Slinger, Wis., Aug. 23—Lowell Bennett kept his cool during a rough and tumble KFC/Pepsi Challenge Championship 80-lap super lat e model feature to capture his fifth victory of the season Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“What a fun night here, it looks like we got a little damage on the back of the car we didn’t even realize we had,” Bennett said after a race in which he inherited the top spot after leaders Al Schill and Dale Prunty tangled late in the event, “I was watching them and we were gaining on them every single lap there and I just didn’t want to see them get into that. It’s fun just to out-race these guys.”

Al Schill and Dave Feiler brought the field to the green flag with Feiler getting the early jump to lead the opening laps with Schill slotted behind him, just ahead of David Prunty in third. Schill pressured Feiler for a few laps before edging to the inside on lap seven to take the lead going into turn one. When Feiler quickly attempted to fill the minute gap between Schill and third place Prunty entering turn three, contact between himself and Prunty sent Feiler’s car spinning around to draw the first caution flag, resulting in both Feier and Prunty being sent to the rear of the field for the restart.

Schill led Randy Schuler and Dale Prunty as racing resumed with Dale Prunty immediately charging into second place using the inside lane as Gary LaMonte, Collin Bamke, and Rich Loch all took advantage of the inside lane to move into third through fifth respectively. The caution flag waved again on lap 17 for a two car incident involving Brad Dahmer and David Prunty in turn two with Schill maintaining his lead over Dale Prunty. Schill and Dale Prunty renewed their battle for the lead as the race went back to green as farther back Feiler began to work his way forward, pressuring Jon Reynolds Jr. for eighth. After a few taps on Reynolds bumper, Feiler muscled his way around on lap 28, sending Reynolds high on the track and as he tried to dive back in line, Reynolds cut across the front of Steve Apel, resulting in Reynolds spinning into turn one with the caution flag waving for the third time.

Slinger, Wis., Aug. 16—Dennis Prunty battled with Jamie Wallace and Collin Bamke before capturing his second feature win of the season in the Pomp’s Tire Fan Appreciation 65 Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“I tell you what, me and Jamie Wallace, this year we’ve had a few incidents, but we ran clean and we ran fun, ” Prunty told the crowd from victory lane after wrestling with Wallace for the lead following two restarts, “That’s what I like to do.”

The field was led to the green flag by Wallace and David Prunty with David inching ahead to lead the opening laps while Dennis Prunty, Brad Dahmer, and Al Schill lined up in third through fifth respectively. Wallace’s car turned well on the inside line and he was able to duck to the inside of David Prunty to take the lead on lap six, with Dennis Prunty following suit a few laps later to claim second. Prunty tailed Wallace for a few laps before making the move for the lead on lap 21. With Dennis Prunty leading Wallace out front, close quarters racing in the pack behind them jumbled positions nearly every lap before things began to sort out by lap 25 with Schill occupying third ahead of David Prunty and Dahmer. The inside line was the hot set up early on with anyone advancing positions having to quickly slice back down in line across the nose of the car passed which led to numerous instances of minor contact throughout the field.

The best way to get around the Slinger Super Speedway is normally on the low side of the high banked quarter mile oval. Cars that can run well on the high side are usually a force to be reckoned with. Yet this season, the high side has proven to be a slippery situation for those who dare risk it.

Most people think of retirement when you get to be 64 years of age. Most people that age do not compete against people young enough to be their children or even grand children for that matter. Sponsors have a tendency to go with youth over experience and they say “It’s a young man’s game.”

Despite not having won a feature since 2007, and only running a limited schedule, Al Schill, who is a youthful 64 years of age, proved that experience can still compete with youth, as he captured the win in the Harley Davidson 60 at the Slinger Super Speedway Sunday night.

“It’s been a few years, I think since ’08 since I won one,” said Schill in Victory Lane. “Last night my buddy Ted Dolhun won one at Plymouth, the first time in nine years. He’s 64 years old, and I’m 64 so I’m gonna celebrate tomorrow night at the radio show.”

He is referring to his scheduled appearance on the Racing Round-up radio show, and winning the feature should make for a much more exciting show.

Mike Egan and Conrad Morgan paced the field of 18 cars to the green flag, with Egan gaining the advantage on lap 3. Egan worked the inside to get around Morgan while Schill ducked under Dennis Prunty to take over third. Morgan got stuck on the high side, as the inside line slowly made its way around, hanging him out to dry.

Egan would pace the field until the yellow flew on lap 11 when leaking fluid from the car of Steve Apel wreaked havoc for a number of cars.

Once the race resumed, Schill would get by Egan on the high side of turn two, when Egan got loose entering the corner. Schill would slowly pull away and build a lead of several car lengths.
