Tom Stark Feature Win 6/27/2009

By Chris Budzban

June 27, 2009; Sturgeon Bay, WI — Egg Harbor’s Tom Stark survived heavy pressure from New Franken’s Shawn Kilgore to capture the IMCA modified feature win at Prestige Yacht Coatings Thunderhill Raceway.

Stark shot out to the early race lead, followed closely by Tim Czarneski. Stark and Czarneski ran the top groove around the track, with Mike Wedelstadt and Kilgore down low. A late caution bunched the field, with Kilgore getting past Wedelstadt to grab the second spot. Kilgore tried to make a move down low on Stark, but Stark powered to victory. Kilgore settled for second, followed by Wedelstadt, Todd Dart and Jay Matthias.

Brussels’ Troy Muench survived a wreck-filled IMCA stock car contest to pick up his second feature win in a row at Thunderhill. A spin by Charlie Kroll wiped out multiple drivers in the top 10 in points, including Pat Davister, Shawn Havel and Dave Bouche. Muench pulled away from the field to pick up the win, followed by Mike Pierrard who came through the infield, Bret Koehler, Jamie Suchocki and Von Eytcheson.

Forestville’s Roger LaViolette picked up his 1st career feature win in the IMCA hobby stock division, doing so rather convincingly. Kelsy Hayes and Marcus Moede battled for second, but tangled in turn 3, sending both to the rear of the field. Brandon Peterson would capture the runner-up spot, followed by Luke Lemmens, Frank Paul and CJ Weckler.

Last year’s runner-up in points in the IMCA northern sport mod division Brad Lautenbach shot out to the early lead and never looked back, taking home his 1st feature win of the season. Lautenbach held off challenges from last week’s winner Bernie Reinhardt, who settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Eric Arneson, Tim Mcormick and Jesse Kroll.

Green Bay’s Todd Everard beat out rivals John Sternard and Jeremy Wiitala to capture the NEW super stock feature win. Sternard and Wiitala battled side-by-side while they caught Everard, but neither could make the pass. Sternard finished second, Wiitala third, James Anderson fourth and Tim Jandrin fifth.

Green Bay’s Tony Everard picked up his 3rd feature win of the season in the 4 cylinder division.

Next week’s action is sponsored by Arctic Glacier. Races begin at 6pm on Saturday evening, 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.

HISTORIC NIGHT FOR LEMIEUX

(Sturgeon Bay, WI – 7/29/2015)

Chances are, Billy LeMieux will long remember the last week of July, 2015.

After winning two features on Sunday, he came back to repeat the feat Wednesday night as Thunderhill Raceway’s program shifted to midweek to open the Door County Fair.

Joining LeMieux in victory lane on the night were Tyler Hackett in the Modifieds, Randy LeMieux, Jr in the Sport Mods, Travis LuMaye in the Hobby Stocks and Nathan Delsart in the Thunder Trucks.
