Morris, IL (08/31/08) David Budres drove his way into the record book as the 9th Illini Racing Series driver to win the Task Management Night of Features in front of a packed grandstand at the Grundy County Speedway. The Beloit, WI driver had the fans on his side after his come from behind heat race win, making his victory lane appearance very popular with the crowd.

In only his second night in the Fred Teer #54, Budres seemed to be getting comfortable in the car until the white flag flew in his heat and he did an unassisted spin in turn two. Restarting at the tail end of the field for the green-white-checker finish, the crowd cheered louder with every car he passed. As he made his move past the lead car of Scott Dunning in turn four of the final lap, thousands of fans stood to roar their approval.

Sean Murphy, coming off a late model win the night before, ran away with his heat over Loran Critchett and Allen Gillis.

After the four wide salute to the fans, the feature race was a dandy. Doug Orseske took them three wide into turn two on the opening lap. Orseske had moved into third in points after his qualifying effort, but had dropped back to fourth after his heat. Only 40 points separated 2nd and 4th so it would come down to this last feature event of the year to settle who would be runner-up behind 2008 champion Joe Knippel, who had clinched the title the previous night at Hawkeye Downs in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Knippel, using Budres’ regular ride, used up a right rear dirt tracking the 1/3 mile paved track lap after lap, never giving Budres a chance to catch his breath until lap 14 when Murphy kissed the front stretch wall. Murphy was uninjured. Knippel’s ride started to overheat under the caution, forcing him to the infield pit area.

Gillis would challenge Budres for the remaining 11 laps, but when Danny Carter’s twin checkers fell, it would be Budres by a car length. Loran Critchett finished third to keep Orseske one position behind him, in the race and the year-end points.

Thank-you to everyone involved with the IRS for providing an avenue for one to have the opportunity to run in the top five without having to spend $30,000+ on an engine (now if I could only get the old one I have to stay running...). Anyway, I REALLY hated to miss all the action this weekend. It would have been fun racing with Allen for 5th in points. Please keep us informed of 2009 plans, rules, etc. Thank-you.
