JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, August 17, 2013) Helenville’s Brandon Pendleton methodically worked past Rio’s Steve Dobbratz and stayed out front to get the win on Cost Cutters Back to School Night at Jefferson Speedway. The victory marked Pendleton’s second feature win of the 2013 season.
Dobbratz and Bruce Lee brought the field to green with Dobbratz taking command of the early lead on lap one. Pendleton followed into second with Dylan Schuyler taking over third. Pendleton began to pressure Dobbratz before a caution on lap six slowed his efforts. As racing resumed, Pendleton got back to work on the leader as he searched for a way past. On lap 15, Pendleton got a good run on the low side of Dobbratz as they raced out of turn two. Pendleton drew even on lap 17 as they waged war for the top spot. On lap 22, Pendleton cleared for the lead with Dobbratz now applying the pressure to the new leader. The top two began to break away from the pack while Tory Bagley challenged Schuyler for third. Bagley and Schuyler continued to battle for third while Pendleton took control out front. The leaders maneuvered through lapped traffic with Pendleton showing the way and Dobbratz trying to stay close. But Pendleton had the field covered over the final circuits as he cruised to the checkers for the win. Dobbratz came home second followed by Trent Erdman, Bagley and Stephen Scheel.
