June 16, 2000; Plover, WI - A chilly night did not stop Golden Sands Speedways crowd from watching great racing action. Congratulations to Lucas Betro, the Short Trax Jr. Fan Member of the Week and Sam Carlstine, the Wal-Mart Gift Certificate winner.
Mark Eswein turned fast time in the Super Late Models. He also opted to take the Hot n Now Ultimate Challenge, which was up to $1,300.00!
Chris Weinkauf took the early lead at the start of the Late Model feature. Greg Weinfurter was right behind him, with Kirby Kurth working his way around Weinfurter. Kurth got around Weinfurter and started working on Weinkauf for the lead. Eswein was quickly moving up from the back of the pack. Burton Brown made his way around Weinfurter and started to move in on Kurth. Kurth finally made his way around Weinkuaf for the lead.
Brown over took Weinkauf for the second position on the next lap. Weinkauf started to drop back, as Eswein made his way around. Kurth, Eswein and Brown started beating on each other, each on trying to take over the next position. With three laps to go Eswein made his way around Brown, but on the white flag lap Brown took his position back. Kurth took the checkered with Brown in second and Eswein in third. Good job to Eswein for starting from the back and finishing in third.
A very excited Mike Doughty spun fast time in the Super Stock division. Being in the spot light for fast time for the first time this season, he opted to take the Letter Perfect Challenge, which was up to $350.00.
Scott Hamel took the first lead in the Super Stock feature. Fast runners, Gary Wosick, Carl Saylor, and Jim Cormack were trailing right behind Hamel. Saylor started having car problems and dropped back. Cormack then snuck around and took the second position from Wosick. Jason Kirsling started to make his way to the front. Doughty was still stuck in the back of the pack, boxed in between slower cars. At the half way to go mark, Cormack made his way around Hamel for the lead. After about two laps, Hamel took his lead back.
Hamel was able to hang on to the lead for a while, but fast runner, Kirsling soon stole the lead away. Doughty was finally starting to get away from the slower vehicles. Randy Storlie and Keith Bohmsach, who were caught behind slower cars, started to make their way up to the front also. With just three laps to go, lapped traffic started to come into play. Kirsling was able to maintain his lead, but the lapped traffic sent Cormack back a few positions, allowing Bohmsach to move into the third position. Kirsling took the checkered with Hamel in second, and Bohmsach in third. Doughty finished eighth.
Matt Pyburn, who has had the worst of luck the last two weeks with wrecked motors, took fast time. Pyburn excitedly opted to take the CarQuest Challenge, which was up to $100.00.
Chris Brooks took the lead first, but was quickly overtaken by Duane Robinson. Lapped traffic came into play already by the fifth lap. Marv Flick started moving up from the middle of the pack, and took the top position away from Robinson. Pyburn started to make his way up to the top of the field, looking for the win. Fast runner, Brad Scholze moved up flying past the slower cars. The leaders maneuvered their way around all the lapped cars, holding on to their respective positions. Flick took the checkered with Robinson in second, and Scholze in third. Pyburn finished in fourth.
Twenty-six cruiser cars showed up to race. The first feature had Justin Blenker and John Kampert in first with Dave Haney and Joe Greening in second. Jack Szymkowiak and Rick Cisewski took third. The second feature had Joe Mroczewski and Troy Engman in first, Dave Glodowski and Dan Glodowski in second, and Jim Koback and Mark the Bar in third.
