SEYMOUR, Wis. (July 9) – For the second week in a row at Outagamie Speedway, Brian Mullen made a winning pass, this time on Jay Matthias, in the waning laps to win the IMCA Modified feature.
Matthias was the man to beat early in the main event, opening up a huge advantage. Mullen worked from row six, giving chase. As the race hit the midway point, Matthias worked the high side and Mullen worked down low. The duo raced wheel to wheel until Mullen took the top spot with three laps remaining.
Mullen scored the win while Matthias had to settle for second, Jamie Schmidt was third.
In IMCA Sunoco Stock Car action, Barry Streck paced the opening circuits with Kurt Olson and Trent Nolan giving chase. On lap 4 the trio crashed in turn one, resulting in a caution. Streck was done for the event and Olson and Nolan were sent to the tail of field.
This handed the lead over to Devin Snellenberger, who was immediately challenged by Chaz Van Ooyen.
With nine laps remaining, Van Ooyen completed the pass. A caution with five laps remaining kept the pressure on Van Ooyen from Kyle Frederick and Rod Snellenberger. Van Ooyen was up for the challenge, earning his first trophy of the season. Rod Snellenberger was second,
Jason Vandenberg went unchallenged for his first-ever Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature win at Outagamie Speedway.
Brian Johnson looked to have the Mach-1 Sport Compact feature locked up until he was collected by a lapped car with five laps remaining. This handed the lead over to Mitch Meier.
Meier lead the final laps to score another win.
