LaCrosse plays chess with Czarneski at Luxemburg

By Greg Aregoni

LUXEMBURG, Wis. (May 8) – Friday night was game night at Luxemburg Speedway, most nota­bly in the IMCA Modified division when Benji LaCrosse was king.

Russ Reinwald led the opening lap before heading down pit lane under caution. Tim Czarneski grabbed the top spot on the restart and pulled ahead of the field by half a straightaway. LaCrosse maneuvered through the field and got to the runner-up spot by lap 10.

LaCrosse ran down Czarneski and a game of chess ensued. LaCrosse tried multiple lines with the leader maintaining the top of the track. With two circuits remaining, the duo reached lapped traffic.

With the white flag in the air, Czarneski got behind a lapped vehicle on top of the track allowing LaCrosse to move to the bottom more quickly than the leader. LaCrosse stayed down low and got just enough bite to hold off Czarneski at the line.

Rod Snellenberger was the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winner. Todd Wiese topped the Karl Chevro­let Northern SportMods and Cody Junio led all 15 laps of the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock main event.
