Hometown Favorite Crowned in Dirt Kings Season Opener

Fountain City, WI – In front of a packed house at Mississippi Thunder Speedway, hometown favorite, Jake Timm, returned to Mueller’s Sales & Service Victory Lane and was crowned King of the Rumble of the River 40, the season opener for the 2020 DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour. Timm visited Mueller’s Sales & Service Victory Lane last season when the Tour visited Mississippi Thunder Speedway.

 

Chad Madher and Brett Swedberg led the field to the green flag of the Rumble by the River 40, with 47 drivers competing for the 26-car starting field. Timm started the 40-lap A-Main from the fifth position, challenging Swedberg for the lead on lap five. Caution slowed the field that same lap, with Swedberg leading the field to the green flag. Madher battled with Swedberg for the lead, with Madher prevailing on the high side on lap eight.

 

Madher continued to lead the field until he suffered mechanical failure and Timm assumed the lead with eight laps remaining. Timm went on to win his second DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model race, with Jesse Glenz in second, followed by Swedberg, Dustin Sorensen, and Jeremiah Hurst.
