DAVENPORT, Ia. (August 19, 2022) – There were two races at Davenport Speedway on Friday night. One was the weekly racing season championship. The other was to get the racing program completed before the approaching storm arrived.

Justin scored a win in his heat race. Nezworski took third in his heat. In the feature, the roles were reversed with Andy taking the win. The two drivers are again tied in points. The championship will be determined by tie-breakers in accordance with IMCA rules.
