Six Features, Six Winners at Huset’s Annual Egge All-Star Event.

By Shawn Neisteadt

(July 31, 2005–Sioux Falls, SD) With double features scheduled for the Outlaw Sprint Cars, plus a make up feature for the Late Model Stock Cars, a full night of action in the Hobby Stocks and 360 Sprints, the racing plate was heaping with goodies for the fourth annual Jay Egge All-Star Memorial Event at Huset’s.

The action of the first feature for the outlaw sprints was intense. Joe Riedel led the first four laps of the event, but then it was Lynot Jeffrey taking the lead in turn two with Gary DeWall following into second. Mark Dobmeier was charging as well as he took fifth from John Miller on lap four then fourth from Riedel one lap later with Justin Henderson in third. On lap six, Micah Schliemann found his way into the top five. Two laps later, the leaders raced into lap traffic. That traffic allowed Dobmeier to advance into third on lap nine as he overtook Henderson and DeWall. By the fifteenth lap, Dobmeier had reeled in Jeffrey. Chad Meyer was making moves at this point of the race as well as he took fourth from DeWall and then third from Henderson on lap 17. The lead swapped and fell into the hands of Dobmeier with seven laps to go as he passed Jeffrey off turn four. With six laps remaining, Jeffrey stole the lead back in turn two. With just three laps to go, Jeffrey and Dobmeier raced into turn three wheel to wheel. In turn one of the next lap, Dobmeier again took the lead.

The caution waved with just two laps to go when several cars banged on the front stretch and caused Jake Peters to come to a stop.

In the final two laps of the race, every position in the top five would shuffle, except for the leader. Dobmeier went on to the win ahead of Henderson who came back for second. Third went to Jeffrey. Schliemann was fourth with Dusty Zomer in fifth.

The entire finish of that event was then inverted for another 25 lap feature for the outlaw sprints. In this one, if Mark Dobmeier could come from the back, he would pick up a check for $10,000.

Jake Peters took the lead of the race at the drop of the great with John Lambertz following. By the fourth lap, Chad Meyer had already made his way from tenth to third. As Peters ran into traffic on lap five, Meyer took second from Lambertz. The lead that Peters had built up in those few laps was nearly half the distance around the speedway. With very dense traffic ahead of him, Peters saw his lead diminish to just 4 car lengths over Meyer by lap 8. The caution waved on lap 14 when Kenny Hansen spun on the front stretch. This gave all the drivers the opportunity to bunch back up, which is exactly what Dobmeier needed. The caution came out with ten laps to go when Jamie McDonald from New Zealand and Dusty Ballenger collided on the front stretch. By this point, Dobmier had made his way up to seventh.

With six laps to go, Dobmeier went by Lambertz and into the top five, but the laps counted down too fast as that is all the further he could make it. Peters took the win, his first at Huset’s this season. Chad Meyer was second with Zomer thrid. Gregg Bakker took fourth ahead of Dobmeier.

Each year a plaque is given to the driver that passes the most cars in the class on the memorial night, this year Mark Dobmeier edged out Dusty Zomer by only one pass to receive the award.

That may seem like a lot of sprint car action, but there was more as the 360 sprints also ran a full show.

After racing side by side for three laps, Jody Rosenboom took the lead of the 360 feature on lap ten in the first turn. That pass was the winning move as Rosenboom made his way into victory lane at Huset’s for the first time in 2005. Terry Reilly passed Casey Abbas for the second position in the final turn. Donovan Peterson was fourth ahead of Brent Vonk.

Jesse Drost and Dusty Ballenger each took a shot at the NMRA Hard Charger bonus, but neither would collect the $1321 bonus. However, Ballenger did pass the most cars in the feature and was recognized with the Memorial Plaque for his efforts.

The first A feature of the night was a make up from the week before when Mother Nature let loose a rain storm during the late model stock car feature. In that event, it was Lee Schlumbohm taking the lead from Jesse Akkerman with six laps to go. Schlumbohm, the defending track champion, went on to take the win. Akkerman was second ahead of Matt Steuerwald, Darrin Korthals and Dan Jensen.

In the feature event for the night, Jesse Akkerman would not settle for second another time. He took the lead from Steuerwald on lap 10 of the 16 lap event. Akkerman took the win, his first at Huset’s since 1996 in a Hobby Stock. Gary Brown Jr was second ahead of Don Gerritsen. Jr. Ray Sveegen was fourth with Rick VanderWeide fifth.

Mark VandenTop showed Huset’s Speedway why he is the four time and defending champion at Rapid Speedway. VandenTop, in his first start at Huset’s of the season, made his way from the back of the pack to take the win. Dave Schwans was second ahead of Brock Hess and Trent Weber. Justin Arends was fifth.
