RYAN BLANK RACES TO FIRST CAREER FEATURE WIN AT SEYMOUR SPEEDWAY
HEINZ & SNELLENBERGER TO BATTLE FOR IMCA STOCK CAR TITLE ON FINAL NIGHT
By Edward Anschutz
(Seymour, WI) August 18, 2013 Results- Ryan Blank outlasted Lexii Ashcraft to score his career feature win in the Street Stocks at Seymour Super Speedway. Other feature winners were Jay Matthias (IMCA Modified), John Heinz (IMCA Stock Car), Josh Long (IMCA Sport Mod) and Calvin Stueck (Sport Fours)

Next Sunday August 25 will be the final point night for all IMCA Sanctioned classes. The Faster Pastor will conclude the nightly events. A total of 98 cars took the green flag, led by 28 Stock Cars, 21 Sport Mods, 18 Street Stocks, 16 Modifieds and 15 Sport Fours.

Veteran Jeff Jungwirth paced the opening laps of the Street Stock feature until Ryan Blank raced by on lap 5. Lexii Ashcraft quickly worked to the runner up position and began working the outside groove moving past Blank at the cross flags. Jerry Winkler raced to third and the battle for the win was on. Blank fired his machine back to the low groove diving under Ashcraft with Winkler right on his bank bumper. Blank and Ashcraft raced door to do for the lead. With 3 laps remaining Blank was able to grasp the top spot and held off Ashcraft for the win by a fender at the checkers. Winkler had to settle for third, Jon Ashcraft and Allan Schlueter came from the back again to complete the top five.

John Heinz put on a dominating performance in the IMCA Stock Cars with his second feature win in a row. Heinz disposed of Dave Hoerning on lap 3 taking the lead. Heinz had to handle a series of early race cautions but went unchallenged for the remainder of the contest. Kyle Fredrick stayed within striking distance of the leader but had to settle for second place pay, Jeremy Wiitala had a sold third, Rod Snellenberger was roughed up midway through the contest resulting in him restarting last on the field. The former champ rallied to finish fourth and Mike Coel was fifth. As the IMCA Stock Cars head into their final night, Snellenberger and Heinz are tied for the point lead.

In IMCA Modified action it looked like Brian Mullen was the man to beat as he maneuvered past Jamie Schmidt for the lead on 10. Jay Matthias was a man on a mission as he quickly raced from row 6 to the runner up spot. Matthias then set his sights on Mullen and with 4 laps remaining Matthias motored by taking the lead. Matthias was never challenged the rest of the event, scoring a dominating 3rd feature of the season. Mullen was second, point leader Jason Czarapata came home third, Schmidt was fourth and Jerry Wilinski rounded out the top five.

Rookie Hunter Parsons paced the IMCA Sport Mod feature until hot shoe Josh Long went wheeling by for the top spot on lap 7. Long never looked back scoring his first feature win of the season. Last weeks winner Joey Taycher came up one spot short of two in a row with second, Kevin Bethke, JJ Anderson and Parsons completed the top five. With Tracy Wassenberg having trouble the entire night Jeremy Cota was able to take over the point lead.

Calvin Stueck padded the point lead with his 5th feature win of the season in the Sport Fours. Brad Wedde was second and early leader Justin Nooyen brought home third.

Trailer Race and Point Chases TONIGHT at Seymour Speedway

Seymour Sunday August 18- 10 AM – This will be a perfect day to load up the family for the best short track racing in Wisconsin tonight at the Seymour Speedway.  

 

Van’s HiWay Auto will be the title sponsor for the full 5 division program on the banked 1/3 mile clay oval..

 

The track will also host their first EVER Trailer Race to close the program.

 

The IMCA divisions will be running their second last point race of the season.  

Defending Budweiser IMCA Modified champion, Jason Czarapata, has a strong hold on the standings with a 25 point margin over Jay Matthias and 27 over rookie Troy Jerovetz.    Czarapata could wrap his up second straight title this week with another strong run.

