by Brian Neal
Donnellson, IA (Friday, October 8, 2021) – After having close to four weeks off since their last race, the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa roared back to action on Friday, October 8th. As Casey’s and Midwest Performance & Power presented night one of the 10th Annual Harvest Hustle, and what beautiful weather mother nature provided for being early October. One-hundred and thirty-three driver’s from six states signed in to do battle, with all five driver’s in their respective class claiming their first wins of the season at the track.

The 20 lap Donnellson Tire & Service Stock Car feature took to the track first, with Dallon Murty and Johnny Spaw drawing the front row. Murty took advantage of his draw to grab the lead on lap 1 over Spaw and Abe Huls. The action up front was slowed for the first time on lap 4, as Pete Stodgel spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Murty jumped back out front, with Spaw and Huls close behind. While Murty worked to hold off Spaw, Jeff Mueller, who started 8th, was working his way towards the front. But disaster would strike Mueller on lap 11, as he slowed in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. Murty once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Spaw and Huls still following. Spaw tried to look under Murty over the final laps. But Murty would hold on to score his first win of the season at the track, which was worth $1,000. Huls was 3rd, David Brandies was 4th, with Chris Wibbell coming from 10th to finish 5th.

Up next was the scheduled 15 lap AVIS Car Rental Sport Compact feature, with Nathan Chandler and Brandon Reu leading the field to the drop of the green flag. Reu would jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Chandler and Josh Barnes, and then held it until lap 7. When something went wrong and Reu slowed, handing the lead over to fifth place starter Jake Benischek. Barnes would challenge Benischek for the lead over the next 7 laps, when the final caution of the race appeared on lap 14. Barry Taft would spin in turn 4 to bring out the yellow, and set up a green-white-checkered overtime finish. Benischek jumped back out front on the restart and then held off Barnes to claim his first win of the season at the Lee County Speedway. Chandler was 3rd, Chuck Fullenkamp started 10th and finished 4th, with Jimmy Dutlinger coming home in 5th after starting in 12th.

Kirby Schultz and Darin Duffy made up the front row for the Iowa Corn Growers Association Late Model feature, with Duffy jumping out front on lap 1 over Schultz and Jeff Aikey. While Duffy set a fast pace out front, the rest of the field was battling for positions behind him. The only thing to slow Duffy down on this night, was the first and only caution of the race on lap 9. As Brandon Rothzen got into the guardrail in turn 3 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Duffy jumped back out front, with Aikey and Gary Webb close behind. Aikey would try to keep pace with Duffy, and even hoped lapped traffic on lap 16 would slow down Duffy. But Duffy was too strong on this night, as he claimed his first win of the season which was worth $1,000. Andy Nezworski came from 8th to finish 3rd, Jeff Larson was 4th, with Webb finishing 5th.

Up next was the 20 lap Roberts Tire Center SportMod feature, with Brayton Carter and Tanner Klingele drawing the front row. Just as the green flag was waved the yellow light would come on, as Reed Wolfmeyer, Tim Plummer, and Tyler Titus got together in turn 2 to bring out the caution. On the original restart Carter grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Klingele and Carter VanDenBerg, who was behind the wheel of Austen Becerra’s #22 machine. Just after lap 1 was scored complete the second caution appeared, as Joseph Luethje and Brandon Lambert got together in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. Carter once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Klingele and VanDenBerg close behind. While Carter paced the field out front, driver’s raced two, three and even four wide for positions behind him. Then just when it looked like the remainder of the event would go caution free, Austin Poage would spin in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. Carter once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Klingele, VanDenBerg, and Logan Anderson, who started 12th, trying to find a way around Carter. But Carter was able to hold off all challenges over the final 5 laps to score his first win of the season at the Lee County Speedway which was $1,000. VanDenBerg was 2nd, Anderson was 3rd, Klingele was 4th, with Sean Wyett coming home in 5th.

The final feature to take to the track was the 22 lap Sonny’s Super Market Modifieds, with Dustin Kroening and Jace Gay drawing the front row. Kroening took advantage of his draw to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over Gay and Dustin Smith, who started 6th. Just after the lap was scored complete the first and only caution of the race slowed the action. Matt Werner slowed in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Smith used the top of the track to power past Kroening for the top spot. Kroening then followed in Smith’s tire tracks over the next 15 laps, waiting for him to make a mistake. The duo would enter lapped traffic on lap 17, which allowed fourteenth place starter Austen Becerra to close in on them for the top spot. Despite the lap traffic, Smith was able to hold on to claim the $1,000 top prize in his first career win at the Lee County Speedway. Becerra slid past Kroening on the final lap to claim 2nd, Dennis LaVeine was 4th, with Travis Denning coming from 8th to round out the top 5.

Kay Defends “Drive For 5” Finale Title

by Brian Neal
Donnellson, IA (Saturday, September 11, 2021) –  The Iowa Corn Growers Association “Drive For 5” finale for the IMCA Late Models, presented by Ideal Ready Mix, Floyd’s Waste Systems, J.J. Nichting Company Case IH, Triple Seven Trucking, Woodworth Attorney at Law, Triple R Performance Engines, KQ92, and Big Country 103.1, took place on Saturday, September 11th at the Lee County Speedway in Iowa. This is the second year for this mini series to happen at the track, with defending race winner Justin Kay once again claiming the checkered flag in the 50 lap feature. Other winner’s on the night were Colton Fisher (Sprint Invaders), Tanner Klingele (SportMods), Jason Ash (Sport Compacts), and Tucker Richardson (Trucks).

