Make It Five Wins For Kay At Davenport
DAVENPORT, Iowa – The racing was side-by-side and sometimes four wide on what turned out to be a beautiful night for racing at Davenport Speedway.
The evening yielded three repeat winners, two first-timers, and a pair of victors in the powder puff races.
Justin Kay collected win number five in Petersen Plumbing & Heating IMCA Late Model action. Justin took the lead from Joe Zrostlik on a lap seven restart and never looked back. Mike Zemo Jr. finished in the runner-up spot. Brunson Behning, Joe Zrostlik, and Todd Malmstrom completed the top five, in that order.
In the Milan Heating and Air IMCA Modified feature, Joe Beal paid his first visit to victory lane in 2014. Beal got by Dean McGee on a lap five restart to take the lead.

VonDresky held on for second, with Dean McGee finishing third. Brian Bushong and Doug Crampton rounded out the top five.
