HDT Lee County Rain Out Sets Up Hawkeye Speed Week
Rain forced race officials to once again postpone an IMCA XSAN Hawkeye Dirt Tour event. The silver lining on those rain clouds, it sets up five straight days that IMCA Modified drivers will be able to race for $1,000-plus pay days.
Bookending the five-day swing are two of the most prestigious one-day Modified events in the country, the Hogan Memorial and the Harris Clash.
The Thursday, June 19, 2014 event scheduled for the Lee County Speedway was lost to rain. The rescheduled date has been set for July 14, 2014. That will create a great opportunity for race teams and race fans to witness a week of great dirt track racing.
On Sunday, July 13, the Benton County Speedway in Vinton, IA will host the 20th annual Hogan Memorial. The IMCA modified winner that night could score over $3,000 in prize money. The top prize is $1,250 to win the 40-lap main event. $50 awarded to lead a lap, and $250 to lead at the halfway point.
Monday, July 14 is the newly rescheduled date at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, IA
On Tuesday, July 15, the IMCA XSAN Hawkeye Dirt Tour has a planned stop at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa. On Wednesday, the track will run its regular weekly racing program, and they are paying the modified winner $1,000 to win.
The final night of the Hawkeye Speed Week takes the travelers to the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, IA. The 23rd annual Harris Clash is set for Thursday, July 17. This is the third night of this five day swing sanctioned as an HDT point-paying event. The winner’s share that night is $2,000.
