Next Sunday June 23 NASCAR veteran Ken Schrader of Fenton Missouri will hit the Seymour high-banks with his IMCA Modified and battle our local racers on Gwenne’s Detailing night. The Spectator Eliminators will be back for their third visit of the season.
IMCA Modified Feature…Kyle Kudick was the first to visit the lead before Kyle Lentz snatched it away on lap 3. Troy Jerovetz broke into the runner up position and began to chop away at Lentz lead. A caution at the midway point put the field on the back bumper of Lentz. Jerovetz worked down low passing Lentz for the top spot. Jay Matthias made a late race charge to second but no one could catch Jerovetz as he won his first Modified feature at Seymour. Matthias second, Jason Czarapata scored third and took over sole procession of the point lead, Jerry Wilinski fourth and Marcus Yarie was fifth.
IMCA Stock Car Feature…Devin Snellenberger known as “Snelly” set sail opening up a lengthy lead. Kyle Fredrick and Jeremy Christians raced to the front chasing Snellenberger. A caution on lap 2 for a tire getting knocked into the racing groove resulted with Rod Snellenberger going around in turn 2. Again the green flag flew and Snelly slipped away from the field leaving the battle for second place pay. Title contender Shawn Wagner suffered a flat tire sending him to pit lane, he returned but was laps down. Snelly proved green isn’t an unlucky color putting his green machine in victory lane, his first of the year with a car he built this off season. Fredrick finished second, Brandon Czarapata rallied late for third, Christians fourth and with a fifth place Rod Snellenberger took over the point lead.
IMCA Sport Mod Feature…14 year old Rookie Lukas Lamberies paced the opening caution filled laps before Rob Krull inherited the lead. Aaron Muhle started in 20th and marched through the field taking the lead on lap 7 and never looked back picking up his first ever Seymour feature win. A bit of controversy surrounded the feature winner as he was initially disqualified by the track rep for an illegal RPM chip in his rev box. It was clarified after the night had ended that Muhle had a “spec” engine and not a “crate” motor, he was deemed 100% legal and credited with a well deserved win. Second went to Cody Hokenstad, Rob Charapata, Russell Franks and Tracy Wassenberg competed the top five.
Fastrak Late Model Feature…Wayne Block powered away from his front row starting spot opening up a huge lead. Brett Swedberg and Jeff Curtin worked through the field. Once Swedberg got to second he ran down Block taking his third win of the season. Curtin came home second, Block third, Joel Bennett fourth and Aaron Wickersheim took home fifth.
Street Stock Feature…Ryan Blank paced the opening laps until his motor went up in smoke handing the lead over to Gary Kasperek on lap 8. A caution with 2 laps remaining set up a dash to the checkers and Kasperek held off a hard charging Lexii Ashcraft. Kasperek has only raced twice this season and has won features both nights. Lexii scored a season best second, Jerry Winkler came up short of 3 wins in a row with third, Jerry Kope fourth and point leader John Ashcraft placed fifth.
Sport Four Feature…Tyler Hungerford and Jasper Drengler put on a spirited battle for the win in the waning laps exchanging the lead lap after lap. When the dust settled Drengler came home with his first trophy of the season, with a second Hungerford took over the point lead as Calvin Stueck went laps down on pit lane. Cody Hungerford placed third, Matt Kaye fourth and Brandon Kaye was fifth
