Super Late Model Challenge Series Returns to MIS this Friday Night
Winner Will Take Home $4000
By John Wells
The first event of the Super Late Model Triple Crown Challenge Series takes to Wisconsin’s Fastest Half-Mile this Friday night (May 30th). The winner of the 100 lap feature will receive $4000 while the runner-up takes home $2000. The race will pay $450 to start. The overall champion of the three race series will also receive $5000 at the annual MIS banquet in November.
“We want to see a great field of cars in our Triple Crown Challenge at Madison,” said MIS owner Terry Kunes. “We’ve upped the purse this year because we want people to know that we are committed to super late model racing.”
A very competitive field of cars from throughout the region is expected to be at Madison on Friday night. “We’ve already received inquires from several states so we’re anticipating a very solid field,” added Kunes.
After opening night this past Friday brought out fourteen super late models including several past track champions, the field is looking stellar for Friday night.
One driver who had a strong run at the opener was Steve Rubeck who finished second to multi-time track champion Bobby Wilberg.
Rubeck summed up his fortunes this way, “With one of the bigger pay days, I think we’ll see some really fast cars and close racing. 40 laps of green flag racing on Friday night was good, a veteran wins it and hot shoe Jeremy Miller was coming in a hurry. With some more track time this week the 61 should be better in all areas. Looking forward to it.”
Pit gates open at 3:30 with practice at 4:45, qualifying at 6:00, and racing at 7:30.
