(West Salem, WI)- Brad Powell took command of the field on lap five, and went on to claim the Five Star Telecom 25 Saturday night at the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway. Pole setter Troy Goodenough would lead the opening four laps before surrendering the top spot to Powell, who started tenth in the 25 car field.

Tim Nelson was able to slide by Goodenough to claim second on the eighth circuit before relinquishing second to Mark Lamoreaux four laps later. Lamoreaux was unable to catch Powell, and maintained his second position through the conclusion of the final Midwest Fuels Late Model feature event of the 2000 season. Paul Proksch fought his way through tough competition to finish third. Tom Carlson crossed the line in fourth with Kevin Nuttleman rounding out the top five.

With his fifth place showing Nuttleman was crowned the 2000 Midwest Fuels Late Model Champion. This is Nuttleman's seventh Late Model Championship at the West Salem, WI facility, and second in a row.

Blake Horstman topped 24 other drivers to claim the victory in the Five Star Telecom 15 for the Ray Hutson Chevrolet Sportsman. Horstman led from the start, but nearly surrendered his lead on numerous occasions to a hard charging Tony Ciano.

Ciano's attempts at the lead would be halted, as second place point man Corey Jankowski attempted to take the runner-up position from Ciano. Jankowski would brush the wall while making his move, having to settle for third, Jeff Baker claimed fourth and Rob Mahan made a strong return to finish fifth.

Point leader Dan Gilster posted the top speed in qualifying, and followed it up with a sixth place showing in the feature event. All of this allowed Gilster to add one point to his point lead, which is now a narrow 26 points over Jankowski. The Championship will be decided on Thursday night October 5 as part of the Oktoberfest Race Weekend.

Jeff Edwards pulled his Thunderstock into victory lane as he held off point leader Jason Bolster who finished second and third place finisher Rob Curran. The three battled for the lead during the final five laps, with Bolster sneaking by Curran on the inside to claim second at the checkers.

Early race leader Anthony Wheeler led a group of drivers across the line for a fourth place showing. Al Bartels managed to finish fifth in a race that saw drivers go as many as four wide to gain the upper hand on their fellow drivers.

Mark Lamoreaux and Corey Jankowski won the United Auto Supply Shootout for the Late Models and Sportsman divisions. The fields consisted of feature winners from their respected classes in a 15 lap no holds barred shootout format.

This Saturday night is the EVE OF DESTRUCTION, featuring the Trailer Race of Destruction, Green Mamba Jet Car, Monster Truck Madness and the School Bus Jump. The mayhem is set to begin at 7pm, it will be fun for the whole family.
