VAN OUDENHOVEN EDGES SCHULTZ IN STORYBOOK RETURN TOPPING SUPER LATE MODEL ACTION AT WISCONSIN INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY.

Muenster Masters Late Model action, dominates feature contest for victory.

Kaukauna, WI; May 19, 2016 – The 2016 racing season dawned with spectacular weather as teams and drivers flocked to Wisconsin International Raceway for the start of the Thursday Night Thunder point chase as the Times-Village and Amusement Devices sponsored the season opening show

The Fox River Racing Club presented a fast paced program showcasing many new teams and drivers.

Just over one year ago, 4-time Super Late Model champion Jeff Van Oudenhoven ended his 2015 season with a shattered race car and a broken ankle as the result of a horrific crash on the front stretch. This evening he returned to Fox River Racing Club action completing a storybook return by fending off the challenges of a determined Maxwell Schultz to earn the victory.

Officers will be present, along with tech inspectors. Our preference is that drivers and owners of cars planning to compete in these divisions be present.

The goal is not to re.invent the wheel, but to have “intelligent” discussions and finalize each division’s rules package for next season.

Figure Eights will have a meeting only if the drivers are interested, as major adjustments to the rule book already occured last year.
