Bennett charged out to the first place spot, while Dan Mills maneuvered into second spot by lap two. Bennett began to pull away until a caution flag flew for cars spinning on the front stretch in front of the leaders. On the restart Bennett maintained the lead as Mills and Chris Peterson fought for second spot. Schill, starting in eighth position, charged forward to take forth spot from Scott Schoeni on the outside.

     Schoeni began to fade as Mueller took over fifth place by lap 15, and joined the three-way battle for third with David Prunty, and Schill. While Bennett’s advantage grew to nearly seven car lengths, Mueller used the inside groove to take second place from Peterson and David Prunty moved up to battle Schill for forth place.

     Bennett led at the halfway mark and appeared to have the race in hand until lapped traffic began to interfere with his progress, allowing Mueller to close in on the lead. Prunty fought with Mueller for second and took control on lap 52, as Schill and Rich Loch edged close. Mueller’s back quarter panel began to come loose and progressively became worse. Mueller received the black flag on lap 69. Another caution waived for debris on the track, allowing the field to come together. On the restart, five lapped cars separated Bennett from Schill, Prunty and Loch. Schill maneuvered his way through lapped traffic when a third caution flag flew for a spin in Turn Four. On the final lap, Schill tried the bottom groove of the speedway and was able to pull alongside Bennett, heading into Turn One. As both drivers exited the fourth turn, Schill was able to motor his engine ahead and take the win.

     “The last two laps were a gift from heaven from my late son, Al Schill Jr.,” said Schill afterwards. “With another feature win, it looks like I can’t quit yet.”

     Schill added another feature win to his career, while Bennett placed a competitive second. David Prunty and Rich Loch finished third and forth, respectively.

     In other Late Model action, Brad Hartman won the 30-lap semi-feature and Ryan Mathews finished second to transfer into the feature. Brad Dahmer was third, while Tommy Hromadka and Travis Dassow rounded out the top five. Mike Monroe won the 15-lap Late Model consolation race over Rick Corso and Edward Grober. Brad Mueller won the Fast Dash and David Prunty set the fastest qualifying time with a lap of 11.333 seconds.

     Current track record holder Dan Miller drove away to the win in the 30-lap Eldorado Trailer Sales Midwest Modified feature.

     Steve Schulz and Miller battled for the lead at the start as Russ Grade and Dennis Prunty raced for third ahead of Larry Reihbrandt. An early caution flag was shown as two cars tangled out of Turn Four. On the restart Prunty and Grade dueled for second, as Miller expanded his lead over the pair. Miller was untouchable during the final laps and breezed to the win over Prunty while Holtz took third over Biswell and Dale Prunty.

     The Eldorado Trailer Sales Midwest Modified Fast Dash went to Russ Grade and Dale Prunty set fast time with a lap of 12.084 that was just shy of the track record of 12.195 set two weeks ago by Dan Miller.

     Scott Ascher won the 25-lap Midwest Sportsman feature in a break away performance.

     Brad Keith, and Mike Graczkowski battled for the lead at the start, over Nick Schumacher and Scott Ascher. By lap ten, Ascher worked through lapped traffic and moved into the second spot and began to work on Keith. Ascher took the lead on lap twelve bringing Schumacher and Josh Bauer along for the ride. Schumacher tried his best to get by Ascher, but could not prevail and finished in second while Bauer finished third. Greg Hermann was fourth and George Schultz rounded out the top five.

     The Midwest Sportsman dash was won by Brad Keith, while Josh Bauer set fast time with a 12.535 lap.

     Dave Berndt won the Slinger Bees feature and the Figure 8 event was won by Scott Goetzke. The team of Al Stippich and Doug Pasbrig drove to the win in the Team Cruiser division, while Jim Schmittinger topped the Spectator Eliminator action.
