Farley Deery checkers are first in a decade for Martin

April 17th, 2016

FARLEY, Iowa – A hero from the early days of the Deery Brothers Summer Series turned backed the clock Friday at Farley Speedway. Curt Martin led the last 35 of 50 laps in winning the IMCA tour feature and $2,000.
Forty-two Late Models were entered.

The 1990 and 1991 Deery champion had last won a series event in May of 2006 at Highway 3 Raceway in Allison. The Farley checkers, Martin’s tour career 26th, came in a car Doug Cue and Gene Budzine bought as a backup for Tyler Droste to run weekly at Independence Motor Speedway. They’d asked Martin about shaking down the car and a test drive was in the works for Saturday at Indee.

“I asked why not take it out Friday, too,” said Martin. “This could be the oldest car and I could be the oldest driver (he’s 52) on the track. It felt awesome to win tonight. It made me feel like – I should say 30 but I’ll say like I was 40 ­– years old again. We had a lot of friends and family here so it was special to win.” Joe Zrostlik, winner of the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing, bulleted from 13th starting to a Deery career-best second place finish, two car lengths off the pace at the stripe.

Rounding out the top five were Jason Rauen, Tyler Bruening and Ryan Dolan, who’d started 19th. Matt Ryan ran second much of the way before ending in sixth and 22nd starting John Emerson was seventh. Jeremiah Hurst led the first 15 circuits before breaking. Martin took over from that point, holding Ryan and then Zrostlik at bay.

Martin is now tied with Mark Burgtorf of Quincy, Ill., for third on the all-time series career wins list and dedicated Friday’s victory to former race team partner Ron Hess, who died last month. He’ll run a partial Deery schedule this season, in addition to Saturdays at Independence.

Jon Poll paced the $300 to win Malvern Trust and Savings Bank non-qualifier Dash for Cash. Chris Zogg was the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified winner at Farley.

Night two of the weekend doubleheader takes the 30th annual Deery Series to Hamilton County Speedway for a Saturday, April 16 show and another $2,000 to win main event.

Pit gates at Webster City open at 3 p.m. The grandstand opens at 4:30 p.m., hot laps are at 5:30 p.m. and racing starts at 6 p.m. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for kids ages 6-12 and free for five and under.

Aikey tops Yankee, Kay repeats as Deery Series champion

September 23rd, 2015

FARLEY, Iowa – Jeff Aikey and Justin Kay both posted second straight wins Saturday at Farley Speedway’s Yankee Dirt Track Classic.

Aikey backed up his IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s victory with a convincing run to the $7,500 checkers ahead of Nick Marolf in the 100-lap Deery Brothers Sum­mer Series main event.

Kay finished third and cemented his second consecutive IMCA Late Model tour championship.

Scott Fitzpatrick led the first 10 times around the oval before the fourth starting Aikey took charge. Marolf was able to make up ground as Aikey worked his way patiently through lapped traffic, but was never able to catch the leader.

“I tried to keep the car as straight as I could and didn’t slide the tires. Some other guys had flats but my tires could have gone another 35 laps, easy,” Aikey said. “I’ve been to a lot of Yankees and I was impressed with the track. It didn’t rubber down and you could race all over it.”

“The car was extremely balanced. My crew set it up perfect,” Aikey added, pointing to the efforts of Dwain Homolar, Curt Wollin, Marc Homolar, Chad Kinkaid and Craig Lindsey. “”They worked their tail off so my car was tremendously good. Jiminy Christmas, we were talking about do we keep it or do we sell it. I don’t know.”

Aikey pulled away following cautions on laps 52 and 78 and raced to series career win number 66. Marolf, Kay, Richie Gustin and tour rookie of the year Tyler Droste rounded out the top five.

“I still get excited about winning,” Aikey said. “I asked Dwain if he’d be with me long enough to get to 100 and he just laughed. We’ll go as long as we can go.”

Making his 451st consecutive start and keeping his Deery Brothers perfect attendance streak in­tact through 29 seasons, Darrel DeFrance won the last-chance qualifying feature as well as the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing.

While the Friday program was rained out, Saturday’s Yankee show brought 59 Late Models to Farley, the top entry number for the series this season.

Farley’s Friday Yankee Dirt Track Classic program falls to rain

September 19th, 2015

FARLEY, Iowa ­– Rain is the winner tonight at Farley Speedway.

