PostHeaderIcon Guengerich, Cook, and Becerra Score First Wins

by Brian Neal
Donnellson, IA (Friday, May 12, 2017) – Another beautiful Friday night meant another great night of racing at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa. The night would kick off right at 7:30 PM, with the final checkered flag waving at 9:45 PM. This was helped with only 6 cautions in 93 laps of feature racing. At the end of the night three drivers would find victory lane for the first time of the season at the track, while two others picked up their second wins.

The 15 lap Armstrong Tractor IMCA Sport Compact feature was the first to take to the track, with Kenny Smith and Daniel Fellows leading the field to the drop of the green flag. Fellows would take advantage of his front row start to grab the lead on lap 1 over Brandon Lambert and Barry Taft, who started 6th. Coming off turn 4 on lap 3 Taft would slip under Fellows to take over the top spot, with Kimberly Abbott, who started 7th moving into second. While Taft worked to hold off Abbott, on the bottom of the track, Lambert would use the top of the track. On lap 6 Lambert over took Abbott for second, and then went to work on Taft for the lead. Lambert was able to pull up beside Taft coming off turn 4 on lap 8, but then got into the guardrail in turn 1 and fell back to fourth. Abbott would move back into second and then challenged Taft over the final 7 laps for the top spot. But Taft was able to hold off all her challenges in a caution free race to pick up his second win of the season at the track. Abbott was 2nd, Lambert recovered to finish 3rd, Fellows was 4th, with Travis DeMint coming from 8th to finish 5th.

Up next was the 20 lap Donnellson Tire & Service IMCA Stock Car feature, with Scott Jordan and Kevin Koontz making up the front row. But it was third place starter Jason Cook who jumped out into the lead on lap 1 over Abe Huls, who started 5th, and Jordan. While Cook set a fast pace out front the battles behind him went two and three wide at times, as several drivers who started deep in the field were trying to work there way towards the front. Just as Cook was starting to pull away from the field the first and only caution of the race appeared on lap 11, which helped to bring the field back to Cook’s back bumper. On the restart Cook moved back out front, with Huls and Jason See, who started 9th, close behind. While Huls and See worked the middle and bottom grooves of the track, John Oliver Jr., who started 10th, went to the top to climb into the runner up spot on lap 15. But Oliver Jr. would run out of laps to chase down Cook for the lead, who went on to claim his first win of the season at the track. Oliver Jr. settled for 2nd, Huls was 3rd, See was 4th, with Dustin Griffiths finishing 5th after starting in 12th.

Charles VanZandt and Jeff Guengerich drew the front row for the 20 lap Steffes UMP Pro Late Model feature, with Guengerich grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Denny Woodworth and VanZandt. Woodworth would look under Guengerich on laps 2 thru 5, as the the two raced side-by-side around the 3/8th’s mile. But Guengerich was able to use the momentum off the top of the track each lap to nip Woodworth at the line to hold the lead. The action up front was slowed for the first time on lap 6, as Derek Sammons spun into the guardrail in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Guengerich moved back out front, with Woodworth, and Sam Halstead close behind. One lap later, on lap 7, the second caution appeared, as debris in turn 4 slowed the field. Once again Guengerich jumped back out front on the restart, with Woodworth and Halstead following. Once again Woodworth would try to work under Gunegerich over the next 3 laps, when the final caution of the race slowed the battle on lap 10. Sammons would spin in turn 2 to bring out his second solo caution of the race to end his night.

Guengerich again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Woodworth and Halstead close behind. While Woodworth worked to hold off Halstead for the runner up spot, Guengerich was able to put a few cars lengths between them. But once Woodworth got back into his groove he was able to close back in on Guengerich coming to the white flag. But Guengerich was able to hold him off to pick up his first win of the season at the Lee County Speedway. Woodworth was 2nd, Halstead was 3rd, Tommy Elston started 10th and finished 4th, with Nick Marolf, in an IMCA restricted car, rounding out the top 10.

