INDEPENDENCE, Ia. - July 14. "Hammer down" Jason Rauen grabbed the lead away from earlier leader Dave Eckrich on the tenth lap, then lead the remainings 25 for his first series win in the 35-lap Dart Corn Belt Clash late model feature here at the Independence Motor Speedway during the running of the Buchannan County Fair.
Dave Eckrich, who started on the pole, led the first nine circuits, but began to fade while Rauen, who started seventh in the 22-car starting grid, moved to fifth by lap three, to second on lap five, and five laps later, found himself in the lead.

Eckrich still held second at the halfway point, trailed by ninth starting Jason Utter, Curt Martin, and Chris Simpson. Rauen continued to build on his lead, driving through traffic with ease as the Farley, Iowa native would go on to capture the $2,000 win. With Eckrich finally dropping back to sixth, Utter finished second over Curt Martin and Chad Simpson, winner of seven out of the first eight Dart CornBelt Series Features. Brother Chris Simpson was fifth after starting 11th.
