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.

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.

SpeedZone results August 19, 2016

Oshkosh, August 19 – A steady all morning rain combined with a very hot, humid, still night, and a hard working track crew, provided a very racey 1/3 mile oval for racing to resume Friday night at the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway, following 2 weeks off.

A field of 118 cars checked in for the activities that produced 2 repeat and 4 first time feature winners this season.

The Nolte’s Auto Repair and Towing IMCA Sport Mods were up first with 24 cars taking the green flag. Brekken Kleinschmidt took the early lead with the cars from mid pack quickly moving forward and bunching up behind. Point leader, Tom Schneider, made the move to the lead after a lone caution on lap 5, and opened a lead as the field sorted out behind for the next couple laps. On lap 9, Jeff Steenbergen and Wyatt Block broke into the top three and set out after Schneider. Kleinschmidt, Jeff Schmuhl, Colten Van Hierden and Scott Besaw were bunched behind. By lap 12, Schneider was joined at the front and the leaders were running through lapped traffic. Steenbergen was able to slip between cars and took the lead on lap 16 and was chased over the final 4 laps to claim his first SpeedZone feature win of the season. Schneider took runner up hnors with Schmuhl, Van Hierden, Block and Ryan Besaw rounding out the top six.

Nick Goemann led the opening circuit of the Gold Star Racing Product Grand National main with Tim Reichenberger taking over on lap 2. Tim Doehling, Larry Richards, Chase Solomon, Brian Gilles and Jeff Richards ran behind when the lone caution of the race flew on lap 6 for a 2 car crash in turn 1 & 2. Reichenberger continued to set the pace with Larry Richards moving to the outside to challenge. As the mid point passed, Richards pulled off the pass for the lead and set out to hide from the pack behind. Jeff Richards, Doehlng, Gilles and Brian Vinney Jr were right behind Reichenberger. Jeff Richards moved into the runner up spot on lap 14 and set out after dad, Larry, and quickly moved behind. It was a Richards show to the finish with several laps running side by side for the lead. Jeff finally inched ahead with 3 laps left and drove on to claim his second straight and third feature wins of the season. Doehling made the podium finish in third with Gilles, Vinney and Reichenberger rounding out the top six.

The Automotive Supply Company IMCA Modifieds also put a full 24 car field on the grid. Kevin Feck grabbed the top spot on the start and led through several cautions over the first 8 laps. After the lap 8 restart, Feck was till in command with Steve Schneider taking over second from Tim Robbins. Point leader, Marcus Yarie moved from mid pack into fourth. Mike Wedelstadt and Ed Lemay were right behind. Feck set a furious pace and held a couple length lead through the mid point of the race on Schneider. The cars behind were running in a tight pack. Feck was still holding the lead margin when a red flag for a rollover appeared on lap 16. The driver was OK and this bunched the entire field for the final 4 lap dash.

Feck was able to with stand the pressure from Schneider and Yarie and drove to collect his first career feature victory. Kenny Richards made an impressable first time showing in the top division, coming in to finish 4th. Chad Bartel made another strong run from the back of the field to take fifth and Robbins was able to round out the top six spots.

The Outlaw Chassis Street Stock feature was a fast and furious event from start to finish.

Adam Crapser started outside pole and settled right into a groove running mid track. Jeff Wicinsky took up second and was running the inside of the track and Alex Crapser pulled right up behind in third. The trio opened a lead on the field over the first half of the race with Adam running his line to perfection. Jesse Krahn, point leader, Steve Gawaresky, Frank Knaus and Jeff Jungwirth were in a battle of their own a bit behind the leaders.

After half way, the pressure was on up front as Wicinsky was starting to pressure the leader hard on the inside, and they were catching the slower cars at the rear of the pack. The second group of cars were also starting to close in on the lead pack. On lap 15, Wicinsky was getting to the inside of the leader, when lapped cars got in the mix. On the following lap, out of turn 4, Adam had his momentum altered when he ran up behind a lapped car which allowed Wicinsky to get his best run at the lead, only to have a spin bring out the first caution of the race and put Crapser back at the point. Another caution on the restart kept the leaders the same, although Wicinsky was looking to move to the point as soon as he could. On the final restart on lap18, Wicinsky was able to move to the point, but on the next lap, in turn one, Adam again pulled even on the outside and brother, Alex, pulled even on the inside, making a three wide run out of the turn for the lead. Wicinsky was able to outrun the pair into turn three and collect the white flag. Over the final lap, Adam kept the pressure on the outside but Wicinsky was up to the final run and took his first feature win of the season with Adam Crapser finishing the strong run taking second. Alex Crapser took third with Krahn, Knaus and Jungwirth rounding out the top six.

