CRESCO, IA (June 27, 1999) - The Mighty Howard County Fair, along with Budweiser and Kabrick Distributing, welcomed drivers and fans to the Cresco Speedway in Cresco, Ia., Sunday night.

Three-wide racing was the name of the game in the stock car feature race. Tom Schmitt of Independence lead the charge, picking up the win, followed by Ron Konkel, Don Rude, Marinus Mlady and Kevin Bidne.

Rick Stockman took over the lead at the halfway point in the hobby stock feature race and held off hard-charging Jason Rhode to pick up his first feature win of the year. Jeff Vsetecka, Jason Schlangen and Mel Tieskotter finished third through fifth.

It was Mid-Season Championship night for the IMCA late models. Curt Martin of Independence took advantage of being the point leader and front row starting spot to take home the checkered flag. Kevin Kirkpatrick, Chris Adams, Darin Burco and Greg Kastli finished out the top five.

In a exciting modified feature race, it looked as though Dan Bohr had picked up his fifth straight feature win, passing Larry Grube on the last lap following a yellow flag. After further review, Grube was awarded the win after it was ruled it should have been a yellow-checkered, with Bohr taking second. We regret any confusion that this may have caused. This was Grube's first feature win in the modified class. Doug Hillson, Kyle Chiglo and Chuck Stanton rounded out the top five.

Join us next week as KCZQ Radio of Cresco sponsors the Mid-Season Championships for modifleds, stock cars and hobby stocks. The late models will also be running. See you there!
