JEFF PAUL SCORES SK VICTORY AT SPEEDBOWL

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

Bruce Thomas Jr. collected his seventh victory of the year in the 30-lap Late
Model race.

Other feature winners were Jack Aquilina (Sportsman), Phil Evans (Mini Stock),
and, Mark Bakaj (Legends).

“Tonight we came with a car that you could drive anywhere you wanted, inside or
outside. We just really hit the set-up right, and that wasn’t happening a lot
earlier this season,” said Paul.

Well-aware of who was on his bumper in the closing circuits, Paul’s game-plan of “protecting the bottom” worked to perfection.

“Rob (Janovic), is in the points race, and I knew he’d not do anything crazy,”
commented the winner. “It was a matter of hitting my marks. If he was going to
pass me, it would have to be on the outside, and that lane wasn’t really there
tonight. Plus, he’s the type of driver that you can race with without worrying too much”.

Rookie and recent Berlin High School graduate Matt Gallo was third followed by
Dennis Charette and Jeff Pearl.

Shawn Monahan came into the event the point-leader, but was forced pitside after a wreck that also involved Dennis Gada and Zach Sylvester. Janovic now sits atop the standings.

In Late Model action, it was Bruce Thomas Jr. taking the win. Grabbing the top
spot on lap-13 as steering failure knocked leader Ron Yuhas Jr. out of the race, he finished the event a car-length in front of Tim Jordan.

“It’s all about the spotters,” stated Thomas on his late-race duel with Jordan.
“My brother Nate kept me informed on where Jordan was. I was trying to save some of my car for restarts. You have to trust what your spotter is saying no matter how close you are to the other guy. People just don’t realize how important they are”.

Finishing third was Larry Goss followed by Ernie Bertrand and Dave Zemke.

Jack Aquilina scored a commanding victory in the 20-Lap Sportsman race, coming in several paces ahead of a torrid three-way battle that included Dwayne Dorr, Mark Lajoie, and Al Stone III.

The battle for second eventually went to Stone, with Lajoie, Dorr, and Jim
Procaccini rounding-out the top-5.

It was Aqulina’s third feature win of the season.

An eight-year veteran of the division, Phil Evans celebrated his 15th career Mini Stock feature win.

Battling to the outside of Randy Churchill for most of the event, Evans used a bit of strategy in taking the lead.

“I just kept taking him deeper & deeper into the corners figuring it’d wear his
right-rear tire out and I guess it worked,” said Evans. With Churchill eventually fading, his next challenge came from point-leader Ken Cassidy Jr.

“I was concerned about Cassidy, but also knew that he’d run me clean,” said Evans. The kid is like that, he’s one of the best guys here to race with.”

Following Cassidy was Joe Godbout III, Danny Field, and Churchill.

In the Legends 20-lap feature, Mark Bakaj scored his third Saturday night win of the season over Brian Ouimette, Jason Palmer, Michael Gervais Jr., and Chris
Bakaj.

First-Time Winners Hanson, Johnson, Lofdahl, Dalbeck Score Big at ABC

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

The two-day program featured the first of two visits on the season for the WISSOTA late models, and the second of three visits during the season for the WISSOTA Midwest modifieds at ABC.

Friday’s program, presented by Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College and WIMI-FM, brought 36 late models out for the $2,000-to-win, 35-lap A-main during the second stop on the six-race, four-track AmsOil-sponsored tour. Hanson started from the pole and immedately streaked out to a huge lead, building it to a full
straightaway on Jeff Broking and Keane Laakson by lap 9. Before the event was one-third done Hanson was within range to put the tail-enders a lap down. Broking held off Laakson until the halfway point, when Laakson used an inside line to take second.

The fast pace was stalled only once, at lap 18, when Jeff Massengill slammed hard into the turn 1 guardrail. On the restart Hanson pulled away to another three car-length lead, but with seven laps to go Laakson and Nelson had reeled in the leader, who was in the process of putting Terry Lillo a lap in arrears.

