LUXEMBURG, Wis. (June 13) – A win is a win anyway a driver can capture it. Eric Mahlik said that Friday night following the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified feature at Luxemburg Speedway.
Mahlik won after the leader spun out on the white flag lap.
Kyle Kudick used the top of the track to fend off the competition early. Mahlik grabbed the lead only to see the caution make it a no-go. When racing resumed and after a couple more cautions, Mahlik and Troy Jerovetz split Kudick for the lead.
Mahlik used the top of the track to lead at the line with Jerovetz charging in second. Jerovetz fell back for a few laps until his momentum came back and he took the lead with three laps remaining. Jerovetz lead with Mahlik outside as he took the white flag.
Jerovetz went into turn one fine but then spun to the infield. Mahlik was left alone in the lead and captured his first feature win of the season. James Tebon wound up second. Benji LaCrosse charged from 12th starting to third. Jason Czarapata increased his point lead with his fourth place run. Kudick fell to fifth.
Dave Bouche won his first local IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature o the season.
Tracy Wassenberg and Derek Moede added to their win totals in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, respectively.
