By Mike McGuire

DAVENPORT, Iowa (May 15) – Three drivers scored their second wins of the season Friday at Davenport Speedway.

Matt Ryan made it two-for-two in the Petersen Plumbing & Heating IMCA Late Models. Joe Zrost­lik started on the pole and led the first 14 laps. Ryan flew by on lap 15 and led the rest of the way.

Brunson Behning started fifth and got close to Ryan a couple times but had to settle for second. Todd Malmstrom came from deep in the field to finish third.

Another full field of Milan Heating & Air IMCA Modifieds were on hand and the result was the same as Tony Von Dresky collected his second straight feature win.

Chris Lawrence got to the front early in the race but on a lap four restart gave up the spot to Doug Crampton. Seconds later, Crampton’s car suddenly slowed. A couple restarts later, Lawrence was back in the lead.

Von Dresky, who had to qualify through a semi and started 16th, took the lead on lap 11 and never looked back. Lawrence held on for second with Bruce Hanford third.

Tony Olson also scored his second straight win at Davenport in the Hawkeye Auto IMCA North­ern SportMod feature. Olson started 11th and took the lead from Dalton Simonsen on a lap six restart.

Despite a lap 11 caution, Olson had clear sailing to the checkered flag. Bryce Garnhart started 10th and finished second. Simonsen held on for third.

Next Friday, May 22nd, the Davenport Speedway hosts the IMCA Mod Madness 50. A $2,000 top prize awaits the winner of the 50-lap main event.
