Slinger, Wis., Aug 12—A week after finding themselves wrecked against the first turn wall, Dennis Prunty and Steve Apel fought for the victory in the 50-lap super late model main event Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway, with Prunty edging Apel at the stripe for his fifth feature victory of the season.

“My guys worked their ass off all week in the shop putting this thing back together and I’ve got to thank everyone of them,” Prunty stated from victory lane as both drivers spent the last week making major repairs to their cars.

“We just got stuck in traffic a little bit, “Apel explained following his close second place finish, “We had the fastest car on the track but just couldn’t come home with the victory.”

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.
