CRESCO, IA (Aug. 21, 2000) — K & T Automotive, Inc., of Cresco sponsored the Sunday night racing action at the Cresco Speedway, sunday.

Larry Schmidt jumped out to the early lead in the Modified "A" main and looked like he would cruise to an easy win with the cars running two- and three-wide behind him. Todd Suhr and Brad Rain tested each other for the number two spot until Suhr took the spot for good with two laps remaining and then set his sights on Schmidt. Schmidt's lead was too much for him to overcome and Schmidt took home the checkered flag with Suhr in second, followed by Rain, Kevin Pittman and Dan Bohr.

Modified heat wins went to Brian Schrage, Schmidt and Rain. Jordan Steir picked up the "B" main win.

Carl Colsch had a great jump early in the Hobby Stock "A" main and quickly moved to the lead position. Once he got to the front, he stayed there and held off a fast-charging Dan Jones to pick up his third victory in a row. Brian Losen finished third, followed by Tory Reicks and Jason Schlangen.

Jeff Vsetecka, Jones and Bryan Webb got the heat wins and Andy Burke took home the "B" main victory.

Nate McIntire went from the last row to the front of the field in two laps in the 4-Cylinder Hornet class and was never challenged as he picked up his second win in a row. Ryan Einck finished second while Todd Einck, Garry Gulrid and Buzz Haackman rounded out the top five.

McIntire and Gulrud were the 4-Cylinder Hornet heat winners.

Brian Tank took over the top spot in the Stock Car "A" main from Don Rude at the halfway point and pulled away to pick up the win. Kevin Bidne, Troy Scholbrock, Rude and Mike Bergan finished second through fifth, respectively.

Scot Bauer, Rude and Brian Tank took home heat wins in the Stock Car class.

Rollovers were the name of the game in the Pure Stock "A" main. On the first lap, Chris Busch hit hard into the front stretch wall and ended up upside down. On the restart, Shawn Erickson tangled with a couple of cars on the front stretch and slammed into the inside wall, rolling his car. Luckily, both drivers were not seriously hurt.

After a single file re-start, Bob Praska picked up the win after the car that crossed the finish line in the first position was disqualified because of an illegal engine. Tony Miller was second, followed by Ron Rucker, Danin Balk and Brian Radloff.

Pure stock heat winners were Rucker and Travis Schissel.

Be sure to join us next week at the Cresco Speedway for Season Championship Night. See you there!
