HEINZ HITS HAT TRICK WITH IMCA STOCK CAR WIN AT SEYMOUR SPEEDWAY

By Edward Anschutz

(Seymour, WI) August 11, 2013 Results- JJ Heinz hustled past Barry VanStraten with a handful of laps remaining in the IMCA Stock Car feature to score the win at Seymour Super Speedway. Heinz also completed a hat trick weekend by winning Friday at Luxemburg Speedway and Saturday at 141 Speedway. Other feature winners were Mike Wedelstadt (IMCA Modified), Joey Taycher (IMCA Sport Mod), Jerry Winkler (Street Stock) and Calvin Stueck (Sport Fours)

“Mr. Hello” Barry VanStraten looked to be well on his way to victory in the IMCA Stock Car main as he slipped by Brandon Gagnon on lap 2. VanStraten then set sail pulling away from the pack. Title contender JJ Heinz quickly diced through the field and began chopping away at VanStraten’s lead. Once to the back bumper Heinz just couldn’t find the grip to complete the pass as the duo race side by side. With only 5 laps remaining Heinz took hold of the lead and never let up cruising to his 2nd feature win of the season. Brandon Czarapata, VanStraten, Kyle Fredrick and Rod Snellenberger completed the top five. Snellenberger holds a slim 2 point edge over Heinz for the championship.

Joey Taycher’s second visit of the season in the IMCA Sport Mods turned into a successful one as he raced by Hunter Parsons on lap 7 for the lead. Taycher worked the cushion to perfection with a dominating win. Jeremy Cota tightened the points battle with a second place run, point leader Tracy Wassenberg was third, Andy Kleczka and JJ Anderson rounded out the top five. 

Mike Wedelstadt held off a hard charging Jason Czarapata to score his first feature of the season in the IMCA Modifieds. The contest went green to checker with Wedelstadt scoring a clean sweep by winning  his heat race earlier in the night. Czarapata padded his point lead with second, Jerry Wilinski was third, Jay Matthias fourth and Jamie Schmidt brought home fifth. 

In Street Stock action it was Jerry Winkler scoring his 7th feature win of the season. Point leader Jon Ashcraft was second, Gary Kasperek, Mert Summers and Aaron Melchert rounded out the top five. 

Calvin Stueck picked up his 4th feature win of the season in the Sport 4‘s. Andrew Meyerhofer crossed the line second but was disqualified for a rules infraction handing second place to Brad Wedde, Dean Dekeyser, Jeff Behm and Tyler Hungerford rounded out the top five.
