Martini and Kerzman score open wheel wins at I-94*

By Ray Beste

Sauk Centre, Mn (July 10th, 2009) - Avon, Mn driver Eric Martini charged
forward during the division's 20-lap feature scoring the win in WISSOTA
Modified action. Jeremy Kerzman outlasted Justin Mackedanz to tally the win
in the WISSOTA Midwest Modified finale while Tim Johnson increased his
speedway winning streak to six in the WISSOTA Streets. Jon Lewerer picked up
his first win of the season in Legend car action while Ben Godbee dominated
the Four-Cylinder division's 15-lap event. Eager racefans were treated to
some tremendous Amsoil Dirt Track Series action Friday night at I-94
Speedway.

The action was hot and heavy early on in the WISSOTA Street Stock division.
Five time winner Tim Johnson moved quickly to the point from his eighth
starting spot while Justin Vogel moved into second. The two front runners
distanced themselves from the rest of the field while Don Barber moved by
Josh Fredeen for the third spot. Back in traffic, Pillage, Mn hotshoe Jack
Peterson began a spirited march toward the front. Peterson found himself in
the fourth spot behind Barber with five laps still up on the board. Like
Peterson, David Goulet found the speedway to his liking. Goulet disposed of
10 of his competitors during the duration of the event finishing in fifth.
Vogel hounded out Johnson during the remaining five laps but was unable to
make the pass he needed. Out front it was Johnson scoring his sixth feature
win of the season. Vogel had an outstanding run coming home second ahead of
Peterson who nipped Barber at the line for third. Goulet rounded out the top
five running order for the WISSOTA Street Stocks.

The WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds were next on the night's agenda with Justin
Mackedanz taking the early lead. A wave of cautions halted action before the
Midwest Modifieds established a rhythm near the midway point of the race.
Kerzman pressured the backside of Mackedanz for many laps before he seen his
first opportunity to take the lead on lap sixteen. Mackedanz and Kerzman
entered turn one with Kerzman up on the shelf and Mackendanz running the
middle groove. Kerzman was able to find the bite he needed as he blasted by
Mackedanz down the backstretch. The best battle on the speedway behind
Kerzman and Mackedanz was between Brett Hoium and Shane Sabraski. The two
ran side by side before Hoium eventually held the position in the end. Back
in traffic WISSOTA Midwest Modified veteran Bob Smith moved up fourteen
positions during the 20-lap affair finishing a great run in the fifth
position. On the final trip around Kerzman made no mistakes as he picked up
his first I-94 Speedway win of the season. Mackedanz scored his best run to
date in the second position followed by Hoium, Sabraski and Smith. The
division boasted 26 cars which were divided up into four heat races. Heat
race victories were collected by Mackedanz, Sabraski, Kerzman and Nate
Barber. Bob Smith was victorious in the division's lone B-main.

The Legend car feature proved to be a dandy with Jon Lewerer collecting his
first speedway victory of the season. Tenth starter Rob Thurston flexed a
little muscle during the duration of the event moving up to second at the
line behind Lewerer. Patrick Brejcha had another steady run coming home
third ahead of speedway point leader Jake Varnum of Morris. Webster, Mn
driver Tim Brockhouse rounded out the top five running order for the Legend
car division. Chad Sogge and Dirk Henry each scored qualifying wins for the
legend car division, which featured a very nice field of 13 competitors.

The WISSOTA Modified A-main proved to be a dandy with Fergus Falls, Mn
veteran Cullen Brown taking the early lead. Brown and Kent Wilms battled
early on for the lead when Ryan Canon joined the fray. Canon pedaled his #47
machine right next to the wall moving into the third spot early on. Canon
backed his car into the cushion on lap six and overtook Wilms for the lead.
Back in traffic, Martini began to move forward. Martini moved to the outside
of Mark Esala moving into fifth before the yellow waved on lap eight. This
stacked up the cars two by two behind Brown. When the green dropped over the
field once again, Martini quickly moved into fourth. Martini used the bottom
side of the speedway to move by Wilms for third while Canon was glued to the
backside of Brown out front. Martini took a peak to the inside of Canon for
the second spot with the cross flags showing. Canon moved to the bottom in
an attempt to overtake Brown which opened the door for Martini. Martini
climbed the ladder to the top shelf and overtook Canon for the second spot.
Martini wasted little time blasting by Brown for the lead off of turn two.
The final caution of the event waved on lap sixteen which set up a four lap
dash to the finish. Head flagman Buzz Cripe dropped the green once again
with Sabraski and Canon now battling for the second spot. Canon worked the
outside with Sabraski on the bottom. On the final trip around Martini made
no mistakes and scored the win from his seventh starting position. The
battle for second, however, was not yet finished. As they filed off of turn
four, Canon and Sabraski crossed the finish line in a virtual tie. Canon
held off Sabraski for the second spot while Danny Bayer and Brown rounded
out the top five. Canon and Martini each picked up qualifying wins for the
WISSOTA Modifieds.

The final event of the evening belonged to the four-cylinder division. Ben
Godbee led flag to flag scoring the win from his outside row one starting
spot. KRA Speedway regular Shawn Fernkes had a nice run finishing second
ahead of Adam Olson, Cody Buccheit and Josh Dragt. Godbee's victory in heat
race action made it a clean sweep in the process for the young Danube, Mn
driver.
