Marshfield, WI, April 30, 2016 – Another winter put behind us, it’s spring, and it was the 2016 Spring Opener at Marshfield Motor Speedway. With Mother Nature threatening to the South, Marshfield track officials did a great job of getting the show in.
New cars, new paint schemes, and a fresh start to the race season, as it was great to see the drivers, crews, and fans for another beginning to the start of an exciting season.
In Super Late Model qualifying, it was Greenwood’s Ernie Schlough tripping the clock fastest, with a lap time of 18.093. It was Schlough’s first fast time honor in his young super late model career. In the Kafka Granite Dash 4 Cash, it was Chad Butz grabbing the checkered flag. Heat winners tonight were Jordan Thiel and Ernie Schlough. In super late model feature action, it was Jordan Thiel grabbing the early lead. Thiel and Wyatt Brooks would run first and second, however, Justin Mondeik took over the runner up position on lap 4. With Thiel enjoying a comfortable lead, Dalton Zehr was moving up in a hurry. Zehr and his race team worked through the night to get his car ready for the Marshfield opener. On lap 17, it was Ben Pettis taking over the third position from Justin Mondeik. Up front, it was Jordan Thiel and Dalton Zehr battling for the race lead. Thiel’s machine seemed to push up the track some in turns 3/4. One lap later and with 4 laps to go, it was Zehr sliding to the low side in turn 4, grabbing the race lead. With Zehr up front, Ernie Schlough looked like he had the car to beat tonight, unfortunately, Schlough’s engine expired as he entered turn 3. Schlough did an excellent job of getting his car off the track, allowing the race to go caution free. In the end, it was Dalton Zehr grabbing his first feature win of the year. With Jordan Thiel pocketing second place, Ben Pettis, Justin Mondeik, and Billy Mohn rounding out the top five.
