Seymour August 24- Racing action at the Seymour Speedway enters the second last week and all of the IMCA divisions will be running their final point night of the season this Sunday night.
Unless Jason Czarapata would have a critical problem Sunday night, he will lock up his second straight Budweiser IMCA Modified title by qualifying for the feature. He holds a 23 point lead over last weeks feature winner, Jay Matthias.
The Coors Light IMCA Stock Car division title will be decided tonight between 2 veteran drivers. John Heinz won the feature last week and moved into first place for the first time this season by a 1 point margin over Rod Snellenberger. Snellenberger had led the standings all season long and is looking for his 6th division track championship. Heinz picked up his third feature win of the year last week and is looking for his first career N.E.W. DIRT title.
The IMCA Sport Mod division is a three man race. Tracy Wasenberg has paced the standings all season long, but the past couple weeks have been tough on the Shawano driver. Jeremy Cota raced to his 4th feature win of the season last week and took over the point lead by 9 points over Wassenberg. Wassenberg is in a tie for second with another 4 time feature winner, Cody Hokenstad with 491 each. All three are very competitive and this should be an exciting battle to the final checker.
The Street Stocks and 4 Cylinders will be running point for the final 2 weeks.
Jon Ashcraft holds a 24 point advantage over his daughter Lexi with Mert Summers sitting third 25 points back. The division is very close but these three should make the race to the title an exciting one.
The 4 Cylinder chase tightened up the past couple weeks with defending champion, Calvin Stueck taking his first point lead a week ago, and extending it to 8 points with his 5th feature win of the season last week. Tyler Hungerford is the only one with a shot at taking the title away.
Along with the point battles this week, the Faster Pastor race returns this week featuring area clergy running for bragging rights. This will be the final race of the night.
The final 2013 appearance by the Spectator Eliminators will close the program.
Don’t forget. The final leg of the Summer Holiday Classic will take place next Sunday, September 1. The event features the WDLMA Late Models, running a 30 lap main event. All five of the regular weekly divisions will also compete. The IMCA divisions will be non sanctioned and will draw/redraw for the night.The Streets and 4 Cylinders will be running their final point night and will use the regular point average to decide the champions.
