Flanscha, Stifflear, Warner, Willeweit take home titles in eBay Motors Fall Series
By Ronnie Kohrt
Four new champions were crowned Sunday as the Fall Series presented by eBay Motors concluded the 2021 points season for Bandimere Speedway.
Blaine Flanscha, along with Brent Stifflear, Chris Warner and Kerry Willuweit took home titles in their respective categories in the unique four-race series featuring both 1/8th mile racing as well as 1/4 mile paired via the uno card draw.
In an exciting finish, Steven Mang, who finished second in points, trailed the eventual Trophy champion Flanscha heading into the final points race with multiple other racers potentially in line for a track championship. But as the rounds progressed, it became a two-horse race between Flanscha and Mang.
With an opportunity to take out the points leader in the semi-finals himself and make up ground to potentially win the championship in the final round, Mang took out his opponent as Flanscha was red off the starting line setting up Mang in the final against Derek Sarlo, where Sarlo denied Mang the win. Sarlo's 30-pack sealed the deal for the win in his purple Duster and put Flanscha on-top as the champion when the dust settled.
Chris Warner put in a dominant performance over the series reaching the fifth round or better in all-but-one race. Warner's 310 points were the most accumulated in the entire Fall Series and his success was rewarded with the championship over the weekend. Chris Davidson and Chris Conley finished second and third respectively in the category.
Several racers had a shot at the championship heading into the final Sunday of the year but after some early round losses by the competition, Kerry Willuweit took advantage and ran away with the Super Pro Championship. Willuweit was 26-total in the finals to lock up the championship in his 68 Camaro.
Separation for the champion began in the second round as Brent Stifflear - one of the winningest drivers in Bandimere Speedway history - began to pull away from what was a three-horse race for the championship. Stifflear would not only pull away from the competition for the championship, he would straight outright win the day in Senior to finalize his name on another championship.
