Mid-American Sprint Series Completes Round Two in Dousman, WI

The Mid-American Sprint Series presented by Bridgestone and fueled by Sunoco completed it’s second race weekend of the 2015 season on May 16th and 17th.  Round 2, held at Briggs and Stratton Raceway Park in Dousman, Wisconsin proved to be a strong event once again with entries nearing record numbers.

Saturday racing was greeted with morning rain showers that turned to warm, humid conditions and lots of sunshine in the afternoon.  Mechanical failures were a trend for the day for race leaders.  Walter Lehnhoff was leading in the Yamaha Masters pre-final when he lost his side pod; giving the lead to George Houle.  Lehnhoff came back in the final to capture the win.  Brandon Lemke was also leading when he lost his side pod in the Yamaha Junior feature.  Mark Vielgut was leading the TaG Senior final when his throttle broke with less than 1 lap to go; handing the lead over to Bryce Engelhart.

On Sunday, race officials were concerned with a strong threat of severe weather in the afternoon.  The day was kept to a strict schedule and all races were completed in full, in the dry, with the severe weather just missing the area.  Racing was as electric as the local weather with many hard fought battles and positions decided within the few last laps.
