June 20, 2009; Sturgeon Bay, WI — Two Rivers’ Kyle Kudick made the high line work and shot past Brett Wenzel with 3 laps to go, winning his 1st IMCA modified feature of the season at Prestige Yacht Coatings Thunderhill Raceway.

Wenzel set the pace early from his front row starting spot, with Kevin Sternard right behind. Sternard fought hard down low, but Wenzel closed the door each time. A caution flew for a spin by Dan Ratajczak, bunching the field. When racing resumed, Kudick shot to the outside line, making the pass stick on Wenzel. With one lap to go, Wenzel hit an infield tire in turn 2, scattering the field behind him. Kudick brought home the victory, followed by Todd Dart, Jeremy Jacobs, Sternard and Art Siefert.

Brussels’ Troy Muench grabbed the lead early in the IMCA stock car feature and never looked back, winning his 1st feature of the season at Thunderhill. Charlie Kroll finished second, Dave Bouche third on a last lap pass, Pat Davister fourth and Mike Pierrard fifth.

IMCA hobby stock points leader Frank Paul bested Brandon Peterson by a bumper to win his 3rd feature of the season. Peterson closed in on Paul with 2 laps to go, and they went side by side to the checkers. Luke Lemmens finished third, followed by Aaron Zellner and Jarred VanLaanen.

Sturgeon Bay’s Bernie Reinhardt made it look easy in the IMCA northern sport mod division. Reinhardt took the lead and hugged the bottom, pulling away from the field for the win. Eugene Gregorich came from deep in the field to finish second, followed by Eric Arneson, Cory Cochart and Jeff DuBois.

Another wild finish ensued in the NEW super stock division. Points leader Jeremy Wiitala grabbed the lead halfway through the contest, with Todd Everard hot on his heels. Everard went to the outside to make his move and made the pass with 2 laps remaining.

Coming to the white flag, Everard spun out in turn 3, handing the lead back over to Wiitala. As he came to the checkers, Wiitala’s right rear tire went flat, allowing Dennis Weidner to get alongside him to the checkers. Wiitala hung on to win by inches over Weidner, Les Sternard third, James Anderson fourth and Andy Poluch fifth.

Algoma’s Matt Borths ended Tyler DeBouche’s streak of 3 feature wins in a row, netting his 1st 4 cylinder feature win of the season.

Next week’s races are sponsored by Massart’s Auto Body & Floors by Josh. Racing gets underway at 6pm with IMCA modifieds, stock cars, hobby stocks, northern sport mods, NEW super stocks and 4 cylinders in action. For more information, visit www.racethunderhill.com or call (920) 743-7052.
