(Jefferson, WI – June 21, 2014) Lyle Nowak made the right move at the right time en route to his first Mid-American Stock Car Series win of the season, as the circuit returned to Wisconsin’s Action Track, the Jefferson Speedway Saturday night.

Multiple story lines and a nice helping of drama kept fans guessing throughout the course of the 50 lap headliner, the 5th stop on the 2014 tour.

First to shine in the spotlight was pole sitter Rick Tackman, JR, who took command early from front row mate Greg Beebe. Tackman quickly established a steady rhythm at the point, leading Beebe and Erik Pierce on a slight break-away from the rest of the field.

But wasting little time on a forward march was defending champion Brad Keith. After a top three qualifying effort, and a solid heat finish, Keith appeared poised to continue his momentum from his best run of the year two weeks prior at the Milwaukee Mile.

When a baseball player is on a hot hitting streak, they say he’s “seeing the ball well”. If the Mid-American Stock Car Series was a baseball league instead of a racing circuit, that clever little catch phase would no doubt apply to its current point leader - Jeff Holtz.

The Franksville, WI veteran will be the man everyone will be shooting for this Saturday night as round five of the series’ 2014 season takes it to Wisconsin’s Action Track - the tricky confines of Jefferson Speedway in Jefferson, WI.

Dan Gilster and Jeff HoltzHoltzDan Gilster and Jeff HoltzHoltzMuch like that baseball player who is able to connect on whatever the pitcher flings toward the plate - whether it be a fastball, slider or curve - Holtz has been hitting the ball hard on a variety of racing tracks. He is a perfect 4 for 4 in the top five finishes, including wins on the tight high-banking of the 1/4 mile at Rockford Speedway and the fast sweepers and long straights of the Milwaukee Mile. Toss in good finishes at the ½ miles - a 5th place run at Grundy and a podium 3rd at Wisconsin International Raceway - and it’s easy to see why the 38 team has emerged as an early season title favorite.

It may not have come from a high school geometry class, but somewhere along the line Jeff Holtz learned the fastest way around an oval is to run the tightest circumference you possibly can.

That little tidbit of knowledge, coupled with a race car to match, helped propel the Franksville, WI veteran to the Mid-American Stock Series feature win at the famed Milwaukee Mile Saturday afternoon.

The series made its annual visit to the state’s biggest racing stage as part of the annual ARCAFest celebration, and proved to be the perfect setting for a memorable performance by Holtz.
