The duel!  With 11 track championships between them Conrad Morgan (#92) and Al Schill (#14) showed fans some great side by side racing action.

Schill made his move on lap 55 and edged inside of Morgan who battled back on the high side as the laps wound down. Morgan inched ahead to lead lap 57 as a caution flag for an incident involving David Prunty and Charlie Thon allowed Bennett to close on the lead duo to set up a three lap dash to the finish.

Schill got the better of Morgan on the restart and shot to the lead briefly before experiencing problems in turn four allowing Bennett and Holtz to get by. Bennett was only able to close to Morgan’s rear bumper as Morgan took the victory by a car length over Bennett and Holtz. Fransen and Schill rounded out the top five.

John Zimmerman (Markesan) turned fast time with a lap of 11.663 seconds, while Lowell Bennett (Neenah)took the checkered in the fast dash around the World’s fastest 1/4 Mile Oval. Jerry Eckhardt (Johnson Creek) known as the “King of the Semi “ took another Semi feature in his “orange blossom special” as he led from start to finish. Eckhardt took an early lead over Scott Schoeni (Slinger) and a hard charging Florian Wisinski (Greenfield) in the 30 lap event. Joe Gross (Milwaukee) claimed the 8 lap Late Model Consi Feature.

Keeping it in the family!  Dennis Prunty (#1) the defending Midwest Modified champion moves up to challenge his brother Dale (#17)

Last years defending Midwest modified champion Dennis Prunty initiated what looked like a family fued as he made numerous attempts on his brother Dale Prunty (Allenton)and Brian Holtz (Franklin) as the trio battled for the lead. Dale Prunty showed an early lead, and set the pace as Holtz tried to find away around.

Slower traffic made the race challenging as Dale after several attempts and a caution with 5 laps to go found himself in sights of his brother Dennis. Dennis made quick work of his brother and took the victory over Dale, and Holtz. In other Modified action, Shane Lurvey scored his second win of the season as he took the 12 lap Midwest Modified Semi-Feature, and Dale Prunty won the fast dash though Brian Holtz set fast time at 12.452 seconds..

In Slinger Stinger action David Beck (Butler)won the 18 lap event over Aaron Bitzan (Menomonee Falls). Beck had to survive a final restart with five laps to go after a late caution and held off Bitzan for the win. John Henning finished third ahead of Scott Ascher and Brad Hartman. The fast qualifier in the division was won with a lap of 13.604 seconds turned by John Henning. Brad Hartman and Scott Shambeau each one the eight lap Slinger Stinger heat races.

Mark Ritger took the 12 lap Figure 8 victory and the combination of Mark and Dan Fogal won the Team Cruiser race. Doug Loof of Cambellsport took the Spectator Eliminator race while the Speedway guest car feature was won by Brian Heinonen.