Up next was the 20 lap Budweiser IMCA Modified feature, with Larry McConnell and Mitch Boles leading the field to the drop of the green flag. But it was fourth place starter Dennis LaVeine who jumped out front on lap 1 over McConnell and Dakota Simmons. While LaVeine set the pace out front, Jeff Waterman, who started 7th, worked his way into second on lap 3. Then on lap 6 Waterman would slip under LaVeine coming off turn 4 to take over the top spot. Waterman was setting such a torrid pace that there was no way of catching him with out a caution. And that caution never happened, as the race went caution free, which allowed Waterman to claim his second win of the season at the track. LaVeine was 2nd, Blake Woodruff was 3rd, Simmons was 4th, with Dean McGee finishing in 5th after starting in 10th.

The final feature to take to the track on the night was the 20 lap Shottenkirk Parts Express IMCA SportMods, with Dave Kraus and Brandyn Ryan on the front row. On the drop of the green flag it was Austen Becerra, who started third, grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Kraus and Brandon Dale. Kraus’ run up front would come to an end on lap 2, as he spun in turn 2 and collected John Oliver Jr. to bring out the first caution of the race. On the restart Becerra jumped back out front, with Tony Dunker, who started 8th, over taking Dale for second. Dunker would follow in Becerra’s tire tracks over the next 4 laps, when the second and final caution of the race slowed the action on lap 7. This time Ryan slowed to a stop in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. Becerra once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Dunker and now Vance Wilson, who was driving Chuck Ancell’s number #28 and started 9th, following. Dunker tried to look under Becerra over the final 12 laps, but Becerra was able to hold him off to pick up his first win of the season at the track. Dunker was 2nd, Wilson was 3rd, Dan Keltner started 11th and finished 4th, with Dale coming home in 5th.

PostHeaderIcon Close Finishes Highlight Thursday Nights Action

by Brian Neal
Donnellson, IA (Thursday, May 4, 2017) – A rare Thursday night of racing was held at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa, as the Lucas Oil MLRA Late Models made there first of two stops at the track for 2017. The action was being presented by Roberts Tire Center out of Burlington, Iowa, and if you missed the racing then you missed out on some close finishes.

The first feature to take to the track was the 20 lap Donnellson Tire & Service IMCA Stock Cars, with Jake Wenig and Abe Huls drawing the front row. But just as the green flag was dropped the caution light would come on, as Chad Krogmeier and Dean Kratzer spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the original restart third place starter John Oliver Jr. slipped under Wenig and Huls to grab the lead on lap 1. Oliver Jr. then started to put some distance on the two and three wide battles going on behind, when the second and final caution of the race appeared on lap 9 to bring the field back to his back bumper. This time Kevin Koontz spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. Oliver Jr. jumped back out front on the restart, but now had Damon Murty, who started 12th, and Jeff Mueller, who started 11th, close behind him. Murty and Mueller raced side-by-side over the next several laps in the battle for second, when Mueller finally settled into the spot on lap 16. Mueller quickly closed on Oliver Jr.’s back bumper, as the two came off turn four for the white flag bumper to bumper. Going into turn 3 on the final lap Muller was able to get under Oliver Jr., as the two raced off turn 4 side-by-side. Oliver Jr. would edge Mueller at the line by inches to claim his first win of the year at the track and the $1,000 top prize that went with it. Mueller was 2nd, Murty finished 3rd, Mike Hughes started 10th and finished 4th, with Jeremy Pundt coming home in 5th after starting in 8th.

Up next was the 40 lap Lucas Oil MLRA Late Model feature, with Chris Simpson and Terry Phillips leading the field to the green flag. But just as the green was waved the caution light would come on, as Brent Larson, Chase Junghans, Jordan Yaggy, and Al Humphrey got together in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. The following original restart saw Chris Simpson grab the lead on lap 1 over Chad Simpson and Phillips. Chris Simpson was setting such a torrid pace, that by lap 10 he started to enter lapped traffic. While Chris paced the field out front, Tony Jackson Jr., who started 5th, and Jimmy Mars, who started 7th, were working their way towards the front. Jackson Jr. would slip into 3rd on lap 10, and then used the middle of the track trough heavy lapped traffic to grab the runner up spot on lap 15. On lap 22 Mars made the move to take over the 3rd spot, as he and Jackson Jr. went to work on cutting into Chris Simpson’s lead.