Over the final five laps Nelson slipped past Laakson for second and showed Hanson his right-front fender on a couple of occasions, and their two cars were dead-even at the white flag. But Hanson had just enough coming out of the final corner to hold on for his first-ever win at Ashland. In Victory Lane Nelson complemented Hanson on the clean race for the win, while Laakson had 13th-starting Jake Redetzke on his tail for the final tour of the red-clay oval. Tom Nesbitt came home solidly in fifth, ahead of Steve Vesel, Kyle Peterlin, Series points leader Joel Cryderman, Rick Hanestad and Broking.

The Series continues on to the Superior Speedway on Friday, August 17. Late models return to the ABC Raceway on September 28-29 for the 32nd Red Clay Classic.

Scott Lawrence padded his points lead with a clean sweep of Friday’s WISSOTA super stock action, but the feature win didn’t come without its share of drama. Lawrence started 12th on the 24-car grid as Curt Myers pulled away from the pole to the early lead. Scattered yellow flags kept Myers from sprinting away from Joe Oliver and Brian Mikkonen, and Tyler Kintner edged around Mikkonen just one lap before a lap 6 caution for debris.

After two more laps Eric Olson was turned around by Mikkonen, who soon after retired from the event, and from there Myers began to extend his lead by riding the high line as the race stayed green for nine laps. During this stretch Lawrence clawed his way through the field, slipping past Kintner for third just before the yellow lights flashed on for a three-car incident three laps from the finish.

The fireworks started with two laps left, when Charlie Anderson spun in turn 4; at the same time Lawrence, who had worked the bottom groove to sneak under Myers for the lead coming to the white flag, slid up the track into Myers’ line on the front stretch, and Myers couldn’t help but tag the tail-end of Lawrence’s car. The contact continued into turn 2 as several front-runners attempted to slow for the caution lights; the resulting chaos took out several top-ten cars and set up a green-white-checkered finish.

On the final lap Lawrence, whose car was loose from rear-end damage, slipped up the track coming out of the last corner, pinning Myers’ car against the wall. Most of the top ten had to scramble across the front chute and into the infield to avoid the melee, but fifth-running Randy Spacek’s car climbed the front-straight concrete wall and scraped his way above Myers car and under the flag stand. When the smoke had cleared Lawrence had his third feature win of the season, just ahead of Oliver, Kintner, Olson and Spacek.

Greg Jaeger chalked up some valuable points on Friday by taking both the regularly-scheduled feature and the make-up feature from July 14 in the six-cylinder division, as well as his heat. After the first start was waived off in the make-up 15-lapper, Chuck Hawkinson kicked off a tough night by driving his car straight over the turn 1 guardrail, landing on all fours on the other side. From there Jaeger edged ahead of Dale Coddington for the lead just before a three-car mess on lap 2.

The race ran off two more laps before Dan Moncher spun, but from there the show ran off non-stop, and Jaeger gradually pulled away to a seven car-length win. Coddington held off determined youngsters Shawn McFadden, Jr, and Steve Stuart for second, and rookie Travis Swanson trailed in fifth.

Later, in the scheduled six-cylinder A-main, Coddington seemed to get his come-uppance, pulling away from Warren Beede as Jaeger had to work past Don Muzzy and Scott Ovaska into third. Caution-flag slowdowns on laps 7, 8 and 9 kept the field tight, but Coddington pulled away each time. Finally Jaeger got by Beede with four laps left with what later proved to be the winning pass, as Coddington took the checkered flag by a straightway but was later disqualified for refusing a post-race technical inspection.

Beede, Ovaska, Hawkinson and Swanson completed the top five. Jaeger pulled to within one point of leader Stuart in the division’s standings with his effort.

On Satruday the first-time winning continued with the Mid-mods, where Johnson outran polesitter Jimmy Latvala out of turn 2 to take the initial lead in the 15-lap feature. Nick Lavato worked for two laps before taking second away from Latvala, and then a two-car spin brought Johnson back to the field for a restart.

