LaMere Back in Victory Lane
By Vikki Higginbotham
Electric City Speedway hosted the regular classes of WISSOTA Street Stocks, Midwest Modifieds, Super Stocks and Modifieds Saturday night. During the Street Stock feature the previous week’s winner, Donavon Sorenson worked his way through to the front to claim his second victory in as many weeks. The battle in the event was for fourth place between Jeff Sekuterski and Troy Weninger. Sekuterski got a little loose coming off of turn four on the final lap turning Weninger around. Weninger came across the checkered flags backwards in the fourth place finishing position. As the remaining drivers were racing to the finish BJ Warehime hit Weninger head on just past the flag stand.
Doug LaPierre found his way to the front of the Midwest Modifieds and secured a second victory this season. On a track designed for him, Chad Johnson dominated the Modifieds.
After over two years without a visit to Victory Lane, Pat LaMere found his line and held off Jake Tucker and Pacer Popham. LaMere’s family joined him in Victory Lane for the trophy presentation.
The Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series comes to the speedway on Wednesday, July 11, 2012. For advanced tickets and information go to www.electriccityspeedway.com
