#25 Mike Brooks took the fast time in the Super Stock division with a
13.518. Times in the Super Late Models were
getting pretty close to breaking into the 11s. #66
Troy Nelson took the fastest with at 12.090! In
the 4-Cyilinder division #87 Mike Oehmichen ended up with a 15.573 for the quickest time.
#23 Roger Stancyzk took the early lead in the Super Stock division,
with #70 Tim Zuehlke and #87 Brad Scholze right behind him.
Some of the faster cars started moving up trying to take the top positions. Zuehlke ended up in the pits with car problems as
#75 Chris Brooks and new driver #02 Tyler Sauter maneuvered their way up the pack. Fast timer Mike Brooks was stuck in the back. Chris Brooks spun in turns three and four bringing
out the yellow. This allowed #78 Scott Hamel
and #51 Wes Coon to advance in positions. Stanczyk
and Sauter kept exchanging the first and second spots for some great edge of your seat
racing! Scholze ended up bringing out another
yellow losing his spot to Hamel.
#80 Tim Plowman looking for his fourth feature win in a row, took
this opportunity to move around some of the slower cars.
With just ten short laps to go, Sauter got loose bringing out the caution
along with the #34 of Dan Braun. Hamel moved
into the second position with Coon in third. Then
along came Plowman
He took his fast
racer and just started hammering, looking to break the record with the most feature wins
in a row. But being stuck in the back for so
long, he had a lot of work a head of him in just so few laps to go. In the end Stanczyk held on to his top position
with a whole lot of Plowmans car in his mirror.
Hamel finished third, with #01
Cale Laessig moving in to the fourth position.
At the beginning of the feature every car in the Super Late Models
here nose to nose a scorers worst nightmare. #75
Blake Horstman and #27 Pat Williams each taking the lead on every other lap! A caution came out on lap 12, with #81 Greg
Ruffalo. Horstman and Williams kept exchanging
the top positions as the faster cars started weaving their way to the front. #24 Keith Bohmsach made his way up to the third
position by lap 13, with #3 Jeff Weinfurter right behind him. #71 Mark Eswein, usually a top contender, got stuck
in the middle of the pack, along with #75 Chris Weinkauf.
Bohmsach swung around Horstman for the top spot. Horstman lost some power as Weinfurter, and #76
Jason Weinkauf pushed him back to the fourth spot. As
the race came down to one lap to go it could have been Weinfurter or Bohmsachs. Both were neck and neck. Bohmsach held out with Weinfurter in second and
Jason Weinkauf in third. Eswein did make his
way up along with #18 Frank Nitzke for the fourth and fifth positions.
A full field of fourteen cars took the feature in the 4-Cylinder
division. #04 Josh Opper started out in the
lead, but then was overpowered by #27 Kevin Teske. #2
Jeff Cormack and #3 Dale Robinson moved to the front, trying to take the top positions. With just one lap car to deal with the
drivers held on to their positions pretty well. Teske
took the win with Opper in second, Robinson in third.
Thirty Cruisers showed up and put on another excellent show! #86 Kuhn and Michaels took the win in the first
race. #10 Clark and Disher took the win in the
second race. #8 Kuhn and VanStedum took the
win in the third race.
