Diercks wins again at the Southern Iowa Speedway on Supreme Lawn and Landscape Night

OSKALOOSA —

Another Wednesday night with very questionable weather all day and night. 
A few hours before race time mother nature dropped a good shower to help with the moisture on the race track but that didn’t prevent the race action from happening on Supreme Lawn and Landscape Night at the Races.
More items were auction off before and during the intermission for Mark Widmar including two-seater sprint car rides with Tyler Groenendyk. 
Iowa Speedway’s Craig Armstrong was also in attendance on the night. 
Also the track crowned the most popular driver as four drivers were in the top 4 and they were Nathan Wood, Dustin Griffiths, Kris Walker and Bobby Greene.
Spencer Diercks grabbed the lead early and never looked back to take the win in the KBOE Radio IMCA Late Models 20-lap feature, that went green-to-checkered. 
Todd Cooney passed Nick Marolf on lap 2 to take the runner up position but couldn’t catch the 16-year-old Diercks. Marolf finished third, Darrel DeFrance finish fourth and Kurt Kile was fifth. Next race for the late models at SIS is on Wednesday, June 19.
“Hollywood” Brandon Banks started on the outside row in the Musco Lighting IMCA Modified feature. Banks grabbed the lead early and started to pull away but then caution waved when Steve Pumphrey spun in turn 4. Banks got a great restart and started to pull away and then caution waved again on lap 7 for debris. That caution didn’t faze, Banks as he again got a great restart and started to pull away until the caution waved again on lap 12 when Bill Gibson saw his engine expire. Banks looked to go on to the win but then a caution came out just after the white flag forcing a green-white-checkered finish. On the final restart, Banks slipped up on the exit of turn 4 that allowed Tyler Groenendyk to slip by. Groenendyk went on to take the win over Banks, Bill Davis Jr., Cayden Carter and Todd Hansen.
