MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (July 3) – Three drivers scored their first wins of the year Friday at Mar­shalltown Speedway, Curtis Glover in the IMCA Sunoco Late Models, Damon Murty in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Johnathon Logue in the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods.

Glover led all 15 laps of the caution-free Late Model main and did so going away.  Last week’s winner Dalton Simonsen finished second and Logan Duffy took third. 

In another green to checkers contest, Murty started 10th, claimed the topside as his own again and overtook then leader Dusty Vis at lap nine. Son Dallon followed his dad’s lead, rim riding his way to second place after starting ninth.  Kyle Everts came from eighth starting spot to finish third.

The ninth starting Logue made the bottom side work to his advantage, finding just enough mois­ture to make it work in his 18-lap event. Logue caught leader Brayton Carter, making the pass with four laps remaining, and then sailed to victory.  Carter finished as the runner up while Jenae Gustin came from eighth to finish third.

Tom Berry Jr. made it two in a row in the IMCA Modifieds and Kaden Reynolds became a perfect 4-for-4 in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks after starting 12th.
