141 SPEEDWAY BATTLES MOTHER NATURE, PREPARES FOR RACING MAY 4
(Possible 5th IMCA modified driver to earn berth into “Big Cash Dash” June 15)
(Francis Creek, WI) May 3– Despite the nasty weather that has been thrown at the Badger state this past week, it’s all systems go at 141 Speedway in Francis Creek as the staff prepares for another night of racing Saturday May 4 at 6 p.m.
Last week a total total of 147 cars checked in to do battle for the season opener. The field included 36 Mike Hansel Trucking IMCA modifieds, 12 Brian Peterson Grand Nationals, 28 IMCA stock cars, 24 Tisler Salvage street stocks, 30 Mike Hansel Trucking IMCA northern sportmods and 17 sport fours. With other local tracks raining out Friday night odds are another full field of cars will turn out at the high-banked, third-mile clay oval.
Last week De Pere’s Johnny Whitman, who was awarded the IMCA modified feature after the apparent winner was disqualified, earned himself a spot in the “Big Cash Dash” June 15. The winner of that event will earn the 141 Speedway provisional into the $10,000-to-win Clash at the Creek V at 141 June 26-27. Three other drivers have qualified for the special dash. They are former track champions Jared Siefert (2010), Sean Jerovetz (2011) and Shawn Kilgore (2012). All IMCA modified feature winners on Saturday nights at 141 leading up to June 15 will earn a spot into the Dash, along with the top ten drivers in points heading into June 15.
Other opening night feature winners included defending track champion John Heinz of Green Bay (IMCA stock cars),
Shawano’s Tracy Wassenberg (IMCA northern sportmods), West Allis’ Mark Baker (street stocks), West Allis’ Dan Sorce (grand national) and Abrams Mike Montie (sport fours).
May 4 will also mark the debut of NEW Sports Showdown My32’s live broadcast of the weekly racing. Ted Stefaniak and John Maino will begin the broadcast beginning at 7 p.m.
Racing begins at 6 p.m. For more information please check 141speedway.com. You can also follow us on both Facebook and Twitter. The track phone is (920) 863 3377. 141 Speedway is located 15 minutes south of Green Bay on County “R” in Francis Creek.
