Steve Apel has had a challenging season at the Slinger Super Speedway in 2012. The challenges of gambling on different setups. The challenges of dealing with adversity. The challenges of worrying about his father’s illness. As well as the challenge of proposing to his long time girlfriend.

Each and every time Apel has survived those challenges and thrived on it. Not only did he take each challenge head on, he took the checkered flag in the Pepsi Challenge 60.

When things are going well it looks easy and when they are not it’s been a struggle. Apel’s answer to that is just as straightforward as his driving.

Slinger, Wis., July 15—Dennis Prunty survived a torrid battle with Steve Apel and then held off Jeff Holtz to capture his fourth super late model feature victory of the season in the YP.Com Yellow Pages 50 Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.

Rob Braun and Jeff Holtz paced the field to the green flag with Holtz getting the jump from the outside lane to pace the early laps as the caution flag quickly waved on lap three for debris on the racetrack. Holtz chose the inside line for the restart and immediately charged to the front as Braun struggled on the outside, allowing Dennis Prunty to slip underneath him for second. Conrad Morgan and Steve Apel also made their way around Braun on the inside as up front, Prunty began to pressure Holtz for the lead by using the high lane to pull alongside.

“This feels good, “Prunty exclaimed from victory lane after turning back a strong challenge from Zack Riddle before taking the win over Gregg Pawelski and John DeAngelis Jr., “Zack Riddle had one of the fastest cars out there and I gave him the outside…he didn’t want the outside but he wasn’t getting the inside from me.”
