No Doubt about it.... Morgan all the way in Labor Day Special at Slinger!
By Weyer / Margetta

September 3, 2000; Slinger, WI - Conrad Morgan led from start to finish in the Potawatomi Bingo Casino 100 and wore out the field enroot to his fifth late model feature win of the year Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.

"We've worked all year to get this car running, and tonight it finally ran right," said the six-time track champion from Victory Lane. Morgan started on the outside of the front row and quickly shot into the lead at the start as Dave Teske and Donavan Morgan fell in behind.  Charlie Thon Jr., David Prunty and Brad Mueller battled for positions behind the leaders as Lowell Bennett began to march forward from his tenth starting position. Teske ran strong early on and kept the second spot until lap 37 as Bennett began to slice his way through the top five.

After taking fifth from Prunty, Bennett used the outer groove to move around Thon, and D. Morgan within a few laps to take third.  Teske fell to Bennett's charge on lap 37 as C. Morgan held a twenty car length lead. Morgan was well out front of the field at the halfway point and he collected the $100
Mac Tools Bonus.  Morgan's lead was erased on lap 53 when sixth place running Thon spun in turn two, bringing out a caution.

Bennett was only able to keep up with C. Morgan for a few laps following the restart as D. Morgan raced with Prunty and Mueller who had worked their way back up into the top five. Morgan once again found his groove and pulled out to a 20 car length lead over Bennett as D. Morgan, Prunty, and Mueller began to string out amongst themselves.  Prunty muscled his way around D. Morgan
to take third on lap 82.  The top five remained unchanged as Morgan cruised to the win by nearly 20 car lengths over Bennett.  Prunty finished third ahead of D. Morgan and Mueller.  Fastest qualifier Rich Loch finished sixth and Eric Fransen was seventh.  John Zimmerman moved up from the back of the field to finish eighth while Teske and Thon rounded out the top ten.

John Mueller held off Mike Strupp and Jeff Holtz  to win the 35 lap late model semi-feature while D. Morgan was the winner of the dash. Loch was the fastest qualifier with a lap of 11.643 seconds.

Dale Prunty held off Chris Petersen to  win his second 30 lap Midwest Modified feature of the year.  The race got off to a rocky start as second row starter Dave Wolf broke loose on the first lap and collected John Kruschel while exiting turn two.   By the time the field finished piling into the incident on the backstretch, nine cars sustained damage to bring out the red flag. 

Among the casualties of the incident were the cars of point leader and fastest qualifier  Dennis Prunty and second place in points Brian Holtz.

Dan Miller held the lead over Ed Grober and Mike Held as the event was completely restarted.  Dale Prunty and Petersen followed in fourth and fifth.   Larry Reihbrandt, who earlier won the dash, experienced a mechanical problem and hit the wall in turn one to bring out the second caution.
Miller continued to lead on the restart as Prunty and Petersen worked their way around Grober and Held for second and third.  Prunty tracked down Miller by lap 12 and one lap later passed by on the outside to take the lead.

Prunty pulled away in the lead while Petersen eventually moved around Miller for second on lap 21.  Petersen made a charge for the lead as the laps wound down but came up short in his bid as Prunty took the victory.  Miller finished behind Petersen in third while Ron Weyer recovered from the first lap incident to finish fourth.   Held ran a strong race to finish fifth.
Aaron Bitzan won his first Slinger Stinger feature of his career in a close 14 lap event.   The top ten cars ran double file the whole race as positions were swapped with each lap.  Bitzan edged Dan Jung at the finish to score the win with Roger Schmid coming home third just ahead of Brad Hartman and Bill Shavlik.

Scott Ascher and Lyle Messinger each won a Slinger Stinger heat race and Paul Wagner was the fastest qualifier with a lap time of 13.518 seconds. The team of Dan and Mark Jung won the Team Cruiser event and Scott Mars was victorious in the Speedway Guest Cars. Chris Price was the Figure 8 race winner and Jim Schmittinger took top honors in the Spectator Races.
