Scott Weber, Mark Miner, Troy Naeger, Danny Ems & Jacob Rexing take wins at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55!
Pevely, MO (May 5th, 2012) Scott Weber, Mark Miner, Troy Naeger, Danny Ems and Jacob Rexing all claimed feature wins on Saturday, May 5th at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55. Track crews had the 1/3 mile dirt oval prepped to be very fast all night long as well as being very smooth which allowed the drivers to race high, low or right down the middle.
With twenty UMP DIRTcar Super Late Models entered, Scott Weber would take command of the main event at the drop of the green flag. Weber would open up a small but comfortable lead in the early going. With the race having a long green flag run near the end, Weber would encounter lots of lapped traffic, many running the same line as he was. This allowed Dewayne Kiefer to move right in on his rear bumper as the laps were winding down. Weber made the decision to abandon his line and go to the high side to worked past the lapped cars that were holding him up. This turned out to be the right choice and allowed Weber to get away from Kiefer, who was trying to work past the slower cars on the low side. Weber would get the win while Kiefer held off the hard charging Randy Korte in the closing laps to get second. Korte, who was in sixth place with just six laps remaining, decided to move up to the high side and worked his way up to challenge Kiefer for second, but settled for a third place finish. Bobby Pierce would finish fourth while Billy Laycock rounded out the top five.