The 25 lap Sprint Invaders feature was the first to take to the track, with Jonathan Cornell and Colton Fisher leading the field to green. Cornell grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Fisher and Tanner Gebhardt. Just as Cornell started to pull away from the field, the first caution of the race appeared on lap 5. Noah Samuel slowed to bring out the yellow. On the restart Cornell jumped back out front, with Fisher and Kaley Gharst close behind. Once again Cornell started to pull away from the field, when the second caution of the race slowed the action on lap 9. This time a cone was clipped onto the track to bring out the yellow. Cornell again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Fisher and Gharst following. The pace Cornell was setting would put him into lapped traffic on lap 15. And with five laps to go he came up on two lapped cars racing side-by-side. He would hesitate for a split second to determine what line to use to clear the lapped cars, and that hesitation was enough to allow Fisher to slide in front of him coming off turn 4 to grab the top spot. Fisher then held off a last lap challenge from Cornell to score his first career Sprint Invaders win. Gharst was 3rd, Paul Nienhiser finished 4th after starting in 8th, with Gebhardt rounding out the top 5.

Up next was the 50 lap Iowa Corn Growers Association “Drive For 5” finale for the IMCA Late Models, with Justin Kay and Darin Duffy earning the front row. Kay would take advantage of his starting spot and jumped out into the lead on lap 1 over Duffy and Matt Ryan. While Kay paced the field out front, Duffy, Ryan and Tommy Elston, who started 5th, battled for the runner up spot. The action up front was slowed on lap 9, when Preston Stoecker spun in front of the field in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Dave Eckrich, who was running 7th, slowed down the backstretch and collected Jeremy Pundt to bring the yellow light back on. The following restart saw Kay jump back out front, with Elston overtaking Duffy for the second spot. Another lap was scored complete when the third caution of the race slowed the action. Stoecker would slow in turn 1 to bring out his second solo caution to end his night. On the restart Bryan Moreland and Jay Johnson collided in turn 2 to bring the yellow light back on. The following restart once again saw Kay grab the lead, with Duffy getting second back from Elston. One more lap was scored complete when the fifth caution appeared, this time Matt Strassheim spun in turn 2 to bring out the yellow. Kay once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Elston and Duffy continuing their battle for the runner up spot. As the field battled for positions behind him, Kay started to pull away from the field. The next caution to slow the field was the halfway pit stop on lap 25. Driver’s were given ten minutes to change anything on their cars, except tires, to finish the last 25 laps.

Once the ten minute clock ran out, Kay grabbed the lead on the restart. And once again he started to pull away from the field, as Elston and Duffy continued to battle for second. The only thing to slow Kay down was the final caution of the race on lap 46. Gary Webb would make contact with the lapped car of Jill George and spun in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Kay jumped back out front and then went on to lead the final laps to score his second “Drive For 5” Finale win in a row. But for him it was only worth $2,000. Elston won the battle for 2nd, Duffy was 3rd, Andy Nezworski worked his way up from his 14th place starting spot to finish 4th, with Mark Burgtorf coming from 13th to finish 4th.

Roger Brockett and Tucker Richardson led the field to green in the 12 lap Truck feature. But just as the green flag was wave the caution light would come on, as Ryan Barton got into Matt Barton in turn 1 and spun him to bring out the yellow. On the original restart Richardson grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Ryan White and Matt Barton. While Richardson paced the field out front, Tim Wagner was working the top of the track to work his way forward from his sixth place starting spot. On lap 5 Wagner grabbed the runner up spot and then went to work on Richardson for the top spot. But Richardson was able to hold off all his challenges to claim his first win of the season at the track. White was 3rd, Matt Barton was 4th, with Don Wood rounding out the top 5.

Up next was the 15 lap AVIS Car Rental Sport Compact feature, with Brandon Reu and Chandler Fullenkamp drawing the front row. But it was third place starter Jason Ash who grabbed the lead on lap 1 over Reu and Jeffery DeLonjay. Then just after lap 1 was scored complete Fullenkamp would spin in turn 1 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Ash jumped back out front, with DeLonjay edging Reu for the runner up spot. Both DeLonjay and Reu tried to work under Ash over the next 4 laps, when DeLonjay clipped the inside tires in turn 4 on lap 6 and threw them onto the racing surface to bring out the yellow. Ash once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with tenth place starter Barry Taft edging Reu out for second. Taft, who was working the middle of the track, pulled up beside Ash for the lead on lap 11. Then on the final lap Reu decided to try the topside to grab the win away from Ash. But Ash was able to hold him off to pick up the win. Taft settled for 3rd, Caleb Giese finished 4th, with Cristian Grady coming home in 5th.

The final feature to take to the track was the 18 lap Roberts Tire Center SportMods, with AJ Tournear and Jadin Fuller leading the field to green. Tournear used his starting spot to his advantage by grabbing the lead on lap 1 over Logan Cumby and Fuller. The action was slowed on lap 2, as Rob Wilsey got up onto the guardrail in turn 3 to bring out the yellow. On the restart Fuller got sideways off turn 4 and collected Quinton Shelton to bring the yellow light back on. The following restart saw Tournear edge out Tanner Klingele, who started 6th, to keep the top spot. The final caution of the race appeared on lap 6, as Wilsey spun in turn 4 to bring out the yellow. Tournear once again grabbed the lead on the restart, with Cumby edging out Klingele for second. While Tournear was working the top of the track, Klingele would diamond off the corners to try and get the lead. But Tournear was able to hold him off each lap, that was until lap 13. When Klingele finally got the drive off turn 4 to grab the top spot. Klingele then went on to win his third win of the season at the Lee County Speedway. Tournear was 2nd, Cumby was 3rd, Barry Taft charged from 16th to finish 4th, with Reed Wolfmeyer coming from 9th to finish 5th.

Coming up next at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa is the Harvest Hustle on Friday, October 8th and Saturday, October 9th, being presented by Casey’s.
