Hogan Conquers Davenport Dirt


DAVENPORT, Iowa — Scott Hogan claimed the headlining IMCA modified feature as 131 race cars, including 43 modifieds were on hand Friday night at Davenport Speedway.

Hogan used lapped traffic to pass Darin Duffy, who led the first 47 laps, on lap 48 and take home the first-place cash.

Duffy would hang on for second, with Doug Crampton advancing from the consi to finish third. Richie Gustin and Chris Zogg completed the top five.

The Petersen Plumbing and Heating IMCA Late Model feature was another dandy. Ray Guss Jr. and Matt Ryan raced side-by-side for the lead throughout the first nine laps, swapping the lead several times. Guss would take the lead and hold it until lap 13, when Nate Bueseling swept by for the lead. Bueseling had to hold off a charging Justin Kay to take the win.

Kay would settle for second. Guss finished third and was followed by Ryan and Spencer Diercks.

Gerald Ward was the cream of the crop in the Koehler Electric Street Stock action. Ward took the lead on lap four of the 15-lapper. Ward and Keith Blum would exchange the lead twice in the final three laps with Ward taking the victory. Blum, in his first appearance at Davenport this season, finished second. Donnie Louck finished third, ahead of Cary Brown and Cord Williams.

The Hawkeye Auto IMCA SportMod main had a bizarre finish as race leader Austin Moyer tangled with a spinning car as they came to the white flag. Bryce Garnhart was credited with the victory of the shortened race. Tyler Soppe finished second with Henry Carson third. Jacob Ellithorpe and Joe Grant completed the top five.

Andy Loy captured the win in the Roto-Rooter 4-Stock feature.
