Zeitler Dominates at Luxemburg!

By Greg Aregoni

July 13, 2007; Luxemburg, WI. – Dave Zeitler put all of the superstitions to rest as he picked up his first feature win of the season in the IMCA Modifieds.

A Total of 125 cars entered the pits including 37 IMCA Stockcars, 31 IMCA Modifieds, 24 4 Cylinders, 18 IMCA
Hobby Stocks, and 15 Fastrak Late Models.

Dave Zeitler and Billy Lemieux battled it out for the lead in the early laps of the IMCA Modified feature event. Zeitler cleared Lemieux using the topside and checked out. Both R.M. VanPay and Jared Siefert passed Lemieux and their battle for second. A caution on lap 13 for a Dan Rataczjak spin regrouped the field. Zeitler once again checked out from both VanPay and Siefert. Zeitler cruised to his first win of the season leading all 25 laps followed by VanPay, Siefert, Sean Jerovetz, and Lemieux. The win gave Zeitler a clean sweep on the night.

Dan Davister led the opening four laps of the IMCA Hobby Stock feature until Tom Brumlic made his presence felt. Brumlic charged from his 10th starting spot to second in two laps. Brumlic made his was outside of Davister and snatched the lead on lap 4. On lap 8 as Davister was making his way through lapped traffic, Brad Treml spun out and Davister got
collected. Davister had heavy frame damage as both cars were done for the night. Brumlic cruised away on the restart and picked up the feature win. Brumlic won despite getting a flat tire at the checkers. Frank Paul finished second followed by Brandon Peterson, Jesse Kanas, and Dave DeGrave. Tyler Wilson claimed the motor of Brumlic. Claim was accepted.

Todd Jensema led the opening laps of the Fastrak Late Model feature event. He would continue to lead until spinning out in turn 3 on lap 5. With no caution flag, Craig Bartz inherited the lead. Bartz would continue to lead until a Jeff Curtin spin on lap 8 regrouped the field. On the restart, Tom Naeyart snatched second away from Jensema. Naeyart would have to sit in second through a lap 16 caution. Naeyart jumped to the lead on the inside of Bartz on lap 19. He cruised to victory ahead of Bartz, Jensema, Justin Hirt, and Dan Wanta.

The IMCA Stockcar feature was led at the drop of the green by Pat Davister. Davister led the first three laps until Charlie Kroll and Ben Kroll passed him for the lead. The duo would exchange the lead for two laps until Charlie took command with Jesse Colwell right behind. Colwell made the pass on Kroll on the inside on lap 10. Colwell cruised away from the rest of the field. The battle for second between Charlie Kroll and Brian Bruechert heated up with three laps to go. Going into turn 1, Bruechert went hard into the Kroll car pushing Kroll up the track. With the duo going at it for the runner-up spot, Colwell cruised to the win followed by Bruechert, C. Kroll, B. Kroll, and Kerry Havlovitz. The race went green to checker.

Jason Cornelius picked up the 4 Cylinder feature win.
