Motor racing: Bellefeuille leads flag to flag for modified $10,000 WISSOTA purse – Reuters Sports News
SUPERIOR — Jody Bellefeuille was the class of the pack in a WISSOTA Modified 50-lap race Saturday at Gondok Law Speedway as part of the sixth annual Great Lakes Border Battle weekend.
The Duluth driver led from the start, fending off Don Eischens, as the race went on without a warning flag. Bellefeuille stayed on point until the checkered flag, earning a salary of $10,000.
A field of 47 Modifieds took part in the two-day event, joined by 78 other cars in the Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds, Pure Stock and Hornets divisions.
Eischens took second with Ashley Anderson in third.
On the other hand, Saturday’s Midwest Modified feature had five yellow flags, with a race on warnings late in the 25-lap event. Skeeter Estey started from pole and dueled Cody Carlson for first place. Carlson prevailed, taking the lead from Estey for good on a restart with less than five laps to go. Estey finished second with Andrew Inman third.
Shane Sabaraski put in a dominating performance to win in Super Stock, winning by 11.2 seconds in his fourth victory of the season. In Pure Stock, Cory Jorgensen overcame an early challenge from Tom Treviranus to claim a fourth victory in Border Battle.
At the Hornets, Justin Schelitzche took a confident victory, while Carter Matthews finished second and Paul George, who crossed the finish line, finished third.
