FARLEY, Iowa (Sept. 13) – Jason Schueller led most of the way and pulled ahead late in winning Friday’s Karl Performance Hawkeye Dirt Tour presented by XSAN feature at Farley Speedway. The $1,500 IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified series victory came during the Yankee Dirt Track Classic and put Schueller on the ballot for the 2014 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. Mark Elliott qualified from his “B” feature and advanced 15 spots to second while new series point leader Mike Van Genderen was third. Mark Schulte and Jerry Luloff rounded out the top five. Schulte drew the outside front row start and led the first two circuits. The third starting Schueller was alongside and ahead by the width of his bumper when the next lap was scored, then began to pull away before a lap seven caution tightened the field back up. Elliott was up to fourth by lap 10 and got by Schulte for second on lap 15. A series of yellow flags interrupted the race after midway before Van Genderen set his sights on second.Elliott held off that challenge but neither driver was able to make any progress in reeling in Schueller before the end of the 30-lapper. Van Genderen, however, took over the top spot in the standings when Ronn Lauritzen was relegated to 21st place.The championship of the fourth annual series will be decided in the tour finale Saturday evening, Sept. 14 at Farley. That event pays $2,000 to win. Schueller’s victory was his Hawkeye Dirt Tour first. Forty-four Modifieds were entered at Farley for the 10th series event of the season.Feature results – 1.

Another race will be held in her honor Oct. 3 to raise funds for the school.PHOTO COURTESY OF PENOBSCOT COMMUNITY SCHOOLPENOBSCOT — Two road races Oct. 3 will celebrate Christine Kilpeck, the woman who held down the office at Penobscot Community School for over a decade.Kilpeck died in the summer of 2014 after a long battle with cancer. For the third year in a row, both a 1-mile “fun run” for children and a 5-kilometer road race will raise funds for a series of projects the longtime secretary determined would benefit the school.The race and project list have been dubbed the “Chris K 5K” and “Chris’s Wish List.” Participants also are welcome to walk.“She was very loved and very well liked and really, we were all very upset when she told us it was terminal,” said Judy Brenton, a parent and organizer of the fundraiser, when interviewed about the race last year. “She was instrumental in just really having a positive attitude, just being an advocate really for parents and students.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textIn 2012, the Maine Principals Association named Kilpeck, a Massachusetts native, Maine School Secretary of the Year.To date, the Chris K races have raised $12,000. Those funds have allowed students to participate in camps and workshops around the state — opportunities that wouldn’t otherwise be funded by the school budget. Other projects proposed by Kilpeck include replacing the bark mulch in the school playground with a safer rubber alternative and building separate bathrooms for several classrooms.Registration for this year’s races will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, at Penobscot Community School. Both races start at the town historical society and will be followed by an awards ceremony at the school gym and a chicken barbecue at the town fire department.The registration fee is $20 per person.
