18th Annual FYE Motorsports MTH Fall Classic Completed Just as Mother Nature Made Her Move.

Ogilvie, MN (October 9) – With mother nature threatening rain, Night 2 of the FYE Motorsports MTH Fall Classic race night shifted to a 1:00pm start. The afternoon was jam packed with 21 races on the schedule which included nine feature events.

The WISSOTA Street Stocks were the first feature event of the day and Nick Traynor and Russell Kostreba brought the drivers to the green. Traynor sped off with the lead as Justin Vogel slid into second and challenged Traynor. As the top two pulled away, Kostreba, Cody Kummer and Parker Anderson raced three wide for third. Traynor began to put space between him and Vogel, while Anderson closed in. Anderson dove low next to Vogel and stole second. The yellow then flew, and as the drivers took the green, there was a mess in turns one and two. Traynor remained in command as the race resumed, with Vogel and Andrew Hanson in tow. The top drivers stayed in that order the remainder of the race with Nick Traynor taking the win. Justin Vogel, Andrew Hanson, Cody Kummer and Kolby Kiehl earned the top points. After drivers went through tech, Nick Traynor was disqualified, and Justin Vogel was declared the Fall Classic champion for his fourth time.

Travis Schulte grabbed the lead when the green waved for the WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds. Corey Mehrwerth took second with Ryan Savoy in third. Savoy reeled in and slid next to Mehrwerth for second, but Mehrwerth pulled away. After a restart, Savoy charged to Schulte’s door but Schulte held the point. Mehrwerth moved back into the second point as another caution occurred. Schulte, Mehrwerth and Savoy remained the top drivers as the green waved, but after a slip up, Savoy raced to second and Justin Froemming grabbed third. Savoy tried to chase down Schulte with a few laps to go, but Schulte kept his cruise set and took his third Fall Classic win. Remaining top points went to Ryan Savoy, Justin Froemming, Corey Mehrwerth and Zach Benson.

As the WISSOTA Late Models took the green, Dave Mass shot into the lead. Nick Panitzke took second while Pat Doar held third. Doar worked the high side and quickly flew next to Mass. Doar cruised into the top point and within six laps, the leaders were in lapped traffic. A couple of cautions slowed the drivers, however Doar took command when the race resumed. Again, as a few laps passed, Doar found himself in slower traffic which allowed Mass to reel him in. Doar and Mass were stuck in traffic, and they swapped for the top spot lap after lap. Once they cleared traffic, Mass snagged the lead, but Doar did not let him out of sight. Doar and Mass were once again, door to door for the lead when Doar claimed it. The final 10 laps went by quick as Doar stretched his lead. Doar grabbed the checkers and won his third straight WISSOTA Late Model Fall Classic championship. Dave Mass, Nick Panitzke, Don Shaw and Travis Budisalovich rounded out the top five.

With the National Points battle very close in the WISSOTA Modifieds, there were many fans ready to watch this exciting race. Shane Sabraski and Dan Ebert were on the front row, and when the green waved, Sabraski sped off. Matt Aukland grabbed second, Jeremy Nelson (4) took third while Ebert worked the high line. Ebert made his was back into second while Nelson (4) worked on Aukland. After a quick restart, drivers were three wide as they battled. As they came through turn three contact occurred and six drivers sat in the curve. Once the track was clear, Sabraski led the drivers back to green. The top racers remained side by side as they rounded the Big O, but it was Sabraski who retook the lead. Ebert dove low to Sabraski’s door and slid up the track. Ebert hit some loose clay which allowed Sabraski to drive away. Ebert once again chased Sabraski, and with 10 laps to go, they were lapping cars. Ebert tried another slid job, but again couldn’t make the car stick. Sabraski kept the lead, and as the white waved, Ebert was on Sabraski’s rear. As they entered the final turn the drivers were door to door, and it was a drag race to the finish. Dan Ebert crossed the line first and became a two-time Fall Classic Champion. Shane Sabraski finished second with Jeremy Nelson (4), Tyler Peterson and Ryan Gierke in top points.

Shane Sabraski jumped from the Mod to his WISSOTA Super Stock for the next race event. Sabraski took the lead as the green flew with Dave Flynn and Dylan Nelson to his rear. As other drivers raced three wide, Nelson shot by Flynn for second. Just then, contact occurred between cars which resulted in Matthew Larson and Butch Butcher into the wall and fence. After drivers were sorted and the race resumed, Sabraski retained the lead. Flynn, Nelson and Dexton Koch raced three wide which allowed Sabraski to drive away. Sabraski established a solid lead, however Nelson slowly closed the gap. Sabraski caught slower traffic with four laps to go, but he cruised to the checkers and won his 7th Super Stock Fall Classic feature. Dylan Nelson, Dave Flynn, Dexton Koch and Dustin Nelson were the top finishers.

Ryan Mikkelson, Max Nelson and Gavin Tarras took points one, two and three when the USRA Late Model feature began. As Nelson chased after Mikkelson he slid up the track which allowed Tarras to cruise into second. Tarras tried to chase after Mikkelson, however Mikkelson took the win by a straight-away. Remaining top points went to Gavin Tarras, Joe Provinzino, Larry Fitzsimmons and Max Nelson.

The WISSOTA Mod Fours had a tricky time completing their feature. There were a few cautions with a couple being severe. Dean Larson was the early leader in the race, but after a couple cautions, Larson, Skyler Smith and Dustin Holtquist were three wide for the lead. Holtquist nosed out the top point with Smith and Tommy Bawden to his rear. Bawden moved into second and with three laps left, Bawden was within a car length of Holtquist. The yellow waved, but when the race resumed, the leaders rubbed tires which ended with five cars colliding in turn four. After drivers were sorted and realigned, they retook the green. The drivers entered turn one, another caution was triggered as one car upside down and two others on top of one another. Once again, Holtquist brought the cars back to green and took the Fall Classic win for the fourth time. Remaining top points were awarded to, Chad Funt, Robert Holtquist, Skyler Smith and Connor Hass. After drivers went through tech, Hass was disqualified and Dean Shaver earned the fifth point.

Mike Schnider took first and Josh Berg grabbed second as the green waved for the WISOSTA Pure Stock feature. The top two drivers drove away from Michael Roth in third as Austin Carlson put pressure on Roth. Roth drifted high on the track surface which allowed drivers to creep by when the yellow waved. Just as the race resumed, more bumping and rubbing took place and another caution was triggered. The green waved for the final time which was followed by the white and checkered flags. Mike Schnider led every lap of the race and took his first Fall Class feature win. Josh Berg, Austin Carlson, Michael Roth and Kevin Baumgarner rounded out the top five.

As the WISSOTA Hornets took the green, the yellow quickly followed with cars scattered all over. Once the race restarted, Matt Pederson and Marcus Ammerman brought the drivers through the curves. Pederson pulled into the lead but Ammerman worked Pederson. Joseph Wilber moved into third and closed the gap with the leaders. Wilber drove to Ammerman’s door, but Ammerman broke away and chased after Pederson. As the white flag dropped, Pederson was in slower traffic but he held the lead and took the checkers for his 2nd Fall Classic win. Marcus Ammerman, Joseph Wilber, Mac Johnston and Jacob Aarhus grabbed top points.

With the conclusion of the Hornet feature, the 18th Annual FYE Motorsports MTH Fall Class was complete even with the night long threat of rain. The next and final race of the 2021 race season at Wagamon’s Ogilvie Raceway will be the Topless Nationals on October 22nd and 23rd.
