Jankowski Scores MMS Feature Win, Pettis Retains Point Lead
TIM ANDERSON GETS FIRST CWMSA FEATURE WIN! MALOUF, POLANSKY, ECKES STAY HOT!
Marshfield, WI, August 4, 2012 – With stormy weather pushing through the area by mid afternoon, it ended up being another great night of racing action at Marshfield Motor Speedway! It was Kid’s Night at the Speedway with many kids in attendance with hopes of going home with a new bike!
In Super Late Model feature action, for the first 10-laps, Wisconsin Rapids driver Mark Eswein and Kyle Genett raced door handle to door handle, side by side, for the race lead. Fans loved the race lead battle as these two drivers raced without making contact with each other. On lap 11, Eswein decided to save his tires and pulled behind Genett for the second position. With Genett leading, Cory Jankowski moved into the third position and set his sights on Eswein for the runner up spot. Jankowski worked his way to second and was starting to look for an opening to get by Genett for the race lead. On lap 16, Jankowski drove his car into the third corner using Genett to keep his car from spinning out. Both drivers managed to keep their race cars straight with Jankowski coming out the benafactor and taking the race lead. Jankowski was able to hold off Genett for the race win, with Eswein, Paige Decker, and Ernie Schlough rounding out the top five. Point leader Ben Pettis captured fast time, Jim Sauter, Jr. won the Napa of Marshfield Dash 4 Cash, with Kyle Genett and Jeff Weinfurter winning their respective heats.
Phil Malouf jumped out to the early lead in the CWSSA Super Stock feature event, but that was short lived as Brian Weinfurter grabbed the lead away from Malouf. Weinfurter continued to hold the top spot until lap 14, that was when Malouf recaptured the top spot away from Weinfurter. With Natalie Decker holding down the third position, the top two drivers were putting on quite a show for the Marshfield fans. In the end however, it was Phil Malouf barely holding off a hard charging Brian Weinfurter for the race win in what had to be one of the best raced super stock features in recent history! With Decker finishing third, it was Bryan Langreck fourth and fast timer Bruce Stanley fifth.
Looking to put on another great show for the fans at Marshfield Motor Speedway, the CWMSA 4-Cylinders competed in another great-action packed feature event. Rick Brandl moved his #43 machine into the top spot for the first 6 laps with Tim Anderson a close second. Anderson moved to the top spot the next lap and never looked back. Anderson, who is competing as a rookie in the division, was looking to take his first CWMSA feature event. Getting heavy pressure from Derk Hauser in the closing laps, Anderson was able to hold off Hauser and earn his first career feature event. With point leader Steve Hauser winding up third, Rick Brandl and Charles Dixon rounded out the top five. Derk Hauser earned top qualifying honors with Steve Hauser and Rick Brandl taking heat wins.
Randy Polansky ran away with another sweep in Bandit action. Polansky earned fast time honors with a lap time of 23.549 seconds. With Polansky taking the feature win, Corey Stephens and Brian Hudson put on another great show as they finished second and third respectively. John Radtke and Christine Schmude ended up having another good night with these competitors rounding out the top five.
The Motorcycles were once again part of the racing program tonight with Cliff Eckes taking the top spot in both the heat and feature events. Steve Kasten finished a strong second, with Craig Lewis bringing his motorcycle home in third.
Cruisers were back competing at the speedway and put on quite a show. Kalatta and Wheelock have been fast wherever they compete and tonight was no different. The two drivers wheeled their car to the front with lots of horsepower down the shoots and took the feature win!
