Jeff Holtz used his experience at the Slinger Super Speedway to help score his third win of the season at the Krebs Trucking 48 on the world’s fastest quarter mile oval. The win broke Lyle Nowak’s two race winning streak as well as keeping Holtz in the overall point lead.
Holtz survived a green, white, checkered finish in holding off Brad Keith for the win. “It’s tough passing on the outside,” said Holtz. “Once I could use the whole track it helped. Plus this car is a really good car, I’ve got to say. I raced the other car on the short tracks and I tore it up a little at Wausau, but we decided to bring this one here and got her going so I’m happy.”
Brian Holtz and Kenny Joosten led the field to the green with Joosten getting the early lead. Holtz would stay side by side for a few laps and even led lap before Joosten cleared for the lead on lap 5. Nowak and Ryan Gutknecht swapped third and fourth over the first few laps until Nowak cleared for third on lap 8.
