Paul Nienhiser, Brandon Sheppard, Dave Wietholder and Austin Bercerra all took feature event wins at Quincy Raceways on Sunday September 1 during Budweiser/Rinella Distributing Night at the Races.
Paul Nienhiser had a dominating night in the MOWA Outlaw 410 Sprint Series as he claimed the win in the dash by half a lap setting up a pole position start in the A-Main. Nienhiser took off at the drop of the green flag in the feature event and looked like he would pull away from the field but Joey Moughan who started outside row one kept inching closer to the leader as they worked lapped traffic. Moughan took advantage of some lapped traffic on lap eighteen to blast into the lead but Nienhiser would have no part of it as he powered back past Moughan to regain the lead. Moughan kept working to stay with Nienhiser but had to settle for the second spot at the checkered flag. Following Nienhiser and Moughan to the stripe were A.J. Bruns, Jerrod Hull and Jim Moughan to round out the top 5. Jimmy Hurley and Joey Moughan were the heat race winners.
Brandon Sheppard inched his way closer to his first DIRTCar UMP Late Model National Championship as he took the feature event win. Sheppard outdistanced Bobby Pierce for the win with Mark Burgtorf in third, Denny Woodworth in fourth and Ricky Frankel in fifth. Burgtorf took the heat race win with Pierce claiming the Fast Six Dash win.
Dave Wietholder made a clean sweep in the Miller Lite UMP Modified division as he started the night off with setting fast time in Qualifying and holding off Steven DeLonjay in the Fast Six Dash to earn the pole starting spot in the twenty five lap main event. Wietholder held off DeLonjay in the early going of the feature event and then kept Rusty Griffaw at bay for the rest of the event to take his second feature win of the year at Quincy. DeLonjay settled for third followed by Chris Spaulding in fourth and Keith Pratt in fifth. Pratt scored the heat race win.
Austin Bercerra laid claim to his sixth feature win of the season in the IMCA Sport Compact division. Bercerra took the lead away from Kimberly Abbott on the third lap and never looked back to take the win. Abbott settled for second followed by Pat Dunker in third, Sieth Woodruff in fourth and Brandon Lambert in fifth. Lambert and Dunker were the heat race winners.
