June 14, 2012 - Well the ASA Midwest Tour presented by SCAG Power Equipment and Lester Buildings was not the only thing racing this past Tuesday at the Milwaukee Mile. The ASA Midwest SCAG Truck Tour had their own 30 lap feature event as well.

Twenty-one trucks qualified and made the event. The #97 of James Swan had the fastest lap with a 30.936 ahead of the 88 of Rick Corso with a 31.365 and #72 of John Wood with a 31.502.

An invert of 13, put Sandwich, IL driver, Vinnie Wilkinson on the inside of the front row. Bill Collins started in second followed by Joel Willman and eventual winner, Dan Barber.

As the green flag dropped, Bill Collins took off with the early lead. The battle was mid-pack as the trucks battled side-by-side lap after lap.

The two trucks that were on the early move were Dan Barber and Jerry Wood. On lap ten Sun Prairie’s Chad Knaus slipped into the lead as Dan Barber dove to the inside of Bill Collins for second.

Meanwhile the #72 of John Wood was on a mission and setting his sights on the top three after starting in 11th.

About mid-race the field began to stretch out and drivers were settling in. But up front, Dan Barber and Chad Knaus were nose to tail.

Barber started to stretch out his lead as John Wood started his battle with Jeff Watters for third. He could not get it done until a lap later when he got around Watters and went up to third.

Dan Barber won the Swiss Colony Howie Lettow Memorial 30 followed by Chad Knaus and John Wood. Jeff Watters and James Swan rounded out the top five.

Fast qualifier Vinnie Wilkinson ended up 11th.
