Seymour June 14 Results
Seymour- June 14-N.E.W. DIRT finally enjoyed a perfect day and evening for racing. The track was smooth and fast, a solid, quality field of 118 cars put on an excellent show before the best crown of the season Sunday night at the Seymour Speedway.
The Turbo Blue Street Stocks were up first with Tony Everard setting the pace for the opening 2 circuits. George Tabalske moved into the top spot on lap 3 and led the way for the next 3 laps. Lexii Ashcraft started mid field and took to the outside line at the start and found it to her liking, making 3 wide passes to move into the top spot on lap 6. A lone caution appeared on lap 9 and erased the lead Ashcraft had opened. Tabalske, Ryan Blank, Jared Spaulding, Alan Schlueter and Jeff Jungwirrth were lined up behind.
Schlueter now hooked up on the outside and moved up to the runner up spot with 4 laps left. Schlueter started to close in on the leader and on the final lap, made a drive to the inside, only to have Ashcraft be a bit faster using the outside and collected her first feature win of the season. Schlueter took the runner up spot followed by Blank, Jungwirth, Spaulding and Matt Warner.
Rookie candidate, Trevor Spaulding, started on the pole of the Budweiser IMCA Modified main and took charge at the start of what turned out to be a non-stop event. Rob Charapata, Jamie Schmidt, Konnor Wilinski, Chad Bartel and Andy Kleczka were next after the opening lap. Schmidt moved into the runner up spot on the second lap and right behind the leader and the pair started tom open a lead on the field.
The race for third was a multi car battle throughout the race with Bartel, Charapata and Kleczka, joined by Benji LaCrosse, Brad Lautenbach, Brian Mullen and Jason Czarapata by the mid point of the contest. Spaulding ran like a veteran using the high groove to run smooth laps and hold back Schmidt. On lap 16, slower traffic came into play and Spaulding made a rookie error negotiating around the car that caused him to lose momentum for a split second, just enough for Schmidt to take advantage and dive inside out of turn 2 to take the top spot. LaCrosse and Bartel ran right up on Spaulding, but for the final 3 laps, could not force him into another error. Schmidt took the checkers for his first feature win of the season. Spaulding claimed the runner up finish, his best of the season. LaCrosse, Bartel, Mullen and Czarapata rounded out the top six.
The Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars lined up for their main event with Tom Riehl grabbing the lead for the opening lap before Brian Ambrosuis took charge on lap 2. A string of 5 cautions over five laps kept the field bunched and close to running out of time to complete the race. A final restart with 11 laps left saw Barry Van Straten in the lead followed by Travis Van Straten, Ambrosius, Kyle Frederick, Riehl, Rod Snellenberger and Jon Courchaine. Barry Van Straten was running tight to the inside and Travis took the outside line. After three laps, Travis inched into the lead and then set out to runaway to collect his second feature of the season here. Snellenerger took the runner up spot by inches, side by side with Barry Van Straten at the finish line. Frederick was fourth with Courchaine fifth. Chas Van Ooyen earned the sixth spot after restarting earlier in the race from the rear.
The O’Reilly Auto Parts IMCA Sport Mods took the track next with Jason Ebert taking the lead for the first lap before Brian Bruechert moved into the lead on lap 2. J.J. Andersen, Travis Arenz, Bill Edler and Dennis Meisler took the spots behind. By Lap 10, Jeremy Cota, Lucas Lamberies and Brandon Riedner had moved into the top six. Bruechert and Andersen were in a tight nose to tail battle until lap 13, when there was contact entering turn one, causing Bruechert to spin. Andersen was able to gather his machine back up but was called for the caution. Bruechert regained the lead and Andersen restarted from the back.
On the restart, Arenz was able to sweep by on the outside and take the top spot fro 2 laps before Bruechert returned to the lead and then held off Arenz to collect his first ever Seymour Sport Mod feature. His last feature win here was in the Stock Cars on September 6, 1999. In the tight battle behind, Cota took the third place finish ahead of Riedner, Lamberies and Meisler.
Brian Johnson started the 4 Cylinder main from the pole and took charge at the start. Joe Minks, Carl King, Calvin Stueck, Kasey Gross, and Tyler Hungerford were bunched back a little further on the track.
A lone caution slowed the pace on lap 10 with minks, Tanner Westphal, Stueck, Hungerford and Gross behind. Johnson took off again on the restart, but did not open as big a lead but was able to stay out front to collect his second feature win of the season. Westphl took runner up honors. King came back strong after the restart and took third. Hungerford ended up fourth with Mike and Jasper Drengler rounding out the top six.
