Point Battles AMP UP Tonight at Seymour

Seymour, August 30 – 9 AM -  Second last day of the month and second last race of the season TONIGHT at the Seymour Speedway.   Looks like a perfect day for racing action  on the 1/3 mile banked clay oval.

Point chases will heat up even more with both weeks full point shows in all divisions.      Four of the five are too close to call.


The only division close to a championship decision is the Coors Light IMCA Stock Car division.    Travis Van Straten holds a firm 24 point margin over defending, and six time champ, Rod Snellenberger.      Van Straten has 7 feature win on the season here and believe last nights win at Shawano gives him a 30 win season.   Hot Rod has 3 feature flags.     It will be Van Stratens first Stock Car title here.   He was the 2009 Sport Mod title holder.   In the very competitive division, this one won’t be over til it’s over.


The rest of the division titles are all up for grabs.


Budweiser IMCA Modifieds have Eric  Scribner holding  a slim 5 point (450-445) margin over Eric Arneson.     Scribner has 2 feature wins this season here and Arneson has been a consistent top five runner all season.  Both are looking for their first Seymour Speedway title.


Lucas Lamberies has led the O’Reilly Auto Parts IMCA Sport Mod standings since mid season.  Defending champ, Jeremy Cota, has won the last three features to inch to within 4 points 495-491, entering the final 2 weeks.     The pair have a combined feature win total of 12 out of the 15 run this season.  Cota has 7 and Lamberies 5.    


The Turbo Blue Street Stocks is not only a 4 point lead for first, but only 5 separate the top three.    Allan Schlueter has moved back into the point lead holding a 495-491 margin over Jeff Jungwirth with Lexii Ashcraft only one behind in third at 490.     Schlueter and Ashcraft have 4 wins each this season and Jungwirth has 2 entering tonights contest.    Either one of these tough competitors would be first time Seymour Speedway champions.


Kasey Gross started the season slow but has come on over the past couple weeks in the 4 Cylinder division, to move out to a 486 lead over a 473 point tie for second between Tanner Westphal and Tyler Hunfgerford.    Carl King is one more back in third at 472.    That’s only 15 points separating  these four drivers.    Gross leads in the win columns with 3.  Westphal and King each have 2 and Hungerford has 1 for the season, so far.     Either one of these 4 with be first time track champions here.


The racing action has been very close and competitive at the Seymour Speedway all season and the end of the season chase for the Championships should amp that up a bit more.

Point races Tight Heading into final 2 weeks

Seymour, August 27 – A total of 2 weeks remain on the 2015 schedule and both are full point nites to decide the division champions.


Racing has been very competitive and could even ramp up a bit over the final 2 weeks.


The Budweiser IMCA Modifieds has Eric Scribner still sitting atop the standings, but only 5 points 450-445, ahead of Eric Arneson.    Mike Wedelstadt was in the title hint a couple weeks ago, until an early crash dropped him from 2rd to fifth.  He made a huge jump back into the thick of the battle last week with a dominating  feature win, his second of the season, that pushed him up to third with 433.    Rookie, Konnor Wilinski, and his dad, Jerry, sit next in line with 432 and 429.    T.J. Smith is still mathematically in the hunt as well.


The Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars has Travis Van Straten in command of the division.    He has a division leading 7 feature wins so far this season and has also been the dominant driver in Northeastern Wisconsin driving towards 30 wins for the season.    He holds a 505-481 lead over 6 time and defending champion, Rod Snellenberger.    The race seems to be for second unless Van Straten has a major something happen.     Snellenberger is only 6 points ahead of Chas Van Ooyen in third with Kyle Frederick in fourth with 463.    Mike Schmidt is fifth with 426 and Jeremy Wiitala rounds out the top six with 400.


The race in the O’Reilly Auto Parts IMCA Sport Mod division has basically been a 2 car race all season long.   Defending champion, Jeremy Cota, and Lucas Lamberies have been in a back and forth battle all season.  Over the first 6 weeks, both won three features.  Lamberies won back to back at mid season to move into the point lead and Cota has rebounded from mid season woes to win the last three main events and has moved up to 4 points, 495-491 of a repeat title.    The last 2 weeks should prove to be very interesting.   Travis Arenz has had an interesting season the past couple weeks, but even running borrowed cars has kept him in third place  with 461.    Kevin Bethke has 448 with Scott Besaw in fifth at 431.   J.J. Andersen rounds out the top six at 395


The Turbo Blue Street Stocks has been very close all season .   Jeff Jungwirth  sat atop the standings early in the season with Allan Schlueter and Lexii Ashcraft chasing.   Schlueter moved  ahead of the field until Ashcraft put together a string of three straight wins at the end of June to spend a few weeks as point leader.   Schlueter has since won 2 more features to retake the top spot and holds a 495-491 margin over Jungwirth.   Ashcraft is still right in the hunt with 490 for what should be an excellent run for the title over the next 2 weeks.   Jeff Dorschner is fourth  with 440 markers, only 2 ahead of Matt Warner.  Defending champion, Ryan Blank currently sixth with 435, but an accident a couple weeks ago, ended his title run for the year.     Paul Ambrosius  is next in line with 431.


The 4 Cylinder division will see a new, and first time, Seymour champion in 2015.   Kasey Gross is the current point leader since mid season and has a 486 – 473 lead over a tie for second with Tanner Westphal and Tyler Hungerford.    Carl King is third with 472.     Taylor Becher, Heidi Meverden and rookie Skyler Bork round out the top six,


Looks like the weather will be nice for this week for the final sprint to the finish line for all the divisions.


Pit opens at 4 PM.

Grandstand opens at 4:30.

Racing at 6 PM every week.

We appreciate you support and choosing the Seymour Speedway for your Sunday night racing.
