Jeremy Lepak has been hard to catch this season at the Slinger Super Speedway. Despite an unusually poor qualifying session, Lepak was able to outrun Lowell Bennett and Jon Reynolds Jr. to score his fourth victory of the season, in taking the checkers in the Suburban Motors Harley Davidson 70.
“It’s about time we had some luck to go our way,” said Lepak from Victory Lane. “Last week ended a three week string where I was leading with two different race teams and something broke. I just kept telling these guys to keep their heads up and the luck was going to turn around for us. These guys do everything for me and I really appreciate it.”
Randy Schuler and Chris Blawat led the field to the green flag. Schuler would get the advantage at the drop of the green flag, but wouldn’t make it around to complete the first lap. Blawat nudged Schuler in turn four causing Schuler to spin and bring out the first yellow. Since the lap was not completed, it was decided to start the race from the top. However, Schuler would restart from the rear due to having to pit to repair the cosmetic damage to his car. Rob Braun also suffered cosmetic damage and returned with Schuler to the rear of the field.
