Ostrowski, Miske Keep Streak Going, Winkel Claims First Feature Win at Plymouth
Pete Ostrowski, Milwaukee, keeps his winning streak going by winning the Winged Super Modified 30 lap A-Main,
sponsored by Wisconsin Fans for Auto Racing. It was a very interesting start as Paul Pokorski, West Bend, second in
points, started on the pole with points leader, Ostrowski, right next to him. Ostrowski took the early lead with Pokorski
and Plymouth's Tim Melis chasing him down.
The caution flag flew on lap 8 for the car of Cambellsport's Billy Hafemann having brake problems and a possible
fuel leak. On the restart it was Ostrowski, Melis, Pokorski, Brian Portschy, Oostburg, and Plymouth's Tim McMullen.
Lapped traffic played a big part as Melis would catch Ostrowski and they ran close together until lap 28 when Melis
bobbled slightly in turn four, allowing Ostrowski to go on to take the checkered for the fourth time in as many weeks at
Plymouth. Crossing the finish line behind Ostrowski was Portschy, Melis, McMullen, Pokorski, and Gary Laack,
Claiming the Tuschl Septic Systems Hard Charger Award was Grafton's Dennis Klumb. Butch Hafemann,
Cambellsport took home the honors of fast time.
Kris Hansen, Manitowoc, took control of the B-Main by taking it flag to flag. Chasing Hansen to the line was Klumb,
Plymouth's Bob Brion, Dave Becker, Greenbush, and Butch Wondra, Cambellsport.
Pole sitter Nate Winkel, Oostburg, claimed his first Limited Late Model feature win. With Winkel coming up on
lapped traffic, lap 14 saw the only yellow flag of the race for the car of Sheboygan's Dave Herr having a flat tire. On
the restart it was Winkel, Brian Kessler, Plymouth, Kewaskum's Chad Espen, Steve Ziegelbauer, Sheboygan, and
Cleveland's Jim Schmidt. Winkel would hold on to the lead for the rest of the race and take home his first feature
The semi-feature was won by Jeremy Becker, Kiel, followed by Plymouth's Scott Haugstad, and Don Singer, Waldo.
Fast time was claimed by Sheboygan's Dan Dippel.
The Super Stock feature saw Elkhart Lake's Bradley Ruh pull out to the lead early in the race with cautions on laps
2 and 3, slowing the field down. On lap 10, Terry McCoy, Hingham, took over the lead until lap 15, when the cars of
McCoy and Donny Kulow were running door to door and got together down the backstretch, opening the door for
Plymouth's Brian Kaat. Kaat would take over the lead and go on to win. Finishing behind Kaat was Jeff Muehlbauer,
Elkhart Lake, Kulow, McCoy, and Ruh.
Taking home fast time was Plymouth's Ben Schmidt.
The Super Stock semi-feature saw Plymouth's Abe Meinnert cross the line first followed by Josh Gierke and Jeff
Belgium's Rich Miske also kept his winning streak going by winning the Mighty 4's for the fourth week in a row.
Racing returns to the Sheboygan County Fair Park, Plymouth, next Saturday with the Jr. Fan Club Charity Night
sponsored by B & B Ford and Electro Plating. Autograph night has been postponed for next week due to the yearbooks
