Neal Claims Farley LM Shootout
FARLEY, Iowa — Showing the same speed that earned him the 2005 Deery Brothers Summer Series title, Terry Neal led flag to flag in winning Friday’s Brodix Silver Anniversary Shootout at Farley Speedway.
The 20-lap event paid $1,000 and featured a dozen drivers who have won national IMCA Late Model or Deery Series championships over the past 25 years.
Neal got into lapped traffic with two laps to go but was comfortably ahead of Mark Burgtorf at the checkered flag. Jay Johnson, Terry Schlipman and hard charger Ray Guss, Jr. followed.
Guss has already secured his second consecutive national crown, has the upper hand in his bid for a second straight series prize, and made his way from 12th starting to complete the top five.
Neal, Burgtorf, Johnson and Guss were also among the 18 drivers who qualified for Saturday’s $7,500 to win Deery Series main event during the Yankee Dirt Track Classic special at Farley.
Terry Neal, Mark Burgtorf, Jay John¬son, Terry Schlipman, Ray Guss, Jr., Jeremy Grady, Darrel DeFrance, Jeff French, Boone McLaugh¬lin, Curt Martin, Mike Smith, Denny Osborn.
