Track cleaning crew?  Children attending the the event at Slinger this week were able to participate in a coin grab which took place on the track.

“I really wanted Al Schill to win that race,” stated Mueller after scoring his third feature win of the season. “That man deserves to win his kid’s race, he’s a hard competitor and when I saw him coming with five to go there, I knew I would have my hands full because the car was good but it wasn’t that good tonight.”

Schill made a valiant charge to win the race, held in honor of his son, late in the race by using the outside groove to move from sixth to Mueller’s rear bumper over the final circuits and came up just short at the checkered flag.

Earlier in the event, Mueller chased Dave Teske, who led a majority of the second half of the race and appeared to be on his way to his first late model feature victory before spinning in turn three while battling Mueller for the top spot on lap 64.

“I feel bad for Dave Teske,” Mueller continued afterwards. “We were battling pretty hard and he got loose getting in (the turn) and got into my door and spun. I don’t know if I would’ve been able to get by him as he was running a good race.”

Pete Wiedmeyer rocketed into the lead at the start from his outside front row starting spot and held the point for the first ten laps before Conrad Morgan took command of the race while Rich Loch, Teske, and David Prunty joined the lead pack. Morgan’s turn out front lasted four laps before Loch took over the lead just before the first caution flag flew on lap 16 for a spin by Brad Hartman. Loch continued to lead on the restart as Prunty jumped to the outside and began to pressure Morgan for second with Teske close behind. Prunty gained control of second on lap 25 and began to track down Loch for the lead when he suddenly slowed and retired from the event due to a broken header pipe.

Prunty’s exit moved Teske into second place ahead of Morgan, Mueller, and Ryan Mathews. Austin Konetski’s engine problems on lap 39 brought out the caution flag again and on the restart, Teske shot by Loch to grab the lead. Teske led at the halfway mark to collect the Badgerland Motorsports Halfway Challenge as Loch began to fade when his right front tire went flat. Teske held onto the lead through another caution period on lap 53 when Dennis Prunty, Wiedmeyer, and Mike Pascavis tangled in turn one and turned back several challenges before spinning on lap 64 while battling Mueller for the lead.

Schill charged to the outside over the final laps and sliced his way to second place as he closed in on Mueller en route to his second place finish. Morgan finished third while Ryan Mathews and Mike Egan rounded out the top five.

In other Late Model action, Lowell Bennett won the 30-lap semi-feature and Scott Schoeni finished second and claimed the final transfer position into the feature. Eric Fransen finished third ahead of Brad Dahmer and Dan Jung who were fourth and fifth respectively. Chad Barker was the winner of the late model consolation race. Conrad Morgan won the Fast Dash and David Prunty set fast time with a 11.269 second lap.

Wes Biswell collected a birthday gift as he won the 30-lap Eldorado Trailer Sales Midwest Modified 30-lap feature.

The event got off to a rocky start when Roger Schmid broke an axle during hot laps but once the event got underway, Gregg Pawelski took the early lead over Steve Schulz and Brian Holtz. Pawelski pulled ahead as Dale Prunty advanced forward, passing Holtz and Schulz to take second. The hard, intense racing up front created a logjam of cars and Russ Grade became a victim of the gridlock and slid into the infield to produce the first caution. Prunty raced into the lead on the restart as Biswell and Pawelski became locked in a battle for second. Biswell took over the position and began to chase Prunty for the lead as Ken Wills moved into the top five.

A second caution appeared on lap 22 when Larry Reihbrandt and Jason Feyereisen tangled on the backstretch, setting up an eight lap dash to the finish. Biswell remained glued to Prunty’s tire tracks on the restart as Schulz, David McCardle, and Russ Moberly slid into the second turn wall to slow the event under the yellow flag once again. Biswell took to the outside groove during the final five laps and was able to edge ahead as both he and Prunty took the white flag. Biswell maintained his momentum heading into turn one and emerged with the lead, holding on to capture the victory over Prunty and Holtz. Wills finished fourth and Pawelski was fifth.

Wes Biswell won the Eldrado Trailer Sales Midwest Modified dash while Larry Reihbrandt turned in fast time with a 12.121 second lap.

Scott Ascher raced to the victory in the 25-lap Midwest Sportsman feature, holding off Nick Schumacher and Josh Bauer for his second consecutive feature win.

Steve Campbell led the early laps as Pat McIntee, Brian Keith, Bauer, and Ascher occupied the second through fifth positions. With Campbell still leading, Bauer and Ascher worked their way into second and third by lap five. Campbell drifted wide in turn two on the next lap, and Ascher capitalized on the miscue by charging by and into the lead. A spin by Todd Gehring slowed the event under caution on lap ten and once racing resumed, Ascher continued where he left off, by pacing the field as the leader.

With Ascher still leading, Bauer and Schumacher muscled their way around Campbell for second and third place just before another caution appeared on lap 13 when Dave Obermeyer slowed with a flat tire. Ascher checked out on the restart and never looked back as he cruised to his second feature win in a row while Schumacher was able to catch and pass Bauer for second. Gary LaMonte was fourth while Campbell finished fifth.

Ascher also won the fast dash while Nick Schumacher placed time trials with a 12.581 second fast lap.

Mark Fogel and Eric Schmitz claimed the first heat of the Team Cruisers as Al Stippich and Doug Pasbrig won the second heat. Aaron Cain won the Slinger Bees feature over Shawn Gavin and Ryan DeStefano while Scott Goetzke took the win in the Figure 8 event that finished a lap early when Shane Becker and Curt Mielock met in the “X”. Rob Meyers won the Spectator Elimination races and Dave Markowiak was the winner in the Port-A-John Speedway Guest Car event.
