August 3, 2008; Marshfield, WI: – The Jack & Christy Fischer Memorial race night, presented by Miller Beer proved to be a great night of racing. Each of the feature winners received an extra special Jack & Christy Fischer award donated by Crabby Dave’s of Marshfield. Jason Weinkauf claimed the super late fast time and would go onto complete a clean sweep. Brian Weinfurter turned the quickest super stock lap in qualifying. Erin Schlough earned his first 4-cylinder fast time, Sam Sudduth with his second junkyard warrior quick time and Ryan Mork grabbed fast time and the pure stock feature win.

The super late model feature ran green to checkered. Jay VanDerGeest took the early lead for the first three circuits. Rory Melbinger was running strong in second for those three laps and then made his move to take the lead. Eugene Gregorich Jr. was close by in fourth. Gregorich made the pass stick to take second on lap five. The battle was on now between Dean LaPointe and VanDerGeest over the third spot. LaPointe stole third on lap seven while fast timer Jason Weinkauf was vying for fifth with Tim Hintz. Ten laps into the race, Weinkauf broke into the top five. Weinkauf steadily gained a position every few laps until lap 19 when he took the final spot, the lead from Melbinger. Jeff Weinfurter had worked his way to the front and was challenging LaPointe for fourth, finally taking the spot at the checkered. Jason Weinkauf won, taking home the Krings Motorsports feature win award, Melbinger second, Gregorich third, Weinfurter fourth and LaPointe fifth.

Special thanks to Jay VanDerGeest Cattle and Hartlebens’ Custom Cropping Service for sponsoring the additional super late model payout for the season.

The super stock feature was a rough one with lots of close racing. Seventeen supers took the green. Dave Pagels took charge of the field leading half the race. A close battle between Greg Matthews and Matt Raykowski lasted for nine laps over the second spot. Colin Reffner, Brian Weinfurter and Brian Back were on the charge to the front. A five car pile up ended the race for those five cars on lap ten. Pagels relinquished the lead to Weinfurter on the restart. Back was right behind and now set his sites on the lead. Reffner challenged back and reclaimed third. Back worked his way by Weinfurter with four to go. Back won taking home the Beway Race Products feature win award, Weinfurter second, Reffner third, Mike Gwidt fourth and Adam Krzykowski fifth.

There were four lead changes throughout the 4-cylinder feature. George Brandl took the first two laps. Don Dunow took the next six laps. Jeremiah Strauss was quickly moving to the front with Kyle Opelt and Ron Sischo in tow. Strauss took the lead on lap nine. Opelt sat third for a few laps while Brandl challenged back to take fourth from Sischo. Opelt passed Dunow for second and then used the next two laps to overtake Strauss for the lead. Opelt won, Strauss second, Dunow third, George Brandl fourth and Ricky Brandl fifth.

Matt Phelps led lap one of the junkyard warrior feature. Buddy Barrow then led the next six laps until Shawn Carpenter took the lead for the win. Kyle Rasmussen and Tim Anderson battled over the second position. Carpenter won, Rasmussen second, Anderson third, Sam Sudduth fast timer fourth, Dustin Paul fifth. The top three finishers of the feature win trophies compliments of Humbird Jackets & Embroidery Werks.

The first lap of the pure stock feature was led by Coletta Gomes. Gary Haarklau led the second lap. The following nine laps were led by Kyle Genett. Ryan Mork, fast timer then challenged for the lead, inching ahead of Genett for the win on the last lap. Mork first, Genett second, Haarklau third, Dean Ashbacher fourth and Troy Engman fifth.
