Kay and Nezworski win late model features at Davenport

DAVENPORT, Ia. (July 21, 2023) – It was a full night of racing action Friday at Davenport Speedway. With the pit area full of cars and two make-up features from July 7th, a whole lot of laps were turned on the dirt oval.

Justin Kay won the make-up feature in the Petersen Plumbing & Heating IMCA Late Model division. Justin took the lead from Jeff Classen on lap four and never looked back. Matt Ryan was closest to Kay, but would settle for second. Mike Goben had a solid run in third, followed by Andy Nezworski and CJ Horn.

In this week’s main, Andy Nezworski claimed his second feature win on the season. Andy started tenth and grabbed the top spot on lap eight. Justin Kay gave chase, but would finish 1.76 seconds behind Nezworski. Matt Ryan would finish a distant third with Gary Webb and CJ Horn rounding out the top five.

Spencer Diercks won the Eriksen Chevrolet IMCA Modified feature in Ryan Duhme’s car. Diercks started 12th and quickly moved up to first by lap nine. Spencer rode the high side of the racetrack en route to the win. Charlie Mohr also used the high line to finish second. Matt Werner took third, nearly four seconds back. Early race leader Mitch Way finished fourth with Brandon Jewell fifth.

Logan Veloz had to work for his fourth Matzen Trucking IMCA SportMod feature win of the season. After starting twelfth, Logan’s progress slowed as he tried to pass early race leader Cole Stichter. Veloz was finally able to finish the pass on lap eleven. Stichter held on to finish second. Levi Heath would take third followed by Kasey Williams in fourth and Trey Grimm fifth.

Jeff Struck Jr. collected the win in the Koehler Electric Outlaw Street Stock make-up feature. Cary brown led the first three laps with Nick Hixson leading the next five. Struck then took over securing his fourth win of the season. Hixson finished second while Tony VonDresky drove to a third place finish. Landen Chrestensen and Jake Lund were fourth and fifth respectively.

This week’s Street Stock main saw Tony VonDresky cruise to his first Street Stock win of the season. Tony started seventh, passing Joe Bonney for the lead on lap nine. Jeff Stuck came up to pressure VonDresky in the final laps, but would finish second. Bonney held on for third. Nick Hixson and Shad Murphy completed the top five.

Justin Kay scored the win in the Kunes Nissan IMCA Stock Car feature. Justin jumped out to the early lead and led all fifteen of the main. Matt Ryan took a run at Kay on a mid-race restart, but would have to settle for second. Third went to Perry Gellerstedt followed by Keegan Wells and Tad Payne.

Another week, another win for Cyle Hawkings in QCjeeps.com Sport Compact main. Hawkins wasted no time going from fifth starting position to the lead in just four laps.
