Czaraparta Claims Seymour Modified Thriller
Czarapata also won Saturday night at Shawano Speedway. JJ Heinz debut a different car taking a strong second after a great battle with Fredrick who ended up third, point leader Rod Snellenberger was fourth and Jeremy Wiitala made a last lap pass for fifth. Snellenberger holds a slim 3 point lead over Heinz.
Fourteen-year-old rookie Lukas “Lead Foot” Lamberies scored a clean sweep in the IMCA Sport Mods.
Lukas Lamberies paced the 24 car starting field leading from the drop of the green. Several cautions put Rob Charapata and Russell Franks on the rear spoiler of Lamberies. On every restart Lamberies worked away from the field leaving a very dicey battle for second on back.
Lamberies kept the throttle down leading every lap picking up his first career feature win along with a heat race win earlier in the night scoring a clean sweep. Charapata placed a solid second, last weeks winner Aaron Muhle took home third, Cody Hokenstad was fourth and Tracy Wassenberg who started 24th completed the top five.
Brett Swedberg chased down and passed Wayne Block for the lead of the Fastrak Late Model feature on lap seven and never looked back picking up his fourth feature win of the season. Point leader Jeff Curtin took home second place pay, Ron Berna charged late to third, Block finish fourth and Jeff Wickersheim was fifth. The event went caution free.
The racing term “spin to win” held true for Jerry Winkler as he lost the handle on his Street Stock on lap 3 drawing a caution. The battle up front was fast and furious with Frank Groeschel and Justin Linder battling for the top spot with Linder taking the lead on lap 3. Jerry Kope carved his way through the pack and chased down Linder.
The duo battled hard for the lead bouncing off each other several times. Kope secured the top spot on lap 10. Linder’s solid run went south as his machine slowed and coasted to the infield. With only 2 laps remaining Jerry Winkler caught Kope and motored by for the win, his third of the season. Kope had to settle for second, Patty Winkler had another solid run placing third, Allan Schlueter also rallied from an early spin to fourth and point leader Jon Ashcraft came home fifth.
Calvin Stueck barely held off Jeff Behm to score his third feature win of the season. Behm in his first run of the season was second, point leader Tyler Hungerford placed third, Brad Prahl charged from row 8 to fourth and Brandon Kaye was fifth.
