Schwein, Gottschalk repeat at RPM Speedway 

By Mike Hughes

HAYS, Kan. (April 23) – Jakob Schwein and Daniel Gottschalk both made it two in a row in their respective divisions in racing action at RPM Speedway Saturday evening.

Schwein made it two in a row in the Cutting Edge Collision IMCA Sport Compact main event. Schwein led all 12 laps to make his way to the winner’s circle. Amber Bird finished in the runner-up spot, trailed by Brandon Wise, Toby Schwein and Billy Turner.

Gottschalk made it two in a row in the Golden B Hydra Drilling IMCA Northern SportMod feature. Brenden Damon took the early lead and appeared to have the race well in hand, but car problems sent him to the infield on lap eight, handing over the lead to Blaine Walt.

Walt’s lead was short-lived as Brian Davidson took the lead at the halfway mark of the 20-lap race. A caution on lap 15 put 11th starting Gottschalk behind Davidson on the restart and Gottschalk, who won Friday night at Oberlin, took advantage as he took the lead on the restart and held on for the win.

Walt finished second, followed by 17th starting Tracy Holloway, Trenton Kleweno and Dakota Sproul.

Bruce Plumisto took the lead from Austin Carter on lap nine of the Advantage Glass Plus IMCA Stock Car feature and held off a charge by Kyle Pfeifer, the Friday night feature winner at Oberlin, for the win.

The NAPA Auto Parts/Gib’s Auto Supply IMCA Modified feature saw Clay Money make his way to the winner’s circle. Money took the lead from Mike Petersilie and drove on for the win.

The 20-lap Golden Plains Trucking IMCA Hobby Stock feature saw Robert Leonard lead the entire distance in the caution-filled event.

The evening’s races were dedicated to Cody Younger, lost but not forgotten.
