The best way to get around the Slinger Super Speedway is normally on the low side of the high banked quarter mile oval. Cars that can run well on the high side are usually a force to be reckoned with. Yet this season, the high side has proven to be a slippery situation for those who dare risk it.

Most people think of retirement when you get to be 64 years of age. Most people that age do not compete against people young enough to be their children or even grand children for that matter. Sponsors have a tendency to go with youth over experience and they say “It’s a young man’s game.”

Despite not having won a feature since 2007, and only running a limited schedule, Al Schill, who is a youthful 64 years of age, proved that experience can still compete with youth, as he captured the win in the Harley Davidson 60 at the Slinger Super Speedway Sunday night.

“It’s been a few years, I think since ’08 since I won one,” said Schill in Victory Lane. “Last night my buddy Ted Dolhun won one at Plymouth, the first time in nine years. He’s 64 years old, and I’m 64 so I’m gonna celebrate tomorrow night at the radio show.”

He is referring to his scheduled appearance on the Racing Round-up radio show, and winning the feature should make for a much more exciting show.

Mike Egan and Conrad Morgan paced the field of 18 cars to the green flag, with Egan gaining the advantage on lap 3. Egan worked the inside to get around Morgan while Schill ducked under Dennis Prunty to take over third. Morgan got stuck on the high side, as the inside line slowly made its way around, hanging him out to dry.

Egan would pace the field until the yellow flew on lap 11 when leaking fluid from the car of Steve Apel wreaked havoc for a number of cars.

Once the race resumed, Schill would get by Egan on the high side of turn two, when Egan got loose entering the corner. Schill would slowly pull away and build a lead of several car lengths.
