By Kevin Bargender

Unity, WI. August 11 - David Baxter took home the feature victory for the A-Mod's Friday night at Spring Lake Speedway. Friday's races were sponsored by Mid-State Truck and included semi races along with all regular series.

Michael Truscott grabbed the victory for the B-Mod series. Truscott held strong through multiple restarts as cautions plagued the race early and often. Pole sitter Jake Smith had a strong showing in the feature but was involved in an incident with lap traffic that ended his night early. Kent Baxter took over the second position on the restart and finished in that spot. The top five finishers for the B-Mods starting with first, were: Truscott, Baxter, Josh Smith, Chad Selk and Derek Haas.

Scott Geiger picked up the feature win for the Super Stock series. Scott Geiger endured cautions that saw Mike Hince, Randy Spacek and Joel Peterson leave the track. The top five finishers starting with first, were: Scott Geiger, Kyle Helling, Josh Geiger, Peterson and Spacek.

Kyle Genett swept the night for the Street Stocks, winning both the heat and feature races. Pole sitter Jared Lindner held an early lead, but was challenged by both Kyle and Karl Genett. After a caution for a spin involving Alex Williams, Karl Genett took the lead on the following restart. Karl Genett could not maintain the first position as Kyle Genett charged to the front of the field and took a commanding lead on his way to victory. The top five finishers for the Street Stocks starting with first, were: Kyle Genett, Karl Genett, Lindner, Ralph Stark and Jeremy Flees.

David Baxter claimed the feature win for the A-Mod series. Baxter held a commanding lead over the field for most of the race even as cautions came out multiple times throughout the feature. Matt Leer used the restarts to his advantage and made his way through the field from the fifth position. Leer went on to finish second. The top five finishers for the A-Mods starting with first, were: Baxter, Leer, Chris Oertel, Paul Niznik and Pat Hoffman.

Jason Havel captured his third straight feature victory for the Pure Stock series Friday night at SLS. Havel battled pole sitter Dean Pronschinske for the lead early, but Pronschinske did not give up the lead easily as he kept Havel in the runner up position for a few laps. Havel cleared Pronschinske midway through the feature and held on for the victory. Tucker Quinn moved through the pack from the sixth position and passed by Pronschinske for the second position, but could not catch up to the dominant Havel. The top five finishers for the Pure Stocks starting with first, were: Havel, Quinn, Pronschinske, Pat Smith and Brent Hauge.

Casey Gross had another dominant showing as he captured another Hornet feature win. Gross started from the back of the pack for the second straight week, but ended the night in victory circle yet again. Mark Schoone led the pack early with Tyler Raab trailing close behind in the second position. Raab would leave the race later as sparks could be seen emitting from his car, bringing out a caution. During the restart, Schoone held the lead but was overtaken by Gross who earned his seventh feature victory of the season at Spring Lake.

Friday night also featured special street and non-street legal semi races. Rob Fort took his big rig to victory circle after making his way from the back of the pack in the street legal class. Kyle Lynn guided his Red International tractor-trailer to victory lane, but not before making the crown jump when he scraped the front stretch wall, sending sparks into the air and a tire into the turn one wall. After a caution, Lynn remained in the race with his battered tractor and passed by leader Shannon Williams, then took the victory in the non-street legal class.
