Kilgore and Frederick Win on Last Corner
Close finishes is how you could sum up the night at Seymour Super Speedway Sunday night. 136 cars competed in the five divisions on Da Swamp Bar night.
Shawn Kilgore used his pole position starting spot to secure the lead in the Budweiser IMCA Modified feature. Benji LaCrosse made his way from third to the tail of Kilgore right off the drop of the green flag. LaCrosse would shadow Kilgore for the next 16 laps to wait for a bobble. The bobble finally came with four laps to go as LaCrosse darted inside Kilgore out of turn two. Kilgore fell in behind LaCrosse and with two laps to go moved to the outside of LaCrosse. With Kilgore on top, the momentum off the corners would close him in on Lacrosse’s front horns as the two crossed to take the white flag. The duo ran side by side until out of turn four when Kilgore would find just enough bite up high to take the win. LaCrosse would settle in second for the second time this season. Brian Mullen would run to a third place finish. Russ Reinwald would finish fourth and point leader Jason Czarapata fifth. The race went green flag to checker flag.

The Street Stock feature kicked the main events off with Shawn Hayden and Tony Everard leading the pack. Hayden would continue to lead with Everard right in tow. Andy Gross made his way quickly from fifth to second and set his sights on Hayden. Gross would eventually catch Hayden and a game of cat and mouse ensued. Gary Kasperek would make it a three-way dance with five laps to go. Gross could charge on the outside of Hayden with two laps remaining and make his trip from Menominee a successful one taking the feature win. Kasperek would come home with second place money. Hayden would finish third followed by Dan Gracyalny and Phil Hiles. The race went green flag to checker flag.
Brad Theys used his pole position to jump out to a good lead in the IMCA Northern Sportmod Feature. 2011 champ Brad Lautenbach would make his way to second and start tracking down Theys. Lautenbach would eventually work his way inside Theys but an eventual spin would end Lautenbach’s hopes for triumph. They’s would continue to lead through a series of midrace cautions and hold off challenges from the likes of Eric Mahlik and Tracy Wassenberg. They’s would go on to win his second straight Spring Thaw race at the speedway after a green, white, checker finish.