The complete Saturday program is still on as scheduled along with the addition of Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod qualifying. Hot laps are at 4:30 p.m. with racing to follow.

Touring IMCA Late Models will chase checks of $7,500 to win and a minimum of $500 to start their 100-lap series finale tomorrow night while the Hawkeye Dirt Tour feature for Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds pays $2,000 to win and a minimum of $175 to start.

Justin Kay of Wheatland clinches a second consecutive Deery Series crown with tonight’s rainout. Just four points separate Kyle Brown of State Center and defending champion Mike Van Genderen in the race for the 2015 Hawkeye Dirt Tour title.

Billy Moyer Jr. Tops DIRTCar Summer Nationals at Farley

June 25th, 2015

Batesville, Arkansas – Billy Moyer Jr. scored the second win of 2015 in his Crop Production Services #21jr Longhorn/Pro Power Racing Engine Super Late Model with a triumph at Farley Speedway with the DIRTCar Summer Nationals.

Continuing on the 2015 Summernationals Hell Tour, Billy Moyer Jr. made the trip to Jacksonville Speedway (Jacksonville, Illinois) on Tuesday evening. With twenty-two cars on hand for the ILMO Propane Wildman Kelly Classic, Billy got off to a quick start by setting a new track record in qualifying. Starting in 2nd for the 40-lap A-Main, Moyer Jr. battled for the top spot until finding trouble with a lap car. Following the damage from the contact, Moyer Jr. persevered to finish 7th in the feature event.

On Wednesday night Billy Moyer Jr. visited Farley Speedway (Farley, Iowa) for another Hell Tour race, which was sanctioned by the DIRTCar Summer Nationals. With a strong field of 25 Super Late Models entered Billy followed his quick time in his qualifying group with a heat race win. In the finale, Moyer Jr. assumed the lead from the drop of the green flag and went on to lead all 50 laps to capture the $10,000 payday. He was followed across the finish line by Chris Simpson, Bobby Pierce, Shannon Babb and Chad Simpson. The victory marked his first Hell Tour victory of the 2015 season and his second triumph overall.

While Thursday and Friday night’s events at Spoon River Speedway (Canton, Illinois) and Tri City Speedway (Pontoon Beach, Illinois) fell victim to rain, the tour was able to resume action at Fairbury American Legion Speedway (Fairbury, Illinois). Moyer Jr. enjoyed a great run in the $10,000-to-win event, where he recorded a 3rd place finish behind race winner, Shannon Babb, and Ryan Unzicker.

“After some mechanical issues to start the Summer Nationals, it sure felt good to get the monkey off our back with the win,” said Moyer Jr. “Hopefully we can continue to enjoy success. I’m still not sure if we’ll stick with the whole tour, so right now we’ll continue to take it race by race.”

Billy is currently second in the series standings. For more results from this event and complete standings, please visit www.TheHellTour.com .

Callahan collects top Deery cash at Farley again

April 19th, 2015

FARLEY, Iowa- Something about Farley Speedway brings out the best in Joel Calla­han.

Callahan won his third straight Deery Brothers Summer Series feature at Farley on Friday night, earn­ing $3,000. He’d also topped IMCA Late Model tour events there each of the last two Septem­bers.

Jeff Aikey started outside Callahan on the front row and led the first 22 of 50 laps. The field was under yellow and ready to resume racing when Aikey pulled into infield with a flat tire.

That put Callahan on point and he stayed in front as the last 28 laps ran caution-free. Tyler Droste and defending series champion Justin Kay both avoided becoming part of the attri­tion and advanced 15 positions to second and third, respectively.

Point leader Andy Nezworski was a plus eight positions to fourth and hard charger
Tyler Bruening ad­vanced 17 spots to fifth. Matt Ryan started 17th and ended in
sixth.

Colby Springsteen was running in the top five when he brought out the first yellow of the night with a lap 17 flat. Curt Martin was in second when he broke on the 20th circuit.

Winner of the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing was Corey Zeitner.

The second $3,000 to win Deery event of the weekend is Saturday, April 18 at Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City.

Pit gates open at 4:30 p.m. and the grandstand opens at 5:30 p.m. Hot laps are at 6:30 p.m. with racing to follow.

Kelly Shryock took the $1,000 IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified checkers at Farley. He was already on the ballot for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.
