Siefert Slides To Luxemburg Victory
LUXEMBURG, Wis. – The slide-job is usually used when talking about sprint car racing. Jared Siefert seemed to use the IMCA Modified slide-job just as effectively Friday night at Luxemburg Speedway.
Siefert used the move on Jason Czarapata on the final corner of the 25-lap main event to pick up the win.
Scott Boulanger won his first career IMCA Sportmod Feature event on Friday night. Other feature winners included Brandon Czarapata (IMCA Stock Cars), Derek Moede (IMCA Hobby Stocks) and Keith Kickbusch (street stocks.)
Jared Siefert started on the pole for the 25 lap main event which would see the winner cash in on the $1,000 pay day. Siefert stayed in front of the field through some early cautions. Lance Arneson stayed in two behind Siefert and waited for a chance to pounce. Arneson moved inside of Siefert on several occasions but couldn’t make the pass. With all the fun at the front, Jason Czarapata moved into striking distance with five laps remaining.
Czarapata made a pass for the lead with three laps remaining but caution flag flew. Siefert got a great restart but Czarapata was able to make his move on top. Czarapata came to the white flag just in front of Siefert. Siefert stayed on the bottom until the backstretch. Siefert ran inside of Czarapata and performed a perfectly timed slide-job on Czarapata off of turn four. Siefert saw the checkers in front of Arneson who snuck passed Czarapata for second. Troy Jerovetz finished fourth with Eddie Muenster fifth.
Eric Malfroid opened up as the leader of the IMCA Stock Car feature. Luke Lemmens flew by on the second lap and led through a couple of early cautions. Rod Snellenberger would make his way to second and battle with Lemmens for the lead. The duo would tangle on lap 10 causing a caution. Rob Waechter inherited the lead but quickly fell victim to Evan Madden on the outside. Madden came under siege from Brandon Czarapata the next lap.
