HOT Speedway Opens 2001 Season


Drivers and fans braved cool, damp weather this weekend to kick off the 2001 racing season at the Heart O’ Texas Speedway. On Friday, March 16, racers in IMCA modified, hot stock, street stock, mini stock, and pure stock classes ran heats and qualifiers to set the stage for the main event features run on Saturday, March 17. Over one hundred participants from San Antonio to Weatherford and points between and beyond


J.P. Dowell from Killeen bested a field of 32 IMCA modifieds to take home the winner’s trophy and top prize money in the feature event. Glen Allen of Austin went home with the second place prize, and local veteran James Holder of Robinson finished third.

Cody Williamson of Waco set the bar high in the hot stock races by taking the checkered flag in Friday night’s qualifier and the main event on Saturday night. Local drivers Roddy Scott of Robinson and Ritchie Robins of Lorena claimed the second and third place winnings.

Long time racer and frequent winner Doug Andrews of Waco also picked up the wins in his street stock qualifier on Friday and the feature on Saturday as well as the feature win in the pure stock main event. Arnold Hodges traveled for Wells in East Texas to a second place hot stock finish, and Ed Thompson of Waco began the season with a third place win. Riesel’s Tony Lueck was the pure stock second place winner , and Timmy Kemp of Bellmead took third.

The mini stock class boasted a filed of 25 cars that were led to the finish line by Robinson driver Jeremy Oliver. Shad Stevens of Troy followed in second, and Chris Ochoa of Killeen was third.

Racing will continue next weekend. On Saturday, March 24, the Speedway will host the second half of a weather canceled event that was started last October. IMCA modifieds, hot stocks, I-stocks, street stocks, mini stocks, and pure stocks will pick up where they left off after the qualifying events last fall. Drivers that were not present for the first show will be able to qualify. Gates will open at 6:00 P.M., and races will begin at 8:00 P.M.

On Sunday, March 25, the final Enduro of the 2000 racing series that was also a victum of foul fall weather will be held. Gates will open at 12:00 P.M. and the 250 lap non-stop race will begin at 2:00 P.M.
