Troy Springborn would set the pace early in the Late Model feature, that’s when Paul Parker would make a play for the lead on lap 12, charging up from his seventh place starting spot. The duo would run door to door for the next two laps before Parker would take command of the race. Parker would enter heavy lap traffic with 5 laps to go and Terry Anvelink would close the gap but it was too little too late as Parker would cash in and take the win ahead of Anvelink. Nick Anvelink would come from his 20th starting position to place third. Springborn would sette for fourth, and Justin Ritchie would cross the checkers fifth.

Second generation racer Mike Mullen would pass relative Scott Mullen and win the feature, taking home a cool $600.

Scott Mullen would use his front row starting position to take command early in the IMCA Modified feature. Shawn Kilgore and Mike Mullen would wage battle for second place allowing Scott to pull away to a sizable lead. Mike would work to the inside of Kilgore and began to close on the leader. Just before half way Mike would catch Scott and execute a clean pass taking the lead and never looking back. Benji LaCrosse would rally late and finish second, followed by Brian Mullen, Mike Wedelstadt and Russ Reinwald.

Shawn Wagner continues his domination of Sunday nights picking up his fourth feature win in a row.

Kyle Fredrick would wage battle with Mitch Stankowski in the opening circuits of the IMCA Stockcar feature. The duo would exchange the lead several times until lap 10. That’s when defending track champion Shawn Wagner would go three wide using to low line and take the lead. Wagner would pull away and was never challenged leaving the battle for second between Fredrick and Rod Snellenberger. When the checkers flew Snellenberger would take second, Fredrick third, Greg Gutt and Stankoski would round out the top five.

State point leader Troy Jerovetz would lead every lap en route to his second feature win of the season.

Troy Jerovetz would jump to the top side as the green flew, quickly passing 5 cars and to take command of the IMCA Sport Mod main on lap 1. A caution on lap 11 would bunch the field. Johnny Whitman and Eric Arneson would be right behind. But when the green flew Jerovetz would again pull away and cruise to the checkers. Whitman would place second, Arneson third, Brad Lautenbach fourth and fifth for Rod Solem who started 20th.

Aaron Melchert would out duel point leader Matt Drawenek for his first win of the season.

Last weeks feature winner Tony Schwamer would set the early pace in the Street Stock feature. A series of quick cautions would keep the field tight as points leader Matt Drawenek would begin his march through the field. Drawenek would suffer a flat tire in his heat and started 24th in the feature. It only took Drawenek 6 laps to pass 23 cars and take the lead from Schwamer. Drawenek’s time up front was short lived as two laps later Aaron Melchert would sling shot by using the high groove to take the lead. Phil Hiles, Schwamer and Drawenek would keep heavy pressure on the leader but Melchert would never waver and went on to pick up the win. Drawenek would place second, Hiles third, Schwamer fourth and defending track champion Todd Everard fifth.

Josh Mroczkowski would survive a late race caution to win the four-cylinder feature.

Next Sunday, June 6 racing will resume at 6 p.m. Seymour Speedway is located 15 minutes west of Green Bay off state highway 54 at the Outagamie County Fairgrounds. The track phone is (920) 833-7726.