By lap 28 Jackson Jr. and Mars were within striking distance of Chris for the lead, as they worked heavy lapped traffic that raced side-by-side in front of them. Coming off turn 2 to complete lap 30, Chris Simpson went three wide off the top of the track to clear the two lap cars in front of him. The move then helped Chris Simpson to put some distance between himself and Jackson Jr. and Mars. As Chris Simpson went on to pick up the win in a caution free race after the caution on the start. Jackson Jr. settled for 2nd, Mars was 3rd, Chad Simpson was 4th, with Billy Moyer coming from 11th to round out the top 5.

Tony Dunker and Carter VanDenBerg drew the front row for the 20 lap Shottenkirk Parts Express IMCA SportMod feature, with VanDenBerg grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Dunker and Kyle Hill. VanDenBerg then had to work to hold off Dunker over the next 5 laps, when the first caution of the race appeared on lap 6. Austen Becerra spun in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Dunker used the momentum off the top of the track in turn 4 to grab the lead away from VanDenBerg, with Logan Anderson, who started 7th, moving into third. VanDenBerg then followed in Dunker’s tire tracks, until disaster struck him on lap 16. He would slow off turn 4 with a right rear flat to bring out the second and final caution of the race. Dunker grabbed the lead on the restart, with Brandon Lennox, who started 9th, over taking Anderson for second. While Lennox and Anderson raced side-by-side for the runner up spot, this allowed Dunker to pull away over the final laps to pick up his second win in a row at the track, and the $1,000 top prize that went with it, Anderson won the battle for 2nd, Lennox was 3rd, Jim Gillenwater started 12th and passed 8 cars to come home in 4th, with Brian Efkamp finishing 5th after starting in 10th.

Up next was the 25 lap Budweiser IMCA Modified feature, with Jacob Murray and Kelly Shryock leading the field to the drop of the green flag. Shryock would take advantage of his starting spot to jump out front on lap 1 over Murray and Hunter Marriott, who started 5th. Shryock, who was mostly using the top of the track, set a torrid pace out front that forced him to maneuver through heavy lapped traffic by lap 12. The lapped traffic would allow Marriott to slip into the runner up spot on lap 18, and also cut into Shryock’s lead. A lap car running the high side of the track, slowed Shryock enough coming off turn 4 on lap 22 to allow Marriott to grab the top spot. But a lapped car running the bottom of the track, allowed Shryock to use the momentum off the top of the track in turn 4 coming to the white flag to take the lead back. Shryock then held off Marriott at the line in a caution free race to claim his first win of the season at the track, and pick up the $1,000 top prize to go with it. Murray was 3rd, Richie Gustin was 4th, with Chris Zogg rounding out the top 5.

The final feature to take to the track on the night was the 15 lap Armstrong Tractor IMCA Sport Compacts, with Kimberly Abbott and Steven Struck drawing the front row. But it was third place starter Josh Barnes who grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Abbott and Barry Taft, who started 5th. Barnes then held the top spot until lap 6, when Abbot slipped under him to grab the lead. While Abbott set the pace out front, Jake Dietrich, Taft and Barnes battled for the runner up spot. Taft would secure second on lap 10, and then went to work on Abbott for the lead. Coming off turn 4 for the white flag Taft was able to get under Abbott to grab the lead away. But Abbott would slip under Taft going into turn 3 to edge him out at the line to claim her first win of the season at the track and the $300 top prize. Taft settled for 2nd, Dietrich was 3rd, Barnes was 3rd, with Travis DeMint coming home in 5th after starting in 10th.

Coming up next Friday, May 12, 2017 at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa will be another weekly racing night. In action on the night will be the Steffes UMP Pro Late Models, Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, Donnellson Tire & Service IMCA Stock Cars, Shottenkirk Parts Express IMCA SportMods, and the Armstrong Tractor IMCA Sport Compacts.
