LUNDBERG, HENECKE, CLAUSEN, MCCALLA, CASSILL VISIT VICTORY LANE AT HAWKEYE DOWNS

 

(Cedar Rapids, IA  8/15/03)—Matt Lundberg of Des Moines earned his first feature win in the Performance Concepts Late Models on Friday night, finishing nearly 6 tenths of a second ahead of Brad Osborn of Janesville.

 

            Lundberg started on the point and fought off a challenge from Osborn before securing the win on “100.7 The Fox/ Heartland Express/Orleans Hotel Hawaiian Shirt Night” Mike Ehde of Prairie Du Chien, WI finished in third.

 

            John Henecke out battled  point leader and defending champion Curt Van Der Wal to take the top spot in the Budweiser Late Model Sportsmen feature. Henecke started in fifth and then maneuvered into the lead after an early caution. Van Der Wal, who started a couple spots behind Henecke raced him clean the whole way settling for second.  Johnny Mudd finished third after starting near the rear of the field.

 

The Sportsmen point race remains close with a mere 18 points separating the top 5 drivers.

 

            In other “ASA Papa Johns Cup Iowa Wireless Stock Car Championship” racing, Larry Clausen earned his third victory of the season in the Miller Time Modifieds. Clausen has been atop the points chart all season by virtue of a string of great finishes including three trips to Coca-Cola Victory Lane.

 

            A caution bunched the field with less than five laps to go but Clausen was able to pull away again on the restart, finishing 1.3 seconds ahead of  rookie Landon Cassill according to Alliant Energy Timing and Scoring. Brian Allen was third after surrendering an early lead to Clausen.

 

Dave McCalla continued his mastery of the high groove on the Hawkeye Downs quarter-mile as he won the Barron Motor Supply Super Stock feature. McCalla finished well ahead of Jayson Scott and Don Johnson to secure his second win in the last three weeks.

 

The Duffy’s Collectible Cars Legends returned Friday night with Landon Cassill picking up yet another win. The win was the fifth of the season for Cassill. Finishing second was Tom Frady while Brett Thomas finished in third.
