Alex WIns 2012 Slinger Speeway Late Model Track Championship!

It was a family affair, as not only did Alex Prunty win the Late Model track championship Sunday, but his uncle Dennis also became the 2012 Slinger Speedway Super Late Model Champion!

Both Alex&Dennis celebrate being crownded 2012 Slinger Speedway Champions

Ryan DeStefano took top honors in the 35-lap late model feature while Alex Prunty captured his first late model track championship.

Alex and his family pose for championship photos!
Adam Peschek paced the opening laps over Justin Poenitsch and John DeAngelis while Alex Prunty and Ryan DeStefano raced close behind. A traffic jam throughout the field on lap three created a multi-car incident in turn four in which fast qualifier Dan Church sustained the most damage after striking the retaining wall head on. Peschek continued to lead over Poenitsch and Prunty on the restart with DeAngelis and DeStefano right behind them in fourth and fifth. DeStefano used an inside pass to take fourth from DeAngelis and then he and Prunty began to work their way forward, pressuring Poenitsch for second as Peschek continued to lead. Prunty and DeStefano both worked their way around Poenitsch on the inside and began to track Peschek for the lead, catching him by lap 25. Prunty again used the inside to pass Peschek for the lead and DeStefano followed before Peschek broke loose off turn two and spun to the infield on lap 30 to produce the caution flag. During the caution period, smoke began to slowly emit from Prunty’s car however, no fluid was leaking from it and he remained on the speedway for the final restart. As the green flag waved, DeStefano was on his marks and he charged into the lead as Prunty settled into second with the laps winding down. DeStefano raced to the win while Prunty’s second place finish earned him the track championship. Jerry Mueller finished third while Justin Poenitsch and Pat McIntee rounded out the top five as John DeAngelis and Al Stippich crashed hard in turn four while racing to the checkered flag for position.

By Dan Margetta
See full story at www.slingersuperspeedway.com

Eddie May made the trip from Illinois to the Slinger high banks and it paid off with a victory in the 35-lap late model feature over Ryan DeStefano and Alex Prunty.

Nick Wendt and Mark Kissinger paced the field to the green flag and they raced side by side for the lead in the opening laps before Wendt prevailed from the inside. Adam Peschek tried to take advantage of the opening to the inside of Kissinger but as they battled for the second spot, contact between the cars sent Kissinger spinning around off turn four to produce the caution flag. Both Peschek and Kissinger restarted the race from the rear of the field as Wendt led over Eddie May, Justin Poenitsch, and Al Stippich. Wendt and May raced door to door for the lead as racing resumed and several laps later, May’s persistence on the outside paid off as he cleared Wendt for the lead. Once out front, May began to stretch his advantage while Wendt was forced to defend second from both Poenitsch and Stippich who both raced directly behind Wendt. The caution flag appeared on lap 19 when Pat McIntee had problems and rode along the frontstretch wall with May leading over Wendt and Poenitsch. May once again showed the way as racing resumed over Wendt while Ryan DeStefano, Alex Prunty, and John DeAngelis all caught up to the leaders. Poenitsch spun off turn four while trying to turn back a challenge from DeStefano to produce the caution flag on lap 24 with May leading over DeStefano, Prunty, DeAngelis, and Dan Church. May was up to the task in the closing laps and he fended off all challengers to capture the victory over DeStefano and Prunty while DeAngelis and Church finished in fourth and fifth respectively.

 Dan Church was the winner of the late model fast dash while Nick Wendt won the first late model heat race over Adam Peschek and Eddie May. Brad Norgard took top honors in the second late model heat race over Pat McIntee and Tim Lange. Alex Prunty was the fastest qualifier with a lap of 12.370 seconds.

