Wagamon Wages War on Granite City Mod Field

July 22, 2019

The Granite City Speedway hosted it’s annual Veterans Appreciation Night on Sunday, July 21st and saw 56 competitors enter action in the nightly five WISSOTA-sanctioned divisions.

The WISSOTA Hornet main event was the most highly contested feature of the night and saw eventual winner Corey Mehrwerth, who started fourth on the field, race in a tight pack along with eventual runner up Nate Servaty, Carter Rieland and current national point leader Jake Smith for the entire 15-lap distance. Mehrwerth, who raced from 4th to the victory in his heat race was able to hold off the swarming pack of Hornets, including Smith, who has been nearly unstoppable all season, for the hard earned and very entertaining feature win. Cody Krueth was fifth at the line.

Bob Holtquist put his #5 WISSOTA Mod Four into victory lane tonight after starting on the pole in the Mod Four main event and never looking back en route to the 15-lap victory. Holtquist beat fellow front row starter Tyler Larson to the first set of turns and held him off for the victory. Justin Pogones crossed the start/finish line in third with Jamie Flickinger and Dean Larson rounding out the top five.

Tommy Bawden and Brandon Mehrwerth lead the WISSOTA Midwest Modified feature field to the green in the 15-lap event, but it was 6th starting Matt Baker who made his way to the front quickly and put his #27 into victory lane for the second time on the weekend for his efforts. 12th starting Bud Martini did his best to try to overhaul Baker, but it was not enough as Matt held off the charging Martini for the victory. Martini ran second with Travis Schulte third. Mehrwerth hung on to fourth with a pair of Wisconsin racers Calvin Iverson and Shane Halopka battling for fifth at the finish.

Tommy Patton sat on the pole for the WISSOTA Super Stock main event, but as has been the case on many occasions over the season, Shane Sabraski was not to be denied the Super Stock feature win tonight. Sabraski started 8th and raced his way to the front with ease, slicing through traffic lap after lap until he put his #7a out front for good. Sabraski raced uncontested to a 6 second victory with Jim Gullikson coming home with runner up honors, ahead of Andy Miskowic, Don Eischens and Kevin Schmidt.

Clayton Wagamon started third and finished first in the WISSOTA Modified main event to cap off racing action. Wagamon raced by front row starters Taton Hansen and JT Johnson into the top spot and then was able to hold off fifth starting Denis Czech, 7th starting Dave Cain, 8th starting Shane Sabraski and Johnson, who held on to fifth when the 20-lap event concluded.
