By Scott Owen

SHAWANO, WiS. (June 21) – Jerry Wilinski won his second IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified feature of the season Saturday at Shawano Speedway.

Sophomore speedster Chad Olson grabbed the lead on lap one, then held off charges by veterans Eddie Muenster and Wilinski.

Wilinski, who started ninth, made his pass for the lead on lap 12. Wilinski led to the end while Olson, Muenster, Marcus Yarie, Cody Hudson, and Mark Weisnicht waged a great battle for the next five spots on the track.

At the end it was Wilinski, Muenster, Yarie, Hudson, Weisnicht, and Olson making up the top six in a race that ran green to checkered.

Travis VanStraten won his second straight race and took home $700 after winning the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature after post-race disqualification of the apparent winner.

Brandon Nygaard led the first two laps of the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature before Jordan Bartz took the lead away on lap three.

It would be all Bartz for the rest of the race. Joey Taycher tried to track her down but Bartz was uncatchable. It was the first win of the year for the second generation racer.
