This week in Crash & Burn we returned to Ames Memorial Superspeedway for one more practice week before entering this coming Sunday’s OktHOberfest event. Pat Schroeder continued his incredible start to 2014 by locking up his 2nd feature win, both coming from the same track. After just 3 weeks Pat is really on his way to a fantastic 2014 Hobby Stock season. Pat was also the top points man for the even coming away with 23 followed by Bill Martin, Rich Hohlfeld, and Jake Shimshak all earning themselves 22 points for the night. Paul Shimshak came in 3rd on points coming home with 21.
In The late models we saw the return of J.D. Stacy sponsorship on Bill Martin’s new #39 Camaro. Despite the new sponsorship it was Paul Gilbertson who took home top points this week in his #5 STP/Sungowi Camaro. Paul came home with 23 points followed closely by Bill Martin, Tom Lange, and Kevin Owen who all earned 21 points. 5th points position fell to Jake Shimshak with another strong week under his belt.
Limited Late Models were the next event and this time around Jake Shimshak in his #16oz Old Milwaukee Monte Carlo showing everyone how it’s done. Jake came away with 25 points followed by Paul Gilbertson with 22, Kevin Owen with 21, Bill Martin with 20, and Rich Hohlfeld with 18.
Final event for the night was the Vintage Grand National series. Once again showing their muscle were Paul Gilbertson and Jake Shimshak who earned 24 points and 23 points respectively. Following them was Rich Hohlfeld with 21 points in his #6 1957 Ford, Kevin Owen pulling in 20 points in his #16 white 1957 Ford, and Bill Martin with 19 in the #7UP 1956 Merc.
This week’s Lead Foot of the Week goes to Jake Shimshak.
Congrats to all drivers and we’ll see you next time at the OktHOberfest Event at Ames Memorial Superspeedway!
