JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, May 18, 2013) Dale Nottestad of Cambridge charged to the front of the field on Saturday night at Jefferson Speedway and drove away to capture the B&M Electric 50 lap feature. The win marks Nottestad’s second in a row at Wisconsin’s Action Track as he battles for a spot at the top of the standings.
Brandon Pendleton and Craig Phillips paced the field of 18 of the area’s best Late Model pilots as the green flag flew to start the action. Pendleton grabbed the early lead on lap one with Ryan Goldade sliding up to second. On lap two, Goldade made his move to the front of the field as he drove to the low of Pendleton. The duo raced side by side until Goldade took control of the point on lap four. Tory Bagley followed past Pendleton for second just as the first of two cautions waved on lap ten. As racing resumed, Nottestad made his way into the top five. Nottestad squeaked by Pendleton for third right before the second caution waved on lap 14. Once the green flag returned, Nottestad continued his trek to the front, moving past Bagley and setting his sights on Goldade. On lap 17, Nottestad dove under Goldade entering turn one. The pair of drivers battled wheel to wheel for a lap until Nottestad gained possession of the lead on lap 18. Nottestad began to stretch his lead as the laps ticked away. Zack Riddle continued to slice his way towards the front with Casey Johnson following him through the field. Riddle managed to get to second in the closing laps, but Nottestad was well on his way to taking home the trophy for the second week in a row. At the checkers, it was Nottestad by a wide margin followed by Riddle, Johnson, Goldade and Bagley.
