Swan Swims At Slinger

SLINGER, Wis. — James Swan led the final 26 laps and held off heavy hitters Steve Rubeck, Zack Riddle, and Jeremy Miller to capture his first career Big 8 Late Model Series victory Sunday night in the Old Wisconsin King of the Highbanks 88 at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“The first couple of laps the car was really good then it started getting loose, then it would come right back to me and I would reel those guys in,” an exhausted Swan told the crowd while sitting on his car in victory lane following a hot night. “Then the yellow would come out and we had to go through the whole process again over and over and over, then finally when it counted I was there.”

Rubeck finished second ahead of Riddel, Miller and Bobby Wilberg in the 88-lap event on the quarter-mile oval.

Aaron Moyer won the Legends car feature.
