DAVENPORT, Iowa (June 20) – Friday was Mid-Season Championship Night at Davenport Speedway and Justin Kay scored his second straight and third point win of the season in Petersen Plumbing & Heating IMCA Late Model action.
Matt Ryan took the lead from the pole position and led the first seven laps. Spencer Diercks lead the next four circuits with Kay finally taking the lead on lap 12. Kay cruised the rest of the way to the checkers and the win.
Diercks fended off Nate Bueseling to finish second. Ryan and Todd Malmstrom completed the top five.
Chris Zogg also recorded his second straight and third point win of the season in the Milan Heating & Air IMCA Modified feature.
Zogg grabbed the lead from Bob Dominacki on lap 12. The 20-lap main was shortened by a lap as the caution flag flew after the leader had taken the white flag.
Kurt Kile made a late charge to finish second with Mitch Morris third. Bob Dominacki was fourth and Milo Veloz Jr. fifth.
Austin Moyer, fresh off his victory in last week’s SportMod Challenge 50, collected his first point win at Davenport in the Hawkeye Auto IMCA Northern SportMod main.
Moyer took the lead after a lap three restart and dominated the rest of the way to the checkers. Point leader Bryce Garnhart came from the back row but had to settle for a distant second. Henry Carson had a solid run in third and was followed to the checkers by Joe Grant and Doug Burkhead.
