Rust, Dallon Murty, Carter and Bryan post wins, Reynolds remains unbeaten

Rain on Thursday washed out what was to be the first of two races at the Marshalltown Speedway this week, when the Dale DeFrance Memorial race, as well as the 500th and final IMCA Deery Brothers Late Model race, fell victim to the rain. That race will be made up on September 17, the first of three consecutive nights of the annual World Nationals. Friday’s show was Williamson Repair Night at the speedway, and went on as usual.

It was a Fast Shafts Qualifier for the IMCA Modifieds and a $1,000 payday for the winner. Joel Rust would take home that win. Brayton Carter won going away in the IMCA Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature. Young Dallon Murty put on quite a show for the fans when he won the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car main event. Kaden Reynolds continues with his perfect season in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, but under strange circumstances, and Randy Bryan went home with his first win of the season at the High Banks in the Mod Lites.

Randy Bryan started seventh in the 15-lap Mod Lite feature, swung to the topside of the track, and took the lead by lap five. Cory Sonner and Johnathan Braathun dogged the leader for much of the race, the final circuits finding Braathun peeking under the high running Bryan in a last ditch challenge, but could only chase winner Bryan across the finish line in second place. Cory Sonner finished in third, Zac Forster, Bakersfield, California, started 11th and finished fourth, and Ryan Mills, Des Moines, Iowa, was fifth. This was Bryan’s first win of the 2020 season at the speedway.

The IMCA SportMods rolled to the track next for their 18-lap feature. Polesitter Dylan VanWyk shot off to the lead immediately, but by lap two, it was eighth place starter Brayton Carter on his tail. Carter saw his chance as lap six was about to be scored when he swung under VanWyk to take over the lead. From there on, Carter would stretch out his lead to take the easy win. VanWyk was scored in second, third went to 10th-place starter Jenae Gustin, fourth was Tony Olson, and Johnathon Logue came from 11th starting spot to finish fifth. This was Carter’s first trip to victory lane this year.

The IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks ran their 15-lap A main next, and the way the cars crossed under the checkers did not reflect the final outcome. Mike Kincaid pushed his fast hot rod from 12th starting spot and into the lead at lap six, and then would pull away to cross the finish line first. Following him across to finish in second, was 14th-place starter Austin Mehmen. Unbeaten so far this season, Kaden Reynolds started dead last in 24th position, and crossed in third place. Fourth place finisher Solomon Bennett came from 11th starting spot, and Aaron Rudolph came from 20th, and crossed in fifth place. However, winner Kincaid, as well as second-place finisher Mehmen did not pass post race inspection. This would then hand over the win to Kaden Reynolds, keeping his string of five races in a row, and a perfect season going. Solomon Bennett was then awarded the runner up spot, Aaron Rudolph was third, Gary Pfantz fourth, and veteran racer Bill Bonnett would complete the official top five.

Lady racer Leah Wroten would lead the early portion of the 18-lap IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature, holding off Dusty Vis. When a yellow flew at lap 13, Wroten was still in command, Vis in second, and now ninth-place starter, young Dallon Murty was setting in third. That restart was all it took for young Murty to seize the moment, taking the lead just before lap 14 was scored. The closing laps would find Murty pulling away to score the win well ahead of second place Dusty Vis. Todd Reitzler took third, fourth went to early leader Leah Wroten, and the winner’s father, Damon Murty chalked up a fifth place finish. This was Dallon Murty’s first win at the track this year.

There was not only a $1,000 waiting for the winner of the 25-lap IMCA Modified feature, but also a chance to be on the ballot for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational at the IMCA Super Nationals. Tim Ward wasted no time in getting to the front from his second row starting position, sweeping to the lead by lap three after going topside. Ward continued his run at the front of the pack, and stretching his lead. However a caution at lap 10 would tighten the field, and by this time 12th-place starter Joel Rust had made his way into second place. When the race restarted, it was a close fought battle between the two, until Rust took command at lap fifteen. From there on it was Rust out in front the rest of the way to the checkers and the win. Ward had to be content with the runner-up spot. Tom Berry, Jr. came from 17th to finish third, fourth was Kollin Hibdon, and Ethan Braaksma hard charged through the field from starting 22nd to complete the top five. This was Rust’s second win at Marshalltown this year.

Racing continues next Friday night, July 17 when the green flag drops at 7:30 p.m.
