Balog Victorious in Roger Iles Tribute at Kenosha County Fair

31 winged 410 sprint cars were on hand for the Roger Iles tribute race on Saturday night of the Kenosha County Fair. Scotty Thiel set quick time over Joey Moughan and Bill Balog. Former Wilmot Raceway track champion Todd Daun was fourth quick with Scott Biertzer in fifth.

Heat race number one saw Scotty Thiel quickly move from fourth to second behind Ben Schmidt. Thiel stalked Schmidt around the 3/8th oval for the entirety of the heat race but could not manage a pass. Schmidt claimed the victory over Thiel. Scott Biertzer was third followed by Steve Meyer and Dave Uttech.

The second heat race was claimed by Indiana’s Brandon Wimmer who led all ten laps en-route to victory. Russel Borland and Joey Moughan crossed the line in second and third followed by Bill Wirth and former Wilmot Raceway track record holder Brett Tripplet.

Heat three saw two former IRA champions do battle as Jeremy Schultz and Bill Balog fought for the lead. Schultz would claim the victory piloting the Captain Jim’s Yacht Sales 5J while Balog was forced to settle for second spot. The California transplant Austin Deblauw finished in the third position while Hunter Custer and Johnny Fahl rounded out the top five.

The fourth and final heat race saw another former IRA champion claim the victory, as Scotty Neitzel was first under the checkers. Jordan Goldesberry brought the Rock Solid 65 home in second followed by Todd Daun, Brayton Lynch and Nick Matuszewski.

The B main was claimed by the driver of the Bumper to Bumper of Paddock Lake 43, Jereme Schroeder. Brett Triplet brought the Darrell Dodd owned 11 home in second. Kris Spitz and Wayne Modjeski claimed the final transfer spots into the A main.

With the field set it was time for the 36 lap Roger Iles Tribute race. Scott Neitzel took the early lead in his 2w machine. Bill Balog started in the 5th position and slowly crept his way through the pack and Neitzel worked through lapped traffic. On lap 15 Balog had worked his way into second and set his sights on Neitzel. Just four laps later Balog was able to work his white and black car around Neitzel's orange car and take the lead. Balog wouldn’t look back, leading the remainder of the race and claiming the $3600 prize. Neitzel would cross in second spot followed by Ben Schmidt. Scotty Thiel brought his 64 machine home in fourth followed by Brandon Wimmer.
