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.”
