Higley holds off Strong for Industrial Material Surplus Iron Man Challenge checkers at LA Raceway

LA MONTE, Mo. — Mike Higley of Tecumseh, Kan., won for the third time in his last three starts Thursday as the Industrial Material Surplus Iron Man Challenge for USRA B-Mods invaded the LA Raceway in La Monte, Mo.

Higley, who won the last two Iron Man features at the I-35 Speedway dating back to last August, snared the lead from Jeremy Chambers following a restart on lap 2 and never gave up the lead the rest of the way as he picked up the $500 winner’s share of the prize money.

Shawn Strong gave Higley all he could handle during the last half of the race, but even a green-white-checkered finish was not enough to help him get by leader.

Chambers held on for the third spot while veteran Steve Muilenburg finished fourth despite starting 22nd on the grid. Thirteen-year-old Trevor Hunt rounded out the top 5 finishers.

The Industrial Material Surplus Iron Man Challenge heads north to the Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Fountain City, Wis., as the USRA B-Mods join the USMTS Modifieds for the track’s season opener next Friday, April 27.
