Each victory gets sweeter as they come! Bob Senneker captured his 82nd ASA win at LaCrosse before a huge Wisconsin crowd. Bob was the quickest during practice on Saturday, but was only 3rd fastest in qualifying. When the green flag dropped, the weather broke; which was questionable, and it turned out to be a beautiful day. Bob dropped to 5th at the start and by lap 24 he was in 6th while the car was "loose". At lap 75 he was in still in 6th, by lap 100 he was 7th but got back to 5th by lap 107. The 2nd caution waved at lap 115, we came in for left side tires and gas. A stellar performance by the Senneker Motorsports crew was turned in, by coming in 5th and came out first. An 11.35 stop was reeled off by John, Jimmy, Brian, Todd, Roger, Mike & Joe, although coming out first, the leaders Eddy and Raines stayed out on the track. When the green drops at lap 121, Bob is in 3rd place, at lap 133 Bob radios the crew that he is losing the brakes again, similar to Jennerstown, only this time it was the rears. When the 3rd caution came at lap 137, Bob dove into the pits to assess and repair the brakes, the crew did just that without losing a lap, when he returned to the track he was running in 14th position. The 4th caution came at lap 170, the "Bluebird" came to the service of the crew to refill the brake fluid and pinch off the line to the right rear, Bob will have to run this race on 3 brakes, when the green waves at lap 177 Bob is running 14th. By lap 194 he is 13th, by lap 200 he is 12th, lap 216 he is 11th, 217 he is 10th. After the 5th caution Bob was 6th, 5th at lap 231, 4th by lap 237, 3rd at lap 240. At the 6th yellow flag, the leader Eddy pits, giving the lead to Loney with Bob running 2nd. When the green flag waved at lap 262, Bob dogged the leader until he passed for the lead at lap 279 and held off the late race charge of Mike Eddy. The finish was Bob, Eddy, Loney , Hansen and Raines. "The crew did a great job to repair the brakes, they are the best!", Senneker said. "The car was quick all weekend, we just need to quit having these little problems". The ASA cars next visit the Lancaster Speedway near Buffalo, New York, that race will be televised live on TNN, starting at 1 pm (edt) ********************************************************************** AC Delco Challenge Series Points (After 9 events) 1.
