The “GRP High 5 Bonus” by GRP Motorsports to give added incentive to 5 drivers at the Silver 1000 in Proctor

April 26th, 2009

Duluth, MN – The Como Modified Series presented by the Lake Country Chevrolet Dealers is pleased to announce that GRP Motorsports of Stillwater, MN will provide added incentive for the 5th race of the Como Mod Series schedule – the Silver 1000, by offering cash prizes to five select drivers after the first four races of the 2009 season.

The “High 5″ works like this:

Five drivers square off for the bonus prizes at the Silver 1000 on September 3, 2009. Those five drivers will be determined during the first four races of the season based on top five finishes in the feature races. GRP will award a very simple point formula based on 5,4,3,2,1 for positions 1 through 5. The top five drivers in High Five Points after the first four shows become eligible for the bonus at the Silver 1000. The highest finishing driver of those five will earn a $750 bonus while the second highest finisher will get $250. That means a total bonus of $1,000 will be paid out! The bottom three finishers unfortunately will earn nothing. Should the Silver 1000 rain out or another race end up being nixed by the weather and not made up in time, the Hibbing Labor Day race would be the fallback for the fifth race.

To keep up with the GRP High 5 Bonus visit the Como Modified Series presented by the Lake Country Chevrolet Dealers website at: http://www.comomodseries.com/ and “Fuel The
Thunder!”

ESTEY TOPS COMO MODIFIED SERIES 30 LAP FEATURE

June 2nd, 2008

Estey won the 30 lap feature with a pass on Modified rookie driver Ryan Aho after the only caution flag of the event which came on lap 23 when Dean Yrjanainen and Jody Bellefeuille who had taken the Como Provisional, clashed on the front straight. On the restart Estey who had been bottled up behind Bill Byholm,
found clear track between himself and Aho. He took advantage and went outside of Aho in turn one and grabbed the lead off turn two and raced away leading the final circuits for a convincing win.

25 cars were scheduled to take the green flag for the 30 lap main event. After the pole dash, Estey and Jayme Lautigar who had finished first and second respectively in the ’07 final Series points, shared the front row. At the start Estey and Lautigar were too close to call at the line for the lead on the first circuit but Estey quickly gained the point with Lautigar second ahead of Al Uotinen and Ryan Aho. The battle for fifth was between Joey Jensen and Jeff Wood. Estey extended his lead in the early going with Jensen winning out. The skirmish for second heated up as Lautigar, Uotinen and Aho battled with Aho going to the top groove and working his way past into the runner up spot. He then set out after the fleeing Estey who found himself battling
through traffic at the rear of the pack. Aho caught Estey in a gaggle of lapped cars as the 15 lap half way point was reached. At that point the top ten included Estey in the lead over Aho, Lautigar, Uotinen, Jensen, Wood, Craig Thatcher, Darrell Nelson, Bill Byholm and Don Copp.

On lap 16 Aho got to the outside of Estey in traffic on the back stretch and
completed the pass on the front stretch. Aho was able to stretch his lead over Estey until the lap 23 incident when Estey was able to return the favor going on for the win. Aho, Lautigar, Uotinen and Jensen completed the top five at the finish. A total of 42 WISSOTA AMSOIL Dirt Track Series Modified were on
hand for the event.