Johnson and Lavato pulled away for their own leader’s duel, while Mark Kangas grabbed third from Latvala on lap 6. Randy Vezina’s spin at mid-race negated a lead-changing pass by Lavato, and a series of spins and get-togethers slowed the pace for a bit until lap 10, when Lavato, coming off a restart, spun by himself in front of everyone but Johnson in turn 2. From there Johnson ran off to the $400 win, a distance away from Kangas, Latvala, Frank Soucek and Wayne Dean. In Victory Lane Johnson revealed that his car was formerly owned by big-mod driver Jerry Hartman and actually had a handful of wins previously at
ABC.

The Mid-mods will return one more time to the Ashland track, on August 11.

Donnie Lofdahl has had more than his fair share of hard luck over the past few years, but his luck was nothing but good as he stormed away with the lead, then held on to survive Saturday’s wreck-filled WISSOTA super stock feature. Lofdahl beat Alan Hartell through the first two corners and had begun to draw away from the close-knit field as the first 12 laps of the 20 provided plenty of action but no delays. Kevin Eder worked past Hartell into second just a lap before Brian Lund’s car slowed to a stop on the back chute, and that brought about a series of issues that kept the race from getting back in rhythm.

The worst of these issues came with the second attempt to restart the event, as a couple of cars that checked up caused an eight-car pile-up directly under the flagstand that took out fourth-place Todd Bonney and completely destroyed rookie Nick Oreskovich’s strong-running machine.

Despite about of third of the field removed, it still took a couple more efforts to get the race on pace, but under green Lofdahl hugged the inside line to keep a determined Eder at bay for his first-ever WISSOTA-sanctioned win. Duane Dunbar completed a solid night with a third-place run, followed by points-leader Lawrence – who started 21st of the 22 on the grid – and Mikkonen.

Dalbeck had been running well recently at Three Lakes for a few weeks, but he came back to Ashland in a big way with his first ABC WISSOTA-sanctioned win and second ever here. Dalbeck was off and running right from the get-go as he built up a near-straightaway lead after a lap 2 restart for a Butch Kummer spin. Points leader Rob Weber moved past Cory Casari for second about four laps in but had nothing for Dalbeck, who took advantage of the lack of yellow flags the rest of the way for his first win here since a pure stock victory on July 8, 2006.

Former track champ Larry Haderly climbed back behind the wheel of a streeter for the first time in over a year and a half to earn a third-place run, ahead of Greg Kuklinski. John Kallas crossed the line fifth but was disqualified for the use of illegal suspension parts, and Casari was awarded the position at the pay window.

Jeff Spacek was saved by a late caution flag and collected his first WISSOTA modified feature win of the season at ABC and 42nd overall here. The polestarter first survived a five-lap side-by-side battle with Hartman but restarted ahead of Hartman after a two-car spin. After another quick caution flag five more laps clicked off under green, during which a number of different cars came up to challenge for top-five runs.

Divisional points leader Dean Yrjanainen gained second on lap 9, with Scott Hudack hot on his heels before a Kelly Checkalski spin. Then Bill Byholm made his move for third but got into Hudack and spun Scott on lap 14, giving both cars flat tires.

Spacek had nearly lost the lead just prior to that stop, but he learned from the lesson well by holding his car to the bottom to keep the faster Yrjanainen from making a winning pass over the final six laps. Tenth-starting Rick Rivord continued his strong recent surge by passing three cars in the last laps for third, and an impressive Duane Dale came from 14th at the drop of the first green flag to steal fourth away from Robby Bunkelman at the line.

“Thank God for the yellows,” Spacek said after the race, “or else Dean was going right by me.”

Glenn Dammer took advantage of the early race leader spinning another car and drove to the front for his track-best sixth pure stock feature win of the season here. Dammer was eighth on the grid when the 12-lapper started, as six-cylinder points leader Stuart dominated the early laps in Bruce Kalmon’s car. Zene Anderson was running third when he tagged Darren Dudley’s second-place car two laps in, bringing about the first of the two caution flags in the race.

Ann Erickson got past Dudley after the restart and stayed with Stuart, while Dammer used an inside dive to drive past several cars into third. Then Dammer’s break came when Stuart, while trying to hold off the challenges of Erickson, made contact with Erickson’s car and caused a spin. This sent Stuart to the back and put Dammer on Erickson’s trunk lid for the last restart of the race, and when Erickson slipped up the track through turn 4 with three laps left Dammer drove through the open door and ran off to his seventh career win here, padding his points lead.