The Jim’s Auto Repair IMCA Stock Cars were up to do battle with Corey Wegner leading the opening circuit before Kevin Hebbe moved to the point for 2 laps. Aaron Stolp hooked up on the outside from mid pack and took over the lead on lap 5. David Hoerning pulled into the runner up spot on the next lap with point leader, Travis Van Straten, making his way to the front from mid pack, using the inside line along with Jerry Winkler. Stolp and Hoerning swapped the lead for a couple laps with Stolp again settling into the top spot on lap 9 with Van Straten taking over second. One lap later, Van Straten secured the top spot and 2 laps later, Winkler passed Stolp to take the runner up spot and pull up on the leader.

For the final 7 laps, Winkler tried several times to pull alongside, but could not pull it off. Van Straten was up to challenge and drove off to secure his 7th feature win of the season. Winkler took second with Stolp ending up in third. Hebbe completed his strongest runoff the summer, putting his car into the top 4. Jerry Kope ran with the leaders over the final half of the race and took fifth with Wegner rounding out the top six.

Jordan Klemmer settled into the lead at the start of the Ellington Mutual Insurance Dirt Devil night cap. By lap 5, Chris Maas, Kasey Gross and Cody Pankow were grouped behind. Maas worked on the leader and finally pulled into the lead on lap 11. Pankow pulled off the pass on Gross and for four laps, the leaders ran side by side for the top spot with Pankow finally taking over the lead with 5 laps left. Taylor Becher was making a late race run the leaders, but had his race cut short when his car erupted in flames on lap l8, bringing out the red flag, the only slow down of the race. He was OK but car was toasted pretty well. Pankow restarted and drove off to collect his first feature win of the year here while the battle for second came down to the finish line with Gross taking the advantage over Maas. Wes Langwitz, Klemmer and Seth Hickman rounded out the top six.

Next Friday night, the SpeedZone will play host to the 8th Annual George Scheffler Memorial race which will feature the Corn Belt Clash Late Models. The big night will also feature the final round of the IMCA Modified King of the Ring series. The Grand Nationals will also be part of the program. Racing will start at 7 PM.

SpeedZone results July 29

Oshkosh, July 29- In a stark opposite in the weather from a week ago, Knaus Cheese/Weyauwega Star Dairy presented the annual Walk of Fame night at the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway under a cloudy, cool breezy night. 117 cars checked in to take on a smooth, shiny 1/3 mile track that saw 5 divisions see repeat winners and one a first career feature flag.

The 2016 Walk of Fame class was inducted at intermission and included, Denny Hughes, Jerry “Medina” Smith, Jerry Krueger and Gene Wheeler.

It was the Outlaw Chassis Street Stock division up first with Brandon Ross setting the pace for the opening three circuits. Jeff Wicinsky started in the fourth row and used the outside line to move alongside the leader and into the top spot on lap 4. Wicinsky was forced to pit on lap 7 which turned the lead over to Lexii Ashcraft. A lone caution one lap later bunched the field with Dan Knaus, Jeff Jungwirth, Jason Fairbank and Jesse Krahn behind. On the restart, Jungwirth slipped inside and took over the runner up spot and pulled up on Ashcraft. Ashcraft was able to hold off Jungwirth and then open a lead over the final half of the race to collect her second feature win of the season. Jungwirth took runner up honors. Point leader, Steve Gawaresky, worked his way into third with 5 laps remaining but could not chase down Jungwirth, taking third. Dan Knaus, Fairbank and Frank Knaus rounded out the top six positions.

