Balog Wins Two Out of Three - Mother Nature Gets One

Labor Day weekend traditionally means an action packed 3 day stretch of races for the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprints. The weekend would start Friday at the Dodge County Fairgrounds, then head to the Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday and concluding in Maribel Wisconsin’s 141 Speedway on Sunday.

Friday’s Harry Neitzel Memorial at the “Horsepower Half Mile” saw 29 teams compete with Bill Balog setting quick time. Scotty Neitzel, Joey Moughan and Scotty Thiel all picked up heat race wins. Bill Balog won the first dash and Scotty Neitzel won the second, while Josh Schneiderman picked up the B main, setting the stage for 25 laps around the lightning quick facility.

Bill Balog took the early lead while Scotty Thiel and Jake Blackhurst quickly moved into second and third. Thiel had his sights set on Balog and was able to track him down in lapped traffic. Before Thiel could make a move the caution would fly. Cautions appeared to be Thiel's worst enemy, as Balog in open air was nearly impossible to beat. Thiel once again tracking Balog down in traffic would jump the cushion and get into the wall, sending his 64 machine upside down and bringing out the red flag. With the field bunched back up, Scotty Neitzel was able to work back into 2nd but had nothing for Balog as he claimed the victory.

Saturday saw 30 teams on hand for round four of the Hopf Farms Bullring Showdown. Ryan Ruhl making the trip from ColdWater, Michigan set quick time while Kyle Schuett, Danny Schlafer, and Josh Schneiderman picked up heat race wins. The dash’s were won by Bill Balog and Scotty Thiel respectively and Sean Rayhall won the B main.

Thiel and Balog set a torrid pace battling for the lead as they entered lapped traffic which Joey Moughan not far behind. With 13 laps in Josh Schneiderman and Moughan had worked past Thiel as a red flag would fly for Travis Arenz in a third Oz Motorsports entry, Arenz would be okay but not restart. The restart would see contact between Thiel and Moughan send Thiel flipping into the turn four fence ending his night. In the waning laps Schneiderman would utilize the bottom of the raceway to work past Balog and take the lead, but with just 2 laps to go Schneiderman entered lapped traffic and Balog was able to use a lapped car as a pick and steal the lead and win away from Schneiderman.

Sundays event at 141 Speedway was unfortunately canceled do to area storms.
