Late restart opens door for Bouche

first_imgBy Edward AnschutzSTURGEON BAY, Wis. (May 2) – Defending track champ Dave Bouche used a late restart to steal Saturday’s IMCA Sunoco Stock Car victory away from Billy LeMieux by inches at Thunderhill Raceway.LeMieux leapt from his front row starting spot to the lead early in the Stock Car headliner. Evan Madden hustled to the runner-up spot and began to put heavy pressure on LeMieux. At the midway point Madden worked the low groove, pulling even with the leader.LeMieux was able to keep his momentum up just enough to hold off Madden each lap. Madden encountered trouble in turn two, clipping the infield tire and causing his car to come to a halt, bringing out the caution with four laps remaining.Bouche used this to his advantage as the green flag few, diving under LeMieux. The duo raced door-to-door coming to the checkers with Bouche nipping LeMieux at the line by narrowest of margins.Rod Snellenberger was third, Jamie Suchocki fourth and Tony Bouche completed the top five. Dave Bouche was awarded an extra $200 for the win courtesy of Jet Finishing and Woodwork of Sturgeon Bay.Other feature winners included Eric Arneson in the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds, Chris Budzban in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportsMods and Dave Schmidt in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.last_img read more