A lap later Erickson repeated her move through turn 4, and Nathan Dees drove underneath for second, while Chad Carlson and Jeff Christman followed Erickson to the final flag.

Action at the 3/8th-mile red clay oval continues on Saturday, August 4, with the third and final round of the Bad River Lodge & Casino Modified Triple Header Series, presented by Rivord Trucking and FastLane Motorsports. The top seven points-earners from the three-race Series will be crowned at the end of the evening, and the top driver will be presented a check for $500 from the championship purse of $2,000.

HANSON TOPS WISSOTA STREET STOCKS

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

Joel Alberts and Mike Sample paced the field in the Dirt Doctor Trucking
WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds and completed the first lap side by side while Bob
Bunne and Chris Adams had their own race for third. Alberts took control
of the lead as Bunne and Adams moved up into a race for second place with
Jimmie Arnold and Bryan Hernandez tracking them down and into the top five.
The battle for position behind them went three wide two rows deep early on
as the drivers vied for every spot on the track. Arnold took over third
with fourteen to go while Adams worked on Albert up front. Arnold made his
car work as they went three wide for the lead on the next lap. Adams took
control with twelve to go followed by Arnold. Bunne and Alberts raced for
third with Hernandez being pressured by Bobby Swanson for fifth. A caution
with eight to go bunched the field back up with Adams leading. Hernandez
now moved into second with Arnold in third. Young hotshoe Brandon Davis
worked into the top five and in the waining laps cleared Arnold for third.
Adams came home with the win followed by Hernandez.

Danny Hanson, Karl Hewitt Jr. and Scott Olson exited turn two three wide for
the lead in the Tim’s Towing and Repair WISSOTA Street Stock division.
Olson and Hanson continued the race for the point for the first three laps
until Hanson took control. Scot Nelson raced with Hewitt Jr. early for
third. Nelson moved into second quickly after taking third and started
working low on Hanson for the lead. The two raced side by side for the next
four laps until Hanson resumed control of the lead. With eleven to go AJ
Zvorak was making the top side of the speedway work and moved into the top
five and shorly thereafter into the third spot. A restart with seven to go
saw Nathan Finley come alive after starting at the rear of the field.
Finley eventually worked past Zvorak for third while Hanson cruised home to
the win with point leader Nelson in second.

After a short intermission for some track prep the US Army WISSOTA Super
Stocks pulled onto the speedway for their feature event. A big pileup in
the first corner saw Jason Gabrielson go pit side along with Bobby
Saterdalen. They didn’t learn too well on the restart again they piled into
the corner three and four wide but with a little bumping and grinding the
supers exited turn two with everyone still moving forward. Josh Bartel held
the lead with Ryan Siegle in second. Chris Groth was trying to work the
inside of Siegle with Chris Klinger pushing the highside of the speedway
trying to get around Groth. In a tight pack the next four laps the second
through eighth place cars were two and three wide all around the speedway.
A caution with fourteen to go ended the good lead that Bartel had on the
field. ON the restart Dustin Nelson moved low on the track and within two
laps took over the top spot wth Siegle and Bartel racing for second. The
race for second raged on for four laps until Siegle took control. Behind
Siegle Ted Marrs and Cole Queensland had slowly worked through the field for
third and fourth as they ran pratically side by side for the first part of
the race. Queensland eventually took over third and with four to go worked
to the outside of Siegle for second. Nelson cruised home with the win by a
full straightaway with Queensland and Siegle rounding out the top three.
Kevin Hager had a solid run working into fourth with Chris Groth in fifth.

Brad Waits has won a lot of races this season and was unstoppable in the EZ
Fabricating USRA Modified feature division. Waits and Tyler Rubin raced out
of two for the lead with Waits taking control at the completion of lap one.
Brian Shaw moved quickly into the second position while Mike Sorensen
quickly worked into a race with Rubin for third. With seventeen to go Waits
was already checking out into a half straight lead. Sorensen and Rubin kept
their race going until this point when Sorensen took over third and Steve
Arpin quickly worked past Rubin for fourth. Two laps later Arpin moved past
Sorensen for third while Bob Timm cracked the top five. Shaw started a
slide backwards with ten to go finishing in sixth. Arpin and Timm had the
best battle for the last ten laps with Timm eventually taking over third
Arpin in fourth. Sorensen finished second a full straight behind winner
Waits.

