Dirt Tracker – Dirt Track Racing Weekend Highlights – May 9
Holy win streaks, Batman. This week's "Dirt Tracker" is loaded with win streaks that kept flashing for the cameras in victory lane. Back-to-back. Three straight. Even a different three straight during a three straight weekend.
The "Dirt Tracker" is a look back on the previous weekend of dirt track racing highlights in eastern Iowa. Six highlights made the list this week on the "Dirt Tracker".
Rob Toland (Hillsdale, IL) scored his 399th career feature win Friday night at the Farley Speedway. He almost nabbed number 400 Sunday at the Quad City Speedway (East Moline, IL), but came up just one spot short.
Donny Erger (Brandon, IA) won Friday at the Fayette County Speedway in the Micro Mod class, and he closed out the weekend with a win Sunday at the Benton County Speedway. It was a “three straight weekend” of sorts for Erger. Curt Himer (Dysart, IA) piloted one of Erger’s cars Saturday at Indee, and “The Coach” put it in victory lane in his first night in the car.
John Emerson (Waterloo, IA) won his second consecutive Late Model A-Main at the Independence Motor Speedway this past Saturday. Not to be out done, Benji Irvine (Oelwein, IA) duplicated that achievement on the same night with his second straight Hobby Stock win at the track. Both drivers are two-for-two (in as many nights) at Indee.
Eric Stanton (Carlisle, IA) has won three straight Hobby Stock features wins at the Marshalltown Speedway in as many weeks. Jeff Mueller (New London, IA) has the same streak rolling, three-for-three at Lee County Speedway.
Matt Gansen (Dubuque, IA) started his weekend with a win Friday at the Farley Speedway. Then he closed out the weekend with a win at Dubque Speedway. That makes three straight wins for the “2G” team when they hit the track and four straight top 2’s.
On Friday, Tony Olson made it three-for-three in the SportMod A-Mains at the Davenport Speedway. He backed that up by making it three-for-three weekend adding the Independence Motor Speedway and Benton County features wins this past Saturday and Sunday night.
