A huge field of 99 cars started the grinding 200 lap Big Cheese Enduro. With so many four and six cylinder cars mixed throughout the field and starting at different intervals, the action and mayhem began almost immediately. Turn two was an early hot spot as a number of pileups occurred early in the race. A couple of drivers got spun out in turn three and tried to get their race cars turned around. Instead of waiting for the jam truck they turned around in heavy traffic and collected a few other competitors. A few drivers had hard hits into other cars that just got out of an incident only to have their night go from bad to worse. A number of rear bumpers were torn off of cars during the first 100 laps and made for a minefield of obstacles for the other competitors to avoid. A number of drivers were suffering from flat tires during the first half and a few even turned into Skidders as they kept racing on the wheel rims. The halfway break was reached on lap 109 as the competitors were given 10 minutes to work on their cars with Matt Kasper leading the way.
42 drivers were able to fix their cars and return to action for the second half of the Big Cheese Enduro. Action and calamity was still lurking as the race resumed even though the field was a bit smaller. Troy Tuma and Wesley Townsend tangled in turn two on lap 123. Tuma’s night would end with his right front tire all bent out of shape. Noah Jennihgan lost it in turn two and ended up against the tire barrier on lap 125. Blake Rehnpit’s left front wheel broke loose on the front straight on lap 127 as he hit the wall hard to bring out the red flag. On the restart Matt Kasper continued to juke and jive through the field with relative ease. Mechanical issues were now becoming the problem as field was slowly being whittled down. Brad Owen popped a wheel on lap 182 causing a collision with Lester Stanfield. Stanfield bounced off the front straight wall but was able to keep racing. Back up front Kasper continued to make quick moves through traffic in his unscathed race car as the laps clicked away. The field was no match for Kasper as he scored a big win and claimed the $1,000 winner’s purse.
Peter Thompson had a hungry pack to hold off over the final seven laps of the Street Stock feature. Thompson did a terrific job to hold off Jake Schomers, as well both Chris and Keith Larson to win the last feature race of the year on his 17th wedding anniversary. Rob Stanfield did just enough to lock up the season points title, his third division championship of 2021.
In the High School Racing Association feature Braydon Lockington pushed things a little too hard as he tangled with leader Joey Miller on lap six. That handed the lead to Mitchell Berg who drove a perfect race to win the final feature of the season. Lockington wrapped up the LaCrosse championship for the High School Racing Association, while Berg locked up the division’s regional championship.
