By Jerry Mackey

DUBUQUE, Iowa (June 18) – Dan Shelliam took his Rocket chassis to the top side of the smooth track and set sail from his second row start and went on to record a comfortable Out-Pace Racing Late Model feature win over Luke Merfeld and Jeremiah Hurst at Dubuque Speedway.

The Merfeld Brothers IMCA Modified feature was a real crowd pleaser as Jed Frieburger turned around a so-so season with a very impressive win in the 20 lap feature event. Freiburger held off Jeff Larson by less than a car length at the finish line. Mark Schulte crossed under the checkers in third.

The GSI IMCA Northern SportMods saw first-time winner Jerry Miles capture the 15-lapper. Miles has shown great improvement early in the season and has established himself as a frontrunner in the very tough SportMod class. Miles held off Eastern Iowa’s hottest driver Tyler Soppe in taking the win. Ryan Duhme ran with the leaders the entire race before settling for third.

Greg Gill scored his second consecutive IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature win.
