4th to finish 2nd, Oliver Jr. was 3rd, Dale was 4th, with Brandon Lennox coming from 9th to finish in 5th.

Kenny Smith and Trent Orwig made up the front row for the 15 lap Armstrong Tractor IMCA Sport Compact feature, with Orwig taking advantage of his front row start to grab the lead on lap 1 over Mike Reu, who started 6th, and Brandon Lambert. Orwig set the pace out front, while Brandon Reu, who started 8th, and Josh Barnes, who started 7th, were working their way towards the front. Barnes would slip under Orwig coming out of turn 4 on lap 6 to take over the top spot, with Brandon Reu following him into second two laps later. Brandon Reu then followed in Barnes’ tracks over the final 7 laps of a caution free race to settled for 2nd. Barnes win was his fifth of the season at the track. Mike Reu was 3rd, Lambert was 4th, with Kimberly Abbott finishing 5th after starting in 9th.

Up next was the Donnellson Tire and Service IMCA Stock Car feature, with Ryan Cook and Andrew Hustead leading the field to the drop of the green flag. Hustead took advantage of his starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Cook and Ray Raker. Cook used the bottom of the track to slip under Hustead to lead lap 2. The action up front was slowed for the first time on lap 4, when Derrick Agee spun in turn 1 and collected Beau Taylor to bring out the yellow. On the restart Jeff Mueller, who started 9th, used the bottom of the track to take over the top spot, leaving Jason Cook and Ryan Cook battling for second. The second caution of the race appeared on lap 6, when Hustead spun in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. Mueller once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Jason Cook and David Brandies, who started 10th, battling for second. Brandies would over take Jason Cook for the runner up spot on lap 8, and then set his sights on Mueller for the lead. The battle up front was slowed for the third time on lap 13, when John Oliver Jr. got into Corey Strothman while battling for fourth, which caused Strothman to spin in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Mueller jumped back out front, with Brandies glued to his back bumper. Anther lap scored complete, lap 14, produced another caution, as Cole Simmons, who started 14th, got into Jeremy Pundt while battling for fifth. Pundt would spin in turn 2 to bring out the caution, while Simmons went pit side with a right front flat. Once again Mueller moved out front on the restart, with Brandies and Jason Cook following. Brandies tried to get under Mueller over the next 4 laps, when disaster struck the top 2 cars on lap 19. Brandies was able to slip under Mueller coming out of turn 2 to grab the lead going into turn 3. But Mueller would get into the left rear of Brandies coming off turn 4, as the two cars got stuck together to bring out the caution. Jason Cook inherited the lead on the green-white-checkered overtime finish, and then held on to claim his first win of the season at the track. Strothman recovered from his spin on lap 13 to make a last lap pass to finish 2nd, Jim Lynch started 11th and finished 3rd, Oliver Jr. recovered from his involvement in the lap 13 caution to come back up to finish 4th, with Raker coming home in 5th.

The final feature to take to the track on the night was the 20 lap Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, with Larry McConnell and Blake Woodruff on the front row. Woodruff would take advantage of his starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Dean McGee and Bill Roberts Jr. The action up front was slowed for the first time on lap 4, when Kelly Buckallew spun in turn 2 to bring out the caution. On the restart Woodruff moved back out front, with Tyler Groenendyk, who started 8th, over taking Roberts Jr. for the runner up spot. Woodruff, who was up top, then tried to hold off Groenendyk, who was on the bottom, but Groenendyk would slip under Woodruff coming off turn 4 to take over the top spot on lap 7. At the same time Scott Hogan, who started 9th, used the bottom groove to go from 4th to 2nd. Coming off turn 4 on lap 9 Hogan was able to slip under Groenendyk to take the lead away. Just as Hogan started to pull away, the second and final caution of the race appeared on lap 15. McConnell would spin in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Hogan moved back out front, with Jeff Waterman, who started 6th, over taking Groenendyk for the runner up spot. Going into turn 1 after the completion of lap 17, Hogan got sideways and fell from the lead to 4th. This would give Waterman the lead, with Carter VanDenBerg, who started 7th, over taking the second spot. Waterman then held off a last lap challenge from VanDenBerg to pick up his first win of the season at the track. VanDenBerg settled for 2nd, Greonendyk was 3rd, Hogan was 4th, with Robert Jr. holding on for 5th.
