Zomer wins NSL feature at Jackson Speedway July 24, 2015

National Sprint League

JACKSON - Dusty Zomer became the sixth different winner in as many events for the FVP National Sprint League when he captured the feature victory at Jackson Speedway Thursday night.

The Sioux Falls driver’s win during the Jackson County Fair race supported by Abdo, Eick & Meyers LLP was his first with the series, making Thursday the fourth straight NSL event with a new winner.

Zomer shot out immediately in the 25-lap main event ahead of pole-sitter, Lynton Jeffrey and Bryan Clauson. The pilot of the Todd and Susan LaHaise #82 was a rocket and by lap five, had opened up almost a three second lead on Jeffrey.

On lap eight, Clauson used the low side of turn two to jet by Jeffrey for second. Three laps later, Dakota Hendrickson slowed high in turn two to bring a caution flag. Zomer led Clauson, Bill Balog who had captured third, Jeffey and Brian Brown back to green.

Zomer’s domination continued as he got back into lapped traffic. Meanwhile, a battle emerged between Clauson, Balog and Danny Lasoski, who had taken over fourth. That trio put on an entertaining battle for position. One last caution came out with two laps to go for Logan Forler, who stopped in turn one.

Zomer was never threatened, pulling away for his first FVP National Sprint League win. Clauson went to the cushion in one and two to try to make a bid for the lead. Balog shot under him to claim second. Following the lead trio were Lasoski and Jeffrey. Ian Madsen, Craig Dollansky, Tim Kaeding, Mark Dobmeier and KSE hard-charger, Terry McCarl, rounded out the top ten. Brown was running sixth on the final restart, but had a tire go down as he faded to twelfth.

Zomer set quick time over the field. Madsen, Dobmeier and Tasker Phillips won heat races. Sprint Car Racing on Facebook donated $50 to the third place car of Clauson.

“The car was really good,” said Zomer in Victory Lane. “My hat’s off to my crew chief, Greg McCormick. He gave me a great car. He worked his butt off this week. We missed a couple shows, but we wanted to come in here nice and strong. We did that. We’ve been so close to getting a win in this NSL deal. It feels really good to get a win. We wanted to get out front and build some speed…get out as far as possible. I’m really happy for the team. I can’t thank Todd and Susan LaHaise enough. It’s a blast. Hopefully, we can keep this momentum up.”

“Speedweek has been good to us,” said Balog, who also picked up a win Tuesday in Britt, Iowa. “We’ve learned a lot in a short amount of time. We saw we were close in hot laps to having the speed we needed. It feels good to finish second. We’re not really big track guys.”

“We kind of felt like we had one shot to win it and left the door open,” said Clauson of the last restart. “We’re hungry for a win. We’ve ran on the podium a few times here. We ran pretty well. We probably could have putted the bottom and ran second, but we wanted to go for the win.”

Rutt named to Iowa wrestling coaching staff July 21, 2015

IOWA CITY - Former Jackson County Central wrestler Travis Rutt has joined the University of Iowa wrestling staff as interim strength and conditioning coach. Iowa head coach Tom Brands made the announcement Monday.

“I am excited for the opportunity coach Brands has given me,” said Rutt. “I am eager to begin working with the program and do everything I can to bring another national championship to Iowa City.”

Rutt won two state titles while wrestling for JCC. He also placed third as a sophomore and fourth as a freshman. His career high school record was 181-12.

He was a Cadet freestyle all-American in 2006 and was first at the 2008 Junior Greco-Roman National Championships and fourth in freestyle. In addition, Rutt earned academic all-state honors twice.

Rutt was an All-American at Wisconsin in 2011. He took an Olympic redshirt in 2012 and sat out the 2013 season after transferring to Oklahoma. In 2014, he was Big 12 runner-up at 197 pounds, qualified for the NCAA Championships for the third time in his career, and earned a master of science degree from OU.

“It is a privilege to work with great athletes and become part of such a successful program,” said Rutt. “I know my experience wrestling in the Big Ten and Big 12 is going to be an asset to this team. Coach Brands and the entire program have been very welcoming and I am excited for the season to begin.”

Prior to joining the UI staff, Rutt served as the director of strength and fitness at Pinnacle Strong, a private business designed to improve sports performance through strength training for prep and college athletes.

He worked in the strength and conditioning office and served as assistant wrestling coach at Augsburg College during the 2014-15 season, and previously served as the Greco-Roman/strength and conditioning coach for the Minnesota Storm Wrestling Club.
