Gustin wins on Clement Heating and Cooling Night at Marshalltown

Jun 25, 2011

Fans were greeted with 3 and 4 wide racing action along with Spectator Eliminators for $5 admission thanks to Rod Clement from Clement Heating and Cooling.


First feature of the night was the O'Reilly Auto Parts Mod Lites for 15 laps. Colby Obermebt would lead the early going but Tim Hennigar made the pass for the lead on lap 4 after starting third row outside. Hennigar went on to take the win. Randy Bryan would pass Obermebt for 2nd, Josh May was 4th and Joel Huggins came home in 5th.


Toby K's Hideaway IMCA Hobby Stocks were up next for their 12 lap feature and just like the Mod Lites this feature would go green-to-checkered. Jennifer Hulin would let the first 4 laps but would be passed by Brandon Brinton on lap 5. Brinton would take the win, Eric Larson got 2nd, Hulin fell back to 3rd, Michael Murphy 4th and Jake Nelson 5th.


The Big 8 Tyre Center IMCA Sport Mods were up next for their 15 lap feature. Jenae Gustin would take the early race lead but then the only race caution came out on lap 5 when a several cars got together in turn one and two. Gustin would have to battle with Cayden Carter on the restart and Carter would make the pass for the lead . That pass would also allow Carter to cruise to victory lane. Scott Davis, Dylan Book, Gustin and Dane Larson.


In the Mike's Hard Lemonade IMCA Stock Cars 18 lap feature, we saw some great three and four wide racing.  Michael Jaennette lead the first 6 laps but Jay Schmidt made the pass for the lead on lap 7. It looked like the only that was going to slow Schmidt was the lap traffic but then the yellow came out on lap 16 for a car in turn 1 setting up a green-white-checkered. Schmidt would manage to hold off the challenge from Damon Murty to take the win. Jaennette came home in 3rd, Donavon Smith and Kevin Rose was 4th and 5th respectively.


The final feature of the night would be a very exciting 20 lap feature for the Meskwaki Bingo Casino Hotel IMCA Modifieds. Joel Bushore lead the first lap but the only race caution came out after a completion of 1 lap for a couple cars getting together in turn 4. On the restart Bushore would be passed by Todd Shute. Shute look to be pulling away but Jimmy Gustin was closing.  Shute would maintain the lead but coming off turn 4 on the final lap, but Gustin made the pass and took the win at the line with Shute coming home in 2nd, Adam Larson, Joel Bushore and Jon Snyder rounded out the top 5.
