Goldesberry Goes Two for Two with Hopf Farms Bullring Showdown Series

Goldesberry Goes Two for Two on Hopf Farms Bullring Showdown Series
By Madeline "Chatty Madi" Schultz

Nimee and Balog would be the first to drag race around 141 Speedway. Balog would lead lap one, but we would draw out the first caution for Flick before the entirety of the field crossed the flagstand. We would double up the field once more, but Goldesberry and Nimee would be the first to battle.

Nimee would lead lap one try two, but Goldesberry would take over the second lap. Balog would attempt to peak underneath the 79 after, but didn’t work that time. Goldesberry would begin to hit lap traffic with half a dozen in. Blake Nimee and Bill Balog would begin to reel in Goldesberry during this time. Both of those competitors would weave through traffic on the cushion as 10 laps were scored.

Goldesberry would continue to lead the way, but Balog would pass the lakehomeretreats.com 79 for second with seventeen to go. Goldesberry, with a commanding 2.5 second lead, had just ten more laps to go in order to clinch another win at 141 Speedway.

Balog would be on the tailtank of Goldesberry again as they counted down to 9 laps to go. Goldesberry and Balog would weave through competitors but Goldesberry would still be on top. Heavy traffic would arise for the defending champion, causing Goldesberry to wash up in turns 1 and 2 allowing the North Pole Nightmare to draw closer. Five laps would remain for the defending champion when the second caution of the feature would wave for the 4K of Spitz.

Jordan Goldesberry’s lead would vanish and Balog and Nimee would be breathing down his neck. We’d crack the whip for five more circuits around the speedway. On the green, Goldesberry would jump to the cushion to battle Balog on the bottom. Rockstar Energy Drink’s Jordan Goldesberry would count the laps down on the cushion to take the checkered on the night. Goldesberry would take round two of the Hopf Farms Bullring Showdown.

Next weekend is the weekend race fans have been waiting for. On Friday, June 2nd, the All Star Circuit of Champions return to battle in the Badger state at the Horsepower Half Mile of Dodge County Fairgrounds. Wisconsin Sprint Car’s largest payday will take place on Saturday, June 3rd at the Plymouth Dirt Track for the Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race worth $26,000 to win. With the expected number of fans at these two races, we encourage fans to purchase tickets in advance. For all tickets, please visit www.irasprints.com/schedule
