LAUTENBACH, CZARAPATA & COTA CATCH MOMENTUM TAKING WINS @ SEYMOUR
By Edward Anschutz
(Seymour, WI) June 9, 2013 Results- Brandon Czarapata continued his hot streak with his second feature win of the season at Seymour Super Speedway. Other feature winners were Brad Lautenbach (IMCA Modified), Josh Moesch (Fastrak Late Model), Jeremy Cota (IMCA Sport Mod), Jerry Winkler (Street Stock) and (Sport Four) Calvin Stueck.
Action was halted in the first Modified heat when Roger Van Roy’s throttle stuck heading into turn 3. With such a high rate of speed the car spun and went tail first into the wall crushing the rear of his chassis. His racer then made a trip on top of the wall and slid to a stop back on the track upside down in turn 4. The wreck resulted in a trip to the hospital for Van Roy. Word from the safety crew is that he was awake and alert but suffering some back pain. Everyone at Seymour Speedway is wishing Roger a speedy recovery.

Harley Simon slipped past the birthday boy Brandon Gagnon for the lead of the IMCA Stock Car feature on lap 2. Rod Snellenberger gave chase working to the inside of Simon for the top spot. Snellenberger and Simon made contact in turn four as the caution flew for debris resulting in Simon suffering a flat tire. Simon made the trip to pit late and returned on the lead lap. Snellenberger paced the field on the restart with Shawn Wagner keeping the pressure on. It looked as though Snellenberger was going to finally get the monkey off his back but with four laps remaining Brandon Czarapata caught him and made the pass for the lead. Czarapata cruised to the win his third of the weekend after taking checkers at Luxemburg Speedway on Friday and Shawano Speedway on Saturday. Snellenberger had to settle for second place pay, point leader Wagner was third, Jeremy Christians driving the 1330 machine was fourth and Mitch Stankowski placed fifth after starting in row 6.
Veteran racer Mike Wedelstadt paced the opening laps of the IMCA Modified main. Kurt Moeller suffered mechanical issues resulting his car spinning in turn 4 catching the right side of Rookie Brad Lautenbach’s machine tearing the right side open like a can-opener. As the race restarted Lautenbach looked even faster with the damage passing Wedelstadt for the lead on lap 4. Wedelstadt kept the pressure on the entire race as the duo ran side by side lap after lap. Lautenbach held off all advances scoring his second feature in a row. Wedelstadt finished a solid second, Marcus Yarie placed third and took over the point lead, Jay Matthias and Troy Jerovetz completed the top five.
It only took Jeremy Cota 1 lap to race from row 3 past pole sitter Robby Thiel and to the lead in the IMCA Sport Mod feature. Cota put it on a clinic distancing himself from the field. A caution with 10 laps remaining proved to be no match for Cota as he again pulled away scoring his second feature of the season. Aaron Muhle made a late race charge to second, point leader Tracy Wassenberg placed third after starting in row 10, Rod Solem was fourth in his first visit of the season and last weeks winner Cody Hokenstad brought home fifth.
Cody Welch and Jeff Wickersheim battled for the lead in the Fastak Late Model main with Wickersheim securing the top spot on lap 4. Wickersheim’s reign up front didn’t last long as Josh Moesch motored around the leader midway through the contest and never looked back picking up the win in his first visit of the season. Welch came back for second, Derek Janke, Aaron Bennett and Wickersheim rounded out the top five.
Jerry Winkler worked past Ryan Blank on lap 2 and went on to win his second feature in a row in the Street Stocks. Jerry Kope second, point leader Jon Ashcraft third, Patty Winkler fourth and Blank had a season best fifth.
Calvin Stueck passed Dennis Lewins for the win on lap 5 of the Sport Four feature. The win is Stueck’s second of the season placing him in a tie for the point lead with Tyler Hungerford who placed second, Jason Cornelius made his first run of the season placing third, Lewins held on for fourth and Carl King rounded out the top five.
