June 28th, 2008; Sturgeon Bay, WI – Defending track champion Benji LaCrosse held off a hard charging Shawn Kilgore to take the feature win at the Forest County Potawatomi Thunderhill Raceway. Charlie Kroll topped the IMCA stock cars for the second week in a row, and Brad Lautenbach scored his first career IMCA northern sport mod feature victory.

LaCrosse took command early, gaining a huge lead over the rest of the field. A spin by Duwayne Mertens would bunch up the field, and Shawn Kilgore would take advantage. Kilgore made the three-wide pass for second, and took to the high-line to challenge LaCrosse. Kilgore held the lead at one point, but LaCrosse powered back on the bottom groove to secure the victory. Kilgore settled for second, followed by Kyle Kudick, Jared Siefert and last week’s winner Jeremy Jacobs.

Chargin’ Charlie Kroll did just what his nickname implies in the IMCA stock car feature. Scott Reinhardt took the lead from the pole, but a bobble on a restart would set up a great three-wide pass from Kroll to take the lead. Kroll took the feature win for the second week in a row, followed by Jamie Suchocki, Greg Gretz, Von Eytcheson and point leader Matt Junio.

Marcus Moede capped off a great weekend, picking up feature wins at both Luxemburg and Thunderhill in the IMCA hobby stocks. Moede made a three-wide pass on the outside line around Jeff Lautenbach and Dave DeGrave, then held off Jarred VanLaanen and Chad Kaminski for the victory. Aaron Zellner and Keith Kickbusch rounded out the top five.

Brad Lautenbach passed fellow rookie Jesse Kroll to take his first career IMCA northern sport mod feature win. A couple of wicked wrecks sent some heavy hitters down pit lane including point leader Jeff Vlies, Aaron Holiday and Bernie Reinhardt. Lautenbach was followed at the checkers by Rod Solem, Kroll, Holiday and Jeff DuBois.

Todd Everard scored his second feature win of the season in the street stock division. He got by early leader Jimmy Anderson and held off a charging Harley Simon through lapped traffic for the victory. Simon held on for second, followed by John Sternard, Anderson and James Iverson.

Kipp Burlo held off defending champion Tony Everard to pick up his first feature win at Thunderhill in the 4 cylinder division.
