Hauser & Hauser Score Feature Wins on Kids Night
TIM ANDERSON & GARY HAARKLAU TOP FIELD!
Fairchild, WI; July 24, 2010 – The racing continued this evening at Marshfield Motor Speedway with all divisions racing, and the children treated to kid’s night at the races with race car rides, bike giveaways, and a Frisbee toss sponsored by the Woman Concerned for Auto Racing.
Mother nature put a monkey wrench into tonight’s racing for the Super Late Models and Super Stocks. Earlier in the morning, the speedway received over 3 ½ inches of rain causing the water to bubble up through the blacktop, in turns 1 & 2. Track officials worked feverishly to cure the problem, but the rains begun to fall again only compounding the problem, hence, track promoter Wayne Brevik made the decision to run double features next Saturday night, for these two divisions. Super Lates and Super Stocks were able to get their preliminary races in, racing their respective Dash 4 Cash and heat races. In Super Late Model action, Jim Sauter, Jr. edged out Ben Pettis to earn the Miller Fast Time Award. Chad Selk won the LiveWire Energy Chews Dash 4 Cash, with Brian Goodwin and Adam White capturing heat wins. In the D & D Amusement Games Super Stocks division, Mike Gwidt earned fast time honors, with Mark Langreck topping the field in the LiveWire Energy Chews Dash 4 Cash. Scott Luck edged out Marv Flick and Ernie Schlough to take home top honors in super stock heat action. Next week’s racing action will begin with super late model and super stock make up features, followed by the regularly scheduled racing events slated for Bill Shermin Memorial Night.
The 4-Cylinders started the racing action tonight with their first of two feature events, as it was double feature night for the division. Eau Claire, WI driver Paul Berg drove off to a large lead in the 20-lap feature event. Attempting to chase Berg down was Dennis Goetsch and Steve Hauser. Steve Hauser spent extra time this week setting his car up for the double feature night, and it appeared to help as he looked extremely fast. Hauser edged by Goetsch on lap five to earn the runner up spot. Hauser cut Berg’s lead down to one-car length on lap 13 and took over the top spot one lap later. With Steve Hauser now in command, Denny Goetsch was looking to close on Berg for the second spot. In the race end however, Berg held on to the runner-up position to feature winner, Steve Hauser. Goetsch finished third, with Derk Hauser and Boyd, WI driver Don Dunnow finishing fourth and fifth respectively.
Taking the early lead in the second feature was point leader Derk Hauser. Moving to second getting by pole sitter Bryan Langreck was Paul Berg. With Derk Hauser cruising out front, the battle on the track was between Paul Berg, Dennis Goetsch, and Steve Hauser. On lap 14, Goetsch powered by Berg to take over the second position. With Derk Hauser extending his lead, Steve Hauser was able to drive by Berg for the third spot, with 4 laps remaining in the 20-lap feature event. Once the checkered flag flew, it was all Derk Hauser, capturing yet another, feature win. Goetsch, who ended up having a fantastic night at the track, finished in the second position. Steve Hauser, Paul Berg, and young Bryan Langreck, completed the top five finishers here tonight in feature #2 for the 4-Cylinders.
The Bandits were treated to double feature points here tonight at Marshfield Motor Speedway. Tim Anderson was looking to cut into Harry Bell’s point lead, and did exactly that earning top honors in qualifying and his heat. Lee Gray held the early lead in the Bandit feature that was until Roger Cochrane decided to take over the helm. Working his way through the field was Tim Anderson. Anderson worked his way past Lee Gray, bringing Harry Bell with him. Anderson’s car appeared to be able to run the low line with ease. Anderson worked his way to the inside of Roger Cochrane with three laps remaining. The two drivers raced side by side with Anderson able to edge by Cochrane for the feature win. Harry Bell had a very respectable third place finish with Lee Gray and Matt Phelps rounding out the top five.
Gary Haarklau built on his point lead in the Junkyard Warrior division winning top honors in qualifying, his heat, and the feature. Coletta Gomes and Charlie Nickel finished second and third respectively, in all events.
Next week, it’s Bill Shermin Memorial Night at the races. With the point races heating up, and double features in the super late model and super stocks divisions, it should prove to be a very exciting night at the races!
