Stewart Defends Home Turf for First East Series Victory
By Anthony Ainslie
6/2/23

A new face made it to victory lane Friday night as the Hauliní with Hoker Trucking Super Late Models East Series made their return to C J Speedway.
The high-banked, 4/10 mile oval in Columbus Junction, Iowa played host to round 8 of the season for the Hauliní with Hoker Trucking East Series and was the sight of the 2nd annual Tony Stewart Tribute. A field of 24 cars filled the pits at the Louisa County Fairgrounds for a Friday night under the lights.
Hometown Favorite Derrick Stewart started his night taking the top qualifier spot after turning in a lap of 18.923 seconds. The nightís three heat races were won by Iowans Luke Petska, Bryan Harris and Jonathan Brauns.
When the field returned to the speedway for the 30-lap main event, Derrick Stewart continued his dominance as he jumped to the lead on the opening lap and proceeded to run away with the show.
An intense battle for second, third and fourth went on behind Stewart as Luke Goedert, Chad Holladay and Jeff Aikey battled for position and valuable points in the championship standings.
Bad luck would strike Goedert as he got into the outside wall on the front stretch while he ran second with only 11 laps remaining. This would be the raceís only caution of the event. The Guttenberg, Iowa driver would end up finishing 19th.
In the closing laps, Stewart continued to pull away from the field. Chad Holladay did all he could to run him down, but no one was denying Stewart. The Ainsworth, Iowa driver led all 30 laps to capture his first ever Hauliní with Hoker Trucking East Series. The win made Stewart the 45th different winner all-time with the series.
Chad Holladay put on a strong second-place finish while Jeff Aikey took third. Point Leader Andy Eckrich came in fourth, and Jason Hahne rounded out the top five.
The Hauliní with Hoker Trucking East Series will return to action on Saturday, June 10th when the tour makes its first of 2 visits to the big half-mile West Liberty Raceway in West Liberty, Iowa.
As for the Malvern Bank West Series, they are back in action on June 3rd for the Ray Houck Memorial at the Adams County Speedway in Corning, Iowa.
