By: Sheila Karstaedt
September 2, 2001
Pole sitter and current points leader Pete Ostrowski, Milwaukee, won the curfew shortened, 15 lap EWSC Winged Super
Modified A-Main at the Manitowoc Expo.
Plymouth's Tim Melis brought out the first caution on the start, as he came in hard contact with the guard rail in turn 2. The
field was reset from the top and the green flag was dropped once again.
On the restart, Tony Wondra of West Bend, took the lead until Ostrowski took control in turn 4 on the first lap. The second
caution of the race was brought out when the ride of Sheboygan Falls KenJay Fiedler stopped on the track on lap 3. Ostrowski
held on to the lead and was being chased by Wondra, Matt VanWyk, Waldo, Kiel's Billy Kreutz, and Brian Portschy, Oostburg.
Several laps later, the yellow came out once again for Portschy, who stopped on the back stretch. The restart saw Ostrowski,
Wondra, VanWyk, Kreutz, and Grafton's Dennis Klumb.
By lap 12, Ostrowski was up on lapped traffic and was very smooth maneuvering through it, going on to claim the checkered.
He was followed to the line by Kreutz, Ben Schmidt, Cedar Grove, Wondra, and Plymouth's Tim McMullen.
The Tuschl Septic Systems Hard Charger Award was claimed by Schmidt, who really had his car hooked up.
The Limited Late Model Feature was a race marred by many cautions. On the start, the cars of Paul Dingel, Sheboygan, and
Sheboygan Falls Tim Carman got together, bringing out the yellow. The field was restarted from the top. Dave Schaetzer
of Sheboygan Falls took the lead from the outside pole position. The caution flag flew on lap 1 for the cars of Aaron Wickersheim,
Oostburg's JJ Walvoord, Richard Hed of Sheboygan Falls and several other cars getting together down the back stretch. Schaetzer
held on to the lead on the restart followed by Waldo's Don Singer and Jason Parrish, Dave Herr, Sheboygan, and Kiel's Jeremy
Steve Hoffmann, driving for Howie Weiss, took the lead on lap 3.
Lap 4 saw major commotion when the cars of Steve Ziegelbauer and Keith Borth, Sheboygan, Sheboygan Falls John
Scharenbroch and Hed, and Dave Lytie were all tangled together. The cars of Ziegelbauer and Scharenbroch would be double
hooked off the track with major damage. The restart saw Hoffmann, Schaetzer, Singer, Plymouth's Dan Dippel, and Parrish all
vying for the lead.
Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove and Becker got together on lap 6 to bring out yet another caution. Hoffmann paced the pack
with Singer, Schaetzer, Dippel and Gary Nelson hounding him.
Singer spun in turn 2 and got caught up on the birm bringing out the yellow on lap 9. Hoffmann held onto the lead with Nelson
keeping a close eye on him and taking over control on lap 10.
Lap 11 saw the yellow once more for the cars of Walvoord, Parrish, and Carman getting together. With the time limit now
expired, the race was restarted with the flagman showing green, white, checkered. Nelson passed Hoffman for the lead and
claimed the victory followed by Dippel, Schmidt, Hoffmann, and Schaetzer.
The Super Stock Feature was shortened to 15 laps due to the city curfew. Kiel's Don Maquissee took the early lead and by lap
4 was maneuvering through lapped traffic. Lap 11 saw the only caution of the race when the car of Bob Albinger of Belgium
stopped on the front stretch. Maquissee was being chased by Elkhart Lake's Jeff Muehlbauer, Donny Kulow of Plymouth,
Oostburg's Mark Scholten and Luke Scholten on the restart. Maquissee crossed the line first with Muehlbauer, Kulow, Brian
Genske of Sheboygan Falls, and Luke Scholten following behind.
The cautionless 15 lap Winged Super Modified B-Main saw mayhem on the start when the car of Cedar Grove's Billy Hafemann
flipped in turn 2. The restart was set from the top. Ben Schmidt, Cedar Grove, took the lead from the drop of the green flag and
never looked back. By lap 4, Schmidt was dealing with lapped traffic. Schmidt went on to win followed by Campbellsport's Butch
Hafemann, Gary Laack, Glenbeulah, Manitowoc's Kris Hansen, and Sheboygan Falls KenJay Fiedler.
The Limited Late Model Semi-Feature saw action on lap 1. With Gary Nelson taking the lead, Jim Lavey spun bringing out the
yellow flag. Nelson set the pace with Borth, Brian Kessler, Plymouth, Campbellsport's Rick Thompson, and Bud Lynn following
The yellow was thrown on lap 5 for debris on the track. Nelson continued to set the pace with Borth, Kessler, Scott Haugstad,
Plymouth, and Cliff Hohn hounding him.
Lavey spun on lap 9 bringing out the caution for the last time. With Nelson out in front, Borth, Sheboygan's Henry Dickmann,
Thompson, and Nate Winkel, Oostburg, were chasing him. Nelson went on to victory lane followed by Borth, Thompson,
Dickmann, and Winkel.
The Super Stock Semi Feature had only 1 caution. Pole sitter Mike Plate of Newton took the lead. Lap 2 saw the only caution
for an infield tire that was pushed onto the track. Plate held on to the lead on the restart followed by Cleveland's Steve Schad, Todd
Jensema of Sheboygan Falls, Plymouth's Brian Gilles, and Brian Goetsch of Sheboygan. Plate went on to claim the checkered
flag followed by Gilles, Schad, Genske, and Hingham's Terry McCoy.
