Dawson Hammes Keeps the Streak Alive, Now has Three Straight Wins
Dawson Hammes has come alive here in the second half of the 2017 race season at the Cycleland Speedway. He now has three straight Main Event Wins and continues to close the gap in the Championship points battle. He shows no signs of slowing down and is sure to be a threat over the last four races of the season.
Hammes started from the Pole Position after winning his heat race earlier in the night. He would jump out front at the drop of the green flag and not look back as he went on to lead all 20 Laps of the Main Event. Josh Wooten rebounded from a rough night during Points Race #14, he would cross the line in the second position in his #95 kart. Kyle Woodcock brought the Grandpa George Motors #9 kart home in the third position. Dan Coleman recorded his career best finish on Saturday night, as he crossed the line fourth for his second top five of the season. Ben Mullins would round out the top five in the fifth position in his #11M kart. Mullins also earned Hard Charger honors for the night as he started in the 15th position passed 10 karts en route to his top five finish.
The Points Standings in the Open Intermediate Class show Oroville driver Kyle Woodcock atop the charts with just four races remaining. Woodcock currently holds a 22 point advantage over Josh Wooten in second. Colton Raudman is third in the standings, 107 markers out of the lead. Dawson Hammes keeps chipping away at the drivers ahead of him in points, he is now fourth in the standings, just 118 points out of the top spot. Keagan Medieros has now moved in to the top five in the standings as well. He sits 189 points behind Woodcock. As we head in to the final four races of the season, all of the drivers in the top ten in points still have at least a mathematical shot at winning the championship. Everyone from 11th on down the list has been eliminated from championship contention. Keep in mind the points listed here will not necessarily reflect the points listed online, as these standings have Driver Point Averages factored in for Substitute drivers.
We will take this weekend off, and return on Saturday August 19th, 2017 for the 20th Annual QRC Cup Perpetual Trophy Night! This is sure to be one of the biggest nights of racing of the season as everyone wants a shot to take home the big trophy for the year. Hot Laps will begin at the normal time of 5:30PM for the Open Cars, with qualifying to follow for all divisions.
