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.

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.”

Slinger, Wis., June 19—Jeremy Lepak and Brad Mueller slugged it out over the final laps of the PMF Landscape Supply Scout Night 75 Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway before Lepak edged Mueller by a half car-length for the victory.

“I didn’t want to touch Brad (Mueller), I don’t like racing like that, “Lepak told the crowd after the aggressive battle for the win that saw both drivers leave their marks on each other’s cars, “I wanted to be able to pass him clean, I knew we had the car to do it. I knew if I could get up on his bumper, he was pushing and pushing harder and I knew eventually I could get the run underneath him, I just had to be patient.” “I can’t say I’m real happy with him there at the end, I thought he raced me a lot harder than I raced him, but I think me and Brad are pretty good friends so I think we’ll work this deal out.”
