By Jerry Mackey

FARLEY, Iowa (Aug. 25) – Justin Kay wrote his name in the record books following Friday’s sea­son championship races at Farley Speedway presented by Casey’s General Store.

Kay was crowned the track champion in both the IMCA Late Model and IMCA Modified divisions, matching a feat accomplished previously by only two other drivers.

Kay took charge of the Out-Pace Racing Products IMCA Late Model feature when the green flag waved and despite several attempts by strong-running Tyler Bruening scored the feature win and track championship.

Kay’s run to the GSI Collision Specialists IMCA Modified title was slightly easier as he held the point the entire 20 laps and scored a comfortable win over Mark Schultz.

Despite having to go to the back of the 20-car field following a lap two spin, Tyler Soppe came all the way back to the front and scored an impressive season championship win in the GSI Collision Spe­cialists IMCA Northern SportMods.

Shoppe’s win put an exclamation point on a fantastic season at Farley. Soppe’s win cemented the track title. Troy Bauer ran second and Nic Coates was third.

Johnny Spaw made his third visit of the season to Farley and scored the feature win in the Baker Seamless Gutters IMCA Stock Cars. Phil Holtz ran second and earned the season long point title.

Point standings for all IMCA divisions become official on Oct. 23.

The next event at Farley Speedway will be the 40th annual Yankee Dirt Track Classic. The Yan­kee will get underway on Thursday, Aug. 31 with racing action in the Modified, SportMod and INEX Legend divisions. On Friday night, Sept. 1, the Late Models, Stock Cars and Limited Late Models will take center stage. Saturday, September 2, will be the running of all last-chance races and the big Yankee Dirt Track Classic championships being headlined by the 100-Lap IMCA Deery Brothers Summer Series event, which will award the Late Model winner $10,000.

Action will take to the super-fast 3/8 mile dirt track each night at 6:30 p.m.
