Czaraparta Claims Seymour Modified Thriller


SEYMOUR, Wis. – Jason Czarapata won a thriller in the IMCA Modifieds at Seymour Super Speedway on Sunday night.

Other feature winners were Brandon Czarapata (IMCA Stock Car), Brett Swedberg (Fastrak Late Model), Lukas Lamberies (IMCA Sport Mod), Jerry Winkler (Street Stock) and Calvin Stueck (Four-Cylinders). A total of 114 cars were on hand.

Beau Schroeder was the winner in the Spectator Eliminator.

Jamie Schmidt sped away from his front row starting spot at the drop of the green in the IMCA Modified main event. Kyle Kudick followed suit taking the lead away 4 laps later. Kudick quickly felt pressure from Jerry Wilinski as he wrestled the lead away from Kudick. Wilinski looked well on his way to his first feature of the season as defending champ Jason Czarapata methodically worked his way through the field racing to second.

Wilinski began to feel the heat of Czarapata as the duo raced side by side for the lead leaving fans sitting on the edge of their seat as laps clicked away. Czarapata worked the low groove and his persistence paid off as he secured the lead for the remaining 7 laps, collecting his first feature at Seymour.

It was a double header weekend for Jason after winning at Shawano Speedway Saturday. Mitch McGrath made a late race charge to claim second, Wilinski third, Jay Matthias had another solid run taking fourth after starting in row 8 and Rookie leader Brad Lautenbach rounded out the top five. The contest went green to checker.

Lautenbach also earned the most points for the Ken Schrader challenge pocketing $500 for his efforts. Lautenbach had the best average finish of all the drivers between Oshkosh Speedzone, 141 Speedway and Seymour. Schrader matched his car number with his best finish of the weekend placing ninth.

Brandon Czarapata once again flexed his muscle scoring a division best third feature win of the season in the IMCA Stock Cars.

David Hoerning paced the first three laps of the IMCA Stock Car headliner before Kyle Fredrick took the top spot, Fredrick quickly succumb to pressure from defending Stock Car champion Brandon Czarapata and a lap later Czarapata took the lead. Czarapata went unchallenged through a set of cautions taking another feature win in 2013.
