Brown takes 4th of July
win with spectacular finish!
June 30, 2000; Plover, WI - Thousands of people joined in the Fourth of July celebration, for spectacular racing action and one of the best firework shows in the area. Congratulations to Zak Gerzmehle, the Short Trax Jr. Fan Member of the week. Congratulations to Sarah Harrington, the Wal-Mart Gift Certificate winner.
Mark Eswein proved to be fast once again, as he sped away with fast time once again. Eswein opted to take the Hot n Now Ultimate Challenge which was only up to $100.00. Eswein had won the challenge pot last week when it was up to $1300.00.
Burton Brown started on the pole and took the early lead in the 30-lap Super Late Model feature. Jeff Weinfurter was right behind Burton, trying to get around him. Fast runner Jason Weinkauf moved quickly up to Weinfurter, looking to pass both front-runners. Chris Wimmer and Jeremy Lepak quickly moved up the pack also. By lap 14 three drivers went into the pits. It was a race were everyone was loosing their sheet metal. Hoods, fenders, and side panels were being torn off the cars. Not even by accidents, just very close racing.
Weinfurter spun in lap fourteen as Wimmer and Lepak headed into the pits. Brown maintained his lead on the restart with Weinkauf looking to pass. By the 18th lap, Weinkauf lost it and moved six positions backwards, giving the second position around Kurth. Kurth kept his patience and looked at the possible ways of getting around Brown.
With ten laps to go, Eswein made his way up to the fourth position. Eswein battled it out with Kurth for the second position, but Kurth held Eswein off. As the checkered flag fell Brown took his second career feature win at Golden Sands Speedway, with Kurth in second and Eswein in third.
Jason Kirsling proving his racing ability ran away with fast time. The ante went up in the Letter Perfect Challenge, making it a little more appealing. Keith Bohmsach had won it the week before and the pot was only up to $150.00. Kirsling decided to take the challenge, hoping to make his way as a Challenge winner.
Scott Hamel took the early lead, after wrecking his car a couple of weeks ago, but Cale Laessig quickly overtook Hamel for the lead. Gary Wosick and Jim Cormack were making their way up to the top. Kirsling got stuck in the back of the pack behind some of the slower cars.
Mike Doughty and fast runner Keith Bohmsach also started coming from the back of the pack. The race went from green to checkered with some awesome passing and great maneuvers. The Super Stocks put on a spectacular show. With just five laps to go not to many positions changed. Wosick and Bohmsach made their way around Hamel for top positions. Laessig took the win with Cormack in second and Wosick in third.
Bradly Scholze displayed some awesome power as he took fast time and opted to take the Carquest Challenge, which was up to $250.00.
Dan Ernst took the early lead, with all the fast runners moving up from the back of the pack. Lapped traffic came into play by lap seven by some of the newer racers. Mike Somers took the lead by the ninth lap. Marv Flick dropped back to second with Neal Soyka in third. Fast timer, Brad Scholze was still stuck in the back behind some of the slower cars.
On the white flag lap, Somers took the lead with Flick right behind him, but a spun occurred towards the back of the pack causing some major position changes. Somers took the win with Flick in second, and Duane Robinson in third.
