Kirchner Conquers

WEST SALEM, Wis. — It was a difficult week in the race shop for Brent Kirchner and crew.

Last Saturday night Kirchner backed his sleek black No. 8 Chevrolet Impala Kwik Trip NASCAR Late Model into the wall during a heat race. He triumphantly returned to the track on Saturday night at the winner of the Coca-Cola 25.

“The car was a bit loose off the corners, but we’ll take it. We hope the fans had a great time tonight,” said Kirchner. “After backing into the wall during last week’s heat race, it took all week to repair the car. We actually just finished the repairs this morning, and I can’t thank Troy Rave (who drives Kirchner’s backup car) and the crew enough.”

Shawn Pfaff finished second ahead of Nate Clements, Matthew Henderson and Harley Jankowski.

Dan Gilster beat fast-qualifier Randy Humfeld to win the sportsman feature, while triple-duty driver Harley Jankowski won the thunderstox feature. John Olson took home the feature for the outlawz.
