By Dan MargettaSlinger, Wis., June 3— Alex Prunty survived a clean hard fought battle with Steve Apel and then turned back a hard charging Brad Mueller to win the 60-lap First Round of the Triple Challenge super late model feature in a photo finish Sunday night at the Slinger Super Speedway.
“I’ll you what…Steve (Apel) and Alex (Prunty)…those two ran a great race running side by side for so many laps.” Brad Mueller said after first moving into second place when Apel experienced mechanical problems with five laps to go and then coming up just inches short at the finish, “My hat’s off to them.”
“The car was great tonight and we’ve been doing little tweaks on it, “ Mueller continued,” I just wish Alex would’ve cleared him about five laps earlier because the car was really, really good.”
Mike Egan won the 20-lap super late model semi-feature over Mike Held and Jordan DeVoy.. Jake Vanoskey finished fourth and Jerry Eckhardt was fifth. Super late model heat races were won by Jake Vanoskey, Alex Prunty, and Ryan DeStefano while Brad Mueller was the fastest qualifier after circling the speedway in 11.241 seconds.