Alex Claims 5th Feature of the Season! By: Dan Margetta

Alex Prunty took the lead on lap 16 and drove to his fifth late model feature victory of the season in the 35-lap late main event, taking the checkered flag ahead of Ryan DeStefano and Casey Johnson

 Justin Poenitsch and Dan Church led the field to the green flag with Poenitsch taking the early lead from the inside lane as Church slotted in behind him. Poenitsch managed to maintain the top spot despite many Church’s many looks to the inside as behind them, Alex Prunty, Ryan DeStefano, John DeAngelis, and Casey Johnson all raced side by side for position. Andy Welter’s trip through the turn four grass produced the first caution flag on lap 14 with Poenitsch leading over Church, Prunty, and DeStefano. Poenitsch chose the inner groove for the restart and once again charged to the point as racing resumed with Church once again tracking directly behind him. The complexion of the race changed a lap later when Poenitsch looped around in front of the field off turn four following contact from Church as they battled for the top spot drawing the caution flag once again. Poenitsch and Church were relegated to the rear of the field for the restart leaving Prunty with the lead over DeAngelis, DeStefano, and Johnson. Prunty and DeAngelis battled fiercely for the lead as racing resumed with Prunty on the bottom lane and DeAngelis alongside in the high groove with the left side of DeAngelis’ car glued to Prunty’s right side in the middle of the corners. After several laps of side by side racing, Prunty prevailed from the inside and claimed sole possession of the lead as DeStefano, Johnson, and Mark Kissinger moved up to challenge within the top five. A final caution flag slowed the field on lap 21 for an incident between Jerry Mueller and Dan Church in turn one and as the field lined up to restart the race, Prunty again chose the inside, leaving DeAngelis the outside lane. As the green flag reappeared, Prunty maintained the lead while DeAngelis had difficulty finding grip on the outside as first DeStefano and then Johnson slipped by on the inside and into second and third respectively. Braison Bennett also worked his way around DeAngelis to move into fourth as the laps wound down. However, there was no catching Prunty in the final laps as he drove to his fifth feature win of the season, crossing the stripe ahead of DeStefano and Johnson while Bennett and DeAngelis rounded out the top five.


Dan Church was the winner of the late model fast dash while Braison Bennett won the late model heat race over Al Stippich and Mark Kissinger. Casey Johnson and Jerry Mueller were fourth and fifth respectively. Alex Prunty was the fastest qualifier in the late model division with a lap of 12.298 seconds.

2nd Place Finish Makes for a Good Points Night for APR

By: Dan Margetta ~ See full story at www.slingersuperspeedway.com

Casey Johnson took the lead on lap 21 and went on to capture the win in the 35-lap late model main event over Alex Prunty.

Jerry Mueller and Andy Welter led the field to the green flag with Mueller taking the early lead from the inside. The low groove was the place to be early on as Ryan DeStefano and Alex Prunty used it to advance to second and third as Welter dropped to fourth racing on the high side. The first caution flag appeared on lap three when Justin Poenitsch’s car looped around in turn one with Mueller leading over DeStefano and Prunty.

Mueller chose the inside for the restart and as racing resumed, maintained the lead as the caution quickly flew again when DeStefano tried to fill the gap on the inside entering turn three and was tagged by Prunty, sending DeStefano spinning around in turn four and relegating both DeStefano and Prunty to the rear of the field for the restart. Mueller again held the lead as the race went back to green with Welter holding down second just ahead of John DeAngelis and Casey Johnson who raced side by side for third. As Mueller began to ease away from the field, Welter, Johnson and DeAngelis fell in line single file as Braison Bennett joined the front runners while both DeStefano and Prunty began to slice their way forward as well. Johnson used the outside lane to take second from Welter as DeStefano and Prunty first picked off Bennett and went to work on DeAngelis in fourth.
Alex grew his points lead from 9 to 34 points over Ryan Destefano

As Johnson closed on Mueller for the lead, DeStefano and Prunty used the outside groove to pass DeAngelis to move into third and fourth respectively. Johnson tracked down Mueller out front and took to the outside in a bid for the lead, racing side by side for two laps before clearing Mueller for the lead on lap 21. While the leaders were battling, DeStefano and Prunty closed on Welter in third and with Welter racing on the low side, Prunty got the advantage as he used the outside to first pass DeStefano and then Welter to move into third while DeStefano also worked his way around Welter to take over fourth. With Johnson extending his lead, Prunty tracked down Mueller and following a spirited battle, used the outside to grab second, leaving Mueller and DeStefano to dispute third. Johnson would not be denied in the closing laps and he drove to the victory over Prunty while Mueller held off DeStefano for third as the two made contact at the strip, sending Mueller’s car hard into the turn one wall and damaging the front of DeStefano’s machine. Andy Welter finished in fifth.

