Red-hot Aikey earns $2,000 at Maquoketa
Jeff Aikey won his 69th career Deery Brothers Summer Series race.
What won the race: Regaining the lead from fifth-starting Joel Callahan of Dubuque, Iowa, on lap 45, third-starting Jeff Aikey of Waterloo, Iowa, led the remaining distance to score a $2,000 IMCA Deery Brothers Summer Series victory at Maquoketa Speedway.
Quotable: "I could go anywhere on this track,” Aikey said. “The track was prepared great. ... We were having a good run and it was tiring with no cautions. When Joel (Callahan) showed his nose I knew I had to go.”

The race was slowed by a lone caution on lap 46. … Polesitter Andy Eckrich led the first three laps before falling to Aikey. .. The series made the first of two scheduled stops at Maquoketa, slated to return on Aug. 10.
On the move: Justin Kay of Wheatland, Iowa, started 23rd and finished sixth.
