Balog and Dodd Victorious at Semmelmann Memorial

On a beautiful September night in Wisconsin, 25 Bumper to Bumper winged outlaw sprints and 37 Wisconsin wingLESS teams entered the Beaver Dam Raceway for the Scott Semmelmann Memorial.

Scotty Neitzel set quick time in front of his hometown crowd in the 410s while Tim Cox was fastest in the wingLESS. Winged heat races were won by Jake Blackhurst, Scotty Thiel and Paul Nienhiser. Wisconsin wingLESS heat race winners were Derek Crane, Jimmy Sivia, Brian Kristan and Mitchell Davis. Hunter Custer won the B main for the 410s while Shawn Swim, and Zach Raidart took the wingLESS B's.

The wingLESS A main saw Chris Dodd take the lead early, but a yellow would negate that and set up a complete restart. Dodd again jumped out in front of the pack, but another caution in the early laps once again caused a restart. Jake Kouba was able to use the restart to propel past Dodd’s 01 and into the lead. Dodd stalked Kouba through lapped traffic looking for a way past. Dodd would find an opening and power around the yellow 6 to take the lead back. Dodd never looked back, picking up the win in dominant fashion. Jake Kouba finished second from the 12th starting position. Tim Cox was third followed by Greg Olsen. Zack Raidart rounded out the top five after starting 18th.

The winged 410 A main saw Scotty Thiel take the lead early in the Scott Thiel Builders 64. Thiel set a blistering pace out front running right against the wall. Thiel established a large gap over Russel Borland in second and Joey Moughan in third. Moughan would go to the bottom of the race track in turns three and four and move past Borland, but could not gain much ground on Thiel. In the closing laps, sixth starting Bill Balog worked into third and began working around Moughan. At the same time Thiel had gotten caught in lapped traffic and could not find the fast way around the surface. With one lap to go, Balog had moved into second and caught Thiel. Scotty Thiel decided to try and run through the middle of turns three and four looking for grip, but Bill Balog was able to get a better run off of turn four and by .055 seconds, the Rhine Auto 17B won. Thiel was second followed by Joey Moughan. Russel Borland was fourth and Jordan Goldesberry was fifth.
