BOONE, Iowa (June 17, 2023) – Make-up features for last week’s rain out at Boone Speedway were completed before Mother Nature spoiled the rest of the night’s festivities Saturday evening.

These were run before the regular weekly show began. Johnathon Logue won the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature and it was Aron Fye taking top honors in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks. Both features went flag to flag.

The Stock Cars ran their 20-lap make up feature first and Logue led all but the opening laps.  He got around Lonnie Hodges on lap six and then went on to claim the top spot the rest of the way to the checkers.

Austin Bouzek, the Trenton, Mo., driver who has been racing at the track weekly, was on Logue’s tail for much of the race and tried a last-ditch effort slider out of turn four on the run to the checkers, but wasn’t successful. 

Bouzek had to be content with the runner-up spot. Hodges took third, fourth went to Kyle Everts and fifth was Scott Davis. This was Logue’s second Stock Car feature win of the season.

The make-up feature for the Hobby Stocks came to the track for their 15-lap show. Fye led all but the opening lap and would end up going away to take the win.

He finished well ahead of second place Wayne Gifford and a close third place went to Eric Knutson.  Fourth was Solomon Bennett and Mike Smith rounded out the top five.

Fye had earned his first-ever feature win a few weeks back at the track, and now claimed his second career win.

The Stealth Racing IMCA STARS Mod Lites and Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods got their heat races completed for the regular night’s show and the Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds were into their first heat race when the heavens opened up.

The races were then canceled for the night. Since the heats were not completed, the wristbands and ticket stubs are good for a whole new program next week. Pits open at 4:30 p.m., the grandstand opens at 5:30 p.m. with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m.
