Lowell Bennett won his first race of the season at the E.H. Wolf and Sons Memorial Day Special on Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway. With the winner of the last two Super Late Model features a little over a second behind him, Bennett led the final half of the eighty lap race on his way to the victory.

"Sometimes that first one is tough," said Bennett. "We made some changes this week, we went to a two barrel carburettor from a four barrel. That makes a whole lot of difference in the handling of the car and I'm kind of glad we did that."

The Super Late Model race started with Al Schill and Steve Apel on the front row. The veteran and young gun battled back and forth for the first ten laps with veteran Schill coming out on top. Schill paced the field as Bennett, who had fallen back to sixth worked his way forward using the high groove to pick up positions. On lap forty, Bennett found himself in second and a lap later made his move past Schill with an outside pass out of turn two to take Brian Holtz winner of the Midwest Sportsman FeatureBrian Holtz winner of the Midwest Sportsman Featurethe lead. Prunty was also moving forward and took command of second place with thirty laps remaining. Racing through traffic, Prunty chased Bennett but was unable to make up any ground. Matt Kocourek, who set quick time, and Dash winner Mike Egan had a spirited battle with Tommy Hromadka and Conrad Morgan. Kocourek finished in third and Egan fourth when the checkers flew. Winner of the season opener, Eric Fransen returned and improved five spots from his starting spot to finish in fifth. Jeff Holtz won the semi-feature race and along with Chris Ratajczyk transferred to the feature.

“I feel exhausted, “Prunty stated from victory lane before teasing the crowd with, “I heard a lot of boos, let’s hear it again…Dennis Prunty won!” That drew a strong response from the crowd with both supporters and detractors voicing their emotions with a mixture of pros and cons. “I don’t know,” Prunty continued, “I think it’s 50-50 right now but it doesn’t matter because I just give her hell every week.”

“Honestly, that was Scott Schoeni’s race,” Prunty said, describing the battle for the win, “It was a greasy night out there with this humidity that makes it slippery and it’s tough to race side by side but we did it.”

On the appropriately named Madhouse Night, the 18th Annual Bob Fish Buick GMC Alan Kulwicki Memorial featured a “madhouse” finish as Dennis Prunty and Lowell Bennett swapped both paint and the lead over the final laps before Prunty edged ahead with an outside charge at the finish to score the victory.


This Sunday May 16th "The Show Stopper" Chris Fleming and Jonathan "Jon-Boy" Brown will invade Slinger Speedway. They are two of the stars from History Channels hit TV show MADHOUSE. The History Channel went behind the scenes to show millions of viewers what grass roots racing is all about in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Fleming and Brown became over night stars simply showing folks what they love to do, drive race cars. Over 25,000 fans packed the flat 1/4 mile race track for the 2010 opening day event the MADHOUSE stars race at weekly. The Show Stopper says, "it's hard to get any work done on your car in the pit area there are so many fans wanting autographs and taking pictures, it's unbelievable!" Both Fleming and Brown say there is a price to pay for fame, and that is being known where ever you go, but for now it's a lot of fun.

Chris Fleming calls himself "The Show Stopper" and says, "I am as tough as they come!" The Show Stopper will be driving a car prepared by Conrad Morgan. Conrad is a six time champion and knows how to get a car around Slinger Speedway, so it's up to The Show Stopper to get the job done.
