Jake Redetzke made a rare appearance Friday night at the AMSOIL Speedway and surprised the Late Model field tracking down race-long leader Zach Wohlers to snatch the win.

In other action, Andy Davey held off Nick Oreskovich in the Super Stock main event, a race that was completed without any caution flags; Mack Estey finally beat older brother Skeeter to win his first Midwest Modified feature at the speedway; and Kelly Estey put on a late charge and put himself in position to grab the Modified feature win from Destin Lorimor, who had led from the start.

A season-high 99 cars were in competition and qualifying heats were won by Harry Hanson and Zach Wohlers in the late models; Matt Leer, Deven VanHouse and Destin Lorimor in the modifieds; Willie Johnsen Jr.; Dave Flynn and Andy Davey in the super stocks; Skeeter Estey, Joe Chaplin and Dan Kingsley in the Midwest Modifieds; and Josh Loucks, Lucas Carlson and Ryan Savoy in the pure stocks.

LUGNUTS: In the modified main event, Superior’s Al Uotinen finished in a disappointing 14th place but his consecutive laps completed number increased to 870 or the equivalent of 42 feature races. … The 15-lap pure stock feature and the result was the same as it has been every race this season as Dustin Follett once again bested a 19-car field and remained undefeated in feature action. It was Follett's fourth consecutive feature win at the speedway. However, a protest of the winner's car was filed and the feature finish is unofficial at this point.