Dennis Hillson led lap one of the Valley Featherlite WISSOTA Late Model
feature with Neil Eckhart taking the point on lap two. Behind the front duo
Lance Matthees, Mike Prochnow and Mark Teske were three wide for third until
Teske running the high side of the speedway blasted by Hillson to take over
second. A restart with twenty two to go saw Eckhart lead with Teske in
second. Teske led lap five with Matthees now working on Eckhart for second.
A little further back Nick Herrick cracked the top five and then took over
fourth . Another caution with eighteen to go was the last caution of the
night. On the restart Teske took off around the high side with Matthees
working into second. Herrrick worked past Eckhart for third while Prochnow
and Jay Ihrke raced the last ten laps in a great battle for fifth that was
eventually taken by Prochnow.

Racing action resumes next weekend with action in all five classes. Racing
starts at 6:00

Hubert and Kaiser Top Winners List at the Lucas Oil Speedway-July 28th, 2007

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

J.D. Hubert from Cross Timbers, Missouri brought the crowd to their feet in
the Miller Lite ULMA Late Model Feature as he dove to the bottom of the
speedway coming out of turn 4 on the final corner of the final lap to pass
Johnny Fennewald and take the win by .009 sec. Hubert had command of the
field for most of the race but Fennewald held persistent and took the lead
late in the race only to settle for second with the last lap pass by Hubert.
Weaubleau’s Toby Ott had a strong run finishing in third with James Rutledge
and point leader Rylan Long rounding out the Top 5. Long’s point lead is
now 16 points over Kaiser. Heat Race Winners were Chad Frewaldt and Hubert
as 23 Late Models checked into the pits.

In the Sawyer Tire Spring-Bling Late Model Shootout it was Kevin Kaiser
putting his black Ince chassis into victory lane to take the $750 top prize.
Toby Ott jumped out the early lead and led for much of the race but
defending track champion Kaiser was too tough down the stretch and pulled
away to a commanding win. Brandon Dunham rebounded to finish third with
Shawn Williams fourth, and Harlen Kennedy fifth. The rest of the top 10
included Chad Frewaldt, J.D. Hubert, Matt Menzie, James Rutledge, and Donnie
Gemes. The Spring Bling is a program that rewards consistency as each of the
19 drivers that participated had to take the green flag in at least 6 of the
weekly series features run up to this point.

The Pitt’s Homes A-Modifieds would once again be the Stovall/Turner show as
Stovall held to the bottom and Turner went to the top with Turner ultimately
taking the win. Stovall had his Hoffman chassis reskinned this week with a
beautiful new orange paint scheme but the familiar black 99t was just too
strong. Josh Hughes from West Plains, Missouri came across the stripe in
third with Jeff Cutshaw and point leader Rex Merritt both in Allen cars
finishing in fourth and fifth spots respectively. Merritt’s season point
lead has now slipped to 62 over Turner. Heat Race winners were Hughes,
Turner, Stovall, and Terry Kirk. Todd Kallweit won the last chance race to
get into the main event as 33 modifieds were in the house.

Robbie Bryant held strong to win the TCI Transmission Factory Stocks as
Camdenton, Missouri’s Kenny Carroll took the second spot with Derek Brown
finishing in third. Ted Welschmeyer and Troy Reasoner Jr. rounded out the
Top 5. Brian Tillman, James Flood, Sundance Keepper, Keith Webster, and
Robert Brown were 6th-10th respectively. Webster continues to hold a slim 4
point lead over Reasoner Jr. in the point standings. Bryant, Ben Solberg,
and Carroll were all heat race winners as 24 Factory Stocks were in
attendance.

