JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, June 08, 2013) Stoughton’s Chris Quam grabbed control of the Brown’s Heating and Air Conditioning 50 lap Late Model main event and stayed there through the checkered flag to pick up the victory. The win marks Quam’s first feature win since the 2010 season at Jefferson Speedway.
Brandon Pendleton and Tyler Peterson led the field to green with Peterson holding the advantage on lap one. Peterson cleared for sole possession of the top spot on lap two as Quam tried to follow around the outside of Pendleton. Quam completed the pass for second on lap three bringing Roger Behlke along for third. Quam began to apply heavy pressure to Peterson on the point, taking a look on the low side of the leader on lap eight. Peterson reclaimed the lead for himself on lap 11, but Quam stayed on his rear bumper looking for an opening. The top five lined up single file as they broke away from the rest of the pack. On lap 19, Quam took a second look under Peterson, this time drawing even as they battled for the lead. Quam took control of the top spot on lap 22 while Ryan Goldade began to work over Behlke for third. Goldade grabbed the third position just before a caution slowed the field on lap 27. Quam restarted as the leader with Peterson in second and Goldade riding in third. As racing resumed, Goldade and Peterson made contact entering turn one resulting in Peterson spinning for the second and final caution. As the field got back to racing, Quam continued to show the way with Behlke now in second and Dylan Schuyler up to third. Quam was never seriously challenged as the laps wound down and he cruised to the checkers for the win. Behlke was second followed by Schuyler, Pendleton and Ty James.
