(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 26, 2022 - It was a night filled with firsts at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Friday, Aug. 26 as veteran Milwaukee racer Turk Letizia notched his first career WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour A-main victory on his home track, two-time track champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh moved into sole possession of first place on the all-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory list and Eric Blumer of Sun Prairie captured the first-ever Wisconsin Legends Racing Dirt Series A main contested at The Plymouth Dirt Track to highlight a full five-division racing program. In other main event action, Elijah Koenig of Beaver Dam pocketed $1,700 for taking the victory 25-lap Next Step Insurance A main featuring an increased payout courtesy of Thomas Ott and Travis Schmidt Racing, while 2019 PDTR Grand National champion Tyler Kulow of Plymouth claimed the victory in the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National A main. After lining up on the outside of the front row, A main, Turk Letizia outpowered polesitter Justin Ritchie of New London to lead the opening lap of the 30-lap WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour A main. As Letizia went about setting a blistering pace at the front the field on the lightning fast, yet treacherous track surface, fifth starter Taylor Scheffler of Waukesha worked his way into third on lap 5, while perennial Dirt Kings champion and current points leader Nick Anvelink of Navarino moved up from his fifth starting spot to take fourth on lap 7. On lap 10, the first of six caution flags was displayed when Ron Berna of Abrams spun along the front stretch. The restart produced an incident in turn two involving Brett Swedberg of Shawano and Justin Green of Sheboygan Falls to bring out the second caution period. After switching to single-file restarts for the remainder of the race, Scheffler bolted in to sweep past Ritchie into second on lap 11 before the third caution flag was displayed when four-time PDTR Late Model champ Brad Mueller of Random Lake stopped in turn one on lap 12. On lap 15, Scheffler ducked low to pull even with Letizia for the lead. However, Letizia fended off Scheffler's challenge to retain the top spot, as Anvelink worked around Ritchie along the high groove to take over third. Two more caution flags came out on lap 20 when five-time track champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland spun in turn three after contact with Sawyer Specht of Sheboygan Falls in turn three and when Bill Edler of Howards slowed along the backstretch on lap 21. After the restart, Scheffler surged ahead of Letizia along the low line on lap 23. However, the move was erased when the sixth and final caution flag of the race was displayed later in the lap when Lukas Postl of Shawano spun in turn four. On the restart, Letizia maintained the top spot and pulled away from Scheffler, while ninth starter Charlie Schmidt of Oostburg flexed his muscle to move into fourth on lap 24. On the final circuit, Anvelink surged past Scheffler into second. However, Letizia could not be headed as he went on to post his first career Dirt Kings Late Model tour A-main victory and his fifth career PDTR Late Model A-main triumph in his new No. 24 car, which features a throwback tribute design in memory of his late father "Diamond" Jim Letizia. Anvelink was second, Scheffler took third, Schmidt wound up fourth and Ritchie rounded out the top five. "I saw Taylor there a few times, but thankfully the car held on and I held on to get this victory," Letizia said. "I've been trying to win one of these Dirt Kings races since 2017 and it feels good to finally get one. It was a great race. I'm so proud to put this car in victory lane with this car in my dad's memory.' In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car A main, 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett grabbed the lead on the opening lap from the pole position as outside front row starter Brandon McMullen settled into second. By lap 6, the leaders caught the rear of the field and began to weave their way through lapped traffic. On lap 8, McMullen worked lapped traffic to his advantage to bolt underneath Fassbender, who was held up behind a slower car, exiting turn two. Once again, McMullen set a blistering pace was he skillfully maneuvered his way through thick lapped traffic throughout the remainder of the race, even going three-wide to pass a group of slower cars on one occasion. As the laps wound down, McMullen built up a full-straightaway lead over Fassbender en route to his second straight PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main to vault into sole possession of first place on the all-time PDTR 360 Sprint A-main victory list with his 26th career A-main triumph at The Plymouth Dirt Track. The win was also McMullen's 36th career A-main victory in Midwest Sprint Car Association competition. Fassbender placed second, fourth starter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum came home third, third starter Tim Haddy of Waupun placed fourth and defending PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan charged from the 14th starting spot to place fifth in the caution-free race. Outside front row starter Nick Schultz of Beaver Dam led the opening lap of 25-lap B Mod A main as fourth starter Elijah Koenig bolted into second from his fourth starting spot. On lap 4, 2022 PDTR B Mod champion Andy Welter of Hartford, who started sixth, used a low move to pass third starter Geoff Jeche of Juneau. On lap 10, Koenig moved in to challenge Schultz for the top spot along the cushion as Welter slipped past Schultz to take second. The lone caution flag appeared on lap 22 when Jason Schilling of Milwaukee stopped along the backstretch. When the race resumed, Welter was pushing hard to pressure Koenig for the big-money victory when he spun in turn two on the second -to -last lap. Koenig held on over the final circuit to collect his third career PDTR B Mod victory, which was worth a healthy payout of $1,700. Schultz placed second, Jeche took third, two-time PDTR B Mod champion Tim Warner of Malone took fourth after starting ninth and eighth starter Travis Schmidt of Waldo wound up fifth. In the 20-lap Wisconsin Legends Racing Dirt Series A main, polesitter Hunter Cardinal of Richfield led the opening two laps before spinning in turn two and collecting eighth starter Parker Jones to bring out the lone caution flag of the race on lap 3. Eric Blumer, who started sixth, inherited the lead on the restart while Mike Mueller of Waupun, who started third, and Hayden Schmuhl of Beaver Dam, who started fifth, dueled side by side for second with Schmuhl taking the spot on lap 7. On lap 9, Schmuhl got sideways in turn two, which allowed 12th starter Austin Winkel of Sheboygan Falls and Hartland's Jordan Miklas, who started 13th, to sneak by before engaging in a heated duel for the runner-up spot. Miklas finally surged past Winkel into second on lap 12, while Jones charged into third on lap 17, after restarting at the rear of the field on lap 3. Blumer cruised over the final three laps to score the victory in the first Wisconsin Legends Dirt Racing Series A-main ever contested at The Plymouth Dirt Track. Miklas finished second, Jones placed third, Michael Weber of Marion, Iowa, who started ninth, finished fourth and seventh starter Ryan Sullivan of Waupun placed fifth. Outside front row starter Tyler Kulow grabbed the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main with polesttier Steven Weber of Plymouth following in second before fourth starter Chad Espen of West Bend swept past Weber to assume the second spot on lap 6. The first of four caution flags flew on lap 7 when Scott Kafka of Kiel spun in turn two. Following the restart, Espen moved in to challenge Kulow for the lead with 2022 PDTR Grand National champion Luke Scholten of Oostburg, who started third, trailing in third on lap 10. Three laps later, Scholten spun in turn four to bring out the second caution flag. One lap later, Kafka spun again along the backstretch to prompt the third caution flag of the race. When the race resumed, sixth starter Nick Schumacher of Eagle made his presence felt as he rode the high groove to challenge the low-riding Espen for second place starting on lap 15. The fourth and final caution flag was then displayed on lap 18 when Scholten spun in turn two. Schumacher again worked the high groove on the restart and briefly pulled even with Kulow over the final two laps. However, Kulow proved to be too strong as he rolled to his 12th career PDTR Grand National A-main victory. Schumacher had to settle for second, Espen placed third, 2018 PDTR Grand National champ Matt Loehr of Dotyville finished fourth after starting eighth and Weber rounded out the top five. Colton See of Chilton won the 12-lap B Mod B main. Lance Fassbender earned PDTR 360 Sprint Car overall fast qualifier honors with a lap of 12.542 seconds.
