Slinger, Wis., Aug. 7—After leaving the familiar blue #40 car at home this week, Jeremy Lepak promptly drove the red one to victory lane after passing Dennis Prunty on the outside with seven laps to go in the 60-lap super late model feature Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway to notch his fifth main event win of the season.

“It’s unbelievable to bring out a totally different race car and be this good,” Lepak said afterwards, “It was just unbelievable and scary fast.” “The blue car doesn’t like the outside,” Lepak continued, “but with this one here, I was a little nervous about going up there and trying it but when I went up there I couldn’t believe the grip I had with this car and I don’t have that with the blue car. That definitely was a key to the win.”


Jeremy Lepak Super Late Model Feature WinnerJeremy Lepak Super Late Model Feature Winner"Jeremy Lepak has been hard to catch this season at the Slinger Super Speedway. Despite an unusually poor qualifying session, Lepak was able to outrun Lowell Bennett and Jon Reynolds Jr. to score his fourth victory of the season, in taking the checkers in the Suburban Motors Harley Davidson 70.

“It’s about time we had some luck to go our way,” said Lepak from Victory Lane. “Last week ended a three week string where I was leading with two different race teams and something broke. I just kept telling these guys to keep their heads up and the luck was going to turn around for us. These guys do everything for me and I really appreciate it.”

Randy Schuler and Chris Blawat led the field to the green flag. Schuler would get the advantage at the drop of the green flag, but wouldn’t make it around to complete the first lap. Blawat nudged Schuler in turn four causing Schuler to spin and bring out the first yellow. Since the lap was not completed, it was decided to start the race from the top. However, Schuler would restart from the rear due to having to pit to repair the cosmetic damage to his car. Rob Braun also suffered cosmetic damage and returned with Schuler to the rear of the field.

Slinger, Wis., July 24—Mike Egan raced around Jeremy Lepak with ten laps to go and drove to victory in the 75-lap Pepsi Challenge Series Round Two super late model feature Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway for his first main event win of the season.

“I was thinking that we’re going to be second and it would be a great race in the Pepsi Challenge deal and all of a sudden we came out of turn two and Jeremy’s (Lepak) car wiggled and I don’t know what happened but I went by,” Egan stated describing the winning pass on lap 65, “then it was like…Holy Toledo!”

Slinger, Wis., July 17—James Swan led the final 26 laps and held off heavy hitters Steve Rubeck, Zack Riddle, and Jeremy Miller to capture his first career Big 8 Late Model Series victory Sunday night in the Old Wisconsin King of the Highbanks 88 at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“The first couple of laps the car was really good then it started getting loose, then it would come right back to me and I would reel those guys in,” an exhausted Swan told the crowd while sitting on his car in victory lane following a hot night, “Then the yellow would come out and we had to go through the whole process again over and over and over, then finally when it counted I was there.”

“I was tight in the center (of the corners) and loose off,” Rubeck said following his runner-up finish in his first trip to Slinger, “Jeremy (Miller) had me a couple times and Zack (Riddle) did a good job, everybody had a better car and I should have been fifth or sixth.” “with it being tight in the center I figured I could go to the outside, “Rubeck continued explaining his move to choose the outside groove for the final restart, “I’m happy with second for the first time ever being here, this place is like Rockford (Speedway) on steroids.”

Slinger, Wis., July 10—Erasing his late race demons from a year ago, Kyle Busch muscled past Dave Feiler following a restart with 26 laps to go and drove to his first victory in the Miller Lite Nationals 200-lap super late model main event Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“The restarts were tricky and I didn’t know whether I wanted the bottom or the top as neither one of them was working for me for the first two laps but then my car would really come in,” Busch stated from victory lane after playing cat-and-mouse games with Feiler on several late race restarts before sweeping into the lead for good as racing resumed on lap 174.

Slinger, Wis., July 3—Dave Feiler took the lead on lap 64 and drove to victory over Josh Wallace to capture his third super late model feature triumph of the season Sunday night at the Singer Super Speedway in the caution-free Keith’s Marina 85.

“This place is really incredible, “Feiler exclaimed from victory lane, “We’ve had a car just like this all year long but haven’t had very much luck, but we’ll start with three (wins) and we’ll do one at a time or whatever it takes. We’ve just got to take one race at a time and if we do our homework at home and can beat the luck thing, I think we have a really good piece here.”

Josh Wallace launched to the lead from the pole position in the opening laps as Jon Reynolds Jr., Eric Fransen, Ross Kenseth, and Lowell Bennett lined up behind him. Wallace was able to stretch out his advantage as Reynolds and Fransen raced alongside each other for second with Fransen claiming sole possession of the spot by lap five. Fransen made the outside lane work to grab second place and Bennett followed in his tracks, running the high lane to get by Reynolds for third with Jeremy Lepak moving up to challenge in the outer lane. Lepak also made his way around Reynolds as Kenseth also jumped to the top to make his way forward. Further back, Dave Feiler began his trek toward the front, snapping up two positions by working the low line to get around both Steve Apel and Conrad Morgan.
