Swenson Swipes ASCS Northern Plains Honors at I-90 Speedway
HARTFORD, SD (July 18, 2006) -- Chuck Swenson padded his American Sprint Car Series Northern Plains Region point lead by charging past Jody Rosenboom on the 16th round en route to victory lane in Tuesday night's 25-lap feature at I-90 Speedway.
Outside front row starter Rosenboom outgunned polesitter Johnn Cressman for the lead at the drop of the green flag and weathered several early cautions, including a lap six stoppage for a Mike Sitzmann, Jr., flip in turn two after being collected by a spinning Bryan Dobesh. Sitzmann emerged uninjured.
Swenson went to work on the leader and slipped by on the low side of Rosenboom in turn two on the 16th circuit to take command. Swenson raced on to the checkered flag aboard the Fisher-powered K&C Conversions No. X Maxim, with Cressman taking the runner-up slot.
Brain Brown picked up a pair of positions in the final laps to snare third, as Rosenboom slipped to fourth. Jake Peters rounded out the top five, with Eric Lutz, Dustin Lindquist, 14th-starter Scott Winters, 17th-starter Dobesh and 19th-starter Micah Schliemann completing the top ten.
Brown, Peters, Rosenboom and Shawn Van Wyhe topped heat race action for the 34-car field, with Dobesh winning the "B" Main. Gregg Bakker returned for "B" Feature action after a heat race tumble.
