Slinger, Wis., Aug. 21— Lowell Bennett survived an intense Pomp’s Fan Appreciation Night 70-lap super late model feature Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway to capture his first main event victory of the season.

“It’s been such a long time and this team of mine has tried so hard,” Bennett told the crowd from victory lane after recovering from an earlier incident that sent him to the back of the field before driving to the win, “Tonight I just counted it out and said ‘there’s no way we’re going to get back up there’ and attrition took its toll and we had a pretty good race car.” “I think it’s got to do with this old race suit,” Bennett continued, explaining why he donned an old driving suit for the evening, “I forgot my race suit at home and dug this one out of the closet from the nineties and maybe I ought to wear this next week.”

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.”
