Wedelstadt storms at Seymour 

By Dave Panske

SEYMOUR, Wis. (Aug. 23) – After one rain delay, a track prep session and three tries at starting the race, Mike Wedelstadt was the Budweiser IMCA Modified winner at Seymour Speedway.

Rain early in the day and then again right as the first feature was taking the green flag caused track work headaches. Modifieds helped work the surface back in and were bumped back later in the program.

Trevor Spaulding led the opening lap. Wedelstadt took command on the second circuit and immedi­ately opened a lead on the bunched field behind.  Benji LaCrosse pulled into the runner-up and set out to reel in the leader, nearly a straight away ahead.

The lone caution on lap nine set up a great battle up front.  Wedelstadt continued to lead with LaCrosse right behind. LaCrosse tried several lines to get an advantage on Wedelstadt but it wasn’t until lap 14 when he was able to pull inside and set up a five-lap, side-by-side battle with the lead going back and forth.

Wedelstadt prevailed and again took sole possession of the top spot as the white appeared and collected his second feature win of the season. LaCrosse was right behind at the finish.

Brandon Czarapata led from lap eight to the end of the Coors Light IMCA Stock Car feature. Jeremy Cota was first in the O’Reilly Auto Parts IMCA Northern SportMod main event.
