Neal Rides High Side To Farley Speedway Victory Lane

The Farley Speedway hosted night number three of the 2002 NASCAR Weekly Racing Series presented by Dodge on Friday, May 3rd. The night produced four first time winners and one repeat winner in the young season.

Terry Neal took off from his outside front row starting position and rode the high side to the 25 lap Iowa Illinois Taylor Insulation NASCAR Late Model feature win. The race went flag to flag with Neal leading every lap. Bobby Hansen turned in his finest performance ever at the Farley Speedway in taking second. Hansen was able to catch Neal late in the race as lapped traffic came into play but Neal was able to break free from the lapped car before Hansen was able to complete the pass for the lead. Neal took the checkers ahead of Hansen with Duane Coulson and Dan Galant rounding out the top four.

Ron Barker had his early season winning streak in the Quarter Master Modifieds stopped at two by Jason Schuller. The two outstanding Modifed drivers put on quite a show for the fans with Barker trying every inch of the track to mount a serious challenge on the strong running Schuller. This night belonged to Schuller as he held his line perfectly in scoring the win by less than a car length over Barker. Scott Nesteby recovered from a flat tire and worked his way back to a third place finish ahead of Larry Herring.

Bobby Moyer was not only a first time winner in 2002 at the Farley Speedway but his Pro Stock win on Friday night was his first ever since moving up from the Hobby Stock Class a year ago. Moyer fought off the constant challenges of last week’s winner, Andy Eckrich in scoring the 15 lap feature win. Moyer drove a flawless race in taking the checkers first ahead of Eckrich, John Maher and Dan Shelliam.

The only repeat winner of the night came in the Hobby Stock division. Larry Benn scored the win on opening night and was able to hold off Chad Hallahan and T.J. Leslein in the main event to score his second win of the 2002 campaign.

Mark Jaeger snapped Jason Roth’s win streak in the Farley Flyer division at two by taking the 10 lap flag to flag event. Jaeger drove his 1994 Cavalier to the win ached of Cliff Schanbeck and Travis Kaiser.

Friday, May 10th the Farley Speedway will host a full program of NASCAR Weekly Racing Series action plus an extra Iowa Illinois Taylor Insulation feature. Twin 25’s for the Late Models will headline the program along with an entire race program in the other four divisions. Hot laps will get underway at 7 p.m. with racing to follow.
