Victory for VanDeest at Marshalltown

By Jeremy Fox

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (June 19) – Jared VanDeest raced to his third local Karl Chevrolet North­ern SportMod feature win of the season Friday at Marshalltown Speedway.

VanDeest worked his way up to take the lead on lap six. After cautions on laps 11 and 12, he had to hold off challenges from Jenae Gustin to take the hard-earned checkers. Gustin finished se­cond with Brandon Williams in third.

Joel Bushore led the first five laps in the Coors Light IMCA Modified 20-lapper before a caution came out. Richie Gustin snuck by for the lead on the restart.

Brian Irvine made several attempts to take the front spot away but to no avail. Josh Gilman was third.

David Brandies was the leader from lap two to the finish of the Miller Lite IMCA Stock Car feature. Brandies denied a late challenge from Donavon Smith to take the win.

Austin Luellen didn’t let a caution on lap seven or lapped traffic, prevent him from taking his sev­enth win of 2015 at Marshalltown. Eric Stanton and Tyson Overton were second and third, respec­tively.
