Sutton Steals ASA STARS “Father’s Day 100” at Milwaukee

ASA STARS National Tour Rookie Dawson Sutton earned his first career series win Sunday afternoon at the Milwaukee Mile Speedway in surprise fashion.


Sutton, the 17 year-old rising star from Lebanon, TN swept past Ty Majeski on lap 96 of the Father’s Day 100, then held off the Wisconsin Short Track Superstar over the final 4 circuits at the famous Wisconsin State Fair Park oval.


Majeski dominated early, passing pole-sitter Casey Roderick on lap 15, leading the next 80 laps and winning both the first and second stages. Majeski had opened up leads of more than 3 seconds during each stage, but could not pull away from the Rookie Sutton over the final 30 lap sprint.


Sutton stayed on the rear bumper of Majeski during the final stage, challenging him on several occasions before making the winning pass with 4 laps to go.


Majeski, who dominated opening round of the ASA STARS National Tour Wisconsin Doubleheader Friday Night at Madison International Speedway, held on for 2nd.


Cole Butcher, who entered the weekend as the Series points leader, rebounded from a tough weekend to finish 3rd. Butcher crashed while leading Friday night at Madison, and then crashed his primary car during practice at the Mile Saturday afternoon. The podium finish salvaged the weekend for the hard-charging Canadian.


Casey Roderick, who took over the ASA STARS National Tour points lead after the Madison, finished fourth Sunday afternoon. The Pulaski, MS racer lead the first 15 laps from the pole before surrendering the point to Majeski. Roderick ran in the top five all afternoon, placing 2nd in stage 1, and 5th in stage 2. The solid day allowed Roderick to unofficially retain his point lead at the ASA STARS National Tour mid-way point.


Billy Van Meter rounded out the top five Sunday afternoon, also a solid rebound after finishing dead last Friday night at Madison.
