LaCrosse Nabs Luxemburg IMCA Mod Main!
By Joe Verdegan
August 31, 2007; Luxemburg, WI. — Hometown driver Benji LaCrosse grabbed the lead on a lap 18 restart and
went on to win the IMCA modified feature at Luxemburg Speedway Friday night.
Champions were crowned in the five track divisions, including Green Bay’s Jared Siefert, who captured the IMCA modified crown one week prior. Other champions were Jamie Colwell of Greenleaf in the IMCA stock cars, De Pere’s Tim Jorgenson in the IMCA northern sportmods, Lomira’s Jesse Kanas in the IMCA hobby stocks and Suamico’s JJ Anderson in the sport four division.
A total of 124 cars were on hand, including 33 IMCA modifieds, 33 stock cars, 19 hobby stocks, 13 northern sportmods, 20 sport fours and seven mini stocks.
Pulaski’s Rod Snellenberger grabbed the lead on a lap 15 restart and went on to win the 22 lap IMCA stock car feature. By virtue of his seventh place finish, Greenleaf’s Jamie Colwell clinched his first ever IMCA stock car track title.
Hometown driver Dan Davister paced the IMCA hobby stock field by winning that division’s feature while Tim Jorgenson put the icing on the cake winning both the IMCA northern sportmod feature and division title. Oconto Falls’ Ian Lassanske won the sport four feature while Manitowoc’s Allen Dillion swept action in an exhibition of sorts for the 141 Speedway mini stocks, winning both the heat and the feature.
