Super-fast racing was in session Saturday for the School’s Out Super Summer Spectacular presented by Casey’s General Stores at the Hamilton County Speedway driven by Spangler Automotive.

In the Olsen Family USRA Modified main event, J.D. Auringer of Evansdale took home the $500 top prize with Webster City wheelman Mark Elliott backing up last week’s win with a runner-up paycheck. Ankeny’s Ben Nading claimed the third spot, while Iowa Falls drivers Chase Ellingson and Devon Havlik were fourth and fifth, respectively.

Defending Iron Man Challenge titlist Derek Green of Granada, Minn., rolled from his outside third row starting spot and rolled out of the speedway with the $400 winner’s check in the Seneca Foundry USRA Stock Cars. Steve Jackson of Polk City took second, followed by Jesse Brown of Nashua, Marshalltown legend Rick Gustin and Webster City’s Todd Staley from 17th on the grid.

Norway’s Tim Plummer led from start to finish to collect the Stein Heating & Cooling USRA B-Mod main event with Alex Zwanziger of Nashua holding off 12th-starting Ty Griffith of Webster City for second. Doug McCollough and Rocky Caudle rounded out the top five.

The Diamond in the Rough USRA Hobby Stocks saw Chanse Hollatz of Clear Lake hold off last week’s Allstar Performance Allstar of the Week, Eric Stanton of Carlisle. Polesitter Matt Smith of Des Moines wound up third, Derek Willert of Marble Rock was fourth and Britt’s Tony Smidt took home fifth-place money.

Matt Oberhelman of Fort Dodge saw the checkered flag first in the USRA Tuner main event. Ryan Bryant of Mason City, Justin Nielson of Luverne, John Dahlsten of Pomeroy and Garner’s Sam Umbarger completed the top five.

Opening in July 1910, the Hamilton County Speedway is the oldest speedway in the state of Iowa. In 1938, work began on the current location at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds. The semi-banked half-mile dirt track was completed in the spring of 1939, and the first races were held on the track in September of that year.

The Hamilton County Speedway driven by Spangler Automotive is located off of US 20 at exit 140, then 1.2 miles north, then 0.5 mile east on Bank St., then 0.4 mile south on Bluff St. in Webster City, Iowa (1200 Bluff St, Webster City, IA 50595).
