(CEDAR RAPIDS, IA  060101)--  It was business as usual at Hawkeye Downs Speedway on Friday night after storms passed to the north and south of the track and the ASA/Hawk Performance Championship Series program started after a minimal delay. A healthy contingent of fans braved a cool windy night and were rewarded with some great racing.


            Jeff Franks took home the hardware in a special 70-lap race for the Barron Motor Supply Super Stocks after taking the lead with 25 laps to go. Roger Merta led from the drop of the green to that point and finished third behind Brad Dvorak, who was coming on strong at the end of the race. Kurt Bohnsack and Don Johnson filled out the top of the finishing order.


            Jeff King was awarded the win in the “Powerade 50” for Aggregates Late Models after the apparent on track winner, Dudley Fleck, didn’t pass technical inspection. The win was King’s first of the season and he is the fifth different driver to win a feature in the Late Models.


            Greg Kastli finished second with Jim Ross, Curt Martin and Keith Siefken filling out the top five.


            Johnny Mudd started on the point in the Budweiser Sportsmen feature and scored a flag-to-flag win edging out JJ Meyer. Mudd survived several challenges from Scot Johnson, Dave Johnson and finally JJ Meyer before collected the checkers.  Meyer finished a strong second while Dave Johnson, Scot Johnson and John Henecke completed the rest of the first five finishing spots.


            Brian Allen broke the streak of feature wins held by Mike Schulte and Larry Clausen in winning the Miller Time Modified feature.  Schulte was coming on strong as the laps ticked off but couldn’t stage a serious challenge as the checkers waved.  Arlo Becker finished third with Larry Clausen and Bob Gase crossing the stripe in fourth and fifth.


            BJ Goodin has a clean sweep going so far this season in the A-1 Performance Marine Legends after picking up his third win in three outings this season. Goodin took the lead from Tom Frady with ten laps to go before notching his third win of the 2001 campaign. Frady finished in second with Kevin Foreman, Warren Ropp and Keith Moline rounding out the top five.
