Dha McLeod Morden, MB (June 25) Both WISSOTA Modified and WISSOTA Midwest Modified had good car counts as Ward Imrie of Winnipeg in Modified and Cody Wall of Plum Coulee in Midwest Modified were winners.
In Modified Shawn Teunis of West St. Paul got a good start and held a decent lead but Imrie, Scott Greer of Winnipeg and Jerome Guyot of Fannystelle were in hot pursuit. Eventually all three got by but Teunis held on for a respectable fourth place finish.
Danny Staff of East St. Paul, Justin Bronk of West. St. Paul and Dustin Wahl of Greenbush, MN followed. Wahl and a number of other Modified and Midwest Modified drivers were at ALH after the race meet at Greenbush Race Park was washed out the night before. Greer won the first heat while Imrie topped the other.
In Midwest Modified Wall took advantage of a miscue by Rick Fehr of Winkler to get the emotional win. That win broke a string of five wins by Austin Hunter of Winnipeg.
Fehr had a good lead on the field from the start but he slid too high through corner two while negotiating lapped traffic about midway through the race. That put him at the back of the pack and he was only able to make it back to seventh place.
Hunter finished fourth behind Patrick Sobolik of Hallock, MN and Cole Haugland of Brocket, ND. There was quite a bit of bumping and banging coming off corner four on the last lap of the race. Eric Haugland of Lakota, ND was fifth at the end. Brandon Wieler of Plum Coulee suffered damage in that last lap skirmish and went to the infield as both the yellow and checker flag waved.
Brenden Luschinsky of Headingley won the first heat ahead of Fehr and Murray Kozie of Headingley. Bryan Kakela of Lakota, ND won the second heat with Wall second and Sobolik third. Eric Haugland won heat three with Cole Haugland second and Hunter third.
Hunter still holds first in Midwest Modified points with Wall second and Fehr third. Gary Unrau of Roland is fourth, Ted Doell of Carman fifth and Derek Unrau of Roland sixth.
