Fifth Challenge Series feature win for Friesen
DESHLER, Neb. (June 10) - The Friesen Express rolled out of Deshler with yet another Challenge Series victory.
Jason Friesen was in the right place at the right time, taking the lead after front-runners in the feature for I.M.C.A. Sunoco Late Models got bottlenecked in the first set of turns at Thayer County Speedway.
Al Humphrey applied pressure throughout the race but was unable to catch with Friesen, the winner of all five series events held so far this season.
Third place went to Tommy Rowe while Mike Wiarda brought out a new chassis, worked through some new car gremlins and finished fourth.
While Friesen had the good luck, Jonathan Rehnberg got more of the bad luck. He started on the pole but found the
wall in turn one when he went high to avoid hitting a car that had driven under him and the accident ended Rehnberg's night prematurely.
The race was slowed by only one other caution flag.
Heat winners were Jason Humphrey, Marc Peters of Henderson and Al Humphrey.
