7/12 Modified Payout

By Edward Anschutz

(Sturgeon Bay, WI) July 10, 2014 Press Release- Thunderhill Raceway Modified drivers will once again race for added pay this Saturday, July 12. The top five spots in the main will receive a pay bump with the feature winner taking home $700. Second place pays $400, third $300, fourth $225, fifth $200. No extra fees at the back gate. Being treated as a regular points night.

The 3rd Annual Terry Simon Memorial will take place as the first attempt was washed out by mother nature. The night will feature $1 cans of Coors Light with a paid wristband and free popcorn. Street Stocks will be in competition for bragging rights in the for King of the Hill tournament. Racing starts at 6pm.

Race Wars…

Point leader shakeups! Top five in the Street Stock separated by only 3 points. New point leader in the IMCA Stock Cars. IMCA Sport Mods all locked up. Super tight battles in the IMCA Modifieds and IMCA Hobby Stocks.

Kevin Luedtke has emerged with the point lead heading into week 8 in the Street Stocks. Billy LeMieux has slipped to second but is only one point behind. Both drivers are chasing their first title. Former champ Geno Sternard sits third just 2 points out of it. Jeremy DuBois and Mike Sargent are tied for fourth in the standings but are still in contention for the crown only 3 points back.

Speaking of the Street Stocks, despite controversy surrounding the bounty on Street Stock driver Billy LeMieux, it still stands and has grown to $600. LeMieux started the season with 4 feature wins but mechanical gremlins have plagued the Sturgeon Bay driver. Three straight dnf’s have cost him the point lead. While some drivers have questioned the legitimacy of the mechanical issues other realize its just how racing goes sometimes.

LeMieux gains nothing from the bounty and if anything it has hurt him in the point standings. On his bad nights there’s more cars chasing the bounty, so if he doesn’t finish he’s losing more points. When LeMieux doesn’t break, he hasn’t been beaten. Dating back to last season where won a division best 5 feature wins and 7 heat race wins. Combine that with this years stats and its 9 feature wins and 9 heat race wins in only a season and a half. Some drivers don’t have that many wins in their career. LeMieux has shown up each week to win and that’s why the bounty will stay in place.

It’s a dead heat for the top spot in the IMCA Sport Mods. Chris Budzban and Ryan LeMieux are tied for the lead. Jarred VanLaanen sits third 5 points behind. All three drivers are looking to earn their first championship.

Defending IMCA Stock Car champ Dave Bouche leads the standings for the first time this season. Fresh off his second feature win of the season, Shawn Havel sits second and is tied with former champ Charlie Kroll. They both are just 1 point back. Havel is chasing his first ever championship.

Todd Dart rolled to his fifth feature win of the season in the IMCA Modifieds and leads the class by 9 points over defending champ James Tebon.

Jeremy Jauquet has lead the IMCA Hobby Stock points since opening night. He leads the division with 3 feature wins but he only has a 5 point advantage over Derek Moede.
