SIEFERT CAPTURES IMCA MOD WIN NUMBER EIGHT AT 141 SPEEDWAY
By Chris Janda
(Francis Creek, WI) May 11 – Luxemburg’s Jared Siefert lead from the drop of the green and led every lap to capture the IMCA modified feature at 141 Speedway in Francis Creek Saturday. The win was the 2010 IMCA modified track champion’s 8th career feature win at the third-mile clay oval since it was converted to dirt in 2010.
A total of 127 cars checked in to do battle. The field included 23 Hansel Trucking IMCA modifieds, 10 Brian Peterson Grand Nationals, 27 IMCA stock cars, 23 Tisler Salvage street stocks, 29 Hansel Trucking IMCA northern sportmods and 15 sport fours.
Siefert, who started on the pole position, had a close call when rookie TJ Smith’s racer stalled on the track. That forced Siefert to take evasive action and dive underneath Smith with Eric Iten slipping around Smith safely before the caution flew. Luxemburg’s Jeremy Jacobs stormed into second with two laps remaining and gave a late race charge but came out second at the pay window. Van Iten took third, followed by another former track champion Shawn Kilgore taking fourth. Jay Matthias of De Pere rounded out the top five finishers.
In the IMCA stock cars Oconto’s Dustin Loberger captured back to back feature wins, having won last week as well. By winning back to back weeks he now has padded his points lead over John Heinz of Green Bay who was side by side with Loberger on the last lap but comes up short in second. “High Side Hustler” Kyle Frederick comes up third with the “Wild Child” Tyler Smith of Luxemburg in fourth.
In the Hansel Trucking IMCA sport mods it was Suamico’s Andy Kleczka who put on a dominating performance in the feature and captures his first feature win this season at 141 Speedway. Defending track champion Josh Long of Suamico charges hard but comes up short in second with Oconto driver Travis Cain picking up his best feature finish in third and Kewaunee’s Brian Bruechert in fourth.
Greg Haese of Manitowoc captures the feature win in the Brian Peterson Grand Nationals, by winning this feature he now will be the points leader of Don Sorce. Sean Mueller of Plymouth has his best feature finish in second with “Whitelaw Weapon” Kevin Naidl capturing third.
Jerry Kope of Oshkosh picks up a clean sweep in the Tisler Salvage street stock division. Shawn Hayden finishes second and Paul Deifenthaler in third, both drivers of Manitowoc.
Former track champion Ralph Legois Jr. of Oconto won the sport four feature.
