Donnellson, IA (Sunday, October 8, 2017) -What a difference twenty-four hours can make, as the sun was shining bright and temperatures in the mid to upper 70’s greeted the fans for the final night of the 6th Annual “Fall Extravaganza”. The nights action at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa was being presented by Casey’s General Stores, Donnellson Tire & Service, and Midwest Performance & Power. When the final checkered flag waved, four driver’s visited victory for the first time this season and three others were repeat winners on the season.

 

The first feature to take to the track was the 12 lap Mod Lites / Micro Mods, with Erick Knutsen and Darrick Knutsen leading the field to the drop of the green flag. Erick Knutsen used his front row starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Darrick Knutsen and Don Erger. While Erick Knutsen paced the field out front, the battle was for second between Darrick Knutsen and Erger. On lap 6 Erger was able to make the pass on Darrick Knutsen to take over the runner up spot. Erger then went to work on Erick Knutsen for the top spot. Coming off turn 2 on the final lap Erger went to the top of the track to pull up along side of Erick Knutsen going down the backstretch. Then coming off turn four Erger tried to use the momentum off the top of the track to beat Erick Knutsen to the line. But his drive wasn’t enough, as Erick Knutsen edged him out by inches to claim his first win of the season at the track. Erger settled for a close 2nd, Darrick Knutsen was 3rd, Tony Olson was 4th, with Jeff Davis completing the top 5.

 

Up next was the 12 lap Armstrong Tractor Sport Compact feature, with Josh Barnes and Barry Taft drawing the front row. Barnes took advantage of his starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Taft and Brandon Reu. Taft would try the both the bottom and the top of the track to get the lead away from Barnes over the entire 12 laps. But Barnes would hold him off the claim his second win of the weekend and sixth of the season at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway. Taft was 2nd, Reu was 3rd, Adam Gates was 4th, with Chuck Fullenkamp coming home in 5th.

 

Jason Fusselman and Brok Hopwood led the field to green in the 10 lap Hobby Stock feature. But it was third place starter Aaron Martin who used the top of the track coming off turn 4 to edge Fusselman at the line to complete lap 1. Fusselman then tried to wrestle the top spot away from Martin over the entire 10 laps. But when he drifted high coming off turn 2 on the final lap, this allowed Martin to go onto to pick up his first win of the season at the track. Fusselman was 2nd, with Hopwood 3rd.

 

The 20 lap 305 Sprint first was up next, with Dave Getchell and Jarrod Schneiderman making up the front row for the event. Getchell used his starting spot to move out front on lap 1 over Schneiderman and Tanner Gebhardt. Coming off turn 4 to complete lap 2 Schneiderman used a cross over move from the top of the track to the bottom, to take over the top spot from Getchell. Schneiderman then started to stretch out his lead, as Gebhardt took over the runner up spot on lap 6. Gebhardt would close in on Schneiderman on the final lap, as Schneiderman tried to work around a lapped car. But it was to late, as Schneiderman went on to win his second feature of the season at the track. Gebhardt was 2nd, Brayden Gaylord started 6th and finished 3rd, Tyler Glass came from 8th to finish in 4th, with Getchell holding on for 5th.

 

Ty Hill and Abe Huls drew the front row for the 20 lap Donnellson Tire & Service Stock Car feature, with Huls grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Hill and Jason Cook. While Huls paced the field out front, Cook and Paul Shepherd, who started 5th, battled for the second spot. Shepherd was able to clear Cook on lap 3 to take that second spot, and then went to work on cutting into Huls big lead. He would get help on lap 12, when the first and only caution of the race appeared to bring the field back to Huls’ back bumper. A tire was clipped in turn 4 and pushed onto the track to bring out the yellow. On the restart Huls moved back out front, with Shepherd and Cook close behind. Once again while the battle for second raced side-by-side, Huls started to pull away. On lap 16 Cook was able to get the runner up spot back and then went to work on chasing down Huls. Cook would cut Huls’ lead down to a couple of car lengths, but would run out of time. As Huls held on for his fourth win of the season at the track, which was worth $1,000. Cook settled for 2nd, John Oliver Jr. passed 12 cars from his 15th place starting spot to come home in 3rd, Shepherd was 4th, with Johnny Spaw finishing 5th after starting in 8th.

