FRANCIS CREEK, Wis. – Early season gremlins have prevented Kevin Naidl from having the point lead right now in the Grand National division at 141 Speedway.
But that is not to say that he isn’t on the move in the standings after his fifth-straight feature win Saturday night.
Other feature winners included Tim Czarneski (IMCA Modifieds), Dustin Loberger (IMCA Stock Cars), Cody Schroeder (IMCA Sport Mods) Keith Kickbusch (Street Stocks) and Shaun Bangart (4 Cylinders.)
Randy Markwardt ran up front to start the IMCA Modified feature event. He paced the first two laps in front of the field but not without heavy pressure from Tim Czarneski. Czarneski who won the Red race early in the season found the same line around the third-mile and took control up top on lap three. A couple of cautions kept the field close but Czarneski was able to pull away on the restarts. A battle for second took place between Mike Mashl and Troy Jerovetz.
Mashl would eventually win the race for second and set his sights on the leader. Mashl was able to inch closer and as the white flag flew get to a car length back. On the final two corners, Mashl shot down low but came up just short of the win. Czarneski won the coveted feature win plaque in front of Mashl. Jerovetz survived a late race battle with Eric Mahlik to finish third. Josh Long finished fifth and moved into second place in the standings.
Paul Holschuh led the field to the green flag in the IMCA Stockcar Main Event and led the first four laps. Justin Jacobson moved on top of the track and jumped into the lead with Rod Snellenberger right behind. Snellenberger shot into the lead on lap eight and paced the field with Jacobson in tow. The duo would come together sending Snellenberger to the infield and back to fourth. Dustin Loberger was able to take advantage of the raucous and steal the lead.
