Marshfield, WI – (July 19, 2014) – The Yellow River Racing Series was back on tap tonight with a special 75 – lap feature event for the super late models. Also, if you weren’t in attendance, you missed one of the best fireworks show in the Midwest. Highland Fireworks put on a magnificent show, and many fans left the facility saying, “wow”!
Once the field of 19 – cars took the green flag for the Yellow River Racing Series 75-lap feature event, presented by Earth Inc., it was two time Yellow River Racing Series champion Steve Holzhausen showed he may know his way around Marshfield Motor Speedway better than anyone Saturday night. After setting fast time, the veteran racer worked his way to the front to win race two of the 2014 Yellow River Racing Series.
“We just had a little better car tonight,” said Steve Holzhausen, “He had a better car the first time around, but we were able to get it done tonight.”
The lead swapped hands early with Ben Pettis jumping out front, then Tim Schendel, but it was Yellow River race one winner, Dalton Zehr, who took the lead on lap 26. As Zehr put distance on the rest of the field, Holzhausen worked his way to the front from his 13th place starting position.
On lap 33 Holzhausen made the move around Pettis and into second and set his sights on Zehr. It took 20 laps for Holzhausen to fully close the gap, but on lap 53 Holzhausen was all over the rear bumper of Zehr and looking for a way around him and to the lead.
Holzhausen stalked Zehr lap after lap. On lap 60 Holzhausen was able to get to the inside of the 119 car and make a run for the top spot. The two raced side by side for two laps, when Holzhausen cleared for the lead and never looked back.
Holzhausen held onto the lead through some late race restarts and stretched the lead to nearly ten car lengths by the time the checkered flag flew. “With 12 to go we had a caution and I thought I was going to make a run at him, “ said Dalton Zehrn, “But he had an excellent start and got a big gap on me and I just couldn’t make it up. He was actually the faster car and I would have had to jump the start to make it up.”
Zehr finished second, Pettis third, Claire Decker fourth and Frank Nitzke fifth.
Back in May, it was Zehr who better Holzhausen in race one of the Yellow River Racing Series. With one race remaining you can bet it will come down to these two in September to determine a Yellow River Racing Series champion.
“We’ve been fortunate enough to win this series the last two years,” said Holzhausen, “So the goal is definite to go that again, but he’s really fast here too and tough to b eat.”
“Basically it’s gonna be whoever finishes ahead of the other and I imagine with Steve it will have to be a win to beat him,” said Zehr.
Heat winners tonight were Don Turner, Kyle Genett, and Tim Schendel.

In Super Stock feature action, it was Karl Genett grabbing the early lead in their 20-lap feature event. Genett’s lead was short lived however, as Brian Weinfurter motored by on lap three. It was Shawn Selzer coming out of retirement and putting heat on Weinfurter for the top spot, but it was Weinfurter coming home victorious. With Selzer in the runner up position, it was Bryan Langreck, Karl Genett, and Greg Mathews rounding out the top five. Weinfurter also captured fast time honors and his heat.
The X-Treme 4′s hit the asphalt again tonight and it was Adam Eckes grabbing fast time honors. Heat winners tonight were Justin Mondeik from Gleason, WI, and Phil Malouf.
Once the X-Treme 4′s took the green for their feature event, it was Justin Mondeik grabbing the early lead. Mondeik couldn’t hold off a very fast Adam Eckes though, as Eckes took over the lead on lap four. Eckes received many challenges from point leader Steve Hauser, but it was Eckes taking the feature win. With Phil Malouf having another strong run finishing third, Derk Hauser and Rick Brandl rounded out the top five.
