MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa – On Friday night at Marshalltown Speedway the gang from Racers Against ALS was in attendance to aware people about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, which is a degenerative disease affecting nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, its also known to many people as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
They had t-shirts for sale and Former Iowa Hawkeye Football Player Brad Banks was on hand to sign some autographs. Meanwhile as for the racing on the track, the race track was wide and many races throughout the night they were racing two, three and even four wide.
David Moorman grabbed the early lead in the IMCA Sport Compacts feature when John Gill and Merv Chandler got together on the front stretch. That brought out the yellow and it was Moorman pulling away and really never looking back in the 10 lapper. Moorman took his first win since Aug. 24, 2012. Chandler worked his way back up to finish second, Gill finished third, Joe Alday was fourth and Chad Larson was fifth.
In the Toby K’s Hideaway Mod Lites feature, it was Jimmy May grabbing the early lead but just after the completion of lap one the caution waved when Bryan Zehm came to a rest on the backstretch. May continued to lead until his son Josh May snuck by on lap five. Josh May went on to take his fifth win of the season at MoTown. Mike Morrill worked his way by Jimmy May for second. Andy Hennigar was fourth and Mike Kennedy was fifth.
Mike’s Hard Lemonade IMCA Hobby Stocks feature saw Eric Larson grab the lead but just after the completion of lap one. Larson got a great restart however through the field they were racing pretty hard which lead to Jennifer Hulin to cut a left rear tire down. Just after the completion of lap two, Hulin was trying to get off the race track too a sharp right and spun out before rolling over, she climbed from the car but her night came to an end.
Larson this time didn’t get quite as good restart as Eric Stanton stayed in tow before grabbing the lead on lap five by a bumper. Stanton finally grabbed the lead fully on lap six and went on to take his second win despite a caution with just three laps to go. Bill Bonnett started tenth but found his way in the runner up position. Eric Larson, Austin Luellen and Scott Durling rounded out the top five.
