Dennis Prunty 42 making the winning pass on Scott Schoeni 31 in the Super Late Model FeatureBy Dan Margetta
Slinger, Wis., May 23—Dennis Prunty raced around Scott Schoeni in the closing laps of the Pepsi Challenge Series Round One 70-lap super late model main event and drove to his second feature victory in a row Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.
“I feel exhausted, “Prunty stated from victory lane before teasing the crowd with, “I heard a lot of boos, let’s hear it again…Dennis Prunty won!” That drew a strong response from the crowd with both supporters and detractors voicing their emotions with a mixture of pros and cons. “I don’t know,” Prunty continued, “I think it’s 50-50 right now but it doesn’t matter because I just give her hell every week.”
“Honestly, that was Scott Schoeni’s race,” Prunty said, describing the battle for the win, “It was a greasy night out there with this humidity that makes it slippery and it’s tough to race side by side but we did it.”
