Justin Mullikin (Holmen, WI) surged into the lead at the start of the Budweiser 20 lap NASCAR Late Model feature #1. Brent Kirchner (LaCrosse, WI) moved into second on lap three and stuck right with Mullikin in his quest for the top spot. With six laps to go Adam Degenhardt (Coon Valley, WI) dove low on Kirchner for second and quickly caught up to Mullikin for the lead. Mullikin got loose coming out of turn four with four to go but held onto his race car and the lead. Just when Degenhardt tried to make his move the yellow flag flew for Mandi McKinney’s (West Salem, WI) spin on the back straight. Mullikin shot in front of Degenhardt on the restart and slowly began to pull away to capture his first ever NASCAR Late Model feature win. After the race Mullikin said “To say Degenhardt and Murgic made me work for that one is a huge understatement.”
The 2nd Budweiser 20 lap NASCAR Late Model feature had a hard time getting started due to two yellow flags coming to the start. The third time to start was the charm as Nick Clements (West Salem, WI) surged ahead of Matthew Henderson (LaCrosse, WI) to move into the top spot on lap two. Nick Murgic (Rosemount, MN) stuck his nose under Clements on a lap six restart and was fully in command of the race by lap seven. Whatever adjustments were made to Adam Degenhardt’s car they were working as he took over second with nine laps to go and tried to slowly reel in the point leader. There would be no stopping Murgic as he captured his second checkered flag of the season After the race Murgic said “We were struggling the last few weeks, so we used the off week to work on the car and it paid off.” Murgic was also the night’s fastest qualifier, coming within a tenth of a second of the track record.
Rob Stanfield got around newcomer Dan Noth two laps into the Mini-Van feature. Al Bartels challenged Stanfield for the top spot over the final six laps, but Stanfield ran away with his second straight feature victory.
The Upper Midwest Vintage Racing Series feature provided a little extra excitement with a one lap shootout for the win. Todd Korish surged ahead of Jim Kulseth in that one lap shootout to claim his first feature win in nearly ten years.
