“For the last ten years, short track racing has been my main focus. Being able to work with everyone up here in LaCrosse and having their support moving forward means a lot to me.” noted Wells. “This is a premier track and it is an honor to be handed the reigns for the next chapter in its history. We have so many traditional events here and have some new twists throughout the schedule for the teams and fans. I’m looking forward to getting the first few events under my belt and getting the season off to a strong start.”
Many in the racing world will recognize Wells not only from Madison and Angell Park, but he has been instrumental in LaCrosse’s Oktoberfest Race Weekend in recent years alongside his role with the ASA Midwest Tour and various other racing adventures. While there is a change at the top, Motorsports Management, Inc co-owners Deery and Gregg McKarns look forward to what Wells will bring to the table.
