    East Moline, IL (September 2nd, 2012) ”“ It was an historic night at the Quad City Speedway Sunday. Emily Gade, from Clarence, Iowa, had the typical highs and lows of a racing season but on Season Championship night she celebrated the highest of highs becoming the first female track champion in Quad City Speedway history.

    With it being Season Championship night for four of the five classes racing the top ten in points were lined up by points assuming they raced their heat race.

    Going into the Extreme Auto Glass Street Stock feature Gade held a slim lead over Chuck Fox and Rick Schriner which put Gade on the pole position for the feature. She didn’t need to win the feature to win the track championship but that didn’t stop “Lil’ Miss Dangerous”. Gade rocketed out to the lead and never looked back. Gade led every lap in the caution free 15 lap feature taking the checkered flag to a standing ovation from the Quad City Speedway crowed. Fox would finish the race second followed by Chris Lawrence, Rick Schriner, and Rob Henry.

    The night’s program was kicked off with one of two make-up features. The Mod Lites were first up with their 12 lap make-up feature. Rock Island’s Bryan Brinker dominated the event picking up the feature win. Anthony Guss crossed the lined second followed by Brad Lucy, Shon Sanders, and David Norton.

    The second make-up feature was in the Aaron’s Affordable Towing 4-Cylidners. The original front row wasn’t able to make the call so that bumped up Aaron Hitt and Wade Dahl to the front row. Hitt would take full advantage of his pole position starting spot and win in convincing fashion. You could throw a blanket over the battle for second with Cameron Poci edging out Josh Sharpe and Wade Dahl.

    It was another tight points battle in the Orion Tire Repair IMCA Modifieds. Greg Durbin held onto a small points lead over Doug Crampton, which put the two drivers in the front row for the feature. Crampton would lead every lap en route to the victory with Durbin taking second followed by Jason Masengarb, Brian Bushong, and Terry Rentfro. Greg Durbin was crowned the 2012 Orion Tire Repair IMCA Modified Track Champion.

    In the second feature of the evening for the Mod Lites, Bryan Brinker left off right where he finished the first feature. Brinker used the first five laps to get pass early race leader Shon Sanders. After that Brinker would lead the rest of the way in the caution free feature making it two for two on the night. Sanders would take second followed by Mike Pershing, Brad Lucy, and Dan Guss. Shon Sanders was crowned the 2012 Mod Lite Track Champion.

    In the Aaron’s Affordable Towing 4-Cylinder’s second feature Zach Dahl held off a strong effort from Aaron Hitt to take home the win and the 2012 Aaron’s Affordable Towing 4-Cylinger Track Championship. Wade Dahl took third followed by Cameron Poci and Josh Sharpe.

    The final event of the evening was the 30 lap Sexton Ford IMCA Late Model feature. It took Mike Zemo Jr. the first 12 laps to navigate his “Z” machine to the front using the bottom side but after that Zemo went untouched. The battle for second was one of the more exciting battles of the night. Legend, Gary Webb, held off strong runs by early race leader, Mike Guldenpfennig, and Shawn Mulvany to take second. Guldenpfennig would finish third with Mike Garland fourth and Todd Malmstrom fifth.
