Morgan and Al Schill split Coca-Cola features!
August 20, 2000; Slinger, WI - Conrad Morgan and Al Schill split each of the Coca-Cola twin 50 lap late model features Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway and Lowell Bennett was crowned the overall winner of the Coca-Cola Triple Crown Classic.
John Zimmerman raced out to the early advantage in the opening 50 lap late model feature with Todd Thelen following while Conrad Morgan, Al Schill and Donavan Morgan battled for third. Zimmerman and Thelen stretched out their lead slightly as Conrad broke free from the pack and began to track down the leaders. Thelen fell to Morgans charge on lap 14 as the six-time Slinger champion had his car working well in the outer groove.
The first and only caution of the event flew on lap 16 when Jeff Holtz broke loose momentarily with a little help and the chain reaction slowdown behind him collected the cars of Chris Ratajczyk and Scott Schoeni. Zimmerman maintained his lead on the restart with Morgan right on his rear bumper while Thelen, Schill, and Donavan Morgan raced for position behind the leaders. Zimmerman held off Morgan to lead at the halfway mark and claim the $200.00 Mac Tools bonus but soon found himself in a side-by-side battle for the lead by lap 29. Morgan once again used the outside to take the lead on lap 31, forcing Zimmerman to run in the inside groove.
Once by, Morgan was able to maintain the lead as Zimmerman could close entering the turns but the back of his car would kick loose exiting the corners, allowing Morgan to pull away slightly. Zimmerman had one last shot at the win on the final lap when Morgan approached lapped traffic in turn four however his effort came up short as Morgan took the win by 3/4th of a car length and won the first 50 lap event. Schill finished third just ahead of Donavan Morgan and Rich Loch.
Randy Schuler led the opening laps of the second 50 lap feature event from his front row starting spot as a tightly bunched pack of cars maneuvered for position behind. David Prunty emerged from the snarl of cars up front to take the lead on lap eight with Brad Mueller and Schill falling in line behind in second and third. Prunty kept the lead at the halfway point as Schill charged by Mueller and into second. Schill immediately closed the gap between himself and Prunty and took the top spot while working through lapped traffic on lap 27.
Lowell Bennett moved up from deep in the field to enter the top five on lap 41 as Schill continued to lead over Prunty, Mueller, and Donavan Morgan. Bennett proved to be the fastest car on the track as the laps wound down and he worked the inside groove to advance positions over the final five laps. Schill held off Prunty for the win with Bennett nipping Mueller for third and Conrad Morgan edging his son Donavan for fifth.
Lowell Bennett leading the points in the second round of the Coca Cola Series managed a third place finish in round three enabling him to win the overall title over Brad Mueller and David Prunty. Al Schill finished fourth while Rich Loch took the fifth place finish with Conrad Morgan to follow in the Coca Cola Classic points.
Larry Reihbrandt scored his first Midwest Modified feature win of the season in a wild 30 lap event. Dave Wolf took the lead at the drop of the green flag and was out front when the first caution appeared on lap 23 for Tom Kings spin in turn two. Wolf maintained a lead over Lenny Gallenberg III and Reihbrandt on the restart as Kevin Kenealy lost a tire in turn four to produce the caution flag again. Gallenberg moved inside of Wolf on the restart which forced Wolf high and allowed Reihbrandt, Chris Petersen, and Brian Holtz to also get by.
It was determined that Gallenberg jumped the restart and he was given the black flag handing the lead to Reihbrandt. Reihbrandt took the win over Holtz who edged him for the top spot and Petersen ended up in third. Ron Weyer ran a strong race to finish fourth ahead of point leader Dennis Prunty who was driving his brother Dales car after experiencing engine problems following qualifying . In other Modified action the Eldorado Trailer Sales Modified trophy dash was won by last weeks feature winner Al Keppert.
David Beck lead the Slinger Stinger feature from the start until the top six cars made a three wide run at him but held on to purse the $20.00 A.P.C. bonus for leading the ½ way lap of the feature. Roger Schmid took the lead with just 2 laps to go in his machine over Beck to score his third feature win of the season and earn the $75.00 bonus monies. Mike Graczkowski finished third, Scott Ascher took fourth spot and Aaron Bitzen to follow. The Stinger heats were won by Brad Hartman and Mike Graczkowski.
