WIS. DELLS, WI - The CWRA Stars to Legends Tour as presented by Smiley's Old Time Diner, made an appearance at Dells Raceway Park, Wis. Dells, WI., here Saturday night for the Marlin Walbeck Classic, and it was Portage, Wisconsin driver Mike Lichtfeld, and rain, the victors of the two scheduled 30 lap Features. For Lichtfeld, it was his first 2019 Tour win, while a rain shower ended hopes for contesting the 2nd Main event on the night.
Dakota Blakeslee, Rudolph, WI., and Lichtfeld made up the front row for the 30 lap Feature, with Lichtfeld moving into an early lead. A fast car and a great starting position, had Lichtfeld building a 10 car length lead by the 5th lap. Numerous battles behind Lichtfeld were taking place, with Jesse Bernhagen, Stevens Point, WI., making the most moves through the field from his 11th starting position in the 24 car field. Putch Bentley, Iron River, MI., moved into the 2nd position on lap 10 but couldn't make any headway in catching the fleet Lichtfeld. The top Rookie candidate for 2019, Harley Jankowski, Sparta, WI., who started the race in 6th spot, moved up to 3rd position by the halfway point. Lichtfeld continued to lead, stretching the margin to a 1/4 lap over Bentley with 5 laps remaining. He would stay there the rest of the way taking the win over, Bentley in his best ever Tour finish, Jankowski, Jeff Weinfurter, Wis. Rapids, WI., Bernhagen and Blakeslee.

With rain moving in just as the field lined up on the race track for the second 30 lapper, the cars were forced back to the pit area but still hoping to get the race in. The rain let up, but one attempt at track drying, with more rain moving in put an end to the night's racing.
The CWRA Tour will be making it's next appearance at the Marshfield Motor Speedway, Marshfield, WI., Saturday night, August 17th. All the top point getters are entered for that race with Jeff Weinfurter topping the list.
