MARNE, Mich. (June 12, 2004) - Bobby Stremme needed some help in the form of lapped traffic to make the pass for the lead, but once in front he cruised to a margin of victory of more than four seconds to capture his first ASA Late Model Series win in the Berlin 100 at Berlin Raceway.
Stremme, the point leader heading into the race, was second when a lap 77 caution put him on the back bumper of the No. 29 of Brian Campbell, the pole sitter. Stremme got a great restart in his No. 53 Meijer Chevrolet and the two cars raced side-by-side for the lead for three laps before Stremme was able to get the inside line and make the pass stick.
"I saw that he was running higher, and higher, and higher and I was loose from the get go but I knew I could get off the bottom better and it just looked like he kept on pushing and pushing," Stremme explained. "I was trying to follow him for the most part. I let him go at the beginning because I wanted to see what kind of line he would run. I am so glad to win here at Berlin the first time ever seeing the track."
"Once he got by me and showed me the line I just let him go. He was faster," Campbell said. "I got into him a little bit and it was my fault totally. He is the points leader and did a heck of a job."
