Mid-Season Feature Events
By Sheila Karstaedt
July 7, 2001
Fast and furious Dave Deicher of Plymouth won the EWSC Winged Super Modified, mid-season, 40 lap A-main, sponsored by
Pole-sitter, Ben Schmidt of Cedar Grove, jumped out to the early lead and by lap 7, Schmidt was maneuvering through lapped
traffic. A flip on the front stretch by Plymouth's Bob Brion, after coming in contact with the car of Billy Hafemann, Cedar Grove,
brought out the red flag on lap 11. After getting the mishap cleaned up, Schmidt was being chased by Deicher, Plymouth's Tim
Melis, Dennis Klumb of Grafton, and Glenbeulah's Gary Laack.
Schmidt got off the pace and came to a halt on the track, due to transmission problems, bringing out the caution on lap 19,
handing the lead over to Melis. Chasing Melis was Deicher, Laack, Klumb, and Brian Portschy, Oostburg.
Once again, the yellow came out for an infield tire that was pushed on to the track on lap 26. Hounding Melis on the restart was
Deicher, Laack, Klumb, and Milwaukee's Pete Ostrowski. The car of Greenbush's Dave Becker came to a rest, on the restart, in
turn 1, when his drive shaft broke. The field would be reset with Deicher keeping a close eye on Melis. Deicher made his move on
lap 33 to take the lead and would go on to the victory. Following Deicher across the line was Melis, Ostrowski, Klumb, and Butch
Fast time was set by KenJay Fiedler, Sheboygan Falls, with a 13.965 sec.lap and the Tuschl Septic Systems Hard Charger
Award was claimed by Plymouth's Jeff Fritz by passing 9 cars.
The 15 lap B-main saw Billy Hafemann take the lead, with a caution on lap 3, for an infield tire. Hafemann would set the pace on
the restart being followed by Robert Enders, Campbellsport, Brion, Becker, and Sheboygan Falls Fred Clatt. A strong looking
Hafemann was dealing with lapped traffic by lap 10. Lap 11 saw the yellow flag for debris on the track.
Hafemann, still looking strong, held on to the lead on the restart with Brion, Enders, Clatt, and Becker all setting their sights on
him. Hafemann would take the checkers followed by Enders, Brion, Clatt, and Becker.
Kewaskum's Chad Espen took the lead of the Limited Late Model feature. The car of John Scharenbroch, Sheboygan Falls,
stopped in turn 4, bringing out the caution on lap 3. The restart saw Espen leading Oostburg's Nate Winkel, Tim Carman of
Sheboygan Falls, Sheboygan's Henry Dickmann, and Scott Haugstad of Plymouth.
Winkel was reeling in Espen and on lap 11 would take control of the race. Debris on the track, on lap 18, would bring out the
caution. Espen, Cedar Grove's Charlie Schmidt, Haugstad, and Steve Ziegelbauer, Sheboygan, were all chasing down Winkel on
the restart. On the last lap, Winkel and Schmidt were running door to door, with Winkel pulling ahead by a nose, as they crossed
the stripe. Crossing behind Winkel was Schmidt, Espen, Plymouth's Dan Dippel, and Richard Hed, Sheboygan Falls.
Setting the pace for fast time, with a lap of 16.132 sec., and picking up the Bob Akright Memorial Hard Charger Award, by
passing 14 cars, was Dippel.
The Limited Late Model semi-feature saw pole-sitter Jeremy Becker, Kiel, take the lead with the only caution of the race coming
out on lap 4, when the cars of Dave Schaetzer, Sheboygan Falls, and Sheboygan's Tim Lombardo got together eliminating them
both. Crossing the line first was Becker, followed by Dave Herr, Sheboygan, and Waldo's Don Singer.
Bob Duncan, Sheboygan, found the fast lane to take the lead in the Super Stock feature. Lap 9 found Hingham's Terry McCoy
and Todd Jensema, Sheboygan Falls, knocking on the door of Duncan. McCoy would take the lead on lap 10. By lap 18,
Jensema was closing in and would take the lead on lap 22. Crossing the finish line after Jensema was McCoy, Elkhart Lakes Jeff
Muehlbauer, Brian Gilles, Plymouth, and Brian Genske of Sheboygan Falls.
Fast time was claimed by Doug Teunissen, Sheboygan Falls, with a lap of 18.050 sec. and there was a tie for the WHBL Hard
Charger Award between Gilles and Muehlbauer, each passing 13 cars.
In the Super Stock semi-feature, Elkhart Lakes Abe Meinert took control early. An infield tire that was pushed on to the track
on lap 1 brought out the caution. The restart saw Meinert, Tony Ehaney of Sheboygan, and Sheboygan's Chad Ninmer.
Meinert got sideways on lap 3 and Curt Teunissen, Oostburg, shot up to take the lead. Several cars getting together on lap 4
brought out the caution. Chasing Teunissen on the restart was Plymouth's Kyle Odekirk, Meinert, Jeremy Bushman, Kiel, and
Kewaskum's Dave Holm. Meinert spun on lap 7 bringing out the caution. With Teunissen leading the pack, Mark Scholten,
Oostburg, was now closing in on lap 10. Scholten would run wheel to wheel with Teunissen until Sheboygan's Shaun Goetsch
spun to bring the yellow out once more. Teunissen would hold on to the lead and go on to win. Crossing after Teunissen was
Scholten, Bushman, Plymouth's Paul Perronne, and Bill Greiveldinger, Fredonia.
Carl Gabrielse took the lead from the front row in the 20 lap Mighty 4's race. During the first lap, Rich Miske, Belgium, took over.
Scott Baldock was quickly closing in on Miske by lap 8. Baldock would pass Miske for the lead on lap 9 and go on to claim his
second victory in as many nights. Hounding Baldock to the line was Plymouth's Duane Dippel, Gabrielse, Jaydee Sipiorski, and
Racing resumes next Saturday night at the Sheboygan County Fair Park in Plymouth with the racing program being sponsored
by Sargento. This will also be the Pat Rand Memorial Race of Champions and the Winged Super Modified A-Main will be extended
to 40 laps with driver introductions prior to that. Kris Hansen, Manitowoc, will carry the black flag in memory of Pat.
Also on the agenda for then will be the American Cancer Society Relay For Life Charity Night. A collection will be taken in the
