Garner, Dobmeier take top feature wins in Outlaw Sprints at Huset's Speedway

By Shawn Neisteadt

(June 6, 2004-Sioux Falls, SD) With rain falling the week before, the make-up Outlaw Sprint feature was added to the already busy schedule of racing at Huset's. The packed stands could not be disappointed with the great racing they witnessed.

Mike Moore jumped to the lead of the first NMRA Outlaw Sprint 25 lap feature, but it was Clint Garner taking the top spot off turn four. Garner led the leaders into traffic five laps into the race. At the same time Mark Dobmeier took sixth form Dusty Ballenger. Gregg Bakker took second from Moore on lap eight as they raced off turn four. Dobmeier was moving as he took fifth from Micah Schliemann on lap eleven then fourth from Chad Meyer. One lap later Dobmeier was into third as he passed Moore.

The red flag was displayed over the track with fourteen laps counted as Moore flipped in turn two collecting Schliemann. Both drivers were unharmed and were back for the second feature.

Chad Meyer took third from Dobmeier on the restart and then took second from Bakker on lap 17. Garner led the race back to slower traffic on lap 19 and had a five car length advantage over Meyer, Bakker, Dobmeier and Terry McCarl, who had just moved into the top five. With just four laps to go, Dobmeier slowed on the track and pulled in, ending his run in the top five.

Garner piloted his Midwest Excavating #40 flawlessly to grab his first win of the season. Meyer had his best finish of the season in second with Bakker third. McCarl drove from nineteenth to fourth and Gary DeWall crossed the finish fifth.

In the second Outlaw Sprint feature of the night, Chad Radel took the initial lead. Micah Schliemann was returning with a vengeance from the first feature altercation and drove from eighth to fifth on the opening lap. With one lap counted Schliemann motored past John Lambertz and Chris Shirek to take third. Out came the red flag on with two laps ran when Marlon Jones flipped in turn two and tangled with Jordan Martens.

The passing resumed just as soon as racing resumed on the track. Schliemann took second form Ryan Voss on the restart as Lambertz took fourth from Shirek. The shuffle continued on lap three when Dobmeier took the fifth place then drove into third. Lambertz was also hooked up as "Longhair" took third. The race slowed with five laps counted as Terry McCarl slowed on the backstretch and came to a stop.

Radel led Schliemann, Lambertz, Dobmeier and Voss back to the green with 20 laps remaining. One lap after the restart, Dobmeier drove past Lambertz to take third. Shirek drove back into the top five as the overtook Voss. Lynton Jeffrey was not going to be left out of the party as he drove into fifth on lap seven.

Radel had Schliemann and Dobmeier on his tail as they drove back to lap traffic on lap eight. Schliemann and Radel were side by side on lap eleven with Radel holding on to the lead as they raced off four. The cars again slowed with a caution on lap eleven. This time it was Mike Moore slowing on the track that drew the yellow.

Shirek restarted sixth, and amazingly did not loose a spot when he turned a pair of 360 turns in turn two. However, that did allow the top five (Radel, Schliemann, Dobmeier, Lambertz and Jeffrey) to pull away. The race was just half-way over and the battles continued up front. Radel and Schliemann were again even on lap thirteen. Radel held on to the lead until lap 17 when Schliemann drove into the lead. It was Radel's lucky bread though as the #2H of Ryan Voss has spun and drew a caution. The scoring put Radel back into the lead.

The action was still hot on the restart as Dobmeier pulled into second as he took the position from Schliemann off turn two. Jeffrey was moving now as he passed Schliemann for third, but Schliemann retook the spot in turn four. Radel now had the #13 of Dobmeier along side him on lap 18. Radel held on until Dobmeier charged to the lead entering the first turn on lap 19. Jeffrey then shot out of a cannon and drove into second off turn two. Lambertz had make his was past Schliemann and then he went into third on lap 20 as he passed Radel. Schliemann followed into fourth. Lap traffic was again an issue on lap 22. With just three trips around the track remaining, Jeffrey was looking for the lead, but instead found the wall in turn four. The contact damaged the suspension and slowed the #10 machine. That would draw a caution as the field was taking the white flag. Lynton has saw his chance at his first win of the year go with his suspension.

Dobmeier led as the field came to a green-white-checkered shoot-out. Schliemann took second from Lambertz on the restart, but no one was about to catch Dobmeier as he took his second Huset's Speedway win.

"I had a good run going in the first feature and the steering sector blew out. I won the heat race and that built up my confidence for the second feature," said Dobmeier after his win. "The yellows woke me up. I saw the rubber laying down and I snuck by Micah (Schliemann) and Radel." Those were the last two cars in front of the seventh place starting winner.

Schliemann drove from eighth to take second with Lambertz third. Gary DeWall came from eleventh to take fourth and Garner drove from tenth to take fifth. Dobmeier, Schliemann and Meyer were the heat race winners.

If you think that was a lot of racing, there is more as the other three classes all had full night of action.

Randy Droescher took the initial lead of the 360 sprint feature, but Jordan Martens moved into the top spot with three laps counted. On the fourth lap Jody Rosenboom took over fourth from Mitch Runge. The first caution of the feature waved when the #99 of Shawn Van Wyhe spun in turn four.

Droescher had re-gained the lead and brought the field back to the green with 12 laps remaining. Dusty Zomer took fifth on the restart from Runge. One lap later Zomer piloted his #1 past Martens and Rosenboom to take second. Rosenboom moved into third. The red flag stopped the cars with eight laps counted when the #3d of Dusty Ballenger took a slap on the turn four wall. Ballenger was unharmed.

One lap after the restart, Zomer grabbed the lead from Droescher with Rosenboom taking second. Terry Reilly was on the rim of the track and moved into third on lap eleven. Reilly then passed Rosenboom on lap twelve for second. Rosenboom then slowed on the track to draw a caution with just five laps to go.

On the restart, it was Reilly racing past Zomer and to the victory. The second win of the year at Huset's for Reilly. Zomer was second with third going to Droescher. Eric Lutz was fourth and Martens rounded out the top five. Rosenboom, Lutz and Brent Vonk won the heat races. The "B" feature went to Lee Goos Jr.

The final laps to the Late Model Stock Car feature were a showdown between Lee Schlumbohm and Gary Brown, Jr. Schlumbohm held strong to his lead to take his third win and second in a row. Brown settled for second with third going to Rick Vander Weide. Jesse Ackerman took fourth with fifth going to Don Bickett. Schlumbohm and Vander Weide won the heat races.

Colter Deutch took the win in an unbelievable Hobby Stock feature. Deutch had the lead on the white flag but found himself as well as two other cars tangled up and spinning. That put Deutsch to the tail of the field for the final two laps to the finish. Deutch would drive from the back to the win in just two laps. Deutsch had a busy weekend as he took the win Friday in Rock Rapids and got married on Saturday. Scott Borkowski was second with Justin Arends third. Brett Larson and Jeff Deighton rounded out the top five. Deutsch, Tony Guischer and Dave Beman won the heat races.