Jerry Mueller won the late model fast dash while Braison Bennett scored the victory in the late model heat race over Justin Poenitsch and Andy Welter. Alex Prunty was the fastest qualifier with a lap of 12.409 seconds

With Back to Back Wins, Prunty Gets 4th Win of the Year!

On Track Ceremonies for Fast Time
By Dan Margetta
Slinger, Wis., July 15


Alex Prunty drove to victory lane for the second consecutive week in the 35-lap late model feature after taking advantage of the outside groove to lead the final 15 laps en route to the victory over Braison Bennett.

Dan Church and Braison Bennett shared the front row at the start of the event and they raced side by side for the lead in the opening laps as Jon DeAngelis, Ryan DeStefano, and Alex Prunty raced for position behind them. Church prevailed from the inside on lap four and took command of the race, leaving Bennett to battle with DeAngelis for second as Prunty and DeStefano looked on from fourth and fifth respectively. Bennett maintained the second position and began to close on Church for another bid at the lead as behind them, Prunty took to the outside to pass DeAngelis for third. Bennett tried to turn under Church a few times for the lead, but each time his car would get loose off the corners, allowing Prunty and DeAngelis to close while Al Stippich moved into the top five after working his way by DeStefano. Seeing the inside moves were not going to work, Bennett took to the outside lane and drove past Church to lead lap 16.


However, upon entering turn one, the back of Bennett’s car swung around and he nearly spun as he chased the car all the way through turn two. By the time Bennett recovered, both Prunty and DeAngelis charged by into second and third while Church continued to lead out front. Prunty tracked down Church for the lead and wasted no time in moving to the high lane, driving around Church for the lead on lap 20. Prunty began to streak away from the pack as Church held DeAngelis and Bennett at bay while Stippich and DeStefano closed in. With Prunty comfortably out front over Church, Bennett dipped to the inside and passed DeAngelis for third, setting up an intense battle over fourth when Stippich tried to close the gap on the inside and moved alongside DeAngelis. Stippich eventually took over the position with DeAngelis caught on the high side but it was DeStefano who took advantage of the hard racing between them, as he passed both Stippich and DeAngelis with a strong head of steam on the inside just before the caution waved on lap 33 as Church experienced engine problems and retired from the race in a cloud of smoke. Prunty and Bennett lined up side by side for the final two lap shootout and while Bennett held tough in the high lane for a lap, he couldn’t catch Prunty who drove to the victory. Bennett barely edged DeStefano for second while Stippich and DeAngelis completed the top five finishers.


Braison Bennett won the late model fast dash and Alex Prunty was the division’s fastest qualifier after circling the speedway in 12.519 seconds.

ALEX PRUNTY CLAIMS KING OF THE HIGHBANKS 60!


 King of the High Banks Late Model Winner Alex Prunty

By Dan Margetta

Slinger, Wis., July 8- Alex Prunty claimed top honors in the King of the Highbanks 60-lap late model feature while Mike Egan held off Dennis Prunty to score his first super late model feature victory of the season in the Netwurx 50 Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.

“This feels good, “Prunty exclaimed from victory lane after turning back a strong challenge from Zack Riddle before taking the win over Gregg Pawelski and John DeAngelis Jr., “Zack Riddle had one of the fastest cars out there and I gave him the outside…he didn’t want the outside but he wasn’t getting the inside from me.”

Al Stippich led the opening circuits of the 60-lap late model feature while the rest of the field raced in two-by-two formation behind him with Ryan DeStefano, Dan Church, Gregg Pawelski, and Braison Bennett rounding out the top five. Behind them, Alex Prunty, Zack Riddle, and John DeAngelis battled for sixth all within striking distance of the lead. With Stippich still out front, the inside lane advanced forward as Church and Bennett found themselves caught on the outside as DeStefano, Pawelski, Prunty, DeAngelis, and Riddle all passed by on the inside. DeStefano made a bid for the lead to the inside of Stippich on lap eight and took the top spot a lap later while Prunty challenged for Stippich for second, moving alongside just before the caution flag flew for Nick Wendt’s car which slowed after a minor tangle with Rich Hinerichsen on lap ten.

