Sportsman, Pure Stocks, and Bandits Add Big Excitement to ARCA Night at the Dells
6/8/2013
The fans came in droves to enjoy a high powered night of racing action at the Dells Raceway Park. The ARCA Midwest Tour made their first trip back from a three year absence. The undercards, if you will, brought huge edge of the seat feature racing for all.

Let's start with the Bandit division. Fast Eddie Klug and Dylan Delany led the field to the green flag. Delany quickly shot the lead. Klug starts to fall back giving the #99 of Brandon Junget a chance to catch Delany. Birthday girl Haley Kapp kept her #32 in the mix and would be a threat through most of the race. Fans were keeping a close eye on quick qualifier Steven Rozek. He was working inside and outside quietly maneuvering through the field. John Handeland, who seems to be getting better and better every week, kept pace with Rozek. As the race progressed, Delany had built about a half track lead over the pack. He was about to have a picnic lunch when a caution flag slowed the action. The 72 of Ron Coppernoll broke and smacked the wall in the three-four corners. He heads to the pits on the hook of the Blystone wrecker. This put everybody right on the bumper of leader Dylan Delany. Rozek and Handeland were just mere feet away as the green flag resumed the action. Rozek finally gets to side of Delany, Handeland is right there to take advantage of any mistakes made by the co-leaders. Delany's car is hooking up perfectly in the corners and Rozek keeps coming. Down the back stretch with Delany having a slight edge. Into the three four corners for a drag race to the finish..Dylan Delany takes the checkered flag, with Steven Rozek second, and John Handeland completing the top three in the Weaver Auto Parts Victory Lane.

The Pure Stock feature no less exciting! Becky Grabarski and Bic Arendsee led this pack to the green flag. It was great side by side racing, in the early laps, between Grabarski and Arendsee. Arendsee's car slips coming out turn two and that allowed Jeff Burroughs to try and close on Grabarski. Always fighting hard for the top spot is Mark Hohl piloting his #22 to challenge Burroughs for second. This was another race where the quick qualifier, Travis Hancock, was working towards the front. Jumpin' Jimmy Robinson was staying close to Hancock. Meanwhile back at the front, Burroughs shoots past Grabarski for the lead. Grabarski, however, was far from finished with the new leader. She stays close looking for the perfect chance to pounce on Burroughs. Burroughs try to power his car a little faster to get away from Becky. Bad mistake! Burroughs slips coming out of two, Grabarski strikes like a rattle snake as she shoots past and regains her lead once again. Travis Hancock and Jimmy Robinson are now closing fast on the leader. The laps run out as Becky Grabarski takes her first feature win of the season in the Pure Stock feature. Travis Hancock is second, with Jimmy Robinson completing the top three.

Oh we're not done yet!! The Sportsman feature had the fans on their feet screaming at the finish of this one. Kevin Gilding and Jeff Nehrkorn led this pack to the green. Kevin Gilding quickly takes the lead with Nehrkorn, on the outside, falling further back. Brandon Birdsill was dueling with Mike Winters for second place and Ron Coppernoll was keeping his #7 right close to the front. Birdsill gets a little loose, as this one progressed, which gave Coppernoll a shot to close on leader Gilding. Gilding was trying everything to keep the lead, but crafty Rick Coppernoll works by. Gilding falls back in the pack, while quietly weaving through the field was the #21 of Dave Trute. Clilfton Sauey was trying to fend off Trute and Winters as the laps were counting down. Trute is now up to second with Winters getting by Gilding for third. The white flag says

"One more time around guys" Coppernoll feels Trute working to his side. They are neck and neck in the three for corner, the fans on their feet screaming, it's a drag race to the finish line, the checkered flag drops
for....Rick Coppernoll by a whisker over Dave Trute. Mike "Hollywood" Winters completes the top three in the Weaver Auto Parts Victory Lane. A few minutes for the fans to catch their breath, then the ARCA Midwest Tour fired up for their 100 lap feature.
