SpeedZone Raceway Fall Classic results, September 23-24, 2016

Oshkosh, September 24 – The 2016 racing season at the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway officially came to a close with the Fall Classic featuring 2 days of racing on the 1/3 mile clay oval. A total of 197 different teams competed with champions crowned in feature action Saturday night.

The Street Stocks started off the feature portion of the weekend with a 25 car field taking the green flag. Jeff Richards sat on the pole and led the opening circuit before Jeff Wicinsky took command and started to open a gap on the field. Richards controlled the runner up spot with Jeff Jungwirth, Dan Knaus, Brady Baldry, Shawn Haydon, Alex Crapser and Kevin Bogdanovic all swapping positions in the lead pack. Wicinsky and Richards pulled away from the field after lap 10 and with Jungwirth and Knaus leading the pack behind. Crapser was the big mover steadily advancing as the field started to spread out. By lap 20. The leaders were still comfortably out front, but the field was bunched for the third spot. Jungwirth was in command of third with Crapser working into fourth, Knaus, Gary Kasperek, Paul Diefenthaler and Hayden were right behind.

A spin brought out the first caution of the race on lap 21, erasing the big lead Wicinsky and Richards had on the field. Stacking everyone foe the restart. Richards charged to the lead on the restart, but a mix up started a chain reaction , forcing the second and final caution before a lap was completed. Kasperek stalled up high in turn three and out of the corner, Knaus rode the wall down the front chute before stopping pas the start finish line. There were no injuries and the field was restacked again for the final 8 lap run. Richards again charged under green for the final time to take the lead with Diefenthaler making a charge to move into second a lap later. Jungwirth, Crapser, Paul Ambrosius and Wicinsky were bunched right behind. Richards was able to hold the lead to the finish for his first street Stock feature win of the season. Diefenthaler, the 141 Speedway track champion, was right behind to finisih second. Crapser, the defending race champion, was able to wrestle into the third place finish. Ambrosius made the strong run over the final laps to place fourth. Jungwirth finished fifth and Wicinsky rounded out the top six.

Larry Richards brought the 25 car Grand National field to the green and swapped the lead back and forth with Brian Vinney, Jr until the first caution on lap 6 for a spin. Kenny Richards was able to work into the top spot after the restart and in two lap, brother Jeff, was running second. The front three opened a gap with the field trying to sort out behind. The leaders were the same at the half way point with Roger Lee now holding fourth with Larry Richards, Tim Doehling, Steven Wirtz and Dustin Weiss grouped behind. With 10 laps left, lapped traffic was in play but the leaders negotiated and remained tight in their 3 car pack. A spin brought out the final caution on lap 26, setting up a 4 lap dash, with the entire field now bunched behind the lead trio.

Kenny Richards was up to the challenges from Jeff behind over the final four laps and collected the checkered flag for his first win here this season. Jeff took second with Doehling and Lee working into third and fourth at the finish. Vinney was fifth and Wirtz rounded out the top six.

It took three tries to get a lap completed in the IMCA Modified main, but then it was flat out hard core racing for the 30 lap contest. Steve Schneider finally led the field under green and was able to open a lead right away while, Kevin Feck, Todd Dart, T.J. Smith, Eric Scribner, Mark Joski, Mike Mullen and Brian Drexler ran bunched behind. By lap 10, Schneider had opened a solid lead with Smith, Mullen and Feck in the top four. Mullen made his move into the runner up spot and started to eat into Schneiders lead. By the mid point, Mullen had chewed up about ½ of Schneider’s lead and was now about 6 car lengths behind and on the move. 2 time track champion, Marcus Yarie, had worked his way from the 17th starting spot into fourth, and then into third on lap 18. Yarie also started to close the equal gap to catch Mullen. Both Mullen and Yarie charged ahead and with 5 laps left were nose to tail with Schneider. Schneider continued his race long lead, as Yarie started to work on Mullen. The pass to the runner up spot took a couple laps to pull off, which allowed Schneider to gain a couple car length advantage again. Yarie continued his march and was right behind as the white flag dropped. Schneider was able to hold off the charge over the final lap and completed the bookends for the year, having won the season opening feature, and now the Fall Classic final feature. Yarie and Mullen flashed by to complete the top three. Feck, Smith and Drexler rounded out the top six.

The IMCA Stock Car headliner put a field of 25 cars on the grid with 2 time defending track champion, Travis Van Straten drawing the pole for the Classic event. It took several tries to get a lap in and each time Van Straten pulled into the lead. Once the green was out, Van Straten pulled away from the field, Several cautions during the race prevented a runaway. By the mid point of the race, Joe White was already hounding the leader when John Heinz, Jerry Winkler and Greg Wichman worked to the front. After a final restart on lap 19, White and Heinz battled for the runner up spot for a couple laps allowing Van Straten to gain a car length margin. Van Straten capped a strong season winning his 8th feature. Heinz took second after starting 15th. Winkler took third over White. Wichman was fifth and Kevin Hebbe rounded out the top six.

