Jacob Goede Wins at Madison Picking Up the 30 Lap NASCAR Late Model Feature

By John Wells | Madison International Speedway

Jacob Goede made the five hour trip from Carver,  Minnesota, a little more rewarding by picking up the 30 lap feature for the NASCAR Late Models.

The field was brought to the field by Will Rece and Brady Liddle with Liddle taking the early lead.  But on the move was Jacob Goede who was quickly up to second ahead of Rece.  On lap 4 Bobby Wilberg was able to take the third spot from Rece.

On lap 7 Goede worked to the inside of Liddle coming down the front shoot and took the lead coming out of turn one.  After starting 9th, Zack Riddle joined the top five one lap later.  Goede’s lead opened up to seven car lengths on lap 12 with Riddle and Wilberg fighting it out for second.  On lap 15 Wilberg was able to get the second spot from Liddle with Riddle now applying heavy pressure on Liddle for third. 

With the action hot and heavy behind him, Goede was able to build a solid lead ahead of Wilberg and Riddle, the latter who had captured the third spot from Liddle on lap 18.  Unfortunately, Liddle’s night would end one lap later when he took his car to the pits.

It seemed like the only thing that would slow down the speedy Goede would be a caution flag. Wilberg and Riddle desperately tried to reel him in with the laps quickly counting down,  but the race stayed green the entire way allowing Goede to wheel his way to victory lane.  Wilberg was able to hold off Riddle for second while Shaun Scheel and Stephen Scheel rounded out the top five.

“A couple of weeks ago we weren’t even able to run so we changed everything.  It’s a great way to get things going especially when we make the five hour trip here,” said Goede.

Zack Riddle set fast time with a lap of 18.730 (96.103 mph) and also picked up the RA Heating and Air Conditioning Dash.  Wins in the heat races went to Kyle Smith and Goede.
