By Sheila Karstaedt
July 28, 2001
Milwaukee's Pete Ostrowski, EWSC Winged Super Modified points leader, found his way to victory lane by winning the 30 lap
Pole sitter Paul Pokorski of West Bend took the lead. With quite a commanding lead, Pokorski lost control in turn 4 on lap 8
and spun into the infield falling to 6th. The lead was handed over to Glenbeulah's Gary Laack. On lap 11, Tim McMullen,
Plymouth, took control of the race with lapped traffic now coming into play. Ostrowski was closing in on McMullen while both were
maneuvering through the traffic.
Lap 29 saw the only caution of the race as KenJay Fiedler, Sheboygan Falls, lost control of his ride and spun on the track. The
restart saw McMullen, Ostrowski, Plymouth's Dave Deicher, Barry Maas of Cascade, and Pokorski. During the parade lap,
McMullen pulled off the track, due to mechanical problems, turning control of the race over to Ostrowski. Ostrowski led the pack
to the finish line followed by Deicher, Laack, Maas, and Pokorski.
Fast time was set by Maas with a lap of 13.624 and the Tuschl Septic Systems Hard Charger Award was shared by Maas and
Oostburg's Brian Portschy, both passing 8 cars.
The 15 lap B-Main was paced by Dennis Klumb of Grafton. The caution flag flew on lap 4 for the car of Plymouth's Tim Melis,
who had engine problems and was eliminated for the night. The restart saw Billy Hafemann, Cedar Grove, Waldo's Matt VanWyk
and Lee Mohs, and Kris Hansen, Manitowoc, chasing Klumb.
Lap 14 saw the red flag for the car of Lomira's John Schraufnagel getting upside down after getting together with another car.
Once again, the leader, Klumb, would pull off the track on the parade lap of the restart, due to mechanical problems, leaving
Hafemann in control. Hafemann went on to take the checkered flag followed by VanWyk, Tony Wondra, West Bend, Mohs, and
Sheboygan Falls Richard Hed took control of the 25 lap Limited Late Model feature and never looked back. Henry Dickmann,
Sheboygan, stopped on the track bringing out the caution on lap 5. Hed would pace the field with Plymouth's Scott Haugstad,
Steve Ziegelbauer, Dave Herr, and Terry Goetsch, all of Sheboygan, chasing him.
Lap 7 saw the yellow again for an infield tire being pushed on to the track. Hed would continue to set the pace with Ziegelbauer,
Goetsch, Haugstad, and Herr behind him. Lap 21 actually saw the caution flag twice. The first time was for the car of Sheboygan
Falls Dave Schaetzer and Mark Zimmermann, Kohler, getting together. The field was set with Hed, Ziegelbauer, Haugstad,
Oostburg's Nate Winkel, and Dingel Bros., Sheboygan. On the restart, coming out of turn 4, several cars got together with
Plymouth's Dan Dippel taking a wild ride down the front stretch, ending up on his side against the front stretch wall. After making
sure everyone was uninjured and getting the mayhem cleaned up, Hed would go on to win followed by Haugstad, Ziegelbauer,
Dingel Bros., and Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove.
Fast time was set by Dippel with a lap of 15.893 and the Bob Akright Memorial Hard Charger Award was claimed by Mark
Zimmermann, passing 11 cars.
The Limited Late Model semi-feature was exciting from the start as Kiel's Jeremy Becker and Keith Borth, Sheboygan, would
exchange the lead until lap 3, when Borth bobbled in turn 4 and Becker took control. Becker took home the checkered flag with
Waldo's Don Singer, Borth, Todd Humphrey, Sheboygan, and New Holstein's Jason Winkler following.
The Super Stock 20 lap feature saw Bob Duncan of Sheboygan, take the early lead. The yellow came out on lap 1 for several
cars getting together on the front stretch with the ride of Sheboygan Falls Todd Jensema flipping. The restart saw Donny Kulow,
Plymouth, Belgium's Bob Albinger, Dean Horneck, Kiel, and Hingham's Terry McCoy chasing Duncan.
Duncan lost control and spun on lap 6 giving the lead to McCoy only to surrender it to Brian Genske, Sheboygan Falls, on lap 8.
Sheboygan Falls Doug Teunissen and Ben Schmidt, Plymouth, got tangled and brought out the yellow on lap 10. Genske was
hounded by McCoy, Elkhart Lakes Jeff Muehlbauer, Luke Scholten, Oostburg, and Plymouth's Brian Gilles on the restart. Genske
crossed the line first followed by Muehlbauer, Gilles, Scholten, and Plymouth's Brian Kaat.
Fast time was set by Doug Teunissen, Sheboygan Falls, wirth a lap of 17.577 and the WHBL Hard Charger Award was awarded
to Gilles for passing 15 cars.
The 15 lap Super Stock semi-feature saw Belgium's Dan Holm take the lead with Paul Perronne, Plymouth, chasing him. Lap 8
saw a caution for several cars getting together. Holm was being chased by Perronne, Oostburg's Curt Teunissen, Bill
Greiveldinger, Fredonia, and Kiel's Jeremy Bushman on the restart. On the restart, Tony Ehaney, Sheboygan, brought out the
yellow flag by getting caught up on an infield tire.
Teunissen took over control of the race on lap 9 and would go on to claim the victory followed by Bushman, Holm, Greiveldinger,
Plymouth's Duane Dippel took the early lead in the Mighty 4's race which saw a season high 18 cars take to the track. On lap
2, Tim Sauter, Plymouth, took over the lead and having to deal with lapped traffic by lap 8. T. Sauter would cut down a tire and
hand the lead over to his son, Sheboygan Falls Jeremy Sauter. J. Sauter would go on to victory lane followed by Scott Baldock,
Elkhart Lake, T. Sauter, Dennis Moehring, and Sheboygan's Roger Borth.
A benefit for Cerebral Palsy was held with several of the Mighty 4 drivers donating their cars for local media to race. The 10 lap
media race was won by WWJR's Travis Styles followed by Tommy C. of WBFM (B-93), Racing Onlines Jeff Sachse, Kerry Longrie
of WKTT-Cleveland, and Berry (The Bear) Hirsch of WKTT-Cleveland.
