Pershy, Olson grab Davenport wins 

By Mike McGuire

DAVENPORT, Iowa (April 21) – Chilly weather conditions couldn’t stop the Koehler Electric season opener at Davenport Speedway Friday night.

The Eriksen Chevrolet IMCA Modified feature belonged to Jason Pershy. Pershy led all 20 laps en route to the win.

Pershy looked like he was going to be challenged for a while by Stephan Kammerer, who came from eighth starting position using the high side of the track. When the top groove went away, Kammerer slid back to finish third. Rob Toland would take second. Matt Werner and Mitch Morris were fourth and fifth respectively.

Tony Olson took up where he left off last season in Hawkeye Auto IMCA SportMod action. The defending track champion dominated his feature. Ben Chapman fought his way to a second place finish, with Andrew Burk taking third. Rick Wages made a late race charge to finish fourth while Jake Morris completed the first five.

The IMCA Late Model point season starts Friday, April 28.
