JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, May 17, 2014) Kyle Smith of Lake Mills captured his second career Late Model feature victory on Saturday night at Jefferson Speedway. Smith’s win in the B&M Electric 50 lap feature marks the fourth different winner in as many weeks at Wisconsin’s Action Track.
Smith and Tim Sargent brought the field of cars to green as Sargent rifled into the lead entering turn one on the opening circuit. Smith dropped in line behind him with Stephen Scheel in third. Sargent and Smith began to break away from the pack slightly as Brandon Pendleton battled Scheel for the third spot. Scheel reclaimed third on lap 20 with Dylan Schuyler up to fourth. A caution on lap 24 slowed the field and closed them back up with Sargent still showing the way in front of Smith, Scheel and Schuyler. Once racing resumed, Schuyler went to work for the third position. He accomplished that feat on lap 28 as the top three lined up single file and started to pull away from the rest of the pack. On lap 36, Smith began to apply heavy pressure to Sargent who had led every lap thus far. As they raced into turn three on lap 38, they touched slightly resulting in Sargent getting a little loose. Smith pounced on the opening as he drew even on the inside of Sargent. Smith cleared for the top spot a lap later as Schuyler tried to follow under Sargent. Schuyler eventually completed the pass with two laps remaining, but Smith stayed strong out front to see the checkers first. Schuyler finished second followed by Sargent, Dale Nottestad and Scheel.
