Veteran racer and Plymouth Dirt Track Champion Brad “JJ” Mueller took home an emotional win just days after his dirt racing mentor and friend Russ Scheffler passed away. Mueller dominated the 30-lap A-Main at Wilmot (WI) Raceway in the DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour stop.
Mueller started the 30-lap A-Main outside row one and raced side-by-side with Tim Buhler, taking the lead coming out of turn two on lap two. The closest call at the halfway point for Mueller as he tangled with Victor Benedetto but was able to hold on. Caution slowed the field before the lap could be completed and on the restart Swedberg, Mitch McGrath, Jim Letizia, Taylor Scheffler and Chris Carlson got together in turn one, bringing out the red flag.
Mueller had a sizable lead after the restart, but caution slowed the race again with six to go. As Mueller distanced himself, Buhler, Springborn and Hirt battled for second on the restart. Buhler held on to finish second, followed by Justin Schmidt, Hirt and Springborn.
