Stock Car Racing: Kleinschmidt and Hagemann notch 1st career win – Brainerd Dispatch

Read Time:4 Minute, 6 Second


BARROWS — Ryan Kleinschmidt and Jenna Hagemann each secured their first career win, while Aaron Johnson locked down his fourth win of the season with a dominating performance Saturday, June 11 at North Central Speedway.

Kleinschmidt started in the front row of the 15-lap Hobby Stock feature and he took over first place from Jazlyn Nelon on lap two. Brandon Bombardo who leads the class in points and has two wins on the season, pressured Kleinschmidt for the last six laps of the race, but Kleinschmidt held on to wave the checkered flag for the first time.

Hagemann had made a couple of appearances on the winners podium in her career, but in those cases it was due to a disqualification.

Hagemann, one of the most consistent drivers in the class, has four top five finishes in six races, but Saturday night was her night as she finished first in front of Nathan Kohl, who has four wins this year and leads the class, and Ellen Lange who was a third place finisher.

Last week was a bad week for Aaron Johnson. His car has been a top car all season with three wins and he trailes class leader Shawn Fletcher by just four points, but he was not able to finish the race last week. His car sustained front end damage but was still able to run.

However, according to IMCA rules, if a caution flag was thrown for another car Johnson would also have to leave the track with his damaged car. And that happened early in the race and Johnson was told he needed to leave the track due to the front damage on his car.

Johnson earned a fourth row start in the feature Saturday and he left no doubt as to who the winner would be. Johnson jumped out quickly to the top spot and by the end of the race he had a lead over second-place finisher Shawn Fletcher by half the length of the oval track.

Mod Four driver Tommy Bawden and Super Stock driver Dylan Nelson each recorded their third win of the season. Veteran driver David Dosh was the story in the early part of the race as he started in front of the pack and was able to hold off a hard-charging Austin Niemeyer and Fredrick Myers in the early part of the race. Niemeyer passed Dosh on lap six, but a caution flag came out which meant Dosh got his spot back and he was able to hold on to the top spot for more laps before Niemyer finally caught him on lap 11. Nelson grabbed the No. 2 spot a lap later and a great battle ensued for the last seven laps of the race. Niemeyer led the first two before Nelson got him on lap 16 and held on to the top spot for the final five laps for his third win of the season.

Tim Johnson made his first start of the year in his Street Stock car and led all but two laps of the 20-lap feature to get the win.

Mark Martini recorded his second win of the season for the Northern Sportmods finishing in front of David Siercks and Jake Hagemann.
