McCarl gets back on track at Huset's, Zomer wins from Last

By Shawn Neisteadt

(June 13, 2004-Sioux Falls, SD) It was a picture perfect night at Huset's Speedway. Full pit area, full grandstand and that all combined for one exciting night of racing.

The start of the Outlaw Sprint feature had Mike Moore and Marlon Jones battling with Jones grabbing the lead at the completion of the first lap. Jake Peters had a great first lap as he drove from the fourth row into the top five. It was Gregg Bakker on the move with one lap counted as he drove from the fifth row to fifth place. On the third lap Bakker passed Bill Boles for fourth. Peters was trying to make his way back into the top five on the fourth lap when he jumped the turn one cushion and lost several positions. On the fifth circuit, Bakker continued his charge as he took third from Ryan Voss.

Chad Meyer drew the first caution of the event when he spun the #1w in turn four. On the resulting restart, Terry McCarl took over fifth from Bill Boles and Bakker drove past Moore for second as they races into turn three.

The race was six laps old when Bakker drove past Jones for the lead entering the first turn. One lap later, McCarl took third from Moore, but Moore drove back ahead of McCarl to start the eighth trip around the track. Moore continued to look strong as he then took second from Jones. The caution waved for the second time in the 25 lap event on lap 9 when Jones looped the #5x in turn one.

McCarl wasted no time on the restart and took second from Moore as they drove onto the backstretch. Micah Schliemann drove fourth with Gary DeWall moving into the top five on the same restart. The caution waved again on lap 11 when Voss spun.

One lap after the restart, Schliemann drove past Moore for third. On the thirteenth lap Bakker had McCarl wheel-to-wheel with him for the lead. McCarl became the new race leader as they drove off turn four. Traffic slowed the leaders progress with ten laps remaining. On the seventeenth lap, DeWall drove past Moore for fourth place. With six laps to count, Moore drove into turn one and hooked the cushion. That sent the #69 into a bicycle heading straight for the wall, but the Des Moines driver held on and brought the car back to the earth. That allowed Peters to finally make his way back into the top five.

McCarl was out front and scored his third win of the Huset's season. Bakker came from tenth for second with Schliemann passing six cars for third. DeWall drove from fourteenth to fourth with Peters rounding out the top five.

Brandon Rokusek took the initial lead of the 360 sprint 18 lap feature. Bill Fredin didn't like the view for long as he grabbed the lead as they came to complete the opening lap. Cody Hansen then took fourth from Brock Dump. On the second lap, Hansen took third from Mitch Runge. The race was halted with three laps counted when Jody Rosenboom spun entering turn one. On the other end of the track, Rokusek tipped his #42w. Rokusek walked away unharmed. The #12 of Brock Dump also sustained damage in the incident and dropped out of the top five when racing resumed. On the fourth lap, Butch Hanssen and Terry Reilly began to swap fifth place. That battle lasted for several laps. On the eighth lap, Shawn Van Wyhe took third from Runge as they raced off turn two. On the next lap, Hanssen took fourth from Runge as they passed the finish line.

The race had 10 laps in the books when Cody Hansen spun in turn three and sat stalled on the top of the track. Reilly had no where to go and slammed into the stalled car bringing out another red flag. Both drivers were unharmed.

Dusty Zomer was now in the top five with eight laps to go. Zomer charged into fourth as they green waved and then took third from Hansen in turn four. Zomer then took second from Van Wyhe with Hanssen following forward on lap 11.

The race had just three laps remaining when Zomer pulled the slide-job past Fredin entering turn three.

Zomer led from there to the finish to give him his first win of the year. Zomer had started dead last after ignition problems forced him to run the "B" feature. Fredin led the majority of the race, but finished second with Hanssen coming from thirteenth to take third. Van Wyhe and Runge rounded out the top five.

Howard Baartman was the car on the move in the Late Model Stock Car feature. Baartman starting eighth and drove to the lead on lap seven. The 22-year racing veteran went on to score his first win of the year. Lee Schlumbohm drove from twelfth to take second with Perry Tschetter in third. Jesse Ackermann came back from a flat tire on lap seven to place fourth. Gary Brown, Jr. rounded out the top five.

After an opening lap incident placed both of the front row starters of the Hobby Stock feature on the infield, it was all Chad Patch as he led all 12 laps to score his first ever win. Lane Brenden took second with Mark Van Den Top third. Justin Arends and Tony Guischer rounded out the top five.
