Tres Mehler Victorius At LPS Saturday Night In The Lentz Paving Indiana RaceSavers

On a great weather evening at LPS 19 entries came to do battle in the Lentz Paving Indiana RaceSavers IMCA group. The 3 qualifying groups were led by Dillan Baldwin, Jeff Wimmenauer and Ethan Barrow. The heat race spin for the invert was a 2. Riverway Plumbing Heat race 1 winner was Jordan Welch from the pole taking it over Dillan Baldwin, Chris Miller and Roman Gephart. Riverway Plumbing Heat race 2 winner went to Jeff Wimmenauer over Tres Mehler, John Paynter JR. and Justin Matthews. The final Riverway Plumbing Heat race 3 winner went to Ethan Barrow over Levi Hinck, Matt Mcdonald and Keith Langley. This would setup the 20 lap A main and gremlins would set in for a lot of the front runners. The spin for the feature was a 3 so Ethan and Jeff would be the front row of the A main. Ethan Barrow looked very strong early and looked to keep the 2023 streak of being undefeated at LPS going. Jeff Wimmenauer and Jordan Welch were very fast early also but unfortunately they both had problems and would have to pull off ending their good runs. Ethan would look really strong at the halfway point and lapped traffic was starting to lineup in front of him but he had an 8 car length lead over 2nd place. The gremlins hit again and Ethan with about 5 laps to go would pull off also with a problem ending his good run. This gave Tres Mehler the lead after starting 5th in the feature and the final laps he would have a good battle with Dillan Baldwin for the win. Tres Mehler would pick up the Brawley Group Feature win over Dillan Baldwin, John Paynter JR., Roman Gephart and Levi Hinck. The Bridlewood Consulting Hard Charger for the night went to Levi Winget. Thanks to all the Lentz Paving Indiana Racesavers for putting on a great show at LPS.
