The first feature on the night was the 15 lap STARS Mod Lite Series, with Chase Flatt and Justin Buchholz drawing the front row for the event. Flatt would take advantage of his front row start to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Josh May and Buchholz. The action up front was slowed for the first time on lap 6, when Gary Snyder spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Flatt moved back out front, with May close behind in second. May jumped to the top of the track to edge out Flatt at the line on lap 11 to take over the top spot. Just as May started to pull away from the battle for second, another caution would appear on lap 13. This time Jimmy Halcomb, who was running 8th, spun in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. Brian Schnell would spin in turn 1 on the restart to bring the yellow light back on. The next restart had May jump back out front, with Flatt working to hold back Greg Rossell, who started 8th. May would hold on for the final 2 laps to claim the win and the $300 top prize. Flatt won the battle for 2nd, Rossell was 3rd, Andy Hennigar came from 18th to finish in 4th, with Buchholz rounding out the top 5.

DONNELLSON, Iowa (March 25) – Snow is being cleared off the track this morning (Monday), warmer temperatures are in the forecast and the first IMCA event of 2013 in Iowa will be held this Friday, March 29 at Lee County Speedway.
The Spring Extravaganza at Donnellson is headlined by a $1,000 to win feature for IMCA Xtreme… Motor Sports Modifieds.
The Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier is joined by IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods running for $500 to win, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks for $300 to win and Mach-1 Sport Compacts for $200 to win.
Pit gates open at 5 p.m. and the grandstand opens at 5:30 p.m. Hot laps are at 6:45 p.m. and racing starts at 7:15 p.m. More information is available from promoter Mike Van Genderen at 641 521-0330. Any driver running late that afternoon can call the same number and the track will draw for them.
Entry fees are $30 for Modifieds, $25 for Stock Cars and Northern SportMods, $20 for Hobby Stocks and $15 for Sport Compacts. Grandstand admission is $12 for adults, $6 for students ages 7-17, and free for six and under. Pit passes are $25.
IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing national, regional and Allstar Performance State points will be awarded.
The special is sponsored by Mohrfeld Electric.
In 2013 IMCA Modifieds will be guaranteed $100 to start over the $60 to start in the 2012 season. That $40 extra guarantee will help get that driver back to the track the next week. At the end of May we will evaluate this program and hopefully continue this purse for the rest of the year. Although drivers with a perfect attendance will stay on this new purse structure for the whole 2013 regular point season.
IMCA Stock Cars will also see a weekly purse increase of $270 thru May 31. In 2012 the weekly purse was $1945 and has been increased to $2215 thru May 31. IMCA Stock Cars will still be $300 to win but instead of $50 to start in 2012 we have raised that to $70. Once again we will evaluate this at the end of May, but drivers with a perfect attendance will be locked in to this purse for the remainder of the 2013 regular points season.
This year there are many changes in the works with the already announced “Free Pit Pass Program” and point system between the Lee County Speedway, Southern Iowa Speedway, and the Hamilton County Speedway. If a driver qualifies for the free pit pass program at the Lee County Speedway that driver will have a minimum value of $125 in the Modifieds and $95 minimum value in the Stock Cars. This value is by not paying the $25 pit pass and getting $100 and $70 respectively as a minimum for starting the feature.
We want drivers to be able to come to Lee County Speedway and go home with more in their pocket. With gas prices the extra dollars will help drivers make the trip back the next week. Under this new purse structure cars must start the feature to be eligible. Cars that don’t start feature will receive tow money.
Hope to see everyone on Friday, March 29 for the Mohrfeld Electric Spring Estravaganza, All 5 classes will be racing.