Tanner Young took the win in the Chester Fried Chicken Hobby Stocks with
Kyle Smith, James Coffland, Adam Belt, and Mike Schrader finishing in the
top 5. The remainder of the Top 10 included Don Belt, Chris Williams, Jacob
Hall, Colson Kirk, and Michael McGilvray.

Charlie McClain Wins Street Stock Special and Collects Career First Saturday at Roaring Knob

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

Twenty Street Stocks lined up for their longest race of the year, 25 laps, with Charlie McClain and Mitch Wattelet drawing the front row. McClain
immediately took command in his #05 Ford Thunderbird, but the eventual career first
victory was well earned as McClain withstood constant pressure from Sam King,
also driving a Thunderbird, the entire distance. The tension mounted as late
race cautions tightened the field and kept King on his bumper. As they raced
for the checker, McClain held him off to score the big win. King took runner up
honors with Bob Nelson third, Todd Dennis fourth and Chris Lucy nabbed fifth.
Sixth thru tenth were Bo Karwatske, Mitch Wattelet, Jim Byers, Matt Rishel
and Matt Franks. Mike Duritsky and Sam King were the heat race winners.

Tim Senic looked like he was on his way to his first win in the 25-lap Curt’s
Family Restaurant Super Late Models, but Morgantown’s Gary Dalton, who had
started tenth, had other ideas. After a lap 16 restart closed up the field, the
crafty Dalton made his move on the next circuit passing Senic, and he put it
on cruise control for the final 8 laps to secure his fifth feature win this
year at the Knob. Senic settled for second over Jeff Ferguson, Billy Holbert
(from 12th) and Bob Gordon. Nolan Dalton, Greg Gellner, Doug Stine, John Over and
Larry Baker completed the top ten. Senic and Dalton took heat wins for the
18-car field.

Young Mason Zeigler grabbed the lead at the start of the 12-lap Ft. Necessity
Garage Charger feature. Zeigler led the first two laps before Farmington’s
Don Miller made his move and took the lead on lap three. Zeigler stayed with
Miller and challenged him throughout, but Miller held firm and came home first at
the finish to collect his second win of the season. Zeigler earned a fine
second place finish with Willie Porter third, Mark Peck fourth and Bob Miller
(from 12th) rounded out the top five. Filling out the top ten were Shane
Wheeler, Jr., Jason Humberson, Brad Jenkins, John Matthews and Adam McCormick for the
16 cars on hand. Peck and Zeigler shared heat race wins.

The 15-lap Brooks Auto Group Modified feature had Louie Krushansky starting
on the pole of the 19-car field. Krushansky took the lead at the start and
battled with Phil Jeffries for the first six laps before Vic Vandergrift entered
the scene. Dennis Perigo was the next driver to step up and try to overtake
the determined Krushansky. However, Krushansky was not to be denied, and he
hung on for his first win since opening day. Perigo held second over Vandergrift
at the stripe with Rich Logan fourth and Matt Cosner fifth. Nick Cramer, Jason
Ammons, Todd Daughenbaugh, Andrew Wolfe and Frank Billie were the top ten
drivers. Krushasnky and Phil Jeffries each collected heat race wins.

Ricky Meglaye started fifth in the final event of the night and paced himself
the distance to collect and win his third Garry’s Auto Sales Late Model
feature. Meglaye passed Chuck Bloom on lap nine of the caution filled event, and it
was clear sailing from there. Garry Sisson crossed the line second over
Bloom, Stanley Spooner and Larry Yanero, Jr. to make up the top five. Completing
the top ten were Wayne Jordan, Tom Sieger, Curt Hager, Paul Dominick, and Fred
Zeigler. Zeigler and Robbie Black grabbed heat wins for the 15-car field.

On August 4, Roaring Knob will be closed for the Fayette County Fair. August
11 will be Glotfelty Tire Service Night, and the Brooks Auto Group Modifieds
will be competing in an extra distance event. Along with the Modifieds will be
a complete regular racing program for the Curt’s Family Restaurant Super Late
Models, Garry’s Auto Sales Late Models, GNHTrucking Street Stocks and the Ft.
Necessity Garage Chargers. Gates Open at 4:30 PM with Racing at 7 PM sharp.
