By Jack Walbring


QUINCY, IL (May 20, 2012) - Dustin Griffin, Dave Wietholder, Abe Huls, Tony Dunker, Jake Powers and Nick Wilkerson all scored feature event wins at Quincy Raceways on Sunday May 20 during JR Scrap Metals Night at the Races.

 Griffin became the first two time UMP Super Late Model feature event winner for the 2012 season. Mark Burgtorf took off into the lead of the thirty lap main event and held Griffin at bay until the fifth lap with Griffin gaining the advantage with a nifty high side move. Griffin then held the lead the rest of the way to the checkered flag to claim his second feature win in a row while a battle raged between Burgtorf and Michael Long for the second spot. Long eased ahead of Burgtorf during the closing laps but could never make the pass stick until the final lap when he nailed down the second spot. Burgtorf settled for third, Ricky Frankel fourth and Jason Perry fifth. Griffin and Long were the heat race winners with Burgtorf claiming the dash win.

 Michael Long drew the pole position for the Miller Lite UMP Modified main event with Danny Lake on the outside of row one. Long jumped into the early lead but several caution flags slowed the early laps keeping the field close. David Wietholder stayed on Long’s rear bumper and when a lapped car became an obstacle, Wietholder setup the pick and managed to take the lead with Long battling back into the lead on the next circuit on lap thirteen but Wietholder roared back on lap fourteen and took the lead for good. Steven DeLonjay joined in the war as Long pulled into the pits on the eighteenth lap and kept the pressure on Wietholder until the checkered flag fell on lap twenty five. DeLonjay settled for second followed by Jared Schlipman in third, Shawn Deering in fourth and Robbie Reed in fifth. Lake, Deering and Long were the heat race winners.

 Abe Huls grabbed the lead of the fifteen lap IMCA Stock Car main event at the end of the first circuit and held off all challengers to take his third win of the year. Aaron Brocksieck held on for the second spot followed by Jerry Jansen in third, Terry Houston in fourth and Darin Weisinger in fifth. Michael Larsen was the heat race winner.

 Bobby Anders held the early lead in the IMCA Northern SportMod main event but Tony Dunker was never far behind. A lap eight caution flag setup the restart with Dunker using the middle groove to pull ahead at the end of lap nine. Dunker then went on to claim the feature win with Vance Wilson scoring second followed by Anders in third, Brad Holtmeyer fourth and Joe Bliven in fifth. Anders scored the lone heat race win.

 Jake Powers scored his third feature event win in five starts in the Quincy Hobby Stock main event. Powers held off Brandon Symmonds in second, Jamie Bevill in third, Justin Bevill in fourth and Nathan Hayes in fifth. Symmonds and Brian Hoener were the heat race winners.

 Nick Wilkerson made his first ever trip to Quincy Raceways a memorable one by taking the feature event win in the IMCA Sport Compact division. Wilkerson kept Kimberly Abbott at bay in second, followed by Chuck Fullenkamp in third, Seith Woodruff in fourth and Andrew Davis in fifth. Fullenkamp and Abbott were the heat race winners.

 Coming up next at Quincy Raceways will be the Gem City Ford Night at the Races on Sunday May 27 with racing in all six Quincy Raceways divisions, UMP Super Late Models, Miller Lite UMP Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, IMCA Northern SportMods, Quincy Hobby Stocks and the IMCA Sport Compacts.
