141 SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCES 2ND PRACTICES SESSION SATURDAY MARCH 24
(Francis Creek, WI) March 18 – Due to the overwhelming success of the Shamrock Shakedown, 141 Speedway promoter Bruce Conard has announced an additional practice session will be held Saturday, March 24 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the high-banked, third mile, clay oval located in Francis Creek.
More than 400 race fans and 44 different drivers in seven classes showed up to give their machines a pre-season shakedown session. “I had a lot of drivers who didn’t have their cars done yet, or their engines weren’t finished, who really wanted us to have another practice, so we’re going to,” said Conard. “I think we’ll be hard pressed to find weather as good as we had on the 17th. At any rate, we’ll be open for practice same time, same place, on the 24th.”
The practice is open to cars in any and all divisions. The pit fees are $20.00 for car and driver, while pit crew members will be charged $10.00. Spectator admission for the practice will be free.
The practice is weather contingent and will run from 1 to 5 p.m. The pit gates and Victory Lane Pub open for business at noon and will serve up food as well.
The season opens Saturday night, April 14 at 6 p.m. An additional practice session is slated for Saturday, April 7. 22 shows dot the track’s aggressive and very busy 2012 schedule. The weekly divisions taking part include modifieds, stock cars, Brian Peterson Builders Grand Nationals, street stocks, IMCA northern sportmods and sport fours. Traveling series that will take part in special events include the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw sprint cars and the Custom Windows Plus Badger Mod Tour presented by Floors By Design & Directional Drilling Services.
Track announcer Joe Verdegan will host a weekly, live racing radio show from the track’s own Victory Pub, which will be broadcast live from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on WCUB 980 AM. It will also be streamed live on the station’s website cubradio.com. The first show will debut Monday, April 9.
Also the Open Wheel Driving school will feature multi time World of Outlaw sprint car champion Sammy Swindell on Monday, July 9. Additional dates for the school may be announced in the near future.
