outpowers Bennett at Slinger with his strategy!
By Weyer / Margetta
2001; Slinger, WI - David Prunty earns his victory by passing former track
Champion Lowell Bennett with 9 laps to go in the E. H. Wolf 80 lap Late Model Feature at
the Slinger Super Speedway. I didnt have the fastest car but I was able to
save my tires and was stronger than others at the end.
John Zimmerman and David Prunty fought for the top spot early on in
the race only to have Zimmerman hold Prunty off and gain a three car length lead. Al
Schill, Wayne Freimund, and Lowell Bennett battled for the third spot until lap 24, when
Cindy Peterson and Mike Egan tangled and collected Race McComb as he spun to avoid the
two. Zimmerman once again lead the field to the restart as Lowell Bennett and Prunty race
back and forth for second spot until Bennett moved around Prunty and charged at Zimmerman.
Zimmerman held off Bennett through lap traffic to claim the Mac Tools half way challenge
although he was tapping on the bumper of the front runner. Bennett began to work on the
inside of Zimmerman for the lead but was shut down by a lap car in the way. Bennett pushed
up to the top grove with a slick move to hold his second spot and take the lead from
Zimmerman with Prunty to follow behind.
Al Schill moves up to take on Zimmerman along with fast charging Eric Fransen to all
battle for third place. With nine laps to go Prunty passes Bennett hard and high on the
track to take over the lead on lap 71. Prunty charges out to a three car lead and out
powers Bennett putting him in second spot while Al Schill wins the third place dual over
Eric Fransen and Zimmerman.
Cindy Peterson took the 30 lap late model semi feature win over Mike Egan. Peterson took
the lead after a restart on lap 11 following and incident in turn 1 involving Chad Barker
and Chris Ratajczyk. Peterson and Eagan advanced to the feature event for there efforts.
Wes Biswell successfully won the late model consolation race and Dave Teske sped away with
the Mac Tools Trophy dash win while Brad Mueller set fast time at 11.762 seconds.
Brian Holtz won the 30 lap modified feature over Steve Lurvey and the new comer Dan Jung.
Holtz had everything going his way most of the event as he survived a caution at the half
way mark involving five cars and pulled out to a six car length advantage only to see a
late caution on lap 19 to bunch up the field.
Holtz pulled away from Lurvey as Dan Jung began to fight for second only
to end up in third with Lenny Gallenberg and Dale prunty to follow. Jung also claimed a
first place victory in the Eldorado Trailer Sales Fast Dash while Jeff Holtz walked away
with a fast time of 12.527 seconds.
Starting from the pole position in the Stinger feature Kurt Brown pulled ahead until
Nathan Fick and Joe DeStefano Sr. caught up working both sides of him. At lap ten the
caution flew when contact between three cars sent the leader spinning to the infield from
oil that was laid down on the track from another competitor.
DeStefano Sr. led the field to the restart as Paul Wagner muscles through
lap traffic to get to DeStefano and passes him on the outer groove to take the lead. Roger
Schmid won the third spot, with Bill Shavlick, and Pat McIntee to round out the top five.
DeStefano also won the first 8 lap heat and Jay Bleskan won the second while Wagner set
fast time at 13.424.
The twenty two field of the team cruisers was out run by the brothers of Darryl and Craig
Adams and the event filled figure eight feature was snatched by Mike Newlin.
In other racing action the Speedway guest car race off was won by an E.H. Wolf Rep and Jim
Schmittinger of Milwaukee won the Spectator Race.
The AAL Fan Challenge was won by eleven year old Tabitha Ziolkowski of Slinger who picked
the winning Late Model feature driver and won the raffle.
