by Larry & Jeanne Starr
May 12, 2007; Jefferson WI --Doug
Hahn of Whitewater claimed top honors in the “B&M Electric 50” Late Model
main event. Starting 12th Hahn headed toward the front as Colin Bamke
grabbed the early lead. Bamke held the point for a single lap before he was
overtaken by Jason Deppe.
Deppe guided the way for 39 laps, as Hahn worked his way through traffic,
behind Kyle Jarlsberg. Jarlsberg made his way to 3rd by lap 29, with Hahn
close behind for 4th. Jarlsberg was working the outside of Bamke, for the
2nd spot, on lap 37, when Bamke lost the handle, going into turn 1. Bamke’s
spin collected Jarlsberg, bringing out the only caution of the race. Hahn
inherited the 2nd spot for the restart, closing with Deppe. Moving to the
inside, Hahn made the winning pass on lay 40, with Dylan Schuyler close
behind for 2nd. As they flew past the checkers it was Hahn for the win
followed by Schuyler, Deppe, Chris Quam and Noel Ramge.
In International action Brandon Riedner of Waunakee notched the victory, in
the 20 lap feature. Starting outside row 3, Riedner headed to the point as
Pete Seitz drove to the early lead. Riedner closed with Seitz on lap 3,
claiming the top spot on the 4th circuit. From there it was Riedner guiding
the field to the checkers as Joe Cross claimed the 2nd spot battling Riedner
for the win. At the stripe it was Brandon Riedner for the win followed by
Cross, Chris Gottschalk, Kyle Smith and Kyle Riedner.
In Sportsman action Chris Ehrhart of Deerfield won the 30 lap main.
Starting outside row 3 Ehrhart headed to the front as Russ Nicholson claimed
the early lead. Caution came, on lap 5, for a multi-car tangle, off the 2nd
turn. Nicholson led the restart, with Ehrhart running 4th. Ehrhart motored
under Jeff Kohlhoff and Ken Scott on lap 6 closing with Nicholson. Ehrhart
battled Nicholson for 3 laps before making the winning pass, on lap 10.
Ehrhart opened a strong lead, on his way to the checkers, as Scott Riedner
blazed through traffic, to the 2nd spot. At the finish it was Ehrhart for
the win followed by Riedner, Nicholson, Greg Ovadal and James Helmer.
In Hobby Stock Action Larry Moen of Madison squeaked to the win in the 24
lap feature. Starting 12 Moen headed toward the front as Bobby Selsing
grabbed the early lead. Selsing was relieved at the point, on lap 6, by Jim
Tate. Tate led the was for 18 laps, as Moen made his way through traffic.
Caution came, on lap 12, for a spin in turn 4. Tate led the restart with
Moen up to the 3rd spot. Moen moved under Selsing for the 2nd spot on lap
14 closing with Tate. Moen had, nearly, made it to the point, when the
caution flew again, on lap 16, for a collision on the back stretch. On that
restart Moen closed with Tate, edging ahead Moen led laps 19 and 20, by a
bumper, only to see Tate edge back to the point for laps 22 and 23. In his
final effort, Moen moved back ahead on lap 24, taking the checkers by a
narrow margin, over
Tate. Rounding out the top five were Alan Dorn, Kyle Stark and Chet Paffel.
In Bandit action Kyle Watters of Stoughton won the 20 lap feature. Starting
13th Watters headed to the point as Brian Nelson took the early lead.
Nelson led the way for 12 laps before surrendering the point to Watters.
Watters claimed the point on lap 13 showing the way to the checkers. The
race slowed for 4 cautions, on laps 2, 7, 9 and 11. At the finish it was
Kyle Watters for the win followed by Sean Watters, Gary Stark, Stephen
Scheel and Nelson.
