By Scott OwenSHAWANO, Wis. (June 26) – Jeff Larson was the first car to hit the track for hot laps Saturday at Shawano Speedway and it paid dividends for the Illinois racer.Larson won the third leg of the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified Cheesehead Triple Crown and left the track with $5,000, a huge trophy thanks to the Kim Parsons Memorial Trophy Tour and a spot on the ballot for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.Larson and Jerry Wilinski raced wheel-to-wheel following the initial green with Wilinski holding the slightest of leads.Wilinski continued to lead as Larson ran right near the wall trying to gain an advantage. What would be the final caution of the 30-lap feature flew after lap five. As the race went back to green, Larson again tiptoed along the wall and took the lead from Wilinski.Larson then put on a clinic on how to race inches away from the wall as Wilinski battled Kelly Shryock for second and Konnor Wilinski, Jerry’s son, battled with Jay Noteboom for fourth.Shryock and Jerry Wilinski swapped second place three times over the course of laps 19-21. Through the late stages of the race, Larson continued to tour the track inches from the outside wall and extend his lead.Noteboom caught Jerry Wilinski on lap 26 for third and battled past Shryock on lap 28 to move into second.In the end, though, it was all Larson with Noteboom taking second, Shryock third, Jerry Wilinski fourth and R.C. Whitwell fifth. Dylan Smith finished sixth after starting 19th.Travis Van Straten took the lead on the opening lap of the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature and led all 20 laps of the race for the win, his third straight in four outings during the Cheesehead Triple Crown.Wyatt Block had the lead when the 15th lap was scored and motored to the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod checkers.Feature results – 1.

IT was all smiles for the Guyana Floodlight Softball Cup Association (GFSCA) team as they secured a win over the Fisherman’s XI in the Guyana Softball Cup 6 for the Masters’ trophy. The winning side was led by Captain Ricky Deonarine who finished the game in fine fashion with a six over long off to end on 39. It seemed like excellent strategy on the part of the GFSCA side who, after winning the toss chose to send their opponents in to bat in an effort to be good hosts.The Fisherman’s openers got off to a steady start within the first three overs but a brilliant catch by Ramo Malone on the square leg boundary saw the first wicket fell at 13 for 1.Fisherman’s,however,seemed undeterred by that loss and were well on course to a good total with the scoreboard reading 43-1 in the eight over. However, it was Kash Lutchman who broke the second wicket partnership in the ninth over to leave the scorecard 44-2.The third wicket fell 4 runs later in the tenth over just before the break which was taken at 48-2. From this point the tide started to turn against the Fisherman’s team who lost 4 more wickets for 27 runs to leave the score at 67-6.It was Setro Saraj and Lionel Persaud who held the innings together until they both fell,leaving the total at 110-8. The batting side would only make 8 more runs to finish 118-8 from 20. For the bowling side,Ramo Malone, Manoj Arjune and Ramesh Narine finished with bowling figures of 2-8, 2-13 and 2-20 respectively.It was then the GFSCA’s opportunity to chase and they did so in fine style with Uniss Yusuf and Ricky Deonarine getting off to a flying start. Yusuf was then bowled by Sathrohan Seeraj for 27 to give fisherman’s their first wicket. Ramesh Narine then replaced Yusuf but fell for 12 runs, also to Seeraj who finished with 2-19.At this point skipper Deonarine took over, playing sensible strokes while keeping the runs flowing as he rotated the strike with partner Ramo Malone. Deonarine finished on 39 which included two fours and a six that finished the game,while Malone finished unbeaten on 24 which included three fours.After the game, skipper Deonarine stated that this win was a big win for the club. “This is the highest level of softball cricket and this is like our world cup, it is a great win for us,” stated Deonarine.In the female final, Mike’s Pharmacy Wellwoman retained their title with a good win over Trophy Stall’s women.After being restricted to 79 runs from their 10 overs, the Wellwoman side showed their fortitude in bowling out their opponents for 55 runs. It was Wellwoman’s captain Latoya Smith who turned in a good all-round performance ;scoring 35 with the bat inclusive of three sixes and had three wickets for 12 runs as well.The Open final between Speedboat and Regal Masters was still underway up to press time.
