1974 – West Liberty victory for Weedon


West Liberty, Iowa (May 4, 1974) – Things were different this week as it was Ron Weedon holding off the challenge of Darrell Dake to take the checkered flag at the super stock races here Saturday night.

A week ago, Dake of Cedar Rapids held off Weedon of Pleasant Valley for the victory, but this time it was Weedon who started in the fourth row. The winner wormed his way through the pack to get the lead on lap 7 and maintain it in a neck and neck battle the rest of the way.

Heat winners were Larry Jenkins of Wilton, Tom Hearst of Wilton and Ray Guss of Milan. Ken Walton of Cedar Rapids took the Australian pursuit and John Connolly of Delhi won the semi-main. The fastest time of the night was by Weedon with a 25.11.