DeStefano chose the inside lane for the restart and as racing resumed, maintained the lead while Stippich held tough on the outside for two laps before Prunty and DeAngelis were able to race to the inside to take second and third respectively as Stippich lost ground on the high side. Bennett and Riddle also moved into fourth and fifth as Stippich looked for room on the inside with Pawelski caught on the outside as well directly behind him. Meanwhile, up front, Prunty made a quick bid for the lead on the inside of DeStefano and when that move was blocked, took to the top side to draw even with DeStefano for the top spot. Prunty and DeStefano raced door to door for the lead for three laps before Prunty was able to power ahead off turn four on lap 19 while DeAngelis and Riddle worked their way into third and fourth with Bennett holding off Stippich for fifth.

As Prunty continued to lead over DeStefano, Riddle was able to sneak the nose of this car under DeAngelis’ left rear fender and edge into third place just before the second caution flag waved on lap 26 for a tangle in turn four involving Adam Peschek and Rob Myers. Prunty was able to power to the lead over DeStefano and Riddle on the restart as Bennett and DeAngelis raced over fourth place with Pawelski and Andy Wendt close behind. Bennett and Pawelski both worked the low line to pass DeAngelis who finally found an opening down low to slot in sixth just ahead of Wendt with Prunty still leading over DeStefano. As Prunty began to ease away slightly, Riddle was able to turn to the inside of DeStefano to take second which opened the door for Bennett to move into third as DeStefano found himself in a side by side battle with Pawelski over fourth. Pawelski eventually took the fourth position a few laps later as the leaders settled down in single file order with Prunty enjoying a comfortable margin over Riddle, Bennett, Pawelski, and DeStefano. Stippich momentarily lost control of his car off turn four on lap 50 and slid toward the infield which drew the caution flag when he attempted to rejoin the race in turn one, erasing Prunty’s advantage over Riddle and Bennett. Prunty used the inside lane to pull ahead of Riddle for the lead on the restart but Riddle remained in Prunty’s tire tracks, making Prunty aware of his presence with a few taps on the left rear corner of Prunty’s bumper. Pawelski held the third spot as the caution waved once again on lap 51 when Bennett spun in turn four while racing over fourth with DeStefano, relegating both cars to the rear for the restart and moving Andy Wendt and DeAngelis into the top five. Riddle worked the outside and kept even with Prunty for a few laps after the race went back to green but Prunty proved to be too strong on the inside as he once again drove to the lead. Pawelski and DeAngelis took advantage of Riddle’s plight on the outside and both drove around in the low groove to move into second and third, leaving Riddle to battle with Wendt and Mike Lichtfield over fourth.

Prunty turned back all challenges in the final laps and he drove to the victory over Pawelski and DeAngelis while Lichtfield muscled his way past Riddle in the closing circuits to finish fourth.

Alex Wins his 2nd Feature of the Season! Recap by Dan Margetta 6/24/12

Alex Prunty took the lead on lap 23 and drove to the victory in the 40-lap late model main event.

Jerry Mueller charged out to the early lead as Pat McIntee and David McCardle raced for second with Jon DeAngelis and Alex Prunty side by side behind them. McCardle drifted slightly on the outside which allowed McIntee, DeAngelis, and Dan Church to get by as Ryan DeStefano pulled alongside McCardle. As DeStefano and McCardle entered turn three side by side, they closed quickly on Church’s car and when DeStefano tried to avoid hitting Church’s car, he moved up which sent McCardle’s car hard into the wall to draw a caution flag. DeStefano restarted from the rear of the field as Mueller and McIntee led the field back to the green flag. The outside lane was not the place to be for McIntee and both DeAngelis and Prunty worked their way by on the inside for second and third respectively while Mueller maintained the lead.

