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”
