Slinger, Wis., May 22—Jeremy Lepak took advantage of a late race caution to charge around Jeff Holtz for the lead, en route to capturing his first feature win of the season in the 75-lap Pepsi Challenge Series Round One super late model main event Sunday afternoon at the Slinger Super Speedway.

Holtz jumped out to an early lead and paced the first 38 laps, enjoying a comfortable advantage of nearly a half lap before the yellow flag waved for a spin in turn four, allowing Lepak and the field to close in for the restart. As racing resumed, Lepak worked the outside to take command of the race and then held off Holtz’s charges as the leaders worked lapped traffic late in the event.

Slinger, Wis., May 8—For the second consecutive week, Steve Apel drove to Victory Lane after scoring a convincing win in the 50-lap late model Mother’s Day feature event Sunday evening at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“These guys with this team build an awesome car, “Apel stated after capturing his second feature win in as many weeks, “I have to say ‘Thanks’ and ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ to my mom, I forgot to get her something, but I guess I can get something now.”

Slinger, Wis., May 1—With ten laps to go in the Miller Lite 120, Steve Apel’s car was airborne with its front wheels off the ground, but by the time the checkered flag flew, it was parked in Victory Lane with Apel celebrating a victory in a wild season-opening event super late model feature Sunday afternoon at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“That was insane,” a noticeably excited Apel beamed afterwards, “That was the hardest race I’ve ever raced…I wasn’t sure if the car was still in one piece after I got up in the air…it was rough but it paid off.”
