MCCALLA TOPS SPORTSMEN AT HAWKEYE
MYERS SQUEEZES OUT HORNETS WIN
By Brad Grupe
McCalla set fast time during qualifying turning the Hawkeye Downs half-mile in 20.449 seconds (88.024 mph). Officials elected to invert the entire field based on qualifying, putting McCalla at the rear of a somewhat slim field of cars.
Once the green dropped, McCalla needed only nine laps to go from last to first and barring anything unforeseen it was just a matter of how much or a margin of victory McCalla would rack up. That margin ended up being 4.579 seconds according to Timing and Scoring as McCalla racked up his sixth win of the season.
The closest car to the winner was Brian Franks who started and finished in the second spot. Andy Duggan, who gained ground steadily on Franks as the laps ticked off, finished in third.

The Sunline Hornets held their Mid-Season Championship on Friday night and for most of the 20 lap feature it looked at though John Shroer of Marion would hit the Coors Light Start-Finish Line first. That is, until some slower traffic came into play and allowed Shaun Myers to slip into the lead on the final turn of the final lap. Schroer maintained second while Myers’ teammate and point leader coming into Friday night, Brian Beaty, finished in third.
Arnie Reif and point leader Tony Olson each had leads at one point or another in the IMCA Sportmod feature with Reif taking the lead back from Olson with just two laps to go as Olson got a bit high exiting a turn. Ryan Luedtke finished third.
Hawkeye Downs Go-Karts were also on hand for another appearance with Tanner
