JEROVETZ AND MUENCH CLAIM ROC WINS AT LUXEMBURG
Posted under Race Reports on September 17th, 2011
(Luxemburg, WI – 9/16/2011) – Sean Jerovetz and Troy Muench captured Race of Champions victories Friday night, highlighting opening round action at Luxemburg Speedway’s Tisler Salvage Fall Classic.
200 race teams packed the pits for the first night’s events, featuring qualifying heats for Saturday night’s features, as well as qualifications and the ROC headliners.
In the Modified division, Jerovetz out-dueled Tim Czarneski at the drop of the green, then pulled away to a comfortable margin en route to his ROC victory. Czarneski settled for second, chased to the line by a hard charging Jay Matthias. Matthias captured the podium finish despite starting last in the field of 12.
Muench worked past Dave DeGrave for the lead on the 5th lap of the Stock Car ROC feature, then held off Brian Ambrosius for the final two-thirds of the event.
The ROC fields were made up of racers who were, or had been, track champions in their respective divisions, as well as feature winners in the class during the 2011 racing season.
Last chance qualifiers in all divisions will open the show Saturday night, followed by the main events for all seven classes. Pits will open at 3:00, with the grandstand gate opening at 4:15. The first LCQ will take to the clay at 5:30.
Luxemburg Speedway is located at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds in Luxemburg, WI. For more information, visit the track’s website at www.luxemburgspeedway.com.
