LUXEMBURG, Wis. (June 17) – Brandon Riedner loved his trip to Luxemburg Speedway.  He loved the trip so much he went home $1,099 richer courtesy of his 30-lap Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod John Soukup Memorial feature win.

Todd Wiese came into night as the defending race winner defending the home turf. Riedner came in as the visitor trying to steal the show and did just that.

Wiese led from the drop of the green flag and through a series of early cautions which allowed Riedner to join the race for the win.

Riedner showed his racer on lap 20 and made what proved to be winning move on lap 23.  Riedner flew past down low and into the lead. Wiese gave chase up on top and actually gained on the leader only to bobble with a couple laps remaining.

Wiese finished second, Lucas Lamberies finished third after starting 16th, point leader Chris Budzban finished fourth after starting 18th and Kyle Raddant was fifth.

Other winners included Lance Arneson in the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds and Evan Madden in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars.