 

Up next was the 20 lap Shottenkirk Parts Express SportMod feature, with Randy LaMar and Brandon Symmonds leading the field to green. But it was third place starter Brandon Lennox who grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Symmonds and Tony Olson, who started 8th. The lead for Lennox only lasted for 1 lap, as Logan Anderson, who started 7th, used the bottom of the track to take over the top spot on lap 2. The first and only caution of the race came out on lap 5 when Olson, who was running third, spun in turn 4 with rear end troubles to bring out the yellow and slow the action. On the restart Anderson moved back out front, with Austen Becerra, who started 5th, over taking Lennox for second. Becerra then slipped past Anderson on lap 7 to take over the lead. Then just when it looked like Becerra would cruise to another win, disaster would strike on lap 15. As Becerra tried to work under a lapped car coming off turn 4 to complete the lap his right rear made contact with the car, which caused the rear tire to go flat. This would hand the lead over to Curtis Van Der Wal, who started 10th. Van Der Wal then held off a last lap challenge from Lennox to score his first win of the season at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway, and the $1,000 top prize to go with it. Lennox settled for 2nd, Anderson was 3rd, Sean Wyett was 4th, with Symmonds finishing in 5th.

 

The final feature to take to the track was the 22 lap Budweiser Modifieds, with Jeff Waterman and Jardin Fuller drawing the front row. Waterman used his front row starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Eric Barnes and Fuller. Just when Waterman started to pull away from the rest of the field, the first caution of the race came out on lap 8 to slow his pace down. Colton Prevo stopped in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Waterman moved back out front, with Barnes and Milo Veloz battling for the second spot. Once again just when Waterman started to pull away another caution appeared on lap 11 to slow him down. Shelby Walsh spun in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Randy Foote, who was running 8th, spun in turn 2 to bring the yellow light back on. The following restart saw Waterman jump back out front, with Barnes working to hold off Kyle Brown, who started 8th, for second. Brown was able to get the runner up spot away from Barnes on lap 14, and then 1 lap later, lap 15, he slipped past Waterman for the top spot. Waterman tried to keep pace with Brown, when he pulled off on lap 18 with troubles. This would allow Brown to pull away to claim his first win of the season at the track, and take home the $1,000 check. Barnes was 2nd, Fuller was 3rd, Veloz was 4th, with Ryan Cook coming home in 5th.

 

One season finale event remains at the Pepsi Lee County Speedway. And that will be held on Friday, October 27th and Saturday, October 28th, as Casey’s General Stores, Donnellson Tire & Service, and Midwest Performance & Power helps bring “Shiverfest”.

PostHeaderIcon Elston, Long, Murty, Wyett, Fusselman, Knutsen, and Barnes Score Night 1 Wins During the “Fall Extravaganza”

by Brian Neal

Donnellson, IA (Saturday, October 7, 2017) – Persistent rain Thursday night and all day Friday forced the Pepsi Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa officials to postpone the first night of the 6th Annual “Fall Extravaganza”, being presented by Casey’s General Stores, Donnellson Tire & Service, and Midwest Performance & Power, to Saturday night. An early morning shower on Saturday morning looked liked it might end any hopes of getting the “Fall Extravaganza: in, but the track crew went to work on the pits and the track soon after the rain stop. There hard work would pay off, as 114 driver’s signed in for night 1 competition.

