Gustin Brothers Battle At Marshalltown
MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa – Racing action finally returned to Marshalltown Speedway after being rained out two straight weeks.
The night would see some great two, three and even four wide racing all night which lead to several exciting finishes in the features on Kruse Family Night.
Jon Snyder jumped into the early lead in the AMSOIL IMCA Modified feature but it would be Richie Gustin getting by on lap four. Snyder stayed close before falling back meanwhile Jimmy Gustin and Luke Wanninger was working there way up to second and third. Richie Gustin, Jimmy Gustin and Luke Wanninger got into a three car battle for the top spot.
Richie Gustin held on to the lead until Jimmy Gustin would make the clean pass off turn four coming to the checkers. Jimmy Gustin would get the win with his brother Richie Gustin holding off Luke Wanninger for second. Ronn Lauritzen and Adam Larson rounded out the top five.
After having the initial start called back it was Damon Murty jumping to the lead in the Mike’s Hard Lemonade IMCA Stock Cars Feature. Murty began to pull away a little bit but right behind him was some great battle for positions. When the caution waved on lap 16 setting up a green-white-checkered finish, Murty would have Derek Reimer, Tracy Gienger, Michael Murphy and Steve Meyer right behind him on the restart. Murty managed to hold off everybody to take the win over Tracy Gienger, Michael Murphy, Steve Meyer and Derek Reimer.
