Deau’s Ford Powered IMCA Mod Captures Second Luxemburg Feature!
By Joe Verdegan
August 17, 2007; Luxemburg, WI. — Little Suamico’s Danny Deau fought off a hard charging Kyle Kudick and Jared Siefert in the final laps to win his second 25 lap IMCA modified feature at Luxemburg Speedway Friday night.
A total of 121 cars were on hand, including 30 IMCA modifieds, 29 stock cars, 18 hobby stocks, 18 northern sportmods and 26 sport fours.
Mishicot rookie Kudick jumped into the lead at the drop of the green for the 25 lap contest. Deau ducked underneath Kudick for the lead on lap four. Kudick kept Deau in his sights for the balance of the contest, all while Siefert sliced his way through the field from 12th to third in the first ten laps. With eight laps to go Siefert caught the lead duo, driving around Kudick with two laps to go and coming up just shy at the checkers.
Siefert, the point leader, settled for second place money, followed by Kudick in his best performance of the year, Jay Matthias and Eddie Muenster.
Brussels’ Troy Muench passed Dave Bouche on a lap 11 restart for the lead and went on to win the 22 lap IMCA stock car feature. Algoma’s Bouche outraced his uncle Tony Bouche to the lead at the drop of the green in the 22 lap IMCA stock car feature. Bouche built up a big lead that was wiped out with a Troy De Grave spin on lap eleven which tightened the field.
On the restart Muench drove around Bouche to take the lead, a lead that Muench extended to three car lengths during the next several laps. Muench was never headed as he captured the feature win. Suamico’s Kyle Wanner took second while Dave Bouche hung on for third. Jesse Colwell took fourth. Points leader Jamie Colwell, driving a car borrowed from Ben Kroll, charged through the field from dead last to take fifth.
Jamie Colwell blew a motor after qualifying into the main event through a semi-feature.
De Pere’s Tim Jorgenson passed Dave Davister for the lead on lap nine and went on to win his eighth, 18 lap IMCA northern sportmod feature, padding his division points lead in the process.
Casco’s Marcus Moede fought off a late race challenge from Luxemburg’s Dave De Grave to collect the 18 lap IMCA hobby stock feature. Suamico’s Jamie Miller swept action in the sport four class.
Winners of the Powder Puff races were Luxemburg’s Julie Veeser, Brooke Boulanger, Green Bay’s Angela Wolf and Luxemburg’s Ashley De Jardin.
