Mitch Lyden in a Thriller at DRP
       

Saturday, August 27, 2016


SynMax Sportsman point leader Mitch Lyden from Warrons, WI captured his first feature event of the 2016 season Saturday night at Dells Raceway Park in a thrilling crowd pleasing pass on the last lap of former track champion Dave Trute. Steve Bachman visiting from the Lacrosse Speedway brought the field to green and lead the early stages of the event. Then it was Montello driver Doug Paul turn to grab the point from Bachman to lead the middle part of the event. Paul was looking good out front with a trio of former track champions now filling his mirror in the name of Dave Trute, Scott Luck and Mitch Lyden. Inside ten to go now Trute would challenge and take the lead followed by Lyden, Paul and Luck. In the final laps it was DRP Point leader Mitch Lyden who would slip under Trute on the white flag lap and seal the deal for his first main event victory of the 2016 season, Trute held on for second, followed by Paul, Luck and Mahlon Borntreger would round out the top five. In earlier Action it was Trute setting fast time with Paul winning the SS&E Concrete Sportsman dash and Mark Kalata picking up his first win in the SynMax Sportsman heat race.
