Aikey Continues Hot Streak At Farley Speedway

Friday, August, 9th the Farley Speedway hosted True Value Back To School Night at the races featuring the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series presented by Dodge.

Jeff Aikey continued his hot streak in winning his 8th Iowa Illinois Taylor Insulation NASCAR Late Model feature. Aikey started in the sixth row but quickly worked to the front and was challenging race leader Steve Boley by lap number five. The two veteran Late Model drivers battled for several laps swapping the lead back and forth before Aikey was able to take the top spot for good, Aikey used several grooves of the smooth track on his way to the lead. Boley fell back to third but was able get back around Josh McGowan for second at the checkers. McGowan, always a top five finisher, took third ahead of Ace Ihm and Todd Davis.

Veteran Scott Nesteby used a lap 13 restart to shoot to the top side and overtake race leader Mike Burbridge on his way to the Quarter Master Modified feature win. The win was Nesteby’s second of the season at the Farley Speedway. The lead pack included Nesteby, Burbridge and Ron Barker for much of the race. The three drivers delighted the fans with plenty of wheel to wheel action. Nesteby took the win by less than a car length over Burbridge and Barker.

A first time winner took the checkers in the Pro Stock main event on Friday night. Texas Ranger John Walker led the flag to flag event the entire distance in making his first ever visit to the Farley Speedway victory lane. Bobby Moyer pressured the leader the entire way but Walker drove a perfect race in taking the hard fought win. Dan Shelliam came from deep in the pack to take third.

Big Ed McIntyre scored his first ever NASCAR Hobby Stock feature win at the Farley Speedway. McIntyre has been racing for 8 years at Farley making his first ever feature win a very special night. Randy Benn returned to racing after a couple of years off and drove to a second place finish on Friday night. T.J. Leslein took third in the main event.

Becky Roth drove her Toyota named “Delores” to the win on Friday night topping the Farley Flyer feature event. Roth took the win ahead of Travis Kaiser and Mark Jaeger.
