by Joe and Jordan Verdegan
(LUXEMBURG, WI) July 9 — Gillett’s Kyle Frederick passed New Franken’s Troy Muench with three laps to go and went on to win the caution free, 22 lap IMCA stock car feature at Luxemburg Speedway Friday night on Custom Windows Plus night at the races.
Juneau’s Russ Reinwald passed Little Suamico’s Danny Deau for the lead on lap 10 and went on to capture the caution free, 25 lap IMCA modified feature.
A total of 130 cars signed in to do battle, including 24 IMCA modifeds, 26 stock cars, 28 northern sportmods, 18 street stocks, 20 hobby stocks and 14 sport fours.
Frederick started 10th on the grid and gradually worked his way into the top five by lap 10. Muench and Oconto’s Dustin Loberger took turns swapping the lead, when Frederick and Ellisville’s Robert Waechter all mixed it up for the lead from laps 10 to 18. Frederick squeezed inside of Muench on lap 19 to take the lead and eventually the win. Muench, Loberger, Waechter and Luxemburg’s Dave De Grave rounded out the top five.
Reinwald received a still challenge at the event’s mid point by Luxemburg’s Benji LaCrosse, who wound up second. Seymour’s Mike Mullen charged from 12th to finish third, followed by Frog Station’s Dan Ratajczak and De Pere’s Jay Matthias.
Oconto Falls’ Eric “Chummy” Arneson muscled his way inside of New Franken’s Mark Joski on the final lap to take the 20 lap IMCA northern sportmod feature. Joski held on for second in his best career performance. De Pere’s Troy “Snoot” De Grave also posted his top performance of the year with a third place. De Pere’s Johnny Whitman took fourth while Kewaunee’s Brad Theys finished fifth, after qualifying into the feature by winning the semi feature.
Brillion’s Ryan Brandes, who started 17th, passed Greenville’s Danny Gracyalny for the lead with three laps to go to win the 20 lap street stock feature.
