BOHNSACK, FLECK, VAN DER WAL, AND CORPORON SCORE HAWKEYE DOWNS WINS

 

By Brad Grupe

 

(Cedar Rapids, IA 05/02/03)—A cool spring evening brought some great racing to Hawkeye Downs Speedway on Friday night as drivers dueled in round two of the ASA Papa Johns Cup Iowa Wireless Stock Car Championship.

 

Kurt Bohnsack of Iowa City waged a duel with  Sonny Parker of Cedar Rapids for a good share of the 30-lap Barron Motor Supply Super Stock Feature before scoring a relatively close win.  Bohnsack started along side Parker in row one in the feature which was part of KHAK/Hochstetler Towing Night.  Cory Houdek finished third, Bob Ahrendsen fourth , and Greg Hentrich crossed the stripe in fifth.

 

Veteran Late Model driver Dudley Fleck posted the win in the thirty-lap Performance Concepts Late Models feature after taking the lead near the mid-point of the race. Fleck, who started 9th,  emerged with the lead from a three-car battle with Marty Diercks and Johnny Spaw and then motored to the win. Brad Osborn, in his second year on the pavement, finished in second ahead of Spaw. Randy Coghlan, who is running a lower-cost Sportsman motor, finished fourth, followed by Mike Ehde.

 

Curt Van Der Wal notched a strong performance in the Budweiser Late Model Sportsmen feature after starting in the fifth slot. Van Der Wal, the defending track champion, crossed the stripe nearly  a full straightaway ahead of the 2nd place finisher Andy Duggan, who posted one of his strongest finishes since joining the division. Kevin Korsmo, back in action after a one year hiatus, finished in third. Rounding out the top of the order were Tom Burke and Brian Franks.

 

Max Corporon started on the point of the thirty-lap Miller Time Modified main event and never faced a serious challenge as he bolted from the field. Last week’s feature winner, Larry Clausen, scored second according to Alliant Energy Electronic Timing and Scoring, edging out rookie Kyle Hinrichs in a last lap pass. Finishing behind Hinrichs were Bob Gase and Chad Willett.

 

Racing return to Hawkeye Downs next Friday Night with the featured event ,“The Performance Concepts Late Model 50.” Joining the Late Models, Sportsmen, Modifieds, and Super Stocks will be the first appearance of the season for the Special K Motorsports IMCA Stock Cars as well as  the Duffy’s Collectible Cars Legends. The Legends are making their second start of the season.
