Update on Point Standings


Monday July 14- First, I would like to apologize for the mix up on the point sheets this past week.    I run the sheets and when I copied the points from the SpeedNet sight, I never checked the date, because it is “always” correct.

I was not made aware of the problem until Sunday.

Our staff went to download the information after the July 6 race and could not get a connection to work.    Further attempts also failed.   When they finally were able to contact SpeedNet, the problem came to be an update made on their end, that turned out to be NOT compatable with our older software.     It turns out, we are not the only track affected as this is a nationwide situation.

Our scorer, Brian, will be back this week and we are hoping to get things straightened out and updated. 

So we are aware and working to get it fixed.  We need to get the correct updates or possibly a new computer.

Even though the points are not updated on line, the program on the computer IS so all averages and lineups ARE correct at the track.

Watch the “as of” date on the web site so you know they are updated.  I will figure out the top 10 and try to get that posted on here today.

Again, I apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Dave Panske, Secretary




Seymour July 13 Results

Seymour July 13- A strange thing happened at the Seymour Speedway on Sunday…the Sun was Shinning and the temperature was perfect for a full nite of racing with Da Swamp Bar and Jackson Point Sports Bar joining forces to sponsor the action.     A total of 99 cars checked in to do battle before a great crowd.

After a last minute dose of track work the Turbo Blue Street Stocks took the track for their feature event.    Chase Parker took the lead for the opening lap before Lexii Ashcraft slipped inside on lap 2 to take charge.   Tony Everard, Jeff Dorshner, Alan Schluetter and Patty  Winkler were in line behind.   Ashcraft led to the first caution on lap 8.    Over the next 2 laps a series of 6 cautions kept the race in slow motion.   Schluetter took the lead for one lap and following a couple more cautions, the time ran out and  Scluetter took the lead with point leader, Jeff Jungwith, Ryan Blank Dorshner and Jonny Ashcraft behind.   Over the final 2 laps, Jungwirth was able to work inbto the top spot and  drove off to collect his n4th feature win of the season.   Blank, Schlueter, Dorshner, Jonny Ashcraft and Patty Winkler rounded out the top six.

John Berna set the pace until the lone caution in the Budweiser IMCA Modified feature on lap 4.   Point leader, Jason Czarapata had already moved into second for the restart and took over the lead under green.  Once I front, Czarapata took off to hide from the field.   Chad Bartel and Mike Mullen moved into the top three at the same time but could not keep pace with the leader.   Czarapata drove off to collect his 3rdstraight feature win and 4th overall.   Bartel and Mullen were spread out behind the leader with Mike Wedelstadt,  Jamie Schmidt and Berna     rounding out the top six.

A strong field of 23 Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars took the green with Chris Lowenhagen setting the pace followed by Jason Bork, Tom Riehl, Justin Jacobsen and Joe Schwister.  After several cautions on laps 4 – 6, Jacobsen oved into the top spot with Barry Van StraTEN,M Jeremy Wiitala, Bork and Chas Van Ooyen behind.   The restart also found point leader, Rod Snellenberger and Travis Van Straten in the back of the field.   Jacobsen ran the outside line and Barry Van Straten pulled even on the inside. For the final half of the race the pair ran side by side with Van Straten holding the slim lead.     From the restart, Travis Van Straten slowly picked hi way through traffic and with 5 laps remaining, pulled into 4th pace.   Barry and  Jacobsen were still side by side with  Wiitala right in the mix.  Jacobsen was scored the leader on lap 17 and as the white appeared

Travis stuck his nose to the inside of the leaders and was even making a 3 wide run for the lead entering turn three.   Out of 4 to the checkers, Travis was able to nip the other two drivers at the line to collect his second feature win of the season.   Barry took second with Jacobsen third.   Wiitala held off Kyle Frederick for  4th with Van Ooyen rounding out the top six.

William Edler set the pace for 2 circuits in the IMCA Sport Mod main before a caution on lap 3.   Joey Taycher came from mid pack and swept into the top spot on the restart.  Colten Von Hierden took over second on lap 8 and closed the gap on the leader.   On lap 11, Van Hierden had secured the lead and Taycher kept close until the final 5 laps when Van Hirden was able top pull away and earned his first career Seymour Speedway feature victory.  Taycher, a 2 time feature winner this season, settled for the runner up finish with Jordan Bartz, point leader, Jeremy Cota, Clint Forstner and Lucas Lamberies rounding out the top six.

The 4 Cylinder main went non stop with Jeremy Czarapata taking the ealy lead and set thepace until lap 9 when Kasey Gross took over the lead.   Tanner Westphal moved into second one lap later, and the pair ran side by side to the finish with Gross taking his first feature checkered flag at Seymour by inches at the finish line over Westphal.   Czarapata collected third place with Brandon Kaye, Cody Hungferford and Harley Diedrick rounding out the top six.

Racing continues next Sunday before a week off for the Outagamie County Fair on July 27.
