    speaking of Iowa,I may have the chance to go to Donnellson Thursday or Friday night. Which night would be better? Thursday they are running $1000 to win IMCA stock cars and modifeds. Hobby stocks also. Friday night they are running Late models,305 sprints,sport mods and 4 cylinders. Kind of hard to make up my mind. I would like to see the stock car shootout and modifieds but want to see the late models Friday night also. Yeah,I know,go both nights. Don’t think that will be possible lol. Any suggestions from people with experience on seeing these classes of cars run at this track would be appreciated. I haven’t Been to Donnellson in about 10 years,so my memory of how good the racing in different classes there is not very good.

    Friday for sure!!! Enjoy their canned beers! Their Hilarious announcers and there great racing… Just watch put for the kamakozie death bugs that want to get you!!!!

    Thursday will be some great racing with cars from 4-5 maybe 6 states. Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and maybe more. You will see some of the best Stock car and Modified drivers in the Nation. You can see the Late Models, Sprint cars, or Sportmods weekly. But you won’t be able to see a Stock car or Modified race like this for the rest of the year unless you go on a road trip. I’m guessing the Hobby stock feature alone on Thursday will be worth the price of admission.

    I’m guessing the Kamikaze death bugs mentioned about, are aka mormon flies.

    Burgtorf was leading the Deery brothers race at Independence tonight and the lapped car of Callahan wrecked him. Rob Toland wins. Guss gets a top 10. Bye bye Deery Brothers points championship for Burgtorf.

    Not sure if anybody is still following this topic since it is on the second page,but what is the best way to get to donnellson? the Missouri side up highway 61 or 96 up the IL side? would like to miss as many towns as possible. As far as Burgtorf getting taken out,it’s not over yet. The next deery race,the other leaders could get taken out or have mechanical issues.

  9. Whoops says:

    Take 61. going on 96 takes about 1.5 hours. But if you get caught by a barge add 15-20 minutes

    That’s right little buddy, you tell em the B mistro is down but not out. Missouri way takes only 50 minutes all hwy till Donnelson.
