McGowan Scores NASCAR Late Model Win At Farley Speedway

The Farley Speedway hosted the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series presented by Dodge on Friday, August 16th. The night was sponsored by Wilwerts Harley Davidson and included the “Ride your Harley to Farley” promotion. Approximately 75 Harley riders took part in the special parade lap.

24 NASCAR Iowa Illinois Taylor Insulation Late Models took to the track for their 25 lap feature on Friday night. When the checkers flew it was the number 3 of Josh McGowan taking his first feature win of the season. In 17 feature events McGowan has finished out of the top five only twice. McGowan started in the tenth position and chased down early leader Ace Ihm, and took over the top spot on lap ten. McGowan went on to record the impressive win over Denny Eckrich and Jeff Aikey. McGowan strengthened his hold on second in the point standings and the win will help his CPI in the Midwest region as the Farley Speedway track representative.

The Quarter Master Modifieds put on another outstanding race on Friday night with the two Dubuque veteran racers Scott Nesteby and Ron Barker providing the thrills of 20 laps of side by side racing. Nesteby scored his second consecutive feature win on Friday night taking the win over Barker by ˝ a car length. Nesteby was forced to drive a perfect race, one minor mistake and Barker would have claimed the win. Larry Herring took third ahead of Jason Schueller.

Two weeks ago Ty Kleiner’s night ended with 30 feet of guard rail wrapped around his Pro Stock. On Friday night the night came to a close for Kleiner with his fifth feature win of the 2002 season at the Farley Speedway. Kleiner used the bottom of the smooth track to get to the front and then went top side to race away for the win. Jeff Tharp turned in another strong performance in taking second over Bobby Moyer.

Steve Dunkel found the high line to his liking and scored his second NASCAR Hobby Stock feature win of the season. Dunkel was challenged late in the race for the win by Jason Rauen. The two came to the checkers door to door in turn four, Dunkel had the outside line and crossed the checkers about six feet ahead of Rauen.

Becky Roth drover her Toyota nicknamed “Delores” to her second consecutive Farley Flyer feature win. Becky outraced her younger brother Jason in scoring the 10 lap feature win.

A special thank you goes out to Wilwerts Harley Davidson, who provided all feature winners with a $100 bonus for their efforts.

Racing will continue on Friday, August 23 with hot laps taking to the track at 7 p.m.
