BERGAKKER CONTINUES FLAT ROCK HOT STREAK WITH 150 VICTORY
Brian Bergakker took the lead on lap 77 and sped on to win the Moran Chevrolet/Stan Yee Memorial 150 presented by DTS Drive Train Specialists for the ARCA Moran Chevrolet Outlaw Super Late Models Saturday night at Flat Rock Speedway. The win was Brian’s third in a row in this event.
All the teams worked tremendously with track officials to complete the event as storms approached and hit the track 20 minutes after the Figure 8 feature ended.
Bergakker, along with a few other drivers, were overcome with heat exhaustion brought on by the humid conditions during the 150-lap contest. Pat Moran of Moran Automotive Group and Ann Yee, Stan’s widow, presented Brian with the trophy in the Monroe Asphalt Winner’s Circle.
Berggaker also set fast time (11:680), with 16 cars in the 20-car field in the 11-second bracket. With the 12-car inversion, Harold Fair Jr. and Eric Lee brought the field to the green. Fair Jr. zipped out front and built up a solid lead over the rest of the pack in the early going. His advantage was wiped out with a yellow flag on lap 32, and on the restart, Lee took the top spot. Fair battled back and regained the point on lap 36. Fair Jr. again had a good margin over Lee, while Steve Cronenwett Jr. and Justin Schroeder began their march to the front of the pack. Cronenwett’s fine run ended on lap 60 with a broken belt. Fair Jr. exited with mechanical issues while running second on lap 71. Lee, who took the lead again on lap 65, now had the company of Schroeder, Craig Everage, Conner Zbozien and Bergakker.
The second half of the event ran with only a couple of yellow flags. Bergakker began his charge to the front and took the number 1 spot on lap 77. Schroeder gained a bit of ground on the the leader, but pitted with a flat tire as he stopped on the track to bring out the yellow. Bergakker took off again on the restart and kept his lead as the race neared the finish. The win was his second of the season at Flat Rock and third in a row in this event.
Zbozien used the second groove to get by Everage in the closing laps to finish with a strong second, Everage was third, Hayden Sprague fourth and Stan Yee Jr. fifth. Lee, Frank Jiovani, Paul Pelletier, Mike Root and Dennis Rederstorf were next in line to round out the top 10.
The 25 lap ARCA Figure 8 feature went to Jeremy Vanderhoof as he topped Dennis Whisman Jr., Greg Studt, Jakob Lee, Eugene Worden, Brice Thomsen, Dave Lambert, Stephanie Bradley, Billy Earley and Carole Asztalos. Vanderhoof tangled with Thomsen at the intersection on lap 9, sending Jeremy spinning down the track, into the infield grass and continuing on despite the contact. The red flag for debris on the track stopped the action. On the restart, Vanderhoof continued in control on his way to his first win of 2021. Earley set quick time at 20:867. Billy dropped out with mechanical issues while running up front in the closing laps of the event.
Fans can walk onto the track and meet all the drivers this Saturday, July 31 for Autograph Night! The ARCA Moran Chevrolet Late Models, Figure 8’s and DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stocks will all be in action.
The pit gates open at 2:30, practice will begin at 4:15, the on-track autograph session is at 6 p.m. and racing gets the green flag at 7 p.m. There is no advance ticket sale for this event. Tickets will go on sale at the track on race day at 4:15 when the ticket office and front gates open for the night.

Limaland Motorsports Park to offer “Mr. Excitement” bonus, thanks to Indian Lake Sports Park
When Limaland Motorsports Park opens the gates on Friday July 30th, the competitors will have an even more “exciting” reason to compete for, thanks to Indian Lake Sports Park. The Indian Lake Sports Park, owned by the Kaser family, has offered up the “Mr. Excitement” Bonus, honoring the memory of “Mr. Excitement” Tim Allison.
The bonus will consist of a possible $1,100 reward, inspired by the #11 Sprint Car piloted by Allison. The polesitter of each of all 4 A Mains on Friday night will be offered the opportunity to race for the bonus by giving up the No. 1 starting position, and attempting to come from the tail to win the event. If they are successful, the driver would not only win the regular prize money, they would also receive $1,100 from Indian Lake Sports Park. If the polesitter turns down the offer, then the driver scheduled to start on the outside front row would be offered the same opportunity.
While Tim Allison was primarily a sprint car driver, he was a fixture at Limaland and an inspiration to many drivers in all classes. Indian Lake Sports Park recognizes this, and is pleased to offer this bonus to all 4 divisions racing this Friday night, including the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders, the Non Wing Sprint Cars, the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds, and the Budweiser Thunderstocks.
This is added on to an already thrilling event, which includes Family Fun Night with bounce houses and fun for the whole family, the addition of the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders, and the final night of points racing for the 2021 season at Limaland Motorsports Park
Pit gates and Bounce Houses open at 4PM, Grandstands open at 5PM, Hot laps at 6:30PM, and Racing at 7:30PM
General Admission for ages 16 and older is $12, ages 11-15 is $6, and kids 10 and under are admitted FREE. Pit passes for all ages are $30
