August 4, 2000;
Plover, WI - The 2nd Annual Kwik Trip/Tobacco Outlet night
at the races brought some added activities. The Natures Touch Milk Mobile was here
handing out samples of milk in Got Milk? Collector glasses. Fans could also have their
pictures taken with their best milk mustache. All entries then went into a national
contest for the next Got Milk? ad.
||Got checkered? Jeremy Lepak
(#40) does! Lepak became the ninth different winner of the season in Super Late
Model feature action. Lepak won out a late race battle between himself Chris Wimmer
and Jason Weinkauf to score the win, which was his first of the season.
Congratulations to Justin Monk the Short Trax Jr. Fan Member of the
week and to Jennifer Krokowski the winner of the Wal-Mart gift certificate.
|Fast qualifier Doug Drost
(#32) had his evening go sour after and incident in the heat race which damaged his car.
Drost was able to return and run a few laps in the feature event before retiring
for the evening.
The Super Late Models roared out the low times tonight. It took a
very low twelve to even make the feature. Doug Drost was the only car to time in the
elevens and ended up with fast time. Doug opted to take the Hot n Now Ultimate
Challenge which was up to $600.00.
Jeremy Lepak took the early lead in the feature with Burton Brown and Jason Weinkauf right
on his heels. The first caution came out on lap four, with a spin between MG Gajewski and
Kirby Kurth. Doug Drost headed into the pits with car troubles for a previous heat race
incident. At the restart Lepak took the lead again. Brown fell back a few positions giving
way to Chris Wimmer and Allen Check.
||He held on! Frank
Nitzke (#18) gathered up his errant mount and was able to continue without spinning.
He eventually finished ninth in the Super Late Model feature. Jeff Weinfurter
(#3) makes it safely past on the outside.
The top positions stayed, while faster cars towards the rear of the
feature started advancing in positions. Mark Eswein, Scott Beyer, and Jeff Weinfurter
started to move up to race with the leaders. Wimmer was able to get around Weinkauf for
the second position. Wimmer had a hard time trying to get around Lepak and decided to take
the outside groove. Eswein saw opportunity in this and maneuvered around Check. All five
of the top drivers were side by side, sometimes three wide! With Wimmer racing hard on the
white flag lap trying to get around Lepak on the outside, he got loose coming out of the
turn and lost a few positions, giving Weinkauf the position. Lepak took the win with
Weinkauf in second and Eswein in third.
||Keith Bohmsach (#24) has
made a habit of finding victory lane of late. This evening he held off Jason
Kirsling to win the feature event. Kirlsing and Bohmsach are very close atop the
point standings with Kirsling ahead by a mere two points.
A whole crew of new faces made the dash event in the Super Stock
division. Carl Saylor ended up with fast time and opted to take the Letter Perfect
Challenge, which was up to $400.00.
Keith Bohmsach jumped ahead of Brian Stroik right away at the start of the feature. Rookie
driver Mike Brooks moved up right away also. Brooks has improved tremendously this season.
Fast runner, Jason Kirsling got around Brooks and started working on Bohmsach. Fast
runner, Jim Cormack pulled out right away with car problems that started earlier in the
night. Alan Sankey, who has also been very fast lately showed his presence in the top
positions. Sankey worked his way around Brooks and was on the back bumper of Kirsling.
|The Super Stock dash flies
by a packed house. Here Alan Sankey (#3) and Jim Cormack run wheel to wheel for the
lead. Cary Lyons (#82) would pass both for his first career dash victory this evening.
Randy Storlie, who missed time trials due to car problems, had to
start at the back of the semi feature, won that, and advanced to the feature. Storlie was
now in the fifth position of the feature. Storlie has been a tremendous force in the Super
Stocks this season. Lapped traffic started coming into motion the last few laps of the
race. At times lapped traffic has made some major position changes, but all drivers held
tight to their respective positions. Bohmsach took the win with Kirsling in second and
Sankey in third.
Must be the night for new drivers in the fast times. The Pure Stock division also showed
some new faces in the fast spots. Curt Blenker took fast time and opted to take the
CarQuest Challenge, which was up to $450.00.
||Matthew Pyburn (#71) motored
out front of the Pure Stock main event this evening and held off his rivals for the
Chris Brooks and Neal Soyka dominated the top positions for a while
until Matt Pyburn, finding some power moved up and stole the top position away. A caution
came out for Marv Flick as he spun in turn four. This allowed Brad Scholze and Matt
Osowski to move up. Mike Somers also was making his way up to the top. Somers made his way
around Osowski with two laps to go. Scholze tried hard to knock Pyburn out of the top
spot, but Pyburn held on and took the win. Scholze finished second with Somers in third.
action! John Williams and Jason Pingel (#7) earned their first career 2-man
Cruiser victory and celebrated their victory in the left photo, while Dave and Dan
Glodowski (#00) have proven to be front runners and score a win this evening in their
feature contest on the high-banked third mile oval.
Twenty-three cruisers showed for two crash and bang races.
The first race had John Willimas and Jason Pingel in first, Brandon Feit and Mike
Oehmichen in second and Josh Kampert and Kristifer Blenker in third. The second race had
Dave and Dan Glodowski in first, Jerome Wojcik and Kyran Knudtson in second, and Eugene
and Dean Kramer in third.
