Schuerenberg Escapes to Victory Lane in Winter Dirt Games VIII Finale

Ocala, Florida………A seventh-place starting position and a 360 degree spin at the midway point was not enough to deter Hunter Schuerenberg on the path to a “Winter Dirt Games VIII” victory Saturday night at Bubba Raceway Park.

The 27-year-old Sikeston, Missouri native steadily moved his way toward the front of the field throughout the 30-lap event before surging into the lead with seven laps remaining to collect his first USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature victory in nearly three years since a 2014 victory in McCool Junction, Nebraska as well as his ninth career series triumph, joining Mario Andretti and Robbie Stanley for 47th on the all-time list.

At the drop of the green, though, outside front row starter Thomas Meseraull held the point, fending off a furious challenge from previous night’s winner Justin Grant and defending USAC Silver Crown titlist Chris Windom for the first pair of laps.

While Smith gave chase early on, the race on the start saw outside pole starter, Shawn Donath, taking the early advantage over Travis Rilat. Slowed on Lap 3, Rilat was not to be counted out as the No. 29 stole the advantage by just over two tenths before the caution flew again.

Slowed again with five laps complete, Rilat had company on the restart as fourth starting, Mark Smith, began his run on the point. Giving chase and challenging until Lap 13, the following revolution saw the No. M1 advance into the top spot.
