NOLDEN CAPTURES OPENING NIGHT AT DELLS RACEWAY PARK
Wisconsin Dells, WI - May 5, 2013 - Nick Nolden charged from mid-pack to capture his first Late Model feature win of the fresh 2013 season Saturday night at Dells Raceway Park. In the Sportsmen division, Randy Breunig fell one spot short in his heat race from a clean sweep after being fast qualifier and feature winner. Jimmy Robinson blistered the Pure Stocks for the feature win while Steven Rozek brought home the checkers in the Bandits.
Austin Nason led the Late Model field to first green flag and held the lead until lap ten of the forty lap main event. Michael Clapper kept working on Nason finally completing the pass for the point on the high side. Clapper built a solid lead on the rest of the field until Nolden got by Nason for the second spot. Lap after lap, Nolden cut into Clapper's lead until he was on his bumper by lap twenty-five. The only caution flew on lap thirty-one when Haley Capp spun in turn four closing up the field for a nine lap dash to the finish.
On the restart, Nolden had Clapper and hard charger John DeAngelis lined up in row tow and Michael Sauter and fast qualifier Rich Schumann, Jr. behind them. Nolden would not be denied this night as he cruised home to victory lane with Clapper, Schumann, Sauter and DeAngelis coming home in the top five.
Fast qualifier Randy Breunig started deep in the Sportsmen field, but used two cautions and cone restarts to find his way to the checkers and victory lane. After Ron Grabarski and Ron Coppernoll took turns leading the field, Breunig powered to the front using the outside groove the entire way. Once in the lead, there was no stopping Breunig for the first feature win and a successful start to defending his 2012 track championship. Dave Trute finished second in front of Coppernoll, Clifton Sauey and Doug Paul.
There was no stopping Jimmy Robinson in the Pure Stock division. After a rough go in qualifying, Robinson collected the heat win and dominated the feature event. Fast qualifier, Jeff Burrows battled to second with Jared Capek, Travis Hancock and Mark Hohl rounding out the top five.
Allison Pennel set the pace for the Bandit feature and held the top spot until Steven Rozek was able to race to the lead. Pennel cruised home for second ahead of David Treu, Sr., Fast Eddie Klug and Dillon Hammond.
The racing continues at Dells Raceway Park Saturday night, May 11th with a full slate of Late Models, Sportsmen, Pure Stocks and Bandits. Any carload of fans arriving before 6PM will get admission for just $35. There will also be a new exciting Bandit Challenge race. Front gates open at 4PM, Qualifying at 5:15 and racing starts at 7PM.
