Achzet comes from deep to win at Fairbury

After winning a few weeks ago in the Super Dirt Series at Lanier, Michael Achzet wanted a taste of victory lane in the 358 Series as well. While he would time trial 1st, he’d finish 4th in heat 1 and would end up starting 10th on the grid in the feature. Pole sitter Jesse Isadore would take command of the race in the early going, leading the first 9 laps before a bout of yellow fever took hold. After a handful of restarts, Isadore would still be sitting up top in front of Blake Schonthaler and Michael Peek, with Brett Rowles trying to muscle his way to the top. A 17 lap run in the middle of the race though would see Achzet slowly creeping forward from his 10th starting position. A restart on lap 32 would have Achzet looking to the outside of Isadore. On lap 35, he’d get the run to do it. Isadore was left fighting it out with 20th starter James Shirley for the runner up spot, and while Achzet would run away for a 1 second victory, Isadore would just hold off Shirley by a .1 tenth for 2nd.
