Jeffrey, Garner, Schliemann, Zomer, Freet and Eliason take wins at Huset's

By Shawn Neisteadt

(August 3, 2003-Sioux Falls, SD) A great crowd of cars and fans were on hand for the second annual Jay Egge Automatic Service All-Star Memorial race Sunday night at Huset's Speedway. The fans were treated to great racing action with double features in both of the sprint car classes.

Ryan Voss took the initial lead of the first Outlaw Sprint feature, but the race was halted before the first lap could be counted. Johnn Cressman tagged the backstretch wall and went around collecting the #0 of Jeff Davis. Both drivers were fine, however their cars sustained too much damage to get back into the feature.

On the complete restart, Jake Peters used the high side of the first set of turns to move from the second row to the lead on the backstetch. Clint Garner followed and moved into second. On lap two, Voss lost the third spot the Dusty Ballenger the Micah Schliemann moved into fourth on lap three taking the position from Voss. Gregg bakker moved his #11x into the top five on lap four.

Seven laps were counted as Garner followed Peters into lap traffic. On lap 11, Bakker continued to move forward and took fourth from Ballenger. John Lambertz followed and took fifth. The lap traffic was very dense on lap 13 for the leaders. A slower car interrupted Peters' momentum and that allowed Garner to dip low in turn one and take the top spot. The caution flag waved on lap 16 when the Dennis Moore, Jr. blew the engine in his Williams Motorsports car.

Gary DeWall was the man on the move on the restart as he used the low way around the track to take fifth from Terry McCarl, then fourth from Bakker and third from Schliemann all on the restart lap. McCarl found his way back into the top five on lap 17 when he passed Bakker. Schliemann battled back at DeWall and was able to use the cushion to retake third on the eighteenth trip around the speedway. McCarl took fourth place from DeWall on lap 20.

Out front the leaders were again in traffic on lap 21, but Garner could not be slowed. Garner drove the Vermeer Motorsports #55 into victory lane for the third time this year and for the second week in a row. Peters finished a strong second and third went to Schliemann. McCarl finished fourth from fourteenth and DeWall crossed the line fifth. That was not all for Outlaw action, as they took the finishing order of that feature and inverted it for another 25 lap feature.

Randy Rosenboom led the first lap of the second Outlaw sprint feature. Dusty Ballenger took the top spot one lap into the event. On the same lap, Chad Radel took third and Mark Dobmeier went into fourth as they overtook Ryan Voss. Radel moved into second on lap two as he went by Rosenboom and Lynton Jeffrey moved into fifth by Voss. The passing action continued on lap three when Dobmeier took third, Jeffrey took fourth and McCarl moved into fifth. The yellow flag waved five laps into the 25 lap race when Gary DeWall broke and stopped in turn one.

On the resulting restart, Dobmeier and McCarl battled wheel to wheel of turn two. Jeffrey made a bold three wide moved and shot from fifth to third entering turn three. Jeffrey was not stopping at third as he then took second from Radel. The yellow flag again waved on lap nine when Jim Smith stalled on the backstretch.

Jeffrey wasted no time on the restart and took the top spot from Ballenger as they came off turn two. McCarl shot past Radel and Dobmeier and took third entering turn three. On the tenth lap Dobmeier took third from Radel with a slide job in turn three. One lap later McCarl was in second as he took the position from Ballenger entering the third turn. The red flag waved with 15 laps counted when the #1 of Chris Shirek flipped in turn one. Shirek was unharmed in the incident.

The race resumed with ten laps remaining. Jeffrey ran out front for the rest of the distance for the win. During the closing laps, Dennis Moore, Jr. and Dobmeier spun in separate incidents in turn two. Both drivers kept their engines lit and drove off leaving the race green.

The win was the second for Jeffrey. McCarl finished second and the third spot went to Ballenger. Jake Peters came from seventeenth to take fourth and Radel rounded out the top five.

The 360 Sprint Cars also had double features.

Brent Vonk took the initial lead of the first 18 lap 360 sprint feature. Jake Peters, who was doing double duty, was the man on the move in the early laps as he took fifth from Randy Droescher one the first lap then on lap two Peters passed Brock Dump for fourth. The red flag waved with four laps down then the #99 of Shawn Van Wyhe spun in turn four. Terry Reilly tried to squeeze between the spinning car and the outside wall. That caused the #69H of Reilly to touch the wall and flip. VanWyhe was able to continue in the race while Reilly was unharmed, but sidelined for the rest of the first feature.

Peters continued his charge to the front on the restart as he took third from Joe Riedel. The top two cars fell victim on lap five off the fourth turn when Peters went by Lyle Howey III and Vonk for the lead. The red flag waved again on lap nine when the point leader, Butch Hanssen, appeared to blow the rear end out of the #8k. The car erupted in a huge ball of fire, but Hanssen was unharmed. The race resumed, but slowed again on lap 11 when Brock Dump slowed on the speedway.

Micah Schliemann was the man on the move after the lap 11 restart. Schliemann took fifth on the restart from Riedel then on lap 12 Schliemann passed Howey for fourth. With three laps to go, Schliemann took third away from Vonk. Heartbreak set in for Peters as his car slowed coming for the white flag. The caution came out and Peters went from the lead to the infield with an ill car.

The lead was then handed over to Dusty Ballenger. Ballenger led until the final turn when Schliemann slid into the lead for the win. Schliemann passed 15 cars for the win. Ballenger settled for second and third went to Vonk. Howey was fourth and Dusty Zomer finished fifth.

Randy Droescher led the early part of the second 360 sprint feature. Zomer was able to pass four cars on the first lap of the race to move from the fourth row and into the third spot. Zomer was not stopping there as he went by second and then by Droesher for the lead on lap four. Schliemann was again on the move as he took third from Howey on lap six. Schliemann and Droescher then got into a heated battle for second place. Both of those drivers got into trouble on lap 12 though. Schliemann made a bold move to the bottom of the first turn. That caused Schliemann to be completely sideways in turn two where Droesher made contact with the #9. Schliemann went to the infield during the caution with a flat tire while Droescher's #24 was able to continue with slight damage.

Zomer held on for his first ever win at Huset's Speedway and his second career win in a sprint car. "This is great. We got it hooked up tonight," said Zomer after the win. Terry Reilly came from sixteenth to take second. Droescher finished third and Butch Hanssen charged from fourteenth to fourth. Schliemann came back to round out the top five.

Don Bickett and Scott Freet traded the lead of the Late Model Stock Car feature several times during the 15 lap event. Freet used the high side to propel him to his third win of the season. Bickett finished second ahead of JJ Zebell. Gary Brown, Jr. came from tenth to take fourth and Scott Overgaard rounded out the top five.

Brad Cowell was leading the hobby stock feature when he lost a wheel forcing him to give up the lead and go to the infield. That gave the lead to Steve Eliason. Eliason went on for his first Huset's win of the year. Colter Deutsch came from ninth to second and third went to Lane Brenden. Jon DeBoer finished in fourth just ahead of his father, Bob DeBoer in fifth.
