Brad Mueller (#89) held off the challenges of defending champion Conrad Morgan to win the Al Schill Jr. Memorial Late Model feature event!

The win was Mueller’s 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 Egan’s (Slinger) mechanical problems in turn three which allowed Morgan to close to Mueller’s rear bumper for the final laps.
On the restart, Mueller was able to hold off Morgan’s charge and when Morgan slipped slightly coming off turn two while racing to the white flag, Mueller was able to race to the win.

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.

Wheel to wheel!  Brian Holtz (#3) fended off a final passing attempt by Dale Prunty (#17) to win the Midwest Modified feature event.

Brian Holtz won the 30 lap Midwest modified feature in the same fashion as he pulled out to a big early lead before Chris Peterson and Dale Prunty tracked him down in lapped traffic.
Prunty pulled alongside Holtz on the final lap but Holtz was able to out power him while racing to checkered flag to take the win by a bumper.  Peterson finished a close third ahead of Steve Lurvey and Dave Wolf. Second generation driver Shane Lurvey took the 12 lap Midwest Modified Semi-Feature win. Dale Prunty (Allenton) was the fast qualifier with a lap of 12.422 seconds and Brian Holtz (Franklin) won the Eldorado Trailer Sales Trophy Dash.

Bill Shavlik took the lead on lap 14 of the 18 lap Slinger Stinger feature and then held off David Beck to take the win in the first Slinger Stinger Feature of the season.  Lyle Messinger finished third while Scott Ascher and Roger Schmid rounded out the top five. Eight lap Stinger heat races went to John Henning (Cedarburg) and Brad Hartman (North Lake) with Scott Ascher (Sussex) setting fast time at 13.493 seconds.
