Thousand Dollar Summer for Madison Weekly Late Models

Story Image

Oregon, WI- Thanks to a host of supporting businesses posting bonuses, each and every NASCAR Late Model feature at ‘Wisconsin’s Fastest Half Mile’ will now pay $1,000 to win. A total of 15 NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series features are scheduled during the 2022 Madison International Speedway season with the standard start money set at $240 thanks to a 12% purse increase. Friday night racing is slated to begin on Friday night May 13 at the one-half mile paved high banked oval located south of the Wisconsin State Capitol.

“It all started after a call from Ray (Jager) at Powersource, he wanted to show his support of MIS in honor of his 30th year in business. Then Chris Blair at World Wide Technology Raceway reached out to let fans and drivers know that they continue to support short track racing as Cup rolls into St. Louis for the first time.” Noted Gregg McKarns, whom owns and operates MIS with his wife Angie. “Joe at RPM sent me a text saying he’d like to support this effort as well. At that point, our goal of being able to offer drivers a $1,000 top prize each weekly show was within reach. Chad Wehrs stepped up with support from four of his businesses and Frank from Pit Pay threw his hat in the ring alongside longtime MIS supporters Bobcat of Janesville, Fink’s Paving, Union 464 and Dave’s White Rock.” McKarns encourages everyone to support these businesses such as Scorezit Scorekeepers, which he got as a Father’s Day present last year.

Businesses that are interested in posting feature bonuses for other divisions including the MISfitz and Bandits are encouraged to contact Kent Orfan at 608-220-4166 or The popular Street Drags are set to begin the new season on Sunday April 24th followed by the Joe Shear Classic featuring the ARCA Midwest Tour on Sunday afternoon May 1st. Madison International Speedway is located at 1122 Sunrise Rd in Oregon, WI just south of State Highway 138.
