After assessing the situation that unfolded, Hawkeye Downs Speedway officials reviewed the last completed lap before the incident and has also rewarded Dallas Chandler credit with the feature win.

Results- August 18, 2017

(August 18th, 2017 by Caleb Slouha) A beautiful night capped off a wonderful season of racing as Friday night brought the season championship races, and fans were invited to party on the track after. There was a large turnout and the fans saw a great show.

The night started out with a “Hornets Carpetland ‘Floor-It’ Dash”. This race brought six hornets on track and it was Ethan Parrott who scored the victory.

Anderson Automotive Hobby Stocks driver Jeremy Floyd held off the always fast, Jim Hanson, to earn the first feature win of his career. Victory Lane was full of emotions as Floyd has been close a few times this year. Hanson later celebrated in the winner’s circle as the champion.

Next up was the Dublin City Pub Inex Legends Series. Fans witnessed the familiar sight of Minnesota’s Brady Rhode leading, but Sammy Smith stayed on the bumper and tried to pressure Rhode to give him room with no success. Meanwhile, Austin Slabaugh’s consistency paid off, winning him the championship in just his third year of racing.

There was plenty of contact to be made in the Miller Time Hornets Series. With a tight championship battle, and the final night for some drivers to get a victory, the field raced hard. Dallas Chandler found the front and was about to bring home the trophy when he was wrecked by lapped traffic on the final lap. After officials reviewed the incident, Chandler was given credit for the win and the championship. It was Troy Scott that went to victory lane for the feature win.

Cory Houdek spent much of his night, like his season, in victory lane. With 10 laps to go in the Mountain Dew Sportsmen Series, Houdek took the lead and keep it until the end. With a dominating performance this season, Houdek also won the season championship for the series.

Last on the night was the Performance Concepts Late Model Series. Griffin McGrath shot out of a cannon at the start of the feature and attempted to flee the field. Brody Willett on his return to the track partially ran him down but could not arrive any closer than a couple car lengths. McGrath would win his fourth feature of the year, Brian Gibson won the season championship once again.

(August 11th, 2017 by Caleb Slouha) Yet another wild night of racing brought the championship battles even closer on Friday night, as we head into the final night of racing next week.Hawkeye Downs Speedway

The AIRS Vintage Cars were brought back for one final time this season due to demand from the fans. Hawkeye Downs “Wall of Fame” driver Johnny Spaw led the opening laps of the race, but Craig Stepanek chased him down. With 3 laps to go, the two caught lapped traffic and Stepanek went on the win his second feature of the year here at the Downs.

Tom Blum led the field to the green of the Miller Time Hornets feature and jumped ahead until Troy Scott took charge with 12 to go. Scott would command the field for the next 5 laps until the familiar “01” of Derek Parrott took the lead, but Dallas Chandler was right behind and took the lead 2 laps later. Chandler led the white flag lap, but lapped traffic stunted his run in turn 3, and Parrott went to victory lane.

There were no surprises in the Anderson Automotive Hobby Stocks, as Jim Hanson went to victory lane once again. Jeremy Floyd led much of the race, and looked like he may be able to run away with it until a caution with 9 to go bunched up the field. Floyd would get passed by Hanson and “Bubba” Hall by the checkered flag, but Hall would later get disqualified in post-race tech inspection.

The battle remains tight between Austin Slabaugh and Dave McCalla in the Dublin City Pub Inex Legends, and almost saw a huge shift last night. With 18 to go, Slabaugh, Cole O’Brien, and Todd Ness made contact in turn 2. This resulted in Slabaugh having a flat tire and needing to go to the pits, and it was McCalla’s crew who stepped in to change his tire. Slabaugh would go on to finish 6th, and only lose 1 point to McCalla. Brady Rhode took the lead of the race with 8 to go to win his 6th feature of the year.

One of the craziest races of the year took place in the Mountain Dew Sportsmen. A restart with 8 to go meant it was “go time” for the drivers, and CJ VanHorn put the bumper to the leader Cory Houdek, which resulted in him spinning in front of the entire field. Almost every car made contact with another, but were able to continue. Drew Nickell received the most damage. Houdek would go on to hold off VanHorn, but failed tech after the race and giving credit for the win to VanHorn.

Making all the passes on the outside for the second week in a row, Griffin McGrath was hooked up to win his third feature of the year. It was no contest as he pulled away from Brian Gibson and Chad Walen. Gibson and Brad Osborn remain close in points heading into the final race.

Results- August 4, 2017

(August 4th, 2017- By Caleb Slouha) The fans who attended Friday night’s races spectated some of the best racing of the year, and we anticipate the final few weeks will do the same.

Hawkeye Downs Speedway

Friday night hosted the final Carpetland USA “Floor-It” Dash of the year. Just a three-lap dash with only three cars became an exciting finish. John Ferden took the lead from the start, but Sydney Henderson charged to the outside. With one lap to go, Henderson used momentum to get right alongside Ferden. It looked to be a photo finish, but Ferden wiggled and Henderson won her first race.

The championship battle in the Miller Time Hornets Series continues to be tight between Derek Parrott and Dallas Chandler. Rookie Stewart Hall took the early lead, but four laps in Chandler overtook him. As they battled close all over the track it led to Curt Gibbs going off-track with three to go which ended his night. Chandler would have a fantastic restart following and pull into victory lane for the fourth time this year.

Braxton Franks and Bryan Baxter led the field to green in the Anderson Automotive Hobby Stocks. For the opening 5 laps, the leaders battled side-by-side, making contact several times while third through eighth place queued behind them. It was essentially an 8-car battle for the lead and with 12 to go “Bubba” Hall took over first. He would lead for 6 laps until Jim Hanson lightly used the bumper to take the lead. It was a close battle as Kurt Bohnsack joined in, and the three DS Disposal cars went bumper-to-bumper. Hanson would earn win number seven. Van Meter

After starting on the front row, Kevin Korsmo controlled the field right from the start of the Dublin City Pub Inex Legends race. He held off drivers Brady Rhode and Dave McCalla, who have multiple feature wins this year, to win his first feature of the year. Rhode started near the back, and carefully worked his way through traffic to finish second, but did not have enough time to catch Korsmo.

A competitive Mountain Dew Sportsmen race at one point led to the leaders going four-wide into turn 1. CJ VanHorn and Brandon Herb then made contact in turn 3, resulting in Cory Houdek becoming involved. The damage would be too much for Houdek and Herb to continue for the night. Greg Hentrich came out of the battle with the lead, and held off Drew Nickell for his second win of the year.

Griffin McGrath started the feature in 5th, and made a rare 3-wide pass from the complete outside lane to take the third place. With 14 laps to go, he made the pass for second on the outside as well. When he got to the leader Brad Osborn, McGrath once again took to the outside to complete the pass and lead the remaining seven laps for his second win of the year.

Racing continues Friday, August 11th with DS Disposal Night. Gates open at 6:00 pm, racing begins at 7:30 pm.
