Dubuque Speedway Season Championship Wins To Ihm, Barker, Moyer, Rauen & Kennedy; 2002 Point Titles Go To Webb, Schueller, Tharp, Dunkel & Leehan

The 2002 NASCAR Weekly Racing Series presented by Dodge came to a close on Sunday night with the running of Dottie’s Café Season Championships at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds Speedway.  

The 35 lap Iowa Illinois Taylor Insulation NASCAR Late Models 35 lap feature took to the speedway with Luke Merfeld and Steve Johnson shooting to the front by working the low groove on the smooth track. While the battle was being waged on the bottom Ace Ihm was making his way to the front using the high line of the track. Ihm was able to catch and move by the leaders around the 15 lap mark. Ihm led the remainder of the race as the fast groove shifted to the middle of the track. Luke Merfeld took the checkers in second ahead of Gary Webb. Webb used his third place finish to secure his fourth consecutive NASCAR Late Model track championship at the Dubuque Speedway.

 

The 20 lap Modified feature saw several drivers take their turn at leading. Early it was Bob Dominacki, and then Jason Schueller took over and led for several laps before Ron Barker was able to take the lead following a restart. Barker went on to win his 30th feature event of the 2002 season. Sean Rupp ran very strong all race long and finished second ahead of Jason Schueller. The third place finish for Schueller earned him the track point title.

 

Bobby Moyer found the low groove to his liking on Sunday night and out raced the field to the championship trophy in the Pro Stock division. Moyer took the lead from Skip Culbertson and went on to out race Ty Kleiner for the win. Jeff Tharp used a 4th place finish to garner the track point title.

 

Jason Rauen advanced from his third row start and took the win in the10 lap NASCAR Hobby Stock feature over Larry Benn and Ed McIntyre. Steve Dunkel ran sixth on Sunday night and his consistency all year long earned him the track championship.

 

Danny Kennedy drove his Toyota to the Dotties Café season championship win in the Farley Flyer division. Kennedy led the race flag to flag in taking the win ahead of Keith Kiernan and Jeff Jorgensen. Randy Leehan scored his first ever track championship by finishing in the sixth position.

 

Dubuque Speedway drivers will receive their awards at the SPI banquet to be held January, 18th, 2003 at the Palace Ballroom at the Farley Speedway.
