1979 – Sanger wins “Cheater” special at Aberdeen

Aberdeen, S.D. (July 24, 1979) – Drawn into the Dakotas by some high-purse specials, Iowans ran strong in the special “Cheater’s” race at the Brown County Fairgrounds track in Aberdeen.

The pay off was something else in itself, with heat wins worth $55.55 and the feature winner taking home $999.99 – and so on and so forth throughout the card.

Fastest of the Iowans was veteran Ed Sanger of Waterloo, who went home $1,000 richer by taking the feature race and one of the heats - $1,055.54 richer to be more precise.

Don Hoffman of Des Moines was second and Dick Schiltz of Waterloo was third, making it a clean sweep for the Iowans.
