Alex Donnert Overcomes to Win!

August 3, 2013 – The 30 Lap Feature Event started 15 cars for the Drive Train Specialists Modifieds. Larry Wallace would post the fastest time for the field and start 8th for the feature. Claude Plante Jr took the lead for the first 6 laps and led using the high line as Alex Donnert tried to pass him on the bottom. The only caution of the race came out on Lap # 6 and Alex Donnert made the Owosso Option, double-file restart work to his advantage. Plante raced hard to keep his second position while Donnert drove away from the field. Jordan Pruitt, who started 11th, got by Plante on Lap # 18 for the second spot but did not have enough laps to make up the distance. Larry Wallace would finish 3rd and last week’s Feature Winner, John King, would come home 4th. Laci Donnert rounded out the top 5 and retains just a 7 point lead over his son Alex, in the standings. At the post race interview Donnert explained that he had broken the car during practice and then had to load it up and take it home for repairs. He made it back to the track just in time for qualifying!
