Shane Hiester Wins Season Finale for Fifth Mod Victory

Shane Hiester won his 5th Modified feature of the season at Randy’s Raceway.  Hiester who completed a mad dash at the point title fell short by just six points.  Sheldon Hiester won his very first Modified Championship at Randy’s Raceway with an efficient third place finish in the final show.  Veteran Bill Brenner was second in the race and looked real strong in his Eric Beard prepped racer.  Fourth went to the defending Modified champion Mark Williams who wound up third in this years chase.  Rounding out the top five was Corey Bailey, ending his rookie campaign in 7th overall and second in the rookie standings.
The finish – 1 – Shane Hiester, 2 – Bill Brenner, 3 – Sheldon Hiester, 4 – Mark Williams, 5 – Corey Bailey, 6 – Bryan Kisthart, 7 – Mike Feltenberger, 8 – Bob Amore, 9 – Mike Fitzgerald, 10 – Billy Decker.

The final official race is in the books for 2012-2013 just leaving the annual banquet race.  Last years banquet winner Shane Hiester along with his brother Sheldon will be preparing the cars for action this year on the tub track.  Bill Brenner celebrates 50 years of slot car racing soon and earned a hard fought 2nd in the feature showing the vets still can give these little cars a good run.  Bill has raced at many tracks over the years including my track in Trooper PA back in the 70’s.  Congrats to the Modified Points Champion Sheldon Hiester winner of 5 features and 44 segments this season.  I will put together a season wrap up over the summer so please look for that soon.  Tony Z gave the Jimmy Keppley #59 a good run coming home 11th.  Bob Amore had car trouble in warm-ups wrecking 2 cars and then had to jump in a Shane Hiester backup car at the last minute.
