Marshall Fegers deals victory at Casino
WATERTOWN, N.Y. (June 5) — Marshall Fegers beat the Casino Speedway field — as well as sundown — in grabbing a $2,000 victory Sunday on the Dart Challenge Late Model Series. The polesitting Fegers raced to his fourth career series victory with one each of the past four seasons.
Jake Redetzke of Eau Claire, Wis., stormed from his 13th starting spot to grab second at the 3/8-mile oval, but he couldn't catch Fegers. | Slideshow
Aberdeen, S.D., drivers Kent Arment and Curt Gelling finished third and fourth while Adam Hensel of Barron, Wis., the previous night's series winner at Dakota State Fair Speedway in Huron, rounded out the top five.

Speedway, which isn't on the schedule this year for the first time since 1999, the inaugural series season. ... Josh Skorczweski's team didn't make it to the track because of trailer problems. ...
