WOSICK, HERR, WEINFUTER, GENETT EARN FEATURE WINS!
Marshfield, WI, August 29, 2015 – It was Season Championship night at Marshfield Motor Speedway tonight, and many divisions of racing uncertain who will be the 2015 track champion.
Reagan May turned the fastest lap in qualifying for the Super Late Models. Reagan turned a lap time of 18.474 seconds, edging out Ryan Hinner. Super Late heat winners tonight were Frank Nitzke and Ryan Hinner. Hinner also wrapped up the Kafka Granite Dash 4 Cash championship with a win.
In feature action, it was Frank Nitzke grabbing the early lead in the 35-lap event. Nitzke’s lead was brief however, as Stratford, WI youth Derek Kraus made the pass of Nitzke, for the race lead. For the 13-year old, who earlier in the year captured fast time at neighboring track State Park Speedway, was looking for his first career feature win in a super late model. Kraus grabbed the lead on lap two, and soon had Ryan Hinner in his rear view mirror. Very rarely are there caution flags at Marshfield Motor Speedway; Hence, with a 5-car length lead, Derek Kraus was certainly sitting in the catbird’s seat. Kraus did a remarkable job working his #9 machine through lapped traffic. Hinner, who was looking for his first career SLM track championship, cut the lead to 3-car lengths with 10-laps remaining. Kraus, who earlier in the year won a feature in a truck at Rockford Speedway, stated, “with ten to go, my car started getting a little loose.” However, the 13-year old driver was able to fend off any challenges that Hinner provided, and went on to score his first career feature win. It was a very joyous victory lane for the young Kraus. As he exited his car, the fans cheered and his crew were doing high 5’s. Congratulations to the whole team on a job well done. Ryan Hinner was crowned the 2015 SLM Track Champion, congratulations to the Hinner race team.
