(Sturgeon Bay, WI) May 30 -Kevin Sternard would use the low groove to pass Kyle Kudick on lap 8 and survive a late race charge from Todd Dart to win his first Modified feature of the season at Prestige Yacht Coatings Thunderhill Raceway. Other feature winners were Troy Muench (stockcar), Jeff Vlies (sport mod), Adam Pallex (hobby Stock), Gene Sternard (street stock) and Mathius Prouty (four-cylinders).

Kyle Kudick would pace the early laps in the IMCA Modified feature, until Kevin Sternard would work his way to the inside of Kudick’s machine. The two would run door to door for several laps before Sternard would finally grab the lead on lap 8. A caution with 6 laps remaining would bunch the field. As the green flew former Champion Todd Dart would set his sights on the leader. Sternard running low and Dart up high, when the white flag flew the two would be side by side, but it was Sternard who would rocket off the final turn and take the win. Dart would settle for second, third for Billy LeMieux, Kudick fourth and Jared Siefert fifth.

Troy Muench would pass Jamie Suchocki in the waning laps to win the IMCA Stockcar feature.

A four car battle ensued for the lead with Jamie Suchocki, Kyle Wanner, Eugene Gregorich and Troy Muench. That’s when Muench would work to the outside of Suchocki and take the lead on lap 13. Gregorich would follow suit and work by Wanner and Suchocki. Gregorich would run right to the back bumper of Muench, but it was to little to late as Muench would pick up the checkers, his first win of the season. Followed by Gregorich, a season best third for Suchocki, fourth for Wanner, and fifth Charlie Kroll.

2008 IMCA Sport Mod Champion Jeff Vlies would do a spin to win, capturing his first feature win of the season.

Action was halted by two early cautions, the second of which resulted in Jeff Lautenbach getting rolled over and Jarred VanLaanen’s machine making hard contact with the front stretch wall. Both drivers would emerge without injury but their racers were done for the night.

When racing resumed it was Jeff Vlies on the point, two time feature winner Brad Lautenbach, began to reel in Vlies. With 6 laps remaining Lautenbach and Vlies would make contact sending Vlies’s racer spinning wildly in front of the entire field, bringing out the caution. Lautenbach would be charged for the contact, forcing him to restart at the tail end of the field. Vlies would be given the lead back and he would fight off a late race charge from last weeks winner Ryan LeMieux. Jesse Kroll, Bernie Reinhardt and point leader Eric Arneson would round out the top five.

In Street Stock action Gene Sternard picked up his first career feature win passing point leader James Bosman on the final lap.

Tim Jadrin would lead the first 5 circuits before rookie Tony Everard take over. Everard would lose control 3 laps later handing the lead to James Bosman who looked to have the race well in hand. But a caution would allow a 3 lap dash to the finish. That’s when Gene Sternard would make the pass for the lead with 1 lap to go and hold on for the win. Jason Novak would sneak by for second as Bosman made contact with front stretch wall finishing third, Tony and Nick Everard would round out the top five.

Adam Pallex would lead every lap and pick up his second career feature win in the IMCA Hobby Stocks.

Pallex would contend with Brandon Peterson the majority of the event, but when the dust settled it was the second year driver picking up the win. Following Pallex at the Checkers were Peterson, George Paul, Roger LaViolette and Marcus Moede.

Mathius Prouty is his first trip to ThunderHill Raceway would win the four-cylinder feature.

Artic Glacier Ice will be the sponsor for Saturday night, which will include Street Stock driver introductions.
