On August 10, 2020, storms ripped through the majority of Iowa, causing damage to a large portion of the area. Hawkeye Downs, like most others around us, received heavy damage.

Nearly all of our overhead track lights were snapped, billboards and fencing destroyed, buildings damaged, and more.

This fundraiser has been put together to help recovery projects for things not covered by insurance.

As a non-profit organization, these contributions are vital and much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

RECAP: Malouf, Vandermeir Jr, Sherman Snag Wins

It was a night with jam-packed night with racing action with the Mid-American Stock Car Series and Midwest Dash Series, on top of Legends, Hobby Stocks, and Sport Mods.

Gary Stark set fast time in qualifying for the Midwest Dash Series, but it was Phil Malouf from Wisconsin who bested the field by 10 seconds. The 21-car field was split into two features, with Perry Anderson taking home the B-Feature.

In the Mid-American Stock Car Series, Ron Vandermier Jr swept qualifying and the feature with a strong performance. Vandermier Jr won over Brian Gibson by 6.7 seconds at the end of 30 laps on the 1/2 mile track.

For the second week in a row, Joey Gase showed up and this time won from the rear of the field in the Sport Mod Series. Patrick Flannagan came home second after issues last week left him with damage. Flannagan now leads Mike McDonald in the standings by 5 points.

Austin Jahr, who set the track record earlier this year, won the Legends Series. Aaron Moyer was relegated to third behind McCalla. With sight set on the championship, Moyer leads Danny Lehmkuhl by 17 points with three points races remaining.

Despite all of the action on the track, one of the crowd favorites of the night was the Hobby Stock race. Scott Siems led the majority of the race, with Jason Sherman, Matt LaCoursiere, and Jim Hanson right behind. With just under 5 to go, those drivers became antsy and rushed the leader. Sherman was able to get under Siems and held off Hanson at the line to snatch the checkered flag.

This Friday, August 7th it will be our weekly classes on Electronic Engineering night. Kids Bus rides during intermission.
