BARROWS -- Like a bone-chilling wind that swept through North Central Speedway on Saturday night, the main feature winners scored clean sweeps in all four classes.
Seventeen-year-old NCS Pure Stock feature winner Derek Olson also won his second consecutive feature at the speedway.
Other sweepers were Tim Brown in Wissota Midwest Modified, 62-year-old Tom Feierabend in Wissota Super Stock and Kevin Baron in Wissota Street Stock.
Baron was declared the winner after Donnie Jensen, who had won, failed his post-race technical inspection.
Other feature winners were David Read in Pure Stock consolation, Jason Vandekamp in Street Stock consolation, Scott Blood in the Midwest Modified B feature and Scott Lake in the Midwest Modified C feature.
All winners, in addition to Vandekamp, were area racers. Of the 117 entries, 29 were racing on the one-third mile dirt track for the first time this season.
Ogilvie's Dustin Nelson gave outside polesitter Feierabend a battle in a feature marred by six cautions. The race also was shortened from 20 laps to 15 because of the six cautions (a feature is shortened five laps after five cautions).
After the second caution, the double-file restart saw polesitter Doug Frederick on the point by himself, seventh-place starter Nelson on the inside of the second row and Feierabend on his right.
Frederick's tire went flat on the restart, creating Nelson and Feierabend's battle. In the next lap, they were door to door on the back stretch. Feierabend went to the high side of Turn 4 to pass Nelson on the fifth lap.
The next few laps saw Nelson pass Feierabend on Turn 1 by racing to the bottom to lead at the line twice but cautions nullified his lead both times. After the fifth caution, Feierabend stayed on the bottom of the first turn to hold on for the win by an unofficial .64 seconds.
"I realized with Nelson going low on the inside that I was going to have to go low on one and two," Feierabend said. "I knew he was coming on strong."
Fourth-place finisher George Mattson also came on strong after starting 10th.
Brown, who started third and collected his third clean sweep of the season, was strong from the start in a 15-lap non-stop feature.
After door-to-door battles with polesitter Tim Siercks in the first four laps, Brown made the winning pass in Turn 2 on the fifth lap.
"I moved up to the high side to run around the cushion on the top," he said. "After that I just kind of held my line."
With five laps to go, Brown was pulling away and led Kevin Yeager by 2:19 seconds. He won by .99 seconds.
Yeager, who started eighth and finished second, passed Siercks on lap nine. Before his pass, the pair were side by side at the line. Another big mover in the race was two-time feature winner Troy Jordan, who started ninth and finished fourth.
The Street Stock feature saw several lead changes. Third-place starter and polesitter Tony Yezek led the first lap. Paul Marohn, racing in only his fourth Street Stock feature, led the next five laps. Jim Gullikson led the next three laps followed by Jensen.
Gullikson passed Marohn on the back stretch. On the next lap, Marohn's front suspension broke.
In the closing laps, Gullikson, Baron and two-time feature winner Ron Johnson were three-wide, banging at the line and battling for second.
Olson's victory came with patience. While race-leader and outside polesitter Mike Cash was battling Mike Smude and Doug Cyrus on the first turn, Olson scooted underneath the trio for the lead.
