Winchester, Ind. (July 1, 1984) – Veteran driver Bob Senneker benefitted from a quick pit stop with 92 laps remaining and broke away from a four-car pack to take the checkered flag in the American Speed Associations’ Silver Creek 250 Sunday at Winchester Speedway.

Senneker, of Dorr, Mich., made a pit stop for fuel and new tires with three other front-running cars. He was the first to get back on the track and was never headed.

Dick Trickle of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., finished second, Jim Sauter of Necedah, Wis., was third, Doug Klein of Fairview Heights, Ill., took fourth, and Ken Lund of Oregon, Wis., rounded out the top-five finishers.

Senneker pocketed $6,825 of a $46,000 purse for the victory. His average speed in the 250-lap race was 81.809 miles per hour.
