OSKALOOSA, Iowa – Still looking for a repeat winner, the Arnold Motor Supply Hawkeye Dirt Tour next takes traveling IMCA Modifieds to Southern Iowa Speedway and Knoxville Raceway for a pair of midweek shows.
The Wednesday, July 19 feature at Oskaloosa pays $1,000 to win while the Thursday, July 20 Dynamic Drivelines Dirt Duel event at Knoxville totes a $1,500 top prize.
IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Side Biter Chassis North Central Region and Allstar Performance State points, as well as special series points, will be awarded both nights. The Knoxville show will be the final qualifying event for the 2017 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot.

Shryock has posted top five finishes in each of the first four Hawkeye Dirt Tour features this season. Joel Rust has been almost as good and is just two points out of a tie for the series lead.
