(West Salem, WI July 27, 2013) Brad Powell outran a hard-charging
Steve Carlson to come out the victor in the Kwik Trip NASCAR Late Model feature
at La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway.
Powell and Carlson started in the back
of the pack and before long Powell was taking the lead from Matt Inglett.
Coming up through the pack behind
Powell was Todd Korish, J. Herbst and Carlson.
First up to challenge Powell was
Korish, but he didnt get far. Before Korish could make a move Carlson was on
his back bumper.
Carlson looked high, then low, and was
able to slide around Korish on the inside in the middle of turns three and four
to take the second spot.
He then set his sights on Powell.
While Carlson was trying to close the
gap on the leader, Herbst was battling Korish for the third spot.
Herbst and Korish battled back a forth
for a few laps, but in the end Herbst was able to secure the third spot.
Carlson got to the back bumper of
Powell as the leaders hit lap traffic. As they weaved through the cars Carlson
was moving in to pounce on the leader. But he never got the chance. The
checkered flag waved and Carlson finished second.
Herbst placed third, Korish fourth and
Adam Degenhardt fifth.
It was a battle of the fittest in the
Exhaust Plus Sportsmen feature.
After being challenged for the lead by
three different drivers, Jerrod Loging was able to capture the checkered flag.
Loging grabbed the lead early but then
had to fight off Bill Martin, Jake Arneson and Steve Bachman who where all
gunning for the top spot.
At the halfway point it looked as
though Bachman was going to succeed in overpowering Loging, but instead got
shuffled back to fourth after Martin squeezed past him for the second spot and
Arneson snuck into third.
The shuffling continued right up to the
last lap when Martin made a run on Loging, got loose and Arneson tried to steal
the second spot. He fell short though.
Martin was able to hold onto second,
Arneson third, Bachman fourth and Greg Scheck rounded out the top five.
Jordan Myers escaped with the feature
win in the United Auto Supply Thunderstox division after going three-wide for
the lead with Brad Warthan and Mark Challet.
Myers was able to jump to the point
when Adam Moore joined the three-car battle.
Moore, Warthan and Challet all tried to
overpower the leader, but none were able to gain enough ground.
second, Warthan third, Andy Moore fourth and Challet fifth.
