McMullen posts back-to-back victories to climb to top of Plymouth A-main winner's list



(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 26, 2022 – Two-time Plymouth Dirt Track Racing champion and four-time Midwest Sprint Car Association champ Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh moved to the top of the all-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main winners list by notching his second straight 25-lap main event victory at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Friday, Aug. 26.


In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car A main, 2008 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Lance Fassbender of Burnett grabbed the lead on the opening lap from the pole position as outside front row starter Brandon McMullen settled into second.


By lap 6, the leaders caught the rear of the field and began to weave their way through lapped traffic. On lap 8, McMullen worked lapped traffic to his advantage to bolt underneath Fassbender, who was held up behind a slower car, exiting turn two.


Once again, McMullen set a blistering pace was he skillfully maneuvered his way through thick lapped traffic throughout the remainder of the race, even going three-wide to pass a group of slower cars on one occasion.


As the laps wound down, McMullen built up a full-straightaway lead over Fassbender en route to his second straight PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main to vault into sole possession of first place on the all-time PDTR 360 Sprint A-main victory list with his 26th career A-main triumph at The Plymouth Dirt Track. The win was also McMullen’s 36th career A-main victory in Midwest Sprint Car Association competition.


Fassbender placed second, fourth starter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum came home third, third starter Tim Haddy of Waupun placed fourth and defending PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan charged from the 14th starting spot to place fifth in the caution-free race.


Lance Fassbender earned PDTR 360 Sprint Car overall fast qualifier honors with a lap of 12.542 seconds.


The 11th full PDTR racing program of the 2022 season, which was sponsored by Hidden Dreams Livestock, drew 24 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars.


PDTR 360 Sprint Car action resumes Saturday, Sept. 3 during the 2022 Sheboygan County Fair with an all-Sprint Car program featuring the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Cars and PDTR 360 Sprint Cars with on-track action slated to start at 5 p.m.
