Great Racing and Wild Finishes at Quincy Raceways

By Jack Walbring 

QUINCY, IL (August 7, 2011) - Mark Burgtorf, Michael Long, Aaron Brocksieck, Tanner Klingele and Todd Nelson all laid claim to feature event wins during the Budwesier Rinella Distributing Night at the Races on Sunday, August 7 at Quincy Raceways.

 Billy Genenbacher and Lonnie Bailey led the fourteen car Budweiser IMCA Late Model main event to the green flag with Bailey leading the first fourteen laps until Joey Gower slipped past to take the lead. Gower held on to the lead until lap twenty six when Keith Pratt powered past for the top spot but Pratt was about to have some serious mechanical problems as his left front tie rod broke and his brakes went out. Pratt held on to the lead until coming off the final corner when disaster struck as a lapped car and a fast closing Mark Burgtorf closed up onto Pratt. Pratt ended up rolling his car, flying through the air and coming to a stop but not before Burgtorf, Gower and Lonnie Bailey crossed the finish line as the checkered flag waved. Pratt managed to score fourth followed by Justin Reed in fifth. Pratt and Bailey were the heat race winners. Pratt closed to within four points of points leader, Justin Reed as only eleven points separate the top 5 of Reed, Pratt, Lonnie Bailey, Denny Woodworth and Gower.

 Steven DeLonjay was on a mission to set a new feature win streak record in the Miller Lite UMP Modified division but the other twenty one entrants were not going to lay down and just let him take the win. Michael Long pulled into the lead of the main event on the third lap and held off some very serious challenges from Jared Schlipman through lap twelve with DeLonjay nipping at the heals of Schlipman. DeLonjay pulled into second of lap thirteen as Schlipman began to fade back. DeLonjay kept up the challenge to Long until a lap twenty one caution set up a restart with DeLonjay and Long restarting side by side but it did play out as expected as Chris Spaulding came blasting past DeLonjay for the second spot. Spaulding kept up the pressure on Long but slipped up on the final lap allowing DeLonjay one last slot at Long which did not bear out. Long took the win with DeLonjay in second, Spaulding in third, Schlipman in fourth and Ray Bollinger in fifth. Craig Spegal, DeLonjay and Schlipman were the heat race winners. DeLonjay now holds a significant ninety five point lead over Schlipman in his quest for the Track Points Championship.

 The Triple R Performance Engines IMCA Stock Cars put on their regular great feature event racing as Aaron Brocksieck powered his way to his third feature event win of the season. Kevin Tomlinson scored second followed by Andrew Griffin in third, Abe Huls in fourth and Terry Houston in fifth. Andrew Griffin took the heat race win. Brocksieck now holds a nine point advantage over Houston in the points chase.

 Tanner Klingele put on a dominating performance in the KRNQ Pepsi Inside Track Hobby Stock main event as he lead all twenty laps, but it was not without some effort as he held off Bobby Anders over the final two thirds of the event. Anders settled for second followed by Adam Scott, Steve Carlin and Brandon Symmonds. Jim Powell and Carlin were the heat race winners. Carlin now holds a twenty five point lead in the Track Points Championship battle over Jake Powers.

 Todd Nelson took the feature event win in the Summy Tire and Auto Center Wild Things main event, his third in six tries. Seth Woodruff held on for second followed by Craig Bangert in third, Robert Thompson in fourth and Kimberly Abbott in fifth. Casey Kendrick and Nelson were the heat race winners. Woodruff now holds a slim two point margin over Kendrick as Kendrick had mechanical problems in the feature race.
