It’s hard to believe the regular points season at the Lee County Speedway is about to come to a close for the 2012 season. But that will be the case this Friday, August 24th with the PEPSI Memphis Bottling Company Season Championship Night. Four of the five regular class titles are still up for grabs, while one driver has already locked up their title.
Jeff Waterman currently leads the Budweiser IMCA Modified points at the speedway, even without a feature win so far in 2012 at the track, with consistent finishes. He leads Tyler Cale by only 5 points going into the final points night of the season, as Cale has used 3 feature wins to stay close to Waterman. Brandon Banks sits 17 points back from Waterman and 12 points back of Cale in the number 3 spot in points. Ryan Cook currently holds down the number 4 spot in points, just ahead of Derek Hamm who is 5th. Dustin Crear is 6th in points, while defending track champion Josh Foster comes into the night in 7th. Brandon Savage sits 12 points ahead of Bill Roberts Jr. in the battle for 8th. While Kyle Hill and Lonnie Heap are currently tied for the 10th spot in points.
For the second year in a row the Donnellson Tire IMCA Stock Car track champion will be determined at the checkered flag of the feature. Defending track champion Matt Greiner currently has a 1 point lead over Jason Cook. While both have won 3 feature wins on the season Greiner holds the tie breaker, as 1 of Cook’s win came on a non points night. Jeff Mueller sits 3rd in points, only 8 points back of Greiner and 7 back of Cook. Cale Samberg sits only 5 points ahead of Derek St. Clair in the battle for the number 4 and 5 spots in the points. John Oliver Jr. and Jim Lynch are only separated by 2 points in the battle for 6th and 7th in points. Abe Huls has used 4 features win in 8 starts to hold down 8th in points, while Corey Strothman and Jeremy Pundt round out the top 10.

With the off week scheduled this week for Lee County Speedway, the crew has taken the help and ideas of Keokuk Contractors to improve the racetrack. The corners have been disced, watered and will be repacked and watered more throughout the next two weeks. Here are a few pictures of the work that was being done. The rocks at the end are the bigger of the many rocks that were pulled from turn one. The track was disced up between 4 and 6 inches.
