Wermling Takes Third Feature in a Row

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Mechanical issues from broken belts, loose hoses, flat tires, an engine, distributor, ignition failure, suspension parts, and multiple transmission failures had many drivers headed to the pits early on Saturday night. With seven of eight total heats going caution free, Tommy Bush in his Modified brought out the first caution in the final heat as he got sideways down the front stretch. As he was attempting to avoid a collision, Tony Steward went low on the track but was unable to get clear before Bush came down the track and hit him on the right side.

During the Not So Pure Stock feature fifteen-year-old Kory Wermling worked his way up from a seventh starting position to claim his third consecutive victory this season. Wermling now has four total victories this year. Matt O’Connell attempted to start the event after his second place heat finish, but a bad transmission had O’Connell headed to the pits just after the green flag flew. Bill Handel returning to the track after 25 years of not racing brought home a solid fourth place finish.

The Midwest Modifieds are still off to a rocky start as new drivers are trying to get the feel of their cars. Beau Brown had to watch from the pits as he lost another transmission during his heat. Sean McBee worked his way up from a fifteenth place starting position and multiple wrecks to a second place finish. Paul Leach crossed the checkers ahead of the rest for a second week in a row.

Beau Brown and Nick Hunter were at it yet again in the Street Stock feature. Paul Lease was with them for a bit but a miscalculation had him spinning into the infield pit area. As Lease was off the racing surface, he had to wait for a caution to rejoin the race. Brown and Hunter continually swapped the lead as the laps wound down. With two to go they were only separated by a foot, but Brown was just a little stronger this past week and managed to get the advantage when the white flag flew. Hunter had to settle for second this week.

The Modifieds got off to a rocky start as two cautions flew before the first lap was completed. Mark Wermling went out with distributor issues. Joey Price and Vernon Hill kept fans on their feet as a great battle ensued for the victory. Lap after lap Price would get inside Hill, but just didn’t have enough to clear him. Vernon claimed his first victory in the Modified class for the season.

The speedway will not have a Saturday show this week due to the Fourth of July celebrations on Monday night. Racing will start at 6:00 p.m. with the Not So Pure Stock, Street Stock, Midwest Modified, Super Stock, Modified, and ground pounding Late Models. The best place in Great Falls, Montana to view the fireworks as the show will be interrupted when the city fires off their spectacular show. Racing will resume following the display.

More Cash on the Line for 141 Speedway Racers July 3rd

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

(Francis Creek, WI)- With eight different winners in as many weeks of racing in the Brian Peterson Builders Grand Nationals at 141 Speedway in Francis Creek, the pot has been sweetened yet again.

Track promoter Bruce Conard has decided to pay $600 to the winner of that division’s feature on Sunday night, July 3 if the driver is a first time feature winner this season. On Saturday, June 25, The “Whitelaw Weapon” Kevin Naidl captured his first career feature on dirt, leading wire-to-wire en route to victory at the high-banked, third mile, clay oval.

Being a first time winner on the year, Naidl pocketed $175 in bonus bucks, pushing his feature winnings to $500. “With no other Grand Nationals running in the region next Sunday we’re hoping for a pretty solid field of Grand Nationals for that show,” said track promoter Bruce Conard. “We’re throwing another $100 on top so a first time feature winner on the year will pocket $600.”

Besides Naidl, the other drivers who have won features this year include brothers Alex and Ben Stumpf from Brillion, Chilton’s Steve Schneider, defending track champion TJ Smith of Menasha, Manitowoc’s Logan Rhode and Plymouth drivers Ryan Minster and Brian Gilles.

The Brian Peterson Builders Grand Nationals will join the headlining Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint cars, who will be making their second appearance of the season. Hot laps for the sprinters begin at 6 p.m., with qualifying and racing to follow. They’ll be joined by the sport fours and the 600 cc micro sprints, who will be putting on an exhibition race.
