BILDERBACK, WARE, BELDOWSKI & LOUNSBURY CLAIM WINS ON ‘SALUTE TO SERVICE NIGHT”

By: Jeep Newton

STANLEY STEEMER NASCAR LATE MODELS

Two-time Rockford Speedway track champion Michael Bilderback conquered the competition during the 30 lap Late Model main event on ‘Salute to Service’ Night. The win was Bilderback’s second win in three tries this season.

After two near misses in the race’s first five laps, which was plagued by three caution flags, the South Beloit native swept past teenager Max Kahler for the lead on the sixth circuit and held off the advances of his competition for the remainder of the race.

Kahler collected his third podium finish in five races, ending the 30 laps in second position. Matt Berger, who claimed fast qualifier honors earlier in the night, fought back to a third place finish after getting involved in an early-race incident. Jake Gille, driving his dad Tom’s number 40 car, came home in fourth, while point leader Jon Reynolds Jr rounded out the top five.

BARGAIN HUNTER SPORTSMAN

While Cody Houseweart passed under the checkered flag first in his 25 lap feature, the car he was driving was later disqualified in post-race technical inspection, awarding the win to Howie Ware.

Ware, who started in the seventh position, also was the second quickest qualifier earlier in the evening. The victory was Ware’s first of 2018.

Johnny Robinson II ended up second in the final run down, with Chad Smith credited as third. Garrick Fry was fourth while Richie Schinderling rounded out the top five.

MILLER LITE AMERICAN SHORT TRACKERS

A torrid four-car battle for the lead lasted for the first 17 laps of a caution-free 25 lap Short Tracker main event. With front row starters Shannon Stotlz and Destiny Genore officially trading the lead six times and unofficially trading the lead several more times, third and fourth place runners Aaron Rude and Franc Beldowski were forced to ‘hurry up and wait’ as Stotlz and Genore tried to separate themselves at the head of the field.

But on lap 18, Stotlz’s car suddenly slowed on the backstretch, slowing down Rude and opening the door for Beldowski. Beldowski skipped past Genore on lap 19 and raced to his third win of the season. The rookie contender Genore finished a solid second place, while Todd Snow collected a second straight top five with a third place result. Melody Welding finished fourth while Rude soldiered on to fifth.

KICKSTART ROADRUNNERS

Chad Lounsbury left little doubt on the path to a second win of the year in the Roadrunner class. Lounsbury ripped to the lead on lap number five and never looked back in a caution-free 20 lap main event.

Austin Fowler charged from an eighth place starting position to a runner up finish. Kevin Memoli was third, followed by point leader Nick Schneider in fourth and Brent Garnhardt in fifth.

PAPINI, RUDE, ROBINSON & BROCKMANN VICTORIOUS ON KIDS NIGHT

By: Kip Ripley

Great weather and an enthusiastic crowd witnessed another exciting Saturday night of racing at Rockford Speedway as part of Northwest Bank Kids Night.

When the dust cleared, Alex Papini (Late Models) and Aaron Rude (American Short Trackers) found victory lane once again while Robby Robinson (Roadrunners) and Bart Brockmann (Bandits) nabbed their first feature wins of 2018.

In the 30 lap Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Model feature, Matt Lundberg was the car who was the most impressive in the race and crossed the finish line first, taking the lead on lap 14 and holding off the late race advances of Papini to apparently take the win. However, during post-race technical inspection, Lundberg’s car was deemed to have oversize wheels and was disqualified from the race. The ruling moved Papini to the top of the chart, as the Rockford resident notched a third feature win in four tries during the 2018 season, Michael Bilderback came from 10th starting spot to claim second, while ‘Driver X’ Jon Reynolds Jr was credited with third. Through four nights of racing, Reynolds and Papini are tied atop the Late Model point standings.

Veteran racer Mike Lloyd persevered to a fourth place finish and was followed by Dennis Smith Jr who rounded out the top five.

Cambridge Wisconsin’s Aaron Rude made a slick move to the front of the field on the ninth lap of the Miller Lite American Short Tracker feature, holding the lead for the rest of the 25 lap main event while holding off a furious late-race charge from point leader Franc Beldowski. After Rude nabbed the lead, Beldowksi wrestled side-by-side with Shannon Stoltz over the next six laps before settling into second spot and beginning his pursuit of Rude for the lead. Over the course of the next 8 laps, Beldowski chased down Rude and made two attempts at the lead before falling short at the checkered flag.

Rude claimed his second win of the season, while Beldowski settled for second, coming up just one position short of a ‘clean sweep’ after earning fast time, a trophy dash win and a heat race win. Stotlz finished third, while David Russell earned fourth.

Robby Robinson cruised to the lead on the sixth lap of the 20 lap Kickstart Roadrunner feature and held on for his first win of 2018 while outrunning Roadrunner point leader Nick Schneider to do so. Kevin Memoli was credited with third place, followed by Brent Garnhardt and Terry Gerber.

The 20 lap T.E,D. Transit Bandit feature showcased a three-car battle for the lead in a non-stop affair which ended with Rockford’s Bart Brockmann in victory lane after squeaking past Kelsey Dobbs at the line to claim the victory. Brockmann earned his first career Rockford Speedway win by half a car-length over Dobbs after the two drivers traded the lead multiple times throughout the race. Benji Rucker came home third, with Haley Roberts fourth and Ashley Matts fifth.
