May 7, 2000; Slinger, WI - Brad Mueller got down to business early Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway as he took the lead early on 4 and then out dueled defending track champion Conrad Morgan over the final five laps to win the Als Auto Salvage, Champion Chicken, Pro Power Al Schill Jr. Memorial 77 lap late model feature.
The win was Muellers first at the high banked 1/4 mile oval in over a year and the Random Lake driver was noticeably excited following the win in the event held in honor of Schill Jr., a talented driver who tragically passed away last year.. This car is just a missile, stated Mueller from Victory Lane, Al Schill Jr. was a pretty good little friend of mine...he was a great kid.
Mueller quickly jumped to the lead from his fourth starting position and pulled away to a straightaway advantage while Toby Rott and Morgan moved into second and third. Morgan was able to move around Rott for second on lap 18 and began to track down Mueller for the lead. As the laps began to dwindle down Morgan was unable to make much of a dent in Muellers lead.
However, Mueller was able to maintain his advantage by working lapped traffic and
appeared on his way to a commanding win when the caution flew on lap 69 for Mike
Egans (Slinger) mechanical problems in turn three which allowed Morgan to close to
Muellers rear bumper for the final laps.
Rott finished the race with a strong run to take third place ahead of fast qualifier Charlie Thon Jr. and Jeff Holtz. In other Late Model action, Jerry Eckhardt (Johnson Creek)won the Consi race, Todd Thelen (Oconomowoc) won the Mac Tools Trophy Dash and Charlie Thon Jr. clocked fast time with a lap of 11.690 seconds.