Cory Wegner set the opening lap pace for the Jim’s Auto Repair IMCA Stock Cars with Jerry Kope able to take over the lead after a lap 2 restart. Travis Van Straten, Aaron Stolp and Chase Parker were making their way through the tight pack and on lap 6, Van Straten found his way into the top spot and started to open a lead. Stolp and Kope ran for second with Jerry Winkle finally breaking out of the pack and closed the gap and took over the runner up spot on lap 16. A final caution appeared on lap 17, erasing Van Stratens lead and giving Winkler a shot at a second straight victory. Van Straten was up to the task after the final restart and took off to collect his 6th feature win of the season. Winkler was right behind in second with Stolp, Kope, David Hoerning and Parker rounding out the top six finishers.

After an opening lap caution, Mitch Stankowski grabbed the lead in the Automotive Supply Company IMCA Modified feature, setting the pace for the first 3 laps before Brian Crapser took charge before a caution slowed the field.

On the restart, Chad Bartel took the outside route and took the lead. Steve Schneider moved into the runner up spot on lap 9 and set out to catch the leader. Dan Roedl, Kevin Baldry, Mike Wedelstadt, Marcus Yarie and Ed Lemay were working through traffic towards the front. A spin on lap 18 bunched the field for a 2 lap dash. Bartel was able to hold off the late charge from Schneider to take his second feature win of the season here. Schneider, Roedl and Crapser took the top 4 places with point leader, Yarie, able to take fifth ahead of Stankowski to round out the top six.

Jason Ebert took control of the Nolte’s Auto Repair and Towing IMCA Sport Mod main event and quickly had point leader, Tom Schneider, work from mid pack through tight traffic into the runner up spot. Tim Sheppard, Kevin Bethke and Scott Besaw were right behind. A lap 8 caution slowed the cautious pace of the field with Ebert still in control. Schneider remained right behind after the restart with Bethke, Adam Peschek, Besaw and Brock Saunders in line. Schneider was relentless in trying to force an Ebert miscue, and finally took a different approach and dipped inside at the s/f line on lap 15 and eased into the lead in turn one. AS final restart on lap 16 allowed Schneider to pull away from the field as a dog fight for second lasted to the finish. Ryan Besaw moved up over the final laps to take second place along with Jason Vandenberg, making a solid run on the outside to take the third place finish, his best of the season. Bethke, Ebert and Peschek rounded out the top six. The win for Schneider allowed him to put his own icing on his birthday cake with his fifth win of the year.

The Gold Star Racing Products Grand National feature took the green with Brian Henry taking charge from the pole with Tim Reichenberger, Rich Garb, Tim Doehling, Jeff Richards and Brian Vinney, Jr behind. Henry hugged the inside line with Garb and Richards back just a bit at the mid point. Richards was now in second and right behind the leader with Garb taking the outside line. The lone caution of the race appears on lap 17 and set up a battle to the finish. Henry lined up in first for the restart with Richards taking the inside which put Garb outside. Vinney, Doehling and Don Schumacher were behind. On the final green, Richards and Garb split to go around the leader and Garb was scored in first on the next lap. Richards was able to pull ahead and Garb continued to attack from the outside. At the line, Richards took his second feature flag of the season with Garb just off the pace taking second. Vinney took third place honors with Henry, Doehling and Larry Richards rounding out the top six.

Jordan Klemmer led the opening lap of the Ellington Mutual Insurance Dirt Devil feature with Taylor Becher taking over on the second lap. Chris Maas and Cody Pankow moved into 2nd and 3rd and started to close the gap on the leader, Wes Lungwitz took fourth by the mid point and the trio spent the next few laps pulling up on Becher. Becher maintained the lead while the next three were right behind by Lap 12. Lungwitz tried several times to get inside of the leader and on the final lap, clipped a turn one tire, which knocked him out of contention and gave Pankow and Maas a final run, but Becher held off the charge to claim his first career feature win. Pankow took second ahead of Maas. Mitchell Fairbank took fourth, Lugwitz pulled back in line to finish 5th and Klemmer rounded out the top six.

There will be no racing at the SpeedZone next week, August 5th, because of the Winnebago County Fair. Racing will return on Friday night, August 12 with a full six division program starting at 7 PM.

SpeedZone results July 22

Oshkosh, July 22- A very hot, humid day greeted drivers and fans to the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway Friday night for a special night of racing featuring the IRA Outlaw Sprint Cars and the second leg of the 2016 King of the Ring IMCA Modified series. The IMCA Sport Mods and Stock Cars were also part of the big program.

