Havel Charges to Victory

Jason Havel started in the middle of the pack Friday night at SLS but maneuvered his way through the field to take the caution filled feature victory in the pure stock class.

Pole sitter Dave Gauger took an early lead, but two cautions prevented him from driving away with a quick victory. A battle for the second spot contributed to the second caution.

Through the cautions Havel continued to push through the field and remain unscathed. Havel moved into the runner-up position after another restart and began to close in on the leader as a third caution brought the field back together.

Gauger took an early lead on the third restart but was racing nose to tail with Havel as the two drivers began to use crossover passes to swap the lead back-and-forth. After a few laps, Havel secured the top spot and drove away for the feature win.

The top five finishers for the Pure Stock class were: Havel, Gauger, Andrew Hanson, Cody Kummer and Leslie Leu.

Other notable finishes: Pat Smith (finished seventh, started 19th), John Stegner (finished ninth, started 18th) and Dale Louze (finished 10th, started 20th).

Iverson Shows Speed and Consistency in Win

Calvin Iverson showed the fans Friday night at SLS how dominant his car could be as he drove to victory in a caution shortened B-Mod class feature race.

Iverson started on the pole and held and early lead over Chad Selk and Mike Widmann as cautions seemed to be coming out every two laps for accidents in the pack.

The pole sitter showed great acceleration on restarts and continued to dominate over the field.
A pile up in the back-stretch midway through the feature brought out a third caution that lasted several minutes as track personnel cleaned up debris and towed cars to the pits.

As drivers pushed for higher positions on the restart and into the late stages of the race, Andy Karl, who was in the third position, spun on the last lap and the feature ended under caution.

The top five finishers for the B-Mod class were: Iverson, Selk, JD Ford, David Baxter and Widmann.
Daniel Bargender earned the hard-charger award for finishing 10th after starting 23rd.

Stolp Outlasts Field for Feature Win

Aaron Stolp picked up the Street Stock feature win Friday night at SLS in a race that featured some notably competitive racing as the drivers competed for the $1000 feature prize.

Kyle Genett took an early lead from pole sitter Karl Knopps but was soon overtaken by Stolp.

After a caution, Stolp began to gain a sizeable lead over the pack and Genett fell to fourth. As Genett competed for third, he appeared to make contact with the 12 of Cody Kummer.

Genett passed by Kummer in turn four, but Kummer came back and appeared to get the nose of his car into the left rear quarter-panel of Genett in turn one. Genett proceeded to spin and flip his car over, landing on his roof before flipping back onto his wheels. Genett was deemed healthy by track officials but his night came to an end as his car was totaled from the incident. Kummer also left the feature during the caution.

After the race resumed, Stolp cruised to victory as the field filed in behind him.

The top five finishers for the Street Stocks were: Stolp, Knopps, Michael Carter, Brett Wenzel and Paul Diefenthaler.

Other notable finishes: Parker Anderson (finished eighth, started 20th) and Erick Zwirschitz (finished ninth, started 19th).

Angst Uses Restart to Win Feature

Unity – With $1000 on the line for the winner of the Modified feature, drivers were pushing the limits of their cars to win the grand prize Friday night at Spring Lake Speedway.

Josh Angst started 11th but took his car to the front and never flinched as he claimed the grand prize and ended the night in victory circle.

Steve Lavasseur took the pole position, but it was Grant Southworth jumping out for an early lead.
The 44 of Jared Loos quickly made his way through the field from the seventh position and passed by Southworth on the high side to grab the lead. Angst also made his way through the pack and into the top three.

A pile up in turn three brought out a caution and an opportunity for Angst to grab the lead. Angst used the restart to help bolt into the lead and ran a fast and consistent race the rest of the way.

Towards the end of the feature, Jake Smith overtook Loos for the runner-up position.

The top five finishers for Modifieds were: Angst, Smith, Loos, Southworth and Lavasseur.
Other notable finishes: Pat Hoffman (finished sixth, started 20th) and Cole Varsho (finished seventh, started 14th).

Kisling Dominant in Feature Victory

After finishing third in a heat race, Shane Kisling came back and took over the Super Stock feature and set the pace for the field on his way to the race win Friday night at SLS.

Pole sitter Scott Lawrence took an early lead and held down the top spot before Kisling and Randy Spacek began a push to take first.

After a caution, Kisling used the low side of the track in turn four to take the lead from Lawrence.
As Lawrence battled back for the lead, he hit an infield tire in turn four. Lawrence saved his car from spinning but lost many spots in the process.

As Kisling began to build a comfortable lead, Curt Myers and Randy Spacek battled for the second spot. Spacek used the high side to secure the runner-up position in the closing laps.

The top five finishers for the Super Stocks were: Kisling, Spacek, Myers, Tommy Richards and Rich Bishop.

Shoone Endures Mayhem to take Feature Win

Mark Schoone drove his car like a man on a mission as he took the 21S to victory lane for the first time this season at SLS on Friday night in the Hornet feature race.

Schoone started 14th but did not let the adversity deter him as he passed other drivers and made his way to the front.

Chad Halterman started on the pole and held the position temporarily until he lost a tire and left the race under caution. Chad Halterman returned before the restart but was sent to the back of the field.

Casey Gross assumed the lead on the restart and held a firm lead until Jake Halterman began jockeying for the lead. As Jake Halterman was battling Gross for the lead, Jason Junker passed by both drivers and took the top spot.
After a second caution sent Gross to the back of the pack, Junker resumed the lead and began to pull away from Jake Halterman.

The 4r of Tyler Raab moved into the third position and was battling Derek Krumrie for the position midway through the feature. Raab spun on the front stretch and appeared to get T-boned by Kumrie in a hard collision.

A long cleanup ensued as both driver’s nights ended and both cars received considerable damage, but both drivers appeared to be unscathed from the wreckage.

Schoone took the lead from Junker after the restart and raced his way to victory circle.

The top five finishers for the Hornets were: Schoone, Al Cottrell, Jake Halterman, Jason Helgesan and Armond Love.

Another notable finish, Anthony Everard finished seventh after starting 18th.
