Rich Green, Webster City, won his second super late model feature of the year to finish the night's action, with Roger Tapper, also of Webster City, taking the sportsman class feature, his first win in that event this year.
In the special show of the night, Ron Perkins,
, won the feature for the super
modified cars. Des Moines
, was the busiest man of the night,
having both his super modified and super late model cars at the track for competition. Ames
He set the fast time for the super modifieds and ran third in the heat race for that class. Mechanical problems kept his from competing in the super modified feature. In the super late model competition, he won the first race he has run on the Boone oval this year - the trophy dash, was second in his heat and third in the feature.
The two top cars in super late model point standings at the Boone Speedway had considerable trouble after the opening events.
Denny Hovinga, the point leader from Laurens, had the fast time for the night, with Gene Schattschneider, Algona, third in the time trials. Schattschneider is second in season points.
In the trophy dash, Hovinga ran fourth and Schattschneider was second, but from that point it was all downhill for the two drivers. Both ran the third heat, but neither one finished the event. Schattschneider hooked up with Del Stokke,
, and went over the
bank in number three turn, with both cars coming to rest upright at the bottom.
Hovinga pulled out on the last lap with mechanical problems. Ames
Schattschneider came out for the B-Main, but ran into trouble on the first lap and ended up with a flat tire. Hovinga also was in the B-Main, but spun out with just over a lap to go and finished sixth. Axle trouble kept him from even coming out for the feature. Schattschneider started the feature, but stayed far back in the pack throughout the race.
Under the heavy beating from the cars, the track turned into a dirty dry slick.
In the first heat, Roger Warden,
, received a broken
bone in his elbow after his car was sandwiched between Lynn Ballard, Marshall
town , and Gail Hoist, Ames . The right side
of Warden's car was driven over against the driver's seat as the three cars
smashed into the bank on the back straight. Fort Dodge
Earl Tice, Ames, held the lead for a while in the second super late model heat, fighting off challenges from Mike Chapman, Whiting, but then was sent to the back of the field after he, Wes Smith, Story City, Arnie Braland, Boone, and Arlo Dorenbush, Boone were in a mix-up.
Chapman was behind the wheel of #66, driven until last week by Braland. The car is owned by Sam Post, Boone. Braland was behind the wheel of #65, owned by Ron Efkamp, Boone, the same car he drove in the State Fair races Thursday afternoon.
After the restart caused by the four-car tangle, Bob Lewerke slipped under Chapman when the Whiting driver went high in the number two turn and went on for the win. His brother, Jerry, had won the first heat and the third heat was won by Green.
, took over the lead in the B-Main when
Tice dropped out with a shower of sparks under his car. McDowall held on to
take the win. Ames
In the sportsman competition, Glenn Woodard,
, won his first regular trophy dash of the
season. The only other trophy he has picked up at Boone this season was during
the Grand National competition. He ran third in his heat, being beaten by his
brother, Leonard, for second spot. That heat was won by John Swallow, Adel, who
has been behind the wheel of the car driven earlier by Doug White, Redfield. Allen
took the other sportsman heat. Madrid
had some of the worst luck in the Sportsman feature. Three times a car spun out
in front of him and he hit it. None of the accidents were bad enough to knock him
out of the race, but it dropped him back in position each time. Ames
