DAVENPORT, Iowa (June 29) – The first race night of summer at the Davenport Speedway was an interesting one. Adding to the excitement was a partial loss of power, two-thirds of the way through the racing program.
The Petersen Plumbing & Heating IMCA Late Model feature went green, white, checkered again. Rob Toland collected his second win of the season in the division. Toland got out front early and held the lead the rest of the way to the checkers. A dandy three-way battle for second went to Chuck Hanna, with Matt Ryan taking third.
Bob Dominacki took home the trophy in the Eriksen Chevrolet IMCA Modified feature. The win was Dominacki’s first point victory at Davenport since 2014. He took the lead after a lap 15 restart and had to hold off Toland and Mitch Morris down the stretch for the win. Morris ended up second with Toland third.
The Hawkeye Auto IMCA Northern SportMod feature saw Keith Blum take win number three of the season. Mike Haines and Doug Burkhead were battling for the lead when Blum passed both on the high side. Burkhead recovered to finish second. Randy Lamar took third.
