The riders and sleds of the Great Lakes Antique Snowmobile Series (G.L.A.S.S.) highlighted Day IV of the 50th Anniversary – International 500 Snowmobile Race Week. Three Features were ran as Chris Kelly (Stocks), Jeff Malaska (340s) & Kyle VanSloten (440s) were the big winners of the 2nd Running of the Brad Redman Memorial.
Earlier in the day after Round III & IV of #SooI500 Qualifying, Troy DeWald continued what has been a very good day for the AuGres, Michigan veteran as he held onto the top spot in Woody’s Challenge Qualifying earlier in the afternoon. Then in #SooI5000 Qualifying, he took the top spot there too in his #21 Cadarette Collision Racing entry in Round III with a 39.527=91.077mph.
DeWald would then hang onto the top spot after Round IV with the same quick time. Bunke Racing teammates, Ryan Faust and Gabe Bunke stayed second and third while John Bosek is back in fourth while relegating Tyler Nickels to fifth.
The day started with Woody’s Challenge Qualifying Round II (of three) and it was DeWald topping the charts as his time from one night ago, still stood at a 39.855=90.327mph. Ben Langaas is still second quick over Joey Burch as Timmy Kallock and Alex Hetteen completed the top five.
