Hawkins scores big win in DIRTcar Fall Nationals at Eldora Speedway


ROSSBURG – Jacob Hawkins drove his car beneath Kyle Stickler’s machine battling for the lead and the $5,000 payday in Sunday’s rain-delayed DIRTcar Fall Nationals by Allstar Performance at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg.

Coming off turn four with 11 laps to go Hawkins car bumped Strickler’s machine, which caused Strickler to spin out on the mainstretch and be done for the afternoon. Hawkins, from Fairmont, West Virginia, led the rest of the way to win while Strickler, from Mooresville, North Carolina, voiced his displeasure with Hawkins on track and afterward.

“We had our hands full,” Hawkins said. “The car was great. We ran Kyle (Stickler) down there from a long ways, and everyone got stacked up there on the cushion. He went to turn down there, and I was there. It’s one of those racing deals. It feels good to get the win here at Eldora.”

Stickler finished a disappointing 25th.

Former NASCAR driver David Stremme was second while Nick Stroupe, Nick Hoffman and Travis Stemler rounded out the top five.

Stemler, from Ionia, Michigan, won the UMP Modified Eldora points championship.

“This is just amazing,” Stemler said. “Not only to win a feature and a heat race but now the championship. Jerry (Bowersock) gave me a heck of fight. The people that run Modifieds around here weekly are pretty awesome to be around.”

In the UMP Late Model A-Feature, Bobby Pierce started fourth but quickly took the lead from Eddie Carrier Jr., eight laps in and never looked back en route to victory in the 40-lap race. Pierce, from Oakwood, Illinois, beat Carrier, from Salt Rock, West Virginia, by 2.3 seconds.

“It’s awesome,” Pierce said. “I’m out of breath. I loved the track. It was fast and rough. I rode the cushion a little bit. It was tricky, but we got the win.”

Pierce finished second in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in July and second in the 45th World 100 in September.

Eldora favorite Jeep VanWormer was second on lap 15 but hit the turn two wall and was done for the day.

Devin Moran was second while Carrier Jr. was third. Josh Rice and Jon Henry rounded out the top five.

Matt Westfall, from Pleasant Hill finished ninth but captured the Eldora Late Model title. He won the Eldora Modified title in 2014.

“It’s pretty cool to win it,” Westfall said. “Especially after winning the Modified deal last year. It’s nice to be able to come out this year and win this.”

On Saturday the final race of the 2015 schedule takes place at Eldora. The UNOH Sprintacular will feature the winged All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars, non-winged BOSS (Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series) and the winged NRA (National Racing Alliance) Sprint Invaders.
