Marolf dominates late models at SIS


A beautiful day made for a great night at of racing at the Mahaska County Monster located at the Southern Iowa Fairgrounds. 
There were two-, three- and four-wide racing through out the night and that made for some great races. Also on hand for the night was the Mississippi Valley Vintage  Racing Association for exhibition races.
In the IMCA Sport Compacts feature, it was Trent Orwig grabbing the early lead before Merv Chandler grabbed the lead on lap 4. Chandler went on to take his fourth win of the season over John Whalen, Bill Whalen Jr., Kassidy Kirkpatrick and Matt Moore.
Todd Reitzler grabbed the lead in the Budweiser IMCA Stock Car feature, but just after the completion of lap one, the caution waved. Reitzler resumed command but had his handsful the remainder of the way as he had Damon Murty and Zack Vanderbeek on his back bumper when it came to end. Reitzler took the win with Murty in second, Vanderbeek in third, Rich Vogt in fourth and Brad Pinkerton in fifth.
Nick Marolf started on the pole and took full advantage of that in the KBOE Radio IMCA Late Models feature. Marolf had pulled away until lap traffic slow him down a bit that allowed Todd Cooney to chase him down. Just as it appeared Marolf was going to take an easy win, the caution waved forcing a green-white-checkered finish when Dylan Book lost a drive shaft coming off turn 4. Marolf held off Cooney on the restart to take the win. Tommy Elston, Spencer Diercks and Darrel DeFrance rounded out the top 5.
Richie Gustin jumped to the lead in the Musco Lighting IMCA Modifieds feature and just after one lap was completed, the caution waved for Casey Greubel losing the handle. Gustin didn’t let that bother him as he resumed command and appeared to be going on to the easy win until the caution waved two more times on lap 14 and 15. Gustin held off challenges from Cayden Carter and Scott Dickey the remaining laps to take the win. Carter finished second, Dickey was third, Brandon Banks came home fourth and Tyler Vandekamp was fifth.
