ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa—The Holley Iron Man Series invaded the Rapid Speedway Tuesday night during the Lyon County Fair with one new first-time winner and a frequent visitor to victory lane.

In the USRA B-Mod main event, Nick Barger of Madison, S.D., withstood a barrage of would-be winners throughout the first half of the race before taking command for good with eight laps to go and driving to his career-first Holley Iron Man Series win.

After leading the first lap from the pole, Barger swapped the top spot with Cody Ahrendt four times during the first seven laps, and then it was Dakota Foster taking over for three laps before Barger could wrestle the lead back for good.

The win was worth $600 to Barger while Thor Anderson slipped past Foster on the white flag lap to score the runner-up paycheck.

After Foster was disqualified during post-race technical inspections, Kevin Joachim moved up to the third-place finishing position with Cullen DeRuyter fourth and Cole Denner fifth.

In USRA Stock Car action, Ocheyedan, Iowa’s Elijah Zevenbergen remained perfect in Holley Iron Man Series competition as he racked up his third win in three tries.

Polesitter Justin Regnerus put up a good fight, but could not keep Zevenbergen from completing the ‘hat trick’ and pocketing another $750 winner’s share of the purse.

Tom Schmitt finished third, Rich Gregoire was fourth and Chad Overgaard rounded out the top five at the checkered flag.

Practice will kick off at the Deer Creek Speedway on Wednesday with USRA Stock Cars and Wissota Midwest Mods sharing the spotlight with the USMTS Modifieds on Thursday, Friday and Saturday as part of the 5th Annual World Modified Dirt Track Championship.

While all three nights will award national points for the USRA Stock Cars, Saturday’s show is also a Holley Iron Man Series event for the fast and furious full-fendered freaks.
