Slinger, Wis., June 26—After taking the lead following a late-race restart, Steve Apel held off a hard charging Travis Dassow to win his second super late model feature of the season in the YP.Com 70 Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.
“That’s what everybody comes out here for…to watch awesome racing,” Apel told the crowd from victory lane, “Travis Dassow ran me clean and he could have moved me easily. I gave him the outside and tried to give him as much room as I could. I didn’t want to block him for the win, he had the outside and just didn’t have enough to get out there to get by.”
“Steve (Apel) did exactly what he had to do,” Dassow said after narrowly missing the win, “He knew I had a good car coming off the bottom and he put the car where he needed to be where I couldn’t get around him. We’ve got to work on the car a little bit, but this thing’s a rocketship.”
