Weather woes hamper Wild Card Wednesday at Hamilton County Fair

Print this page
July 27, 2018

With one main event in the books and the second just a few laps shy of the finish, the skies opened up and soaked the action during Wild Card Wednesday at the Hamilton County Speedway driven by Spangler Automotive.

Points leader Ryan Bryant of Mason City rolled to victory in the USRA Tuner division and Myles Michehl of Fort Dodge was declared the winner when the Diamond in the Rough USRA Hobby Stock main event was stopped and declared official with four of the scheduled 15 laps remaining.

Four other divisions were unable to face off in their feature race so those will be completed this Saturday, July 28, during the regular Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series event that night, making for double features in all four classes.

Drivers not in attendance Wednesday can still partake in the make-up features on Saturday, lining up behind those already locked in to those races. New Stein Heating & Coling USRA B-Mods entries will have a $90 entry fee—the same amount it pays to start the race.

The entry fee for Seneca Foundry USRA Stock Cars will be $100, Olsen Family USRA Modifieds will be $110 and Malvern Bank Super Late Models will have a $150 entry fee to compete in the make-up feature.

New entries will line-up in the order that they sign in on Saturday, so new drivers are encouraged to get there early.

On Saturday, July 27, Hy-Vee presents Kids Night powered by Good Life RV. More than 100 brand new bicycles will be given away to the kids at the races!

Watch the Malvern Bank Super Late Models, Olsen Family USRA Modifieds, Seneca Foundry USRA Stock Cars, Stein Heating & Cooling USRA B-Mods, Diamond in the Rough USRA Hobby Stocks and USRA Tuners scream around the track and you just might ride off on a brand new bike!

Pit gates open at 4 p.m., grandstands open at 4:30, the drivers meeting starts at 6:20 and hot laps begin at 6:40 with racing to follow.

General admission for ages 16 and older is $12, juniors (12-16) are $8 and kids (11 & Under) are free. Fans can also take advantage of the Family Pack where two adults and two youth get in for $32—a savings of $8. Pit passes are $30, youth (6-10) are $20 and kids (5 & under) are free.

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.
