by Brian Neal
Donnellson, IA (Friday, May 17, 2013) – After another two week lay off thanks to mother nature, the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, IA was able to get back to racing on a beautiful night. The night featured the 5th Annual Brian Hetrick Memorial for the Sebastian Sandblasting 305 Sprints, thanks in part by Randall’s Performance and Holtkamp’s Trailer Repair. The regular weekly racing action was sponsored by Darkside Tint & Graphix and Driftwood 13 Bar, who also provided the T.A. Tire & Auto Jr. Fan Club kids with some prizes.

The night would start off with the 12 lap Sunline Auto Parts IMCA Sport Compact feature, with Jacob Tournear and Josh Barnes leading the field to the drop of the green flag. Barnes would take advantage of his front row starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1, followed closely by Brandon Lambert and Bradley Stevenson. The first caution of the event would wave on the completion of lap 1, as debris in turns one and two slowed the field down. On the restart Barnes jumped back out front, but now had Michael Grossman, who started 6th, glued to his back bumper. While Barnes worked to hold back Grossman, Brent Hartley, who started 10th, was slowly working his way towards the front. But a caution on lap 5 for debris down the backstretch, would slow the action. Barnes once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Grossman close behind in second. The battle from third back to seventh was starting to heat up, when Hartley, who was running 4th, slowed down the backstretch on lap 9 to bring out the final caution of the race. On the restart Barnes moved back out front and then held off Grossman over the final 3 laps to claim his first win of the season at the track. Grossman settled for 2nd, Lambert was 3rd, Brandon Reu came from 8th to finish in 4th, with Patrick Skipp Dunker coming from 9th to round out the top 5.
