Dells Raceway Park


Wisconsin Dells WI-West Salem’s Bentley Thompson brought home the Victory on the GNL Inex Bandoleros on Quality FreightRate Night at the Races. Bentley Thompson and Axel Oldenhoff brought a fierce field of youngsters to the line for their 15lap A Main. Much like their Legend counterparts the Bandos are a class that deals in pack racing racing 3 and 4 wide until it they break off into battles for position multiple cars got to lead Saturday night until it boiled down to a 4 way battle between Cohen Henze, Penn Sauter, Riley Smith and Jayden Johnson the top 4 raged into a great fight until there was contact between the leaders with 2 to go that triggered a massive crash off turn 4. All drivers were checked and ok however it left many cars too badly damaged to continue. On the restart Bentley Thompson who avoided the altercation would pull away from Ace Oldenhoff to claim the win. They were followed to the line by Axel Oldenhoff, Lincoln Johnson and Carter Stein. The heat races were won by Bentley Thompson and Derek Meyer. Penn Sauter was the fastest of 18 GNL Inex Bandoleros to take time with a lap of 16.760. The GNL Inex Bandoleros return to DRP July 29th on Kalahari Resort & Convention Centers Night.
