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.
