Cade Dillard Wins Hawkeye 100 Prelim at Boone

Mississippi Thunder Speedway WoO Weekend on Deck

By Ben Shelton

ROBELINE, La. (05/04/21) – The past month has been one of the most challenging stretches of Cade Dillard’s career. From hard crashes to mechanical failures, the Louisiana native has endured considerable adversity.

However, over the course of last weekend Dillard enjoyed better luck. In fact, he even added his first win of the year in his S&S Fishing & Rental Inc. No. 97 MB Customs/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model with a World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings victory in the opening round of the Hawkeye 100 at Boone Speedway.

“I don’t think it’s a big secret that we’ve battled an unbelievable amount of bad luck for the past month. However, there’s been no quit in this team, and to go to Victory Lane this past weekend was a much-needed boost that our whole team needed,” Dillard said. “We got a win on Friday, and then on Saturday we had a fast car and were running in the Top 5 before the flat tire. Even though we had the flat, it was still a good night and a good weekend for us, and we’ll look to build on that in Wisconsin this weekend.”

Friday night found Cade Dillard in action at Boone Speedway (Boone, Iowa) in the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series-sanctioned Hawkeye 100. With a pair of preliminary features set for Friday, Dillard qualified third-fastest, which positioned him third on the starting grid for the 25-lap A-Main.

Slipping past race-long pacesetter Brandon Sheppard on lap 19, Cade led the remaining six circuits to capture his second win of the season and a $3,000 prize. He topped Shannon Babb, Sheppard, Billy Moyer, and Ricky Weiss at the line.

With the grid for the second preliminary feature set by inverting the top-12 finishers from the first feature, Cade improved four spots in the 25-lapper to register a ninth-place finish.

On Saturday, Dillard picked up a heat race victory, locking him into sixth-starting position for the $30,000-to-win Hawkeye 100. Starting on the second row for the first-ever three-wide start, Cade ran in the Top 5 before suffering a flat tire. He rejoined the tail of the field and went on to salvage a 13th-place finish in the 100-lapper.

Cade has climbed to sixth in the latest World of Outlaws point standings. For full results from the weekend, please visit www.WorldofOutlaws.com.

Cade Dillard Racing will roll into Mississippi Thunder Speedway (Fountain City, Wis.) this weekend – May 7-8 – for the inaugural Dairyland Showdown presented by Dynamic Concrete Resurfacing. The weekend includes a $12,500-to-win program on Friday and a $22,500-to-win race on Saturday. Additionally, if a driver can sweep both events, they’ll receive a $5,00 bonus to bring their weekend take to $40,000.
