Jon Stanbrough Wins Another One
SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. — Jon Stanbrough backed up Saturday’s win with his second-straight AMSOIL National Sprint Car victory in Sunday night’s 30-lap Feature at Angell Park Speedway, finding a hot streak for his Michael Dutcher Motorsports team.
The Avon, Ind., driver quickly broke the tie he forged with Rollie Beale for tenth on the all-time sprint car win list, as he now sits alone in 10th with 33 career wins.
Chase Stockon jumped from outside the front row and was strong early in the race, riding a year-long streak of consecutive top-ten finishes and looking for his second win of the season. He pulled away, as polesitter C.J. Leary dealt with pressure from Stanbrough and Bryan Clauson, who came from row two. Behind them, Dave Darland and Brady Bacon were having their own battle for fifth.
The race’s complexion took a major change after Jarett Andretti stopped on lap fifteen. On the restart, Stanbrough went after Leary and finally cleared him with a slide to his inside through turns one and two before clearing him into turn-three. Clauson came along to take third, as Stanbrough sliced into Stockon’s lead.
Things were getting good back farther in the pack as Chris Windom was making moves from 12th and Hunter Schuerenberg was digging out of a hole after moving to his back-up car for the Feature and being forced to start last. Stanbrough had trimmed Stockon’s lead and finally looked inside on lap 19.
Stockon stood up in the seat, attacking the stout Angell Park cushion even harder as Stanbrough kept the pressure up to his inside. On lap 22, Stockon hit it too hard, jumping the cushion in turn-two and barrelrolling to a stop. He was dazed but otherwise uninjured.
