Saturday, August 12, 2017


Wisc Dells WI 8-12-17 -Nick Nolden from Sun Prairie WI, over took race leader Chad Miller with 15 laps to go Saturday night at Dells Raceway Park for his fifth late model feature win of the year in the Historic Auto Attractions 50. Pole sitter Kelsey Schultz of Mauston took the lead from the start and held the point for the first ten circuits until Miller worked his way thru traffic and passed Schultz for the top spot. Miller looked strong building a five car length lead until caution would restart the field and by the half way point of the race Miller had current DRP point leader and defending track champion Nolden and WIR Blue race champion Jesse Bernhagen filling his mirrors. Miller, Nolden and Bernhagen would do battle until the end with Nolden taking the lead for good with 15 laps to go leaving Miller to battle Bernhagen for second and at the line Bernhagen would nip Miller by a nose for second with Miller finishing third with last weeks winner Jake Zellmer grabbing fourth and Larry Schotten of Mauston rounding out the top five. Earlier in the evening Nolden was fastest in qualifying with a 14.003 and Kyle Kirberger from Ramsey MN would capture the Late Model fast dash, with Burlington's Chris Storey winning the heat race.
