Crash on first turn helps Korish win points title

West Salem, WISCONSIN   The opening night of the 43rd Oktoberfest Race Weekend got off to a wild start in both the Kwik Trip NASCAR Late Models and The Futures Super Late Model events. 
 Steve Carlson, Matt Tifft, Mark Challet, Matt Inglett, Jason Lindvig, and Kyle Stark took home Fest Feature wins.
Bill Niles and Mark Lamoreaux got together as the green flag flew for the 40-lap Kwik Trip NASCAR Late Models feature race.
Niles would spin to the inside wall while Lamoreaux went and made hard contact with the outside wall.
 A total of 11 cars were collected in the wreck including current point leader Shawn Pfaff.  Pfaff was in the infield where it was discovered that he got a hole in his radiator.
The race re-started with only 15 cars taking the green flag. 
 Steve Carlson would re-start on the outside of the front row and take the lead over Brad Powell.
 Carlson was on a Thursday night drive as the event went caution-free to win the feature event.  J. Herbst was second with Brent Kirchner holding off Brad Powell for third. Mike Carlson was fifth. 
Todd Korish became the 2012 Kwik Trip NASCAR Late Model Championship.
