COULSON COPS DUBUQUE VICTORY
Duane Coulson finally his way back to victory lane in NASCAR Weekly Racing Series Late Model competition at the Dubuque Speedway on Sunday July 1st. It was the sophomore driverís first victory at his home track since he triumphed at the 2000 Season Championships last September.

Coulson took the lead away from front row starter Dan Galant on the ninth lap by venturing off of the cushion long enough to make the pass underneath. Galant caught a break midway through the race when he slipped off of the backstretch following a lap fifteen restart and lost several positions; but returned to the runner up position when the ensuing scramble behind him sent second place in points Denny Eckrich flying off of the backstretch. Eckrich was able to return to battle after pitting for repairs, salvaging a sixteenth place finish. Galant held on to the second briefly when racing resumed, but eventually fell back, finishing seventh. Darren Mish scored his season best finish of second place by fending off a late race charge by Ryan Dolan, with Mark Merfeld and Curt Hansen rounding out the top five.


Jason Schueller continued his mid-season hot streak by sweeping both the regularly scheduled Modified feature and the make-up event rained out on June 17th. Combined with last weeks efforts, Schueller has scored 3 victories and a second place finish in his last four outings. Taking the lead from the outside front row at the drop of the green during the make up feature, Schueller turned back a strong challenge from Ryan Dolan by using lapped traffic in the 20-lap green to checkers event. Ron Barker finished third ahead of Scott Nesteby and Scott Olson. Dolan again shadowed Schueller for the lead during the regular feature, but was unable to mount a challenge despite several caution flags slowing the race. Nesteby and Olson both improved their first perfomance by finishing in the third and fourth positions, with Jed Hurst rounding out the top five.

Dan Shelliam also kept his win streak intact, scoring his third Pro Stock feature win in a row. After taking the lead at the drop of the green Shelliam went unchallenged, leading Tom Garner, Ty Kleiner, Jeff Kennedy and Jeff Valentine across the stripe. Jason Udelhofen and Ed McIntyre both scored their first Hobby Stock feature wins of the season in convincing fashion. Udelhofen nabbed the make-up feature after taking the lead away from KC Ansel on the third lap and leading Larry Benn and Scott Riechers underneath the checkers, while McIntyre scored his win from the front row, leading every lap ahead of Benn and points leader Jerry Merkes. Ray Fawcett topped Todd Moore and Russ Yonkovic in Fun Car action.


Racing action continues this Sunday July 10th at the Dubuque Fairgrounds Speedway, with Mid Season Championships. Hot laps for all five divisions of NASCAR stock cars scheduled for 6 pm and racing to follow. Highlights from all SPI promoted events are shown on the Race Report on Fox 28/40 Sunday mornings at 10:30 am.
