DUBUQUE, Iowa (May 22) – Sunday nights racing action at the Dubuque Speedway saw history made in the Modified class and hot streaks continue in both the Late Model and SportMod classes.
Austin Moyer is making the most of his new racing opportunity as he has taken over the steering wheel of Kenny Boyse’s 1M Merfeld Brothers Automotive IMCA Modified. Moyer, in his rookie campaign, scored his first career IMCA Modified win Sunday night.
Moyer drove a flawless race in scoring the win over several of the Modified division’s very best drivers. Jeff Larson took second with defending track champion Jeremiah Hurst third.
Joel Callahan won his fourth main event in the last four nights of racing with an impressive run in the Out Pace Racing Products IMCA Late Model 25 lap feature. Callahan shot to the front from the eighth starting position to take the lead on lap two. Callahan put his no. 40 car on the extreme high side and went on to record the win. Dan Shelliam took second ahead of Lyle Klein.
Sixteen-year-old Mark Maas is riding a two-race win streak in the GSI Collision Specialists IMCA Northern SportMod division. Maas hit his marks every lap in route to an impressive win over Tyler Soppe and Ross Neal.
Greg Gill pulled his IMCA Sunoco Stock Car from Muscatine on Sunday night and made the long trip pay off in garnering the big trophy. Gill crossed under the checkers ahead of Jerry Miles and Lucas Short.
On Sunday, May 29, the Dubuque Speedway will host the Ideal Ready Mix Tri-Track Challenge which will feature the Out Pace Racing Products Late Models battling it out on the high banks for a $2,000 first place prize. All weekly classes will join the program with hot laps at 6 p.m. and following the races, a fan appreciation party will be held in the Beer Garden.
