Blue Grass, IA (June 16, 2001) - Brad Funk became the fifth winner in five WTQMA events Saturday night at the Hawkeye Raceway in Blue Grass, IA. Funk held off charges from Bart Andrews and Robbie Ray to win his first feature of the 2001 campaign.

The heat races of the night saw some great action with Ray and Raymond taking wins. Ray started on the outside of the second row and took the lead going through the first turn. Shawn Scripter followed in second after passing Brian Landry late in the race.

Raymond held off a late charge from Bart Andrews to take his third heat race win of the season. Andrews was working the high side on Raymond lap after lap before lap traffic came into play. Andrews dropped to the bottom and Raymond took the win.

In the feature Funk lead from the pole on the start. Several cautions came into play as the track was very dry and slick. Funk was followed by Andrews and Ray. Andrews cought the wall early in the race and began to drop back as the race went on. Ray could come within a car length of Funk but was never able to pass. Funk lead from green to checkered to take the win.

-Bobbie Ray
