MAQUOKETA, Iowa (June 16) – The checkbooks may come out soon.
Many are seeing bounties on the horizon for a handful of drivers at Maquoketa Speedway.
Daniel Waters outran the hot weather and the competition to make it four straight checkered flags in the IMCA Hobby Stocks Saturday evening on the 3/8-mile dirt oval during the Donna Heister Memorial.
“What a night at Maquoketa Speedway,” Wauters said on Facebook. “Kids got plenty of ice cream from the Little Racers Car Club, got to ride around in the Batmobile, then we got our fourth straight feature win there. Track was once again excellent and there was some exciting racing.”
Randy Byerly, Shane Oberbreckling, Dakota Simonsen and Bobby Taggart rounded out the top five in the 12-lapper.
Jeff Larson took his third consecutive QCJeeps.com IMCA Modified 20-lap main. The Freeport, Ill. ace continued his three-state hot streak with the win and topped a stellar, 26-car field.
Track champion Mitch Morris, Kory Meyer, Bryce Garnhart and Steve Johnson came next.
Joe Bonney pulled away from Mike McGarry for his second straight Ueland Auto IMCA Stock Car win. Terry Dulin, Donnie Louck and Dustin Vis followed.
Last year’s champion Matt Ryan has made the inside groove work at all the tracks he competes. Saturday was no exception picking up his first 2018 Maquoketa Andover Meat IMCA Late Model 25-lap feature.
Nick Marolf, Kelly Pestka, Jeremiah Hurst and Don Pataska followed.
Ryan won his third feature in a row overall and fourth in five nights.
Tyler Soppe took his second win of the season in B&D Pit Stop IMCA Sport Mods, ahead of Gage Neal, Jarrett Franzen, Jake Ellithorpe and Joe Grant.
Rob Harding broke Brett Marshall’s Obie’s Bar and Restaurant/B&D Liquors 4 Cylinders win streak. Marshall finished second ahead of Dillon Embree, Justin Hempstead and Tim Sibley.
A total of 87 race teams jammed the pits and racing was completed by 10 p.m.
