JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, May 04, 2013) Jefferson’s Kyle Jarlsberg rebounded strongly after missing the feature field on opening night one week ago by claiming the checkers to win the Radio Doctor 50 lap Late Model main event at Jefferson Speedway. Jarlsberg took advantage of his front row starting position to motor into the lead and never give up the top spot on his way to victory lane.
Jarlsberg and Tory Bagley paced the field of 18 Late Models to the drop of the green flag with Jarlsberg taking control on lap one. Bagley dropped back to second followed by Chris Quam in third. An early caution slowed the action when Ty James made contact with the turn four wall ending his evening all too early. As racing resumed, Jarlsberg held the point with Bagley still second and Quam trying to hold off Stephen Scheel for third. On lap 10, Scheel got to the inside of Quam as they battled side by side. Scheel eventually completed the pass on lap 14 as Ryan Goldade tried to follow. Scheel continued to move forward, racing under Bagley as he tried to steal second. Scheel cleared for the runner up spot on lap 20 as he began to slowly reel in Jarlsberg out front. The leaders remained single file lap after lap as Dale Nottestad and quick qualifier Zack Riddle tried to break into the top five. Roger Behlke relinquished the fifth position just before spinning on lap 42 to bring out the second and final caution of the race. But Jarlsberg remained strong out front over the final eight circuits to see the checkers first and pick up the win. Scheel was second followed by Bagley, Nottestad and Riddle.
