Morris Breaks Through At Davenport

DAVENPORT, Iowa — Friday was Family Fun Day at Davenport Speedway.

Kids were treated to inflatables and bicycle giveaways, while the adults were entertained by awesome racing action and an appearance of the Midwest Jalopies.

The Outhouse and Storage to Go Container Rentals IMCA Late Model division finally has its first repeat winner of the season. Appropriately, it is also the first winner of the season, Mitch Morris.

Mitch started sixth in the feature. When Evan Miller drove to the front of the pack, early in the race, Morris followed. On the 20th lap, Morris made his move around Miller for the lead. He pulled out to a 1.347-second lead at the checkers.

Miller held on for second with Nathan Balensiefen taking third. Matt Ryan and Joe Beal rounded out the top five.

Wangelin’s Auto IMCA Modified action saw a first-time feature winner for the year in Ben Chapman. Chapman started 10th and spent most of the 20-lap main chasing down Matt Stein.

Stein started on the pole and led the first 17 laps of the race. After Chapman took the lead, Stein had to fend off Dustin Smith to secure a second-place finish. Smith finished third followed by Mitch Way and Scotte Lemke.

Logan Veloz banked another D&K Home Products IMCA SportMod feature victory. The win was his fifth of the season.

Landen Chrestensen paid a visit to Competitive Concrete victory lane. Chrestensen scored his first Koehler Electric Outlaw Street Stock win of the year.

Jordan Miles picked off a win in the Theisen’s IMCA Hobby Stock feature.

Austin Honts swept both the heat and feature races for the Midwest Jalopies.
