Packed Pits at the Quad City Speedway

Quad City SpeedwayBy: Brad Hines

East Moline, IL. (5/18/14) – A stellar field of 103 cars checked in to compete at the Quad City Speedway Sunday night. The Toppert Services IMCA Modifieds had a stout 28 cars, while the Riverbend Pizza Place 4-Cylinders had a solid 22 cars, U-Pull-A-Part/Cimco IMRA Midget Lites had 16 cars, Weber Auto Group Street Stocks had 15 cars, Eriksen Chevrolet Buick IMCA Late Models had 14 cars and 9 cars in the McDonald’s Mod Lites.

Feature racing action got underway with the 15 lap U-Pull-A-Part/Cimco IMRA Midget Lite feature. Auburn, IL’s, Mitchell Davis used the first six laps to figure out the top side of the track was going to be the fastest. After starting 11th in the feature Davis was in the lead by lap seven. Davis went on to collect his second win of the season at QCS. Billy Brickley took second followed Patrick Brauns. Heat race winners were Brickley and Robert Bell.

The McDonald’s Mod Lites’ 12 lap feature was on tap next. Dan Guss held off stiff competition from Coralville’s Dan Keltner and Colona’s Jason Masengarb to pilot his 8G car to victory lane. Keltner held off Masengarb for second. Keltner also won the heat race.

Once the Weber Auto Group Street Stocks got their 15 lap feature going it turned out to be one of the best features of the night. Rock Island’s Rick Schriner took full advantage of his outside front row starting spot to take the lead. Schriner held off an early charge from Jeremy Gustaf and a late charge from Rob Nylin and Steven Jackson. Nylin and Jackson came all the way from the back of the pack to challenge for the lead. Schriner would take checkered first followed by Nylin and Jackson. Heat race winners were Chad Coyne and Jarett Franzen.

After three heat races and two consolation races, 20 cars were ready to start the Toppert Services IMCA Modified 20 lap feature. Colona’s Matt Werner grabbed the lead right away from his outside front row starting spot. Werner was challenged for the lead early on by Jason Bahrs and Justin Veloz. After a lap 10 caution, that bunched the field back, Rock Island’s Doug Crampton made his move towards the front. Coming from the 8th starting spot, Crampton moved to the high side of the track and by lap 18 he had the lead and would go on to win. Werner and Veloz battled side by side for second with Veloz taking second followed by Werner. Heat race winners were Joe Jones Jr., Werner, and Bahrs. Consolation race winners were T.J. Patz and Todd Dykema.

The Eriksen Chevrolet Buick IMCA Late Models thundered on the track next for their 30 lap main event. A couple Quad City Speedway legends, Mike Cothron and Gary Webb battled early on for the lead but it was Green Rock’s Mike Murphy Jr. that charged from his 7th starting spot to take control of the lead by lap 6. Murphy would go untouched the final 24 laps and take home the victory. Ray Guss Jr., in a borrowed car (Nate Beuseling’s #46), ran side by side for several laps with Davenport’s Matt Ryan battling for second. Guss would finish second followed by Ryan. Heat race winners were Todd Malmstrom and Murphy.

The Riverbend Pizza Place 4-Cylinders rolled out for the last feature of the night. Davenport’s Zach Dahl led wire to wire even after a lap 8 caution bunched the field back up and gave hard charging Brandt Cole another shot at the lead. Cole would take second followed by Andy Loy. Heat race winners were Brandon Dahl, Cole, and Z. Dahl.

Racing continues next Sunday, May 25th, for a Memorial Day weekend special featuring the 21st Annual Gary Reinhart Memorial paying $1,200 to win and $175 to start the Toppert Services IMCA Modified 30 lap feature. Also racing will be the Eriksen Chevrolet Buick IMCA Late Models, Riverbend Pizza Place 4-Cylinders, and McDonald’s Mod Lites. Grandstand admission will be $12 for adults, $6 for kids 6 to 12, and kids 5 and under are free. Hot laps are at 5:15pm with racing to follow.
