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.

by Brian Neal

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.

Travis DeMint, who started 7th, would slip under Reu coming off turn 4 on lap 3 to edge him out at the line by inches to grab the top spot away. The action up front was slowed for the first and only time on lap 6, as Trent Orwig lost a right front tire in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. On the restart DeMint jumped back out front, with Reu and Kimberly Abbott, who started 9th, close behind. DeMint would pull away over the final 9 laps to what seemed to be his third win of the season at the track. But after post race inspection DeMint was disqualified for an illegal engine, which gave Mike Reu his first win of the season at the track. Abbott was moved up to 2nd, Lambert was moved to 3rd, Brandon Reu was moved to 4th, with Bryan Shipley, who started 11th, moved up to complete the top 5.

Up next was the 20 lap Shottenkirk of Ft. Madison IMCA SportMod feature, with John Oliver Jr., subbing for Phillip Cossel in the #15, and Brandon Ruffcorn making up the front row. Oliver Jr. would take advantage of his starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Ruffcorn and Austen Becerra. Just as Oliver Jr. started to pull away from the battle behind him, the first caution of the race appeared on lap 7. Debris in turn 1 would bring out the yellow. On the restart Adam Birck, Bob Cowman, Jim Walker, and Charles VanZandt collided in turn 2 to bring the yellow light back on. The following restart saw Oliver Jr. moved back out front, while Jim Gillenwater, who started 9th, Tony Dunker, who started 6th, and Becerra raced three wide for the runner up spot. Gillenwater, who was using the bottom of the track, was able to get up beside Oliver Jr. on laps 13, 14 and 15, but Oliver Jr. was able to hold onto the lead on each lap at the line. Just after the completion of lap 15 Ruffcorn would spin in turn 4 and collected Wesley Mayfield to bring out the final caution and slow the battle up front. Oliver Jr. once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Gillenwater and Dunker close behind. Once again Gillenwater tried to get under Oliver Jr. over the final laps, but Oliver Jr. was able to hold him off to claim his first win of the season at the track in the SportMod division. Gillenwater settled for 2nd, Dunker was 3rd, Becerra was 4th, with Joey Gower coming from 8th to finish in 5th.

Sierra Wilsey and Brandon Symmonds led the field to green in the 14 lap Coors Light IMCA Hobby Stock feature, with Symmonds grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Nick Ulin and Brandon Potts, who started 6th. Just after the completion of lap 1 the first caution appeared for debris down the backstretch. On the restart Symmonds moved back out front, with Ulin and Potts close behind. Another lap scored complete, lap 2, produced another caution, as Dustin Griffiths and Wilsey got stuck together in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Ulin slipped under Symmonds to grab the top spot away, while Dane Blozovich, who started 5th, and Potts also got past Symmonds to take over the second and third spots. Blozovich would follow in Ulin’s tracks over the next 10 laps, when the final caution came out on lap 13 to set up a green-white-checkered overtime finish. Clayton Webster would spin in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. Once again Ulin moved out front on the restart, with Blozovich and Potts glued to his back bumper. Coming to the white flag Blozovich would look under Ulin for the lead, as the two raced the final lap side-by-side. Ulin used the momentum off turn 4 coming to the checkered flag to edge Blozovich at the line by half a car to claim his second win of the season at the track. Blozovich settled for 2nd, Potts was 3rd, Griffiths recovered from the caution on lap 2 to come back up to 4th, with Dale Porter coming home in 5th.

Jake Wenig finally broke his season long bad luck streak at the Lee County Speedway, by picking up his first win of the season in the Donnellson Tire and Service IMCA Stock Car feature. Wenig and Corey Strothman led the field to green in the 20 lap feature, with Wenig jumping out front on lap 1 over Strothman and John Oliver Jr. While Wenig set the pace out front the battle for second heated up, as Oliver Jr., Derrick Agee, who started 10th, and Jeff Mueller, who started 8th, raced two and three wide for the runner up spot. Mueller was able to use the bottom to grab the second spot on lap 12 and then went to work on Wenig for the lead. Wenig, who was using the top of the track, had to work to hold off Mueller, who was running the bottom, as Mueller pulled up beside Wenig on laps 16 and 18. Then going into turn 3 on the final lap Mueller was able to get up beside Wenig. But Wenig would use the momentum off the top of the track to edge out Mueller at the line to pick up the win in a caution free race. Mueller settled for 2nd, Agee was 3rd, Oliver Jr. was 4th, with Strothman holding on for 5th.

The final feature to take to the track was the 20 lap Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, with Kelly Buckallew and Dean McGee making up the front row. McGee used his front row starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Jerad Fuller and Buckallew. Just after the completion of lap 1 the first caution appeared, as Eric Glass spun in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. On the restart McGee moved back out front, with Fuller and Bill Roberts Jr. close behind. The action up front was slowed for the second and final time on lap 4, as debris in turn 3 brought out the yellow. Fuller went to the bottom on the restart to slip under McGee for the top spot, as McGee defended off Roberts Jr. for the runner up spot. While Fuller set a fast pace out front, Carter VanDenBerg, who started 7th, worked his way into second on lap 14. VanDenBerg tried to chase down Fuller for the lead, but without a caution Fuller held on to claim his first career feature win. VanDenBerg was 2nd, McGee was 3rd, Jeff Waterman started 6th and finished 4th, with Scott Dickey coming from 10th to round out the top 5.
