Seymour Sunday August 18- 10 AM – This will be a perfect day to load up the family for the best short track racing in Wisconsin tonight at the Seymour Speedway.
Van’s HiWay Auto will be the title sponsor for the full 5 division program on the banked 1/3 mile clay oval..
The track will also host their first EVER Trailer Race to close the program.
The IMCA divisions will be running their second last point race of the season.
Defending Budweiser IMCA Modified champion, Jason Czarapata, has a strong hold on the standings with a 25 point margin over Jay Matthias and 27 over rookie Troy Jerovetz. Czarapata could wrap his up second straight title this week with another strong run.
The Coors Light IMCA Stock Car battle is a virtual toss up yet, with former 5 time champion, Rod Snellenberger clinging to a mere 2 point lead over rival John Heinz. Heinz picked up his second feature win of the season last week and is looking for his first career N.E.W. DIRT title. Snellenberger is still looking for a feature win here this season but has consistently run in the top 5 to maintain the point edge.
The IMCA Sport Mod division has the top three drivers separated by only 11 points.
Tracy Wassenberg has led the way throughout the season and has three feature wins to his credit. A DNF and other problems have allowed the competition to creep closer over the past 2 weeks. Jeremy Cota sits 3 marks back and is tied with 3rd place driver Cody Hokenstad with a division leading 4 feature wins. Hokenstad is 11 points behind. These three have been close all season and the next 2 weeks should be exciting to watch.
The Street Stock and 4 Cylinders will be running for point for the final 3 weeks.
Jon Ashcraft holds a strong 23 point lead over Mert Summers in the Street Stocks. He has one feature win this season but has been a steady top five runner. Summers has not won a feature but again shows consistency can make you a contender. Jerry Winkler has a division leading 8 feature wins but sits 5th in the standings behind Lexi Ashcraft and Alan Schluetter, and out of the title hunt.
Tyler Hungerford had led the point standings all season in the 4 Cylinders, until defending champion, Calvin Stueck picked up his 4th feature win last week and gained the point lead by 4 points over Hungerford. The pair have run strong all season and it should come down to the final night.
All the action kicks off at 6PM SHARP.
We appreciate you choosing to spend part of your weekend with us every Sunday night at the Seymour Speedway.
