Results- July 28th- Croell Redi-Mix Night

(July 28, 2017– By Brad Grupe)

Hawkeye Downs SpeedwayRacing in the Hy-Vee Racing Series returned to Hawkeye Downs Speedway Friday Night, July 28 after a one-week hiatus thanks to extreme temperatures and weather. Croell Redi-Mix presented the evenings’ action with all classes battling for valuable points with just a handful of races left in the 2017 season.

Dallas Chandler earned his third win of the season in Miller Time Hornets after taking the point on lap five and pulling away from the field. His lead was erased with three laps remaining when Tom Blum spun, putting point leader Derek Parrot on Chandler’s bumper. Chandler was able to hold off Parrott on the restart, collecting the checkers. Troy Scott finished in third behind Parrott.

There was no shortage of caution flags in the 20-lap Anderson Automotive Hobby Stocks feature. The race saw a trio of different leaders with eventual winner and point leader Jim Hanson collecting his sixth win of the season. Hanson took command on lap thirteen and had a comfortable lead when the caution waved just as the field was taking the white flag.

The cars of Jeremy Floyd and Kurt Bohnsack were fighting for the same real estate in turns one and two and through the backstretch with Bohnsack forced into the grass. As Bohnsack re-established position on the asphalt the car launched sideways and ended up flipping into the air and rolling into the grass outside turn three. The race was red-flagged briefly while an oil fire was extinguished in Bohnsack’s car.  Since less than half the field had taken the white flag, the race reverted to a green-white-checkered finish.  Hanson motored to the win when green flag racing resumed and was followed across the stripe by Jason Sherman and Jasen Freeman.

The final results were revised in the tech barn when the car of Sherman didn’t pass inspection, elevating Freeman to second and Matt Lacoursiere to third.

Brady Rhode ended up celebrating his birthday in Victory Circle after a green-to-checkers run in the Dublin City Pub INEX Legends feature, but it didn’t come easy.  Cole O’Brien built a huge early lead but by the halfway mark Rhode had started to put a dent into the lead and as they encountered lapped traffic O’Brien was held up a bit allowing Rhode to draw even closer. With seven laps to go Rhode was within four car lengths with Kevin Korsmo right behind. Rhode made the winning move on O’Brien with a backstretch pass with just four laps to go. O’Brien maintained second with Korsmo finishing third.

The Mountain Dew Sportsmen Feature saw John Johnston take advantage of starting on the pole as he outlasted the field to pick up his first feature win in the division. He was challenged early by Brandon Herb and Greg Hentrich and in the closing laps point leader Cory Houdek was closing fast but Johnston outran him to the checkered flag. Hentrich finished in third behind Houdek.

A somewhat slim field of Performance Concepts Late Models put on a heck of a show for nearly 20 laps as Brad Osborn and Brian Gibson battled for the lead multiple times. Osborn appeared to have more power on the straights with Gibson catching him in the corners.  The action was slowed at lap twelve for a spin but once the green waved the battle was on again. With just three laps remaining Osborn spun putting Gibson on point.

One lap after the race restarted the rear end of Mark Ironside’s car appeared to let go putting fluid on the track. Officials elected to throw the checkered flag with the caution due to extensive clean-up that would be required and since the outcome of the race was no longer in doubt. Mark Greb finished second behind Gibson and Scott Siems was third.

Racing continues next Friday night with “Van Meter Night at the Races- Racing to Make a

Difference.”  Admission is Free with a monetary donation. Proceeds benefit Adaptive Sports Iowa- An organization that provides support for athletes with physical disabilities throughout Iowa. Gates open at 6:00 pm.

July 14th Results- Casey’s General Store Night

(July 14th, 2017– By Caleb Slouha) After a week off, racing resumed at Hawkeye Downs for the Hy-Vee Racing Series which included the AIRS Vintage Cars for the second time this year.

Hawkeye Downs Speedway

Robin Atkins got a strong start to the AIRS race, but once Bart Miller made the pass to second just three laps in, he quickly caught up to the leader. With two to go, Miller took the lead, but Bobby Bryant came to a stop in turn 4 bringing out the caution. On the restart Atkins stays right in Miller’s tracks, but could not make the pass and Miller won the feature.

Drew Nickell, racing in the 2M car usually raced by Dallas Chandler, won the Miller Time Hornets feature after taking the lead from Elliott Vogel on lap 4. There would be one restart after Cody Strasser spun and Curt Gibbs was left with nowhere to go. The two made contact, ending Gibbs’ night.

In the Anderson Automotive Hobbystocks, Bryan Baxter grabbed the lead after the start and held on until Jim Hanson took the lead with 9 laps to go. Baxter would then fall back to finish 6th while Gerald Hall and Braxton Franks attempted to catch Hanson, but could not do so.

It was a frustrating night for Cole O’Brien and Sammy Smith, as they seemed to find each other the whole feature. O’Brien led in the early stages of the race with Smith on the bumper, and the top four all in contention for the lead. Dave McCalla was able to charge from fourth to first in one lap and took the lead in the Dublin City Pub Inex Legends. As O’Brien and Smith continued to battle, McCalla was able to run away with his second win of the year.

While it looked like CJ VanHorn may have had something for Cory Houdek in the Mountain Dew Sportsmen, ultimately it was Houdek who drove to victory lane once again. It was a close call for Houdek who made slight contact with Mike Mitchell when Mitchell and Ballsteadt went for a spin. Everyone could continue, Greg Hentrich was unable to finish due to an engine problem.

For the first time this season, Griffin McGrath pulled into victory lane in the Performance Concepts Late Models. McGrath made the pass on Brad Osborn on the outside, and set sail while Osborn and Gibson battled for second. Gibson won that battle and several laps later Dudley Fleck took over the third position.

Next week is KGAN/FOX 28 night at Hawkeye Downs. Gates open at 6 pm, racing begins at 7:30 pm. Join the Lil’ Racer Car Club for “Frozen Night”
