2009 Scott Bintz Racing Midwest Modified Summary
Heat Wins: 14 | Feature Wins: 4 | Top 5’s: 24 | Top 10’s: 9
On Wednesday August 26th, we headed to the Sheyenne River Speedway for their county fair special with both Wissota Midwest Modified and Wissota A-Mods. Scott started 3rd row inside in the heat and moved up about a car per lap. He almost got the heat win but drove it in a little low on the last lap. Then there was a last corner caution thrown. For the feature, Scott got jammed up a bit and dropped back a few spots on the start. He started moving up and got into 2nd. He wasn’t ever able to reel in the leader too much. Scott got close a few times but not enough to make a good run for the lead. He did get a few chances to try for the lead on the re-starts, but the leader was pretty smooth towards the end of the race. Scott Finished 2nd. Randy Klein was the feature winner.
On Friday we headed to the River Cities Speedway. On the trip, we picked up Chad Bolte in Fargo, ND for his first “in the pits” experience. There were about 30 Midwest Modified at the event. For the heat race, Scott spun out of the first corner of the heat and was sent tail end. He was able to make it back to 4th. For the feature, it was dry slick and Scott moved up pretty good making it up to 6th. With 4 laps to go, he spun out going into corner one trying to make a double pass in between to other race cars. With only 4 laps to go, he was sent tail end and made it back to 13th. Aaron Olson was the feature winner followed by Dustin Strand.
On Saturday, we headed back to the Jamestown Speedway for the season championship. There were as usual over 30 Wissota Midwest Modifieds at the event. The heat was fast and tracky. Scott got up to battling for 2nd, but finished 3rd. Scott was really hooked up in the feature and got 2 great starts and was in 3rd coming out of corner 2 twice, but both were called back due to cautions. Once the feature race got going, Scott made it up to 4th and was racing hard for 3rd. Got passed at the end and finished 5th. Dustin Strand won followed by Taylor Weight and Zach Naastad. The Track Champion for the Midwest Modified for 2009 was Dustin Strand, followed by Josh Eberhardt and Ryan Mikkelson. Scott Bintz was 4th in points.
