Two in a row for Ward, Murty and Anderson

Marshalltown Speedway

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (Aug. 4) – Three drivers matched last week’s trip to victory lane Friday at Marshalltown Speedway.

Johnathon Logue returned to the winner’s circle in the IMCA Northern SportMod class. He started 12th in the line up, and was running a distant second to Adam Shelman, when a yellow with three laps remaining became the game changer. When the race restarted, Logue saw his chance and was able to move under Shelman and take the lead.

The IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks came to the track next for their feature event, and it was a familiar face back in victory lane as Shannon Anderson took the win. Anderson started 10th and had to battle by stiff competitors to get to the front.

Damon Murty three-peated in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, sailing home to a comfortable win as he circled the rim of the track. Donavon Smith rebounded from a trip to the pits and having to tag the field, to finish in second place.

Tim Ward went back-to-back in the IMCA Modified feature as he held off a hard-charging Joel Rust to seal the win. Rust started 10th and diced his way through the field but had to settle for second.

The finale of the evening was the IMCA Late Model feature. Todd Cooney got back to his winning ways after a couple of weeks hiatus from standing in victory lane.
