Hanna Raley Wins First Career Bandit Feature

Saturday, May 28, 2016

Hanna Raley of Fall River, WI captured her first ever A-Main Feature event Saturday Night at Dells Raceway Park by holding of multitime track champion James Junget to score the win.

Josh Mazur of Reedsburg, WI and Hunter Poehnelt a Club Lamark 2016 Rookie of the Year contender from Spring Green, WI brought the field to green with Dalton Schneider a Mazomanie pilot and Raley taking chase. As the field spread out it was current DRP point leader Jim Lapp making his was thru traffic followed by Junget as the always fast Nick Schmidt and Rookie Abe Bires were making their presents known. As the laps wound down it would be Schmidt and Bires putting on a side by side battle for the lead after starting deep in the field but with five laps to go the pair of leaders started swapping paint and both wound up spinning relegating both drivers to the rear of the field and it was Raley who was now the new leader. On the restart Raley would not be denined her first feature win holding off Junget, Lapp and John Preston at the line with Bires worklng his way back to fifth. In earlier action if was Schmidt setting fast time and winning the Ziegler Crane Dash and rookie Hunter Poehnelt capturing his first ever victory in the Bandit heat. A Big Thank You to all the drivers, teams and fans who braved the threat of rain in the area to come out and see a great night of racing at your very own Dells Raceway Park.
