The Patsy Simko Memorial race drew 45 Super Late Models Wednesday night at Owosso Speedway. The race paid $6,600 to Roger Wing, who was the winner of the 66-lap feature.
Polesitter, Doug Finley took the lead at the green flag and was under heavy pressure from Wing for the first seven laps. The yellow #55 finally dipped low and was able to slip pass Finley for the lead on the next lap. Finley drifted back and dropped out of the event on lap 19.
Meanwhile moving up from his ninth starting spot was fast qualifier, Tim Felver. By lap 14 he had caught Wing and began testing the leader. Nine laps later Felver pulled his white #5 to the high side of Wing & the pair ran side by side for several laps. Felver finally took over the lead on lap 27 and drew away from Wing. On lap 34 he suddenly slowed with mechanical problems and was passed by early leader Wing.
Dave Kuhlman passed Dan Krzywosinski for second place on lap 40 and began to reel in Wing when the caution flew four laps later. Wing and Kuhlman ran nose to tail for several laps until Kuhlman's tire stagger grew, throwing off the handling. Wing went on to win, finishing over a straightaway ahead of Kuhlman and Krzywosinski who battled the final few laps for second place.
