Friday was a full night of racing at the Davenport Speedway with more than 120 cars in the pit area. Crashes and late race passes kept the fans on the edge of their seats throughout the evening, a news release says.
Justin Kay continued his dominance in the Petersen Plumbing & Heating IMCA Late Model division. Justin scored his fifth win of the year at Davenport, but had to pass a lot of cars to do it. Kay started twelfth and made his way to eighth, before being involved in a lap seven caution. Restarting at the tail of the field, Justin used both the high and low grooves to fight his way to the front. Kay passed Andy Nezworski for the lead on lap 23 and then led to the checkers.
Nezworski led sixteen laps but would have to settle for second. Jacob Waterman started eighteenth but finished third. Matt Ryan and Dustin Schram finished fourth and fifth respectively.
Eriksen Chevrolet IMCA Modifieds saw Matt Werner take his third feature win of the season, but his first since May 13th. Werner was third when the caution came out with two laps to go. Matt was able to drive around Eric Barnes and Ryan Duhme on the restart to collect the victory. Duhme led the majority of the race before taking second. Tyler Madigan also benefited from the final restart, finishing third. Eric Barnes and Dustin Smith rounded out the top five.
Jarrett Franzen led flag to flag in the IMCA SportMod main. Franzen started on the pole and used the bottom groove to lead all fifteen laps. Logan Veloz stayed close to Franzen and scored a second place finish. Tyler Soppe and Ben Chapman had a back and forth battle for third with Chapman taking the spot at the checkers. Cam Reimers rounded out the top five.
Jeff Struck Jr. scored feature win number five in Koehler Electric Street Stocks. Struck started tenth and grabbed the lead on lap three. Joe Bonney ran a strong second with Justin Kay taking third. Jesse Owen finished fourth and Daron Oberbroeckling fifth.
In the QCjeeps.com Sport Compact feature, Shawn McDermott went back to back in victory lane. McDermott started deep in the field and took the lead as the field came to the white flag. Cyle Hawkins ran the bottom of the track, led ten laps, but finished second. Dustin Begyn, Drew Wise, and Trent Lebarge finished third through fifth, in that order.
Doak Allen was the feature winner in the American Iron Racing Series feature. Allen took the early lead and held off a pack of cars down the stretch to take the win. Terry Mattly survived a late race restart to finish second Jake Hayes took third followed by Walt King and Dennis Etten.
