Stewart Sails to ASCS Northern Plains Triumph at I-90 Speedway
HARTFORD, S.D. (August 15, 2007) -- Oklahoma hotshoe Shane Stewart added to his streak of recent successes by wiring the field in Wednesday night's 25-lap American Sprint Car Series Northern Plains Region feature event at I-90 Speedway.
Starting from the front row outside in the feature event, Stewart outgunned polesitter Clint Garner for the point at the outset and survived some challenges from Eric Lutz to claim the victory aboard the Shaver-powered Doyle's Harley Davidson No. 1hd Maxim.
Battling a loss of power steering, Lutz made a last run at Stewart on the 18th round as the pair diced through lapped traffic. Working the high line, Stewart slipped around a lapped car and opened up a lead that could not be overcome.
Lutz settled for second, with Scott Winters climbing from ninth to take the show position. Garner crossed the stripe fourth, with Micah Schliemann rounding out the top five.
Current series points leader Chuck Swenson, Jody Rosenboom, current ASCS Midwest Region points leader Natalie Sather, Bryan Dobesh and Mike Sitzmann, Jr., completed the top ten.
