The Super Late Model Alive for 5 Series came back to Dells Raceway Park on a beautiful Saturday night for the Capital 100 and the fans were treated to an epic battle to the end between NASCAR Camping World Truck series driver Ty Majeski and reigning Alive for 5 series champion Dalton Zehr. Jeff Storm and Casey Johnson would bring the 24 car starting field to the green with Johnson claiming the top spot early. Ty Majeski did not waste any time running down Johnson and took the lead inside the 10 lap mark. By lap 25 Zehr had made his way thru the field from his tenth starting spot and positioned himself into second. As the race clicked off laps with Majeski leading and Zehr in second followed by Johnson, Gabe Sommers and Andrew Morrissey the caution would fly once again regrouping the field into a side by side shootout with Zehr on the outside & Majeski electing the bottom as they took the green with three laps to go & it was Zehr gaining the edge until Ty spun Dalton coming off turn four. Majeski took the blame for the incident and “tapped out” allowing Zehr the point and Majeski to the rear of the field, setting up yet again another double file restart with Gabe Sommers now side by side with Zehr, but in the end it was Zehr holding off Sommers for the win. Earlier in the night Dalton also won the fast dash after passing Travis Sauter in the final laps.
Next up for Gildan Racing is the Dixieland 250 on Tuesday, August 4th which pays $10,000 to win. NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Busch along with drivers from all across the country will be competing against Gildan Racing for the top position.
