May 12, 2012 - The "BIG O" Finally Gets Back on Track!

Ogilvie Raceway

By: R.J. Sahlstrom (May 12)

 

Almost one month had passed since the Season Opener before the Ogilvie Raceway was able to open the doors for racing again. The track had gone back into hibernation, but finally decided to rise to life after numerous attempts were made to wake it up. The skies were clear with the thermometer reading close to 70 degrees as the roar of the engines made musical sounds throughout the 3/8 mile oval.

 

The WISSOTA Dirt Track Racing Series Modifieds showcased 23 of the best drivers around. Included in the program was the running of a make-up Feature postponed from the Season Opener. Leading the field to green in the make-up were JT Johnson and Kelly Estey. Johnson bolted out to the early lead and would pace the field for the first thirteen laps. Estey grabbed the front spot on the next circuit and never looked back taking the checkers in his COMO Oil & Propane sponsored ride. Rounding out the top five were Johnson, Dave Cain, Joey Jensen and Dustin Nelson.

 

Three heats were needed to set the field for the “Big O Show”. Heat race number one was captured by Johnson. Heat race number two saw the checkers drop for Dan Ebert. The final heat race was claimed by Tim Alexander. Lined up on the front row for the main event were Alexander and Larry Zeller. The green flag dropped and Alexander began his quest for the checkers. He would drive a masterful race while leading the field for the first eighteen laps. On the nineteenth round he drifted a little high out of turn four. That would be the only chance anyone else had to take the lead. Zeller took the small opening and broke into the lead to pace the rest for the final two laps. He rode the Galloper Chassis into victory lane followed by Alexander, Ebert, Estey and Jensen.

 

The WISSOTA Super Stock heats saw Mike Loomis, Marcus Simonson and Adam Ayotte claim the victories. Leading the field to the green flag for the Feature were Larry Fitzsimmons and Simonson. Dan Gullikson weaved his way to the front on lap one from a row four start. He blazed a trail to victory lane by leading every lap in his Lakes Liquor sponsored ride chased by Dave Mass, Loomis, Fitzsimmons and Marcus Simonson.

 

The WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds registered 32 strong at the pit gate making it the biggest class field for the night. Heat winners were Ryan Bowers, Mark Blood, David Siercks and Dan Ebert. A Consolation was needed to determine the final entries into the Main Event. Qualifying out of the Consolation were Travis Schulte, Gino Fontecchio, Brandon Bombardo and Andrew Schuelke. At the front for the start of the A-Feature were Bowers and Charlie Zander. Bowers would blast out to the lead on lap one. He drove an excellent race as he piloted his Moments by Melissa sponsored car to the checkers finishing a clean sweep. His wife was the first to greet him in victory lane and presented him the trophy along with a very energetic victory celebration dance. Behind him at the checkers were Joe Voigt, Siercks, Zander and Justin Oestreich.

 

The WISSOTA Street Stock heats were won by Rick Nelson and Keith Tourville. Pacing the field to the green for the Feature were Tourville and Jeff Frey. Tourville grabbed the early lead on lap one and held his ground through lap thirteen. Behn Mensen orchestrated a nice pass to take the front spot on lap fourteen. He never looked back from that point on to take the C & S Automotive car to the checkers. His trip to victory lane was erased as he failed a post-race inspection. The win was awarded to the second car to cross the finish line. Tourville got the win and a clean sweep followed by Kurt Becken, Justin Pogones, Nelson and John Adams.

 

The WISSOTA National Mod-4 class saw top honors going to Dustin Zieske in the lone heat race. Zieske and Brandon Lindquist were on the front row for the Feature. Zieske took the only lead of the race in his Zieske Trucking entry and never looked back. He completed a sweep for the show followed by Matt Halls, Tyler Larson, Kyle Thell and Lindquist.

 

Josh Paulson and Quain Busitzky took the checkers in the Hornet heats. Clay Blosberg crossed the finish line first and won the Feature.

 

The 2012 season is now back underway and is off to a second exciting start. The next event at Ogilvie Raceway will be a regular program on May 19th featuring the very popular School Bus Races and Armed Forces Night. Come on out to the races and cheer your favorite School on to a victory. The first green flag drops at 6:30pm.  If you are looking for some exciting dirt track racing on a Saturday night, come to the “BIG O” for Saturday Night Speed.
