Slinger, Wis., Aug 12—A week after finding themselves wrecked against the first turn wall, Dennis Prunty and Steve Apel fought for the victory in the 50-lap super late model main event Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway, with Prunty edging Apel at the stripe for his fifth feature victory of the season.
“My guys worked their ass off all week in the shop putting this thing back together and I’ve got to thank everyone of them,” Prunty stated from victory lane as both drivers spent the last week making major repairs to their cars.
“We just got stuck in traffic a little bit, “Apel explained following his close second place finish, “We had the fastest car on the track but just couldn’t come home with the victory.”

Slinger, Wis., Aug 5—Mike Egan turned back the challenges of Lowell Bennett to capture his second feature victory of the season in a wild 50-lap super late model main event Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway in which track championship contenders Dennis Prunty and Steve Apel found themselves on the sidelines after crashing together while racing for position near the halfway point.
“That was a great race and Lowell (Bennett) was all over me, “an obviously excited Egan stated from victory lane, “This is the second win and I’d like to get one more though I think.”

Steve Apel has had a challenging season at the Slinger Super Speedway in 2012. The challenges of gambling on different setups. The challenges of dealing with adversity. The challenges of worrying about his father’s illness. As well as the challenge of proposing to his long time girlfriend.
Each and every time Apel has survived those challenges and thrived on it. Not only did he take each challenge head on, he took the checkered flag in the Pepsi Challenge 60.
When things are going well it looks easy and when they are not it’s been a struggle. Apel’s answer to that is just as straightforward as his driving.
