Tatnell Four Time Winner of Richert Memorial


IRA Interstate Racing Association

Tatnell Four Time Winner of Richert Memorial

After an action packed Friday night, the teams of the Bumper to Bumper IRA sprints traveled north to New Richmond, Wisconsin for perhaps the most prestigious race of the season, the 20th Annual Jerry Richert Memorial.

Though the state faced weather all week, and into the day on Saturday, the track proved to be racy early as both Justin Henderson and Paige Polyak won their heat races from the third position. But the most impressive performance early in the night may have came from Sage Fruit Top Apple Rookie of the Year contender Danny Schlafer, who picked up a dash win over some of the strongest cars in the pits including Justin Henderson and Friday night's winner Hunter Schuerenberg, putting himself on the pole for the A main.

When the green flag flew to start the A main, Brooke Tatnell took the early lead as Bill Balog and Justin Henderson battled for third behind Schlafer. Henderson would take third and then quickly move past Schlafer for second. Tatnell would slice his way through lapped traffic keeping Henderson and Balog behind him until inside of 10 laps to go when Justin Henderson jumped the cushion in turn two and got upside down bringing out the red flag. Under the caution it became apparent that Bill Balog had a right rear tire going down. He would stay out in the second position, and attempt to run the slowly deflating tire, but just a couple laps back to green the caution would wave again, this time for Bill Balog who’s right rear had blown. This time Jordan Goldesberry would restart in second with Schuerenberg in third. Meanwhile, Danny Schlafer who had fallen back as far as eleventh had raced his way back to the fourth spot. Jordan Goldesberry began to run the middle of the track, a line that appeared could be faster then Tatnell's line around the high side, but another red flag would fly, this time for Danny Schlafer who got into the wall and then upside down attempting to work past Hunter Schuerenberg for third. Once the race restarted, there was just five laps left. Goldesberry continued to try and make the middle work while Tatnell rode the cushion. Goldesberry kept Tatnell's 2KS machine within striking distance but could not overtake it. When the checkered waved Brooke Tatnell was victorious, becoming the only four time winner of the event honoring his father in law.
