Diercks, Veloz, and Reynolds take home Davenport cash

DAVENPORT, Ia. (April 21, 2023) – The Koehler Electric Season Opener was a chilly one. Friday’s racing program included six classes of racing. Three of the classes, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA SportMods, and IMCA Stock Cars, each paid $1,000-to-win in their respective features.

Justin Kay took home a victory in the Petersen Plumbing & Heating IMCA Late Model division. Kay started mid-pack and had to work his way up to early race leader Andy Nezworski, before he could make a pass for the lead. Once in front, the only thing that held Justin back was lapped traffic.

Nezworski held on to finish second, with Fred Remley taking third. Colton Leal and Mack Mulvany rounded out the top five.

Kay, Nezworski, and Chuck Hanna won late model heat races.

Spencer Diercks led only one lap of the Eriksen Chevrolet IMCA Modified feature, the last one. Diercks made a bold, last lap pass of Jeff ‘Bone’ Larson to claim the win. Larson would finish a very close second, after leading 18 of the first 19 laps of the race. Larson was followed to the checkers by Tim Ward, Matt Werner, and Jarrett Brown, in that order.

Logan Veloz dominated the Matzen Trucking IMCA SportMods. After winning his heat race, Logan drew the pole for the feature and then led all twenty laps for the win. Tony Olson drove from seventh starting position to finish second. Jarrett Franzen finished third. Shane Paris and Cam Reimers were fourth and fifth respectively.

Jacob Ellithorpe jumped out to the early race lead in the IMCA Stock Car main. Ellithorpe led the first thirteen laps of the twenty-lap race, but would be forced to retire early. Kaden Reynolds took over the lead and would hold it to the checkers. David Brandies emerged from the pack to finish second. Tanner Allen, Gage Neal, and Jeff Struck Jr. completed the first five.

Zach Zuberbier led every lap of the Koehler Electric Street Stock feature. Zach finished more than a second ahead of second place Jesse Owen. Nick Hixson took third, ahead of Shad Murphy and Cary Brown.

Cyle Hawkins was in mid-season form as he held off Dustin Forbes and Shawn McDermott to win the QCjeeps.com Sport Compact feature. Hawkins started tenth and had moved up to first by lap four en route to the win. Trent Lebarge took fourth with Brandon Setser fifth.

The exciting racing action continues next Friday night, April 28th. In addition to our six weekly classes of racing, the Midwest Jalopies will make an appearance. This is a must see, as the vintage coupes of sixty years ago will once again take to the Davenport dirt.
