JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, May 16, 2015)              Two time Jefferson Speedway Late Model champion, Casey Johnson of Edgerton, charged to the front of the pack on Saturday night to claim victory in the Stoddard’s Meat Market 50 lap main event. Starting on the outside of row six, Johnson methodically picked his way to the front of the field for his first win of 2015.

Tyler Peterson and Craig Phillips paced the stacked field of competitors to the drop of the green flag. Phillips led lap one by a nose with Peterson hanging tough to his inside. Peterson grabbed control of the point on lap two with Chris Quam filling the gap under Phillips as they fought for second. Quam slipped past Phillips and tried to draw even with Peterson at the front. By lap four, Quam and Peterson were side by side. A lap later, Quam slid into the lead with Luke Westenberg in tow for second. A caution on lap 13 slowed the pace when Bruce Lee spun down the backstretch. Quam led the pack back to green followed by Westenberg, Michael Grueneberg and Peterson. Johnson entered the top five on lap 21 while the leaders bumped and banged for position. Grueneberg and Noel Ramge battled for third with Johnson watching from fifth. When Grueneberg regained the third spot, Johnson motored under Ramge to steal fourth. On lap 31, Johnson pulled alongside Grueneberg for third, clearing for the position on the exit of turn four. Johnson continued to surge to the front, stealing the second spot from Westenberg on lap 37. Johnson set his sights on the leader, Quam, catching him with 12 laps to go. Johnson dove under the leader as they entered turn three on lap 39. After a brief side by side fight, Johnson moved out front and quickly began to pull away. At the checkers, it was Johnson for the commanding victory followed by Quam, Grueneberg, Westenberg and Ramge.

In Sportsman action, Whitewater’s Jay Kalbus captured the 30 lap feature event. Jason Kubicz and Russ Nicholson brought the field to green as they battled wheel to wheel for control. Kubicz held the advantage at the completion of lap one, but Nicholson fought back to grab sole possession of the lead on lap three. Kalbus followed into second as the top two began to break away from the field. Tim Coley moved into third on lap seven followed by Terry Wangsness for fourth. Kalbus made his move for the lead on lap nine as he drove under Nicholson exiting turn two. Kalbus claimed the top spot on lap 11 with Wangsness up to third. Wangsness got past Nicholson for second on lap 14 with Jason Thoma in his tracks for third. After a caution on lap 19, Wangsness and Thoma made contact resulting in Thoma experiencing a flat right front tire to bring out a second yellow flag. As racing resumed, Kalbus remained in control all the way to the checkers for the win. Wangsness, Tony Ciano, Mark Deporter and Nicholson rounded out the top five.

Madison’s Mike Lambert used a late restart to grab the lead and hang on to win the 20 lap International feature event. After an early caution on the opening lap, Dan Birkett took the early lead with Jason Uttech in second and Neil Higgins up to third. On lap six, Higgins drove under Uttech to claim second and set his sights on Birkett at the point. Higgins drew even with Birkett on lap seven, clearing for the top spot two laps later. Lambert moved into the second spot just before the caution waved on lap 13. Higgins and Lambert led the field back to green with Lambert gaining the advantage through turns three and four. One more caution with four laps remaining set up another battle between Lambert and Higgins, but Lambert took control once again to grab the win. Higgins finished second followed by Seth Reamer, Birkett and Joe Cross.

Waterloo’s Dustin Ward took the lead late in the 25 lap Hobby Stock main event to claim his second feature of the season. Jeff LeFave took the lead from the outside of row one with Wayne Buchs still flanking his inside. Buchs battled back to draw even with LeFave as the field lined up two by two. LeFave and Buchs continued to fight for position with LeFave inching forward lap after lap. LeFave finally cleared for the lead on lap 14 with Ward and Boyd Eichelkraut fighting for third. Ward claimed the position on lap 16 and quickly drove to the high side of Buchs looking for second. By lap 18, Ward was in possession of second and still moving forward. With six laps left, Ward again used the outside groove to pull alongside LeFave at the front. Ward cleared for the lead as they raced through turns three and four. Bobby Selsing Jr followed into second, but Ward had the field covered as he cruised to the stripe for the win. Selsing was second followed by LeFave, Buchs and Eichelkraut.

Bill Sweeney of Aztalan captured his second consecutive feature win by claiming the 20 lap Road Warrior main event. Jordan Lamb and Lucas Stephenson made up row one at the start. After a caution on lap two, Stephenson experienced problems forcing him to retire from the event. Don Mattrisch emerged with the lead while Bryan Gottschalk moved into second. Gottschalk went to work on Mattrisch with Sweeney now up to the third spot. Gottschalk took charge of the point on lap four with Sweeney in tow for second. Sweeney quickly made his move for the lead, driving under Gottschalk on lap five. After making contact entering turn one, Sweeney grabbed the lead and began to pull away. Chris Gottschalk joined his brother in a fight for second as the laps dwindled. At the checkers, it was Sweeney for the win with Bryan Gottschalk holding off Chris Gottschalk for second. Rounding out the top five were Kenny Storkson and Craig Henning.

Madison’s Jamie Kohn grabbed the lead late in the 20 lap Bandit feature to claim his second win of the 2015 campaign. Brody Chilvers and AJ Hill brought the field to green. On lap one, Tyler Deporter joined them to create a three wide fight for first. Deporter emerged with the lead on lap two with Josh Marx up to second. Marx began to apply heavy pressure to Deporter for the top spot while Chad Olds and Dustin Yanke moved toward the front. On lap seven, Marx got under Deporter as they fought for the lead. Yanke used the bottom groove to set up another three wide battle for the top spot on lap 11. This time, Yanke took control with Kohn following him into second. Kohn began looking under the new leader on lap 13. A lap later, the two were side by side with Kohn taking the lead exiting turn four. Kohn didn’t look back as he drove off to get the win. Yanke was second followed by Olds, Marx and Jeremy Bredeson.

