Results- August 11th 2017

(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.
