JACOBS TOPS HOSS WINGED SPRINTS,
McCLINTOCK WINS USST TRUCKS AT HAWKEYE DOWNS
GROTHER, SIEMS, BEATY WIN LOCAL DIVISIONS
Storm Steel/Abrasive Jet and 98.1 KHAK presented a special night of racing Friday with the
annual visit by the Hoosier Outlaw Sprint Series (HOSS) along with a first time
visit by the USST Truck Series. There was also racing in the Barron Motor
Supply IMCA Stock Cars, Barron Motor Supply IMCA Hobby Stocks, and the Sunline
HOSS qualifying, David Gough of Machesney Park, IL unseated Kevin Feeney as the
all-time track record holder by turning a lap of 15.496 seconds for a lap average of just
over 116 mph. Feeney set the previous
record in 2003.
Jacobs of Ft. Wayne, IN was first to cross the Coors Light Finish
Line in the HOSS Winged Sprints 30 lap feature. Jacobs blasted into the lead
from the third row and was in lapped traffic by the fourth trip around the
Hawkeye Downs half-mile. He used the lapped traffic to try and put some
distance between himself and last year’s winner, Tim Cox of Park City, IL.
Cox, made a couple hard runs at the leader but settled for second, driving a
new car. The fast qualifier, Gough
crossed the stripe in third.
The race was slowed by just one caution
with eight laps remaining.
The USST truck feature which included
trucks from the USST, as well as Midwest/Mid-AM, saw Tom McClintock of Onalaska, WI take command of the race on lap 22 as he
executed a high-side pass of Tom Pautsch. Jeff Steenbergen was McClintocks’
closest challenger until the series mandated Competition Yellow on lap 50.
After fueling and making adjustments
McClintock resumed command of the race with John Wood mounting a brief
challenge for the point with about 15 laps to go. Wood faded a bit in the
closing laps with McClintock recording a 2.7 second margin of victory. Kyle
Taylor was third, Steenbergen fourth, and Rick Perry was fifth.
There’s been a close point battle in the
Barron Motor Supply IMCA Stock Cars all season and Friday night did nothing to
change that. Chad
Siems pulled out the win after starting fifth on the grid. Siems nabbed the
point from Doug Otto on a restart after a lap four caution flag bunched up the
field. Logan Hale posted another strong run finishing second, with point leader
Brad Dvorak finishing in third. The win was the third of the season for Siems.
In the Barron Motor Supply IMCA Hobby
Stocks, Dennis Klinsky surrendered the lead to Rodney Grother at the halfway
mark. Grother, who leads the points, motored on to the win after starting in 10th.
Tim Dains crossed the line in second as
well as remaining second in points. Klinsky finished in third while Gary Pfantz
finished fourth and Deb Mefford was fifth.
The duo of Brian Beaty and Shawn Myers
have been a winning combination in the Sunline Hornets since the first couple
weeks of the season. The two share driving duties in the 701 Dodge Rampage
which also splits the points between the two drivers. Friday Night it was Beaty’s
turn behind the wheel and he found Coca-Cola
Victory Lane once again for his third win of the
season. Connie Binder finished in second
after starting on the pole and leading early. Corey Depaw returned to the
controls of the Bighouse Motorsports VW Golf, finishing third. Derrick Beadle was fourth while Dan Vincent
was fifth. Current point leader Nathan
Ballard finished sixth.
