AHRENDSEN, SCOTT, GOODIN BAG WINS IN RAIN-SHORTENED NIGHT AT HAWKEYE DOWNS

 

By Brad Grupe

 

(Cedar Rapids, IA  082401)—The “on again”—“off again” rain showers that plagued the area Friday stayed “on” a little too long forcing Hawkeye Downs officials to pull the plug after three features Friday night. The evening’s program started nearly on time after the track was dried following a late afternoon shower. As the Modifieds took to the track for their first feature of the night the rains came again and with an unfavorable forecast the action was called.

 

Rain Checks will be honored for the August 31 Season Championship program.

 

Bob Ahrendsen won his second feature of the 2001 season in the Barron Motor Supply Super Stocks and in doing so took the lead in the points chase. He holds a narrow 7-point margin over Brad Dvorak who finished 10th in the second Super Stock feature after suffering mechanical problems in that race.

 

Finishing behind Ahrendsen in the first feature were John Ness and Derrick Griesehop.

 

The second Super Stock feature went to Jayson Scott, who picked up his first feature win of the season. Scott held off Kurt Bohnsack in the closing laps for the win with Bohnsack settling for the second slot.  Brian Franks finished third.

 

BJ Goodin visited Coca-Cola Victory Lane once again after winning his 7th A-1 Performance Marine Legends feature of the season. In typical fashion Goodin motored through the pack and finished comfortably ahead of the pack. Tom Frady was second with Kyle Hinrichs third.
