Marshfield, WI, (August 21, 2021) – On what was a perfect day for auto racing at the wide half-mile of Marshfield Motor Speedway, kids rolled in and collected school supplies as it was the Women’s Concerned for Auto Racing sponsored “Back to School Night” at the races!

Wausau’s Mark Mackesy visited today, and Mark turned the fastest lap of 17 cars, in qualifying. Mark Eswein held his lead in the Chili Implement Dash 4 Cash, as he edged Dillon Mackesy for the win.

Heat winners, here tonight for the super late models were, AJ Kreager, Frank Nitzke, and Darren Jackson.

Once the Earth, Inc. Super Late Models took to the track for their 35-lap feature event, it was Michigan’s Jason Wells grabbing the early lead. Wells would hold the lead for the first 10 laps, with Wisconsin Rapids, WI driver Greg Matthews hot on his bumper. One lap later, it was point leader Darren Jackson getting by the front runners for the race lead. Jackson, whom of which is looking for his second track championship in three years, has had a sensational season thus far, with the help of crew chief Jordon Hamel and crew.

Darren Jackson would roll out to a 5-car length lead over Wells, by lap 13. Mark Eswein darted to the second position on lap 15. Eswein has notched numerous feature wins in his career at Marshfield, and was looking to add to that total tonight. Three laps later, Eswein made that pass on Jackson for the race lead. With Eswein and Jackson running one/two, Colorado driver Jonathan Knee moved his #8 Mike Butts prepared car to the third position by lap 19.

With the top three cars running status quo, Greg Matthews, who earlier got shuffled back in the field, charged his way back to the fourth position. Going back one week, it was noticeable that Matthews was getting things figured out in his beautiful #8 machine. Tonight was no different for Team Matthews, the #8 car started to close in on the Knee car for the third position, having another impressive run.

When starter Geno Eckes put his hand up indicating five laps remaining, the top four drivers remained 2-car lengths apart from each other. As the laps counted down, the only position yet decided in tonight’s feature appeared to be the fifth position, Darek Gress had it, Cody Blakeslee wanted it! Gress was able to fend off the challenge of Blakeslee, and would end up finishing fifth. Up front, it was Mark Eswein cruising to another feature win. With Jackson finishing a strong second place, it was Jonathan Knee and Greg Mathews, finishing third and fourth respectively.
