GRAND FORKS, ND (June 13) - Things weren't looking good for Mark Dobmeier in the late stages of the NOSA Outlaw Sprint Car A-main Friday night at RCS. With just 10 laps to go, Dobmeier was mired back in fourth behind some heavy lapped traffic.
But as each lapped clicked by, the Senske & Son Transport #13 seemed to just keep getting faster. In just a matter of five laps, Dobmeier cruised from fourth to the lead as he rode the cushion by Thomas Kennedy. Once out front, Dobmeier never looked back and took his 108th RCS Sprint Car victory.
"It definitely wasn't an easy one," said Dobmeier after the win. "It was definitely one of the most fierce battles we've had here at River Cities Speedway. As we got into lapped traffic, everybody was on the bottom so I tried the top side. Luckily that high groove really came in toward the end of the race and I was able to slip by them."
Next week the World of Outlaw Sprint Cars invade River Cities Speedway. Dobmeier has taken down the Outlaws many times, most recently at Husets Speedway in Brandon, SD last July, but a WoO victory at the Bullring has been the one win that has eluded him.
"Our chance is as good as ever," continued Dobmeier. "We've got great equipment and our team is really jelling. We've taken down the Outlaws a few times, but to get it done at my home track is the goal in life."
