Blazing hot weather and an equally hot track may have kept a few racers at home for the third race of the DRO Midwest Super Stock Series presented by Victory Performance Products and Mickey Thompson Tires, but the racers and fans who attended were rewarded with some great racing action. Series rookie Jeff Frees and his Mopar proceeded to notch his second race win in succession. 

There were just 15 cars entered at the only eighth-mile track the series competes on, Eddyville Dragway in Eddyville, Iowa. The series was there as part of the track’s Fourth of July celebration.

Although the car count was much lower than it had been at other races this year the regulars that did make the event plus some newcomers made for a great race.