Randy LeMieux, Jr drew the pole for his first visit to the SpeedZone and made good use of the starting spot, wrestling the lead from Brian Bruechert after the first lap of the IMCA Sport Mod main was complete. A pair of cautions on lap 5 bunched the field but LeMieux was ready to set the pace once the green reappeared. Bruechert, Kenny Richards, Scott Besaw, Shawano Speedway track champion, Jordan Barkholtz, Wyatt Block and Jason Vandenberg bunched up in chase behind the leader, preventing every attempt to pull away over the rest of the non-stop race. From mid way, LeMieux had his hands full at the point with Richards and Barkholtz running side by side for second and several times alongside the leader. LeMieux was able to hold off each attempt and pulled off the exciting win in his first trip to the Zone. Richards and Barkholtz flashed by right behind the winner. Vandenberg ran his best race of the season securing fourth. Kyle Raddant and Block rounded out the top six spots.

The Dirt Devil event was the final feature of the Fall Classic weekend. Ben Meyerhofer grabbed the early lead with Kasey Gross, Clavin Stueck, Jordan Klemmer and Chris Maas right behind. The field started running 2 ands 3 wide right at the start and a lone caution slowed the pace on lap 8. Meyerhofer was still in command with Gross, Stueck, Brody Rivest and Brian Johnson next in line.

Rivest started to pick his way to the front and was joined by Shaun Bangart and Rodger Braun. Rivest pulled into the top spot on lap 11 with Bangart following on the next lap. For the final half of the race, it was a six car bunch for the lead. Bangart tried both inside and outside runs and was scored as the lead a couple times over the final laps, but Rivest was able to charge back. Meyerhofer, Stueck and Braun were also in the group. Rivest and Bangart were side by side for the final 3 laps and out of the final turn, Bangart made a final attempt to the inside as the pair crossed the line in a near photo finish. Rivest, in his first ever visit to the track, was awarded the win by inches, over the former 2 time track champion. Meyerhofer, Stueck, Braun and Mitchell Lee Fairbank flashed by to complete the top six.

The staff and management of the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway would like to THANK all of the drivers, crews, fans and sponsors for their support throughout the 2016 season. Despite all of the controversy during the season, the announcement was made prior to the features, that weekly racing will continue at the track in 2017, starting in early May.

SpeedZone results, September 2 2016

Oshkosh, September 2 – September ushers in changes in all we do each year. The unoffical end to summer, school starting, football, and the end of weekly racing programs.

A clear, cool day welcomed a nice crowd that watched a field of 160 cars compete in the final regular season racing program of the season Friday night at the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway. In the end, three drivers successfully defended 2015 titles by garnering the crown again in 2016. One added a second title to his career standings and a pair celebrated first career titles.

The Gold Star Racing Products Grand Nationals opened the feature portion of the big night. Jay Schaalma set the pace early with a tight field behind. Following a lap 3 caution, Larry Richards used the fast outside line to secure the elad and start to open a lead. Nick Schumacher, Tim Reichenberger, Kodiak Wirtz, Steve Weber and Jeff Richards were bunched through the mid point of the race. Over the final laps, Richards maintained the fast pace at the helm and took the checkered. Schumacher, Wirtz, Reichenberger, Jeff Richards and Webber rounded out the top six.

Entering the night, Larry was only 6 marks behind in the point chase, the battle was won by collecting his 3rd feature flag of the season, but the war was won by son, Jeff, who with his 5th place finish, garnered his second career SpeedZone track title by 4 points. The results now give each Richards team member, Larry, Jeff and Richard, 2 career titles in the division.

Brandon Ross set the pace for the Outlaw Chassis Street Stock feature for three laps before Adam Crapser powered into the lead using the outside line. Crapser opened a gap as the field sorted out behind. At the mid point, Crapser held a sizable lead with Paul Ambrosius, Jeff Jungwirth, Brady Baldry, Ross, Jeff Wicinsky and Lexii Ashcraft behind. A caution appeared on lap 11 for a spin and bunched the field on the leader. The leader did not look like a rookie on the restart, holding onto the outside line and holding off several challenges before a final caution slowed the race on lap 15. This time, it was Wicinsky that made the run from third to the inside of Crapser on the restart. Ambrosius was still in the hunt, and for a couple laps, it was a three bay battle which Wicinsky was finally able to take control of with 3 laps remaining. Wicinsky drove to his second straight feature win and had Crapser and Ambrosius tight behind at the line. Alex Crapser, edged Jungwirth for the fourth place finish, with Ashcraft rounding out the top six.

