2020 Christie Door Company Iron Man Challenge USRA B-Mod Champion Dan Hovden
USRA Director of Track Operations Bryce Hall, in conjuction with RacinDirt.com, recently spoke with 2020 Christie Door Company Iron Man Challenge USRA B-Mod Champion Dan Hovden to discuss this past year in the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series and what lies ahead for the 27-year-old from Decorah, Iowa.
Launched in 2010 as a series for Stock Cars, the USRA B-Mod division was added to the Iron Man Challenge lineup in 2011. Between the two classes, 14 different champions have emerged from 21 title chases.
No new names were added to the list in 2020 as brothers Dan and Mitch Hovden of Decorah, Iowa, emerged as the 2020 Christie Door Company Iron Man Challenge champions. Both are previous series champs.
It was Dan's third Iron man hardware in four years after winning it in 2018 and 2017 as well. He finished third in 2019. Consistency paid off for the champ as he need just one victory to go along with his 12 top-five finishes in 17 starts, holding off USRA B-Mod national champ Jim Chisholm by a single point.
