NO REPEAT WINNERS IN TWIN FEATURES AT HAWKYE DOWNS
(Cedar Rapids, IA 051501)—The hearty souls braving the cold and damp weather were treated to some great racing at Hawkeye Downs Speedway on Friday night as Hawk Performance and KHAK-FM presented twin features.
The first feature in each of the ASA Member Track/Hawk Performance Championship Series divisions was lined up by season point average, with the top 12 in points inverted and the rest of the field arranged by points behind the top 12.
The second feature in each division was based on the finishing order from the first feature. The top 12 finishers were inverted with the rest of the field falling in behind based on their finish in the first feature. The Super Stocks followed a slightly different format with the field just split into two features based on points.
Brad Dvorak won the first Barron Motor Supply Super Stock feature after starting well back in the field. Dvorak snagged the lead from Aric Becker just past the halfway mark of the 25 lapper and motored to an easy win.
Brian Franks, who’s been subbing for Brenda Harrington, took home the hardware in the second Super Stock Feature out-dueling Kurt Bohnsack for the lead in the early laps and cruising to the win. Bohnsack maintained second while Mike Brecht finished in third.
Josh Walker disposed of TJ Schaefer on the third lap of feature number one in the Aggregates Late Models and went unchallenged the rest of the way to collect the win. Schaefer held on to the number two slot with Wade Prasil finishing third.
Curt Martin saw a healthy lead erased by the caution flag in the first second Late Model feature and that was all Justin Diercks needed to snag the lead. Diercks had to survive a couple caution flags and restarts himself before finally earning the win. Martin finished in second with Jeff King crossing the stripe in third.
Scot Johnson took a flag-to-flag win in the first Budweiser Sportsmen feature but not without some heavy pressure from JJ Meyer. Meyer had to settle for second with the other half of the Johnson family, Scot’s father Dave Johnson finishing in third.
The second Sportsmen feature looked to be Craig Bender’s for the taking until a yellow wiped out a huge lead. Bender’s mount apparently faltered on the restart, which allowed Curt Van Der Wal and Martin Ballard to rocket by. Van Der Wal took his third win of the season with Ballard finishing in second. Tom Burke was third.
Larry Clausen scored his second feature win of the season by winning the first Miller Time Modified feature. Clausen battled with Trent Ross before taking the lead with seven laps remaining. Mike Schulte rallied to finish second while Ross held on to third.
The second Open Wheel Modified feature went to Mike Schulte making it his fourth trip to victory lane this season. Schulte took the point from Keith Gogel with ten laps remaining and took the win despite a number of caution flags and some wild three-wide racing through the pack. Arlo Becker finished second with Gogel in third.
