HUNTER LANDWEHR STAYS HOT WITH FEATURE WIN!  FINSTAD SCORES FEATURE WIN!

Marshfield, WI, – With fans taking advantage of Buck Night, and five great divisions of racing, Mother Nature provided the rest, clear skies and temperatures in the low 80’s! It was a great day of family fun at the half-mile paved oval.

For the Super Late Models, it was Nekoosa, WI driver Darren Jackson capturing fast time honors. Heat winners tonight was Jerad deBoer and Mark Eswein. Eswein also grabbed the win in the Chili Implement Dash 4 Cash!

Once the field took the green flag from starter Geno Eckes, for their 35-lap feature event, it was Berlin, WI Frank Nitzke pulling out to the early lead. Jerad deBoer made the pass on Jason Wells for the runner up position. As Nitzke pulled out to a 5-car length lead, Mark Eswein moved his familiar #71 machine into the third position by lap 7. Two laps later, Eswein worked his way to the inside of deBoer for the second spot. Travis Volm, whom of which pilots the beautiful #76 car, move into the third position on lap 10, from his fifth row starting position. Volm is no stranger to Marshfield Motor Speedway, as he is a past champion of the Yellow River Racing Series. With Mark Eswein cutting into the lead that Nitzke built, fast timer Darren Jackson worked his way through the pack, and into the third position. On lap 17, Eswein worked his way up to the door of Frank Nitzke. Eswein and Nitzke ran door to door for the race lead for five laps. As the drivers exited turn two, Nitzke’s car broke loose, dropping the veteran driver to the fourth position. Nitzke did an amazing job keeping control of his #18 machine. With Eswein holding the new lead, Jackson moved his car into the second spot. For the point leader Jackson, his night would come to a sudden end as his car stalled down the back stretch, bringing out the caution. On the cone restart, it was Mark Eswein and Travis Volm leading the field to the restart. Volm jumped out ahead of Eswein as the drivers worked their way thru turn three. As the drivers exited turn four, Eswein and Volm made slight contact, sending Volm’s car spinning. All drivers avoided contact with the spinning Volm car, and were able to continue. On the restart, it was Volm holding the lead with Dillon Mackesy closing in. Mackesy, two weeks earlier, captured his first career feature win at Marshfield. For the first two-thirds of tonight’s feature, Mackesy seemed to hang out in the middle of the pack. However, with some rare youthful patience, the young grandson of former star/legend driver Bob Mackesy, worked his way to the front of the field. Making the pass of Volm, Mackesy now built a comfortable lead for himself, or so he thought. Don’t look now, but that car that was earlier involved with an incident with Travis Volm, the #71 of Mark Eswein, worked his way back to the second spot. With just a few laps remaining, Eswein would close on the Mackesy car entering the corners, but Mackesy would out motor Eswein down the shoots. Once the drivers took the white flag, Eswein did take a look to the inside of Mackesy, but just ran out of laps. Many fans stood and cheered as the green #93 crossed the finish line, earning the checkered flag. With Mark Eswein earning a solid second place finish, it was Travis Volm finishing third. AJ Kreager, who earlier in the day flew home from practice at the Milwaukee Mile, would take the fourth position, with Cody Blakeslee rounding out the top five.

X-Treme 4’s visited the speedway tonight, and it was the #43 of Chad Ferge notching fast time honors. Ferge turned a lap time of 22.054 seconds. Ferge also collected the heat win tonight for the X-Treme 4’s.

Making his track debut, Kenny Meyer jumped out to the early lead, once the drivers took the green flag for their feature event. Meyer would lead the first four laps, but on lap five, it was Tim Finstad making the pass of Meyer for the race lead. Finstad, who pocketed the feature win a few weeks ago, was looking to put his #33 machine back into the McDonald’s Drive Thru Victory Lane. Surprisingly, Kenny Meyer, once he was passed by Finstad, hung with the veteran driver. The rookie driver battled back on several occasions, but tonight, it was all Tim Finstad, as he grabbed his second feature win of the season. With Kenny Meyer finishing a solid second place, it was point leader Chad Ferge finishing third. Don Tiemen and Payton Olson rounded out the top five.

Branden Sischo raced his way to the top spot in the Bandit feature event. Sischo would enjoy the lead for five laps, that was when Hunter Landwehr made the pass for the race lead. Landwehr, whom of which grabbed his first career feature win earlier in the year at the speedway, was looking to repeat that task. Eric Breitenfeldt made the pass of Sischo for the second spot, and now set his sites on a very fast Landwehr machine. Tonight, however, it was Hunter Landwehr collecting his second feature win.
