Justin Kay of Wheatland had to run down race leader Nick Marolf to capture the victory in the SLMR Hoker Trucking East Series feature at Davenport Speedway. The win earned Kay a cool $5,000 top prize.

Justin started in the seventh position. After a late race caution, Kay would go around Marolf on the high side on lap twenty-seven, a news release says. The two leaders would duel back and forth in the final laps with Kay holding a .072 second lead at the checkers

Finishing behind Marolf was “Hollywood” Jason Hahne in third, Luke Goedert fourth, and Andy Eckrich fifth.

Late Model heat race wins went to Jeff Aikey, Charlie McKenna, Goedert, and Marolf. Fast time in qualifying was set by Jake Neal, with a time of 14.728 seconds, the release says.

Travis Denning led all twenty laps of the Eriksen Chevrolet IMCA Modified main. However, it was not an easy victory. Spencer Diercks was challenging for the lead the first half of the race with Matt Werner applying the pressure late in the event.

Werner was a car-length back at the checkers for second. Denny Eckrich came from the fourth row to take third. Diercks and Mitch Morris rounded out the top five.

Tyler Soppe led flag to flag in IMCA SportMod action. The win was Soppe’s first at Davenport this year. Shane Paris would get to Soppe’s bumper, but no closer. Third went to Ben Chapman, who started eighth. Logan Veloz finished fourth, while Jake Morris started 14th and drove to a fifth-place finish.

Koehler Electric Street Stocks saw Jeff Struck Jr. capture his third feature win of the season. Struck led thirteen of the fifteen laps. Robert Cottom finished second with Jesse Owen third. Early race leader Landen Chrestensen took fourth, ahead of Frank Waters.

Jake Benischek dominated the QCjeeps.com Sport Compact main. Shawn McDermott beat out Cyle Hawkins for second. Matt Mackey and Dustin Begyn finished fourth and fifth respectively.
