Saturday, May 21, 2016

Wisconsin Dells, WI. Doug Paul from Montello WI won the Sportsman Division SynMax Lubricants 25 Saturday Night at Dells Raceway Park by holding off a late charge from Warrons,WI. driver Mitch Lyden to win at the wire by 0.151 seconds. New comer Taylor Dawson was to bring the field to green from the pole but a fuel leak in the warm up laps religated the Burlington, WI driver to the rear of the field, So it was Brandon Birdsi...ll and Philip Smith, a pair of beautiful green cars bringing the Sportsman A-Main field to the start on a full moon night, what could go wrong ? With a smooth start to the race it was Birdsill taking the early lead marching the field thru the first 11 laps. Then on lap 12 is was veteran racer Doug Paul who took his yellow Chevy to the top spot leaving Birdsill in a epic side by side battle with Mitch Lyden in his Ford Mustang for the second spot. Inside 5 to go the caution flag flew for a spinning Philip Smith whos brand new Chevy Camaro had broke an oil line and caught fire in turn 2. After the caution the field was set in a 3 lap shootout with Lyden filling the mirrors of Paul, and on the last lap Lyden pulled even with Paul but came up inches short at the line. For the Veteran Doug Paul it was his first feature win of the season with Lyden second followed by Mahlon Borntreger, Birdsil and Steve Morgan rounding out the top five. In earlier action is was Kevin Gilding taking home the heat and Borntreger picking up the SS&E Concrete Sportsman Dash, while veteran Mitch Lyden set fast time.
