Jackson County Part of Dirt Classic
Jackson County Speedway--Maqoketa,IA 9/9/06 by Ed Potter - Fans braved a cool
and windy evening to come to the Iowa Wireless Dirt Clasic at Jackson County
Speedway Saturday and got to see a twnety-five lap feature and two fifty lap
features. The twenty five lapper came in the Street Stock division and had third
heat winner, Luke Miller take the early lead. On an eighth lap restart Miller
hit an infield tire in turn two to bring out the caution again. This time on the
restart Miller spun in turn four to bring out a second caution by himself and
was forced to retire from the event. On this restart Mike Driscoll took over the
lead and held on through five more cautions. With five laps to go Jon Poll edged
out front and led the rest of the way for the victory. Dirscoll held on for
second with Cory Bauer third, Donovan Lodge fourth and first heat winner, Brian
Bonney fifth. Rob Henry won the other heat as Mike Shrope took the consi win.
Pole sitter, Ray Cox Jr took the lead of the Modified feature on the drop of the
green, but on a fifth lap restart Jeff Morris charged out front in a diferent
car than he had won the night before in at Davenport Speedway. Morris went on to
lead the following forty-five laps to take his second big pay off in two nights.
On lap forty-two K.C. Ansel rolled his car off turn four to draw the field up
tight. Ansel was shaken up a little, but was OK. Following Moris across the
finish line Cox held on for second. Doing double duty, Donovn Lodge took third
witn Jim Willert fourth and John Bull fifth. Tony VonDresky, Morris, and Lodge
won the heats with Bart Miller taking the consi.
Rob Toland drew lucky number two for the Late Model feature starting spot and
made it pay off as he led all fifty lap for the win. At lap seventeen Terry Neal
flew off turn one to bring out the races fourth caution and send Neal to the
rear. At about the mid race point Jeff Aikey, who was battling in the top three
brought out the caution and retired from the event. On the restart Rob's son
Bobby Toland moved into second and it became a father and son show. Bobby took
second with Chuck Mayerhofer third, Darrell DeFrance fourth and Neal coming back
up to take fifth. The heats were won by Ron Gustaf, Rick Wages, and Gary Webb
while Ryan Duhme won the consi. For the last laps of the feature a light mist
was in the air, but the rain held off until after the checkers had flown.

Cheaaters Prevail at Jackson
Jackson County Speedway--Maquoketa, Iowa 9/2/06 by Ed Potter - Saturday
evening at Jackson County Speedway was the Night of Destruction Trailer Race,
but before the Trailer race hit the track it was also Cheater's Night for five
classes of race cars. Some of the more obvious configurations of course were in
the V8 Modified division, with a few in the street Stock class. The first class
of cars to hit the race track were the 4 Stocks After a couple of cautions on
the first two laps, which sent five cars to the pits the race went the rest of
the way caution free with Brannon Bechen leading all the way to take the win.
Justin Kay came home second with Mike McGarry third, Tim Hazen fourth and Shane
Marcov fifth. Marcov came from the tewnty-second starting spot to take that
spoit in the top five. Dustin Kay, Bechen and Dan Mohr won the heat races.
The Trophpy Trucks did not have a class of thier own and had to become part of
the Hobby Stock division. Alan Staskal started on the front row in his truck and
led the first lap with Rick Brokus taking over on lap two. At about the mid-way
point of the race with Brokus still leading and Staskal still in the top five
Alan rolled his truck in turn one bringing out the caution. On the restart
Brokus went back out front and on for the victory with Corey Rupp in hot
pursuit. Rupp took second with Kevin Brame third. Eric Yule was fourth on his
first visit to the speedway this year with Jeff Specht taking fifth. Heat race
wins went to Rupp, Neil Patchin and Brokus.
Attrition had a lot to do with the B Modified feature and turn one once more was
the spot. Before a lap was scored an eight car pile up which incloded Tom Pestka
rolling his car, took seven cars out of the race. Mike Baker led the first lap
when the race got going again, but when the caution flew again at lap two Baker
left the track with no brakes. The field was now down to nine cars with one of
them being two laps down. On the restart Ben Traver took over the point with
Jarrett Franzen getting by on lap five. As the cauton flew again at lap seven
the race was called over. Jarrett took the win with Traver second. Keith Feller
was third followed by Mike Fuller and Johnny Walker. Baker, Rick Galloway and
Franzen took the heat wins.
The Street Stock race looked like it might go caution free, but that didn't
happen. Pole sitter Andrew Chelf grabbed the lead but couldn't hold off the hard
charging Randy Exline. Exline moved out front on lap four and soon had Cory
Bauer putting the pressure on him. As these two leaned on each other all the way
down the back chute on the white flag lap Chelf was still right there to take
advantage of any mistakes. In turn four Exline and Bauer got into each other
enough to slow both of them down and Chelf went back by to take the win as the
caution flew for the first time in this race as Bauer and Exline piled up in
turn one bringing four other cars with them. Heat wins went to Exline, Josh
Wilson and Mitch Schmitz.
After winning the V8 Modified heat race Bob Dominacki drew lucky chip number two
for his strting spot in the feature. Bob took his winged modified to the front
and led all twenty laps for the victory, with Donovan Lodge right on his tail
with another winged modified. Jim Willert, without wings took third with Tony
VonDresky fourth and Kelly Pestka fifth.
A ten bus school bus race was then run with Garry Anderson taking the win in his
Mechanics races came next with an unknown driver taking the 4 Stock division.
Steve Harms of Onslow won the Street Stock mechanics race with Terry Specht of
Baldwin taking the Modified race. Powder Puff races were won by Ananda Duttbarn
of Bernard, Megan Sparrgrove of Bernard and Stacey Kinion of Monmouth. The
night's main course then hit the track as vehicles of all types hit the track
with each one pulling a troiler. As the mayhem got under way the track was soon
covered with debris all the way around. Randy Shanahan felt some heat in his
truck and pulled down to the edge of the track to bail out, which was a good
thing as the truck was burned to the ground as fuel leaked out of control.
Maquoketa Fire and Rescue Finally had to be called in to get the fire under
control. When the race resumed about eight vehicles were still running and as
they slowly dropped out the last two finally were checkered flagged for a tie.
Dan Pataska and Derrick Miller were the winners.
