All meetings will be at 7pm at LakePark Pub on the following dates:
SLM- Monday, November 9th
LM/LLM-Thursday, November 12th
SS-Monday, November 16th

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.

Sizzlin 4 meeting will be announced in the next month.

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

BOBBY KENDALL SETS FAST TIME, WINS RICH SOMERS MEMORIAL 50 BUT COMES UP SHORT TO LOWELL BENNETT IN SUPER LATE TITLE CHASE.

Jake Carpenter Captures Late Model Finale While Brent Strelka Earns Division Title.

 

Kaukauna, WI; September 3, 2015 – The point battles were complete, the final checkers have fallen as fans, and drivers alike celebrated in the pit area after the evening’s program with free corn, and beer courtesy of the evening’s sponsor Valley Liquor. It was a successful year of Thursday Night Thunder action at Wisconsin International Raceway.

 

The night also honored two drivers. The late Rich Somers, one of the first Late Model champions in Fox River Racing Club action at Wisconsin International Raceway. The main event was extended to 50 laps in his honor.   Additionally Pete Zarnoth, a Wisconsin Sport Truck driver for many seasons, has decided to hang up his helmet at the age of 83. That division’s main event went 26 laps, in honor of Zarnoth’s number throughout his career.

 

In Super Late Model action Bobby Kendall did just about everything perfect including setting fast time and winning the Rich Somers Memorial 50, but he came up 13 points short of Lowell Bennett in the season long point chase. Bennett drove a conservative race successfully defending his 2014 title by finishing in the eighth position.

 

Jake Carpenter drove a smooth race to outrun Brent Strelka for top honors in Late Model action, but it was Strelka who will hold the championship trophy at the awards banquet in October. Strelka took the title by 38 markers over rookie Braison Bennett.

REPEAT WINNERS RULE IN THURSDAY NIGHT THUNDER ACTION. CASEY JOHNSON STRIKES FOR THIRD TIME IN SUPER LATES.

Braison Bennett Also Reaches Three Victories by Topping Late Model Action.

Kaukauna, WI; August 27, 2015 – The points battles were winding down on the second to last night of racing for the 2015 racing season as Bassett Mechanical presented the weekly “Thursday Night Thunder” Fox River Racing Club program at Wisconsin International Raceway.

Rookie Casey Johnson has had a stellar season, taking his third win of 2015 in Super Late Model action. Tonight’s win elevated him to a tie for second in the season long point chase. Brett Piontek was 13 markers behind Lowell Bennett heading into the program but an accident eliminated Piontek early in the feature while Bennett finished sixth. As a result Bennett extended his point lead to 35 points with one night of racing action remaining.

Rookie Braison Bennett earned his third victory of the 2015 season in Late Model action, but a fifth place showing by Brent Strelka all but locked up the 2015 Late Model title. Strelka just needs to appear, and finish next weeks feature to take the class title.

SAWYER EFFERTZ SHAKES BAD LUCK WITH SUPER LATE MODEL VICTORY AT WISCONSIN INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY.

Brent Strelka Earns Victory In Late Model Action and Takes Season Point Lead.

Kaukauna, WI; August 20, 2015 – Three weeks were left to decide the 2015 season championship events, and Werner Electric Supply presented the evening’s action.

Sawyer Effertz had had a season of mechanical ills and misfortune, but coming out on top of this evening’s Super Late Model main event soothed some of the sting of an otherwise challenging season.  The victory was the first for Effertz in 2015.

In Late Model action, Brent Strelka used a victory and the misfortune of former point leader Jim Duchow, to take over the top spot in the season standings with two races to go.  Strelka has a 31 point lead, a comfortable margin heading into the final nights.

BENNETT DOMINATES BLUE RACE, APEL BECOMES 44TH ANNUAL RED, WHITE AND BLUE STATE CHAMPION AT WISCONSIN INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY.

Bryan Monday Captures First Career Late Model feature win, Eddie Muenster overall Red, White and Blue Late Model winner.

Kaukauna, WI; August 13, 2015 – The final round of the 44th Annual Red, White, and Blue State Championships was presented this evening at Wisconsin International Raceway.

The Budweiser, WAPL, and NAPA Auto Parts Blue Race 75 concluded the championship series, and when the dust settled after the final checkered flag the 2015 champions in the series were crowned. Ken’s Sports, and Polaris provided additional support for the series this season. Ken’s Sports gave away a four-wheeler through a special drawing among the drivers who participated in all three races in the series and Steve Apel won the draw and walked away with the big prize.

Steve Apel may have not swept the Red, White, and Blue series but an eighth place finish in the Blue Race was enough to give him the overall Red, White and Blue crown. Lowell Bennett dominated the 75 lap contest but would up short in the title chase by 11 points.
