Darrell Hanestad

Silver Dollar Speedway

In a reversal of the famous phrase of Wide World of Sports, Darrell Hanestad experienced the agony of defeat, then the thrill of victory Saturday night at the Wingless Nationals at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA. During his heat race, Hanestad flipped wildly down the front straightaway. His team made repairs and he transferred from the B-main, then drove to victory in the 30-lap feature. The event marked the end of a sprint car career spanning more than three decades for the popular driver known as "Hammer," as he announced his retirement in victory lane.
