Mark Merfeld Scores Third Late Model Win, Burmeister Takes First Ever Win In Mods At Dubuque Speedway

 

 

The NASCAR Weekly Racing Series presented by Dodge ran a very swift racing program on Hoosier Tire night at the Speedway on Sunday, August 25th. The final checkered flag of the night waved at 8:50 p.m.

 

The Iowa Illinois Taylor Insulation NASCAR Late Model feature win went to Mark Merfeld. Mark and Kim Merfeld were celebrating their 15th anniversary on Sunday night making the win extra special. Merfeld is usually a high line racer but he found the center groove to his liking Sunday night, Merfeld had to drive a perfect race as he was pressured the entire distance by Steve Johnson. Merfeld scored the win by a couple of car lengths at the checkered ahead of Johnson with a strong finishing Ace Ihm taking third.

 

Korey Burmeister of Glen Haven, Wisconsin added his name to the winners list on Sunday night scoring the 20 lap feature win in a very tough Modified division. Burmeister emerged from a pack of cars late in the race to take the lead. Burmeister was challenged late in the race by Scott Nesteby, who has been very hot as of late. Burmeister led only a handful of laps but was able to out duel the veteran Nesteby for the win. Jason Schueller ran third ahead of Sean Rupp.

 

John Walker took the 15 lap Pro Stock win; it was the “Texas Ranger’s” first win of 2002 at the Dubuque Speedway. Walker had won earlier in the season at the Farley Speedway. Walker drove a very smooth race using the high side to out race low runner Ty Kleiner. Jeff Tharp took third at the finish line.

 

B.J. Schmidt scored his second win of the season in the NASCAR Hobby Stock division on Sunday night taking the ten lap feature win ahead of Big Ed McIntyre. B.J. led the flag to flag race the entire distance. Duane Ahmann took third in the main event.

 

Brian Kelly has raced three times in the Farley Flyer division and Sunday nights feature win made his second in three tries. Kelly drove his Cavalier to the win ahead of Steve Stackis and Jason Roth.

 

Sunday, September 1st will be the NASCAR Season Championship races at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds. The program will be headlined by a 35 lap NASCAR Late Model feature. The season ending championship races will bring the curtain down on the 2002 season. Race time will be 6:30 p.m.
