WI - Threatening weather did not deter the crowd
at Golden Sands Speedway, for the 1st Annual Cox Auto/Roadmaster Trailer Night at the
races. Congratulations to the Short Trax Fan of the Week and the Wal-Mart gift certificate
Jeremy Lepak once again screamed out fast time. Lepak is getting faster and faster as the
season progresses, knocking out fast runners and veteran drivers.
At the start of the Late Model feature, Joe Krzykowski took the lead with MG Gajewski hot
on his heals. Chris Wimmer started moving up fast looking to take a spot from the leaders.
Second fast in time Jason Weinkauf was behind Wimmer looking to pass. By lap ten Wimmer
had made his way around Gajewski, working on Krzykowski. The two fast runners battled it
hard. With just seven laps to go lapped traffic started to come into play. Mark Eswein
also started moving up the pack to join the leaders. As the cars started moving around the
lapped traffic Wimmer was able to make his way around Krzykowski for the lead. Wimmer sped
ahead passing cars at the rear of the field creating even more lapped traffic for everyone
behind him. As the checkered flag fell Wimmer took the win with Krzykowski in second and
Gajewski in third.
Jason Kirsling took the fast time slot in the Super Stocks and opted to take the Letter
Perfect Challenge, which was up to $200.00.
Scott Hamel took the lead with Shawn Stelzer right behind him. Stelzer had been having car
troubles and was looking for a win. Fast runners, Keith Bohmsach, Randy Storlie, and Jim
Cormack started moving up the pack. Kirsling started fighting against the slower cars in
the rear, trying to get to the top to take the challenge home. Hamel drove hard. By the
middle of the race Storlie was able to get around Hamel for the lead.
Something happened to Hamel and he started
losing positions rapidly. Cormack and Kirsling were right behind Storlie. With five laps
to go, Kirsling got around Cormack, and started working on Storlie for the lead. Storlie
held on tight. Everyone was at the edge of his or her seats. Was Kirsling going to get
around Storlie and take the challenge money home! With some very intense emotions the
checkered flag fell giving the win to Storlie. Kirsling finished second. An excellent job
for starting in the back of the pack. Cormack finished third.
Marv Flick took the fast time in the Pure Stock division and opted to take the Carquest
Challenge, which was up to $250.00.
With a yellow right off the bat in the start of the feature, Mike Somers slammed his way
up to the front, with John Matthews, Brad Scholze and fast timer Marv Flick right behind
him. Lapped traffic came into play right away, as the top runners maneuvered their way
around them. Somers kept his lead with Scholze right behind him. Flick was able to get
around Matthews for the third position. With all the lapped traffic between all the
front-runners, cars were not able to advance easily. Somers took the win with Scholze in
second and Flick in third. A good run for Flick from starting at the back of the pack.
The crowds favorite, the cruisers joined the field once again for an awesome show.
Cars were turned side ways and spinning out in every lap. Its amazing how two people
can communicate so well to miss the cars that have spun out in front of them.
Congratulations to the top three winners. First place Justin Blenker and Josh Kampert.
Second place. Rick Cisewski and Jack Szymkowiak. Third place Rod Feltz and Ron Rochinski.
