JUSTIN DIERCKS REPEATS AS MILLER 100 WINNER IN FRONT OF PACKED HOUSE AT HAWKEYE DOWNS

 

By Brad Grupe

 

(Cedar Rapids, IA  061103)—Justin Diercks raced away from the field early on in the 31st running of  the Miller 100 to lay claim to his second straight win in the event. A couple late cautions put Dudley Fleck and Johnny Spaw within striking distance but Diercks was able to power around the Hawkeye Downs half-mile despite losing power steering during the race.

 

            A new format was used to set the starting lineups this year, as Alliant Energy Timing and Scoring recorded the practice times of the cars during hot laps. The fastest six cars were inverted based on a draw with the balance of the field set by time.

 

            Diercks started inside row two of the 23 car field and wasted little time taking the point, which he never surrendered. Fleck held on to second with Johnny Spaw third, Tony Bagstad fourth, and Jay Herbst fifth.

 

            This year the name of the event was changed slightly to the “Keith Fleck Miller 100,” to honor Mr. Fleck for his sponsorship and contributions throughout the years to the race program and the racers of Hawkeye Downs.

 

            The other divisions of the ASA Papa Johns Cup Iowa Wireless Championship were also in action for the race, which kicked off the 2003 version of the Hawkeye Downs Fair.

 

            Kevin Korsmo picked up his second win of the season in the Budweiser Sportsmen feature easily outdistancing Andy Duggan and Scott Wennermark. Korsmo started in row two and emerged from a three-wide opening lap as the leader.

 

            The Miller Time Modified feature was a wild affair that thrilled the capacity crowd with three-wide racing and multiple position changes. Arlo Becker held off a determined Max Corporon to claim the win. Corporon tried high and low lines to pass Becker but the cagey veteran was able to thwart each attempt. Corporon, sporting a GM “Crate Engine,” finished in second with Shawn Stinger crossing the stripe in third.

 

            Landon Cassill continued his impressive season in winning the Duffy’s Collectible Cars Legends Feature. Cassill started in the third row and wrestled the lead away from Ross Zumbach to collect the checkers. Zumbach was scored second, with Tom Frady finishing third.

 

            Jayson Scott picked up his first win of the season in the  30-lap Barron Motor Supply Super Stocks feature. The event was slowed by a couple cautions which kept the field bunched. Bob Ahrendsen finished second with Arnie Reif crossing the stripe in third.