Al Stippich also tried to race to the inside of McIntee and as they raced for position, both cars spun in turn one and the caution flag waved for a second time. Mueller held the lead on the restart as Prunty worked the inside line to take second place away from DeAngelis, who kept the third position by fending off DeStefano and Justin Poenitsch. With Mueller leading, DeStefano used the inside line to pass DeAngelis for third, bringing Braison Bennett along with him into fourth, moving DeAngelis to fifth. DeStefano then went to work on Prunty for second place but as they closed in on Mueller for the lead, Prunty took to the outside lane and made a bid for the top spot. Prunty was able to take the lead from the outside and when contact between Mueller and DeStefano briefly held up the field, Prunty opened up a sizeable lead. Prunty went unchallenged the rest of the way and captured the victory while Mueller held off DeStefano for second as Braison Bennett and Al Stippich rounded out the top five.

Thunder Stock Winner Tyler SchleyJerry Mueller was the winner of the late model fast dash and Alex Prunty was the fastest qualifier at 12.468 seconds.

Race Recap at the Slinger Speedway 6-17-12 : By Dan Margetta

Ryan DeStefano scored the win in the 35-lap late model feature for the second week in a row, holding off Dan Church for the victory.

Justin Poenitsch and Dave McCardle led the field to the green and McCardle raced into the early lead from the outside as Poenitsch fell in line for second just ahead of Alex Prunty and DeStefano. Prunty worked his way around Poenitsch for second as McCardle continued to lead as Dan Church, Braison Bennett, and Pat McIntee also passed Poenitsch who began to fall back on the outside along with DeStefano who was also caught on the high side. Meanwhile back up front, Prunty caught McCardle and after a few checks to the inside, took to the outside lane in a bid for the top spot. McCardle and Prunty raced several laps door to door for the top spot.

The damage after the lap 13 spin
McCardle wiggled slightly off turn two on lap 13 which gave Prunty a small run on the outside entering turn three, however as Prunty tried to pull back down to the inside, the nose of McCardle’s car was barely there and the slight contact sent Prunty’s car spinning around where it was struck cosmetically by DeStefano as he tried to skid to a stop. Both Prunty and DeStefano were able to continue as McCardle and Prunty were placed at the rear of the field for their involvement in the caution, leaving Dan Church and Braison Bennett to lead the field back to green with DeStefano and McIntee directly behind them. Bennett and Church batted alongside each other for the lead over the next three circuits with Bennett having a slight advantage over Church from the outside. The handle on Bennett’s outside run went away on lap 16 as the back of his car swung around in turn four, drawing a caution flag and leaving Church as the leader over DeStefano, Poenitsch and McIntee. Church and DeStefano fought for the lead as racing resumed with Church on the inside and DeStefano holding strong on the outside.

On lap 19, Church had difficulty holding his car on the inside and as it walked up the track in turn four, DeStefano took control of the lead as Poenitsch raced by Church and into second. DeStefano maintained the lead in the second half of the race through two more caution periods for minor incidents and in the closing laps, the handling went away on Poenitsch’s car and he exited the track as Prunty and McCardle recovered from their earlier spin to charge back into the top five. DeStefano drove to the win over Church while Prunty worked his way back into third place just ahead of McCardle in fourth. Pat McIntee was fifth.





Justin Poenitsch won the late model fast dash and Braison Bennett was victorious in the heat race. Alex Prunty was the fastest qualifier at 12.440 seconds.

June 10th's Race Recap - By Dan Margetta

Alex set fast time for the 2nd consecutive week in a row!
Ryan DeStefano scored his first feature win of the season in the 35-lap late model main event, turning back a challenge by Alex Prunty at the finish.

Dan Church and Alex Prunty swapped the lead in the opening laps as the raced alongside each other before Church claimed the lead for himself using the inside lane. Prunty began to fade slightly in the high line as Ryan DeStefano worked his way around for second in the inner groove. Prunty fell in line in third just ahead of Dave McCardle while Justin Poenitsch and Andy Welter raced for fifth. DeStefano was able to close quickly on Church as they entered the corners but Church’s line off the turns enabled him to keep the lead despite DeStefano’s numerous challenges. Behind the top three, Poenitsch raced into fourth place by passing McCardle to the inside as the leaders up front continued to race in single file formation. On lap 19, DeStefano charged wide off turn two and looked to be making an outside groove bid for the lead but as he entered turn three, he quickly dove to the bottom groove and was able to pull alongside Church for the lead. With the preferred inside lane, DeStefano was able to grab the lead and Prunty filled the opening on the inside to take over second as Church moved back in line in third. Prunty made many attempts to challenge DeStefano for the lead on the outside but each time he would come up short while behind the lead duo, Poenitsch charged around Church for third place. With little success with his outside lane bids for the top spot, Prunty moved to DeStefano’s rear bumper looking for a way to route to the inside as the laps clicked away. On the final lap, DeStefano held tightly to the inside line and a final look to the outside in a bid for the win by Prunty came up short as DeStefano raced under the checkered flag for the victory. Prunty finished a close second followed by Poenitsch in third, completing his best race of the season to date. Dave McCardle finished in fourth and Andy Welter crossed the stripe in fifth.

