Packed House Greets Deery Brothers Late Models
Marshalltown, IA (May 18, 2010) – With Mother Nature finally on our side, a full grandstand got to see some of the best IMCA Late Model drivers in the country for Tuesday nights Miller Lite 50. 100 cars filled the pits as the Deery Brothers Late Models, Mod Lites, Karl Chevrolet SportMods and the Karl Chevrolet Dirt Trucks kept the fans on the edge of their seats all night long.
The Mod Lite- Dwarf Cars were the first feature to take the track with the low line around the track being the most popular as Joel Huggins led the entire 15 lap feature to pick up his second consecutive win. Josh May was 2nd, Tim Hennigar 3rd, Mike Morrill 4th and Matt Goodin rounded out the top 5. The yellow flag flew on laps 1 and 12. Heat race winners were Eric Hendrickson and Tim Hennigar.
The Karl Chevrolet Dirt Trucks took the track next and a very ecstatic Pat Fagan picked up the win during the 10 lap feature, with a single caution coming out on lap 8. Bryan Nevins Jr. was 2nd, Ed Nelson 3rd, Bret Moyer 4th and Lou Sipolt rounded out the top five. Bryan Nevins Jr. and Lou Sipolt each won their heat races.
Brett Moffitt stole the show once again in the Karl Chevrolet – IMCA Northern SportMod feature, as the 17 year old picked up his fourth win of the season at Marshalltown. Moffitt had a straight away lead erased due to a lap 9 caution. After the caution, Moffitt once again pulled away from the field and ended up leading the entire 15 lap feature. Zach Rawlins picked up the 2nd place finish, Kyle Brown 3rd, Jesse Sobbing 4th and Rod McDonald 5th. Heat race winners were Andy Tiernan, Brett Moffitt, Rod McDonald and Cayden Carter.
The Deery Brother Late Models had the fans wanting more, as all night they raced 3 and 4 wide for position on the track and the main event proved to be more than entertaining. Veteran Greg Kastli set the pace for the first 4 laps, then 6 time series champ Jeff Aikey made his move to the point on lap 5 and never looked back. The yellow flag would fly on laps 4, 11, 23 and 37 during the 50 lap main event. Series point leader Ray Guss Jr. challenged Aikey for the lead several times with both drives running the high side. In the end, Aikey held off Guss Jr. to pick up the win. Guss Jr. finished 2nd, Mark Burgtorf came from 22nd after a lap 11 restart to finish 3rd, Jay Johnson 4th and Terry Neal rounded out the top five. Heat race winners were Josh Most, Mark Burgtorf, Jay Johnson, Greg Kastli and Andy Eckrich.
