by John Wells

It’s the second round of the Ho Chunk Gaming Super Late Model Triple Crown Challenge tonight at Madison International Speedway.  Racing action will also include the Dave’s White Rock Sportsman and Pellitteri Waste Systems Bandits.

The Super Late Model Triple Crown Challenge race will be 100 laps and pays $4000 to the winner ($2000 to the runner-up) and $450 to start.

Dave Feiler topped a field of eighteen cars and won the first round of the “Challenge” on May 30th.  Feiler took the lead on lap 20 and held off hard chargers Casey Johnson and Chris Wimmer to take home the checkered flag.   Feiler also turned the fastest lap of the season at MIS in qualifying with a trip of 17.288 (104.118 mph).

Feiler will be attempting to go two for two tonight, but keep your eye on Chris Wimmer who started deep in the field and worked his way up to a top three finish.  The Wausau driver is also the track record holder.
