LUXEMBURG, Wis. (June 8) – In the racing world, it’s an impressive feat to win two races in a row, but to do it on back-to-back nights on two distinctly different surfaces is something rarely seen anymore.

Eddie Muenster pulled it off, though, scoring a late model win on Thursday night and following it up with his first IMCA Modified win of the season Friday at Luxemburg Speedway.

Chase Parker led early on, with Muenster and Brian Mullen hot on his heels. Parker did his best to keep the veterans at bay but Muenster eventually found his way past for the lead.

Mullen also passed Parker and began to pester Muenster for the top spot. As Parker began to fade, Shawn Kilgore and Mike Mullen came from deep in the field to join the top four. At the end, Muenster held off Mullen for the win followed by 12th starting Kilgore, and 13th starting Mike Mul­len. Parker held on for a strong fifth place finish in the caution-free affair.

Brett Wenzel nearly equaled Muenster’s accomplishment, finishing third on the pavement on Thurs­day and then winning his first career IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature Friday.

Sawyer Haese survived a late-race charge by Todd Wiese to win the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature. Haese went wire-to-wire for the win.

T.J. Everard was dominant in Mach-1 Sport Compact action. Everard led all 15 laps of the race.
