Cooney’s bounty remains, Duffy, Murty and Anderson go back to back

Marshalltown Speedway

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (June 9) – Todd Cooney had a bounty on his head in Friday’s IMCA Late Model feature at Marshalltown Speedway. At the end of the night, that $400 bounty still stood.

Cooney started in row four, flew to the top of the track and quickly reeled in cars.  By lap five, he was leading, and from there on never looked back. Joe Zrostlik led the first four laps and chased Cooney the rest of the way to take second. Third went to Paul Nagle, Darrel DeFrance was fourth and Greg Kastli took fifth.

Shannon Anderson won for the fifth time locally in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks while Damon Murty scored his third straight IMCA Sunoco Stock Car checkers.

Doug Smith’s Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod victory was his third of 2017 at Marshalltown and Da­rin Duffy repeated in the IMCA Modified main event.

One hundred and ten cars were checked into the pits Friday evening.