Defending champion, Steven Gawaresky, used an 8th place finish to secure his second straight division title.

The Automotive Supply Company IMCA Modifieds put 24 cars out of a tough 40 car field on the feature grid.. Joel Seegert took charge at the start with Rod Solem, Jeff Bodendorfer, Eric Scribner, Mitch Stankowski and Mike Wedelstadt bunched behind. The field never separated and the lead pack stayed close over the first half of the race. The pace seemed to pick up even more as the race moved to the second half, still caution free, Seegert was holding the top spot with Solem, Wedelstadt, Scribner, Jay Matthias, defending and current point leader, Marcus Yarie, andBodendorfer behind.

On lap 17, Solem and Wedelstadt were able to slip by Seegert and one lap later, the caution appeared and set up a furious challenge for the final 2 laps. Solem was now the leader, with Wedelstadt, Seegert, Yarie, Scribner and Matthis behind. Yarie was able to sneek inside Wedelstadt after the restart and moved to the inside of the leader as the pair picked up the white flag. The anticipated close finish was denied bt a last lap spin the forced the dash to end with Solem collecting his first career division feature win, in only his second race of the 2016 season. Yarie settled for the runner up finish, but also secured his second straight division track championship. Wedelstadt took third with Scribner, Stankowski and Brian Drexler rounding out the top six.

The Jim’s Auto Repair IMCA Stock cars put a full 26 car field on the track for their feature event with Dan Nelson claiming the lead at the start followed by Dion Wahl, Chase Parker, Karley Stadler, Harley Simon and David Hoerning. Hoerning made his way to the front and was able to take the elad on lap 7. By the mid point of the race, Hoerning was still in control with Jerry Winkler, defending and current point leader, Travis Van Straten, Jerry Kope, Kyle Frederick and Stadler bunched behind.

Three separate cautions on lap 13 kept things anxious at the front and when racing finally resumed, Winkle was able to make his way to the front and open a slight lead. Frederick pulled into the runner up spot on lap 16but could not close in on Winkler, keeping the field bunched for the second place finish. The final lap was also cut short by a late race caution, which allowed Winkler to take the easy ride to victory lane for the second time this season. Frederick took the runner up spot over Hoerning. Van Straten successfully defended his 2015 title finishing 4th and taking the 2016 campaign by 11 points over Winkler. Sadler finished a strong run holding off Aaron Stolp for the fifth place finish.

The Nolte’s Auto Repair and Towing sponsored IMCA Sport Mod division feature also had a stellar 25 car field on the grid with Grant Plonske leading the opening circuit before Brekken Kelinschmidt took command and opened a lead on the field. By lap 5, Kevin Bethke had moved into second and brought current point leader, Tom Schneider, and Lucas Lamberies along to the front for a tight battle fo the lead. The leaders started to swap positions as they pulled ahead of the field a bit. At the lap 10 mark, Kleinschmidt was still in control with Schneider, Bethke, Lamberies, Chris Budzban and Chase Randerson in persuit. On lap 14, Schneider was able top get to the inside and took over the top spot with Lamberies making a move wide outside to move into second. The first caution of the race appeared on lap 18 and set up a wild finish with Schneider still leading with Bethke, Lamberies, Budzban and Jeff Steenbergen set for the final dash.

On the restart, Lamberies dove from the outside of Bethke to the inside of Schneider entering turn one. The slide job attempt saw the car break lose and slide up into Schneider with contact between the two in turn 2. Both continued with the field storming behind. The side panel dropped off of Schneiders car on the back chute which the field avoided and Schneider collected the white flag. As the field made their way out of turn 2 for the final time, the caution was displayed for the debris, ending the final sprint. Schneider collected his 6th feature win of the season and claimed his first career division track title by 15 points over Bethke, who finished second in the race. Budzban took home the third place finish with Steenbergen in fourth. Cody Schroeder made his first appearance of 2016 and finished fifth with Randerson rounding out the top six.

The Ellington Mutual Insurance Dirt Devils ran the final feature of the night with Alvin Testroete leading the way for the first 4 laps before Kasey Gross moved into the top spot and started to opena lead. Jordan Klemmer took up second on lap 6 with current point leader, Chris Maas, moving into third. Shaun Bangart and Nate Lisowe made up the top five at half way. The lone caution of the race came out on lap 14 and erased the lead Gross had built. The field was bunched for the restarrt, and Maas moved into second, and inside Gross. The pair swapped back and forth over the final laps. Gross was leading entering the final lap, but Maas made a final push to retake the top spot and secure his third feature win of the season and along with it, his first career track title at the SpeedZone by 8 points over Gross, also finishing second in the race. Bangert and Lisowe were next with Mike Meier and Klemmer rounding out the top six.

