FORMAT CHANGE FOR 141 SPEEDWAY/BADGER MOD TOUR OPENER
(WEATHER FORCES TWO DAY FORMAT TO ONE NIGHT APRIL 20)
(Francis Creek, WI) April 2 – A lack of cooperation from Mother Nature has forced 141 Speedway track officials to change their planned two day opener into a one day show on Saturday, April 20. The show will be the opener for the Custom Windows Plus Badger Mod Tour presented by Gandrud Chevrolet.
A full BMT program will be run, along with the Mike Hansel Trucking IMCA northern sportmods, Tisler Salvage street stocks, IMCA stock cars, Brian Peterson Builders Grand Nationals and sport fours. Racing gets underway at 3 p.m. on Saturday, with the pit area opening at 10 a.m. The spectator gates open at 1 p.m. The draw cutoff for drivers will be 2:30. A planned practice (weather permitting) is slated to take place Friday April 19 from 5 p.m. til dusk. A car and driver pit pass will be $20.00 while non-drivers will pay $10.00.
“The weather hasn’t been on anyone’s side lately and 141 has been no exception,” said track promoter Bruce Conard. “Shawano Speedway has already announcing they won’t be racing that night but we still need some warm dry weather to help whip our track into shape as well.”
Last fall before the snow flew 141 staff reshaped the often challenging turns three and four, widening the corners.
The April 20 opener will be a non points show for the track, with the weekly points racing starting on Saturday, April 27. Highlighting the season schedule will be the $10,000-to-win Clash at the Creek V.
