FRANCIS CREEK, Wis. (May 15) – A week after graduating from college, Kelsy Hayes taught her Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod foes a lesson at 141 Speedway.
Hayes led every lap of the Friday feature for her career first local victory. Hayes had her hands full throughout the 20-lapper, first holding off Josh Lambert and Hunter Parsons and then denying Kevin Bethke in the later circuits.
Last-corner finishes are always a blast for the fans and for the winning side of finish. The IMCA Xtreme Motorsports Modified finale saw Johnny Whitman edge Shawn Kilgore by a bumper. The local win was the defending champion’s first of the season.
Larry Karcz Jr. got back to winning in his second week back in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars after an off-season accident. A fog-shortened Mach-1 Sport Compact feature saw Brian Johnson pick up his first win of the season.
