Holtquist Hustles to Mod Four Victory

August 5, 2019

The Granite City Speedway hosted it’s annual backpack give away night on Sunday, August 4th with a full slate of WISSOTA racing action on tap in the five regular weekly divisions.

Brother and sister Brandon and Ashley Mehrwerth shared the front row for the WISSOTA Midwest Modified feature to kick off the five main events on the night. Ashley got the jump from the outside of the front row and lead the first thirteen laps of the 15-lap event with Travis Schulte hot on her heels. Mehrwerth and Schulte battled nose to tail for the entire event with Travis able to steal the lead with just a pair of laps to go and lead the final two circuits to pick up the win. Ashley Mehrwerth crossed the line second with her brother Brandon third. Bud Martini and Matt Baker rounded out the top five.

Corey Mehrwerth came out on top of a thriller of a WISSOTA Hornet feature event after starting 7th on the field. Zachery Schreder lead the first several laps from the pole, with Justin Schelitzche hot on his heels. Mehrwerth moved to the middle grove on the speedway and began to pressure the leaders while gaining ground lap after laps. Corey was able to use the higher line to his advantage and swoop by both Schelitzche and Schreder into the top spot, which he held to the checkered flag for the win. Schelitzche ran second with Grayson Pratt third, Daniel Harstad fourth and Schreder hung on for a top five finish.

Seventh-starting Dave Mass roared through the field to race to the WISSOTA Super Stock victory in fine fashion over 8th starting Kevin Burdick. The duo, who both started in the fourth row, charged through the pack together with Mass getting out front first. A pair of late race restarts gave second running Dexton Koch and Burdick two shots at the leader, but Mass able to withstand the pressure and hold off for the win. Burdick finished second with Koch third. Josh Zimpel ran fourth and Kevin Schmidt capped off the top five.

Dean Larson and Dustin Holtquist sat on row one for the WISSOTA Mod Four main event and battled out front during the early stages of the main event before Holtquist was able to pull out to a several car length lead. Jamie Flickinger, Keith Thell, Justin Pogones and Bob Holtquist were in a great four car battle for third while the top two began to stretch the lead. A late race caution bunched the field and allowed the pack to stay close at the end, but Holtquist was able to hold off Larson over the final two circuits to claim the win, Flickinger beat Thell to the line for third and Holtquist crossed in front of Pogones for fifth.

A pair of teenagers paced the WISSOTA Modified feature field to the green with Taton Hansen and Tyler Kaeter sitting on row one. Kaeter jumped to the lead with Danny Vang quickly moving in to pressure Hansen for the runner up spot early in the race. Kaeter survived a pair of cautions, which kept the pack on his heels, but he was able to blast back out front on each occasion to run away for the 20-lap feature win. Vang ran a close second at the end with Denis Czech, Clayton Wagamon and Dave Cain rounding out the top five after a great battle just behind the leaders for much of the race.
