Marshfield, WI, (August 22, 2013) – After most of the weekend was blanketed with cloudy/rainy weather, fans were treated to some great weather today for the Dan Weinfurter Memorial race.  Many fans poured into Marshfield Motor Speedway to pay respects to the Weinfurter family, and in memory of a great young man, Dan Weinfurter.MMS-0011

A special purse of $400 was going to one lucky Pure Stock driver, the winner of the Dan Weinfurter Memorial.  Setting fast time in the Pure Stocks was Athens, WI driver Dillon Mackesy.  Mackesy turned a 21.911 on the paved half mile.  Rangeline, WI driver Karl Genett was the winner in the Pure Stock heat.  In feature action, it was Kyle Genett grabbing the early lead and setting the pace the first eight laps.  On lap nine, it was Dillon Mackesy over taking Genett for the race lead.  By lap 15, Mackesy stretched his lead by 3 car lengths as Karl and Kyle Genett battled for the runner up position.  Battling for the fourth position was Mike Weinfurter and Travis Volm.  One lap later, Volm experienced a problem with his #76 car, and exited to the pits.  Once starter Geno Eckes threw the checkered flag, it was Dillon Mackesy pocketing the $400 and getting his first feature win of the year at MMS.  With Kyle Genett finishing a solid second, it was Karl Genett grabbing the third position.  Rounding out the top five, it was Mike Weinfurter in fourth, and Kurtis Wosick pocketing fifth place prize money. Note: Karl & Kyle Genett are tied for the top spot in the race for the season championship.MMS-7194

There was no qualifying for the CWRA Super Late Models today, instead, the children in the stands drew for the drivers starting positions.  In heat action today, it was Derrick Van Dreel and Dalton Zehr earning wins.  In the first CWRA feature event, it was Jeff Weinfurter grabbing the early lead from his outside pole position.  Weinfurter built a nice lead as Dalton Zehr and Derrick Van Dreel battled for the second position.  Once Zehr cleared the car of Van Dreel, Weinfurter experienced a 6 car length lead.  Zehr, who has been having a great season, was able to cut the lead minimally.  Jeff Weinfurter, who has had great luck at Marshfield in recent years, earned his first feature win of the year at Marshfield.  With Dalton Zehr coming home in the second positon, it was Derrick Van Dreel cruising to a third place finish.

In the second feature for the CWRA Super Late Models, it was Wayne Breitenfeldt and Mike Sievers battling for the race lead.  As the drivers entered turn one on lap three, Breitenfeldt and Sievers left enough room for Dalton Zehr to make a three-wide pass.  With three wide passing legal at Marshfield, Zehr did a remarkable job clearing the two cars without incident.  Zehr opened the door for Jeff Weinfurter to make the pass on Breitenfeldt and Sievers as well, to gain the second spot.  With Zehr holding a commanding lead over Weinfurter, the real battle was for third.  It was Kirby Kurth and Jake Capek racing side by side for the position.  With Kurth finally gaining the third position, it looked as if Kurth might have something for Weinfurter for the runner up spot.  In the end however, it was all Dalton Zehr, as he grabbed yet another feature win.  With Jeff Weinfurter holding off Kirby Kurth for the second spot, it was Jake Capek and Darek Gress rounding out the top five respectively.
