Marshaltown, Iowa (May 11) – The sixth stop of the season takes the Deery Brothers Summer Series to Marshalltown Speedway and the Miller Lite 50 show next Tuesday, May 18.
The IMCA Late Model tour event pays $2,000 to win and a minimum of $250 to start. Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods will vie for $400 to win along with national and Allstar Performance state points. Karl Chevrolet dirt trucks and mod-lites complete the race program.

Three-time series king Mark Burgtorf has won three of the first five tour events this spring, but trails Ray Guss Jr. by four points heading to Marshalltown. Hometown hero Darrel DeFrance, Tom Goble and six-time and defending series champion Jeff Aikey round out the top five in the standings.
Both Guss and Aikey own a pair of trophies from tour events at Marshalltown. Curt Martin has had the most success there, however, with five career checkers to his credit.
