By Dave Panske

SEYMOUR, Wis. (Aug. 9) – Rod Snellenberger snapped Travis Van Straten’s winning streak and started one of his own Sunday at Seymour Speedway.

Snellenberger wound up in the infield following contact late in the Coors Light IMCA Stock Car main. The other driver involved was called for the incident and Snellenberger was put back in front of the field.

The battle continued for the final two laps with Snellenberger able to hold off Van Straten to capture his third feature win of the season and also end Van Straten’s string of three straight.

Jay Matthias worked his way to the front of the Budweiser IMCA Modified field on the 17th circuit and drove to his first Seymour checkers since Aug. 18 of 2013.

Championship contender Mike Wedelstadt was kayoed in an early six-car melee.

Jeremy Cota was the O’Reilly Auto Parts IMCA Northern SportMod winner.

All feature winners were presented with the five-foot tall tall, Kim Parsons Memorial trophy, to promote organ and tissue donation.
