Roach Ends Drought With Win At I-94 Raceway
SAUK CENTRE, MN (June 25, 2005) - It's been a couple of years, but former Track Champion Bryan Roach was back in Victory Lane in the ASA Super Late Models at the I-94 Raceway in Sauk Centre. JR Studniski took the lead from the start as Jon Olson squeezed between two cars in turn two to take second. Fast qualifier Roach was on the move as he went from twelfth starting position to third in the first nine laps. A couple of laps later, Roach got past Olson for second as Studniski set a quick pace out front. The lead margin slowly eroded as lapped traffic allowed Roach to catch Studniski. The front pair ran nose-to-tail for several laps, trading paint a couple of times before Roach took the lead on lap 23. Studniski hung right with Roach the rest of the way as they finished less than a car's length from each other by the time the checkered flag waved in the cautionless 40 lap event. Ritch Johnson turned in a career best as he finished third ahead of Nate Thiesse and Eugene Dick.
Kevin Woeste used all 20 laps as he won the Modified Feature. Rookie Jeremy Fleck took control of the race from the start as Jerry Voigt rolled into the second spot. Dave Ostendorf brought out the only caution of the race with his spin in turn three near the half-way part of the race. Fleck handled the restart as Voigt began to pressure. This allowed Woeste, who started at the tail of field, to pull in behind both the leaders. Voigt used the low groove to take the lead on lap 12, but Fleck stayed alongside and regained the position two laps later. Voigt rallied to get the lead back, before Fleck again made the high side work and he retook the top spot. Woeste watched the leaders fight it out and after trying to get under Voigt a couple of times, opted for the high side as he moved to second with one to go. Woeste pulled alongside Fleck as the leaders dueled down the backstretch. It was anyone's race to win out of the final turn and Woeste hooked up just enough to win the drag race down the front stretch for the win.
Matt Hoeschen took his first career win in the Thunder Car Feature. Starting from the pole, Hoeschen took off with Joe Karl and Jarmin Henry right behind. Henry moved by to take the lead on lap three. Hoeschen was determined as he reclaimed the lead two laps later. Back in the field, Patrick Amelung was putting on a show by dodging cars left and right as he tried to get towards the front. Hoeschen opened things up as he set a quick pace and wasn't challenged the rest of the way as he took the win. Amelung's rally allowed him to finish second with Dirk Henry taking third.
Matt Peterson backed up his brother's win a week ago by taking his first career UCAR Feature win. Peterson took the lead from the wave of the green as Corey Flynn moved by Josh Christi for second. Peterson stretched his lead to a full straightaway before a caution for debris slowed the action with five laps to go. On the restart, Peterson had David Bolstad on his bumper. Bolstad tried the low side as Peterson held onto the lead. With three laps left, Peterson slid high in turn four, but he quickly regained control and managed to hold the lead. Bolstad shadowed Peterson the final few laps as he rolled on to the win, the second ever for a truck in as many weeks.
Tony Robertson was declared the winner in the TQ Stock Car Feature. Robertson, in his first start in a TQ car, took the lead from the start. Matt Poindexter moved to second, before he spun to bring out the race's lone caution on lap three. When the action picked back up, Robertson had Leroy Nelson turning up the heat. The leaders raced wheel-to-wheel setting up a fight to the finish. Both leaders were even exiting the final turn and they got together and hit the wall before the flagstand. Nelson appeared to cross the line first, but track officials penalized him two positions for rough driving, thus giving the win to Robertson.
