SPAW PICKS UP FIRST WIN OF 2003, IMCA STOCK CARS RETURN TO HAWKEYE DOWNS

By Brad Grupe

 

(Cedar Rapids, IA 5/9/2003)—The IMCA Stock Cars made their first appearance at Hawkeye Downs since 1991 on Friday night with 14 drivers signed in. The pavement sanction is a first for IMCA, a Vinton, IA based sanctioning body. The division runs on 62 tracks across the country, including Hawkeye Downs.

 

            Special K Motorsports is sponsoring the 11 appearances that the IMCA Stock cars will make at Hawkeye Downs Speedway this season as part of the ASA Papa Johns Cup Iowa Wireless Stock Car Championships.

 

            Veteran Hawkeye Downs driver Doug Simon took the visiting drivers to task and won the 12-lap feature handily but there were some great battles through the field in the closing laps. Simon, crossed the stripe ahead of 2002 IMCA Super Nationals Stock Car Champion  Larry Silbaugh of Jefferson, IA. Ronnie Godwin of  Earlham was third.

 

            The Performance Concepts Late Models ran their first extra distance race of the season on Friday night with defending track champion taking home the hardware. Spaw started in row four and wasted little time working his way to the front, taking the leap on lap 28.

 

            The best battle on the track was between veteran dirt driver-now Hawkeye Downs rookie- Denny Osborn and Dudley Fleck as Fleck tried to wrestle second spot from Osborn. Osborn gave Fleck the outside groove but he wasn’t able to complete the pass despite several tries. Fleck settled for third with Matt Lundberg fourth and Mike Ehde finishing in fifth.

 

            Brian Helle chalked up the win in the Barron Motor Supply Super Stocks after winning a heat race earlier. Helle led all thirty laps but not without a couple challenges from Aric Becker in the closing laps. Becker settled for second with Arnie Reif, David McCalla, and Jim Hanson finishing out the top of the order, according to Alliant Energy Timing and Scoring.

 

            Larry Clausen picked up his second win of the young season with relative ease in the Miller Time Modifieds. Despite a couple cautions Clausen was able to outdistance the field and finish safely ahead of Jim Williams and rookie Kyle Hinrichs. Bob Gase finished in fourth while rookie Shawn Stinger crossed the scoring line in fifth.

 

            After a one-year retirement Kevin Korsmo returned to the ranks of the Budweiser Sportsmen this season and Friday night he proved he hasn’t lost his touch as he powered his car into the lead on lap thirteen after starting in the third row. Korsmo started outside row three and kept his car in the outside groove as he worked into the lead. Finishing behind Korsmo were defending champion Curtis Van De Wal, Brian Franks, John Henecke, and Martin Ballard.

 

            Also on the card Friday night were the Duffy’s Collectible Cars Legends. Tom Frady of Cedar Rapids notched the win over Crystal Horn and Brett Thomas.  A last lap incident sent frontrunners Eric Appleget and Landon Cassill to the back of the finishing order. Keith Meyer and Mark Hauder were the balance of the top five.

 

            The regular Hawkeye Downs divisions are off the next two week as USAC Sprints and Midgets visit on May 16 and the ASA racing Series visits on the next weekend.
