Five Divisions in Action Tonight

Five divisions will take to the track tonight with the Club LaMark Late Models making their second appearance of the season.  The American Ethanol Super Trucks, Dave’s White Rock Sportsman, Roto Rooter Legends, and Pellitteri Waste Systems Bandits will also be in action.  There will also be many activities for the kids including bus rides around Wisconsin’s Fastest Half-Mile during intermission.

The Late Model race will pay $1000 to win / $250 to start and is the second of three events scheduled at Madison this season.  A great field of twenty-six cars was on hand in June when Dale Nottestad picked up the win.

The Pellitteri Waste Systems Bandits will be competing for big money tonight with a $500 to win / $100 to start the feature on tap.  Bandits from throughout the region are expected to come to MIS to battle it out on the “Ring of Fire.”  Dan Snyder is the current point leader.

The Trucks and Sportsman have had some of the closest races this season and tonight will be no exception.  A tight points race between Kody Hubred, Ryan Goldade, and Will Rece fuels the excitement in the Sportsman division.

Cory Talaska still leads the way in the Legends with Aaron Moyer and Chris Lishamer in hot pursuit.

The Quest Industrial Turn Four Kids’ Club also has many activities planned for the young fans including bus rides during intermission and jobs night where kids will have an opportunity to  perform  duties around the track like Junior Flagman, Junior Announcer, trophy presenters and much more.

An open practice session begins at 12:30 otherwise pit gates open at 3:30 with practice at 4:45, qualifying at 6:00, opening ceremonies at 7:15 and racing at 7:30.  Adult admission is $12.00 with Seniors / Students at $10.00 and kids eleven and under free.