 

After fourteen qualifying races were completed to set the feature line ups, the 12 lap Mod Lite / Micro Mod feature took to the track first. Randy Bryan and Darrick Knutsen drew the front row for the event, with Knutsen jumping out front to lead lap 1 over Bryan and Devon Rouse. The action was slowed for the first and only time on lap 2, when debris in turn 1 brought out the yellow. On the restart Knutsen moved back out front, with Bryan and Rouse close behind. Bryan tried to keep pace with Knutsen over the final 10 laps, but Knutsen would pull away to pick up his first win of the season at the track. Bryan was 2nd, Chad Dugan was 3rd, Don Erger was 4th, with Jeff Davis rounding out the top 5.

 

Up next was the 14 lap Armstrong Tractor Sport Compact feature, with Jason Ash and Adam Gates leading the field to the drop of the green flag. But it was fourth place starter Jake Benischek who grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Gates and Chuck Fullenkamp. Just after lap 1 was scored complete the first caution of the race appeared, as Barry Taft got into the back of David Prim down the front stretch with Prim ending up sideways into the wall and collecting Kimberly Abbott and Brandon Lambert to bring out the yellow. On the restart debris down the front stretch brought the caution light back on. The following restart saw Benischek jump back out front, with Fullenkamp and Josh Barnes, who started 9th, close behind. While Benischek paced the field out front, Fullenkamp and Barnes battled side-by-side for the runner up spot over the next 4 laps. Barnes was able to take over second on lap 6 and then went to work on Benischek for the top spot. Coming off turn 4 to complete laps 11 and 12 Barnes was able to get under Benischek, but Benischek would hold him off at the line each time. That was until Barnes was able to complete the pass going into turn 1 to complete lap 13. Barnes then pulled away over the final 2 laps to score his fifth win of the season at the track, which was worth $300. Fullenkamp was 2nd, Darin Weisinger Jr. started 7th and finished 3rd, Benischek was 4th, with Gates holding on for 5th.

 

Aaron Martin and Jason Fusselman led the field to green in the 10 lap Hobby Stock feature, with Fusselman grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Martin and Mike Kincaid. Fussleman, who was setting a fast pace out front and looked to be heading to an easy win, when the first caution came out on lap 7 to slow his pace. Brok Hopwood got into the turn 4 guardrail to bring out the yellow. On the restart Fusselman moved back out front, with Martin and Kincaid following. One lap later, lap 8, Hopwood got into the turn 4 guardrail once again to bring out the yellow and ending his night. Fusselman grabbed the lead on the restart with Martin and Kincaid close behind. Martin tried to put pressure on Fusselman over the final lap. But Fusselman, who made the 4 hour trip to the Pepsi Lee County Speedway, held on for his first win of the season and the $500 top prize to go with it. Martin was 2nd, Kincaid was 3rd, Randy Byerly was 4th, with Hopwood credited with 5th.

 

The 20 lap Donnellson Tire & Service Stock Car feature took to the track next, with Brad Tyler and Damon Murty drawing the front row. Murty took advantage of his starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Tyler and Jason Cook. While Murty paced the field out front the battle was for the runner up spot between Tyler and Cook. Cook was able to clear Tyler for second on lap 4 and then went to work on chasing down Murty for the lead. The first caution of the race on lap 6 for Brian Hoener who slowed in turn 4 to bring out the yellow, helped to bring Murty back to Cook’s front bumper. On the restart debris down the front stretch brought the yellow light back on. The following restart saw Murty jump back out front, with Cook and David Brandies, who started 6th, close behind. Just as Murty started to put some distance between himself and the battles behind, the third and final caution of the race came out on lap 9. This time Dustin Griffiths slowed in turn 2 with a right rear flat to bring out the yellow. Murty once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Brandies over taking Cook for the runner up spot. Without another caution to slow down Murty there was no catching him, as he went on to pick up his first win of the season at the track, which was worth $1,000. Brandies was 2nd, Johnny Spaw passed 10 cars from his 13th place starting spot to come home in 3rd, John Oliver Jr. started 9th and finished 4th, with Cook coming home in 5th.

