Tomah, WI (9/7/2014)- Jim Sauter, Jr. of Tomah, WI started in the ninth spot Saturday night in the 100-lap main event at Marshfield Motor Speedway in Marshfield, WI. In no time at all he jumped into the race lead and then burned up the right rear tire en route to a fifth place finish, which is his best of the season thus far.
Sauter timed fourth quickest to start off the evening. He began the feature in ninth and then raced into the lead, which is the spot that he held at the halfway break.
Knowing that he might have used up his tires a little early on, Sauter remained confident for the second half of the race but did lose the lead and then fell back to fifth, which is where he finished.
“I’m proud of my guys and my wife, Katie”, noted Sauter. “I couldn’t do this without them and of course all my fine sponsors, which include Don’s Auto Truck Center, Davis Auto Sales, Sauter Floor Covering, Gawronski Signs, Dean’s Satellite and Security, Global Cleaning Service, Shawn Rentmeester Trucking, Sheer Bliss Indoor Beach, Next Generation Tattoo, Wounded Warrior Project, Highline Motorsports and Tyler Jett Motorsports Marketing.
“We had a great car but I just burned off the right rear- I’ll just have to buy myself a trophy”, he said jokingly.
The next events for Jim Sauter, Jr. are straight ahead, on Friday and Saturday, September 12th and 13th respectively, at Marshfield Motor Speedway.
