Ty Reedy of Holmen, WI takes home his first Late Model feature win ever in the Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Model feature tonight at La Crosse Speedway. He claimed the number 1 spot right off the green flag and stayed there until the checkered flag flew. Brent Kirchner fought his way from sixth to finish second in the feature and Ty Majeski of Seymour made his way to third from his 14th place start.
Dakota Miller was running in the top spot in the Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen feature for the first 9 laps, but after a caution, Nathan Borchardt claimed the top spot for a couple laps until caution number 2 flew.
