MULLEN ROLLS TO CLASSIC OPENER WIN
by Tom Wagner
(Luxemburg, WI – 9/18/2009) – Track champ Brian Mullen picked up where he left off in the regular season by dominating the opening night Modified feature of the Tisler Fall Classic Friday night at the Luxemburg Speedway in Luxemburg.
Mullen pulled away from an early battle with James Tebon to secure the win in the qualifying feature event, securing a spot in Saturday night’s $1,500 to win “A” main.
Other winners in the qualifying features were Troy Muench in the Stock Cars, Greg Wichman in the Sport Mods, Marcus Moede in the Hobby Stocks and Kevin Birr in the Sport 4s. Two additional classes were also on the card, with Jestin Danes winning the Grand National feature and Ed Anschutz stepping from the announcer’s booth to take top honors in the Street Stocks.
187 teams packed the pits at cut-off, with several late teams filing in to push the total car count over 190.
Those not making the show through the Friday night features will have a second chance Saturday as last chance qualifiers will open the day two program at 4:30, followed by the seven championship features.
