BRITT, Iowa (May 24, 2024) – Though the area was water-logged, Hancock County Speedway roared to life Friday night with great racing action sponsored by Toot’s Trucking and Pritchard Family Auto Stores. In the Stars, Stripes and Sirens special, three first-time IMCA winners at the track in 2024 graced victory lane. 

Jeremy Mills used the top side of the track to score his first win at the speedway this season in the Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds. He fended off a couple strong charges by second place finisher Tim Ward who was making time on the inside through turns one and two.

Already Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational qualifying eligible, Mills banked $1,000 for his career 137th win in the class. The checkers were his third win of the season, each of which came in different states, Arizona, South Dakota and now Iowa.

Cody Knecht was third.

Colby Fett led much of the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature, but late race cautions proved to hinder his finish.

Troy Jerovetz, in his first trip to Britt in 2024, got in front of Fett and went on to win, earning $750 and becoming eligible to qualify for the B & B Racing Chassis All-Star Invitational.

Fett stayed strong to finish second, while Heath Tulp rebounded to the top three.

It was Colby and Alec Fett once again pacing the Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods. Colby collected his second win in a row, Alec was second, while Josh Appel was third.

Chris Krug released the stranglehold that Brandon Nielsen has had on the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks. 

Nielsen, winner of the first three events at Britt, finished fifth due to getting spun early in the event and restarting last. Josh Sidles came from 10th to second, while Steve Wickman was third.

Racing action resumes at 7 p.m. at Hancock County Speedway on Friday, May 31.
