FRANCIS CREEK, Wis. (May 4) – Brian Cesar liked the idea of starting up front in the season-opening IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature at 141 Speedway.
He liked even better that every lap led was $30. Cesar decided to take charge of the show and led every lap en route to the 20 lap win.
Cesar had to take every challenge that former champion Brett Wenzel threw at him. Wenzel used various lines to try and get around Cesar but could never get enough momentum. Cesar took home $910 for the win which included lap leader money. Wenzel settled for second.
Benji LaCrosse already has his new car figured out early, dominating a stacked field of 38 IMCA Modifieds. The win netted him a $990 pay day, which included lap leader money and extra money from Ricky Lemmens.
A late caution set up a green, white, checkered finish in the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature, won by Ryan Lemieux.
Shaun Bangart won the 15-lap Mach-1 Sport Compact feature.
One hundred and fifty-three cars battled in the lidlifter at Francis Creek.
