McCarl Passes Brown for Third Richert Triumph

By Justin Zoch,

September 12, 2015: In a feature event that saw just one yellow flag, Terry McCarl used savvy and veteran patience to track down Brian Brown to take the 15th Annual Jerry Richert Memorial at Cedar Lake Speedway on Saturday night. It was the third time the Altoona, Iowa, driver had driven to victory in the prestigious event but the first time since 2004. The show was co-sanctioned by the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprints and the FVP National Sprint League and drew a great field of 39 Sprint Cars.

On the original start, Brian Brown raced from outside row number one to out duel polesitter Tim Kaeding for the lead. Tasker Phillips spun early in the race to bring out a yellow flag but that would be the last stoppage. Near the midway point, McCarl started closing the gap on Brown and then pounced on a slight miscue by Brown in turn two with a turn three slide job to take the top spot.

Brown repassed McCarl briefly but could never make it stick and the veteran McCarl drove away from him to win the 30-lap feature and the $3,500 winner’s check. Brown held on for second of Bronson Maeschen, Tim Kaeding and Bill Balog. McCarl’s win pushed the IRA streak of new winners to 16 consecutive races.

Heat races were won by Steve Meyer, Blake Nimee, Lynton Jeffrey and Craig Dollansky while Bill Balog was the first car out on the track and set quick time over the 11.141. Tasker Phillips prevailed in the B-main, which saw IRA Rookie of the Year contender Kyle Marten take a wild ride down the frontstretch. He was uninjured but it was not the ending he was hoping for in his Cedar Lake Speedway debut.
