Larson, Shryock earn IMCA tour wins at Kossuth County

By Greg Grabianowski ALGONA, Iowa (July 1) – A teenager with the biggest win of his life and a veteran driver with a ton of feature wins highlighted the Midwest Madness Tour show at Kossuth County Speedway.  Sixteen-year old Jayden Larson won the IMCA Modified feature, holding off Travis Hatcher, Jeremy Mills and Kelly Shyrock for the biggest victory of his young career. The $1,000 checkers put the Mankato, Minn., driver on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot.  The veteran Shryock also earned $1,000 for his IMCA Sunoco Stock Car victory. Hatcher and Larson led 24 Modifieds to the flag stand with Larson out front by lap two. After cautions on laps six and 10, the race stayed green for nine circuits. Larson, entering his sophomore year at Mankato East High School this fall, weathered two more restarts and held off some heavy hitters for his first-ever feature win at Algona.  Shryock tussled with Derek Green over the runner-up position, then started inching closer to leader Elijah Zevenbergen on lap 14 in the Stock Car [Read More]

By Greg Grabianowski  ALGONA, Iowa (June 25) – Jared Boumeester led the final 19 laps to collect the $1,000 checkers in the Wyffel’s Hybrids IMCA SportMod special at Kossuth County Speedway.

Looft closed the gap to make things interesting as the two drivers weaved in and out of traffic. Boumeester regained his line and held off the former national champion for his second win of the season at Algona.  “It was a nice win against a great field of almost 30 cars,” he said from victory lane. “When I got to that big group of lapped cars I was thinking ‘Come on, we need a yellow flag, maybe that would help not having to try to get through all of [Read More]

Briese breezes to Kossuth County checkers

By Greg Grabianowski  ALGONA, Iowa (May 28) – Jason Briese led a fast field of IMCA Modifieds to the flag stand and all the way to the checkered flag Thursday night at Kossuth County Speedway.  Briese built a comfortable advantage early as there was a four-car battle for second between Nick Meyer, Jeremy Mills, Brandon Beckendorf and Kelly Shryock. Austin Wolf joined that group to create a six-car breakaway through the first half of the race. Mills took over the runner-up spot at the half way mark of the feature as it was a three-car breakaway by then with Briese, Mills and Shryock.  Briese continued to hold the top spot and the only delay to his appearance in the winner’s circle was a yellow flag on nine as the Cleghorn driver gladly took the double checkered flags from flagman Logan Kelly first.

Opening night attracts 100-plus cars to Kossuth County

By Greg Grabianowski ALGONA, Iowa (May 21) – It was opening night at Kossuth County Speedway May 21 without any specta­tors in the grandstands but that did not deter a grand total of 103 cars from dotting the pits at Al­gona.  While the IMCA Modified featured was a heated battle throughout, pole-sitter Cody Knecht led the whole way to earn the win. Just a caution flag on lap number five delayed the Whittemore driver trip into the win­ner’s circle. Austin Wolf and Jeremy Mills both challenged Knecht but he refused to give up the lead. Thirty-one IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars vied for spots in their main event grid. Devin Smith grabbed the early but Jeffrey Larson pulled even at midway and took the lead on the following lap.  Both Troy Swearington and Smith kept pressure on Larson but he went onto the win with Smith second and Swearington third. Zack Smidt paced the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Jared Boumeester was the Karl Kustoms North­ern SportMod winner. Kaytee DeVries topped the Mach-1 Sport Compact main. [Read More]
