Bell Rings Loudly At Lincoln IL Speedway
Strong Field Of Super Late Models Put On Fast Paced Show
LINCOLN, IL (April 22) - In Midwest Big Ten Super Late Model qualifying, Sheffield, IL driver Rich Bell bested a field of 22 wicked quick cars to set the fast lap of the night. Bell’s lap of 14.147 was about a tenth quicker than the lap of Bob Gardner. Brian Diveley, last year’s Big Ten champion, Ryan Unzicker, and Rick Salter rounded out the top five.
Super Late Model heat race action, which set the feature lineup, saw Bell, Gardner, and Diveley fend off strong challenges from behind to claim wins. At intermission, the top six scheduled starters came out for a redraw. Chuck Mitchell of Jacksonville, IL and Bell drew the one and two pills, slating them alongside one another for the feature event.
After a couple of failed starts for minor skirmishes, Mitchell raced out front with Daryn Klein in tow. Bell, who started second, fell to third but only briefly, as he moved back into the second spot on lap seven. Around the race’s midpoint, Unzicker joined the top two to make it a three car battle up front. As the trio caught some slower traffic, Mitchell went one way, while Bell went the other. For Bell, the move was right as he raced out front and into the lead. Mitchell fell to third, while Unzicker set his sights on the lead spot. As the laps wore down, the top three pulled out to a breakaway, but all within striking distance of one another. When the double checkered flew, it was Sheffield, IL driver Rich Bell taking the victory with Unzicker, Mitchell, Klein, and Gardner completing the top five. Others in the top ten included McKay Wenger, Brian Diveley, Kolby Vandebergh, Myles Moos, and Greg Kimmons. After the two early cautions at the beginning, the drivers finished with 24 straight laps of green flag racing, turning laps close to the 13 second bracket.
