Mark Burgtorf finished fourth Monday night in the Deery Brothers Summer Series tour stop in Boone, Iowa.
Neal started outside front row and led the first 16 laps. Guss had taken the green from outside row two and was on Neal’s back bumper for most of the early going before slipping inside for the lead. The front pair caught up to the back of the field shortly after midway and changed lines adroitly to work their way through. Burgtorf raced his way up to second before Neal and Callahan passed him back with two laps left.
The win was the 18th of Guss’ Deery career, tying him with Neal and Rob Toland for fifth on the all-time tour victory list.
