Perfect Deery Series attendance earns
drivers 'Iron Man' award from J&J Steel
WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (Feb. 11) - Perfection may not result in a championship, but all drivers who compete at each of the 14 Deery Brothers Summer Series events this season will be rewarded nonetheless.
The J&J Steel Race Shop in West Burlington will again award $300 product certificates to all I.M.C.A. Sunoco Late Model drivers who race at every event in the series for I.M.C.A. Sunoco Late Models.
Ten drivers cashed in on the contingency offer last season, including the top six in points: Champion Terry Schlipman, Tom Darbyshire, Brenton Slocum, Gary Russell, Jeremiah Hurst and rookie of the year Mike Karhoff.
Other "Iron Man" recipients were Darrel DeFrance, Ryan Griffith, Kelly Tapper and Jeff Maher. The ultimate ironman, DeFrance has yet to miss a Deery race and now has a streak of 238 consecutive events attended.
J&J will also give a $100 product certificate to drivers advancing the most posi-tions from start to finish of each feature race.
Drivers must display two J&J Steel decals to be eligible for either award. Those decals can be obtained during the pre-race tech inspection at all series events.
The West Burlington, Iowa, company sells new and used chassis and race car parts and ac-cessories. More informa-tion about those products is available by calling (319) 754-4310.
"We had more drivers with perfect attendance last season at Deery races than we have had in many years," I.M.C.A. Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. "With the help of J&J Steel, we will continue to reward drivers that support the promoters who run those races, making the Deery Brothers Summer Series the best showcase of Late Model talent in the Midwest."
