The NASCAR Whelen Racing Series late models, modifieds, street stocks and compacts were also in action. The late model division has became a one man show as New Carlisle's Dick Dunlevy Jr. has dominated the class. He announced earlier in the year this would be his final season of racing after over 40 years of competing on local ovals. He made winning the 2012 track crown his goal, and so far no one has been able to slow him down. He set fast time, won the dash and the feature. The win was the sixth of the season for Dunlevy in the Ed and Joann Simpson stocker sponsored by the Ohio Pain Clinic. Bobby Justus, Bob Sibila Jr., Chad Pendelton and Terry Scherz rounded out the top five. Tony Brunke was the winner of the heat race.
In modified action Bill Burba posted his third win of the season. The Germantown resident powered his way past early leader Jamie Sites and never looked back in his West Chester Permits backed racer. Mike Carroll was second with fast qualifier Brad Williams third, Ryan Fleming fourth and Daryl McKay fifth. Fleming carried the checker for the dash, with Williams posting the heat win.
The street stocks took to the oval next. Jamie Sites of New Carlisle jumped out front early in his family owned Camaro. Sites, with his The Racing Place Indoor Karting sponsored racer set his sights on the checker. It looked to be an easy win, but fast qualifier Joe Hensel tried to rain on Sites parade. Hensel could only watch however as Sites took the checker after closing to his rear bumper on the last lap. Travis Diggs, Tyler Mahaffey and Josh Longstreth rounded out the top five. David Stump picked up the dash win, while Rodney Kreusch won the heat.
The 20 lap compact feature once again saw Riverside's Bo Hoelscher posing for victory lane photos at the end of the 20 lap feature. It marked another great night for Hoelscher as he also set fast time and won the dash. Hoelscher was behind the wheel of his fathers CS and SS LLC backed Honda. Amber Sites was second followed by Steve Barnhart, Nick Barrett and Ryan Barrett. This Friday KilKare will host a full program of late model, modifieds, street stocks and compacts. Racing is set to start at 8.
