Whitman Rallies For 141 Score
FRANCIS CREEK, Wis. – Johnny Whitman led the list of feature winners Saturday night at 141 Speedway.
Other feature winners included Dustin Loberger (IMCA Stock Cars), Brandon Long (IMCA Sportmods), Keith Kickbusch (Street Stocks), Shawn Schmitt (Grand Nationals) and Shaun Bangart (4-Cylinders)
R.M. VanPay seemed to have everyone in check during the IMCA Modified main event. VanPay would stay in charge until a duo behind him decided to put on a battle for the fans. With five laps remaining and everyone trying to run the bottom of the track, Whitman and Benji LaCrosse drove to the top of the track.
Not wanting to settle for fourth and fifth the duo took a chance that paid off in the end. Whitman and LaCrosse seemed to hook up, forming a draft that allowed them to passed everyone and focus on VanPay. Whitman charged to the lead with LaCrosse in tow with three laps remaining. LaCrosse tried multiple times to dethrone Whitman, but was denied after trying every way around the leader.
Whitman won the race in front of LaCrosse to earn his first win of the season. VanPay came in third with a strong fourth place finish for Tony Wedelstadt. Jared Siefert finished fifth.
