Maier Masters ASCS Midwest Region at Butler County Motorplex
RISING CITY, Neb. (July 28, 2006) -- In a duel between a pair of No. 11x Sprint Cars, it was Garry Lee Maier outlasting Gregg Bakker to win Friday night's 25-lap American Sprint Car Series Midwest Region feature at the Butler County Motorplex.
Maier gunned into the lead at the outset from his pole position, but it was just a matter of time before seventh-starter Bakker climbed to second and began challenging for the point. Bakker briefly slid past Maier for the lead in turns three and fourth on the 23rd lap, but Maier fought back into the lead before the lap was completed.
Maier held on over the final two circuits to post his third overall ASCS feature win of the year and first in ASCS Midwest Region competition aboard Scott Brown's Salina-powered Lubbock Wrecker Service/Mid-State Hay No. 11x Eagle.
Bakker settled for second at the stripe, with Jake Peters advancing from tenth to take the show position. Sam Hafertepe, Jr., raced from the 16th starting position to snare fourth, with defending series champion Billy Alley rounding out the top five.
Gene Ackland claimed sixth, with current series point leader Toby Chapman, Rick Ideus, Tony Bruce, Jr., and Ken Klabunde completing the top ten.
Chad Humston, Maier and Ackland each scored heat race wins.
Scott Milan's night came to an early end after flipping in the second heat race. Milan was uninjured.
