NEBRASKA STATE FAIR PARK RACEWAY 1800 State Fair Park Drive Lincoln NE 68508
LINCOLN, NE-(August 28, 2001)-Mike Chadd (360 Sprint) and Ron Dunn (Pro-Am) each captured their first state titles as racing continued Tuesday night at Nebraska State Fair Park Raceway.
Chadd ran as low as fourth early in the sprint feature, but bided his time as Jason Danley and Greg Bolte fought for the top spot early on. Danley led from the start, but after a yellow flag Bolte jumped into the lead and gained a half straightaway lead until tangling with the lapped car of Ken Lange. Both Bolte and Lange suffered heavy damage to their machines but walked away unhurt from the double flip. Chadd had just taken second away from Danley two laps before, and upon the restart he motored away to a safe lead, despite several yellow flags. Danley finished second, but was challenged at the end by Billy Alley, Bruce Divis and Doug Lovegrove, as all four finished within a couple car lengths of each other.
Ron Dunn held off two time and defending state champ, Bob Zoubek for the Pro-Am win, despite constant pressure from the former tittles. Daniel Bohlmeyer, Lance Bergman and Kevin Anderson rounded out the top five.
Sprint heats were taken by Jeff Lowery, Bolte, T. J. Robertson and Lange. Pro-Am heats were won by Brian Forian, Dunn, and Bohlmeyer. <pre>
