Dobesh Does it at I-90 in ASCS Northern Plains Action
HARTFORD, SD (August 15, 2006) -- Bryan Dobesh posted his second American Sprint Car Series Northern Plains Region feature victory of the year by wiring the field in Tuesday night's 25-lap main event at I-90 Speedway.
Dobesh gunned into the lead from the pole position at the outset and led throughout to best the 34-car field.
Joe Riedel held the runner-up slot over the opening rounds until Clint Garner and Chuck Swenson charged by after a dozen laps. Swenson made a bid for second with just a handful of laps remaining, but Garner fought off the challenge to hold the spot.
Current series point leader Swenson took the show position behind Dobesh and Garner, with Jake Peters and Chris Shcmelzle rounding out the top five. Riedel was sixth, with Micah Schliemann, Scott Winters, Gregg Bakker and Curt Lund completing the top ten.
The red flag flew during the feature when Eric Lutz lost power exiting turn four and collected Lee Grosz, who flipped. There were no injuries.
Riedel, Bakker, Schmelzle and Dobesh topped heat race action for the 34-car field, with Winters and Donovan Peterson winning the twin "B" Mains.