Scheel Captures Serenity Concepts 50

JEFFERSON, WI  (Saturday, May 9, 2015)                                Stephen Scheel of Lake Mills took top honors at Jefferson Speedway on Saturday night by winning the Serenity Concepts 50 lap Late Model main event. Scheel grabbed the lead early and held off a hard charging Craig Phillips to claim the victory.

Tyler Peterson and Chris Quam paced the field of hot shoes to the drop of the green. Quam held a slight advantage as they completed lap one. Quam cleared for control of the lead on lap two with John Ovadal Jr following into second and Stephen Scheel in third. The first of three cautions waved on lap four when Ovadal spun exiting turn four. Ovadal escaped major damaged as he was relegated to the rear of the field on the restart. As racing resumed, Scheel moved up to challenge Quam for the top spot. On lap five, Scheel got under Quam entering turn three as the leaders raced side by side. Scheel moved past Quam for sole possession of the lead a lap later with Quam back to second followed by Phillips in third. Phillips went to work on Quam for the second spot, getting to his inside on lap 13. After a four lap battle, Phillips claimed the runner up spot on lap 17. The leaders raced single file while several battles for position raged behind them. The second caution slowed the field on lap 29 when Kyle Smith spun exiting turn four. Once racing resumed, Scheel and Phillips began to break away from the rest of the pack with Phillips remaining tight on Scheel’s rear bumper. Phillips continued to apply heavy pressure to the leader with Scheel keeping him at bay with each passing lap. A final caution on lap 46 set up a four lap shootout to the checkers, but Scheel remained in control to cross the stripe first for the win. Phillips settled for second followed by Dylan Schuyler, Casey Johnson and Quam.

Stoughton’s Jim Taylor led all 30 laps of the Sportsman main event to claim his first win of 2015. Taylor took control of the point on lap one from the pole with Mike Storkson dropping into second. On lap three, Mike Winters moved past Scott Hoeft for the third spot with Tony Ciano right behind in fourth. Winters got alongside Storkson for second on lap eight while Ciano watched closely from fourth. Winters cleared for second on lap ten with Ciano still in his tracks. Ciano quickly went to work on the new second place machine, driving under Winters and stealing the position on lap 12. Ciano spent the remainder of the caution free feature race trying to run down Taylor. But Taylor stayed strong out front to see the checkers first and claim the win. Ciano was second with Jay Kalbus, Terry Wangsness and Jason Thoma rounding out the top five.

Madison’s Mike Lambert claimed the 20 lap International feature event. Gary Stark Jr took the early lead from the front row while Keith Bell and Brandon DeLacy battled for second behind him. Stark began to stretch his advantage while the fight for second between DeLacy and Bell was joined by Merek Pankow. While Stark grew his lead, Pankow battled up to second with Lambert in his tracks for third. Lambert drove to the high side of Pankow, claiming second on lap ten. Lambert began to reel in Stark who was enjoying a healthy advantage. Lambert chipped away at Stark’s lead until finally catching him with six laps to go. Lambert again drove to the outside, clearing for the top spot on lap 15 and driving away to the checkers for the win. Stark finished second followed by Seth Reamer, Pankow and DeLacy.

In Hobby Stock action, it was Lucas Buckingham of Whitewater leading flag to flag to capture the 25 lap feature event. Jim Wolf and Buckingham led the field to green with Buckingham leading lap one by a nose. A quick caution on lap two handed sole possession of the lead to Buckingham with Wolf running second and Wayne Buchs in third. Buchs went to work on Wolf as racing restarted. After a brief battle, Buchs claimed the position behind Buckingham. The battle for third through sixth got hot and heavy as AJ Lloyd, Bobby Selsing Jr and Dustin Ward were trying to make their way to the front. Buckingham continued to show the way with Buchs right behind in second. As they flew towards the white flag, Wolf and Selsing made heavy contact resulting in both drivers being forced to slow. Ward pounced on the opening as he slid into third with Selsing regaining control and Wolf falling back into the field. Buckingham charged across the stripe to see the checkers first with Buchs on his bumper for second. Ward was third followed by Selsing and Dylan Buckingham.

Bill Sweeney of Aztalan was the winner of the 20 lap Road Warrior feature event. Lucas Stephenson and Charles Novotny led the field to green with Stephenson taking the early lead. After an early caution on lap two, Stephenson and Novotny restarted side by side with Bill Reynolds and Tom Dorn right behind. Stephenson regained the point on the restart with Reynolds sliding up to second. Reynolds charged past Stephenson to take the lead with Sweeney already up to second on lap four. Sweeney drove to the high side of Reynolds on lap five, clearing for the position as they entered turn three. Craig Henning followed Sweeney around Reynolds on lap seven as the leaders began to pull away from the rest of the pack. Sweeney remained in control of the race as he cruised to the checkers for the win. Henning was second with Kenny Storkson, Bryan Gottschalk and Dorn completing the top five.

In Bandit feature action, it was Nick Schmidt of Watertown taking top honors in the 20 lap affair. Bill Kohn led early from the front row with a jumble of drivers fighting for second behind him. Schmidt slid into control of the second spot on lap three as he drove alongside Kohn for the lead. Schmidt took the position a lap later with Josh Marx in tow for second. After a caution on lap nine, Schmidt restarted alongside Marx with Schmidt regaining the point on lap ten. Jamie Kohn moved up to battle with Marx for second on lap 11 with Kohn taking the position for himself on lap 13.
