Bauer earns emotional win at Farley

By Jerry Mackey
FARLEY, Iowa (June 1) – Racing action resumed Friday at Farley Speedway with the conclusion of the Bauer Memorial races that were cut short by a severe thunderstorm that hit the track on May 25. 
The most emotional win of the night came in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature as Troy Bauer used a last-lap pass of leader Tyler Soppe to score the Bauer Memorial trophy given in honor of his father Harry, who passed away this last January. 
Matt Gansen topped a strong field of IMCA Modifieds in taking the 20 lap feature win and Phil Holtz made a later race charge to win the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature ahead of Cole Mather.
Winners of scheduled features included Darin Duffy, making a rare appearance at Farley, in the Modifieds, Soppe in the Northern SportMods and Mather in the Stocks.
