Huls scores 100th IMCA Stock Car win at Lee County

By Brian Neal DONNELLSON, Iowa (Aug. 17) – Abe Huls was the winner for the 100th time in his career Friday, prevailing at Pepsi Lee County Speedway. Kevin Koontz and Cody McClure made up the front row but fourth starting John Oliver Jr. grabbed the lead and set the early pace out front while the rest of the field battled two- and sometimes three-wide behind him. Huls, who started fifth and fell back to sixth on the opening circuit, worked himself into the runner up spot on lap five and then went to work on Oliver for the top spot. Huls tried to work under Oliver as the two raced side-by-side around the 3/8-mile oval. Oliver was able to hold him off until lap 12, when Huls edged out front. Oliver stayed glued to Huls’ back bumper over the final laps but was unable to get by Huls for the win. Huls held on for his career 100th victory and sixth local win of the season ahead of Oliver, Jeremy Pundt and Beau Taylor. Bill Roberts [Read More]


Multi-tasker Shryock tops Lee County IMCA Frostbuster feature

DONNELLSON, Iowa (April 11) – Kelly Shryock multi-tasked Wednesday night, mastering lapped traffic while outrunning Hunter Marriott in the IMCA Modified Frostbuster main event at Lee County Speedway. Shryock started fourth and led the last 21 of 25 circuits at Donnellson, taking the $1,000 checkers ahead of Marriott – up from 11th starting – and Cayden Carter. “I picked the smoothest lane and tried to be consistent,” Shryock said following his first win of the season and IMCA career 82nd. “I was lucky and had a good starting position. Hunter has been pretty fast and when he got to second it was ‘Oh boy, here we go,’ but I was able to hold him off.” Shryock ran the extreme high line going into the first turn and dropped down to the middle groove in the second set of turns, bringing Marriott along into traffic. “It’s fun to be able to negotiate through that stuff, knowing that you’ve got bogeys on your tail,” he said. Shryock was already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot. Jeff [Read More]
