by Joe and Jordan Verdegan
(Francis Creek, WI) July 28– Navarino veteran Terry Anvelink drove around Brookfield’s Ted Dolhun on a lap three restart to capture the WDLMA 25 lap IMCA modified feature on at 141 Speedway in Francis Creek.
A total of 120 cars pulled through the pit gate, including 22 WDLMA late models, 22 IMCA modifieds, 28 stock cars, 21 northern sportmods, 16 sport fours and 11 vintage cars.
Anvelink started in row two and muscled past on the restart. Anvelink kept the lead through a handful of caution periods to capture the win. Kaukauna veteran Pete Parker made some progress, charging from fifth to second within ten laps. Parker hung on for second, followed by former WDLMA late model champion Russ Scheffler of Waukesha, Dolhun and New Berlin’s Bret Sievert rounding out the top five.
Veteran Dean Maurer sweated out several caution periods and a late race surge from Green Bay’s Eddie Muenster to win his first 20 lap feature. Muenster settled for second, followed by Two Rivers’ Kyle Kudick, Green Bay’s Kyle Lentz and Pulaski’s Brad Rohloff.
Green Bay’s John “JJ” Heinz scored a clean sweep of the IMCA stock car class, winning his heat and passing Rick Dix for the lead on lap five to win the 20 lap feature. Dix hung on for second in his best performance of the year, followed by Greenleaf’s Jesse Colwell, Pulaski’s Rod Snellenberger who battled his way into the show by winning the semi feature, and Saukville’s Roger Johnson.
New Franken’s Brad Lautenbach, coming off a spinal injury suffered one month ago in a racing accident, rebounded to capture the 20 lap IMCA northern sportmod feature. Lautenbach fought off a tenacious Johnny
Whitman of De Pere for the victory. Whitman took second, followed by last week’s feature winner Josh Long of Green Bay, Oconto’s Jeremy Cota and Oconto’s Travis Cain.
Pulaski’s Justin Vannieuwenhoven won the 20 lap sport four feature.
Earlier in the evening a pair of makeup features from July 7 were run in the IMCA modified and sport four classes, respectively, which were won by Green Bay’s Jared Siefert and Mishicot’s Dalton Cherney.
Next Wednesday night, August 4 will be the second annual “Clash at the Creek.” $700 will be paid out the winner of the IMCA stock car feature. Running with the stock cars will be the IMCA northern sportmods, grand nationals, street stocks and sport fours. Racing gets underway at 7 p.m..
