Mike Wedelstadt Thunderhill 7/4

By Chris Budzban

July 4, 2009; Sturgeon Bay, WI — Fremont’s Mike Wedelstadt held off defending IMCA modified track champion Todd Dart to pick up his second feature win of the season at Prestige Yacht Coatings Thunderhill Raceway. Brussels’ Troy Muench picked up his third consecutive feature win in the IMCA stock car division.

Denmark’s Tim Czarneski took the early lead in the IMCA modified feature, but was passed on the outside by Wedelstadt. Wedelstadt pulled away with a good lead, but contact between Shawn Kilgore and Jay Matthias drew a yellow. With 2 laps to go, Dart started to make his move on the inside, but Wedelstadt would prevail on the top line. Dart settled for second, followed by Dave Zeitler, Kevin Sternard and Kilgore, who came from the back after the incident with Matthias to finish fifth.

Nobody has been able to stop Troy Muench as of late in the IMCA stock car division. Don Aregoni grabbed the early lead, with Von Eytcheson charging hard on the inside. The two would tangle, and Muench shot through to capture the lead. The battles behind Muench would heat up, with Charlie Kroll and Bret Koehler getting together, and each ending up with a flat tire. Muench went on to win, followed by Mike Pierrard, who came from the back of the field after an early incident, Pat Davister, Dave Bouche and Jerry Wenzel.

IMCA hobby stock points leader Frank Paul picked up his fourth feature win of the season. Paul battled with Jarred VanLaanen for the top spot, but Luke Lemmens shot past VanLaanen for the runner-up spot. Lemmens took to the outside, running side by side with Paul towards the end of the race. The two would split a lapped car and come to the checkers with Paul edging out Lemmens, who blew his engine at the finish line. Roger LaViolette finished third, Brandon Peterson fourth and VanLaanen fifth.

Kewaunee’s Eugene Gregorich picked up his third feature win in the IMCA northern sport mod division. Gregorich made a three-wide pass on Jesse Kroll and Brad Lautenbach to take the lead, and then held off a charging Cory Cochart for the win. Cochart settled for second, Kroll third, Eric Arneson fourth and Lautenbach fifth.

Seymour’s Jeremy Wiitala captured his third NEW super stock feature win at Thunderhill, passing Todd Everard on the outside and holding him off for the win. Everard finished second, Logan Rhode third, Tim Jandrin fourth and James Anderson fifth.

4 cylinder points leader Kasey Gross picked up the win, cruising to an easy win.

Next week’s races are sponsored by Bissen Asphalt. 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.
