The Skinny:  Majeski extends his point lead after Shafer and Johnson struggled at Marshfield.

 

Winning Quote: "I knew the 75 car (Chris Weinkauf) was going to be the car to beat and we were battling pretty hard early on in the race," Majeski said in victory lane.  "I knew if I could wear his stuff out a little bit, and it worked out to we got a lead and he couldn't close the gap at the end."

 

Winning Crew Chief: Toby Nuttleman

 

Winning Engine: B&B Engines

 

On the Move: Colin Reffner started 15th and finished sixth.

 

Biggest Loser: Derek Kraus was hoping for a strong night in front of a near hometown crowd, but struggled to finish 15th.

 

Notebook: 

Track doesn't have live timing/scoring, therefore no practice times are available.

Andrew Morrissey went off on the hook during the first practice session with mechanical issues.

Austin Nason had to go to a backup car after mechanical problems with his primary car.

Jason Weinkauf had an engine issue, they are back at the shop to get a back up car.

Matt Kocourek has elected to start at the tail of the field for the main event.  Inside row will move up.

Mid-Summer Showdown is green.

Ty Majeski gets his 19th win overall for the year and fifth of the season in the ARCA Midwest Tour.
