Nolden Nabs Another

Wisc Dells WI 7/29/17-Current Dells Raceway Park Late Model Points leader Nick Nolden nabbed his fourth feature win of the season by holding off the evenings fast qualifier Jesse Bernhagen in the 50 lap Josh Blum Memorial Saturday night. Former Track Champion Rich Schumann Jr and one of the top Club LaMark rookie of the year contenders Tod Stenson brought the field to green and it was Schumann taking the early lead followed by Tomah driver Thayran Rezin. Rezin would apply the pressure early and often to the leader as Nolden, Bernhagen and last weeks feature winner Jake Zellmer worked their way thru traffic. Lap 16 would change things up as Rezin would leave the speedway with a flat tire leaving a straight path for Nolden and Bernhagen to Schumann's bumper. By the half way mark Shumann's car was getting too loose to hold off the pressure as the pair of Nolden and Berhagen would take over the top two spots leaving Schumann in third now battling with a pair of veteran Kurt Clapper and Brady Liddle. As the laps wound down it would Nolden holding onto the top spot followed by Bernhagen, Schumann, Clapper and Brady Liddle posting a top five on his first visit to the speedway this year. In earlier action it was Thayran Rezin picking up the fast dash, while Chad Miller and Matt Lundberg would win the late model heat races.
