DENNIS PRUNTY WINS E.H. WOLF & SONS 80 AT SLINGER SUPER
By Dean Strom
WI) May 29, 2005 - Dennis Prunty, of Lomira, won the E.H. Wolf & Sons late
model 80, Sunday night at Slinger Super Speedway. The win was Pruntys first of the
2005 season. Defending track champion, Gary Lamonte, of West Allis, won the Midwest
Sportsman feature while Jason Feyereisen, of Random Lake, was the winner of the Midwest
Dave Teske, of
Richfield, and John Mueller, of Hubertus, brought the 20-car late model field to the green
flag. John Mueller got the jump on the field and led Teske, Mark Bitzan, of Menomonee
Falls, Pete Wiedmeyer, of West Bend, and Prunty at the completion of lap one.
The first of two cautions
flew on lap six for a spin involving Donavan Morgan, of Oconomowoc, and Randy Schuler, of
Mequon. Both were able to continue.
Teske shadowed John Mueller before moving around him and taking the lead on lap 12. A John
Mueller bobble allowed Prunty to get by and assume the runner-up position and quickly set
chase towards leader Teske.
It took Prunty just five laps to move past Teske. Once slipping to second, Teske was under
immediate pressure from Fred Winn, of Sussex.
Former Slinger Super Speedway track champion Conrad Morgan, of Waukesha, was on the move
and cracked the top five by the events halfway point. Two-time, and defending track
champion, Brad Mueller, of Random Lake worked his way to the top five on lap 48.
The final caution of the event, a spin involving Slinger drivers Tony Strupp and Mike
Egan, tightened the field and set up a 30-lap battle to the finish.
Shortly after the restart, Morgans great run came to an end when his car suffered a
fuel pick up problem. Brad Mueller, meanwhile, advanced to third and was on the move.
With ten laps to go, Prunty charged up the back straightaway with Winn and Brad Mueller in
tow. As Brad Mueller was making a run on second place, Winns machine suddenly broke,
forcing the charging Brad Mueller to lock up the brakes on his potent machine. Brad
Mueller kept his car off the wall, but by the time he recovered, Prunty pulled away to a
10-car length advantage.
Brad Mueller ran out of laps and had to settle for runner-up honors. David Prunty,
Wiedmeyer and Lowell Bennett rounded out the top five.
Gary Lamonte took the lead of the Midwest Sportsman main event on lap 23 when leader Tim
Schmitt bobbled coming off of turn two. Schmitts machine suffered mechanical
gremlins a lap latter, sending his car into a spin, bringing the events only caution out.
Second place runner, James Swan, of Lake Geneva, made a run on Lamonte as the pair raced
to the checkered flag, but came up a half-car length short. West Bend driver Brad Keith,
Collin Bamke, of Slinger, and Scott Ascher, of Sussex, rounded out the top five.
Jason Feyereisen took the lead from Hartlands Russ Grade on lap 10 and held off a
determined Dale Prunty, of Allenton, to capture the Midwest Modified feature. Fast
qualifier Steve Schulz, of Waukesha, settled for third in the race that ran caution free.
Grade and Sussex driver Wes Biswell rounded out the top five.
Ed Wolf was the winner of the Port-A-John Guest Car race, Jim Schmittinger won the
Spectator Elimination race in a 2005 Corvette while Willy VanKamp won the Figure 8 night
