Racing Update for the Weekend of August 7th

2009 Scott Bintz Racing Midwest Modified Summary
Heat Wins: 11 | Feature Wins: 4 | Top 5’s: 20 | Top 10’s: 8

We planned to race the Tri-County Speedway in Wishek on Friday, then Jamestown on Saturday and a trip up to Bottineau on Sunday.  However, the weather changed our plans a bit.  On Friday afternoon right about the time Scott finished changing gears for Tri-County, we got the word it was cancelled due to rain.  We decided to head to Fargo to be fans for the night and watch the races there.  It was a fast track with alot of action.  On Saturday, Jamestown got rained out so we went to the Movie GI Joe with the kids.

On Sunday August 9th we head up to Bottineau to race.  14 Wissota Midwest Modifeds showed up for the season championship at the Thunder Mountain Speedway in Bottineau, ND. It was Scott first time this year at the track.  The track staff, fans and racers were very friendly and provided a great night of racing. Scott started outside pole of the first heat. He got the lead on the first lap and won by about a 1/2 track after a 10 lap heat. For the trophy dash, Scott started 6th and finished 3rd.  Brent Perleberg won the trophy dash. For the feature, Scott started on pole and got the early lead and held it for all 20 laps. The track was turning into dry slick as the race went on. There were a number of cautions and Scott was able to hang onto the lead his 4th feature win of the Season.  Brent Perleberg finished 2nd followed by Jeff Hooker.  Jim Morlock won the Season Championship for the track.

We stayed over night at Lake Metigoshe located in the Turtle Mountains about 5 miles from Bottineau.  What a beautiful place to camp.
