1976 – Stover rallies for Tunis win

Waterloo, Iowa (August 1, 1976) - Stan Stover of Reinbeck came from the seventh starting position and led the final 11 laps to capture the late model feature at the weekly running of stock cars at Tunis Speedway on Sunday night.
After four laps Red Dralle of Evansdale took the feature lead and held that position until the 14th lap when Stover took over and stayed in that position to win from a field of 22 entries in the feature.

Bill Zwanziger of Waterloo was second, Curt Hanson of Dike was third and Karl Sanger of Waterloo was fourth.

Season point leader Ed Sanger of Waterloo started the feature race in the last row and worked his way up to eighth in a backup car.

Sanger's regular car had some mechanical problems in one of the heat races and was out of action for the night.

Gale Card of Waterloo, Dave Trower of New Hampton and Dick Schiltz of Waterloo were the late model heat winners while Dave Plum of Waterloo and Dralle won the two semifinals. The consolation went to Em Fretheim of Decorah.
