Trute Stays Hot in SynMax Sportsman

Saturday, June 11, 2016

Dave Trute of New Lisbon, WI was as hot as the weather on a hot muggy June night in the Dells as he won his second SnyMax Lubricants Sportsman Feature in as many weeks last Saturday night at Dells Raceway Park. Local favorite Sandy Cook paced the field to green and took the lead over Mahlon Borntreger as the race began but and early caution would spoil the recipe for victory that she was brewing after only... a few laps. As the field lined up in the Dells double file restart it was the crafty veteran Dave Trute who used the cone option for the outside lane and found himself in third for the restart. Trute using the high line past Steve Morgan and Cook and took the lead for himself and was clear until 5 laps to go when Doug Paul had a radiator let go heading in to turn one to bring out the final caution for the event. On the restart Trute found the 2015 Track Champion Scott Luck blowing the chrome horn looking for a way by, but Trute held on for the victory followed by Luck, and current DRP Point Leader Mitch Lyden coming home third with Cook and Brandon Birdsill rounding out the top five. In earlier action Trute set fast time for the evening and Mitch Lyden won the SS&E Concrete Sportsman Dash, and Chris Weber won the heat race. A Big Thank You to all the drivers, teams and fans who braved the heat to come out and see a great night of racing at your very own Dells Raceway Park. Sportsman are back in action again this week for the Lyle Nabbefeldt Memorial June 18, 2016.
