A lot of Excitement on Rouse Motor Dodge and Cliff Chambers Memorial Night

Aug 20, 2011

It was time to get back to business at the Marshalltown Speedway where it was Rouse Motor Dodge of Grundy Center, Cliff Chambers Memorial and Racin' for Mason Night at the Speedway.


The Nostalgia Cars and Vintage Cars joined the fun on the night as well and after the races the fans got the opportunity to test drive a new dodge thanks to Rouse Motor Dodge.


The first feature of the night was the Vintage Cars and it was Austin Russell taking the win, Wade Russell in 2nd, Mark David was 3rd and Jim Kippling was 4th.


The Nostalgia Cars saw a friend of the great Cliff Chambers win as John Schroyer would take the race lead midway through the feature after passing Ted Zieman. Finishing behind Schroyer and Zieman was James Kippling, Chad Olson and Jim Anderson.


O'Reilly Auto Parts Mod Lites was up next and it would be Tim Hennigar finishing right where he left off as he would take the lead right away and never look back despite a couple of cautions on lap 2. Hennigar would go on and take his 4th of the year at Marshalltown and 2nd in a row. Mike Morrill, Andy Hennigar, Jeff Stensland and Randy Bryan would round out the top 5.


In the Toby K's Hideaway IMCA Hobby Stocks feature it was Randy Embrey taking the early lead and not look back. The only race caution came out at the halfway point which bunched the field but it didn't bother Embrey.   Embrey would go on and take the win, Kevin Fee, Michael Murphy, Scott Pippert and Clint Nelson would finish 2nd through 5th.


The Big 8 Tyre Center IMCA Sport Mods feature would see the caution come out before 1 lap was completed. Once the race got going it was Zack Rawlins taking the lead but then 2nd race caution came out on lap 3. Rawlins would still remain out front but he would have to deal with his dad Tom on the restart. Zack Rawlins remained out from until Carter VanDenBerg would make the pass for the lead on lap 8. VanDenBerg would go on and take his 2nd win at Marshalltown, Tyler Droste was 2nd, Jenae Gustin got 3rd, Tom Rawlins fell back to 4th and Scott Davis would take over the point lead sole with a 5th place finish.


Mike's Hard Lemonade IMCA Stock Cars would truly live up to the name of "Class Too Tough To Tame" in their 18 lap feature. Tommy Thompson would lead the first couple of laps before Jay Schmidt would get by on the high side. Schmidt and the field would see the caution come on lap 6 and then again on lap 7. Schmidt would have to now deal with Damon Murty and in fact on lap 9 Schmidt and Murty would get together a little and that allowed Trent Murphy to get on by. That move by Murphy would end up putting him in victory lane for his 4th of the year at Marshalltown. Murty, Schmidt, Kevin Rose and Todd Reitzler would round out the top 5.


The final feature of the night was the Meskwaki Bingo Casino Hotel IMCA Modifieds. Andrew Kinser would take the early race lead but the first race caution came out on lap 1 and then again on lap 5. On the restart, Kinser would have to battle with Jon Snyder and Snyder would make the pass for the lead on lap 8. Snyder looked like the win was going to be his but with 3 laps to go, Snyder would spin around in turn 2 handing the lead over to Adam Larson. Larson would go on and take the win and Jimmy Gustin would finish 2nd. Josh Truman, Jacob Murray and Todd Conrad would round out the top 5.


Racing action came to a completion at 10:22pm. Next Friday Night will be Custom Concrete Night at the Speedway with Hot Laps at 7p and Racing at 7:30p and then the following Friday night will be the Larry Wollam Season Championships.
