#7 Modified Feature Winner Rookie Clay Money
Daniel Gottschalk of Ellis and Russell’s Jakob Schwein made it two in a row in their respective divisions in racing action at RPM Speedway in Hays, KS, Saturday evening, April 23.
Gottschalk made it two in a row in the Golden B Hydra Drilling IMCA Sport Mod feature. First heat winner Brenden Damon took the early lead and appeared to have the race well in hand, but car problems sent him to the infield on lap 8, handing over the lead to Blaine Walt. Walt’s lead was shortlived as Brian Davidson took the lead at the halfway mark of the 20-lap race. A caution on lap 15 put 11th starting Gottschalk behind Davidson on the restart, and Gottschalk, who won Friday night at Oberlin, took advantage as he took the lead on the restart and held on for the win. Walt finished second, followed by 17th starting Tracy Holloway, Trenton Kleweno and Dakota Sproul. Pat Bedore and Brian Fink also won heat races.
