(Francis Creek, WI) October 8 — Neosho’s Mitch McGrath scored a $2,400 payday at 141 Speedway’s Creek Classic Saturday. McGrath won both the Outlaw modified and weekly modified features, each paying $1,200 to win.
A total of 306 participants from three states took part in the nine class show. The field included 17 late models, 45 street stocks, 46 modifieds, 25 Brian Peterson Grand Nationals, 14 hobby stocks, 40 sportmods, 35 stock cars, 47 outlaw modifieds and 37 sport fours.
McGrath led all 30 laps en route to victory in the modified feature. McGrath carefully weaved through lapped cars and kept second place finisher Shawn Kilgore at bay for the win. Beaver Dam’s Craig Priewe earned the Victory Sign hard charger award, gaining nine spots by starting 20th and finishing 11th.
Cleveland’s Jim Schmidt captured the late model feature. Shawano’s Tom Naeyeart earned the Victory Signs hard charger award, gaining six spots finishing fifth.
Oconto Falls’ Kyle Frederick successfully defended his 2010 Creek Classic stock car championship, by winning the stock car main. Suamico’s Josh Long fought off defending track champion Troy Jerovetz of Green Bay to win the sportmod feature. Jerovetz, who qualified through a semi feature, earned the Victory Sign hard charger award, coming from 14th to second.
Bruce Crossing, Michigan’s Jordan Kurtti made the five hour trip from the Upper Peninsula worthwhile. The TNT Speedway (Three Lakes) track champion dodged several caution periods to collect the street stock feature.
Wind Lake visitor Roger Lee emerged triumphant in the Brian Peterson Grand National feature. Denmark’s Tom Brumlic won the hobby stock feature. Clintonville’s Calvin Stueck captured the sport four feature.
S & B Trailer Sales of Suamico and Wisconsin Custom Machine & Tool also provided contingency awards to the drivers.
