Quarter Master Clutch Performance of the Week
Who Performed the Best In the Clutch This Week
Tim Schendel
ASA Midwest Tour
#21 TexPar Energy Chevrolet

To find this week's Quarter Master Clutch Performer of the Week, you have to head up to the Midwest - Wisconsin's Marshfield Super Speedway in fact - to find ASA Midwest Tour race winner Tim Schendel.

Schendel, a former champion of the now defunct NASCAR Midwest Series, won the Kim Parsons Memorial 100 by holding off the challenges of defending ASA MW champion Nathan Haseleu and a host of other short track big guns like Dan Frederickson, Chris Wimmer, Steve Holzhausen, Donny Reuvers, Steve Carlson and Travis Sauter

“That was a lot of tough cars, a lot of tough passing,”  Schendel said in victory lane.

Schendel faced some stuff competition this week away fromt the ASA Midwest Tour this week too.  There were several strong choices for the Quarter Master Performance of the Week that our panel suggested and voted for, including the track crew at Thompson International Speedway (who cleaned up nearly five inches of rainfall from Tropical Storm Hanna to hold 400+ green flags of racing on Sunday), first-time PASS South winner Jay Fogelman, Carquest Tour winner Wayne Smith and NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour victor Todd Szegedy.

Quarter Master salutes Tim Schendel, the "Clutch Performance of the Week."

Performing in the clutch is what seperates a winning driver from the rest of the pack.  Flexing muscle at the right time is something that true talents posess.  Often luck plays a big role in winning versus losing, but being able to squeeze just enough strength out at the perfect opportunity is what separates winners from losers.  Performing in the clutch doesn't necessarily mean winning, however; it's all about making the most from what you've got.

That's why Quarter Master, providers of winning clutches & driveline components to racers from Super Speedway to the Bullring, from IRL to Rally, from NASCAR to the "Weekend Warrior," is proud to honor a weekly "Clutch Performance of the Week" from the short track ranks of America.  Each week, an esteemed panel of short track industry insiders will vote on which drivers came through in the clutch.  The driver or team with the most votes will then be the "Clutch Performance of the Week."  At the end of the 2008 season, the driver or team that received the most votes throughout the season will then be the "Clutch Performer of the Year" and will be awarded a clutch kit from Quarter Master, valued at $3,500.
