|Defending track champion Conrad

event this evening. Morgan won the 60 lap Late Model contest and celebrated in
victory lane. Shown from the left are Leroy Meats representative Scott Hurst, Conrad
Morgan, track trophy queen Jennifer Lynn, and Leroy Meats representative Ron Rose.
Schill started on the pole and jumped out to the early lead over Jeff
Holtz while Morgan and Bennett raced their way into the top five by lap 18. Morgan used
the outer groove to take second from Holtz and then continued on the outside of the
speedway to track down Schill for the lead on lap 28. Morgan held the point at the halfway
point and collected the Mac Tools Halfway Challenge.
Morgan and Schill then ran nose-to-tail for the top spot while Bennett moved to third
place, dropping Holtz into a battle with Eric Fransen for fourth.
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 Morgans 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 Worlds 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.
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
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
