BIELONG TAKES HIGHLAND SPEEDWAY CHECEKRS

Brian Bielong Steve Schmitt Modified Winner

HIGHLAND, IL (May 5) — The Steve Schmitt Modifieds lined up for their feature event, the first three rows are determined by heat finishes and then the finish of the Dash establishes the final starting positions. While the first three rows held drivers that regularly race at the Highland Speedway, noticeably absent were several past Feature Winners and Track Champions as they were scattered within the balance of the field, setting up for an exciting race.

Darrell Hewlett from Breese IL led the field to the green flag of the 20 lap main event. It was outside pole sitter Tyler Diebert that led the field for the first 8 laps, on lap 9 Brian Bielong driving the Number 70 took the lead but a caution reverted the running order back to the last lap and Diebert was put back up front.

It didn’t take Bielong very long to overcome Diebert, as by the time the field returned to the starting line the number 70 was in the lead.

On lap 14 the caution once again waved and Bielong’s lead was had vanished. The restart lineup had Bielong on point followed by Diebert, and by then Mike Harrison, Aaron Kleine and Brett Cygan made their way to the front.

For the last 5 laps the battle was between Diebert and Harrison as Bielong checked out, Diebert put up a fight but Harrison managed to get around him to take second place. Diebert finished third Kleine fourth and Cygan fifth.
