40th Annual WI State Championships Day One Results

CAMBRIDGE, WI (Friday, September 18, 2020) Day one of the 40th annual Wisconsin State Championships at Jefferson Speedway kicked off on Friday evening with seven divisions on track, including the Midwest Truck Series. Former Jefferson Late Model champion, John Ovadal Jr of Watertown, dominated the 50 lap Truck Series feature to get the win. Meanwhile, Lake Mills pilot, Stephen Scheel, scored the win in the Glassworks 50 lap Late Model main event.


Luke Westenberg and Kyle Smith led the 18 car Late Model field to green with Smith taking the early lead ahead of Westenberg and Jacob Nottestad. The sole caution of the race flew on lap three when Nottestad spun in turn four after contact with a fellow competitor. Smith and Luke Hoffman restarted the action with Smith once again grabbing the lead. On lap seven, Stephen Scheel dove under Smith, stealing the top spot away and bringing Dale Nottestad along for second. Shaun Scheel followed into third as the leaders lined up single file with Nottestad remaining on Scheel’s rear bumper. Casey Johnson joined the leaders as the laps began to dwindle, making his way up to second by lap 48. Johnson took a look under Scheel on the final circuit, but Scheel held him at bay to see the checkers first and get the win. Johnson settled for second with Nottestad, Shaun Scheel and Jordan DeVoy rounding out the top five.
The Midwest Truck Series returned to Jefferson Speedway for the second time in 2020 for a 50 lap feature event. Kevin Knuese took the early lead from the pole until a caution on lap two slowed the action. Knuese and John Ovadal Jr paced the field back to green with Ovadal firing into the lead on the restart. Knuese fell to second while Ovadal moved out to a comfortable advantage and began to cruise. Ovadal remained unchallenged at the point over the remainder of the race, crossing the stripe first to complete the win. Knuese hung on for second followed by Joe Valento, James Swan and Kenny Joosten.
Bobby Selsing Jr of Fort Atkinson took the lead of the 30 lap Sportsman feature and held off his father-in-law to secure the win. Chris Jones held the early lead until a caution on lap eight slowed the pace. Jones and Selsing led the field back to green with Selsing pouncing on the lead at the restart. Deporter moved up to the high side of Jones to challenge for second while Selsing continued to show the way. Deporter completed the pass for second before the second and final caution waved on lap 22. Selsing and Deporter paced the field back to green as they battled side by side for control while the laps ticked away. Selsing held the advantage on the final lap, holding his lead as they raced out of turn four and crossed the stripe. Deporter settled for second with Robert Hansberry Jr, Jones and Jason Thoma completing the top five.
Marshall’s Kyle Stark charged to the front of the 20 lap International feature to grab the win. Mark Dewey led lap one with John Handeland up to second and Stark already in third. Stark moved past Handeland on lap seven and drew even with Dewey at the front a lap later. After three cautions around the halfway point of the race, Stark assumed the top spot and began to separate himself from the pack. At the checkers, it was Stark for the win followed by Tyler Deschaine, Gary Stark, Dewey and Mark English.
Chester Williams of Waukesha claimed the 25 lap Hobby Stock feature event. Williams and Korey Bengsch battled from the front row as racing began with Bengsch taking the initial lead. Williams stuck close until a caution on lap 13 slowed the action. Bengsch and Williams led the pack back to green, this time with Williams grabbing control of the lead on the restart. Williams remained out front over the final laps to secure the win with Bengsch coming home second. Chris Flairty was third followed by Christian Janssen and Shane Radtke.
The Road Warrior division ran double features on Friday evening to determine the 2020 Wisconsin State Champion. Bill Sweeney of Lake Mills stole the lead from Bill Reynolds in the first feature event, holding him off over the final 13 laps to get the win. Reynolds was second with AJ Accardi in third. Accardi jumped out front in the second feature, pulling away from the pack while Sweeney and Reynolds moved up into the top three. Sweeney got to second while Accardi ran away to get the win. When the dust settled, Sweeney was crowned Road Warrior State Champion after a tie breaker situation with Accardi.
In Bandit action, Carson Phillips and Jon Pettit scored wins in twin 20 lap feature races. Phillips took control of the point in the first feature after an early caution. Phillips ran unchallenged from there to get the win with Nick Schmidt grabbing second on the final lap from Isaac Bray. Jon Petitt took the lead from Ashlynn Jarlsberg in the second feature on lap nine. Petitt maintained the lead through a caution on lap 12 and stayed out front to capture his first career feature win. Petitt combined finishes of first and seventh to claim the overall title for the Bandit division.
Night two of the 40th annual Wisconsin State Championships gets underway on Saturday, September 19, with the first green flag at 6pm. Jefferson Speedway is located halfway between Jefferson and Cambridge on Hwy 18. Please visit jeffersonspeedway.com for more information.
