OLD

 

  • Update on Red, White and Blue plaques from Budweiser. Ordered…should be coming soon.

 

  • Hoosier tire updates: Joe inquired as to why we didn’t get them from Hoosier last year. They told him that we have to agree to sign a 3 year contract with Hoosier in order to get the free tires. We are unsure how many we will get at this time. We will need to support this and buy them from our distributer.

 

  • Rules recommendations from each division (thus far). SLM rep, LM rep are not present….likely from the weather. We are hoping to have something together in 2 weeks or so. Not enough people present tonight.

 

  • We will have a “rules only” meeting on December 15th at 7pm at the Darboy Club.

VanWychen Collects Super Late Checkered, Bennett Edges Piontek For Season Title!

Last Lap Passes Net Victories for Wenzel in Super Stocks, Van Horn in Sport Trucks and Sonkowsky in Sizzlin 4’s

Kaukauna, WI; August 28, 2014 – It was a race … not only for the titles on championship night at Wisconsin International Raceway, but a race between threatening weather, and the efforts of the Fox River Racing Club to complete the program. It was the final night of the year, and the drama was high, especially with a tight point battle in the Super Late Model division.

Lowell Bennett seeking his fourth career weekly track title at Wisconsin International Raceway came into the evening seven points ahead of Brett Piontek, who just last week had collected his first career title after typing with Maxwell Schultz for the 2014 Red, White and Blue State Championships.

August 21st races have rained out.

For the first time during the 2014 racing season events planned for Wisconsin International Raceway’s “Thursday Night Thunder” program have fallen to weather.

The Season Championship and Fan Appreciation Night will take place next week August 28th.

43rd Annual Red, White and Blue Title Showcases Super Late Model Co-Champions, as Piontek and Schultz Tie In Title Chase! Piontek Take Blue Race Victory!

Cory Kemkes Nabs Red, White and Blue Late Model Title – Takes Feature Contest!

Kaukauna, WI; August 14, 2014 – It was time to decide some championships at Wisconsin International Raceway!  The 43rd Annual Red, White and Blue State Championship series came down to this evening with the program supported by Budweiser / WAPL along with NAPA Auto Parts and Ken’s Sports. Highlighting the show was the “Blue Race”, a 75 lap Super Late Model feature that decided tonight’s title chase.

The top three in points heading into the evening, Ty Majeski, Lowell Bennett and Jeff Van Oudenhoven, all had mechanical issues which dropped them from the championship contention and left the title chase wide open.

The winner of the overall Red, White and Blue championship was not decided until the final lap when Maxwell Schultz put a pass on Kyle Calmes to cross the line in third.  In doing so he earned just enough points, temporarily winning the title by a single marker over Piontek who had seemingly finished runner-up to rookie Dalton Zehr.

Rookie Jesse Oudenhoven Scores First Career Super Late Model Win In Non-Stop Contest!

Point Leader Hauser Outguns Defending Champ Wenzel In Special Stan Gracyalny Memorial for Super Stocks!

Kaukauna, WI; August 7, 2014 – Al Huss Auto & Truck along with Valley Gasket presented the inaugural Stan Gracyalny Memorial Night at the races.  The headlining event this evening was a special 49 lap Super Stock contest.  Gracyalny’s career had spanned nearly six decades and he retired from racing after reaching the age of 80 years old and the evening was dedicated to his memory.

It was fitting that the 49 lap Stan Gracyalny Memorial race came down to the current top two in the Street Stock points.  After 49 hard fought laps point leader Greg Hauser managed to edge out his nearest rival Dylan Wenzel by a car length to score the win.  Aside from the mandatory halfway caution, only two other yellows for minor incidents slowed a clean, hard fought contest.

Fast Qualifier Duchow Nets Late Model Win Over Point Leader Cory Kemkes!

Kaukauna, WI; July 31, 2014 – Weather threatened this evening looking cause the first rain out of the season.  Come race time, skies began to clear and the 10th consecutive “Thursday Night Thunder” race program got underway at the scheduled 6:45pm start time.  Standard Electric Supply was the sponsor of the show. The event began the final third of the 2014 season.

Lowell Bennett was seeking his third straight win in Super Late Model action, and had came within striking distance of race leader Nate Van Wychen in the final turns of the main event.  Van Wychen was able to shut the door on Bennett and gain a well earned victory.  While Bennett did not earn gain third straight win, his championship hops got a huge boost as his nearest rival Jeff Van Oudenhoven was unable to start the feature tonight. As result Van Oudenhoven fell back to third place in the standings.
