Bailey, Wietholder, Brocksieck, Dunker, Hoener and Abbott Claim Feature Wins at Quincy
By Jack Walbring

QUINCY, IL (April 8, 2012) - Easter Sunday brought about some of the best racing ever at Quincy Raceways as Matt Bailey laid claim to the feature win in the UMP Super Late Model division after a hard fought battle with Bobby Pierce. Dustin Griffin took the early lead in the 30 lap main event from his pole position starting spot and looked to be on his way to victory by a lap seventeen caution flag brought the field back together with Bobby Pierce grabbing the top spot on the restrart with Griffin falling to third behind Matt Bailey in second. Pierce held Bailey at bay until lap twenty seven  when Bailey powered by on the high side to take a slim lead. Bailey held on for two circuits until Pierce pulled a clean slide job in turn one and two heading to the white flag but Bailey grabbed the lead by with a bold outside pass on the final lap to claim his first UMP Super Late Model feature event victory. Pierce held on for second followed by Griffin in third, Justin Reed in fourth and Brandon Sheppard in fifth. Griffin and Sheppard were the heat race winners with Griffin taking the win in the Summy Tire and Auto Center Dash.

 The Miller Lite UMP Modified main event was another real barnburner as David Wietholder held off a very determined Michael Long over the final fifteen laps of the twenty five lap main event. Wietholder lead evey lap but had to hold back Long in a closely contested contest over the final laps with Wietholder taking the checkered flag only .056 of a second ahead of Long. Third went to Robbie Reed followed by Steven DeLonjay in fourth and Jared Schlipman in fifth. DeLonjay, Reed and John Coultas were the heat race winners.

 Aaron Brocksieck took the lead in the IMCA Stock Car main event on the second circuit and dominated the rest of the way to the checkered flag to take his first win of the season. Terry Houston battled his way into the second spot at the checkered flag followed by Jerry Jansen in third, Michael Larson in fourth and Darin Weisinger in fifth. Houston took the lone heat race win.

 Jim Gillenwater took the early lead in the Summy Tire and Auto Center IMCA SportMod main event at the drop of the green flag and looked strong to take the feature event win but after a restart on lap seven, Gillenwater suffered engine woes giving the lead over to Tony Dunker. Dunker then went on to a dominating victory in the twenty lapper followed by Brandon Ruffcorn in second, Joe Bliven in third, Brad Holtmeyer in fourth and Brandon Dale in fifth. Gillenwater and Dunker were the heat race winners.

 Brian Hoener took his first ever Hobby Stock feature event win in dominating fashion by holding off Jeremy Buss in second, Jake Powers in third, Brandon Symmonds in fourth and Nathan Hayes in fifth. Hoener and Buss were the heat race winners.

 Kimberly Abbott took the feature event win in the wild and crazy IMCA Sport Compact division by holding off several different challengers during the event. The second spot went to Andrew Davis followed by Seith Woodruff in third, Chuck Fullenkamp in fourth and Mike Hornung Jr. in fifth. Davis and Fullenkamp were the heat race winners.
