By Edward Anschutz

(Seymour, WI) May 19, 2013 Results- Jay Matthias made a late trip to Seymour Super Speedway a successful one charging from row 6 winning the feature in the IMCA Modifieds. Other feature winners were John Heinz (IMCA Stock Car), Brett Swedberg (Fastrak Late Model) Tracy Wassenberg (IMCA Sport Mod), John Ashcraft (Street Stock) and Brian Johnson (Sport Four). Next Sunday May 26 will feature WDLMA Late Models with the first installment of the three Summer Holiday Classics. Action kicks off at 5PM.

In the Spectator Eliminator Rob Krull took a very wild ride en route to victory which ended with his cherry 1985 Chevy Monte Carlo getting T-Boned. Well it was cherry, Krull lost the handle in turn 3 this left Beau Schroeder with no where to go in his 1970 Monte Carlo slamming head on into the passenger door of Krull to shriek of the crowd. Krull beat Ben Rotter in the final race to take the overall win. Jordan Lesser and “The Land Shark” Jeff Schroeder also competed in the event.

WILD finish at Seymour Opener

Seymour, May 5- N.E.W. DIRT opened their 30th Anniversary season Sunday night at the Seymour Speedway with a stout field of 121 cars checking in to do battle on the 1/3 mile banked clay oval.

The Street Stocks opened the feature portion of the program with Jon Ashcraft of Oshkosh settling into the top spot  on the first lap.   Following a lap 7 caution, Jerry Kope and Mert Summers joined the leader and the trio pulled away from the field in a tight battle for the lead.   Kope dove to the inside and there was a three wide battle for most of the nest lap, with Kope emerging as the leader on lap 16.
