Four people, including former Dallas County News Editor, Bill Haglund were inducted into the Hamilton County Speedway Hall of Fame recently. In addition to Haglund, the late Whit Hemmingway, his son John Hemmingway and Dick Hahne of Webster City were inducted.
Haglund, along with his wife Judy founded the Mid-States Racing News in Webster City in 1990 and was an announcer at the Hamilton County Speedway for several years.
The four were elected in March during the annual HCSRA chili supper/fund raiser. The formal induction occurred on July 26 during the annual Hamilton County Fair races. The HCSRA is the only organization of its kind in Iowa and has raised more than $180,000 for improvements to the racing facility during its 10 years of existence.
