Must See Sprint Series Feature Winner Mike LarrisonMust See Sprint Series Feature Winner Mike LarrisonBy Dan Margetta
Slinger, Wis., Aug. 21—Coatsville, Indiana’s Mike Larrison charged to his first series win in the lightening-quick 60-lap Must See Racing Extreme Sprint Series main event Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.

Kyle Flint launched to the lead as the 18-car field thundered toward the green flag while Hank Lower slotted into second place ahead of Jason Cox, Larrison, and Jason Blonde. Flint began to draw away from the field, extending his lead to a sizeable advantage over Lower, while Cox, Larrison, and Blonde lined up behind him. The extreme pace around the high-banked speedway took it’s toll by lap 18 as Blonde exited the event with problems, moving series point leader, Troy DeCaire into fifth place, just in front of fast qualifier and new world record holder Jeff Bloom, who advanced from his tenth starting spot to sixth. With Flint comfortably out front, a bobble by Lower in turn three on lap 26 caused Cox to take evasive action and the move sent his machine looping around to collect the turn four wall, drawing a caution flag that erased Flint’s huge advantage. As racing resumed, Flint maintained his lead while Larrison moved into second place and began to work his way around the lapped machines between himself and the leader.


World Record Qualifying at 5 pm – August 21

Slinger, Wis., August 15—Mike Egan turned back a strong late race challenge from Brad Mueller to capture his first super late model feature victory in five years in the 60-lap second round of the KFC/Pepsi Challenge Series Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“Towards the end there, the car was getting looser and looser and I tell you, we ran it into the corners so hard I couldn’t believe it stuck and somehow I got ahead,” Egan stated from victory lane, “My spotter told me I really had to pedal because (Mueller) was coming and I was giving it all I had, I didn’t have anything left.”

Slinger, Wis., August 8— Lowell Bennett prevailed in an intense battle with Steve Apel and drove away to his fifth victory of the season in the 60-lap super late model feature Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“I tell you what, he (Apel) was really strong, “Bennett described racing with Apel for the lead, “I saw him get loose a couple times and that’s how I got in there on the inside of him. Hats off to him, he ran me hard and that’s fun racing, I just love racing like that.”

Slinger, Wis., August 1—Dennis Prunty took advantage of a late caution flag when Lowell Bennett’s engine expired and held off Conrad Morgan in a photo finish to win the Kwik Trip 60 Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“I guess Lowell Bennett blew an engine and I ran the outside of the 16 car (Steve Apel) for a long time and then I had to start on the inside of Conrad Morgan, “Prunty said, reviewing the exciting race from victory lane, “man his car has got some horsepower and it was tough holding him off, I drove my ass off.”

Bennett appeared to have the race in hand as the laps wound down, setting sail to a commanding lead over Apel, Prunty, and Morgan when suddenly his car came to an abrupt stop in turn one with eleven laps to go, belching smoke and flames as the power plant appeared to come unglued. With the current track point leader sent to the pits, Apel took over the top spot for the restart, choosing the inside lane to take the green flag with Prunty lined up to his outside. Apel and Prunty headed into turn one nearly even as racing resumed and the two raced door to door for the lead with neither able to gain any advantage while behind them Scott Schoeni and Conrad Morgan staged their own battle for third. Prunty edged ahead slightly on the outside entering turn one on lap 56 while Apel’s car slid loose as he entered the corner and looped around in turn two to produce the caution flag with just four laps remaining, setting up a shoot-out to the finish between Prunty, Morgan, Schoeni, and Egan. Prunty chose the inside lane for the restart but as the field came up to speed, Morgan held his ground on the outside and once again an intense side by side battle for the lead ensued, this time between Prunty and Morgan. The two took the white flag in a dead heat and Prunty held a minute advantage on the exit of turn two, however Morgan shot ahead by a few inches as they entered turn three. Prunty was able to get a bit of a run exiting turn four which was enough to just spurt ahead at the stripe to take the win by less than a car length over Morgan.

Dennis Prunty has made the outside lane work for him at the Slinger Super Speedway in the past. He admits to liking the outside lane, yet would pick the inside lane if given the choice. Two weeks ago at the Slinger Nationals, he was forced to take the outside lane despite thinking he should have had a choice. As much as he likes the outside, the outcome wasn’t to liking, as he spun his tires on a late race restart and had to settle for second.

This time he was forced to the outside lane again, and he made the most of it by passing Lowell Bennett on lap 40 and holding on to capture his fifth feature win of the year in the Harley Davidson 60. The pass for the lead was set up as Conrad Morgan tried to make it three wide coming off of turn four, and Prunty holding his line and winning the drag race into turn one.
