Berry and Glick take two in a row, Reynolds stays perfect

It was Wolf Seeds night at the Marshalltown Speedway and with 125 cars checked in, it made for another full night of racing action.

Three drivers scored their first wins of the year at the High Banks: Johnathon Logue winning the IMCA Northern SportMod feature, Damon Murty getting his first victory of the season in the IMCA Stock Car division, and Curtis Glover made his first visit to victory lane in the IMCA Late Models. Tom Berry, Jr. made it two in a row in the IMCA Modified class as did Joe Glick in the Mod Lites, and Kaden Reynolds has a perfect four for four in the IMCA Hobby Stocks.

Joe Glick started sixth, and made it look easy when he took the Mod Lite feature win. Glick took the lead with just three laps in the books, scoring his second win in a row. Glick finished well ahead of second place Mike Morrill. Randy Bryan was third, Bryan Zehm was fourth, and Jason Masongarb, Colona, Illinois came from tenth starting spot to round out the top five.

Johnathon Logue made the bottom side work to his advantage, finding just enough moisture to make it work in the IMCA Northern SportMod 18-lap event. Logue started ninth on the grid, caught leader Brayton Carter, making the pass with four laps remaining, and then sailed his #69jr to victory. Carter finished as the runner up, Jenae Gustin came from eighth to finish third, Tony Olson was fourth, and Travis Petersen took fifth. This was Logue’s first trip to the winner’s circle this year at the speedway.

The 15-lap IMCA Hobby Stock race was red flagged before even one lap was scored. Luke Bird found himself upside down on the back stretch when things got too tight. He was okay, and racing action soon returned. Ray Fees led the field to green but it didn’t take long until Cincinnati, Iowa’s Mike Kincaid came calling, and took over the top spot. Kincaid sailed along with a nice lead but Kaden Reynolds was methodically reeling him in. Reynolds made a slide work to his advantage, and put himself to the lead at lap thirteen, never to look back. Reynolds scored another win, Kincaid having to settle for second. Aaron Martin was third, fourth went to Ben Newhouse, and Carter Koop, Mason City started nineteenth, and made his first time ever trip to the track pay off with a fifth place showing. Reynolds, who started twelfth, has a perfect season going having won all four races so far this year.

Another first time winner at the track was Curtis Glover. Glover led all 15-laps of the IMCA Late Model A main, and won it going away. Last week’s winner Dalton Simonsen finished second, Logan Duffy took third, hometown boy Darrel DeFrance finished fourth, and Jill George was fifth. The race went caution free.

Damon Murty claimed the topside as his own again, sweeping to the win in the IMCA Stock Cars. Murty started tenth, took to the rim of the track and overtook then leader Dusty Vis at lap nine. Son Dallon Murty followed his dad’s lead, rim riding his way to second place after starting ninth. Kyle Everts came from eighth starting spot to finish third, fourth went to Steve Meyers, and early leader Dusty Vis was fifth. This was Damon Murty’s first win of the 2020 season at the High Banks. The race went green to checkers.

The IMCA Modifieds followed up with their own flag to flag 20-lap main event to end the night’s racing. Nevada, Iowa’s Paul Nagel led the early portion of the feature and looked good in a Modified this season after a recent stint behind the wheel of a Late Model. Nagel held tight to that top spot, but behind him, eleventh place starter Tom Berry, Jr. was flying and reeling him in fast. The two fought it out for several laps until Berry was able to make the pass into the lead with a handful of laps remaining, and then pulled away to finish easily ahead of second place Nagel. Tim Ward took third, Jared VanDeest was fourth, and Sam Weiben, fifth.

Next week there will be racing two nights at the Marshalltown Speedway. Thursday night, July 9 is the third annual Dale DeFrance Memorial race as well as the 500th start for Darrel DeFrance in the final IMCA Deery Brothers Late Model race. It will also be a Speed Shift TV Dirt Knights IMCA Modified tour race. The IMCA Stock Cars, Northern SportMods, and Hobby Stocks are also on tap. Then on Friday, July 10, it will be another regular night of racing action with all regular classes taking to the track. The green flag drops both nights at 7:30 p.m.