The Jim’s Auto Repair IMCA Stock Cars started the feature portion of the program with Chris Lowenhagen grabbing the lead with Cory Wegner, Kerry Kope, David Hoerning, Harley Simon, Aaron Stolp and John Heinz bunched behind. A back stretch mix up on lap 7 at the front of the field sent Simon into a wild barrel roll into turn three. The car spun over 6 times times with a flash fire under the back of the car. The car ended up on the wheels in turn 3. Simon was able to climb out of the wrecked machine shaken up but OK.

Lowenhagen continued to set the pace after the restart but Jerry Winkler made a charge and one lap later was in the top spot. Winkler wasted no time opening a lead over the final half of the race to collect his first ever division feature at his home track. The battle for the runner up spot and back was tight the rest of the way with Travis Van Straten able to secure the runner up spot. Heinz took third with Lowenhagen ending a solid run taking fourth place. Wegner and Stolp rounded out the top six.

The second leg of the IMCA Modified King of the Ring series took the green with 20 cars on the grid. Mike Wedelstadt started on the front row and quickly took command of the race. Following a quick lap 2 caution, Wedelstadt was chased by Paul Parker, Benji LaCrosse, Marcus Yarie, Brian Drexler and Steve Schneider.

A debris caution bunched the field again on lap 10, and the field ran the next 15 laps before a final amber on lap 15. During that span, Wedelstadt was on cruise in front leaving a tight battle for the next five spots. Parker, LaCrosse, Yarie, Drexler, Jeremy Christians and Dan Roedl ran in a bunch setting up a five lap sprint following the final restart.

Wedelstadt was able to maintain a slight lead over the final 5 laps to secure his first feature win of the season. Yarie took the runner up finish over LaCrosse. Parker, Jay Matthias and Christians rounded out the top six.

The Nolte’s Auto Repair and Towing IMCA Spot Mods were the final event of the evening with Tim Sheppard leading the opening lap before a caution regrouped the field. Bernie Miller claimed the top spot after the restart and was able to open a lead on the field before a second caution on lap 6. Kevin Bethke moved in the runner up spot after the restart and pressured the leader until a slight slip in turn 2 on lap 12, open a gap enough for Bethke to sneak inside and take over the lead entering turn 3. Colten Van Hierden was right behind Miller with Jeff Schmuhl, Sheppard and Brekken Kleinschmidt right behind. The activity at the front was ended when a final caution on lap 14, ended the race due to curfew. Bethke claimed his first feature win here since May 13, 2011. Miller took the runner up spot with Van Hierden, Schmuhl, Kleinschmidt and Ryan Besaw rounding out the top six positions,

In the IRA 50th Anniversary main event, Brad Loyet took over the lead on lap 9 from Scott Neitzel and despite 2 quick cautions in the race, held off a late race charge by Mike Reinke to capture the victory.

A full regular 6 division program will return to the SpeedZone this coming Friday Night, July 29 with racing at 7 PM.

SpeedZone results July 15

Oshkosh, July 15- The Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway presented the Christmas in July event sponsored by Hobbytown USA Friday night. Santa attended the program and had special presents for the kids while the drivers earned their rewards ranging from three first time winners up to 5 wins for the year.

The Gold Star Racing Products Grand Nations took the track first with Terry Van Roy leading the first pair of laps before suddenly pulling out of the contest, turning the top spot over to Larry Richards. Derek Schrauth pulled into the runner up spot on lap 5 with Don Schumacher, Jeff Richards, and Brian Vinney,Jr in order behind. Schrauth closed in on the leader by lap 10 and for the next 5 laps ran side by side in a great battle for the lead. Schrauth was finally able to secure the top spot and held off a late Richards charge to secure not only his first career feature win, but, in over 20 years of racing in various divisions, his first win period. Larry and Jeff Richards finished second and third and are tied for the division point lead following the nights action. Vinney scored fourth with Rich Garb and Schumacher rounding out the top six.

Brandon Ross led the opening circuit of the Outlaw Chassis Street Stock main event with Jeff Wicinsky taking over the top spot on lap 2. Keremy Kemnetz, Lexii Ashcraft, Clint Evans and Steve Gawaresky were in line by lap 5. One lap later, the first caution appeared when Ashcrafts mount erupted in flames in turn three and four and stopped on the front chute. There were no injuries but she was parked for the rest of the race.

