Ostrowski Makes It Back to Back EWSC Super Mod
by Sheila Karstaedt
August 4, 2001
Milwaukee's Pete Ostrowski extended his points lead by winning the cautionless EWSC Winged Super Modified 30 lap A-Main.
Paul Pokorski, West Bend, took the lead from the pole with Ostrowski keeping close tabs on him. Ostrowski would take the
lead on lap 9 as Pokorski and himself came upon lapped traffic. Ostrowski and Pokorski would run wing to wing and exchange the
lead several times until lap 15 when Pokorski took control.
With lapped traffic now causing a problem and holding up the leaders, Ostrowski took the lead for good on lap 18. Pokorski
would continue to chase Ostrowski only to run out of laps. Crossing the finish line behind Ostrowski was Pokorski, Plymouth's
Dave Deicher, Tim McMullen, Plymouth, and Whitelaw's Chuck Tuschl.
Setting fast time was Barry Maas, Cascade, with a lap of 13.683 seconds. Sharing the Tuschl Septic Systems Hard Charger
Award was Manitowoc's Kris Hansen, Dennis Klumb, Grafton, and Cedar Grove's Billy Hafemann.
The Winged Super Modified B-Main was also a cautionless race. Pole sitter KenJay Fiedler, Sheboygan Falls, was a man on a
mission and took the lead from the start and never looked back. Maneuvering smoothly through lapped traffic by lap 6, Fiedler went
on to claim the checkered flag followed by Klumb, B. Hafemann, Campbellsports Robert Enders, Jeff Fritz, Plymouth, Hansen,
West Bend's Tony Wondra, and Craig Perko, Plymouth.
The 25 lap Limited Late Model feature saw several cautions as Oostburg's Nate Winkel took the early lead. The ride of Howie
Weiss, Glenbeulah, brought out the first yellow by spinning on the track. On the restart it was Winkel, Kiel's Jeremy Becker,
Jason Parrish, Waldo, Sheboygan's Keith Borth, and Dave Herr, Sheboygan.
At the drop of the green flag, the cars of Kohler's Mark Zimmermann and Dingel Bros., Sheboygan, got together and brought out
the caution for a second time. The field was reset and Winkel continued to set the pace until lap 3 when Becker took over.
Lap 3 saw the caution for the third time as the car of Herr came to a halt on the track. The pack was reset with Becker,
Plymouth's Brian Kessler, Zimmermann, Winkel, and Steve Ziegelbauer, Sheboygan.
The caution would come out one more time on lap 17 for debris on the track. Becker would continue to lead the field being
followed by Kessler, Zimmermann, Oostburg's JJ Walvoord, who, starting in last, was making his way through traffic, and Winkel.
Becker crossed the line first followed by Kessler, Zimmermann, Walvoord, and Dan Dippel, Plymouth.
Fast time was set by Walvoord with a lap of 15.591 seconds and the Bob Akright Memorial Hard Charger Award went to
Walvoord also passing 14 cars.
Plymouth's Scott Haugstad took the Limited Late Model semi-feature from green to checkered with no cautions. Finishing
behind Haugstad was Henry Dickmann, Sheboygan, Elkhart Lake's Nate Ruh, Dan Singer of Waldo, and Chilton's Steve DeKerf.
The Super Stock feature saw Bradley Ruh of Elkhart Lake take control of the race and hold on to it through many cautions in a
race shortened by time.
On lap 2, Donny Kulow, Plymouth, and Plymouth's Brian Kaat got tangled together. The restart saw Terry McCoy, Hingham,
Sheboygan's Brian Goetsch, Shawn Goetsch of Sheboygan, Oostburg's Mark Scholten, and Kyle Odekirk, Plymouth, chasing
The caution came out again on lap 3 for the car of Sheboygan Falls Todd Jensema coming to a rest against the guard rail in
turn 1. The restart saw Ruh, McCoy, B. Goetsch, Odekirk, and Jeff Muehlbauer of Elkhart Lake.
One lap later, Plymouth's Brian Gilles, brought out the caution again by getting caught up on an infield tire. The restart was
again paced by Ruh.
The caution came out again on lap 8 for the car of Muehlbauer spinning on the track. Chasing Ruh on the restart was McCoy,
Mike Plate of Newton, Cleveland's Steve Schad, and B. Goetsch.
B. Goetsch spun on lap 13 bringing out the caution once again. The time limit had now expired for this race so the restart saw
the green, white, checkered. Making a dash to the checkers was Ruh, Schad, Plate, Brian Genske, Sheboygan Falls, and
Oostburg's Mark Scholten lost a tire on the restart bringing out the caution for the final time. Ruh went on to claim the victory
followed by Plate, Genske, Doug Teunissen, Sheboygan Falls, and Schad.
Fast time was claimed by D. Teunissen with a lap of 17.094 seconds and the WHBL Hard Charger Award was claimed by
Sheboygan's Jeff Leonhard took the lead in the 15 lap Super Stock semi feature. Mayhem on lap 3 collected several cars.
Jeremy Bushman, Kiel, Sheboygan's Mike/Dale Damrow, Ken Childre of New Berlin, Random Lake's Tony Miller, who was
transported to the hospital for precautionary measures, and Dave Holm, Kewauskum, were all involved. Leonhard continued to
pace the field followed by Sheboygan's Tony Ehaney, Mike TeStrote, Sheboygan, Plymouth's Eric Mueller, and Chad Ninmer,
The cars of Mueller and Ninmer spun on lap 5 bringing out the caution. Chasing Leonhard was TeStrote, Oostburg's Curt
Teunissen, Ehaney, and Abe Meinnert, Elkhart Lake.
Leonhard came upon lapped traffic on lap 7, and on lap 11 Sheboygan's Brian Konitzer spun, bringing out the caution. Leonhard
was followed by C. Teunissen, TeStrote, Meinnert, and Bushman on the restart.
TeStrote stopped on the track on lap 12 with the restart seeing Leonhard, Teunissen, Paul Perronne, Plymouth, Meinnert, and
The final caution of the race came out on lap 14 when Ehaney , Ninmer, and Meinnert got together.
Leonhard went on to victory lane with Teunissen in second, Perronne in third, Childre in fourth, and Damrow in fifth.
Belgium's Rich Miske took a quick lead in the Mighty 4's until lap 2 when Dennis Moehring took over with Elkhart Lake's Scott
Baldock close behind. Baldock took control on lap 4 with lapped traffic coming into play on lap 7.
Jeremy Goetsch of Sheboygan brought out the caution on lap 9 by stopping on the track. Baldock held on to the lead with
Sheboygan Falls Jeremy Sauter, Moehring, Erin Veldboom, Oostburg, and Plymouth's Tim Sauter following.
Baldock went on to win followed by Moehring, Veldboom, J. Sauter, and T. Sauter.
Racing resumes next Saturday night at the Sheboygan County Fair Park in Plymouth. On the agenda for then is the Jr. Fan
Club Picnic, the Super Stock Mechanics Race, and it will also be autograph night. Everyone is invited in the pits after the races to