 

Up next was the 22 lap Budweiser Modified feature, with Kyle Brown and Milo Veloz leading the field to green. Veloz used his starting spot to grab the lead on lap 1 over Brown and Michael Long. The first caution of the race came out on the completion of lap 1, as debris in turn 1 brought out the yellow. On the restart Long slipped past Veloz to take over the top spot, with Veloz working to hold back Brown for second. One lap later, lap 2, the second caution slowed the action, as Bill Roberts Jr. spun off turn 4 to bring out the yellow. Long moved back out front on the restart, with Veloz and Brown battling for second. Just as Long started to pull away from the battle behind him, the third caution appeared on lap 6 to slow down his pace. This time Cayden Carter, who was running 5th, slowed in turn 2 with a flat to bring out the yellow. Once again Long jumped out front on the restart, with Veloz and now Kurt Kile, who started 14th, following. While Long pulled away from the field, Veloz worked to hold back Kile for the runner up spot. Just when it looked like Long would cruise to an easy win the fourth caution of the race appeared on lap 19. This time debris in turn 4 brought out the yellow, and brought the field back to Long’s back bumper. On the restart Long moved back out front, with Veloz and Kile close behind. One more lap scored complete produced the final caution on lap 20, as Garett Wilson spun in turn 3 to bring out the yellow. Long would grab the lead on the restart and then held on over the final lap to score his sixth win of the season at the track, and the $1,000 check to go with it. Veloz held on for 2nd, Kile was 3rd, Bruce Hanford finished 4th after starting in 11th, with Jeff Waterman finishing in 5th.

 

Sean Wyett and Tyler Soppe led the field to the drop of the green flag in the 20 lap Shottenkirk Parts Express SportMod feature, with Soppe grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Wyett and Brandon Lennox. Soppe then started to pull away from the field, while the battle was for the runner up spot. The action was slowed for the first time on lap 7 when Brandon Schmitt, who was running 8th, spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Wyett slipped past Soppe to take over the top spot, with Becerra, who started 7th, moving into third. Just after another lap was scored complete the second caution appeared, as Ron Kibbe spun in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. Once again Wyett grabbed the lead on the restart, with Soppe working to hold off Becerra for second. Becerra would make the pass of Soppe on lap 10 and then went to work on Wyett for the lead. But the third caution of the event on lap 11 for Gage Neal who spun in turn 2 slowed the action. Wyett jumped back out front on the restart, with Becerra and Soppe close behind. Becerra would look under Wyett over the next couple of laps, when the fourth caution slowed the battle on lap 14. This time Kibbe and Mike Schump spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart disaster would strike Becerra, as his car wouldn’t come up to speed and Carter VanDenBerg, Logan Anderson, Daniel Fellows, Brandon Dale and Schump would pile into the back of his car coming off turn 4 to bring the yellow light back on. The following restart saw Wyett move back out front, with Brandon Lennox over taking Soppe for second. Lennox would challenge Wyett over the final 5 laps, but Wyett was able to hold him off to claim his first win of the season at the track and the $1,000 check to go with it. Lennox was 2nd, Soppe was 3rd, Kyle Olson was 4th, with Tony Olson rounding out the top 5.

 

The final feature to take to the track for the night was the 20 lap Steffes Pro Late Models, with Denny Woodworth and Tommy Elston drawing the front row. Elston took advantage of his starting spot to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Woodworth and Chuck Hanna. While Elston set the fast pace out front, the battle was for the runner up spot between Woodworth, Hanna, and Cayden Carter. On lap 16 Carter was able to final take over the second spot, but by then Elston had built up a half a track lead. So there was no catching Elston on this night, as he scored his seventh win of the season at the track and the $1,000 top prize to go with it. Carter was 2nd, Hanna over took Woodworth for 3rd on the final lap, with Woodworth 4th, and Brian Crebo coming home in 5th.
