Fillbrunn led the trio until lap ten when Unglert followed by Hentrich made the pass for the lead. As the laps wound down Hentrich nursing a bent up racecar clung to Unglert’s rear bumper but did not have enough to make the pass. Unglert took starter Tyler Knitter’s checkered flag scoring his first win at Borgers. Henrich held on for second spot but clinched the 2013 Dirt 600 Sprint championship. Fillbrunn finished third.
Austin Fehr’s win in Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints held a pleasant surprise as he took the lead of the TQ Midget point race for the 2013 championship. The title race will go down to the wire with the final point race September 7 between Fehr and Mike Fillbrunn. Bill Unglert, Austin Fehr, and Geoffrey Sutton,\ charged to turn one at the start. Unglert, looking to back up his Dirt 600 win with a TQ win led for the first two go arounds until Fehr took the lead on lap three. A lap later Sutton would successfully make his bid for second with his sights set on the leader. At this point a two car battle developed for the lead between Fehr and Sutton. The remaining laps were anyone’s guess who would come home first but Fehr held strong taking the win with Sutton on his rear bumper. Unglert came home third followed by Corey Cormier and Mike Fillbrunn. Geoffrey Sutton’s second place finish, his best of the season, moved him to fourth in points and in striking distance of Don Zrinski for third in the September 7 finale.
It seems when Ton Arntz shows up at Borgers Speedway he usually heads to one place and that place is victory lane. The AllStart Slingshot main started with Arntz on the pole followed by Mike Lapicki and Hunter Smith. Smith grabbed second from Lapicki coming out of turn two and one lap later Ryan Quackenbush took over second with Tom Hennessy falling in behind Smith and Lapick fifth. Smith not satisfied with third place got by Quackenbush to regain second and Lapicki made the pass on Quackerbush for third. As Arntz opened a small lead Smith, Lapicki, and Quackenbush staged a spectacular three car battle for the runner up spot. In true Slingshot “Nail Biting” action which has become the norm at Borgers, Arntz streaked to the checkered flag followed by Smith, Lapicki, Quackenbush, and Hennessy. Tom Hennessey wrapped up the AllStar Slingshot point championship with Mike Moyer also locking up second. Mike Lapicki and Hunter Smith are locked in a tight battle for third place points which will also go down to the wire September 7.
Mega Bucks is up for grabs in the fast approaching five race OctoberFest Series starting September 28. Full details and schedule will be released shortly.
Points will end September 7 when Borgers Speedway goes back to our afternoon schedule with a 2:00 p.,m. starting time.
