Narveson: Big week ahead for area stock car tracks and fans – Post Bulletin

With Labor Day weekend upon us, it’s going to bring a very busy week for racers and fans alike. It all kicks off Thursday at Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Founatin City, Wisconsin, with the Karl Fenske Memorial Race that was rained out earlier this year.

The Modified feature will pay at least $4,999 to win. USRA B-Mods, USRA Hobby Stocks, and USRA Late Models are also on the card.

Things really heat up the next night at MTS

USMTS Mods invade the facility on Friday for a $10,000 to win extravaganza. Once again, USRA B-Mods, USRA Hobby Stocks and USRA Late Models will compete. Start time both nights is 6:45 pm with fastest laps and races to follow.

It should be two great days at the Mississippi Thunder. I would expect some USMTS pilots to show up there on Thursday to compete for the biggest purse and get some track time before Friday’s show.

At Chateau Speedway in Lansing, the track will hold its season championships on Friday. All six divisions will be in action with their normal start time at 7:15 p.m.

On Saturday, the USMTS Modifieds move to Deer Creek Speedway. This is another $10,000 to win show that will also feature USRA B-Mods and USRA Stock Cars. The races will start at 6 pm that afternoon.

In other Mississippi Thunder news, the Dirt Kings Late Model show that was rained out on August 19 has been rescheduled. It will now be a two-day show on Friday, October 21 and Saturday, October 22.

The show will pay $2,500 to win the Late Models feature on Friday and $10,000 to win on Saturday. Friday’s support classes will be USRA Modifieds, B-Mods and Hobby Stocks. Saturday support classes will be the same with the addition of the USRA Late Models.

Mississippi Thunder crown champions

Mississippi Thunder Speedway held its championship night of the season on Friday.

Keith Foss won the USRA Modified title, Joe Chisholm is the USRA B-Mod champion, Kory Ressie is the USRA Late Model champion, and Chris Hovden is the USRA Hobby Stock title holder.

Joe Chisholm is the best thing on four wheels right now. Chisholm started fourth and won his 12th show of the season. Chisholm has now won the feature race in his last seven starts in a row.

Lucas Schott started from the pole and won the USRA Modified feature for his second victory at Fountain City this season. Dustin Sorensen, Jacob Bleess, Joe Chisholm and John Doelle followed.

Brady Williamson has been looking pretty good in his USRA Hobby Stock this year. Williamson won his first notable race on Friday. Williamson stopped veteran running back Steve Holthaus for the win.

Ryan Olson won his second of the season at USRA Late Models. Olson beat out Matt LaDuke and Lance Hofer for the win.

Weather Works for Chateau

After losing the previous two weeks to rain, racing resumed at Chateau Speedway in Lansing on Friday. It was a very clean show with no caution flags during the heat races. Three of the six main races were also not neutralized. That allowed the show to wrap up just after 10 p.m., early enough for everyone to stay for the annual fireworks display that had been pushed back a couple of weeks.

Steve Wetzstein scored his third standout win of the season when he led from flag to flag in a no-caution feature. Jason Cummins started eighth and finished a distant second and AJ Hoff was third. Ryan Wezstein moved up to fourth after starting 12th and Darwyn Karau was fifth.

In the USRA Stock Cars, Andrew Eischens jumped off the front row and led every lap to earn his second win of the season. Eischens also dodged a three-way tangle between the leaders to win the Pure Stock feature as well. It was Eischen’s third victory in Pure Stock this season.

The USRA B Mods were also caution free in their role. where Noah Grinstead passed Hunter Kennedy for the lead and scored his third win at Lansing this year.

There was a lone caution flag at WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds. Kadden Kath won his fifth of the season in a Kath family dominated top five. Greg Pfeifer Jr. was second followed by Kobie Kath and Kylie Kath. This was Kadden Kath’s 10th overall victory for 2022.

In other action at Chateau, Shawn Poston topped the 15-car Hornet field for his fourth win of the year.