 

The Coors Light IMCA Stock Car battle is a virtual toss up yet, with former 5 time champion, Rod Snellenberger clinging to a mere 2 point lead over rival John Heinz.  Heinz picked up his second feature win of the season last week and is looking for his first career N.E.W. DIRT title.    Snellenberger is still looking for a feature win here this season but has consistently run in the top 5 to maintain the point edge.

 

The IMCA Sport Mod division has the top three drivers separated by only 11 points.  

Tracy Wassenberg has led the way throughout the season and has three feature wins to his credit.   A DNF and other problems have allowed the competition to creep closer over the past 2 weeks.    Jeremy Cota sits 3 marks back and is tied with 3rd place driver Cody Hokenstad with a division leading 4 feature wins.   Hokenstad is 11 points behind.     These three have been close all season and the next 2 weeks should be exciting to watch.

 

The Street Stock and 4 Cylinders will be running for point for the final 3 weeks.

 

Jon Ashcraft holds a strong 23 point lead over Mert Summers in the Street Stocks.  He has one feature win this season but has been a steady top five runner.   Summers has not won a feature but again shows consistency can make you a contender.   Jerry Winkler has a division leading 8 feature wins but sits 5th in the standings behind Lexi Ashcraft and Alan Schluetter, and out of the title hunt.

 

Tyler Hungerford had led the point standings all season in the 4 Cylinders, until defending champion, Calvin Stueck picked up his 4th feature win last week and gained the point lead by 4 points over Hungerford.   The pair have run strong all season and it should come down to the final night.

 

All the action kicks off at 6PM SHARP.

 

We appreciate you choosing to spend part of your weekend with us every Sunday night at the Seymour Speedway.

HEINZ HITS HAT TRICK WITH IMCA STOCK CAR WIN AT SEYMOUR SPEEDWAY

By Edward Anschutz

(Seymour, WI) August 11, 2013 Results- JJ Heinz hustled past Barry VanStraten with a handful of laps remaining in the IMCA Stock Car feature to score the win at Seymour Super Speedway. Heinz also completed a hat trick weekend by winning Friday at Luxemburg Speedway and Saturday at 141 Speedway. Other feature winners were Mike Wedelstadt (IMCA Modified), Joey Taycher (IMCA Sport Mod), Jerry Winkler (Street Stock) and Calvin Stueck (Sport Fours)

“Mr. Hello” Barry VanStraten looked to be well on his way to victory in the IMCA Stock Car main as he slipped by Brandon Gagnon on lap 2. VanStraten then set sail pulling away from the pack. Title contender JJ Heinz quickly diced through the field and began chopping away at VanStraten’s lead. Once to the back bumper Heinz just couldn’t find the grip to complete the pass as the duo race side by side. With only 5 laps remaining Heinz took hold of the lead and never let up cruising to his 2nd feature win of the season. Brandon Czarapata, VanStraten, Kyle Fredrick and Rod Snellenberger completed the top five. Snellenberger holds a slim 2 point edge over Heinz for the championship.

Joey Taycher’s second visit of the season in the IMCA Sport Mods turned into a successful one as he raced by Hunter Parsons on lap 7 for the lead. Taycher worked the cushion to perfection with a dominating win. Jeremy Cota tightened the points battle with a second place run, point leader Tracy Wassenberg was third, Andy Kleczka and JJ Anderson rounded out the top five. 

Mike Wedelstadt held off a hard charging Jason Czarapata to score his first feature of the season in the IMCA Modifieds. The contest went green to checker with Wedelstadt scoring a clean sweep by winning  his heat race earlier in the night. Czarapata padded his point lead with second, Jerry Wilinski was third, Jay Matthias fourth and Jamie Schmidt brought home fifth. 

In Street Stock action it was Jerry Winkler scoring his 7th feature win of the season. Point leader Jon Ashcraft was second, Gary Kasperek, Mert Summers and Aaron Melchert rounded out the top five. 

Calvin Stueck picked up his 4th feature win of the season in the Sport 4‘s. Andrew Meyerhofer crossed the line second but was disqualified for a rules infraction handing second place to Brad Wedde, Dean Dekeyser, Jeff Behm and Tyler Hungerford rounded out the top five.
