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.
