JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, May 11, 2013) On a chilly night at Wisconsin’s Action Track, Dale Nottestad of Cambridge heated things up by charging to the front of the field and staying there to win the Newville Auto Salvage 50 lap Late Model feature. The victory marks Nottestad’s first of the 2013 season after finishing off 2012 very strong by capturing the annual Wisconsin State Championships.
Tory Bagley and Dylan Schuyler led the field to green with Schuyler taking the early lead on lap one exiting turn four. Bagley dropped back to second with Roger Behlke running in third. On lap three Nottestad slid under Behlke into a battle for third. Nottestad claimed the spot on lap five and set his sights on Schuyler who had an eight car length advantage. Nottestad began reeling in the leader until finally catching him on lap 13. Nottestad dove under Schuyler entering turn as he drew even in a fight for the lead. A lap later, Nottestad moved into sole possession of top spot with Zack Riddle looking to follow into second. While Schuyler tried to hold off Riddle, Nottestad opened up a healthy lead over the field. Riddle eventually cleared for the second spot on lap 20 with Shaun Scheel in tow for third. The remainder of the caution free event saw Nottestad maintain his lead until crossing under the checkers to pick up the win. Riddle finished second followed by Shaun Scheel, Casey Johnson and Stephen Scheel.
