Duffy drives to first Marshalltown win of season 

Marshalltown Speedway

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (June 2) – Darin Duffy made his first visit of the season to Marshalltown Speedway on Friday and was rewarded with the IMCA Modified feature win.

Jimmy Gustin saw his nice lead disappear when a yellow flew at lap seven. By this time, Duffy had made it to second after starting 11th and Joel Rust, who had started even deeper in the field, was closing in on the frontrunners.

The three top cars duked it out, swapping positions until Duffy finally established the top spot for good, and sealed the win. Rust took the runner-up spot and Gustin was third.

Another driver getting his first win at Marshalltown after trying for five years was Johnathon Logue Jr. in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod division.  Logue did it the hard way, coming from 11th starting spot and having to catch and pass some tough competition.

Todd Cooney made it three in a row as he dominated in the 20-lap IMCA Late Model main event while Shannon Anderson started 12th and went back-to-back for wins in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock division.

Damon Murty repeated his win from last week in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars. Murty started sixth, went to the topside and motored into the lead by lap three.

Next up at Marshalltown Speedway is the Miller Lite 50 for the IMCA Deery Brothers Late Models and the Arnold Motor Supply Hawkeye Dirt Tour for IMCA Modifieds, on Tuesday, June 6.  The IMCA Stock Cars are also scheduled.  Hot laps are 7 p.m. with racing to follow.
