Nimee Holds off Champions for Win at Wilmot

Nimee Holds off Champions for Win at Wilmot

Nimee and Schlafer would lead the field out of turn four for thirty circuits around Wilmot Raceway. Nimee would immediately pounce on the low side of the raceway and begin to run away from the rest of the field. The Lone Wolf of Danny Schlafer would be in striking distance of the Oswego, IL native as they head down the backstretch. Neitzel would challenge Schlafer for a second and would steal it momentarily. The North Pole Nightmare and the defending 2022 IRA Champion Jordan Goldesberry would be next to challenge for a podium finish.

Five laps in and Nimee would continue to lead the way around Wilmot Raceway. Nietzel second, Goldesberry third, Balog fourth, Schlafer fifth. Balog would take to the cushion and take fourth away from the Lone Wolf and knock on Goldesberry’s door for third. The Lightning Leprechaun of Russel Borland would also challenge for a top-five spot.

Balog passed Goldesberry for third and began to challenge the Iron Man Scotty Neitzel who was hanging onto second. Nimee would continue to weave through traffic as Goldesberry and Balog battled for second. Just as the action started to heat up, we’d have a caution for the 21 of Will Gerrits.

Nimee would have company in the form of Balog, Goldesberry, Neitzel, and Borland. Rookie of the Year contenders Travis Arenz and Brenham Crouch would be eighth and ninth on this restart.

Balog would jump to the cushion while others dove to the tractor tires. 10 laps remained for Blake Nimee and the 79 team. Balog and Goldesberry would be heading to slider city as they both exchanged second and third every lap. The top three separated from the rest as Balog continued to strike against Nimee and Goldesberry. Balog would take a two-for-one and pass for the lead, but Nimee quickly regained the lead.

White would wave and none of them were about to back down. Nimee would lead the group into turns one and two, Balog would challenge on the top of the backstretch and into turn three and four to pass Goldesberry for second, but Nimee would be victorious. Balog would settle for second, and Goldesberry third.
