Vulcan's Kelly Wins Norway Speedway Late Model MainIssue Date: July 22, 2020
Vulcan's Kris Kelly had only raced one night up until
tonight's action at Norway Speedway Friday night.
The former Stateline Challenge winner appeared not to miss a beat. The second-generation late model driver scored fast time and grabbed the lead on lap 17 and went on to collect the late model feature at Norway Speedway Friday night.
Kelly started 11th on the grid and bided his time through some early cautions, a pair of which took out the top two point leaders heading into the night, Ryan Hood and Dan Lindsley.
Kelly passed Robby Iverson for the lead near the halfway point and cruised to victory. Iverson took second, followed by Kingsford veteran Bruce White who posted his best finish of the year in third. Cory Cootware and Jason Wells placed fourth and fifth, respectively.
Vulcan's Adam Faull also sweated out several caution periods to capture the super stock feature.
The other three divisions for the night went green-to-checkers without a yellow. Winners were Marion, Wisconsin's B.J. Schoneck in a photo finish win againt Spread Eagle, Wisconsin's Todd Schmidt in the stock car class. Kingsford's Brent Barglind and Wausau, Wisconsin's Eric Breitenfeldt scored a full straightaway win in the stock fours.
Next Friday night, July 24 will be Thirsty Whale fan appreciation night. Racing gets underway at 7 p.m. Please check our website norwayspeedway.com and at our page on Facebook for further information or email email@example.com.
