Nygaard Nabs ASCS Northern Plains Win in Cheater's Day Finale
BRANDON, SD (October 1, 2006) -- Wade Nygaard raced to victory lane in the season finale for the American Sprint Car Series Northern Plains Region, besting a field of 41 entries in Sunday's 42nd Annual Cheater's Day Classic finale at Huset's Speedway.
While Nygaard scored his third series win of the year aboard the Auto Finance Super Center/North Star Telecom No. 9 Schnee, it was Chuck Swenson officially becoming the first ASCS Northern Plains Region champion with an eighth place showing.
With the wire-to-wire win, Nygaard also pocketed an extra $1,000 by accumulating the most points over the two-day affair, bringing his take for Sunday alone to $2,500.
Nygaard outgunned polesitter Mark Pace for the pole at the drop of the green flag and paced the field wire-to-wire to score his first career win at Huset's Speedway. Marlon Jones snared runner-up honors, with Curt Lund taking the show position. Rookie shoe Pace earned a strong fourth place run, with Natalie Sather earning her first career ASCS top-five finish by rounding out the top five.
Eric Lutz earned runner-up honors in series points by posting a sixth-place run, with Rick Ideus, Chuck Swenson, Dusty Wasmund and Jody Rosenboom completing the top ten.
While Nygaard earned Cheater's Day championship honors, others collecting bonus money for ranking among the top five over the day event included Swenson, Lutz, Ideus and Jones.
