Jesse Stovall wins MLRA thriller at Lee County Speedway



MLRA PR
DONNELLSON, IA (June 12) - For the second time in as many visits, Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, Iowa, proved itself thrilling for the fans of the Lucas Oil MLRA. During the 40 lap main event Jesse Stovall, Jason Utter and Chad Simpson all took turns pacing the field. Stovall was strongest at the end pocketing the big check, his seventh overall with the series.

"It was a pretty wild race there,"commented Stovall in Andy's Frozen Custard Victory Lane. "I just had to slow down and pace myself. I kind of found me a line there at the end where I could get around them guys. Tonight we really had to work for this one, so I'm pretty proud of it."

For much of the early portion it appeared either Utter or Simpson were headed for victory. Stovall fell back to third while the other two sliced in and out of lapped traffic. Slowly, Stovall made strides back towards the front and completed the race winning pass on lap 35. Just one lap later Simpson slowed and pulled the infield with a broken ball joint. Stovall clicked off the final three laps uncontested and crossed the line with nearly an eight second cushion.

"I wanted one more," said second place finisher Jason Utter. "We got into a lapped car about three quarters of the way through the race. I don't know if it pulled a quarter panel out or what, but it just never felt the same. Obviously something was rubbing and it (tire) finally blew with a lap or two to go."

Utter's run is one more in a string of successes this season. The Lee County Speedway runner up is his best finish yet, and now gives him top five finishes in four of the last five events. California driver Jason Papich rounded out the top three in his second Lucas Oil MLRA appearance of the season.

Denny Eckrich and Ryan Gustin were fourth and fifth respectively. RC Whitwell was the Casey's General Stores Hard Charger and Sunoco Rookie of the Race with a 15 spot improvement and 9th place finish.

Saturday's action at Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Missouri has been postponed due to precipitation and saturation in the pit area. Officials are discussing options for future dates.
