JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, June 15, 2013) “Thrillin” Dylan Schuyler of Jefferson scored his first feature victory of the season on Saturday night at Jefferson Speedway. Schuyler made the winning pass just after the halfway point of the O’Reilly Auto Parts 50 lap Late Model main event en route to picking up the trophy.
Kyle Smith and Kyle Taylor led the field to green with Smith taking the early lead on lap one. Brandon Pendleton followed into second as Taylor slipped back into the pack. On lap two, Pendleton made his move under Smith to grab control of the top spot with Stephen Scheel following into second. The sole caution of the event appeared on lap eight when Smith and Tyler Peterson made contact on the front stretch. Pendleton restarted as the leader with Scheel in second and Schuyler up to third. On lap 12, Schuyler charged under Scheel looking for second. A lap later, Schuyler was clear for the runner up position as he pulled up behind Pendleton. Schuyler began to apply pressure on the low side of the leader on lap 22 with Pendleton holding him off momentarily. But on lap 29, Schuyler got a good run, drawing even with Pendleton. A lap later, Schuyler cleared for the lead as they exited turn four. Schuyler began to stretch his advantage while Dale Nottestad moved up to challenge Pendleton for the second spot. Nottestad got by Pendleton for second on lap 36 with Kyle Jarlsberg in tow for third. Nottestad and Jarlsberg began a battle for second allowing Schuyler to slip away further at the front. Jarlsberg eventually got by Nottestad for second, but Schuyler was already well on his way to picking up the checkers and the win. Jarlsberg finished second followed by Nottestad, Pendleton and Zack Riddle.
