|Jefferson Speedway Race Report:|
May 17, 2008; Jefferson WI -- The ASA Midwest Tour made a visit to Wisconsin's Action Track, Jefferson Speedway, on a cool rainy night. Running in conjunction with the ASAMT were two of the speedway's finest divisions, the hobby stocks and bandits. Unfortunately, rain didn't allow the 20 lap bandit feature to begin, but the hobby stock division managed to put on a good show with Waterloo's Dustin Ward coming out on top in the 25 lap feature event.
Ward dominated the feature, starting on the front row and leading all 25 laps to the victory. Ward took the lead on lap one as the field stacked up behind him, eventually leading to the only caution period of the race on lap two. On the restart, Alan Dorn and Tim Lange waged a battle for the runner up position, racing side by side and trading a little paint. On lap 13, Lange got loose and slid back to fifth, allowing Jim Tate take over the third spot. Four laps later, Tate broke loose and dropped out of the top five. But Tate would not go away easily, reentering the top five with four laps remaining and charging into the third spot once again. But Ward had the field covered, cruising to the checkered flag for the win followed by Dorn, Tate, Jim Robinson and Lange.
The bandit division was able to complete all it's heat races and the last chance event, but the rain didn't allow the feature to get the green flag. The 20 lap bandit feature will be the first event of the program on Saturday, May 24. Next week's program will be highlighted by the B & M Electric 50 lap late model feature as well as a full program in all five divisions. Jefferson Speedway is located halfway between Jefferson and Cambridge on Hwy 18. For more information, please visit www.jeffersonspeedway.com.
