2009 Scott Bintz Racing Midwest Modified Summary
Heat Wins: 16 | Feature Wins: 4 | Top 5’s: 26 | Top 10’s: 11
9/6/09 Close to 40 Wissota Midwest Modified race cars showed up for the 2nd night of the Jamestown Speedways Double Header Labor Day Weekend Races. Scott was in the 3rd heat and it was somewhat of a rough caution filled heat. Scott made it to 4th from 7th to qualify for the feature in the 14th starting spot. The feature was dry but racey. Scott was moving up pretty good and got to about 5th when he hit the inside wall on corner 2 and spun. Got sent tail end and Scott made it back to 11th. Ryan Mikkelson won the feature followed by Josh Eberhardt and Landon Becker.
9/7/09 We headed on down for the Labor Day races at the Sheyenne River Speedway. It was tacky and fast in the heat. Scott made it up a few spots in the heat for the 12th starting position in the feature. Scott moved up pretty well in the feature and then slid into Rich Pavlicek on about lap 5. Scott got sent tail end and made it back to 8th. Dustin Strand won followed by Rich Pavlicek and Ryan Mikkelson.
9/13/09 We headed to the Tri-County Speedway in Wishek for their last race of the season. Scott got the early lead in the heat and held it for the heat win. The heat was super dry. For the feature, Scott drew the 4th starting spot. The feature was real dry as well and kind of a one lane track on the bottom. Scott made it up to 2nd and with a few laps to go tried to make the pass for the lead on the high side, but ended up finishing 3rd. Jim Morlock won the feature followed by a green # 14. (missed getting the racers name – will update later). For complete details and up to date results and stats, see the Detailed Racing Results page.
On 09/15/09 We are heading to the legendary Wissota 100 at the Dakota State Fair Speedway in Huron, SD. We have great hopes of making it into the main feature event for the Wissota Midwest Modified class. We have heard rumors that as many as 130 to 140 Midwest Modifieds will show up to race the event. With only 30 cars racing the main feature on Saturday we hope for a good draw for the heat race. The heat races will be composed of 10-12 cars with only the top 2 advancing to the feature. The Wissota 100 will be held from Sept 16th to 19th, 2009 with practice test and tune on Tuesday Sept 15th. All of the Wissota classes will be racing including Street Stocks, Midwest Modfieds, Mod 4’s, Modifieds, Super Stocks and Late Models.
