Special to The Review

PLYMOUTH – Beautiful weather welcomed drivers and spectators Saturday night at the Plymouth Dirt Track.

Past champions were introduced during intermission. Badger Land Vintage Racers also ran with Plymouth Dirt Track Racing, bringing back lots of great memories.

The Sprints pushed off with Andrew Westphal (Fond du Lac) and Brandon McMullan (Plymouth) setting the pace. Drivers got bunched up on the start and Donny Goeden (Kewaskum) came to a rest on the backstretch. A caution waved for Goeden with a flat tire.

McMullen lined up first on the restart. Lance Fassbender (Burnett) snuck past Westphal for second. Jason Johnson (Campbellsport) looked to pass Jim Melis (Glenbeulah) for seventh.

McMullen raced up to lapped traffic and maneuvered through it smoothly. A yellow flew for debris in turn four. McMullen started out front and held onto the lead with a hardcharging Fassbender.

Another quick yellow flew for Johnson who slowed on the high side. McMullen had another great restart until an immediate red flew for three cars coming together and Justin Miller (Plymouth) going up and over.

McMullen held the top spot as Tim Haddy (Waupun) split the cars behind and worked his way up to fourth. Ryan Mayr (New Hostein) did a 360, bringing out another quick caution.

Goeden maneuvered high and low in his search for the leader. McMullen was up to lapped traffic. Danny Schlaffer (Sussex) went outside Brabant for fifth. McMullen drove into side-by-side lapped traffic and Fassbender attempted to use lapped traffic to pass McMullen.

Coming to the checkers, Fassbender made one last attempt but finished second to McMullen. Haddy finished third.

The other feature winners included Matt Loehr of Mount Calvary in Grand National; Colton Van Hierden, Oshkosh, B-Modified; and Chris Carlson, Union Grove, Late Model.
