Kahler Bumps, Runs To National Short Track Championship Win

LOVES PARK, Ill. — A rather rock ‘em and sock ‘em 55th annual National Short Track Championships 200 super late model stock car race took place Sunday afternoon at Rockford Speedway, with Max Kahler coming home the winner. Nottestad was later disqualified during a post-race inspection for a carburetor infraction. Both Nason and Prunty looked to be in contention for the win during the race that was plagued by numerous yellow flags. When racing got going again around lap 40, Nottestad was out front with Rich Bickle Jr., another two-time National Short Track Championship winner, giving chase. When racing resumed, Nottestad quickly got back out front. Nason became the leader just passed the halfway mark with Kahler and Nottestad trailing. Nason looked on his way to victory until another competition yellow came out with 178 laps complete. Nottestad was again the leader but found himself trying to hang on in the closing lap from the challenging Kahler. Eight cars finished the race with Kahler, a recovering Bilderback, Nottestad, Nason and Landry Potter completing all 200 laps.
