Deery Bros Late Model Summer Series

Marolf is the main man in Deery Series opener at 34 Raceway

WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (April 1) – Nick Marolf will have much memories of his second visit to 34 Raceway than he will of his first. Marolf passed Darrel DeFrance and led the last 30 times around the track in winning Saturday’s Deery Brothers Summer Series opener at West Burlington, earning $2,000 for his IMCA Late Model tour efforts. His one previous outing at 34 came at the Pepsi USA Nationals 17 years ago when his drive shaft broke during hot laps. “That was early in my career and we were just trying to make laps. That night was forgetful. I’d like to not remember it at all,” Marolf said. “We got lucky tonight with the redraw and got to start close to the front (third). I ran with Jay Johnson and then was able to pass Darrel in (turns) three and four for the lead.” While drivers swapped positions behind him, no one could find a way past Marolf before the check­ers flew. DeFrance, competing in his 468th consecutive series event, ended as the runner-up and [Read More]
