Bernhagen Wins Shangri-La 40
       

Saturday, June 3, 2017


Wisc Dells, WI 6-3-17-Jesse Bernhagen of Markesan WI picked up his first feature win of the season at Dells Raceway Park Saturday night in the Shangri-La Campgrounds 40 over defending track champion Nick Nolden. Chad Miller and Chris Storey brought the field to green with Miller grabbing the early lead. Miller would continue to lead until Jesse Bernhagen would take the point with 23 to go. At the half way point the field was red flagged for a scary crash that saw Allen Borntreger flip his mount down the front straightaway and end up on his roof down in turn one. Borntreger would walk away from the accident unharmed and after Blystone Towing would right his mount the field was ready for a 20 lap double file shoot out. Bernhagen would again grab the lead with Nolden now filling his mirrors. Bernhagen would not falter down the stretch as he held off constant pressure from Nolden who finshed second with Deforest driver Kurt Clapper coming home in third Kelsey Schultz of Mauston finish in the fourth spot while early leader Chad Miller finished in the fifth spot. In earlier action it was Bernhagen setting fast time in qualifications while Kelsey Schultz picked up the win in the fast dash, and Michael Haggar of Hanover MN won the heat race. Late Models will be back in action next Saturday night June 10th for Gawronski Sign & Graphic night along with the Sportsman, Outlaws and Bandits with special guest the Upper Midwest Vintage Series. TT 5:30 and first race 7pm.
