Craig Lager Takes the Checkered 7.2.16

Craig Lager of Union Grove scored his first ever sprint car victory in the 20-lap Meyer Valves and Vacs Wingless Sprint Series presented by the IRA feature. "This is awesome," said Lager, a longtime veteran of open wheel racing at Wilmot who competed and won in the old-style MRA-type modifieds back in the 1980s. "This is the first sprint car feature I've ever won. I have to thank my family, crew, everyone who has been behind me. It was good clean racing with Mike (Sullivan). I was just going to come out here once in a while for fun, but I never expected this."
For Lager, whose last feature win of any kind in his 30-plus year career came an estimated three decades ago, he had his hands full from first-year sprint car driver Sullivan as the two pulled away. At the finish it was Lager with Sullivan of Burlington a close runner-up. Chris Klemko of Bristol was third, Todd Lehr of Genoa City fourth and Doug Schenck of Cottage Grove fifth.
