Peters Pounces on ASCS Midwest vs. Northern Plains Ideus Memorial at I-80

GREENWOOD, Neb. (June 16, 2006) -- Jake "The Snake" Peters earned his second American Sprint Car Series Regional feature win of the season by topping Monday night's ASCS Midwest vs. Northern Plains 25-lap Lawrence Ideus Memorial Race at Nebraska Raceway Park's I-80 Speedway.

Peters had to work for it though, battling past 16-year-old Jack Dover on the eighth round en route to victory lane aboard the Weseman-powered Folken Brothers Trucking/Bubba Farms No. 57x Schnee.

While Peters gridded the feature field from the front row outside, it was polesitter Dover gunning into the early lead and amassing a half straightaway advantage in the opening four rounds.

Peters picked up the pace and closed in on Dover by the seventh round then took the lead entering turn three a lap later. Peters survived three cautions over the remaining rounds and despite one heavy dose of lapped traffic, cruised to the stripe unabated in the final rounds.

Dover held the runner-up slot until the final circuits when Mike Chadd took over second for keeps on the 23rd lap. Dover settled for an ASCS career-best finish of third, with Rick Ideus and current ASCS Northern Plains point leader Chuck Swenson rounding out the top five.

Jason Danley crossed the stripe sixth, with Don Droud, Jr., charging from 17th to snare seventh. Luke Cranston, Ryan Roberts and Toby Chapman completed the top ten.

Ken Klabunde, Danley, Dover and Ideus topped heat race action for the 34-car field, with Droud winning the "B" Main.
