Shane Sabraski, the WISSOTA “Iron Man,” brought three cars to the Proctor Speedway Sunday night but could only come away with a hard fought victory in the WISSOTA Modified feature.
In other action, Scott Lawrence increased his point lead in defense of his track championship. Harry Hanson -- though leading the Late Model points at the speedway -- notched his first feature win of the season. And Danny Vang got back on track with the feature win in the Midwest Modifieds. There were 65 cars in competition.
