NeSmith DLMS: Breuer Loves Greenville Gumbo

Roby Helm

GREENVILLE, Miss. – Dan Breuer of Troutman, N.C. found the gumbo clay at Greenville Speedway a familiar surface on Saturday, as the Iowa native won the R"umble On The Gumbo 75" for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series, driving the AES Special.

Breuer restarted in fifth-place on a lap 68 restart, stepped to the outside groove, and took the lead on lap 72 from Mike Boland of Cuba, Ala.  Boland led the first 71laps, but reported after the race that he had a tire going down in the last half of the race. Boland hung on to finish second, 1.832 seconds behind Breuer.

“I grew up in Eastern Iowa and began my racing career there, so I’m used to racing on this Mississippi River gumbo clay,” Breuer said.  “When we were working lapped traffic, I found out that my car worked good on the high side.  I went to the outside after that last restart because there was nothing left on the bottom, and I had nothing to lose.”

Matthew Turner of Dawsonville, Ga. in the Hedman Husler joined Breuer on the outside for the seven lap dash to the finish and came from the sixth spot on the restart to finish third.  Turner started the race from the 14th spot and earned the Hedman Husler Award.

Johnny Stokes of Columbus, Miss. took the fourth spot and two-time series Champion David Earl Gentry of Murfreesboro, Tenn. finished fifth. Gentry restarted second on the lap 68 restart, but also cut down a tire in the final laps.

Shannon Lee of Lumberton, Miss. had an up and down night to finish sixth.  Lee was involved in a lap 23 tangle, cut down a tire on lap 34, and had to go to the tail of the cars on the lead lap.  Lee worked his way back up to the fourth spot late in the race. Jeremy Shaw of Millport, Ala. finished seventh, the last car on the lead lap.
