Auto racing: Schultz seizes lead and victory at Northern Renegades Superior stop
Veteran Grand Rapids driver earns first Sprint Car win at the track.
Paul Schultz took advantage of a caution flag with six laps to go to seize the lead, overcame another caution and went on to win the Northern Renegades Non-Winged Sprint Car stop Friday night on Day 2 of the Fair Races at Gondik Law Speedway in Superior.
A pair of fellow Grand Rapids drivers, Ken Hron and K.C. Hawkinson, finished second and third, respectively.
Schultz, who earned his first Sprint Car victory at the speedway, also won his heat. He was one of three drivers to earn clean sweeps on the night, joining Shane Howell (Midwest Modifieds) and DeJay Jarecki (Hornets), while Dylan Shelton denied Cory Jorgensen the sweep by winning the Pure Stock feature on a warm and muggy night in Superior.
