Nick is KING!

Nick Anvelink powered to his fourth win of the 2018 DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour season at the Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway. Avenlink started the 25-lap Mid-Summer Showdown from fourth position, as Jim Schmidt and Brett Swedberg led the field to the green flag. Swedberg had the advantage on the first lap over Schmidt as the two cars raced side-by-side coming out of turn two. Swedberg held the lead as Anvelink worked outside of Schmidt for second position on lap three. Anvelink grabbed the top spot just one lap later as he battled with Swedberg for position at the line.

By lap eight, cars were spread out around the Horsepower Half-Mile, allowing Anvelink to catch the end of the field and begin lapping. The lapped traffic allowed Anvelink to pull away from Swedberg, Schmidt and Jared Siefert.

Caution slowed the field just past halfway, for Joe Reuter, who had stopped on the track in turn four. On the restart, Anvelink jumped out to the lead as Siefert passed Swedberg for second position and tried to make a run on Anvelink.

Anvelink was able to hold off Siefert for the win. Swedberg finished third, followed by Schmidt, Justin Schmidt, Mark Rose, Tim Buhler, Troy Springborn, Chris Engels and Ron Stroika.

The Stockbridge Engineering Touring Kings were all in attendance for the Mid-Summer Showdown. Anvelink took the win with Siefert in second, Swedberg finished third, Schmidt was fourth, Justin Schmidt finished fifth. Buhler finished seventh, Troy Springborn was eighth, Chris Engels finished ninth, Diamond Jim Letizia finished fifteenth, and Ron Berna finished seventeenth.