 Dave McCardle won the late model fast dash and Al Stippich took top honors in the late model heat race over Andy Welter and Justin Poenitsch. Adam Peschek finished fourth and Brittiny Helmers was fifth. Alex Prunty was the fastest qualifier after turning in a lap at 12.461 seconds.

Last Weeks Race Recap ~ By Dan Margetta

Dave McCardle survived an aggressive 35-lap late model feature event to score his first main event victory of the season.

 


 Justin Poenitsch and Jerry Mueller occupied the front row at the start of the race and Poenitsch edged to the lead as the two made contact entering turn one. Everyone sorted things out cleanly up front as Dave McCardle battled John DeAngelis Jr. for third with Ryan DeStefano close behind. Alex Prunty and Braison Bennett soon joined McCardle, DeAngelis, and DeStefano in the battle for third as up front Mueller dogged Poenitsch for the lead. Mueller ran Poenitsch hard into turn three and when Poenitsch’s car washed wide in turn four, Mueller dove to the inside in a bid for the lead. However, Mueller’s car broke loose upon the exit of turn four which resulted in both he and Poenitsch charging nearly even into turn one for the lead. Poenitsch gained a slight advantage off turn two and he held the lead despite both cars touching numerous times in the corner and down the backstretch.

Mueller made another bid for the lead a lap later and with the leaders racing aggressively for the top spot, DeAngelis was able to take third place as McCardle raced with Alex Prunty and DeStefano over fourth. After several laps of fender rubbing action up front, Poenitsch’s car slid wide in turn four, allowing Mueller to take the lead as DeAngelis, Prunty, and DeStefano all charged by. The top four remained in an intense battle until the caution flag appeared on lap 16 for a spin by Brittiny Helmers in turn two with Mueller leading over DeAngelis, Prunty, and DeStefano. As the green flag appeared, Mueller broke away for the lead on the inside as Prunty raced alongside DeAngelis in a battle for second with DeStefano, Poenitsch, and McCardle all following close behind.

With Mueller continuing to lead, Prunty was able to pass DeAngelis on the inside for second and DeStefano took advantage of the move by also moving to the inside of DeAngelis for third. As DeAngelis tried to move back to the inside lane, he was clipped slightly by Poenitsch which caused DeAngelis to spin in turn four and draw the caution flag on lap 18. Mueller and Prunty lined up at the front of the field for the restart with Mueller leading into turn one. Prunty loosened up Mueller in turn four and made a bid for the lead but when Mueller cut to the inside in an attempt to defend the lead, he made contact with Prunty’s car and slid into the infield as behind the leaders, Dan Church hit the turn one wall hard and collected Andy Welter in the attempt to avoid the mishap causing the yellow flag to appear again. This time for the restart, DeStefano lined up on the outside of Mueller at the front of the field and as racing resumed, Mueller maintained the lead while McCardle worked his way into second with an inside pass on DeStefano. The caution flag appeared for another time on lap 31 when DeAngelis and Andy Wendt tangled in turn two and Adam Peschek and Justin Poenitsch became involved in the incident as well. Mueller again led on the restart but this time McCardle lined up alongside and he was able to make the outside work enough to clear Mueller for the lead.

Once out front, McCardle maintained the lead and drove to the victory over DeStefano, Mueller, and Prunty. Andy Wendt finished fifth.

Andy Welter won the late model heat over Adam Peschek and Al Stippich. Andy Wendt finished fourth and Braison Bennett finished fifth. Jerry Mueller was the winner of the late model fast dash and Alex Prunty was the fastest qualifier with a lap of 12.449 seconds.