On the restart, Gawaresky pulled into the runner up spot and 3 laps later was able to take over the lead and start to open a lead. After and 8 hr trip from Ohio, got him to the track too late for the heats, and then starting the race in 22nd spot, Jesse Krahn made his way into third on lap 12 and second on lap 14, facing a several car length gap to catch the leader. A spin on the next lap gave Krahn a special Christmas gift, putting him right behind Gawaresky for the final 5 lap dash to the finish. Gawaresky was able to open a slight lead after the restart, but Krahn continued his quest, and attempted a run to the inside as the white flag appeared, only to be fought off. Entering turn one on the final lap, Krahn was able to get inside, dropping back again entering turn three. But a final push off the final corner gave him enough momentum to steal the victory from Gawaresky at the line, for his first feature win of the season. Gawaresky, the current pint leader, settled for second with Frank Knaus making a final push to take third. Kemnetz, Alex Crapser and Wicinski rounded out the top six.

After an opening lap caution, Mike Mueller grabbed the lead in the Automotive Supply Company IMCA Modified feature and proceeded to open a lead on the field until a final caution on lap 8 bunched the field. T.J. Smith Ed Lemay, Tim Lemirande, Sean Jerovetz and Benji LaCrosse were in line for the restart.

Mueller continued to set the pace with LaCrosse continuing to run the outside line and move into the runner up spot on lap 14, after starting the race in 23rd. A pair of laps later, LaCrosse took control and ran off to collect his second feature win of the season and also become the first repeat division feature winner this season. Mueller completed his best run of the season taking second with Lemirande taking third and Smith fourth. Lemay took fifth with Brain Drexler rounding out the top six.

A field of 24 cars started the Jim’s Auto Repair IMCA Stock Car main event with Jerry Kope setting the pace through a couple cautions during the first 7 laps. Karly Stadler, Travis Van Straten, Aaron Stolp and Jerry Winkler were behind for the lap 8 restart. Van Straten was able to find his way to the lead after the restart and opened a bit of a lead as Joe White moved in the runner up spot. For the last half of the race, Van Straten was able to hold the lead after repeated charges fy White. With 5 laps left, White was setting up for a final dash , running the outside line to perfection and pulling event with Van Straten several times. As the pair exited turn 4 for the white flag, White was again dead even, but Van Straten was still scored as the leader. The final lap showdown would not decide the race, however, as a spin brought out a caution just after the white flag ending the contest and preserving Van Stratens 5th feature win of the season. White settled for the runner up finish with Winkler taking third. John Heinz made his trip pay off with a strong fourth place run with Kope taking fifth and Barry Van Straten, making his first run of the season, finishing 6th.

Current Nolte’s Auto Repair and Towing IMCA Sport Mod point leader, Tom Schneider, started the feature event 10th on the grid and the green flag saw him take to the far outside line and the route took him to the lead on the opening lap. A couple early race cautions kept Tim Sheppard, Scott Besaw, Bernie Miller, Dennis Schultz and Jason Ebert tight behind. After a final restart on lap 8, Schneider was able to open a lead and despite Sheppard making a couple runs at him, was able to drive off with his 4th feature win of the season. Sheppard and Besaw were spaced out behind. T good battle mid pack saw Jeff Schmuhl take the fourth place finish with Lucas Lamberies and Ebert round out the top six.

The Ellington Mutual Insurance Company Dirt Devils saw Taylor Becher take the lead for the first 2 laps before Mitchell Fairbank took control. Kasey Gross moved into second on lap 6 and Chris Maas followed into third. The top three started to open a gap on the rest of the field. Gross tried several attempts to shake Fairbank lose from the inside line, but would not succeed. Maas tried several time to pass both on the outside, but could not make that line work enough o pay off. Fairbank outlasted the dual threat and collected his first ever SpeedZone feature win. Gross and Mass were right behind. Becher took fourth with Wes Lungwitz and Seth Hickman rounding out the top six.

This next week, July 22, will see Bergstrom Automotive sponsor the IRA Outlaw Sprint Cars in what will be their only SpeedZone appearance in 2016. The second round of the IMCA Modified King of the Ring series will also be on track. The IMCA Sport Mods and IMCA Stock Cars are also part of the big night.
