BOONE, Iowa (June 4) – John Logue put his ride back in victory lane following the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified feature for the second time in a row Saturday at Boone Speedway while Jay Schmidt scored another victory in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car ranks.
Logue started seventh and had his familiar number 69 in the lead by lap eight of the 20-lap Modified feature. He never relinquished that lead on his way to the checkers and the win. He had big time company behind him fighting it out tooth and nail for position.
It was Jimmy Gustin, the 11th place starter, winning the battle to take the runner-up spot. Point leader Mike VanGenderen finished third from his 12th place starting spot. Russ Dickerson came from 18th to finish fourth and Kyle Brown rounded out the top five.
Schmidt captured his second win of the season in the Stock Car class. He wasted no time in getting to the front, grabbing the lead by lap two from his sixth starting spot. He stretched his lead, looking comfortable out front, until a caution at lap 15 of the 18-lap race bunched the field.
It was Donavon Smith then close at hand in second for the restart. However, Schmidt kept his poise and the lead the rest of the way to the checkers. Smith held the runner-up spot over Matt West, Tyler Pickett and Wayne Gifford.
The 18-lap Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature saw a new face visiting victory lane this season. Chad Ryerson started sixth and took the lead at lap six, never to relinquish it the remainder of the race for the win. Last week’s winner, Randy Roberts came home in second after starting 10th. Brandon Williams was third, fourth went to Johnathon Logue and Thor Anderson completed the top five.
The 12-lap IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature went to David Rieks. Rieks was chased most of the distance by Ross Marshall who fell just short for a runner-up finish. Tenth place starter Dustin Graham finished third, fourth went to Seth Butler and Jordan Peters finished fifth.
