Streaks continue during Heister Memorial

MAQUOKETA, Iowa (June 16) – The checkbooks may come out soon as many are seeing boun­ties on the horizon for a handful of drivers at Maquoketa Speedway.

Daniel Wauters outran the hot weather and the competition to make it four straight checkered flags in the IMCA Hobby Sunoco Stocks Saturday evening during the Donna Heister Memorial.

“What a night at Maquoketa Speedway,” Wauters said on Facebook. “Kids got plenty of ice cream from the Little Racers Car Club, got to ride around in the Batmobile, then we got our fourth straight feature win there. Track was once again excellent and there was some exciting racing.”

Jeff Larson took his third consecutive IMCA Modified 20-lap main. The Freeport, Ill. ace continued his three-state hot streak with the win and topped a stellar, 26-car field.

Joe Bonney pulled away from Mike McGarry for his second straight Ueland Auto IMCA Stock Car win.

Last year’s champion Matt Ryan has made the inside groove work at all the tracks he competes. Saturday was no exception picking up his first 2018 Maquoketa Andover Meat IMCA Late Model 25-lap feature.

Ryan won his third feature in a row overall and fourth in five nights.

Tyler Soppe took his second win of the season in B&D Pit Stop IMCA Northern SportMods.
