Sunday night August 25th was not supposed to be on the Proctor Speedway Schedule as they
rarely race the Sunday prior to Thursday’s Silver 1000 which, this year, is the 41st edition.
Officials in cooperation with United Midwest Sprint Series scheduled the UMSS rained out event
for that open date. Also racing Sunday for no track or national points were the Super Stocks,
Midwest Modified and Pure Stock division. Track championships had been wrapped up the
previous Sunday. Consequently, the three divisions were sparsely populated. UMSS brought two
divisions, their “Traditional” non winged sprints and the Winged Sprints. A total of 21 sprints
were in attendance on a sweltering late August afternoon where the thermometer flirted with the
90 degree mark.

Skeeter Estey drove to an early lead from the pole in the 20 lap Midwest Modified feature
ahead of point leader Danny Vang, Dan Kingsley while Jake Gondik battled with Mack Estey for
fourth and fifth. Skeeter Estey, Kingsley and Vang distanced themselves from the rest until Kyle
Inman’s car erupted in a cloud of steam going down the front stretch. Inman was able to limp off
the track but stalled on the pit road bringing out the caution flag with five laps recorded. On the
restart Skeeter Estey moved out to a ten car length lead while Kingsley was busy holding off
Vang. Ninth starting Deven VanHouse moved in on Gondik for fourth and took the position. The
top seven cars pulled away from Chris Bretting who led a gaggle of cars in a battle for eighth.
Skeeter Estey was in complete control of the race and went on to win his first feature of the
season at the speedway. Kingsley, VanHouse, Vang and Gondik finished in the top five.
