Eder tames Advantage RV Mod Tour field

Jerry O’Brien

Point leader Kevin Eder of Ashland increased his lead in the Advantage RV Modified Tour by winning Friday night’s event at AMSOIL Speedway in Superior.

Eder earned the pole position in qualifying and led for more than half of the 40-lap event to win his second consecutive event. Neil Balduc of Bessemer, Mich., was runner-up.

Complementing the Mod Tour were the WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds and the WISSOTA Pure Stocks. Twenty-four Midwest Mods and 20 Pure Stocks were on hand to swell the car count to 72 for the evening.

George Dalbeck of Wakefield, Mich., took first in the Midwest Modifieds 20-lap feature; Justin Weinberger of Park Falls, Wis., claimed the 15-lap Pure Stock victory.

Weinberger was originally stripped of his win for a part judged to be outside the rules in post-race inspection. But the ruling was eventually overturned and the win was restored.

In the winner’s interview, Dalbeck mentioned that this was his first brand new race car which had a total of 10 laps on it prior to Friday’s action.

Eder drew the pole position next to Neil Balduc on his way to winning his second consecutive Advantage RV Modified Tour victory.

He has a strong point lead in the tour, and said after the victory, he needed to do some soul searching to see if they would continue to follow the tour.
