Koehler Tops Lemmens At Thunderhill
STURGEON BAY, Wis. – Bret Koehler took the lead on lap 10 and kept the competition in his rear view scoring the win in the IMCA Stock Cars at Thunderhill Raceway on Saturday night.
Other feature winners were Dan Ratajczak (IMCA Modified), Bernie Reinhardt (IMCA Sport Mod), Scott Boulanger (IMCA Hobby Stock) and Brandon Peterson (Street Stock).
A broken thumb didn’t stop Jamie Suchocki from pacing the first nine laps of the Bull Pen Bar & Grill IMCA Stock Car main. Bret Koehler kept pace and stalked Suchocki the first half of the race. As the midway flags flew Koehler made his move sneaking under Suchocki and to the lead. Luke Lemmens and Dave Bouche made a late race charge on Koehler.
Lemmens got to the leaders back bumper that’s as far as he’d get with Koehler scoring an exciting win. Lemmens second, Bouche took third and took over the point lead, Tom Brumlic and John Anschutz completed the top five.
Bernie Reinhardt brought home the top spot in the IMCA Sport Mods with his first win of the season.
Rick LeMieux and Martin Kelsey battle for the lead early on before defending LaVine’s Ice IMCA Sport Mod champion Bernie Reinhardt slipped around Kelsey for the lead. Rick LeMieux suffered a flat tire sending cars scattering ending the night for co-point leader Kelsy Hayes who was caught up in the wreck.
