    Chad Zobrist, Brian Bielong, Bobby Dauderman, Jeremy Thoele, Austin Isaak & Kenny Elliott take wins at Highland Speedway!

    HIGHLAND IL (June 9, 2012 Racers and fans returned to the Highland Speedway after a week off from racing. It was Hamel CO OP night with give a ways from the Huddle House.

    The premier class of the Highland Speedway is the Becker Jewelers Super Late Models and they never fail to excite the crowds with unpredictability and tremendous racing action.

    The feature event lined up with pole sitter Rick “The Salty Dog” Salter in the 1S choosing the outside starting spot, this positioned the dash runner up, “Fast” Frankie Martin from DuQuoin Il on the inside of the front row. The remainder of the lineup was in row two, the 38J of Jake Little and Rick Standridge in the 12. The row three line up was the 11K of Shannon Kuhn and the T4 of Adam Tischhauser. In row four sat the 78 of Chad Zobrist and the 38L of Ryan Little.

    The Salty Dog, choose the high side for the start based on his performance in the dash. Salter didn’t anticipate the craftiness of Highland veteran Martin. At the stripe after the first lap it was a dead heat as the pair of racers was door handle to door handle. Unfortunately for Salter on lap two he drove the 1S a bit too hard into turn four and put the right side wheels up on the top of the wall and just about went for a ride, the incident slowed his forward momentum and the chances for the Salty Dog from Albers IL for a feature victory were gone. The 25 of Martin was the leader and on the very next lap the 12 of Standridge did the exact same thing Salter did on the previous lap, but this time he came to a rest and brought out the first yellow.

    On the restart it was Martin, Kuhn, J. Little, the 78 of Zobrist who started 7th on the field and Salter. On lap five Martin was working the high side of the Speedway, by this time Zobrist had moved to the second spot and was working the bottom. On lap 7 Zobrist had acquired the lead. A caution on lap 8 for debris slowed the field. Zobrist had the point followed by Martin, Kuhn, the 27S of Mike Schulte and J Little. After the restart Zobrist had the 78 working in the black and distanced himself from the field. While there were several more cautions, the past Becker Jewelers Late Model Champion and current points leader was never challenged and took the 78 into the Casey’s General Stores Victory Lane for the third time this season. Martin finished were he started in the second spot, Schulte, Kuhn and Standridge who made it all the back for the tail of the field from the lap three incident finished in the fifth spot were the top five.

    Brian Bielong completely dominated the Steve Schmitt Modifieds, leading the entire 20 caution free lap feature from the drop of the green to the double checker flags. Tyler Diebert, Chad Sellers, Justin Ketrow and Jim Werner Jr were the top five.

    The evening started off with the feature that wasn’t raced on May 31, Bobby Martintoni, The Italian Stallion captured the win with Billy Knebel Jr, Rick Salter, Jordan Bauer and Ray Emling completing the top five.

    In the night cap the man they call the Undertaker, Bobby Dauderman led all 20 laps, Rick Salter, Mark Oller, Ray Emling and Jordan Bauer were the top five.
