Herzog hooks Open Late Model win at the LoanMart Madera
By Ronald Montez/The Madera Tribune
Although they are not exactly fishing, drivers in the 100-lap Open Late Model Series must show a great
amount of patience when it comes to trying to catch the car ahead of them.
In Race No. 6 of the $1,000 to win LoanMart Open Late Model Series split 50's, Bryan Herzog did his best
fisherman impression while waiting for the perfect time to reel in a win Saturday night (August 29) in
front of an impassioned crowd at the LoanMart Madera Speedway.
After biding his time for a majority of the MAVTV-filmed race, Herzog casted his recognizable green and
black No. 11 car out in front on a Lap 62 restart and, lap by lap, pulled in a big first-place trophy.
Along with collecting a $1,000 prize payout, Herzog earned his third Open Late Model Series win of the
season after claiming the June 20 and May 30 races on "The Fastest 1/3 Mile in the West".
Herzog wasn't the only driver to net a main victory on the night as Josh Whitfield (Open Hobby Stocks),
Jillaun Holden (Toyota Sedans), Kevin Thompson (MST'S) and Andrew Payne (WSRA Mini Cups) also
wrapped up wins in their respective divisions.
HEADLINES OF THE NIGHT
HERZOG DOWN EARLY, RISES LATE IN 100-LAP DOGFIGHT
When it comes to operating the Open Late Model cars, it takes a special breed of athletes to suit up, buckle
in and race against others in a vehicle that can potentially top 100 MPH going around a sometimes
heavily congested track.
Those brave 16 drivers included Herzog, Buddy Shepherd, Matt Erickson, Gabe Herzog, Ronnie Roberts,
Joey Licata, Trevor Schlundt, Danny Guibor, Garland Tyler, Ryan Hart, Jason Aguirre, Emma Tucker,
Rick Thompson, Larry Pasquale, Del McIntosh and Alexander Mead.
With fans watching in anticipation, Tyler made his presence known early on the track and led for the first
20 consecutive laps while Herzog, Licata, Hart and Shepherd were near by.
Because of contact on Lap 20, Herzog and Licata were sent to the back of the race.
While being sent to the rear could be a devastating blow to a driver's chances of winning, Herzog knew
there was plenty of race left in the 100-lapper and did what he had to do to climb back to the top.
Although two more cautions would follow because of contact in the middle of the pack, Shepherd - the
division's top qualifier (15.221) - used the restarts on Lap 27 and 30 to his advantage and took the lead
ahead of Tyler. Click here for more
