Reed Grabs First UMP Super Late Model Win at Quincy
By Jack Walbring 

QUINCY, IL (April 1, 2012) - Justin Reed, Steven DeLonjay, Abe Huls, Tony Dunker, Jake Griffin and Chuck Fullenkamp all took feature event wins at Quincy Raceways on the opening night of the 2012 race season on April 1.

 Brandon Sheppard looked to be a shoe-in winner in the first UMP Super Late Model main event for the 2012 season but 2011 Quincy Raceways IMCA Late Model Track Champion Justin Reed had other ideas. Sheppard took the win in the Summy Tire and Auto Center Dash to start the main event on the pole with Michael Long on his outside. Sheppard took the early lead with Long in tow but by lap six, Reed worked his way into the second position. Reed then slowly crept up on Sheppard and on lap fourteen managed to take over the top spot as Sheppard began to fade. Reed then pulled out to a several car length lead as Mark Burgtorf worked his way up to challenge Sheppard and on the nineteenth circuit took over the second spot but Sheppard was not giving in easily as he rallied to take back second on the twenty nineth lap. Reed scored the win with Sheppard in second, Burgtorf in third, Matt Bailey in fourth and Michael Long in fifth. The heat race winners were Schott Schmitt, Burgtorf and Jim Moon.

 Steven DeLonjay made a big statement as he took the win in the Miller Lite UMP Modified main event.  Michael Long jumped into the lead of the twenty five lap main event from his pole starting spot and held off Troy Grotz for the first twelve laps until a multi car accident took Grotz out of contention. DeLonjay had started the feature event in the sixth row and had steadily worked his way through the field and restarted in the second spot after the lap thirteen caution. DeLonjay kept up the pressure on Long and on the twenty second lap he managed to slip past Long to take over the top position. DeLonjay then pulled away for the win followed by Long in second, Robbie Reed in third, Donovan Lodge in fourth and James Leffew in fifth. Jared Schlipman, Reed and Long were the heat race winners.

 Abe Huls grabbed the lead of the IMCA Stock Car feature event on the sixth lap and held off a pesky Terry Houston to take the first  IMCA Stock Car feature win of the season. Houston settled for second followed by Jerry Jansen in third, Jeff Mueller in fourth and Ty Hill in fifth. Aaron Brocksieck and Huls were the heat race winners.

 Tony Dunker took the win in the Summy Tire and Auto Center IMCA Northern SportMod main event but Dunker had to hold off a very determined field to take the win. Dean Kratzer put the pressure on Dunker for most of the main event before slipping back on the last lap to third as young Tanner Klingele took over the second spot as the checkered flag fell. The fourth spot went to Bobby Anders followed by Joe Bliven in fifth. Jim Gillenwater and Klingele were the heat race winners.

 Jake Powers held off Jeremy Buss to take the win in the Hobby Stock feature event. Powers took the lead on the third lap and held Buss at bay for the remainder of the twenty laps followed by Travis Booher in third, Nathan Hayes in fourth and Jamie Bevill in fifth. Jim Powell and Tanner Klingele were the heat race winners.

 The IMCA Sport Compacts may have gotten a new name and sanction for 2012 but the action was just about a crazy as the 2011 “Wild Things” division were in the past. Chuck Fullenkamp took the feature win over Seith Woodruff in second, Andrew Davis in third, Brandon Lambert in fourth and Kimberly Abbott in fifth. Craig Bangert and Woodruff were the heat race winners.
