AMSOIL SPEEDWAY FAIR RACES TO NELSON

 

Darrell Nelson did his usual quick change from the Late Model to the

Modified, rolled onto the speedway and won the 20 lap feature. Kevin Eder

jumped from the outside of the front row to take a commanding lead followed by

Jeff Tardy, Nelson, Jody Bellefeuille, Kelly Estey and Skeeter Estey. Nelson soon

gravitated into second and set out to run down Eder. By the half way point Nelson

got past Eder for the lead with Tardy, Kelly Estey, Bellefeuille and Al Uotinen

following. Kelly Estey ran second with Eder third, Tardy fourth and Uotinen up to

finish fifth. It was Nelson's third feature win of the season.

By the time the 20 lap Super Stock feature saw the checkered flag, caution

flags had whittled down the 21 car field to fifteen courtesy of two big pile ups, one

in the first turn and one in the second turn. All of the caution periods came in the

first three laps causing officials to restart the event single file. A flat tire in his

heat race put point leader Scott Lawrence at the back of the field for the start. A

flat tire in his heat put point leader Scott Lawrence at the back of the pack. Mike

Bellefeuille led from the beginning leading Shane Kisling Jim Campbell, Dave

Flynn and Trevor Wilson. By the mid point Bellefeuille led Kisling, Campbell,

Cory Casari and Dave Flynn. Lawrence had moved up to seventh just behind

Wilson whom he got by for sixth at the end. Bellefeuille went on to take his third

feature win of the season over Kisling, Campbell, Casari and Flynn in the top five.

Tyler Luger took the early lead in the 15 lap Midwest Modified feature, but the

it was to be the Cory Crapser show as the WISSOTA National Point leader in the

division was looking to add to his lead and looking for his 28th feature win of the

season. Crapser reached his goals for the night with a strong run as he worked his

way to second from his third row starting spot to battle Dan Kingsley for the win

with eight laps remaining. A caution flag with six laps to go gave Crapser his

chance. At the green he got a great start and took the lead, then it was "off to the

races" as he drove away from the pack to the feature win. Neil Balduc, Cody

Wolkowski, Dan Kingsley and Deven VanHouse finished in the top five.

Gary Campbell won his first Pure Stock feature of his career at AMSOIL

Speedway Friday. Steve Udeen, Justin Bassa, Justin Madsen and Mark Smith

finished in the top five.
