    DAVENPORT, Ia. (May 25, 2018) – Rob Toland made two trips to victory lane Friday night at the Davenport Speedway. Toland captured both the IMCA Late Model and the IMCA Modified features.
    In the Petersen Plumbing & Heating IMCA Late Model main, Joe Beal led lap one. After that, it was all Toland. Late in the race, Matt Ryan made things interesting as he passed Chuck Hanna for second, but didn’t have enough laps left to make a serious bid for the lead. Following the lead duo were Hanna, Chad Holladay, and Nick Marolf, in that order.
    Chad Holladay and Andy Nezworski were late model heat winners.
    The Eriksen Chevrolet IMCA Modified feature had a similar story. Derek Wilson grabbed the early lead from the pole. Wilson survived the first restart, but the second on lap five saw Toland go to the front. Rob led the rest of the way to the checkers.
    Bruce Hanford would settle for second over Matt Werner. Chris Zogg finished fourth with Bob Dominacki fifth.
    Koehler Electric Street Stock action saw Jeff Struck Jr. win his fourth straight feature race. Struck needed thirteen laps to track down and pass DeWayne Smith Jr. for the lead. Gene Ehlers drove to a third place finish. Fourth would go to Jesse Owen and Mike Anderson completed the first five.
    Hawkeye Auto IMCA SportMods started and ended the racing program. The make-up feature from last week saw Matt Fulton hold off the rest of the field to take his first victory of the season. Keith Blum and Tony Olson were second and third respectively. Pole sitter Troy Wages finished fourth just ahead of Mike Goben.
    This week’s caution-filled feature saw only eight of the fifteen laps get completed. Justin Veloz survived the restarts and take his first checkers at Davenport. The cautions scrambled the remainder of the field. Mike Adam took second over Henry Carson in third. Mitch Strayer and Tony Olson rounded out the top five.
    Next Friday, June 1st weekly point racing tops the agenda at Davenport Speedway. All four classes will be in action.
