Brandon McMullen gets second win of 2017 at PDTR
In the 25-lap Sprint Car A-main, point leader Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh pulled off a final lap pass to become the first PDTR Sprint Car driver to claim a repeat victory in 2017.
The contingent of first-time A-main winners this season included Chris Carlson of Union Grove (Late Model), Brian Cesar of Sheboygan (Grand National), Tim Warner of Fond du Lac (B Mod) and Jack Vanderboom of Dousman (Micro Sprint).
Outside front row starter Jim Melis of Glenbeulah led from the drop of the green flag in the Sprint Car A-main event with polesitter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum trailing in second and Brandon McMullen, who started fourth, in third.
The top three remained locked in position until lap 21, when McMullen snuck past Wenninger to assume the runner-up spot and quickly set his sights on Melis.
The two-time defending Midwest Sprint Car Association champion then charged in to pull off the winning move on the final lap to secure his 10th career PDTR Sprint Car A-main victory and the 14th overall A-main triumph of his 360 Sprint Car career.
Melis had to settle for second, Wenninger was third, third starter Anthony Knierum of Franksville was fourth and Tim Haddy of Waupun started and finished fifth.
