(Francis Creek, WI) April 8 – 83 cars representing eight different classes filled the pit area at 141 Speedway Saturday, April 7 for the third and final “test and tune” of the 2012 “pre-season.” The shakedown session was the final one with the season opener on tap Saturday, April 14 at 6 p.m.
Some drivers made their 141 practice debut for the year, including modified driver Benji LaCrosse of Green Bay and Suamico’s Andy Kleczka in his IMCA northern sportmods.
Other newcomers included Sheboygan Falls Todd King, who was wheeling his Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprinter looking to turn a few practice laps and get an edge on the competition for the series opener, scheduled for April 21st. Close to 30 sprinters are expected to take on the high-banked, third mile clay oval.
Brian Peterson Builders Grand National champion TJ Smith of Menasha was on hand, taking just a handful of laps in preparation of division’s title defense. Seymour’s Kurt Moeller made another appearance too. “We got the car set pretty well at the last practice, and it’s still a little beat up from the Spring Thaw last weekend,” said Moeller. “I’m just here to help Rob (Krull) out, and spend some time with the kids”.
The season opener comes April 14th, with the season’s first green flag flying at 6:00 pm. For details check 141 Speedway on Facebook and Twitter @141Speedway. 141 Speedway is located 15 minutes south of Green Bay on County “R” in Francis Creek. For more information call (920) 905 1112.