KING OF THE RING TO LACROSSE; SCHEFFLER MEMORIAL TO MARS

Oshkosh, August 26- Friday was a cloudy, late summer day, but that helped track crews provide a smooth fast track for the invasion of the Corn Belt Clash Late Model- George Scheffler Memorial Race at the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway. Add to that, the final round of the IMCA Modified King of the Ring series and the Grand Nationals, a field of 109 cars, including 41, Corn Belt series late models, 47 IMCA Modifieds and 21 Grand National put on a great show.

The Gold Star Racing Products Grand Nationals put 21 cars on the grid with Brian Vinney, Jr grabbing the lead at the start with Tim Doehling, Rich Garb, Todd Ascherlen, Charlie Sancinati and Dan Sorce bunched behind. At the mid point of the event, Vinney continued to set the pace with Doehling relentless behind. Sancinati and Sorce were next in line with Jeff and Kenny Richards moving to the front.

The first caution appeared on lap 13, and Vinney resumed the lead on the restart. Doehling held the runner up spot with Kenny Richards moving into third. Larry Richards, Sancinati, Tim Reichenberger and Jeff Richards were right behind. Doehling was running tight to the inside and on lap 15 was able to get inside the leader in turn one and on the following lap, took over the lead. Kenny Richards followed and pressure to the inside as well. On the following circuit, Richards was able to make a run, getting the nose inside entering turn one. There was contact through the corner with Doehling spinning to the infield out of turn 2, bringing out the caution. Officials called Richards for the incident and put Doehing back at the point, and Richards retired to the pit.

Doehling was able to lead the final 3 laps with Larry Richards making a solid run on the outside, but Doehling was able to claim his first feature win of the season. Jeff Richards took third place with Reichenberger. Vinney, Jr and Sancinati flashing by to complete the top six.

The third leg of the IMCA Modified King of the Ring saw Marcus Yarie and Benji LaCrosse tied for the series lead. Both won their heat races, and started the main event in row 2, It was LaCrosse, that made the early move and took the lead after the opening lap with Dan Roedl, Yarie, Jeremy Christians, Tim Robbins and Brian Drexler behind. LaCrosse hooked mid way up the track and Roedl was running the outside line. The rest of the field was bunched2 and 3 wide behind. Yarie moved up to second on lap 4 and was just behind the leader. A lone caution for a spin appeared on lap 9, with LaCrosse and Yarie still leading the way. Roedl was holding third. Tim Lemirande was the quickest car in the field having moved from his 16th starting spot into fourth for the restart. Drexler and Christians were still in the top six.

With the green flag out for the balance of the 30 lap event, is was flat out throughout the field with LaCrosse and Yarie showing the way. The battle for third remained a tight bunch of cars with plenty of hard racing. By lap 20, the leaders had pulled away a bit with Lemirande running in third. Mike Mullen, Drexler, Roedl, Steve Schneider, Chad Bartel and Chris Engels made the group behind.

LaCrosse was running into lapped traffic and was able to move through while keeping Yarie at bay. That changed on lap 21, when Yarie suddenly pulled off the track to the infield in turn 3, when a belt broke on his car. All that was left for LaCrosse to do was continue to work traffic and he not only won his second race of the series and third of the season, but clinched the King of the Ring tile by completing the 30 lap contest well ahead of Lemirande, his hard charge secured the runner up spot. Mullen won the battle for third. Drexler collected fourth place with Schneider and Bartel rounding out the top six.

The Corn Belt – George Scheffler Memorial feature put 24 cars on the track, and once the green flag appeared, the series pulled off a non-stop 40 lap event for the second straight year.

It took the first 10 laps for the field to sort out a bit with Chris Simpson in the top spot by that time and Jimmy Mars in chase. Mars was able to wrestle the top spot away on lap 12 and when the leaders started to get into lapped traffic a couple laps later, it was in a tight 7 car pack. Despite having Simpson right behind, Mars was able to carefully pick his way through the pack. Once through, the field continued to string out. Mars was able to move where he needed to holding the top spot for the rest of the way. Simpson was able to make several runs, but not a serious challenge for the lead. The cars behind, made a race long battle for the next five spots.

Mars collected his second straight Scheffler Memorial check with Simpson taking runner up honors, Mitch MaGrath spent most of the last half of the race chasing the leaders in third and finished there, with Chad Simpson taking fourth place. Local drivers, Nick Anvelink and Jared Siefert, rounded out the top six places in the stellar field.

The final regular season race will take place on Championship night, this next Friday, September 2 at the SpeedZone. All six regular season divisions will crown their season champions with racing starting at 7 PM.
