Schuerenberg Wins USAC’s First Race at McCool
By Anthony Ainslie
Hunter Schuerenberg won the first ever USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Series event Saturday night.
After 30 caution-free laps, Sikeston, Missouri’s Schuerenberg took the checkered flag in USAC’s first trip to the Junction Motor Speedway. After a few years of bad luck, Schuerenberg turns it around with a victory.
Schuerenberg’s 20N car picked up a special sponsorship for the race at the Junction. Moses Motor Company was on the side of the car that raced to victory lane. The Ford dealer based out of York, Neb. has been a big supporter of racing at Junction Motor Speedway.
Schuerenberg said his crew did such a great job getting his car ready. He said it didn’t matter whether he wrecked two straight weeks or winning races, they stuck by him.
Seventeen 410 wingless sprints took to the Junction for the first ever race at the track. The Missouri Driver had to earn the victory because Tracey Hines and quick time award winner, Brady Bacon, were all over Schuerenberg for the lead. Schuerenberg took the lead from Dave Darland with 16 laps remaining in the 30-lap main event. Bacon gave Schuerenberg a challenge for the lead in the closing laps. Bacon finished third when all said and done, and Hines took third. Darland finished fourth in the race, and two-time defending series champion Brian Clauson rounded out the top five.
