July 6, 2018 – (West Salem, WI) – The “Chase” starts this Saturday. The top 16 race teams in the Late Model and Sportsmen divisions are in what is known as the “Chase”. The Chase runs through the Oktoberfest Race Weekend (Oct. 4-7) and each week 2 race teams are eliminated from the Chase. Finishing positions in the feature events is what determines whom is out of the Chase. Essentially if you are in the Chase and finish behind the rest of the contestants of the Chase…you are out. Drivers must remain competitive and stay out of trouble to bring home the coveted trophy. The Chase provides some extra racing drama and gives some teams a chance to make the second half of the season a good one if they have had a bad start.
Six weekly shows remain for 2018!
What a tough first half of the season for the race teams. Three rain outs, three shows with 90+ degree heat and our first show the “Frostbuster” the teams had to race around snow piles. However, better days are ahead! Six great shows remain. The points battles are settling in and as mentioned above the Chase starts this weekend. The great folks and K &N are supporting this weeks show and there should be plenty of action for the K & N 25 lap main event this Saturday. Also on hand will be the Dean’s Satellite & Security Sportsmen, the Auto Value Parts Stores Thunderstox, the Auto Value Street Stocks, and the old time favorite Novelty event..the second over the line wins race.
