By Weyer / Margetta

June 13, 2001; Slinger, WI - Rich Loch led flag to flag and dominated the Miller Lite Rusty Wallace Special 75 lap late model feature Wednesday night at the Slinger Super Speedway. "It's been awhile since we've been here and I had my doubts if we would get back here in victory lane soon enough. I just tried to save tires and be smooth" Loch told the crowd after claiming his third career late model feature victory and first of the 2001 season.

Loch shot out into the lead from his front row starting spot immediately at the drop of the green flag, which was waved by NASCAR Winston Cup driver Rusty Wallace. Brad Mueller and Donavan Morgan jumped into the second and third positions. Loch maintained a steady two-car length lead over Mueller who held a three-car length advantage over Morgan while Lowell Bennett and David Prunty battled for fourth and fifth. Loch worked lapped traffic masterfully and neither Mueller nor Morgan was able to close ground. Loch led at the halfway point to collect the $100 Mac Tools Halfway Bonus.

A minor scrape with a lapped car on lap 54 nearly erased Loch's advantage but he was able to recover and raced the final 21 laps unchallenged to take the checkered flag three car lengths ahead of Mueller. Bennett made a late race charge on Morgan for third and was able to move alongside on the final lap but fell short at the finish line. David Prunty finished fifth.

In other late model action, Mike Egan held off Todd Thelen to win the late model semi-feature and Al Schill scored the victory in the dash. Charlie Thon was the fastest qualifier with a lap of 11.752 seconds.

Jeff Holtz scored his third feature win of the season in the Midwest Modified 30 lap feature. Brian Holtz led the opening lap before rookie Dan Jung raced alongside to take the lead on lap two. Jung and Holtz ran side by side with Dale Prunty and Jeff Holtz occupying the third and fourth positions close behind. Contact between Steve Lurvey and Gregg Pawelski on lap six caused Pawelski to spin in turn three collecting Mike Graczkowski, Mike Held, and Lenny Gallenberg in the process.

On the restart, Prunty was able to mount a challenge for the lead on the outside. Prunty used the outer groove to power by for the lead on lap eight, bringing J. Holtz with him to drop Jung back to third. B. Holtz and Chris Petersen also got by Jung who received the consolation flag a few laps later when he was judged to have not held his line in the turns. J. Holtz dogged Prunty for eight laps before motoring by to take the lead on lap 16. Holtz led to the finish to score the win over Prunty while B. Holtz held off Petersen for third. Dan Miller finished fifth.

In other modified action, Prunty won the dash and Alan Keppert was the fastest qualifier with a lap of 12.639 seconds.

Pat McIntee backed up his fast time effort in qualifying by winning the 18 lap Slinger Stinger feature.  John Henning, Bill Shavlik, Jason Feyereisen, Scott Ascher, and Paul Wagner all battled for the lead in a wild scramble at the start of the event. Oil on the track produced the first caution flag on lap eight as many of the front running cars spun. The incident was especially bad for Ascher and Wagner who became hooked together and received enough damage to relegate them to the pit area.

Both returned for the restart with Shavlik in the lead. McIntee used the inside line to work his way to the front soon after and charged to the checkered flag to take the win. Wagner put on a driving clinic to advance from the back of the field to a close second at the finish. Jay Bleskan was third with Roger Schmid and Henning rounding out the top five.
In other Slinger Stinger action, Jimmy Evans and Paul Wagner each won heat races while McIntee was the fastest qualifier at 13.387 seconds.

NASCAR Winston Cup driver Rusty Wallace visited the speedway and watched the night's races with season pass holders in the V.I.P. pavilion. Wallace, the 1989 NASCAR Winston Cup champion who has raced at Slinger in the past, also waved the green flag to start the late model feature.
