Dale Prunty got the jump on his brother Dennis Prunty on a restart with just four laps remaining to steal the victory on Harley Nike Night at the Slinger Super Speedway. Although the Prunty brothers were running strong all race long, they capitalized when race leader Steve Apel suddenly slowed to a stop in turn four causing the yellow flag to come out with just those four laps remaining.

It was Dale Prunty’s first victory in over three years at Slinger.

Slinger, Wis., July 14—Rob Braun drove to his second super late model feature victory of the season Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway in the 60-lap Round Two of the Pepsi Challenge Series.

Braun charged into the lead from outside the front row at the drop of the green while polesitter Nick Wagner slotted into second ahead of Fred Winn, Lowell Bennett, and Dalton Zehr. The field quickly fell under the caution flag on lap three when Nick Ostberg spun off turn four. Braun edged ahead on the restart as Mike Egan swept into second after choosing the outside lane on the restart, leaving Wagner to settle into third. Behind the top three, Bennett and Winn raced side by side in a tussle over fourth with Zehr, Dennis Prunty, and Steve Apel close behind. With the leaders beginning to draw away slightly, Bennett finally broke through on the top lane and passed Winn for the position, bringing Prunty along with him and into fifth. Apel and Zehr also worked their way around Winn as well while Braun continued to show the way over Egan and Wagner. Further back, Dale Prunty and Dan Jung leaned on each other heavily for the seventh spot, exchanging door dings in the process which led to the caution flag waving on lap 27 when Jung’s car spun around off turn four and came to rest against the frontstretch wall as the result of a cut tire.

Slinger, Wis., July 2—Long after the races ended with the crowd filed out of the gates and the parking lots emptied, the quietness around the Slinger Super Speedway would normally be a time for Rich Bickle to reflect on a tremendous career at the world’s fastest ¼ mile oval after earlier crossing the finish line second behind Steve Apel in his final Slinger laps during the SuperSeal Nationals presented by Miller Lite.
