Custom Windows Plus team driver Kyle Frederick of Gillett had the crowd on it’s feet at Seymour Speedway June 6, as the veteran IMCA stock car driver fought off many of the toughest drivers in the country, including defending track champion Shawn Wagner, to win the feature and snap Wagner’s four straight win streak.
Frederick also won his heat Sunday, nailing down a clean sweep in what’s often referred to as the “class too tough to tame.” “For Kyle to win against a tough field of guys, including Shawn Wagner, that says a lot,” said Jon Courchaine of Custom Windows Plus, who was in attendance Sunday. “That class is loaded with talent, and anytime you can get a win, it says a lot.”
Not even a broken hand can slow down Benji LaCrosse.
The Luxemburg native, who now calls Green Bay home, is prepped to defend his Seymour Speedway IMCA modified track title when the first points night kicks off Sunday May 2 for Jackson Pointe Citgo night at the races.
A few weeks back LaCrosse suffered a broken right hand in a work accident. Despite having six screws put in his hand along with a splint, the former IMCA Supernationals champion managed an eighth place finish at the season opener at Luxemburg Speedway April 23. "It hurt a little bit, but the pain is starting to go away," said LaCrosse. "I normally race with my left hand anyway. I had to put some padding in to hold my arm up. It's a little distraction more than anything. If it rains this weekend I won't be too bummed out, because I'd like to give it a week or so to heal. But I'm a racer and I'll be there."
