Marion Resident Races Into Destruction

Marion's own Tom Lenz was putting together a great night at the Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, IA last night until a huge crash at the beginning of the A Main did major damage to his car. 8 cars were involved in the crash that started on the front stretch going into turn one as Rod Richards slowed as he took the green flag. All drivers emerged uninjured. The cars were not as lucky.
