BOONE, Iowa (June 6) – Kyle Brown was impressive in taking the IMCA Modified victory Satur­day at Boone Speedway. 

Gatlin Leytham and Jimmy Gustin led the field to green but by corner one, sixth starter Brown was already in front.  From there on, Brown showed total domination in securing his first win of the 2020 season.  

Joel Rust chased Brown across the finish line in second place, Tim Ward came from ninth start­ing to finish third.

Donavon Smith was the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winner and Doug Smith paced the Karl Kus­toms Northern SportMods. Miciah Hidlebaugh took the checkers in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock main.

Fans were allowed back in the grandstands at Boone for the first time this season. More than one driver expressed in victory lane just how much the fans being there meant to them.

Racing continues next week with early start times.  Pits open at 3:30 p.m., grandstands at 4 p.m., hot laps 5 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.
