2020 Round 8 – Gravity Park Speedway

Kyle is King!

Chilton, WI - Kyle Raddant was crowned King of the DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour Summer Sizzler at Gravity Park Speedway making his first visit to Mueller's Sales & Service Victory Lane. Raddant started the 30-lap Summer Sizzler from the inside of row two, while Justin Reed and Taylor Scheffler led the field to the green flag. Raddant looked to the inside of Reed on the first lap, but Scheffler had the advantage on the top of the track, with Raddant securing second position in front of Reed. Scheffler started to pull away from Raddant and had started to approach the tail end of the field on lap seven.
Scheffler continued to lead the field with Raddant, Justin Ritchie and Justin Schmidt closing the distance. By lap seventeen, Raddant was just behind Scheffler as he worked the bottom of the track. Raddant looked to the inside of Scheffler on lap eighteen but couldn’t make it work. On the next lap, Raddant took the lead from Scheffler in turn four as they worked their way through the back of the field. With five laps to go, Raddant had a three car length lead on Scheffler, with Ritchie in third and a little space back to Schmidt in fourth. Raddant held on for his first DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour win, followed by Ritchie, Scheffler, Schmidt and Brett Swedberg. Lukas Postl finished sixth followed by Ron Berna, Reed, Aaron Wickersheim, and Justin Green.
