Published on

(Bill W) June 3, 2022 – After rain dashed plans for a Sprint Invaders opener at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa last Friday, the series will try again tonight.

This will mark the 51st event for the Sprint Invaders at Lee County Speedway.  In 2021, Paul Nienhiser won for the second time in his career at the 3/8-mile oval, and Colton Fisher picked up his first career win with the Sprint Invaders there.  Kaley Gharst leads the all-time series win list at Lee County with six, followed by John Schulz (5), Matt Sutton and Terry McCarl (4), and Jeff Mitrisin and Randy Martin (3).  Drivers joining Nienhiser with two wins in Donnellson are Bobby Hawks, Jesse Giannetto, Russ Hall and Jerrod Hull.

Gates open on Friday at 5:30 p.m., with hot laps scheduled for 7 on Friday in Donnellson.  Grandstand tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors (60+), $10 for veterans and students (11-17), and kids 10 and under are FREE.  IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, IMCA SportMods and IMCA Sport Compacts will also be in action.  For more information on Lee County Speedway, visit www.LeeCountySpeedway.com.
